How did Sir Ameir Stackhouse die?

One evening in June 2019, they had friends over, chatting on the porch while the kids played upstairs. During the get-together, Travis told Macshell that Sir had slipped and fallen down the stairs but seemed okay. After the guests left, Macshell found Sir sleeping on the couch and thought he was just tired. Travis had gone out with his friends by then.

She woke up around 2 a.m. and saw Sir still asleep on the couch with vomit on his face. She got worried and tried to clean him up, but he didn’t wake up. So, she called for help, and the police came and took him to the hospital.

Medical professionals said Sir Ameir Stackhouse had been dead for many hours before it was officially pronounced dead at 4:30 a.m. on June 22. The next day, Macshell told the cops that he had fallen down the stairs. But the coroner’s report said Sir died because he was hit hard in the stomach, which made his stomach burst. His death was called murder, and the cops began to look into it.

Who Revealed the Identity of Sir Ameir Stackhouse’s Killer?

Sir Ameir Stackhouse’s older brother revealed the identity of his killer.

After hearing what Sir Ameir Stackhouse’s mom, Macshell Davis, said on June 22, 2019, the cops didn’t fully believe her. In order to ask them questions, they brought both parents to the station. While Travis Stackhouse was at a party, he said he saw Sir fall down the stairs many times. But each time, Sir got back up and played with his brothers and sisters upstairs. After going to the bathroom, Travis saw Sir having trouble walking and throwing up. When asked if he was okay, Sir said yes.

Travis kept telling different stories every time the cops asked for more information. He said this time that he saw Travis Jr. hit Sir while they were playing. He thought Sir might have been hurt when the brothers fought. Macshell, on the other hand, said Travis used to be a good dad but that he started using drugs in 2018 and would hit his kids sometimes. They were scared of how he treated them, so she told him to stop.

Macshell also said that Travis got upset at Sir for eating the Father’s Day cheesecake when he left the house. Travis didn’t seem to care that much about being mad when his friends laughed about it. The cops then asked their oldest son, Travis Jr., what had happened. Travis Jr. said that their dad found out that Sir had eaten the cheesecake on June 21. Travis then hit Sir many times on the back of the hand and punched him in the stomach. Travis Jr. said Sir looked bad after that.

After a lot of questioning, Travis finally admitted that he got very angry and punched Sir in the stomach, making him fall. He said he kept hitting Sir, even hitting him in the face with the back of his hand many times.

Travis also said he had a metal rod in his hand from an old injury, which might have hurt Sir more than he meant to. After hearing this, the police realized Macshell didn’t have anything to do with Sir’s death, so they let her go. Travis was charged with first-degree murder.

Where is Travis Stackhouse Now?

The people who were speaking against Travis Stackhouse saw that he started to feel bad about what he did as his court date got near. He knew he was wrong and agreed to be guilty of less serious crimes in May 2021. Among these were not taking care of a child properly, being careless and killing a child by accident, and hurting a child on purpose.

His opponents said he admitted crime because he wanted to take responsibility for what he did, not because he wanted a lighter sentence. He was given 20 years in jail and will be watched for another 8 years after he starts his release. Travis is in the Stanley Correctional Institution in Stanley, Wisconsin. He is 33 years old now. The exact rules about when he could be let out of jail have not been made public.
