Person of Interest in Custody in Slaying of Detroit Neurosurgeon Devon Hoover newsusface

A person of interest was taken into custody Friday in connection to the brutal execution of a Detroit neurosurgeon last weekend, but questions still remain about who killed the beloved doctor.

Detroit Police Chief James White announced that the person of interest was taken into custody on unrelated charges, but he stopped short of calling the detainee a suspect in the death of Dr. Devon Hoover—who was found in the attic of his upscale home, wrapped up in a plastic sheet with several gunshot wounds to his head.

“That person is there for an unrelated charge but we are confident that this person has information about what transpired,” said White said in a news conference.
