Danyel was three years old, a precious little girl, full of fun and life. She was last seen at home inside her family's residence in West Sacramento, California, on November 2, 1985. When her mother, Cynthia Sparpana, was found deceased inside the residence on November 5, a victim of homicide, Danyel was not there, was reported missing and feared a possible victim as well because none of her belongings were missing from the home. Lionel Ernest Tholmer Jr. was named as the prime suspect in the Cynthia Sparpana and Danyel Sparpana's case shortly afterwards. Authorities believed that Tholmer was also responsible for the November 1985 slaying of California resident John B. Meadows. Tholmer resided in Georgia, but returned to the Sacremento area to work at McClellan Air Force Base in the mid-1980s. He was later convicted of Cynthia and Danyel's murders in November 1992. Her remains have never been located.

Many thanks to Barbara Hammons Davis, Dalton's Mom, for sponsoring little Danyel's memorial.
