John Lawrowich came out swinging against Eloise upon his release from the institution when it was learned that some of his personal artifacts were missing. Of the lost property was a silk shirt, kid gloves, two suits, an overcoat and miscellaneous clothing. He contacted prosecutor Paul Voorhies who said he would look into the matter. He may still be looking.

Mr. and Mrs. James Moore of Detroit were certain that their daughter Emma, aged 14, had been kidnapped by men posing as police detectives. It turns out they were wrong. When they went to their local precinct and relayed the story the telephone operator remembered that a colored girl had been taken to Eloise by the truancy officers. Having been skipping out during the night while her parents slept the girl found her way to trouble and ended up at the county house. Such was the peril of many seeking and lost souls of 20th century Detroit, Michigan.
