Normal One person's opinion on what happened to HaLeigh.

The following is a commentary on what I believe happened to Haleigh Cummings based upon linguistic indicators from the words of Misty Croslin, Tommy Croslin, and Ronald Cummings. The specific analysis of these words can be found at this web page. Within lies, specific words are chosen which are closest to the memory. 90% of lies contain truth. Even in the lies of those involved, we may stick together enough to know what happened to Haleigh Cummings.

Haleigh Cummings life came to an abrupt end on a February night, in 2009 when her father's teen aged girlfriend had enough of Haleigh's needs, as well as her little brother, Junior's.

Ronald Cummings, a long term addict and violent drug dealer, had himself been a childhood victim of abuse and neglect. He had known neglect as the standard of care in his own family.

Ronald had an attraction for very young girls. Any resistance to this perversion quickly dissipated with the use of substances. Stunted in his own development, he grew into a violent, defensive, and insecure young man; a menace to society. His many involvements with child protective services likely left workers exasperated in attempts to prove that the children were unsafe with him. As a last resort, they had him sign a contract in which he agreed to not strike his children other than a spanking. This would be done due to the reports of physical abuse. A signed contract could then be taken to a judge, once a report of abuse was received, and, perhaps, a judge would sign an order putting Haleigh and Junior into Florida State custody, and out of danger.

It never happened.

Emotional abuse is the most difficult to prove because by the time it is proven (testimony from the intervening professionals) the damage is done.

Ronald also agreed to get a job, which, social services likely had hoped would end his drug trade business. It did not.

A snapshot into the life of those degraded by drugs is visible in the family of Misty Croslin. Both parents addicted to drugs raised children the same way: get high, lay around, and let others pay the bills. The guilt a messianic society feels drives them to intervene and enable parents like the Croslins. Any item given to them could be quickly pawned and turned into the next high. Once high, they would lay on the couch, watch TV, and live of the production of others.

Ronald, without an education, got a job and left his children in the care of an immoral drugged 17 year old Misty Croslin. Their drug business would have to be a side job as he was going to prove to social services that he could be a man and provide for his family.

Misty was out on a sex and drug binge. She was going to prove to him that she could survive without him. He was a violent, explosive man, a danger to himself and others, and had controlled her through violence sometimes, but the threat of violence always.

Misty knew how to make money. Soulless at such a young age, she sold her dignity, along with her body, to the highest bidder. After days on end of endless sexual escapades and sleeplessness fueled by drugs, Misty was in no shape to watch the children while Ronald went to work. Ronald tried to get his mother to watch them, but she refused. Teresa Nieves, Ronald's mother, became the darling of the Nancy Grace show, complete with make-over and plentiful tears, the host brought her back repeatedly. "Miss Nancy", Ronald called her, gave indication of transparent manipulation. Grace loved it and even went as far as to say, through the cameras, that as she looked into his eyes, she "knew" him and "knew" he was a "good man". This infuriated the audience (including other talking heads who quickly labelled Ronald a "sociopath" and a "charmer".

With no one to watch the children, Misty responded with the answer that she had been brought up with; the same answer used to answer any question of inconvenience: drugs.

It is likely that she and Ronald used drugs often to put the children to sleep.

On the fateful night of Haleigh's death, the "business as usual" looked like this:

Ronald would work until 3AM, stop off at a convenience store, pick up beer, and sit down for some alone time with Misty while the kids slept.

This begs the question: Who gets up at 5AM or 6AM with the children when they wake up?

Young children wake up early, even in drug houses.

A terrible consequence is paid by children who disrupt the sleep of drugged or intoxicated adults. I've seen too many toddlers who, at an early age, knew how to make their own breakfast, or hide beneath a bed, quaking, while the drugged parent screams for silence. The violent outburst is something that Haleigh was likely very familiar with, just as she knew well what the backhand across the face meant:

take junior out of the room and keep him as quiet as possible.

Haleigh would have grown up to be an excellent lie detector, as so many abused children learn to read the faces, including micro-expressions, of anger and rage, and learn how to quickly cover up and scoot away to safety.

Ronald, of course, would know that it only takes a small portion of an oxy to put her to sleep. This would explain why, although apparently at work, he did not report what Misty had done that night. He feared being an accessory to the crime and losing junior. Of course, child protective services were even more frustrated in that the mother and her family were just as enmeshed in the drug world as Cummings and Croslins were.

Addicts aren't known for generosity in sharing drugs, but if it meant self interest, it would happen. A small portion of a pill could gain them hours of sleep, and because it is self serving, it is done.

That night, Misty was not able, even with all the pharmacological helps in the world, to stay awake. She could not bear the whining, or asking for a drink, or Haleigh's whimpers for relief from her hurting legs.

At some point, her brother, Tommy Croslin came over.

Tommy, himself, placed his presence at the crime scene. Why did he go there?

The answer would be found in self interest.

What was the allure for Tommy Croslin to go to his sister's trailer? Several theories have bantered about, but no matter what it was, we can be certain that it was something that Tommy wanted.

He may have been there to molest Haleigh, as has been suggested.
He may have come in response to a call from Misty because Haleigh had stopped breathing.
He may have gone there to rob Ronald.

Whatever the reason, what he did there was something so awful that his 15 year sentence for drug trafficking was preferred over telling the truth. This means that he was involved in the death and/or disappearance of Haleigh Cummings. Did he drug her in order to molest her? Or, did Misty demand assistance by blackmailing Tommy, promising to tell what she knew about what he had been doing to Haleigh, as Misty may have been selling Haleigh for drug money.

For addicts, it is difficult to find the bottom. But for a 17 year old who was raised her entire life by addicts, it is almost impossible to know how low she will sink.

"What profit a man to gain the whole world and lose his soul?"

This means, simply, in life, that there is nothing gained by someone who has obtained the best steak in the world, but has lost the taste buds to enjoy it. The "aristos" is gone and the labor for nothing. When the soul is lost, the dead gaze of the eyes shows no dignity, and addicts are reduced to things that make society chill with fear. I knew one who would sell her own children on the trains in NYC, for cigarettes.

Whatever it was that brought Tommy Croslin into the scene, it is bad enough that he would rather do 15 years in prison and lie to investigators, then to tell the truth and face the consequences.

We also know that when Misty Croslin called 911, the call itself is deceptive. Just as she failed polygraph after polygraph, the polygraphy of Statement Analysis shows that the call was a fake, but within it, contains elements of truth. Misty mentions things in this call that shows what was in her mind when she placed the call; the things most important to her, and things she recalled that had transpired in the hours prior to the call.

For the full analysis of the call, click here:

The basics is simple:

People report what is most important to them in order and for Misty, she reported:

1. She was sleeping
2. The door was open
3. A child was missing.

Later in the call, she was asked the size of the child, but instead answered about her hair color and talked about cinder blocks. Why?
She likely saw, in her mind's eye, Haleigh's long hair dangling as Tommy carried her out, and the blocks would be used to weigh down the body in water. As she struggled with lying, she chose words familiar to what she had just experienced.

90% of lies contain truth.

Tommy and Misty are both so deeply entrenched into the death of Haleigh Cummings that prison sentences of 15 years or more, are preferable to the consequences of having the public, the prosecutors, and other prisoners know the truth of what happened to Haleigh.

But what of Ronald?

Ronald has been deceptive since the beginning. He lied to Geraldo Rivera (see analysis)

Ronald knew what happened and helped coach Misty through the 911 call.

Some believe that Ronald was directly involved in her death and was at the scene when her body was discarded, but others believe he was still at work. Regardless, he has had reason, up to now, to keep Misty silent.

What has he done since Haleigh's death?

1. He has consistently lied.
2. He married Misty Croslin
3. He tipped Misty off to Texas Equasearch's attempt to locate Haleigh, so that Misty would not reveal this information
4. Ronald decapitated a rat and put it in his brother in law's mailbox to keep him from "ratting" out what he knew about Haleigh's Ronald's daughter)disappearance.
5. Ronald divorced Misty.
6. He has been video taped along with Misty in drug trafficking, this after his many denials of involvement with drugs in spite of a record of arrests.

The undercover tape reveals a sharper Misty Croslin, confident of the money she and Ronald were going to make in drug dealing. In spite of being followed by media, the Satsuma gang still thought they could cash in on the drug business, after failing to cash in on their 15 minutes of media fame.

Since Haleigh's death, the cast of characters has come and gone with media. Flora Hollars, Misty's grandmother, was hailed as "courageous" by some of the talking heads, but then ridiculed for being a liar (by the same talking heads) but now has made a comeback, of sorts, appearing again on television.

Attempts to blame cousin Joe Overstreet have failed miserably.

Ronald Cummings is now faced with a long prison sentence.

We will know the extent of his involvement shortly.

If Ronald cuts a deal with prosecutors in exchange for precise information on what caused Haleigh's death and where her remains may be found, we may know that his involvement began after the fact.

If he, instead, takes the drug sentencing and remains silent, we may know that he was directly involved in her death, as was Tommy and Misty Croslin.

Better to be in prison as a drug trafficker than a child killer.

Ronald is a violent man, and his daughter met a violent end. She may have been alive when they disposed of her body, which would mean that she put up a fight to breathe, howbeit a short and losing fight.

Haleigh's life was tragic; full of violence, uncertainty, neglect, and horror. Her death was the same.

Police are confident that they have the perpetrators of her death in prison.

If Ronald does not take a plea deal, it is still likely that, over time, the truth of precisely what happened to poor little Haleigh will come out, in small amounts, while the years of boredom set in.

The years between 25 and 40 are considered some of the most productive years in a person's life. For those who caused the death of Haleigh Cummings, these years will be spent in prison.

For the investigators and prosecutors who have poured their own souls into Haleigh Cummings, this is little satisfaction.

They still want justice for Haleigh Cummings.

Prayers for our little HaLeigh Cummings, wherever she may be!!
