(WWJ) Police believe she was murdered, but many questions remain in this metro Detroit mystery: What became of Danielle Stislicki?
It has been three years to the day since the Farmington Hills woman went missing after leaving her job in Southfield.
The 28-year-old, who went by “Dani,” planned to meet up with a friend for dinner the night of Dec. 2, 2016 — but she never showed up. Her Jeep was found a day later, parked outside her home at the Independence Green apartments in the area of Halsted and Grand River in Farmington Hills — with her purse inside.
Authorities believe 32-year-old Floyd Galloway Jr., a security guard who worked in her office building, was infatuated with Stislicki, asked for a ride and then killed her in his Berkley home.
Galloway, who is currently in prison serving serving 16-35 years for an attempted rape of a jogger in Hines Park, has denied knowing what happened to Stislicki.
Although her body has not been found, Oakland County Medical Examiner L.J. Dragovic in December 2018 issued a death certificate for Stislicki, saying she appears to have been a victim of assault, abducted by force and killed by violence.
Among those to testify at a preliminary hearing, a Michigan State Police forensics expert said there was a "strong indication" of Stislicki's DNA in a carpet sample taken from Galloway's bedroom; and in September, Judge James Brady ruled in 47th District Court that there is enough evidence that Galloway killed her.
The murder trial is set to begin next month.
