Misty Croslin to speak out Monday amid a flurry of speculation from her family
According to Art Harris from The Bald Truth, Misty Croslin is mad and is going to speak out Monday about her family. Her mother and father have both said they think Misty is hiding something. Her father went so far as to say she left Haleigh and Junior alone in the house.
“I talked to Misty today,” her attorney Robert Fields told Art Harris in an exclusive interview, “and she wants to make it clear that while her family is saying they are ‘distancing’ themselves from her, SHE’S the one who has been distancing herself from her family.”
Misty filed a restraining order against her brother, Tommy Croslin after claiming he punched her in the face the night of the altercation with Ronald. He has to stay away from her AND he has to give up his guns–though, as of now, he hasn’t done that. According to Tommy, he has washed his hands of Misty and wants nothing more to do with her.
Chelsea spoke publicly for the first time from her home in Massachusetts to FOX affiliate, WAWS TV.
“I don’t know anything that happened to Haleigh, and I wish to God I did. I wish that I knew where Haleigh was, and I wish I could find her and bring our baby girl home. Cause, she’s 6 years old and she does not to be out in the world without us,” said Chelsea Croslin.
“We’ve now been thrown into the spotlight of this, were known as the Cape Cod couple. I mean, just to give us a name, this is nothing I ever in my life expected to have to go through. Its obviously not Haleigh’s fault I’m going through this, but I just don’t understand why I got thrown into this so hard,” Chelsea said.
Chelsea Croslin said the chief Putnam County investigator and another officer in Haleigh’s case landed on her doorstep last weekend and brought her in for questioning.
“I was down there probably from about 9 o’clock to noon and you know. They just wanted to go over the phone lines. They wanted to go over time lines, and try to fill in gaps of what happened that night and who Misty talked to. And try and I guess get down to the end of this,” said Croslin.
Chelsea said her family has been struggling throughout this ordeal to stick together.
“If I was sitting on the outside and looking in on this family, Id see the 17 year old girlfriend and just the way everything’s happened, maybe I would go more towards the Croslin family. But, you know, I know everybody in our family and every single one of us loves children. We all love each others children and none of us would hurt them and I think they’ve geared the investigation toward the Croslins’ from day one,” she said.
“We tried starting our lives over here. We moved up here so my girls could get a good education. We could get a good home and be around our family, and when all of this got over with in Florida we could be together and just continue on with our lives and let our kids grow up and have normal lives. And now, they’re making us out to be something were not.”
Chelsea still believes Misty had nothing to do with Haleigh’s disappearance.
“Until somethings proven, were not going to believe it. Because we believe Misty. We know how good and great she is with our kids and she has 6 of her own nieces and nephews. She is one of the best people with children out there,” said Chelsea.
“She’s like my little sister. I’m not trying to say shes not a smart person, but you know, Misty dropped out of school in the 6th grade. She doesn’t have that much book smarts to be able to fool the FBI and FDLE and every other person that came there and interrogated her for hours and hours and hours and Lie detected her over and over and over… I don’t think Misty, she could do it. She’s got a good heart, a good kid, and she loves children. I would trust misty with my kids, before a lot of other people in this world.” she said. “You can see it in her eyes, all she is, is a hurt little girl. Shes gone through a lot in her life and shes going through a lot now and its tearing her apart, its really what its doing.”
Chelsea and Tim Croslin moved to Floriday to escape the stress of the investigation and to give the detectives space to “get the job done.” They say they will continue to cooperate with authorities.
Well, it sounds like even though her parents and at least one of her brothers have had enough and are publicly trying to get Misty to talk, she still has at least one ally in Chelsea. It will be interesting to see what Misty has to say Monday.
It’s still absolutely mystifying (pun intended) that Misty has been able to keep it together this long. She IS just a kid and, you’d think, could easily be outsmarted by the FBI. (It is soooo shades of Casey Anthony in that respect) How has she managed to keep whatever “secret” she’s holding and why would she want to? There are only two answers to that question, IMO. 1) She really was too high to remember or wasn’t there. (The polygraph seems to disprove the theory that she wasn’t there.It also revealed she knows SOMETHING) Or 2) Someone is threatening her in such a way that it outweighs whatever concern she might have for Haleigh. I look at her and listen to her and just can’t imagine that she actually killed Haleigh herself.
