On April 24, 2021, Dee Ann Warner spoke to her friend, crying tears of frustration, sadness, and anger. Her marriage was a disaster, she told her, and Dee said she was going to ask her husband Dale for a divorce that night.
Dee and Dale jointly owned a trucking company together, and a large farm property in Tipton, Michigan. They were successful and had financially done very well.
That evening began a series of events that changed Dee’s family forever. Dee’s phone went dead, and no one could find her. There was no activity on any of her accounts. And as her adult children and friends searched frantically for her, they found no sign of Dee anywhere.
Dee Ann Warner had vanished.
Almost immediately, Dale looked like a prime person of interest. Not just because he was the husband, and we all know what that means statistically, but his actions were bizarre and he had plenty of motive. Motive in the way of dollar signs.
The tangled web of Dee’s case began in April of 2021 and continues to this day. Dee Ann Warner is still missing, but a plethora of clues have led detectives and family to one conclusion: Dee Warner is likely deceased.
But Dale maintains his innocence in her disappearance and even claims to hope and pray she comes back home one day. He says he still loves her.
Court battles have been ongoing for various reasons, and finally in August of 2023, an arrest. Not an arrest for murder, per se, but an arrest nonetheless in the case involving her disappearance.
Where is Dee Ann Warner?
Dee Ann Warner was born in 1968 and raised four adult children by 2021. In addition, she had a younger child still living at home, a girl who was just 9 years old. Dee and Dale were parents. They were family. And they were business partners.
