This is a discussion on Poker Pro's Charred Body Found in Michigan Park within the online poker forums, in the Poker News and Events section; OMFG.
It took a week for authorities to identify the burned remains of Susie Zhao, aka "Susie Q".

Terrible that this happened, and what you said definitely does take place too often in the world, but don't you think it's irresponsible to speculate like that? Lets get the facts instead of making our own. RIP Suzy...by all accounts a good person.
Does violence not happen to men?
Or somehow is that different in your eyes?
Why do people always look for sexism or at race. Most of the time its as simple as money
I don't really think it is a debate that women are far more likely to be a victim of violence than are men. Of course violence happens to men as well and it is equally unacceptable but I'm highly doubtful this violent crime was perpetrated by a women....and they already have a male suspect arrested....what a shock.
Just to clue you in a bit to this problem, here's some stats regarding violence against women here in Canada.
7 in 10 people who experience family violence are women and girls.
Women are about 4 times as likely as men to be victims of intimate partner homicide.
In 2008 women were 10 times more likely than men to be the victim of a police-reported sexual assault.
In terms of domestic violence, some self-reported research shows men are almost as likely as women to experience it. Although some people claim that men are too embarrassed to admit a woman has abused them, the reverse is actually true: in self-reported research, men tend to over-estimate their partnerís violence while under-estimating their own. At the same time, women over-estimate their own violence and under-estimate their partnerís which explains why self-reported research often shows similar levels of violence by men and women, even though plenty of other research clearly shows that women are disproportionately the victim.
Men are more likely to initiate violence, while women are more likely to use violence in self-defence.
While most men are not abusive to their families when family violence does occur, the victims are overwhelmingly women:
Women are twice as likely as men to be victims of family violence.
Women who experience spousal violence are more likely to endure extreme forms assault including choking, beating, being threatened with a knife or gun, and sexual violence.
About 80% of victims of dating violence are women.
Girls are 1.5 times more likely than boys to experience violence at home.
So lets get a grip here...any violence against anyone is clearly a problem but violence against women is easily the bigger slice of the violence pie than violence against men.
We'll find out what happened eventually, no point in speculating or coming up with theories. Her murder may have not even been poker-related at all. Glad they made some progress on the case.
My thoughts when I heard responses to the murder too. First and foremost, I hope the family and friends have comfort/justice for this tragedy.
Also, as someone who was born in Michigan, this story feels a bit "close to home" as they say. Generally speaking, Michigan is a fairly safe state of the United States; but I guess danger can strike anywhere.
1st place finish at CardsChat 30 Day Course Freeroll (May 31, 2020). As my first ever CardsChat event, this one will always be special for me.
The murder looks very ruthless. The body was left where ordinary people would have found it. Jeffrey Bernard Morris has been accused of many crimes before. A homeless maniac allegedly accidentally meets a poker player and gives her a ride. But maybe he's covering for others and the murder story is very deep.
