Authorities say they found the remains of a Colorado boy, Gannon Stauch, who mysteriously disappeared in January.
According to the El Paso County Sheriff’s Office, remains have been found believed to have originated from Gannon in Pace, Florida, approximately 1,377 miles from the area where he disappeared.
Officers informed that they found a dead child
The Santa Rosa County, Florida sheriff’s office contacted the El Paso County sheriff’s office Wednesday to report a deceased child found north of Pensacola, reports The Denver Channel.
The district doctor performed an autopsy on the remains and “provisionally” identified the boy as Gannon Stauch.
Gannon was in the care of his stepmother Letecia Stauch when he disappeared from his Colorado Springs area. Although Stauch told CrimeOnline that she did not know where Gannon was and claimed that she had nothing to do with his disappearance, authorities arrested her earlier this month for murder and first-degree charges. Stauch sits behind bars without bail.
Stauch submitted a car after the boy’s disappearance
Stauch submitted a high-mileage car rental receipt on January 28, the day after Gannon’s disappearance, to officers. However, it has not been confirmed if a rental car was used in relation to the place where Gannon’s remains were found.
Additionally, the El Paso Sheriff’s Office will contact anyone located between February 3 and 5 in the Pace or Pensacola area at 719-520-6666 or by email at [email protected] to record
