Some activity in the Haleigh Cummings case

The police now believe Haleigh Cummings was kidnapped by someone she knew, according to this Orlando Sentinel article. They haven’t ruled out her father’s girlfriend, Misty Croslin, as a suspect and they think she may be withholding information. Misty, who was only seventeen years old, was watching Haleigh and her brother the night the little girl disappeared. Both the girl’s parents have been ruled out as suspects though. Her dad was working and her mom was living in Georgia.

I think Haleigh is probably dead, but beyond that I haven’t a clue what happened to her. Her parents sound like they tried to do the best they could for their kids, which doesn’t make them good parents, but I don’t believe they harmed her. I don’t know about Misty. I suppose time will tell.

    I’ve always been a wee bit suspicious of the girlfriend. I believe her story changed a little a couple of times. It never really made any sense to me. She could have killed her accidentally or something then disposed of her body. Its also kind of odd that Haleighs father married the girlfriend so quickly.

      There are some who suggested that the marriage as so Misty and Ronald could claim spousal privilege and never have to testify against each other. If that’s what they had in mind, they’re mistaken — spousal privilege doesn’t apply to things that happened before the marriage.

    from my understanding, the dad came home from work, discovered the daughter missing and called 911.
    was misty asleep when he got home? or was she awake, and if she was awake why the heck didn’t she call 911 immediately instead of waiting for him to come home?

    I think she discovered her missing.

    How did the Dad ever get custody of those children????? Isn’t 17 a bit young for an adult males girlfriend?
