53-year-old woman accused of leaking affidavit in Gannon Stauch case

9NEWS (Denver): The lead prosecutor in the Letecia Stauch homicide case addressed the public in a news conference Tuesday after law enforcement said a 53-year-old woman accessed and released an affidavit that had not been made public on an online crime-tracker website.

“The reasons [the affidavit was sealed] included to protect the integrity of the investigation as it contained information known only to law enforcement and the persons involved in that investigation,” said Senior Deputy District Attorney Michael Allen.

“It was also sealed to protect Gannon’s parents and relatives,” he added. “It was our plan … to present the affidavit to them and answer their questions before they saw it online or in the media. That is a courtesy I am sure everyone can understand.”
