Police asked the public for help in a grisly killing of a female pro poker player in Michigan.

Susie Zhao's body was found burned earlier this month. She was 33 years old.

Investigators are not sure yet why she was killed and are working with the possible theory that it could have something to do with her gambling.

"Everybody loved her," said friend Michelle Lagrou in an interview with WXYZ. "Nobody ever remembers her fighting with anybody ever, no conflict, no drama."

Zhao was last seen alive by her mother at 5:30 p.m. July 12, according to the White Lake Township Police Department.
