The case of Tecumseh, Michigan woman, Dee Ann Warner, is getting more complicated. Dee was reported missing on April 25, 2021. Investigative attorney, Billy Little, Jr., has been working tirelessly since March 2022 to get answers for her family. Since then, Little has produced an abundance of evidence obtained by hundreds of hours of interviewing witnesses and scouring through a mountain of paperwork. Little is convinced Dale Warner, Dee’s husband, is responsible. You can get background on the case here.
In the course of his investigation, Little discovered Dale has been busy since his wife vanished. According to Little, Dale used a false power of attorney to borrow a million dollars from Dee’s trucking business, change its name, and sell her business to another trucking company. But that’s just the beginning. Now, Little has evidence Dale used forged documents to secure a 1.429 million dollar loan from the Small Business Association (SBA) EIDL Covid Relief Program.
In the YouTube podcast, The Interview Room, hosted by nationally recognized retired homicide detective and behavior analyst, Chris McDonough, Little produced copies of the paperwork Dale used to secure the loan with the help of Mark Weisberg. “Mark Weisberg is the guy who handled the books many years ago, but then he went to prison on another case for embezzling,” Little said. “When Dee disappears, Dale brings him back in to start cooking the books.”
Little showed an Operating Agreement signed by Dale and Dee March 7, 2006. Then he showed a forged one that was two pages longer and gave Dale the authority to take out loans, set up bank accounts, and apply for credit on behalf of their farming business. In the fall of 2021, Mark Weisberg helped Dale apply for the SBA EIDL loan using the falsified Operating Agreement. When the loan wasn’t funded, Weisberg called the SBA and was told they needed Dee’s driver’s license and electronic signature. Somehow, Weisberg was able to send a photocopy of Dee’s driver’s license and electronically signed the loan as if he was Dee Warner.
Little reminded viewers Dee’s wallet containing her credit cards and driver’s license has never been located. How did Mark Weisberg obtain her driver’s license? Maybe Dale had one on file. But why didn’t Mark Weisberg mention that Dee was missing?
Then, Little produced the paperwork Dale used to covert the SBA loan for his personal use. “That is taxpayer money they’ve stolen,” Little said. “This is something the community needs to get involved in.”
Little put out a call for action. “It is up to the people to get this taken care of. And it’s up to the government to be responsive to the citizens and the people. So, get involved. Be courageous.” Little urged viewers to call the SBA Fraud Hotline at (800) 767–0385 to report abuse and contact elected officials. “By the community and the citizens taking action, we can get some movement here.”
Little continues to push for an arrest. “This is deadly serious. We need to get these guys shut down, out of business, and get justice,” Little said. “It’s time the authorities make a move.” Little described Dale Warner as a “dangerous person.”
In closing, Little said, “Many things in this life are unfair and unjust and never get dealt with. This is not one of them. I will not leave until the day I die. Until this case is resolved, I’m not going anywhere. I’m going to keep digging and the more I dig, the more crimes I find.”
