The charred body of professional poker player Susie Zhao was found in a remote Michigan park last week — and police are asking for the public's help to solve the "mysterious death."

Zhao, 33, was last seen alive by her mother at 5:30 p.m. July 12, according to the White Lake Township Police Department.

Her badly burned body was found around 8:30 a.m. the next day in a parking lot near the Pontiac Lake Recreation Area, on the outskirts of Detroit.

The high-stakes card player bounced between Los Angeles and Las Vegas but had recently moved back to Michigan to live with her parents and "confront challenges in her personal life," friends told local outlet WXYZ-TV.

"It's hard to picture her having enemies," Zhao's former roommate Yuval Bronshtein told the station.

Police didn't immediately release a cause of death and an autopsy and toxicology results from the Oakland County medical examiner are pending.

The FBI is also helping in the investigation.

Zhao's success at the card tables included walking away with more than $73,000 at the 2012 World Series of Poker Main Event, where she placed 90th, according to
