My name is Lori Hall I am Danielle’s Mom. I wanted to create a memorial site for Danielle. These are some of the memories and photo’s of her life. Would love to add your memories and photo’s of Danielle. She was 17 and a Senior at Imlay City High School when she died. The date was April 1, 2005…April Fools night and spring break week. Danielle died with her friends, Elizabeth Stopczynski, Jessica Susalla, Taylor Russell and Gaspare Campo. They were driving down Boardman Rd. in Almont Twp, Lapeer County Michigan when whoever(?) was driving veered off the side of the road hit a rock, launched them into the air, hit some trees and finally came to rest sidways in a tree. The car caught fire and they were all burned…Beth was thrown from the vehicle….I think she was in the back seat and went out the window myself…Unfortunatley we will never know for sure who was driving..The car broke in half, and yes it was the most gruesome accident in Lapeer county’s history. Certain individuals had to sign affadavit’s that they would not talk about what they observed that night. Why? The only sense of closure I personally will ever have is the information they could have given me..I didn’t get to kiss her goodbye only her casket, it was so cold, I kept thinking maybe she’s not really in there at all, I had them wrap her in a very special quilt, was supposed to be her wedding quilt from her Great Grandma Gert. It was a wedgewood blue completley hand sewn french knot took her granny around 20 years to make..none of the other Grand kids got anything like this..I think Grammy knew she would have need of it as a shroud… Danielle’s first horse was an Apaloosa named Canuck, she called him Cookie, Cookie died in 2003 at age 26, Danielle was heartbroken, she wanted to save his tail to make a memorial to him in the future…I buried that tail with Danielle, she was burned beyond recognition with no hair of her own so I figured she needed it..how twisted was that thought heh? and I couldn’t bear the thought of someone else in the future getting that tail and not knowing the significance of it. I now wish I would have requested DNA to verify the identity of Danielle and the body parts that were found afterwards. Yes I did find a burned hand at Paul’s collision in the car a month after the accident and the day they released it to Rich and Wendy(Beth’s Parents). Took it to the Dr’s and had them x-ray it for proof..It is not an alleged hand it was fact. Wendy found part of a shoe with part of a burned foot…It was Beth’s shoe with part of her burned foot still in it, she took it home a month after the accident when I went with her for the first time to the site and we found the shoe there behind the trees just laying out in plain site. Imagine parents and kids out there that your mother takes home a bit of your burned body and puts it on her dresser.. How awful that our officials did not clean up the site…for us to find these things destroyed our confidence in their trustworthyness and that they did not do their jobs. I don’t even believe they put the body parts in the right bags at this point. For those of you who know any of these kids or heard about some of this…this is what really happened to me personally. This is not heresay!
