The mysterious death of an Acadiana man is getting national attention. It's a story we've been covering for several years.

60-year old Glenn Lemoine of Patterson was last seen leaving the Cypress Bayou Casino on August 7th, 2010. Days later his body was found in the Charenton Canal.

An autopsy concluded the cause of death as undetermined which led Lemoine's family to exhume his body for more conclusive results. The second autopsy listed his death as a violence of undetermined means. But since then, the family's private investigator, John Abdella says there's still no answers.

And the case is now garnering national exposure on the Dr. Phil show. The family could not comment on what exactly is discussed on the show but from previews it seems theres a lot of pointing fingers.

But still the most puzzling of all, why Lemoine's body was found miles away from his wrecked vehicle along Highway 90.

And that's the basis behind the second autopsy. The St. Mary Parish Sheriff's Office has not pursed the case any further. But Abdella is hoping the information on Dr. Phil will open the doors once again.
