GROSSE POINTE (WWJ) – The family of a Grosse Pointe Farms woman who disappeared from the lakefront two years ago is urging State Police to investigate the case.

Standing in the spot where her mother was last seen, Joanne Matouk-Romain’s daughter Michelle Romain told reporters that local police turned away witnesses.

Romain said those witnesses have come forward suggesting foul play.

“And she was murdered,” Romain said. “I never thought for one second that that wasn’t the case.”

A witness says police have never investigated his claim that he saw Matouk with two suspicious men on the lakefront two years ago.  He says one man waved him away, making a motion with his coat like he might have had a gun in his pocket.  An attorney for the Romain family said that witness is credible and they have other witnesses as well.

Romain’s body was found a couple of months later in the Detroit River. Police have said they suspect suicide.
