FARMINGTON HILLS (WWJ) – A 23-year-old Farmington Hills woman, missing for over a week, has been found dead.

A police source told WWJ that Elizabeth Hock’s body was found in Commerce Township Thursday morning. Foul play is not suspected.

Authorities did not immediately release a possible cause of death, but the Oakland County Medical Examiner’s Office confirmed witness reports that Hock’s body was discovered on the roof of the Home Depot store in the Commerce Crossing Shopping Center — at 14 Mile and Haggerty Road — adding that she’d clearly been dead for several days.

It’s unclear at this time how she got up there.

Hock’s family last saw her alive on Tuesday, Sept. 6. Her sister, Emilie, said she last spoke with her sister that night, but wasn’t able to get a hold of her since.

Hock was driving a 1999 Gold Ford Crown Victoria, which police found Tuesday in the parking lot of that same shopping center with her purse and ID inside.

Her dad, Ed Hock, said that with no one having heard from Elizabeth for so long, they began to suspect that something bad might have happened to her.

Elizabeth Hock, who went by “Liz”, was described by coworkers at the Birmingham Athletic Club as “super, super nice.” She was taking business classes at Oakland Community College.

The family is asking for privacy at this time.

Autopsy results are expected Friday.

    Surely she was murdered, this wasn’t natural causes at age 23.
    Prayers for her devastated family, and pray that they catch the coward male who most likely killed her.
