LANSING, Mich. (WILX) - The strange disappearance of Danielle Stislicki has been gaining traction since the very day she went missing. From local media platforms to national attention on Crime Watch with Chris Hansen, her story has raised questions for the community and caused heartbreak for her family.
The case is approaching the one year mark that 28-year old Danielle Stisliki has been missing. Farmington Hills police say they believe foul play was involved in his disappearance. Danielle left her job at MetLife on Telegraph Rd., north of 10 Mile, in Southfield at around 5 p.m. Friday, December 2, 2016. She was supposed to stop home and then meet a friend for dinner. Strangely, she never showed up for the dinner meeting, nor did she return to work the next day. She was never heard from again.
Police later found her jeep locked and parked outside her Independence Green apartment in Farmington Hills. According to police, her purse was inside along with her personal identification and credit cards.
Farmington Hills detectives and evidence technicians have received extensive assistance and resources from federal, state, and local law enforcement agencies in hopes of finding Danielle.
Danielle's father says he feels in his heart that Floyd Galloway, a Berkley man charged in a Livonia sex assault and called a “person of interest” in the Stiskicki case knows exactly what happened to his daughter. He went on to say that Galloway is a serial rapist and that it's not safe that he's on the streets causing danger to the public. He doesn't know if it's related to Danielle's disappearance, but he wants people to be warned about Galloway.
Galloway rejected a plea deal in the Hines Park case on November 10, 2017. He was charged with kidnapping, criminal sexual conduct, assault with intent to commit sexual penetration, assault with intent to do great bodily harm, and assault with intent to murder. He would have faced 15-35 years in prison if he pleaded guilty to these charges. However, the intent to murder charge would have been dropped and he would have been placed in the database as a sex offender for the remainder of his life. He decided not to accept the deal.
The case will now go to trail which could last at least three weeks long.
Danielle's family hopes that Galloway comes forward and tells the truth about what was done not only in the Livonia sex assault case but in Danielle's disappearance as well. They don't believe their daughter is still alive, but they are hoping to return her body home and give her a proper goodbye. They have already issued out a $125,000 reward total for anyone that can provide any information to officers about their missing loved one.
Tips from the public are “strongly encouraged,” police said, and should be directed to the Farmington Hills Police Department’s Command Desk at 248-871-2610. Anyone who calls in to provide a tip will remain anonymous.
