Clue Indicates Slain Neurosurgeon May Have Known His Killer


New details are emerging in the brutal killing of a beloved Detroit neurosurgeon who was found dead in the attic of his upscale home over the weekend.

Dr. Devon Hoover, 53, was found dead in his attic in the historic Boston-Edison District on Sunday as officers carried out a welfare check. Authorities had been called after Hoover failed to show up at a family event in Indiana, according to Fox 2.

Hoover, who worked at Ascension Healthcare at St. John Hospital in Detroit, was found wrapped in a sheet.
