    Gannon's father is a member of the National Guard, and the Guard is assisting with search efforts.

    Due to his age and expected weather, the Major Crimes Unit is assisting in the search because they have more tools at their disposal.

TS mentioned Petco in this phone interview so members may now discuss and speculate re Petco as it relates to what she says in the phone call, but not what may be floating around in social media rumor-land.

    Stick to MSM or WS approved sources (i.e. no social media or random youtube videos). If in doubt, check with a Mod or Admin before posting so we can avoid unreliable sources and misinformation.

    Crime Online with WS member Leigh Egan is an approved source at WS; True Crime society is not.

    IF YOU ARE GOING TO SPECULATE WHETHER OR NOT LETECIA HAD HELP DRIVING TO FLORIDA DO NOT NAME THE PERSON. USE INITIALS ONLY. DO NOT ACCUSE THE PERSON OF A CRIME. IF ALL THIS IS TRUE AND LETECIA IS GUILTY IT IS LIKELY SHE HAD HELP BUT THEN AGAIN MAYBE NOT.

    PLEASE DO NOT ACCUSE ANYONE OF A CRIME. USE INITIALS ONLY.

    REMEMBER YOUR WORDS HAVE POWER! THEY WILL STAY HERE FOREVER. THINK BEFORE YOU POST.

    Thanks,

    Normally WS does not allow discussion of minors. In this case however Tricia did say that members could speculate on whether someone helped or was somehow involved in having Gannon's body transported to Florida as long as they are referred to with INITIALS ONLY.

    We are walking a fine line here. The fact that a judicial document has stated that HH is not cooperating is certainly relevant. You can speculate based on what is contained in the AA, but you may NOT insinuate that she is involved in the crime and you may not make direct accusations against her. (IOW, lots of "what ifs", "could it be that" "perhaps" etc, etc) . Just DO NOT accuse her of knowingly committing a crime.

    For instance, maybe she did absolutely nothing wrong and is just not cooperating because she doesn't want to be responsible for her mother going to jail, or perhaps she is afraid upsetting her mother.

    Gannon Stauch murder: Stepmom Letecia Stauch to represent herself | 9news.com

    Feb 26, 2021

    Letecia Stauch requested that she be allowed to represent herself going forward during Friday's hearing. Judge Gregory Werner went through a number of possibilities that Stauch could face if she represents herself. Stauch said she understood and still wanted to move forward.

    "It might sound audacious, but I'm really good at poker, and you know that saying 'You got to know when to hold them and when to fold them'? I've got the winning hand...an ace in the hole," Stauch said.

    Stauch replied no when the judge asked her if she wanted to retain counsel, but with a different set of attorneys. Stauch said she has a constitutional right to represent herself.

    The nearly one-hour hearing ended with Werner granting Stauch her request. Werner ordered that the court would appoint advisory counsel to assist Stauch with certain aspects moving forward.

    A status hearing was scheduled for next Friday at 8:30 a.m.

    Stauch has another hearing scheduled for March 11 and 12. During this hearing, the prosecution will present evidence, and a judge will decide whether there is enough for the case for it to go to trial.

    COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (KKTV) - Letecia Stauch will now represent herself in court in the case of her stepson, Gannon Stauch.

    [..]

    11 News was the only station in the courtroom, you can read the Tweet thread from Reporter Spencer Wilson below:

    https://twitter.com/Spencer_WNews?ref_src=twsrc^tfw|twcamp^tweetembed|twterm^1365368453444567040|twgr^|twcon^s1_&ref_url=https://www.kktv.com/2021/02/26/letecia-stauch-intends-to-represent-herself-in-court/

    [..]

    Judge Gregory Werner spent several minutes trying to explain the benefit of having an attorney, but Stauch continued to assert she had an “Ace in the hole” and that “two pieces of evidence would completely prove her innocence.”

    Eventually Judge Werner said it was his job to make sure she understood what she was getting herself into, and that while it wasn’t a wise decision, it is her constitutional right to represent herself.

    Stauch alleged her decision wasn’t because she thought her representation was doing a bad job, she called them “fine ladies,” but that the jail was mistreating her and blocking her from being able to see parts of the case she believes she has a right to.

    Her defense attorneys have been requested to withdraw from the case.

    In a news conference outside the courthouse after the meeting, when 11 News asked El Paso County District Attorney Michael Allen if representing yourself in a case this big with no former legal experience would be a bad move, he simply added “I think you can draw that conclusion just as well as anybody can.”

    Legal expert weighs in on Letecia Stauch potentially representing herself - KRDO

    Feb 25, 2021

    Jeremy Loew, legal expert and defense attorney, told KRDO that an Arguello Advisement is an opportunity for the judge to communicate what a defendant's responsibility would be if they decided to fire their legal counsel and defend themselves.

    Loew said, in his experience, most defendants who decide to represent themselves end up getting convicted. He said it's extremely rare for this to happen in a case with so much national attention.

    "I've never seen anybody try and represent themselves in such a high profile case. It is a huge mistake to represent yourself as a criminal defendant. It's an even bigger mistake to think that you can do it when the country, the state, and the community are watching," Loew said.

    Loew added that if Stauch does decide to represent herself, she will have limited resources to learn about the legal process and develop a defense strategy, as most jail libraries are incomplete and outdated.

    Sorry if this has been discussed/asked already, but I was wondering if LS, as her own representative, could request the trial be moved to another district using the “I can’t get a fair trial in this jurisdiction” excuse.
    Just thinking out loud, that I could picture her arguing to have the trial moved someplace else.

    To my knowledge, LS defense has not previously requested a change in venue but I recall this question coming up last summer after LS wrote a letter to the Judge.

    What Letecia Stauch's letter to a judge could mean for her case - KRDO

    In what ways can this letter hurt her case?

    "She's writing letters to the judge. It's going to be difficult for her defense team to get a change of venue in this case when she is essentially pushing the media's story. And so Judge Werner, who is the judge associated with the case, could potentially look at this letter you're bringing more media attention to this case if you're going to do that."

    Ted Bundy represented himself and we know how that turned out. His arrogance and insatiable salacious need to relive his murders by asking LEOs to testify in detail what the crime scenes looked like was a huge misstep on his part. His ego blinded him.

    IMO Letecia will also trip herself up by the same kind of narcissistic appetite for attention and self-gratification without realizing the damage she'll do to her case. And luckily, the law protects her right to dig herself into a big, ugly hole. MOO.

    If I were HH, I would be very very afraid that dear old mom wouldn't hesitate to throw me under the bus, if she thought (in her twisted mind) that it would get her off.

    Thanks @Seattle1, good to know.
    I hope LS bumps into every roadblock possible on her continued, relentless quest to make this all about HER.

    Do you think her “ace in the hole” is just more nonsensical dribble or do you think she’ll try to throw someone else directly under the bus?

    Well, buckle up, kids! This will be a wild ride as TS shenanigans always are. I have complete faith in the Colorado judge and DA Allen’s professionalism & experience, they will prevent her from making this a circus. I don’t think DA Allen will do anything but bury her with her own words, actions & 30,000 pages of discovery once trial starts. He’ll treat her no different than he would any other “defense attorney”/representing themselves. He may even be harsher on her.
    Once she’s found guilty, she’ll not be able to use “inadequate counsel” as an appeal! HA!HA!
    Go get her DA Allen. The courts will keep LS in line, I just have faith they won’t let AS & LH be victimized all over again. Here’s hoping her “2 pieces of evidence” (ace in the hole) aren’t even admissible.
    Can’t believe we are finally at this stage. #JusticeForGannon

    I was trying to find if Dellen Millard had shackles on or not when he defended himself. Granted, it was in Canada, but per news and media and court related news... it is a Judge's worst nightmare
    'Judge's worst nightmare'
    "A self-represented accused causes all kinds of problems. It really is a judge's worst nightmare," defence lawyer Ingrid Grant said in an interview.

    I agree.
    It will be a circus with her defending herself, however, I believe the family and of course, the supporters for justiceforgannon will not allow it to diminish Gannon and his parents.

    Ted Bundy defended himself in Utah and Florida? I think. Obviously it didn't fare well for him. I do recall him in business suits and free walking and talking.
