Very interesting. Thanks for that. NOW people will start talking and giving background/personality info. No sane person would come forward (while a child was missing) until she was arrested. Here we go:
Christy Suggs’ intuition warned her about Stauch when the two worked together at the Giant Crab Seafood Restaurant on Myrtle Beach’s Restaurant Row in the summer of 2014.
“I never really liked her,” Suggs said from her Florida home.
Suggs, Stauch, their children and others also went to Disney World together on vacation. Suggs described Stauch on the trip as “selfish” and “self-absorbed.” Stauch ignored what her daughter wanted, demanding they do the things she wanted instead.
There was also a dinner where Suggs’ teenage daughter wanted to pay for herself. Stauch demanded to pay because she had a discount and told people how much they owed, Suggs recalled. The problem was the total was more than they owed even without the discount.
That led to an argument that included Stauch yelling and cursing at Suggs’ daughter.
“After we had that, I was done with her,” Suggs said.
Suggs stayed Facebook friends with Stauch and when Gannon went missing in January, the stepmom posted on social media.
“I went to work and I told them, ‘This is fishy,’” Suggs said.
Stauch often talked about being a “hero” by saving her husband from a failing marriage, Suggs said. When Gannon went missing, Suggs clung to a sliver of hope that he would be found because Stauch liked being that “hero.”
But, Suggs’ intuition knew it was unlikely that Gannon was still alive. That was confirmed with Stauch’s arrest.
“I knew it was coming,” Suggs said.
