FARMINGTON HILLS, Mich. - Farmington Hills police said they have been working with Livonia police in their search for a suspect in the disappearance of 28-year-old Danielle Stislicki.
Evidence from the investigation into Stislicki's case was combined with evidence from Livonia's investigation into a sexual assault of a jogger in Hines Park. That combined evidence led to the arrest of a 30-year-old Berkley man on June 27, Farmington Hills police said.
Floyd Russell Galloway Jr. has been charged with kidnapping, criminal sexual conduct with intent to commit penetration, and assault with intent do great bodily harm by strangulation in connection to the attack on Sept 4, 2016 in Hines Park. Farmington Hills police said Galloway was acquainted with Stislicki when she worked at MetLife in Southfield and he was a security guard. He is now considered a person of interest in the Stislicki missing case.
She has been missing since Dec. 2, 2016.
"The detectives investigating the Stislicki case have spoken to Galloway in the past and have conducted previous searches at his Berkley home," Farmington Hills police said in statement released Wednesday. "Galloway is a former security guard who worked for a contracted company that previously provided security at MetLife in Southfield where Danielle Stislicki was employed. Galloway was acquainted with Danielle during his security duties at MetLife."
Farmington Hills police said several other law enforcement agencies, including the FBI, have been helping with the investigation.
“More than 60 search warrants for structures, cars and electronic data have been executed. Over 100 law enforcement officers, evidence technicians, and lab personnel have been diligently working on the Stislicki case," said Famington Hills Police Chief Chuck Nebus. "The personnel are from the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), Michigan State Police (MSP), Oakland County Sheriff’s Office, and the Cities of Farmington Hills, Livonia, Southfield, Berkley, Detroit and other local police agencies. Hundreds of pieces of potential evidence have been collected and processed by detectives from the above agencies and the lab personnel from the FBI, MSP, and Oakland County Sheriff’s Office. We are grateful to the Livonia Police Department for their outstanding assistance, which led to an arrest that may provide additional opportunities to collect evidence and identify places to search.”
