Police are currently treating Zhao’s death as a homicide. Her high-stakes gambling career is a possible motive, Detective Chris Hild of White Lake Township Police told a press conference this week.

“You have to determine whether or not this is a coverup, or this may be some sort of retaliatory incident because of her profession,” Hild said.

The FBI has also joined the investigation into her death, according to local news channel WXYZ-TV Detroit.

White Lake Township Police did not immediately respond to Business Insider’s request for comment.
