Stepmom ‘violently bludgeoned Gannon Stauch, 11, to death in his bedroom before reporting him missing’ – The Sun
GANNON Stauch was violently bludgeoned to death in his bedroom hours before he was reported missing, according to an arrest affidavit obtained by The Sun.
That affidavit states that the boy’s stepmother Letecia then went about cleaning the murder scene, and had the boy’s own sisters pick up carpet cleaner, trash bags and baking soda to aid in her clean-up efforts.
Authorities now believe that Letecia murdered Gannon shortly after 2pm on January 27.
It was a violent crime according to investigators, and there was “blood spatter on the walls and enough blood loss to stain his mattress, soak through the carpet, the carpet pad and stain the concrete below his bed.”
She then ordered Gannon’s younger sister to play outside when she returned from school a short time later.
When Letecia’s own daughter returned home that day, she sent the two girls to the Dollar Store according to the affidavit.
Once there, Leticia texted her daughter Harley asking for “carpet cleaner, trash bags and baking soda.”
There is no suggestion Laina knew what happened to her brother in the affidavit, but it does note that Harley has refused to cooperate with police.
Letecia reported Gannon missing soon after, but her story dramatically "changed multiple times over the following days” states the affidavit.
“Letecua lied to investigators on multiple occasions, has unexplained abnormal behavior such as obtaining a rental car, disconnecting her cell phone from the cellular network, the false reporting of an alleged rape, abnormal patterns of travel, a continuously evolving story with material changes in facts and circumstances and has since left the state of Colorado,” states the affidavit.
It is believed that Letecia disposed of the body on the side of a nearby highway, but there is no details as to how Gannon’s body got from there to Florida.
