Cause of Death

A car belonging to the respected Michigan neurosurgeon who was found dead and wrapped in a sheet in his ritzy Detroit home over the weekend was dumped at a different location — and authorities still haven’t revealed a suspect.

Now, as the investigation into Hoover’s death is on and cops are reportedly questioning his friends, neighbors, and acquaintances, Chas. Verheyden Funeral Homes’ website noted that the 53-year-old’s funeral will be held at the Cathedral of the Most Blessed Sacrament on Sunday, April 30, at 1.30 pm. A day prior, which is April 29, a visitation will be organized from 12 pm to 8 pm at the Grosse Pointe Park location.

The funeral home page was also filled with emotional tributes for the doctor as Cristina DiChiera shared, “Memories of Devon I will always hold dear – the way he gave tours of his house! He would pick out special art items that he thought I and my daughter would be interested in and tell us the story of how and why he acquired them and he was always interested to hear our thoughts on them. His easygoing conversational style – charming and gracious. Even though he was almost always on call and ready to run off to save a life. His passion for classical music and the classical voice in particular.”

“I will always think of him when I listen to Cecilia Bartoli and Renee Fleming. His green thumb – work all day, landscape your gorgeous property on your days off! His aesthetic – is brilliant AND creative—his humility and kindness. When my dad was dying he checked in and was incredibly thoughtful. There are so many moments I will remember and cherish. I have loved reading the comments of his patients online. He was truly one of a kind and his death is a massive loss for so many. Sending all of my love to his family,” DiChiera added.

Greer, another person who shared condolences, posted, “Condolences to Dr. Hoover’s family, colleagues, and friends. Your son and brother performed emergency brain surgery on my husband. Dr. Hoover and God saved my husband’s life. Dr. Hoover explained why the surgery needed to be done, while in recovery and finally to an ICU room, Dr. Hoover would always be there checking on my husband and me. We are so very sorry for your loss. May God comfort all of you during this time.”

Anthony Outlaw, who called Hoover his brother, stated, “To my dearest and loving family! It was just over 40 years ago that God placed us in our lives and I see that it was a blessing! Devon was my brother and I loved him dearly! Coming up as small children up to teenagers we did just about everything together. I have so many beautiful memories of all the things we ever did! When we were children he taught me how to ride a bike I also remember all the horseback rides we go on with our sisters. The list of all the beautiful memories goes on and on. But Devon had an extraordinary impact on my life. I will forever love brother and our memories I will forever cherish.”

A friend of the slain medical expert named Jeanne A Wyatt wrote, “Devon was a wonderful neighbor and friend. We first met when he moved into Indian Village and our friendship continued when he moved to Boston Edison. He was a gentle and loving soul, who we all will miss. Fly high!!!!”

However, his vehicle was mysteriously discovered abandoned on the city’s west side, Fox 2 reported. The exact whereabouts of the car were unclear.

Hoover’s body was wrapped in a plastic sheet when authorities found it during a welfare check. He reportedly was single and lived alone.

As of Thursday morning, no suspects have been arrested, but authorities believe the killing may be tied to a domestic incident.

At the time of his death, Hoover specialized in neck and back disorders for Ascension Health at St. John Hospital.

Former patients remembered him as a kind and talented physician.

“Not only was he a fantastic surgeon but just a wonderful human being,” Adam Walder, a patient of 20 years, told WXYZ.

“Those three days in the hospital [after surgery], he’d come in the morning to check on you, call you after your discharge to check on you. You just don’t see that anymore.”

Though records show that Hoover had practiced in Detroit for over two decades, social media posts indicate that he was originally from Indiana.

One Facebook photo shows the doctor smiling alongside his six sisters and parents at a party last summer.

“I’m inspired by Uncle Devon’s kindness to everyone,” one of Hoover’s nephews, Winston Lechlitner, wrote on Facebook on Wednesday.


“It’s such a tragic loss and still many unknowns, and yet, I think these all dim in the reality of the fact that his life, even though ended too soon, positively impacted literally hundreds and hundreds, if not thousands, of people.”
