Body Bags with Joseph Scott Morgan: Unraveling the Gannon Stauch Case | A Forensic Odyssey

Gannon Stauch, an 11-year-old boy from Colorado, was found dead nearly two months after he was reported missing by his stepmother, Letecia Stauch.

Gannon was initially reported as a runaway but was later classified as a missing/endangered person. Surveillance footage revealed Letecia leaving with Gannon and returning without him, raising suspicions, and then Gannon’s body was found in Florida.

His stepmother now faces multiple charges, including first-degree murder.

In this episode of Body Bags, hosts Joseph Scott Morgan and Dave Mack discuss the timeline of the case, from Gannon’s disappearance in Colorado Springs to the discovery of his body in a suitcase in Florida, the search warrants and investigation process in Gannon’s bedroom, the challenges faced by the medical examiner when examining the body, and determining the cause of death.
