Danielle "Dani" Stislicki (Born February 28, 1988) is an American woman who lived in Farmington Hills, Michigan. On the evening of December 2, 2016, she mysteriously disappeared after leaving work in Southfield. She has not been seen or heard from since.[1]


Danielle Ann Stislicki was born in Redford, Michigan on February 28th, 1988. She was the first child of Richard and Ann Stislicki. She attended Redford Union High School, and graduated in 2006. At the time of her disappearance, she worked day shifts at MetLife.

Summary of events[edit]

On December 2, 2016, Stislicki failed to arrive at home after leaving her job at MetLife at approximately 5:00 PM. She had planned to meet a friend in Fowlerville for dinner plans. The friend didn't hear from her as expected, and became worried as such behavior is very out-of-character for her.

On December 3, the friend visited Stislicki's apartment at the Independence Green complex in Farmington Hills. Danielle's 2015 Jeep Renegade was found parked in front of her apartment, with her purse, containing identification and credit cards. A rose gold-colored Samsung Galaxy Core Prime mobile phone known to be owned by Stislicki was not found in the car with her purse, nor were her keys.[1]

Within a week of the disappearance, the Independence Green apartment complex offered a $50,000 reward[2] for information leading to a conviction or if Stislicki is found alive. However, before the end of December 2016, the police conceded that she was most likely no longer alive. Based on the evidence available at the time, the Farmington Hills Police Department announced that she was likely to have been the victim of a crime. Further rewards were offered as time went on, but no new or credible leads appeared at first.

News of the case loomed large over the metropolitan Detroit area, but did not receive much national coverage.

On December 22, police searched a private residence[3] in Berkley, and seized, among other items, a mattress. Two months later, more items, including floorboards and a car, were removed. News reporters interviewed neighbors, who stated that the owner or occupant hadn't been seen in Berkley since around the time of Stislicki's disappearance. The occupant was named a person of interest in the case—Floyd Russell Galloway, Jr.[4]

Floyd Russel Galloway, Jr.[edit]

Galloway had worked as a security guard in the same building that Stislicki worked, but was no longer employed there at the time of her disappearance. Galloway was charged with kidnapping, criminal sexual conduct with intent to penetrate and aggravated assault in connection with a separate case against another 28-year-old woman, this one in Livonia's Hines Park.[5] The potential victim was able to fight Galloway off and escape to hail a passing car, from which she called the police. After a search of the park, the suspect was not found, but the victim was able to provide police with an accurate composite image which ultimately lead to his arrest, and subsequent naming as a person of interest in the disappearance of Stislicki. Galloway has also been named a person of interest in a similar case that occurred in June 2017 in Allen Park, after this victim was also able to give an accurate composite image of the suspect. Police are considering links between the three cases known thus far.[6]

Further developments[edit]

In July 2017, a group of 155 police officers, FBI agents, K-9 teams and cadaver dogs scoured Hines Park, where Galloway was alleged to have committed the multiple and various assaults he was charged with only three months before Stislicki disappeared.[7] The searchers also added that they were searching for a new piece of evidence, a brown and white comforter blanket that they believe may have been used wrap Stislicki during the crime.[8]

On December 22, 2016, Farmington Hills Police Chief Chuck Nebus released the following statement:[3]

Farmington Hills detectives and members of the Oakland County Sheriff’s Office Crime Lab were at a home in Berkley last night investigating the disappearance of Danielle Stislicki. Farmington Hills detectives and investigators from several other agencies have been involved in searches and the collection of evidence at numerous locations over the past three weeks. Detectives, evidence technicians and crime lab personnel from several law enforcement agencies have been working tirelessly and remain committed to finding Danielle and solving this case. The investigation has been progressing since day one. I understand a caring public and media are anxious for information. However, no information will be released regarding the specifics of the case in order to maintain the integrity of the investigation.

In July 2017, police served a search warrant on a home in nearby Royal Oak, where Galloway had been living since departing the Berkley home, as well as another warrant to search the Berkley home again. The Royal Oak house was all but empty, and Galloway was not present during either searches. His wife, reportedly, was uncooperative but did not protest the search. The police recovered an undisclosed amount of items as evidence.

Galloway has not been charged with a crime in regards to Stislicki's disappearance, and no new leads have appeared since the revelation of the Allen Park sexual assault case in July 2017.

A Facebook page has been created to keep the news in the public's collective consciousness and to provide the necessary information for reporting a tip to the police.[9] After nearly a year of avoiding press, Stislicki's friends were interviewed by WDIV-TV, sharing their thoughts about the ordeal.[10]
