Statement Analysis Tecia Stauch


I want to thank my family and friends in the Carolina’s who know my character and my dedication to our family.  

limited to those who know her character

I have sleepless nights everyday wondering what could of happened differently. 

Regret

Don’t let the media fool you with videos and false info.  I have cooperated with everyone and given them all that they ask for.  

avoidance of mentioning law enforcement

Does she have more that she has not been asked for?


Sometimes they let social media create these accusations to keep them busy because people involved in that nonsense have no interest in finding Gannon.  

As if police would "let" social media to create accusations to keep them "busy"----

This is insight into her thinking. Police would waste resources violating free speech in order to keep people who are not interested in finding Gannon, busy. She sees life as revolving around her.

With that said, I will only tell the truth not accusations. 

Here, rather than issue a denial, she sets up a comparison of her good works with what "could have happened differently."

She goes back six years to show what a "good person" she has been:

I have spent the last 6 years of my life fighting for custody battles, helped Albert pay for it all, was the only person who stood by him in the courtroom after courtroom.  I took the kids from coast to coast to be with each parent even driving through the night, extreme weather conditions and countless amount of airplanes. This is not to bash any parent going through pain but to say that I have pain as well.  

What of Gannon's pain? What might he be feeling now?

Did you inflict pain upon Gannon? (audio)
Did this cause him to run away?
Did you inflict physical pain upon Gannon?
Did you cause his disappearance?


Everyone remembers months upon months when I was the only provider.  

Another downplaying of Albert's fatherhood (masculinity) --see prior analysis.

Note the call for testimony is from "everyone"

Albert in Alaska and Landen was all over the place.  

As the "only" one, she now states:

We rescued the kids from horrible homes, living in motels, guns in the back of their cars, their house getting robbed, all the way up until I got the Instagram messages saying that she could not take care of them anymore.  

While Gannon is missing, she smears others.



Out of love for my step kids and my husband, I stepped in, delayed getting my doctorate, took care of them because I wanted to.  

Elsewhere, she posted that she had to because Gannon's mother would not.


Took them on adventures that most kids their age would never see.  

My husband had to prep the kids every time they went with their mom for their safety, until we eventually had them in our home 90 percent of the time.  He works crazy hours, lots of schools, training, and took care of our needs. 

I took care these two children like my very own. I wasn’t perfect but everyone saw all our pictures and the love that I gave them.  

Note the unnecessary "I wasn't perfect" is an important admission of guilt.
Note the call of testimony from "everyone" is here repeated. For her, this exaggeration is necessary ---

Was it hard sometimes? Of course, because I grew up with my step sister and all of our families got along with no problems. So it was difficult navigating through that. But, I want everyone to know that it is well with my soul because I would never harm a child especially not our children.

She avoids a reliable denial.
Would she hurt children that were not her own? 

Has she?

Why does she have the need to report, while Gannon is missing, about her childhood? "I grew up with..."

Her need to explain why she had difficulty is consistent with the unnecessary claim of not being perfect.

It is likely that she had experienced significant negative influences in childhood. Not the need she has to control information while expressing no concern for Gannon's suffering while missing.

 On Sunday, we went on a hike and Gannon was there crying with me because I was crying.  

As she recalls the hike, she could tell us anything. It is important that she report

1. Gannon was crying

2. Why Gannon was crying

3. It was because of her suffering over a stranger.

Recall the context of this statement---- Gannon is the one missing.



It was the day Kobe passed, but he had no idea who he was just that I was upset.  

Where an event "begins" in statement analysis is vital to understanding.

Something took place on this hike that is related to her emotion and to Gannon's disappearance.


I had every intention of covering up the fire that he started and protecting his feelings from what punished he thought he was going to get. 

She had the intention -- she does not state that she did "cover up" and "protect his feelings."

This is where a deceptive person wants the audience to interpret the language of intention as completed action.

The video that she posted indicated how she tore at his feelings to inflict psychological pain.



That was our plan the next day was to rectify the situation so that his little heart could stop crying. 

The next day his "little heart" could not "stop crying."

It is likely that she kept the provocation going.

I have the video because somehow my phone was recording and you can hear how sorry he was. 


She was a victim of police, Albert, social media and here she is a victim of her phone----This is "personality driven" perception as a constant victim.


I have the pictures after we returned how, so please don’t believe what these people are speculating. Albert is hurt, he has a lot on him and he has always left me in charge of the kids. He has to go through his emotions but will start to remember how I helped rescue them and have been our families rock. 

She has consistently portrayed Albert as limited in his parental capacities and here she puts the burden of trust upon Albert. It is unnecessary information regarding the disappearance of Gannon.

I’m going to make the next post just about Gannon but I wanted to clear up some of these accusations/lies. 

It is likely that some accusations are reliably and some are not.

These people have painted me to be this horrible person and I want people to know the truth, 

"that I did not cause Gannon's disappearance"? 

This would be an optimal place for the denial as she is under "accusations/lies" in context.


that I had the kids because they were in an unfit situation in which a G of Litem placed solely with me until Albert left ALAKSA. 

Instead of denial, she uses a Guardian ad Litem position (which she puts a boundary of time upon) to support her as a "good mother." This is the "need to persuade" her audience that is very sensitive (repetition)


I rescued them because I love them. That the kind of person I am who would continue to love them and treat them like my own, always and forever. 

Generally, the word "forever" (no future limitation) is something we do not want to hear enter the vocabulary of a parent/step parent of a missing child.

Note the need to explain why she "rescued" them.

Call it what you want because I sit back let people say horrible things that wasn’t True. 

**that she "sit back" (tension/body posture) and "let" people speaks to control. She is letting them while sitting back---while she is current (at the time of this writing) not "letting" them nor "sitting back" but actually answering them here.

One should question her statement of why she could not handle step parenting---- her own family life produced this need to control.


Just some of the facts. There are 100’s more so they need to be looking at finding Gannon not blaming me.

The concern is for self, not for the victim, Gannon.

They should be searching for Gannon, not blaming her, but police are keeping them busy by allowing them to post on social media.

Mental health issues evident in her controlling, blame shifting, and aggressive postings.

Some of the language is consistent with substance abuse, which is sometimes evident in a non user who is described as being "wound tight", ("dry drunk" in control) or someone who is under the influence or psychotropics.


Did she cause him to run away?

Did she cause his disappearance?

Gannon: Tecia Stauch Statement to the Press



The following is notes from a  team analysis session. It is not edited in article form and it carries few explanations of principles.  

Team analysis allows for explorations of ideas, particularly in why a certain word may be used by a subject in a given context. 

Questions, often without answers, are posed and discussed by the team. 

Gannon has been missing for more than a month.  His step mother, Tecia Stauch, released this statement to media. 

I. The Statement 
II. Analysis Notes
III. Conclusion 


I. The Statement 


"First and foremost, I would like to thank all agencies, volunteers, and community members who are working diligently and praying endlessly to bring Gannon home safe. Thank you to my husband who has stayed strong through this and protected our family to the best of his ability and our immediate & extended family members throughout the east coast. To Gannon, please come home soon because your daddy is waiting to watch the new Sonic movie that comes out this week and the cool shirt I got you to wear to the theatre is in your closet.
Social Media has been devastating from the harsh comments, speculations, threats, cyber bullying, etc. It has been a challenge when people are trying to run you off the road, waiting outside your hotel, threatening to kill you, etc. I encourage the Sheriff’s Office to take down those pages that promote negative behavior and violence. Let’s Do what Gannon would do. Be Kind to one another!
We all have engaged in something crazy online at some point but Gannon would want everyone to get along and to focus on finding him.
I know that many people have kids and are invested in this because it hits close to home for them. I would like to think that overall most people are genuine and want to do everything in their power to find G. With that being sad, Please take a step back for a moment and let me explain to you a few details that were not released. For example, just like the video that was leaked, there are additional details that were hidden due to 1) the department doing its job 2) the effects of social media and how some individuals would criticize or hinder the investigation. I chose to listen, I didn’t leak videos or information. But at this time it’s getting later in the process and we just want Gannon home. I feel the need to fill in some gaps. Now let me stress this, POLICE have known this since the first interview.
Saturday Night, G was helping me unload in the garage and cut his foot because there are a lot of tools because Albert does woodworking.
He sat on the edge of the car and we bandaged it up. He was good to go. He always loves helping his dad in the garage build things like his LEGO tables and the flower pot they built for me as a gift. After this, I noticed G kept going to the side of the house.
He told me he was checking to see if the gate was locked because he was the only one with a gate key. It made him proud to be the man of the house while Albert was away. Fast forward, we did a hike on Sunday (cleared), and shopping on Monday ( cleared as well for him getting out of the other side). Please don’t think for a second that there isn’t enough of technology to determine shadows and movement around the truck. There was also proof from my phone that we had taken a selfie in the truck in our driveway that was time stamped. We always send pictures to Albert when we are out and about or when he is away. That can be scanned for actual time verification. Last, from day one the Sheriff's office has known a description of the person/friend whom Gannon left with.
I explained to them and provided evidence. They had information about G having the key to go out the side gate. Last they have more in-depth details that go along with this pointing to who sent the person or why he may have come. Again, I repeat they have had this Initially and I was asked to keep quiet about it so they could have the best shot at doing their job and bringing G home. The last thing that they needed was a hindrance to their investigation. I encourage you to think of any suspicious cars that may have been in the area watching a few days prior and keep praying for G!
Tecia Stauch"


II. Statement with Analysis 

"First and foremost, I would like to thank all agencies, volunteers, and community members who are working diligently and praying endlessly to bring Gannon home safe.

a.     Numeric should indicate logic.  She has thought this through. 
b.     No “I” 
c.     No police mentioned (consider that she was a ‘victim’ at gunpoint of the police 
d.     Manipulative personality –(ingratiation)

Thank you to my husband who has stayed strong through this and protected our family to the best of his ability and our immediate & extended family members throughout the east coast. 
Husband has “protected our family” (qualified) which does not, contextually at the time of this statement, include Gannon.  

Priority

1.     Want to thank for “working diligently” (avoids naming law enforcement, or police, the principal driver of the search) “endless” prayer

2.     Qualification of Husband protecting family-- "to the best of his ability" may be to ridicule his manhood/protective capacities of his family (insult or backhanded compliment) 

3.     Immediate and extended family “throughout” –family conflict? Likely subject has hx of interpersonal conflicts. 

4.     She now addresses Gannon. “last but not least” type.  Afterthought. Please note the need to give him an introduction that the others in the statement did not need. 

To Gannon, 

Why does she write this as a letter?

a.     Distance
b.     Is it because he cannot ‘hear’ her? Can Gannon not “hear” her in the way that the “agencies” and her “husband” can ‘hear’ her? 
c.     Notice the introduction of each:
1.     I want to thank” (agencies)---first “person” or “people” after herself 
2.     thank you to my husband” does not need the intro of “To”, either. 
3.     Gannon needs the intro the others did not. Gannon is singled out here.  This is distancing language from Gannon. Why is it different for Gannon? Why the pause? Is it for emphasis? (a “build up”?) Slow down the pace?  Is it as if she wants the audience to wait until she gets to the actual victim here? For dramatic flair? This separates Gannon from “family” as well as “agencies”—

Combative personality; little to no empathy for Gannon---explore for early child hood abuse/attachment issues

please come home soon because your daddy is waiting to watcthe new Sonic movie that comes out this week and the cool shirt I got you to wear to the theatre is in your closet.

a.     The burden to come home is upon the victim.  This is only consistent with an older victim who has run off and is someplace safe. Given his age, the weather and her refusal to say which friend’s home he went to, this is victim blaming. 

b.     Why does she need to give a reason (outside of love) for him to come home?

c.     Would offering him a movie and “cool” shirt make him come home? 

d.     Is this offered due to guilt to make up for her abuse of him, which was evidenced in her own recording? 

e.     She does not say “watch the new movie with you…” but “to watch”---she may be jealous or even insulting ---to both Gannon and the father. 

f.      She appears to be tormented the victim as well as possibly increasing the pain to the father.  Even if deceased (guilty knowledge), the subject who perceives herself as a victim may use this as a form of justification for the actions taken. 

g.     She highlights herself as a good mother: “…the cool shirt I got you” which suggests guilt. 

h.     Did Tecia believe herself a victim here, being left out of the movies? 

i.      Was there a conflict over this shirt?  Did Gannon think it was not “cool”?  

j.      Did she taunt with, “I got you”? 

k.     Closet--- did she taunt him with masculinity (like the father)? 

l.      Did Gannon say he thought the “cool” shirt was not what he wanted as 11 year old or effeminate? 

Keep in mind that her husband protected them (not Gannon) “to the best of his ability”---- was he not ‘man enough’?  

Did she think Gannon was like his father, including movies, video games?  Did she make him wear a shirt he despised or was embarrassed by? 

Did “movie” become “theatre” as more “artsy” as ridicule

m.   Could she have taunted Gannon’s dad with, “your son is effeminate?" 

n.     Closet—did she put him into it or threaten to? 

Did she make derogatory remarks about Gannon being "in the closet"? 

o.     She praised him for being obedient WHILE missing with unnecessary language. 

p.     It appears that the subject’s bitterness leads her to attack both the victim and the father. This may be a form of justification. 

q.     Note “comes out” and “closet” in the same sentence. 

r.      Note, as step mother, she uses “daddy” to an 11 year old boy.  Is she doing this for the purpose of insult? 

s.     Did “daddy” suggest that in her perception, he was weak (“to the best of his ability”) in disciplining Gannon or getting him to be a “man” in any way? 

t.      By emasculating Gannon, is she emasculating her husband? 
To this point of the statement:

Personality – 

(a) doesn't follow expected social norms
(b) very low self awareness-- not aware of how she appears to others, 
(c )   sadistic qualities 
(d) may thrive on conflict
(e) may be skilled at insult 
(f) lacks empathy for others 

Experiences - explore childhood abuse (physical, neglect, sexual abuse) may have attachment problems stemming from this. 

She may have had a weak mother that did not protect her. FTP

May see vulnerabilities from a position of exploitation to get something she wants or needs. She approaches problems with her cognitive brain -low on emotion or emotional capacity. 

This can be an important strategy in the interview process: do not appeal to emotion. Consider a male who will allow himself to be “schooled” or controlled by her, yet can remain composed while asking questions with an atmosphere of indifference (no or low emotion). She is likely to talk more freely when she feels important---she enjoys attention and becomes angry when one has a low opinion of her.  The interviewer should not act overly impressed, but indifferent.  This causes her to work more diligently at impressing him. When she portrays herself as victim, the interviewer should respond with empathy. She likely has a high opinion of her own opinion---if so, get her to “advise” law enforcement on how to conduct the investigation (it may be too late to let her advise on the search) 

This lack of emotion may leave her inept in the world of perception that involves feelings leading to keeping her on track.

Social Media has been devastating from the harsh comments, speculations, threats, cyber bullying, etc. It has been a challenge when people are trying to run you off the road, waiting outside your hotel, threatening to kill you, etc.

Distancing language:
a.     She does not state that she was “devasted” from harsh comments (passive)
b.     Social media has been devastated: how are things for the victim? 
c.     “challenge”--- is incongruent language with “run you off the road”, “waiting outside” and “threatening to kill” ---
d.     She does not say someone threatened to “kill me” or “run me off the road” or “waited outside my hotel…” 
e.     “etc”---she wants the public to think there is more, but does not state anything else. 

Yet, it may be her perception of everyone out to get her and rather than seek shelter, she may perceive this as a “challenge” to answer or rise to.  (personality) 

This may be a fantasy that she indulges in believing it to be so. 

Where is her concern for Gannon and what may be happen to him physically or mentally - and whether he is alive at this point? Is he beyond temporal needs? (the most natural response from a parent or caretaker) 

 I encourage the Sheriff’s Office to take down those pages that promote negative behavior and violence

She is now giving more insight into her personality---she is advising law enforcement.  This is personality driven---seek her advice (carefully) on how the investigation should proceed.  Please note that this begins with “I”---she has strong psychological presence in encouraging law enforcement on what to do. 

She is not shy here. Please keep this in mind for the interview. 
Here, she does not have the same presence: 
Let’s Do what Gannon would do. 
Be Kind to one another!

Gannon is now memorialized and is used as a weapon to help her answer her challengers. She is using Gannon, who is missing, to get others to be nice to her.  This is highly manipulative and further insight into:

How self protective she is;

How indifferent she is to Gannon’s plight.

“Let’s Do what Gannon would do” is to present herself as someone in favor of Gannon---the “good guy’----which indicates to the contrary. “Let’s” is plural---she is ingratiating into her audience. 
“WWGD”—“what would Gannon do?”----consider: is she deifying him? 

This often points to death--- language of perfection, child teacher, angel, etc. 

Aligning herself with Gannon---anyone who now goes against her is, in this context, “going against Gannon.”  In this sense, Gannon is weaponized--- The LD is positive as Gannon is now used to protect her and silence those who suspect her. 

How she may have certain survival skills honed from neglect or failure to protect in childhood. She likely sees herself as clever.  Her survival itself is more clever than intellectual. 
She likely knows that she will be in confrontations.  She is sermonizing for kindness---very likely revealing her own lack. 

We all have engaged in something crazy online at some point but Gannon would want everyone to get along and to focus on finding him.

Gannon, while only 11 and missing, is, in her language, concerned about strangers getting along with his step mother.  

“We” –unifies herself with them: she has cyber bullied. 

Note also that “we” indicates that she, herself, needs the message of kindness from Gannon: She has not been kind to Gannon. 
Leakage----what has she “engaged in” that is “crazy”? Her phone and computer should be carefully analyzed. 

“At some point”--- Question for exploration: Did she cut Gannon? Did she cause him to be cut? We have all done something “crazy”----her words.  

Also In her perception, 

Gannon’s priority would be : 

a) Gannon would want (not “Gannon wants”) everyone to get along as top priority. Under what circumstances “would” Gannon “want” everyone to get along? 

b) Focus on finding him—not finding him, but “focus” on it.  Not “bringing him home” but “focus on finding…” 

c) She does not say she wants him found, but what Gannon would “want”, instead. 

I know that many people have kids and are invested in this because it hits close to home for them. 

“hits” continues thematic language--- Did the subject have a hx of confrontations/violence (from teen years onward)? 

“close to home”---consider Gannon may be “close to home”, that is, not more than a few hours drive away. 

I would like to think that overall most people are genuine and want to do everything in their power to find G.

Who is not “genuine” in wanting to find “G” ? She allows for some to not be genuine.  We should believe her. 
Gannon is now “G” ---- see guest analyst submission here  regarding the change of language. 
Consider again that order indicates priority:
Note her order revealing priority.

a) most people are genuine
b) and want to do everything in their power to find G.

With that being sad, Please take a step back 
Hike? Did she ask him to step back? He is “G” now. 
The words in red are used to call attention to a possible pattern of inadvertent releasing of information that is on her mind.  

for a moment and let me explain to you a few details that were not released. For example, just like the video that was leaked, there are additional details that were hidden due
a.     Believe her that something is hidden
b.     Note that it is passive---she does not tell us who hid these additional details. She is concealing the identity. 

 to 1) the department doing its job 2) the effects of social media and how some individuals would criticize or hinder the investigation. 
Note “criticize” before “hinder”---- how would “some individuals” (not people) be able to “hinder” the investigation?

Did our subject attempt to hinder the investigation?

I chose to listen, I didn’t leak videos or information. But at this time it’s getting later in the process and we just want Gannon home. I feel the need to fill in some gaps. Now let me stress this, POLICE have known this since the first interview.
“fill in gaps”--- burial? Missing information (skipping over)  that only she can fill in? 
He continues to be “G” ---
Saturday Night, G was helping me unload in the garage and cut his foot because there are a lot of tools because Albert does woodworking.
Note the need to explain why Gannon cut his foot. 
This is the most sensitive part of her statement----she doubles up on why blood may be found. 
Note “cut his foot” is 
a.     The foot
b.     tools fault (her explanation why)
c.     Albert’s fault (he does woodworking) 

He sat on the edge of the car and we bandaged it up. He was good to go. He always loves helping his dad in the garage build things like his LEGO tables and the flower pot they built for me as a gift. 


After this, I noticed G kept going to the side of the house.
“noticed”----she was watching him ---

He told me he was checking to see if the gate was locked because he was the only one with a gate key. It made him proud to be the man of the house while Albert was away. 

manhood 

Fast forward, we did a hike on Sunday (cleared), and shopping on Monday ( cleared as well for him getting out of the other side). Please don’t think for a second that there isn’t enough of technology to determine shadows and movement around the truck. 

Please note:  The subject is referencing to what is in the video has details that are "hidden" from the camera but is a “shadow” 

Note the need to alibi build, including the use of forensics.  

Note this in context of a lack of concern for what Gannon is going through. 

Note what one says in the negative is elevated in importance for the subject.  Note this in the use of “don’t” and “isn’t”---regarding her forensic alibi--

There was also proof from my phone that we had taken a selfie in the truck in our driveway that was time stamped. We always send pictures to Albert when we are out and about or when he is away. That can be scanned for actual time verification. Last, from day one the Sheriff's office has known a description of the person/friend whom Gannon left with.


“friend” is gender neutral---why the need to conceal? 

The claim here is that Gannon left with a friend 


explained to them and provided evidence.

Instead of reporting to them what happened, she "explained" it to them.  This is insight into her personality and how she perceives police. 


 They had information about G having the key to go out the side gate. Last they have more in-depth details that go along with this pointing to who sent the person or why he may have come. Again, I repeat they have had this Initially and I was asked to keep quiet about it so they could have the best shot at doing their job and bringing G home. 

"the best shot"----not language we wish to hear but consistent with her confrontational personality 



The last thing that they needed was a hindrance to their investigation. 

Is this what she provided? 

I encourage you to think of any suspicious cars that may have been in the area watching a few days prior and keep praying for G!
Tecia Stauch"

III. Analysis Conclusion:

In the media interview, Tecia Stauch referenced Gannon in the past tense regarding his character

This is an indication that she believes or knows he is dead. 

Tecia Stauch is not truthfully telling all she knows about what happened to Gannon, including where he went, who he went with and the cutting of his foot. 


She blames others readily and appears to be one who seeks out and enjoys confrontations. 

Her priority is not to find Gannon, but to be thought well of by others.  (reputation)

She does not show  human sympathy for what Gannon may be experiencing while missing. 

She does not see Gannon as the victim, but perceives herself to be a victim--- of police, Gannon's mother, her husband, the public, social media, etc.  In employment analysis, she would be indicated as "high risk" for fraudulent complaints and/or suits. 

She likely has as history of confrontations, and uses language consistent with altercations. She should not be working with children; particularly those at risk. 

Her own recorded video shows her as being psychologically abusive to him (recall also “I hurt Gannon” is embedded, see prior statement) 

Interview past boyfriends, school staff, family, etc.  See any possible CPS hx out of state. Her computer and phone should be carefully checked for photos and videos, as well as her social media accounts. She has written about something being hidden with regard to video. Consider her hx working with at risk children.  

She is working against the investigation rather than facilitating help to find Gannon.

She does not issue a reliable denial (“I did not cause Gannon’s disappearance”)

She sees herself as a victim of her husband, his ex wife, law enforcement and the public at large. She will likely be reluctant to re-interview, but may choose to do so as a “challenge”---if so, please see notes above regarding strategy. 

Did she cause him to run away to escape her abuse while his father was not home?

Did she directly cause his disappearance?

Did she poison him? (vomiting and defecating) 

Did she push him?


If she disposed of his body it is likely “close” in the sense of no more than a few hours drive away maximum, though it could be closer.
