11-year-old Gannon Stauch disappeared on Jan. 27. Authorities announced on March 2 that they do not believe Gannon is still alive.

“As you can see from the arrest, sadly, we do not believe Gannon is alive,” said Lieutenant Mitch Mihalko during Monday’s press conference. “Our work is only just beginning,” he said, “and you will continue to see many law enforcement officials in El Paso County over the coming weeks and possibly months as we continue our relentless pursuit of justice for Gannon and his family.”

Letecia Stauch, the stepmother of 11-year-old Gannon Stauch, was arrested by authorities in South Carolina on March 2 for murder in the first degree, along with other charges.
