Authorities in Michigan have charged a suspect with the presumed murder of a young woman who has been missing since December 2016.
As CrimeOnline previously reported, Danielle Stislicki was reported missing after she did not appear for a planned dinner date with her best friend on December 2. Police found her car parked in her driveway in Farmington Hills the next day, but said at the time that they did not believe she drove it there herself. Stislicki, 28, was last seen leaving her office at MetLife in Southfield on December 2.
The Detroit News obtained court records showing that Floyd Russell Galloway, 32, was charged with first-degree murder on Monday. Galloway, who worked as a security guard at the Southfield MetLife until October 2016, is already in jail serving a 16-35 year sentence following a conviction for an assault on a 28-year-old female jogger in September 2016. He pleaded guilty to the assault in November 2017, and authorities said as the case was being prosecuted that Galloway had been questioned in connection to Stislicki’s disappearance. And as CrimeOnline previously reported, investigators had searched Galloway’s home in January 2017 after identifying him as a person of interest in the missing persons case.
It is not known what evidence led to the formal murder charges against Galloway, and there is no indication in the Detroit News report that Stislicki’s body has been found.
Attorney General Dana Nessel told the Detroit News that authorities would be holding a press conference on a high-profile homicide investigation on Tuesday, but did not confirm that it was Stislicki’s case.
This is a developing story. CrimeOnline will provide further details when more information is available.
