Who was Devon Hoover? Wiki, Bio, Age, Family, Found Shot Dead Wrapped in a Sheet in Attic

Devon Hoover was killed in what police believe is a domestic situation that turned violent. His car was discovered at a separate location and the Detroit Police Department told DailyMail.com that the homicide unit is investigating.

The Ascension Michigan Hospital doctor, who is believed to have lived alone, was considered one of the top medical professionals in the state. A Detroit neurosurgeon was found fatally shot and wrapped in a sheet in his penthouse after police conducted a wellness check on his $1.2 million mansion.

The motive for the “wonderful” surgeon’s murder has yet to be confirmed and no arrests have been made since his body was discovered Sunday night. The 53-year-old man was found dead in his $1.2 million mansion in Detroit’s Boston-Edison Historic District. Police visited the home after he reportedly failed to show up for a family party.

The lucrative area is one of the most exclusive neighborhoods in the city, and according to its website, numerous Michigan celebrities, including heavyweight boxer Joe Louis and baseball star Willie Horton, have lived there. Hoover’s neighbor, Jonathan Shearrod, told the Detroit News: “It’s going to take some time to understand what happened.”

He said the renowned neurosurgeon lived alone, but was an “anchor on the block” and was “extremely involved in the neighborhood,” regularly hosting parties and functions at his luxurious home. “I just can’t imagine anyone experiencing that at home or just having to deal with that kind of terror where you live.”

According to Law and Crime, Hoover’s deleted profile on the hospital’s website stated that he had “a special interest in the treatment of disorders of the neck and back.”

The biography says that after completing his medical training at Indiana University School of Medicine, he completed his residency at Hendry Ford Hospital in Detroit.

“He also completed fellowships, one in peripheral nerve surgery at Louisiana State University College of Medicine with Dr. David Kline, and one in Pediatric Neurosurgery at Children’s Hospital of Michigan with pediatric neurosurgeon Dr. Alexa Canady,” add a bio.

Ascension Michigan Hospital said in a statement: ‘Devon Hoover, MD, was a dedicated and highly respected member of the Ascension Michigan family and will be greatly missed by our community.

“Our deepest condolences and sincerest prayers go out to his family, friends, and fellow associates during this incredibly difficult time.” Hoover was previously named in the Hour Detroit Magazine as one of Detroit’s Top Neurological Surgeons in 2008.

The shooting has shocked the upscale neighborhood, and several of Hoover’s friends, family, and former patients have paid tribute to the lead physician on social media. One of his colleagues wrote on Facebook: ‘Rest in peace beautiful and kind soul. We will always miss you. You taught me to love Neurosurgery working by your side in the operating room.

Your patience was unmatched. Prayers for your family and all those who knew you. We are devastated to have lost you! May your legacy and love for surgery live forever in those touched by your presence in this world.’

“Last weekend, we lost a dear colleague,” added another colleague from Ascension Hospital. ‘A very talented doctor… a man no one can say anything bad about. He was a true gentleman. He was genuine and loved helping people.’

A former patient added in a separate post that Hoover was considered “the best” and “was not like most surgeons.” “He said he wouldn’t operate unless he absolutely had to,” he continued. ‘He is Always so wonderful, knowledgeable, and supportive. We are so devastated for his family, friends, and colleagues of his. May he rest in peace.’

“I am beyond disbelief how such a horrible tragedy could happen to such a gentle and brilliant soul,” said another. ‘God bless you, Dr. Hoover…I will never forget his kindness and respect.’
