Case background

The family of JoAnn Matouk Romain says it will never give up on finding out what happened to her.

On the night of Jan. 12, 2010, Grosse Pointe Farms police reported Matouk Romain, then 55, walked out of her evening prayer service at St. Paul on the Lake Catholic Church, continued walking across the street right into Lake St. Clair and killed herself.

However, not everyone agrees with that finding.

“I firmly believe it was a murder,” said crime reporter Scott Burnstein.

Burnstein, an investigative reporter who typically covers mob hits, said the death of JoAnn Matouk Romain captured his curiosity. Matouk Romain’s daughters, Kellie and Michelle Romain, do not believe their mother committed suicide -- they believe something more sinister happened.

“She walked in on something, she heard something she shouldn’t have known,” Michelle Romain said.
