More info released about the mystery woman’s letter in the Haleigh Cummings case

September 25, 2009

UPDATE:  The mystery woman has now come forward and said she was delivering the letter for “a friend.”

St. Augustine Record newspaper associate editor, Richard Prior has revealed a little more information about the mystery woman that dropped off a letter at the St. Augustine Record Newspaper Wednesday afternoon.  He confirmed that it was a tip regarding the disappearance of Haleigh Cummings. LE has asked for help in locating this woman.

“My name, and the paper’s name, and address was on the envelope, sealed,” said Prior.   “It could go a long way to solving what happened.  They’re looking at the letter and envelope for fingerprints.”

Prior said it was one paragraph long, typed, and has three letters at the bottom that resemble initials.  He said he couldn’t say what the letter said, because it could hurt the case.

“If the information is accurate, it’s going to be pretty volatile,” said Prior.

The Putnam County sheriff’s Office is not commenting, but released the video in hopes someone would recognize her.

“The person needs to contact the Putnam County Sheriff’s Office so they can determine if there’s any validity to the information,” said Prior.

This just gets stranger and stranger.  All this time later, a mystery woman casually drops off a letter with a tip in it that could break the case?  Could this nightmare really come to an end–just like that? Does the warrant for the arrest of Lisa Croslin have more to do with this letter than the forgery charge they got her on? She was in custody in Nashville yesterday on a whopping $100,000 bond.  Quite steep for a forgery charge, and putting out a nation-wide warrant was also a little odd for that particular crime, IMO.

Sky News is reporting that the bond amount in now $10,004.

    Ok. Time for some brainstorming. Possibilites regarding the forgery charge:

    1. Stolen checkbook? Did she swipe a checkbook when she and Hank Jr went to “use the neighbors phone,” and he waltzed off with the gun? Did she need $$$ to get the hell outta dodge?

    2. Forged prescriptions? This is right on the heels of “NayNay’s” letter about Haleigh od’ing on OXY. Also, oddly, this woman (dressed as though she works in the medical field) drops off this letter right after this info comes out…

    3. Forged title on the red truck that Hank Jr sold? Or perhaps the mystery vehicle towed away from the pond area that got searched?

    Just throwing ideas out there as I get geeked on my morning coffee…

    This Mystery Woman is an interesting piece of the puzzle… Why not just mail the letter to the authorities? Why hand deliver it to a newspaper? It must be some pretty juicy smut she wanted plastered all over the news…hmmmmmmmmm……

    Also, I just can’t help but giggle that the guy’s name is Richard Prior. I just imagine the comedian giving the interview, and I have to laugh…..

    My real guess would be she forged a check.

    “Prior said he also shared the letter with lawyers for Ronald Cummings, Haleigh’s father. Together, they went to deliver the letter to the Putnam County officials.”

    Well I guess that would indicate that Ron wasn’t named in the letter………

    PCSO says that Lisa Croslin’s bond is $10,504. Tennessee booking shows her bond at $100,000. The charge is forgery and concerns a check Lisa Croslin cashed on Sept. 8th in the amount of $400.00. This has to do with the neighbor that Hank Croslin Jr. stole a gun from. He and his mother, Lisa Croslin went to his house to use the phone back in August. He believes the checks were stolen then.

    That would say to me she was definitely in on the gun stealing…..

    What a fine upstanding example of a mother. No wonder Misty is so screwed up.

    ok. I guess I have a little mean streak today.Could it be that Lisa Croslin needed Money to get some Teeth, just a Thought 😆
    Seriously this Case is getting stranger by the Day and yet so obvious. Something
    went seriously wrong that fateful Day Haleigh went missing and someone in that
    Family knows more than what they are saying. My Bet is on Misty but I don’t think Ron is glue less either after all that Time about 8 Month went by since Haleigh
    was reported missing. I sure hope that Case will break soon and Haleigh will be found. It will sadly have not a good Ending but that is just my Opinion.
