Normal Marie Antoinette

Post by NiteSpinR on Thu Jan 21, 2010 11:40 pm

Wonder where in blazes they heard the name to begin with? I feel confident that it didn't come from European Studies.
ROFLMAO


Marie Antoinette was the beautiful Queen of France who became a symbol for the wanton extravagance of the 18th century monarchy, and was stripped of her riches and finery, imprisoned and beheaded by her own subjects during the French Revolution that began in 1789.
She may best be remember because of this. After she was told that the people of France were dying of starvation it is rumored she replied with laughter, "Let Them Eat Cake." There is however no real proof that she ever made this statement.
It's said that her beauty made the King impotent and 7 years passed before they consummated the marriage.


Riches, Finery, opulence, abstaining from sex for 7 FREAKEN YEARS!!!
yep... sounds just like Putnam County!

Normal "You're out of choices."

Post by Nama on Fri Jan 22, 2010 12:34 am

With half a dozen TV news cameras pointed her way, Misty Croslin bowed her head and sat quietly -- save for a few sniffles -- as she waited for the judge.

Over the past 345 days, the mousy, petite 18-year-old has become accustomed to being in the spotlight, though it might have been the brightest yet Thursday.

With shackles around her dainty wrists and legs, Croslin was led into a sterile room at the St. Johns County jail where she appeared before a judge via closed-circuit television, and members of the media.

By Thursday evening, the story of her and her ex-husband's arrests was being discussed at length on the Headline News channel, alongside Brittany Murphy's death and Tiger Woods' infidelities.

After telling her that her bond had been set at $950,000, County Judge Charles J. Tinlin asked, "What do you do for a living, ma'am?"

"Nothing," she replied.

"I'm sorry?"

"Nothing."

"How do you support yourself?"

"My mom and my dad."

At about 3 a.m. on Feb. 10, Croslin called police to say she woke up and found that her then-boyfriend's 5-year-old daughter was missing. She said she put HaLeigh and her boyfriend's other child to bed at about 10 p.m., and that was the last anyone has seen the girl.

After a day, national media outlets began to take interest in the case.

A few months later, Croslin, then 17, and Ronald Cummings, 26, were married.

After a few months, the two divorced.

Off and on, Croslin, Cummings and other members of their families have had run-ins with police, but none has had to do with the disappearance of the little blonde whom the world knows as a smiling child mugging for photographs.

With every arrest or allegation, stories were printed and cameras reappeared, giving police all the more publicity in their quest for HaLeigh.

But, in the 11-plus months since her disappearance, there has been little progress, at least in the public eye. On Thursday, the eye reopened.

Croslin's brother, Hank "Tommy" Croslin Jr., 23, was also arrested and is facing one count of trafficking prescription drugs.

Before the hearing, a deputy briefly brought him into the jail's mini-courtroom before leading him back out.

"I don't really like having all these people taking my pictures, man," Hank Croslin told the deputy.

"You don't have a choice," the deputy said. "You're out of choices."

Cummings, Croslin jailed
HaLeigh's dad, former stepmom among 5 busted in prescription drug sting
Posted: January 22, 2010 - 12:07am

Misty Croslin is the Putnam County teenager who was the last to see HaLeigh Ann-Marie Cummings, who has been missing since Feb. 10. By DARON DEAN, daron.dean@staugustine.com

By CHAD SMITH
The father of HaLeigh Ann-Marie Cummings, the 5-year-old Putnam County girl who has been missing nearly a year, and his ex-wife were arrested late Wednesday on drug trafficking charges after a monthlong undercover investigation, police said.

Ronald Lemyles Cummings, 26, is facing three counts of trafficking prescription medications, and his bond was set at $500,000, while Misty Janette Croslin, 18, is facing six counts of the same charge and was being jailed on $950,000 bond.

On Feb. 10, Croslin, then Cummings' live-in girlfriend, called police to report HaLeigh missing.

Lt. Johnny Greenwood, a spokesman for the Putnam County Sheriff's Office, said Thursday that the disappearance and the drug cases are completely separate.

"It was totally unrelated," Greenwood said. "It's really ironic how it happened."

About a month ago, investigators got an anonymous tip Croslin and Cummings were involved in a prescription drug ring, he said.

The detective assigned to HaLeigh's case was not involved in the drug investigation and, he said, wasn't even told about it until Wednesday.

In addition to Croslin and Cummings, three others were charged: Croslin's brother, Hank Thomas "Tommy" Croslin Jr., 23, of Satsuma; Cummings' cousin, Hope A. Sykes, 18, of Satsuma; and Donna Michelle Brock, 44, of Orlando.

The three were each charged with one count of trafficking prescription medication, though their bonds varied.

Hank Croslin's was set at $100,000, Sykes' at $150,000 and Brock's at $250,000.

While Putnam County police led the investigation, some of the alleged transactions were in St. Johns County, meaning some suspects would be prosecuted in St. Johns, said Sgt. Chuck Mulligan, a spokesman for the St. Johns County Sheriff's Office.

Separate jails

The Croslins and Brock were being held at the St. Johns County jail, while Sykes was being held in Putnam County.

Cummings was at the Flagler County jail because police wanted to keep him and his ex-wife separated.

The Sheriff's Office said that, on seven occasions, undercover investigators purchased the painkillers Oxycodone and Hydrocodone from the suspects and estimated the "street value" of the drugs at $3,900.

On Wednesday, according to a news release, Cummings and Croslin "purchased trafficking amounts of prescription medications from undercover investigators" and were immediately arrested.

During each alleged drug deal, Misty Croslin was involved, Greenwood said.

"The only common denominator in all of them was Misty."

Seven deals

While there were seven transactions, Croslin was charged in six. However, Greenwood said it was likely she would be charged in the seventh as well.

Croslin, Cummings and Brock would face a minimum of 25 years in prison if convicted.

Hank Croslin and Sykes are facing 15 years in prison.

Misty Croslin told County Judge Charles J. Tinlin at her first appearance in court Thursday that she had an attorney, Robert Fields, and had been in touch with him Wednesday.

He had represented her in the past, he said, and might be her attorney again.

"For right now, I am (representing Croslin), but I haven't formally filed a notice of appearance yet," Fields said Thursday afternoon.

Fields said he would try to visit Croslin at the jail either today or over the weekend.

St. Augustine attorney Terry Shoemaker worked with Ronald Cummings as the search for HaLeigh developed but knew very little Thursday about the latest charges.

"I'm not sure if we represent him on this or not," said Shoemaker. "I have to make an appointment to see him, and that won't be before (today)."

Shoemaker and partner Dan Mowrey were set to visit Cummings when they got a call from the jail Thursday.

Visit delayed

They were told all the times had been booked up in the jail's only two conference rooms, so they scheduled time for today.

While Greenwood said the cases were unrelated, Cummings' mother, Teresa Neves, told reporters she believes Croslin's bail was set purposely high to keep her locked up.

Cummings and his former wife had been seeing each other occasionally and were to meet Wednesday about 5 p.m. after he finished working at a tree-trimming job, Neves said.

She said she believes her son was staying in contact with Croslin in hopes of learning what happened to HaLeigh and hoped the arrest of her former daughter-in-law could mean a break.

"Maybe she'll flip and tell us where HaLeigh is," she said. "That is the only [good] thing that can come out of this."

Greenwood said that while police have no reason to connect the alleged drug ring with HaLeigh's disappearance, detectives hope to re-interview the suspects.

"As many times as we get to, we're going to until we get a resolution in this case," Greenwood said.

by NiteSpinR Today at 2:13 am ok ya'll don't freak out cause I am in no way defending Misty or her parents... but I was still supporting my children when they were 17 and 18. Anyone else?
I supported my oldest one until he moved out to get married, but he was in college. My other two worked, lived at home and paid room and board......not because we needed the money, but I wanted to teach them responsibility. I've helped all of them when they were ready to buy homes, etc.........but wouldn't have done a thing for them if they weren't helping themselves.
If Misty was my daughter and she wasn't attending school or working at 18 years old there would be no way in hell that I would be supporting her. It could be that her parents weren't supporting her at all, but it's kind of difficult to tell the judge that you're supporting yourself with drug money.
Question?
Do either of her parent work?

Post by Nama on Fri Jan 22, 2010 3:03 am

Dominick Pape, the Florida Department of Law Enforcement’s special agent in charge, warned the press he would not discuss the connection between Haleigh Cummings’ disappearance and Wednesday's arrests.

Haleigh vanished Feb. 10, 2009.

"I'm not going to address any questions as it relates to the Haleigh Cummings investigation," Pape said.

An un-named source close to the investigation told News 13 officials will use mandatory prison time Croslin is facing to try to get more information from her regarding Haleigh’s disappearance.

However, FDLE officials would not comment on this information.

"(Are you using that to try to get more information?) No, this is about prescription pills. (Certainly the conversation has come up though?) It's about prescription pills sir," Pape said.

Croslin sits in a St. Johns County jail, while Cummings was taken to the Flagler County Jail.

"Because of their names and their notoriety, we have to be concerned for their safety,” Pape said.

Sorry I just do not have time to read all of the previous posts. But, I did read one Re: could Haleigh have swallowed a pill? Would they be too bitter so she wouldn't? Well, if they removed the protective coating to the pill in order to make it work faster, she could have grabbed one of those and it would immediately start to disintigrate in her mouth. IDK, this seems like a plausible theory to me, esp. w/ the letter suggesting this. And, rem. the scratches on the car. :scratch:

This group of people were crushing the pills to powder form to snort it. At HaLeigh's age it is monkey see monkey do. I can see this happening. Then again it could have been purposely given to her as well. When the Dr on NG was describing death by oxycodone overdose HaLeigh probably just went to sleep and never woke up. I hope she was dead before they through her in the swamp behind the mobile home.

by cherylz Today at 7:05 am And, rem. the scratches on the car.
Croslin says the night Haleigh disappeared, a family member was staying with them. She says around 4am when Misty called them to tell them Haleigh was missing, they went outside to the van to drive to Haleigh’s home. Croslin says she immediately noticed the van was not in the same spot she left it. “I know I don’t park like that, and I was the last to drive the van.”
After a few hours, another sign the van was tampered with appeared. “The day Haleigh went missing, everyone was looking for her…she (Misty) called me later that night and said Chelsea, please tell me you’re the one who put the scratch in my van. I started crying and told her there’s no way I put the scratch in her van.”
A scratch leading from just behind the driver’s side door handle to the back tire is very visible. Croslin says that scratch was not there the last time she drove it. “The scratch---it runs all the way down the van. That’s something someone would know if you’re riding against something and steadily scratching it.”

If Misty did not have the van how did she get to the party? If someone drove Misty home and the kids were with them would they not be considered accomplices? I know this fits in to the crime somehow but how?

Normal Phase two

Post by Nama on Fri Jan 22, 2010 9:11 am

Pape said the investigation will continue through "phase two," which involves learning where the five allegedly purchased the pills and their methods of obtaining them.

Investigators are also trying to learn how long they may have trafficked the pills, he said.

He added that the sale and use of illicit prescription drugs is on a dramatic rise in Florida.

"We know 75 percent of drug-related deaths in Florida were related to prescription drugs," Pape said. "Oxycodone was related in 2008 to 941 deaths and 499 deaths in 2009."

I would really like to know what business Cobra has to try to bail out the Coslins. Leave LE alone! Let them do their damn jobs. This interference whether by Leonard
Padilla or Staubs or any other idiot who does these things for their own self-serving purposes needs to stay the hell out of LE' s way. Enough! Misty needs to stay in jail and THINK about the fact that even if she only serves 10 years of a 25 year sentence her life will be in shambles. We need to find Haleigh and bring her home, whether she is alive or dead. She needs to rest in peace and thats no cliche. If Misty can cut a deal so that we know, then let her. If she doesnt stay on the right path she will surely go back to jail eventually. I think its more important to work on Misty to tell the truth of what happened to Haleigh
and thats not going to happen with her out of jail.

I agree, Argal. It's crap . This is Misty's and Ron's battle. Let them figure it out. Anyone who volunteers to join this mess is either nuts or looking for their 15 minutes of Fame.

From the looks of that Cheshire Grin on Ron's face he doesn't look too worried, so one might think that was a possibility. My opinion is NO, he wasn't assisting anyone and he's just dumb as a rock and doesn't realize that this might be something that won't be easy to get out of.....or he might have been flying high when the picture was taken. Time will tell.

OMG! I thought Cobra was sincere when he said he needed to get out of this whole fiasco to save his sanity and family. Now he's helping to get bail posted?!? Ridiculous!

I also want to know how Misty got a lawyer so quickly. I won't even question how she'll pay him (as I know there are an incredible number of attorneys in Florida who donate their efforts pro-bono).

Interesting the idea that Ron and maybe Donna Brock, Tim Millers plant, might have been in on this.
I can't imagine Cobra placing himself in this mess again. What would he gain by getting them bailed out?

I noticed Misty looks more and more like her mother a big doper. She certainly doesn't look like the blushing bride that the "handsome" Ron married. That gal looks to me like she has aged a hundred years in just a short time.

The Satsuma gang..what a group.

I don't know if somebody else posted this but last evening they said Crystal asked for an emergency court hearing to bet Jr. They say it was granted.

Grandma Sikes can say goodbye to that little meal ticket. I am sure welfare was sending her food stamps and a check every month to care for him.

I don't know if he will be any better off with Crystal but the little guy really has no chance.

Normal Cobra speaks of bonding ONLY Misty and Tommy out

Post by Nama on Fri Jan 22, 2010 7:54 pm

After a morning filled with people scratching their heads over word that an unidentified group of people who used a private investigator to act as their media liaison stated that they were interested in posting bail for two of the five people arrest on drug charges Wednesday in Putnam County, private investigator William “Cobra” Staubs now wants clarify a few things.

As you heard first on TheSky973.com, the arrests of Ronald Cummings, Misty Croslin, Tommy Croslin, Hope Sykes and Donna Brock took place Wednesday evening and stemmed from a tip from a source with knowledge of the alleged dealing of oxycodone and hydrocodone, according to Putnam County Sheriff’s officials.

Misty Croslin is facing six counts of trafficking in prescription medications. Three counts of the same charge are pending against Cummings and one against Hank Croslin Jr., Sykes and Brock, according to the Sheriff’s Office.

Misty Croslin is being held in lieu of $950,000 bail; Cummings, $500,000; Brock, $250,000; Sykes, $150,000; and Hank Croslin Jr., $100,000.

Ronald Cummings is the father of missing 6-year-old HaLeigh Cummings of Satsuma, FL who was abducted from her home February 9, 2009. Misty Croslin was babysitting the girl and her younger brother that night and was the last person to see her. Croslin and Cummings married a few weeks later and got a divorce a few months ago.

Private investigator William “Cobra” Staubs called 97.3 The SKY Friday morning to announce that he is acting as a media representative for a group who is seeking to post bail for Misty Croslin and Tommy Croslin. Staubs called the SKY Newsroom later that day to clarify that he does not personally want to see the two out of jail. Staubs maintains he is only the messenger.

Staubs once led a pro-bono investigation into HaLeigh Cummings’ disappearance and was the source who revealed to the public via 97.3 The SKY, FOX News Channel, Headline News and several online news sites that drugs played a role in the domestic lives of Ronald Cummings, Misty Croslin, her family and perhaps might have been a factor in the child’s abduction.

Staubs left his independent investigation shortly after his arrest on charges of false imprisonment regarding the temporary cuffing of an accused capital child sex predator shortly after the man reportedly caused trouble at the HaLeighbug Information Center in Satsuma, FL where children were present.

An emergency hearing was held in Palatka on Thursday over who should get custody of Ronald Cummings Jr. after his father was arrested on drug charges.
Crystal Sheffield, whose daughter Haleigh Cummings has been missing since February, was awarded custody of her son.
Ronald Cummings Sr. is being held in the Flagler County jail, while his ex-wife, Misty Cummings, and her brother Hank Croslin Jr., who were also arrested on drug charges, are being held in the St. Johns County jail.
Sheffield was to pick up her son Friday afternoon.
If you have any information about where Haleigh may be, call Crimestoppers at 888-277-TIPS.

Normal Paid informant in Haleigh Cummings case arrested in drug bust with Misty Croslin

Post by Nama on Sat Jan 23, 2010 12:33 am

An Orlando woman who was with Misty Croslin during a road-rage incident in Lake Mary last year and was arrested with her during this week's prescription-drug bust in Putnam County was more than just a friend.

She was a paid informant for a national search group bent on one objective: finding out what happened to Satsuma 5-year-old Haleigh Cummings when she disappeared. Croslin was baby-sitting the girl one evening in early February when she said she woke up and found Haleigh missing.

Donna Brock was a volunteer member of Texas EquuSearch and part of initial searches for Haleigh. Eventually she befriended Croslin.

That relationship and trips they took together were initially meant to help investigators and searchers draw out Croslin and get her to tell them where the child was, said Tim Miller, Texas EquuSearch's founder and director.

The search group paid Brock about $3,000 to entertain Croslin and get her to open up, Miller said this week.

Paying someone to be an informant is not illegal. It is not clear whether Putnam County investigators were aware of Brock's role with the search group.

"They met each other when we were doing the search for Haleigh," Miller said. "Misty trusted her and liked her." Later, Brock, 44, indicated she could get Croslin, 18, to speak.

"Donna says, 'Tim, I think I can break her. I think I can find out what happened to Haleigh,''' Miller said.

That never happened. Haleigh's whereabouts remain a mystery. An investigation into her disappearance continues in Putnam County.

Brock's life took a sharp turn Wednesday when she was arrested on a prescription-drug-trafficking charge along with Croslin. Ronald Cummings, Haleigh's father and Croslin's ex-husband, and two others also were arrested after a sting operation led by the Putnam County Sheriff's Office.

Brock was held at the St. Johns County Jail on Friday on $250,000 bail, charged with trafficking in oxycodone. Croslin was held there too, on six trafficking charges, with bail set at $950,000.

Putnam officials have said the prescription-drug case and the continued effort to determine what happened to Haleigh are separate investigations. But they expressed hope the drug case will provide new information about Haleigh's disappearance.

Croslin's relationship with Brock, who has a residence in Orlando and one in North Carolina, could be an important link for investigators, or her value in finding the child may be worthless.

"It started out she was trying to get information," Miller said.

Miller paid Brock several thousand dollars during a few months to take Croslin places and to entertain her with the hope the young woman would provide a better explanation of what happened the night Haleigh went missing, he said.

Brock was with Croslin in early October when, according to Seminole County Sheriff's Office reports, they chased and harassed a driver on Interstate 4. The incident immediately gained media attention.

On Oct. 30, Miller sent Brock a letter terminating her membership with Texas EquuSearch. He said he became concerned that her membership in the search organization would undermine its credibility.

An undercover detective with the Putnam Sheriff's Office bought prescription medications from Croslin's and Brock's group seven times recently, officials said. They estimated the drugs' street value at $3,900.

The arrests of Croslin, Cummings and the others is the latest chapter in a long, sad story surrounding Haleigh's disappearance.

The investigation has been marked by speculation, rumors and unsuccessful searches in the largely rural stretches around Satsuma and outside the nearby Ocala National Forest.

"The shame of it is all this stuff has taken the focus off of Haleigh," said Miller.

Normal Annette Sykes: "It's really hard with his daddy gone to let him go. He has been with us all of his life."

Post by Nama on Sat Jan 23, 2010 9:54 am

Haleigh Cummings' brother is now in the custody of his mother following the arrest of Ronald Cummings.

"He's already gone," Annette Sykes, paternal grandmother of Haleigh, said Friday afternoon. "It's really hard with his daddy gone to let him go. He has been with us all of his life."

The state Department of Children and Family Services confirmed Friday that Junior was taken into the custody of his mother, Crystal Sheffield, as decided by the judge.

"The first priority of DCF is the safety of all children," John Harrell, a spokesman for DCF, said.

Haleigh was reported missing from her Satsuma home on Feb. 10, where she lived with her younger brother, Ronald Junior, in the custody of Ronald Cummings.

Cummings and the children's biological mother, Crystal Sheffield, have been estranged for several years.

Sheffield's former attorney, Kim Picazio, was glad to hear the news.

"It looks like the amount of bond will keep Ronald in jail for a while, so naturally the child would go to the biological mother in this case," Picazio said. "It is definitely the safest place for Junior."
Sykes declined to comment as to whether she knew the drug trafficking was taking place.

"Right now we are just basically numb," Sykes said.

Arraignment is expected to take place in mid-February, Chris Kelly, State Attorney's Office spokesman, said.

It is sad - if Haleigh had stayed with this crew until she was 18 maybe it would have been Haleigh standing there. Thats whats so sad. The cycle never gets broken unless there is someone to intervene that cares more about the children than the drugs.

Croslin says the night Haleigh disappeared, a family member was staying with them. She says around 4am when Misty called them to tell them Haleigh was missing, they went outside to the van to drive to Haleigh’s home. Croslin says she immediately noticed the van was not in the same spot she left it. “I know I don’t park like that, and I was the last to drive the van.”
After a few hours, another sign the van was tampered with appeared. “The day Haleigh went missing, everyone was looking for her…she (Misty) called me later that night and said Chelsea, please tell me you’re the one who put the scratch in my van. I started crying and told her there’s no way I put the scratch in her van.”
A scratch leading from just behind the driver’s side door handle to the back tire is very visible. Croslin says that scratch was not there the last time she drove it. “The scratch---it runs all the way down the van. That’s something someone would know if you’re riding against something and steadily scratching it.”
Remember Misty talking about the blanket "they took in the van"? I thought, "who is they"? What van?"

I am so happy Crystal now has custody of Jr. Looks like she didn't need an attorney at all..she just needed to be patient. She knows how Ron is. She knew he would end up back in jail.

Crystal lives with Marie on that farm in Baker County. I think Jr. will love it there, instead of that little shambles of a home in Waletka with Ron cussing, screaming and dealing drugs 24/7.

And good ole boy Cobra. WTH?? He left the case and needs to stay gone from the case. No way anyone will come up with this much money to bail Misty and Ron out. IMHO, they are also a flight risk.

Haleigh Cummings Update: What is Going On?
Posted on January 23rd, 2010
by Simon Barrett

Now that the dust has settled a little bit, it is possible to take a step back and look at the events that have unfolded in the past 72 hours. The one thing that I am certain of is that Putnam County are not the bunch of ‘losers’ that so many commenter’s have remarked about.

They move in a clear and clinical fashion. For the most part they try and avoid showing their cards. This makes sense. Loose lips sink ships was a slogan used in world war two. It is a good slogan. They are not forthcoming with the press, occasionally they throw a crumb our way, but mostly they prefer to keep themselves to themselves.

I am sure that the Caylee Anthony debacle has many police services rethinking their approach to the press, you cannot blame them.

It is however possible to make some observations based on actions. And the past 72 hours are a great example. There are five people in custody related to the Haleigh Cummings case, but none are accused of anything directly linking them to the case.

Is this an application of ‘pressure’? Well I would say yes.

It is an interesting adventure to look at who was caught in the dragnet, and why!

Misty Croslin is the prime person of interest. The police have said time and time again that she might be the key to unlocking the case. With her now behind bars could they be getting closer to unraveling this case?

Misty was the live in babysitter/lover/care giver/wife/ex wife of Ronald Cummings, she was also the last peson to see Haleigh Cummings. She now sits in jail with something like a million dollar bond to crack. Of course there is always some idiot that wants the publicity, so it likely is a matter of time before someone does a Leonard Paddila and bails the numbskull out. Rumor has it that Mistyis deathly scared of being behind bars, so this is a very handy form of psychological pressure.

Ronald Cummings has all but been cleared of any direct involvement in the disappearance, but in my mind he likely does know more than he has told so far. However there is also significant psychological pressure on him while he remains in jail. Obviously he cannot care for Jr. While in this position and Crystal Sheffield the biological mother has been granted temporary custody. There is little love lost between Ron and Crystal and I am sure that this situation is causing him great anguish.

Tommy Croslin is also an interesting member of this merry band of friends and family. Jail likely does not unduly bother him, this is hardly his first brush with the law. He most certainly may have information that could assist in solving the crime. In my opinion there are two possibilities, he could have been involved directly, but much more likely he was a willing helper after the event.

That leaves the other two miscreants Hope Sykes and Donna Brock. At first sight it might appear that they are just cases of collateral damage, they were in the wrong place at the wrong time. However a closer inspection shows that there may be a good reason for including them in this round up.

Donna Brock was the Texas Equusearch member that Tim Miller bankrolled to befriend Misty. Did Misty spill the beans to her new BFF? There can be little chance that Donna was involved in the original event, to the best of my knowledge she had never even heard of Misty, Ron or the rest of the gang prior to the TES involvement.

That leaves Hope Sykes, it is possible that she is the collateral damage, however, I do believe that this is one of the people involved in the robbery of Misty while trying to buy drugs. The pair are friends, so once again Hope may well have information that she has received from Misty.

In my opinion this is a five way game of chicken. Everyone has a vested interest in ratting out the others. I am sure that the pressure will intensify as Law Enforcement starts to ’sweeten the pot’. Reduced bond, reduced or dropped charges, they have plenty of bargaining chips. The next few days may prove to be very interesting in this case.

Well Misty wanting to be Ron's one and only makes perfect sense. I really doubt the part about Misty working with Crystal so she would get the kids and Misty would have Ron all to herself. Maybe HaLeigh was given those drugs and tossed in the swamp. Jr was not the same competition thing being a boy. The way Misty went on and on about how if Ron brought her something they would go and by HaLeigh the same thing. I believe it was about a pair of shoes Misty rambled about that.

by lisette Today at 11:27 pm Charming...I just don't see that...Nobody could have held her this long without someone finding out about it.
I agree that no one is hiding her. I don't think Haleigh is with us any longer. None of the Satsuma bunch would have the brains to keep her hidden out anywhere. They are all dumb as rocks.

Charm, I love you to death. You know that, but I do NOT believe for one second that Misty and Crystal were working together.

I do NOT think Haleigh is being hidden in Florida or any other state. I do NOT think that Crystal, Crystal's sister or mother or any relative took Haleigh and is hiding her. If only that were true, I would be a happy camper.

This has gone on long enough. Haeligh, IMO, is dead. I hate typing these words and if I am wrong, I will publicly eat crow.
