WHITE LAKE TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) — Police say the death of a professional poker player whose burned body was found in Michigan doesn’t appear related to her work.
A 60-year-old man was charged with murder Tuesday in the death of Susie Zhao.
The 33-year-old Zhao grew up in suburban Detroit and recently returned from the Los Angeles area.
Her body was found in mid-July at the Pontiac Lake Recreation Area in Oakland County, Michigan.
Police say there's no evidence so far that poker had a role in Zhao's death.
Zhao met Jeffery Morris at a motel where she frequently stayed.
