Upcoming manuscript; Working Title:
Danise Wallace served as a reserve deputy in the beginning of her law enforcement career and later- full time as a police officer in Texas. During this period, while writing police reports for criminal cases, she began to feel compelled to tell the story of the suspicious circumstances surrounding her father’s disappearance and death and the blatant lack of interest shown by authorities.
Months after her father Danny went missing from a barge on Galveston Bay a body was found on the shore of Matamoros, Mexico. There was never a definite identification of the body, or a ruling on cause of death in conflicting autopsies. The skull of the body was damaged in a way that seemed to strongly indicate foul play. An acquaintance finally confessed his guilt in the killing to a family member.
Danise began to discover a dark and complicated web of confusion and couldn't explain the resistance of investigators to pursuing the case. She resolved to acquire as much documentation as she could and tried everything in her power to force the authorities to take action, to write an investigative report, to perform the duties of their office, to no avail.
Danise moved to Colorado in 2001 and worked for seven years as a property and evidence technician. Decades of anguish over being unsure that her father's body had actually been found, or being able to bring the killer to justice, and the lack of attention or legitimacy given to his case has inspired Danise to write this true story; not only for herself, but for those seeking answers regarding the missing and the deceased.
Danise retired from law enforcement and has made her home in Colorado with her husband, family, horses and bloodhounds. She lost her male bloodhound in 2018 to cancer.
Danise works as a private Investigator and process server in southwest Colorado, where her focus on cases involves many aspects of helping others.
