This is absolutely a horrifying. The body of a professional poker player was discovered in the Pontiac Lake Recreation Area (near White Lake Township), on Monday, July 13th. The woman had been burned to death according to WNEM.

The victim, Susie Zhao, 33, grew up in Troy, Michigan. Zhao came back to Michigan from Los Angeles on June 9th. Police have not arrested anyone in regards to the case, and are investigating to determine if this has anything to do with her professional poker career, or perhaps it is some type of cover up. Whatever the motive(s), this is truly tragic.

Susie Zhao (also known as Suzy Q), was last seen by her mother on Sunday, June 3rd, at 5:30 PM - the night before her body was found. The White Lake Township Police Department is calling on the public to come forward if you have any information that could help in this case. Maybe you were in the vicinity of the Pontiac Lake Recreation Area on that Sunday or Monday? If so, did you see anything suspicious? If you did, please contact the White Lake Township Police Department at  (248) 698-4400, or call 911.

My heart goes out to Susie's family and friends. Especially her poor mother. I am sure they are dealing with a lot of 'should have, could have, would have'. It's just human nature to wish you could have changed something you did, and that is a horrible feeling.

Again, if you have any information that could help in this case, big or small - please make the call.
