    "Stagolee" gets 9, hits on Google Books, compared to 7, for "Stagger Lee". This ngram suggests it's always been more common. This is also the the form used, for instance, in Cecil Brown's Harvard-published book on the subject, Stagolee Shot Billy and John . Shortly after the event, the murder became the subject of folk song tradition, known as "Stagolee", "Stagger Lee" and other earliest versions were likely field hollers and other work songs performed by African American laborers. The first evidence for it is a reference to "Stack-a-Lee" being performed by "Prof. Charlie Lee, the piano thumper" in the Kansas City Leavenworth Herald.
