Haleigh Cummings in redhaleigh




Putnam County Sheriff’s Office initial incident report LINK

5 year old Haleigh Cummings disappeared from her bed on February 10, 2009 while her father, Ron Croslin was at work while his 17 year old girlfriend, Misty Cummings, was watching her and her 4 year old  brother Ron Jr.  According to Misty, who’s story changed more than once, she was either asleep in the bed with her, or Haleigh was asleep in a separate bed but in the same room, or she was in a different room than the two children.  She awoke to go the bathroom and noticed the back door to the trailer was propped open with a brick.  Ron Sr. was at work at the time, and we first here of the disappearance in a 911 call, that wasn’t made until Ron Sr. arrived home from his job. Haleigh’s birth mother lost custody of the two children to Ron several years ago.

Haleigh Cummings 911 call

It has almost been like Haleigh just disappeared into thin air and little has been released from the Sheriff’s office other than they are following up on tips.  Tim Miller and TES searched the area early on, and things have begun to pop in recent months as Tim came back to the area with Mark Nejame, prominent Florida attorney, to set up another search. Tim Miller has been very vocal in his opinion of Misty Croslin Cummings.

Many feel that Misty knows more than she is saying and either wasn’t there that night, is being threatened to keep her mouth shut about what really happened, or did something to the little girl herself.

There are 3 key players in the case, though the Sheriff’s office say they do not consider Ron Cummings, Haleigh’s father,or Crystal Sheffield, Haleigh’s birth mother, suspects.  They do however think there are problems with Misty.

A couple of twists in the case:

Ron and Misty married shortly after Haleigh went missing, saying it was what Haleigh would have wanted.  Misty appeared to be the happy bride, and Ron appeared to want to be anywhere other than marrying Misty.

Crystal Sheffield, who is now married to her step-brother and has a child with him,  owes $12,000 in back child support to Ron for Haleigh and Ron Jr.

Misty recently failed a polygraph and voice-stress test with basic questions being asked.

Ron was arrested after Misty’s parents and brother Hank Thomas Croslin Jr., tried to get her leave Ron. He punched Hank Jr.

Apparently Ron and Misty had a big blow out the weekend before Haleigh disappeared and she was seen partying and carousing with another man.

A decapitated rat was put in Hank’s mailbox afterwards,  and it is suspected that Ron put it there as a threat.

Hank Jr. was arrested for grand theft. Does Hank know something?  Apparently so.  A search of a very large pond was made shortly after Hank was arrested.  Police would not say what they were looking for, only that it was related to Haleigh’s case.

Police are now saying that Hank told them he went to Misty and Ron’s trailer the night Haleigh disappeared (at Ron’s request because he couldn’t locate her) and no one was home. Ron denies asking Tommy to go to the trailer and said he talked to Misty throughout the night.  Phone records tell a different story.  He tried to call her but she never answered.   Misty is still sticking to her story at this point, though she appears to have left town.

    My opinion on this case is that Haleigh went missing before Ron went to work or at a different time then what they are reporting. Another stalled call. It’s my opinion Ron lost it on his child period and married Misty to keep her close as every abusive control freak does. Just an opinion.

    I am sure Misty witnessed the abuse of this child and i’m sure she suffered some from him also. Since she’s so young and most likely an addict well, she is lying for him to continue her lifestyle of drugs. Just look at Ron. HE looks like a meth addict. Just another opinion.

    Misty Croslin Is The Main Focus She Was Responsible For Haleigh February 10.09. It Should Not Been To Hard For The Law In Palatka County To Solve This Case. They Know Misty Been Lying, They Know Misty Is On Drugs, They Know Her Family The Clan Croslins They Been Running Into Trouble So Why Are They Easy On This People And Have Let Misty Get Away With Things She Have Done. I Think The Problem First Starts With This County Palatka Task Force I Think Is Why The Haleigh Case Have Not Been Solve And I Dont Think It Was Taken Seroiusly To Begin With Hmmmm I Dont Think It Was Ever A Case. Just Another Opinion.
