Letecia Stauch Booked into Prison Following Murder of 11-year-old Stepson, Gannon Stauch

Letecia Stauch has been sent to prison, following the murder conviction of her 11-year-old stepson, Gannon Stauch.

Stauch was transported to the Denver Women’s Correctional Facility Friday morning, after being moved from El Paso County jail where she had been housed for the past three years. Stauch will now serve out a life sentence without the possibility of parole.

As CrimeOnline previously reported, Stauch stabbed, beat, shot, and killed Gannon inside the family’s Fountain home in January 2020. She then took great measures to cover up her crimes, by blaming numerous imaginary people and driving to Florida, where she tossed Gannon’s body, stuffed inside a suitcase, over a bridge in Pace.

Prosecutors said that Letecia Stauch was upset about her marriage and burdened with taking care of her stepchildren, as referenced to search queries found on her phone. Gannon’s father was away at work with the US National Guard, leaving Letecia Stauch to take care of Gannon and his younger sister when the murder happened.

Stauch requested after her conviction to be placed at the San Carlos prison in Pueblo, but a judge told her it wasn’t up to him and he wouldn’t provide a recommendation even if it were.
