Lee Anthony Deposition: Video Release of Lee Anthony Deposition and Transcripts (Full)


After answering questions for more than three hours, Anthony said Gonzalez is not “Zanny the Nanny,” the person Casey said kidnapped her daughter, Caylee.

Anthony was asked questions about his thoughts on Casey's innocence or guilt, which we're told he shied away from.

However, Lee did point out Gonzalez and said this is not the woman Casey described.

"I believe my sister at this point," Anthony said during the deposition.

Gonzalez' attorneys suspended this deposition, saying they will petition the court to if they can get Lee Anthony to answer some of the questions he did not answer.

George and Cindy Anthony received a temporary reprieve due to their emotional state.
A tape of the deposition is expected to be released and news outlets will receive a copy some time Friday.
Zenaida Gonzalez claims Casey ruined her life when she said a babysitter with the same name kidnapped Caylee. Gonzalez could be one step closer to clearing her name Friday at the deposition.
Gonzalez is suing Casey Anthony for defamation for connecting her to the disappearance of Caylee.
Gonzalez's attorney, Keith Mitnik feels that the Anthonys have trashed his client’s name. Mitnik wants to hear everything Lee Anthony knows about Gonzalez.
Keith Mitnik believes he can prove during the deposition that Lee Anthony doesn't know anything about the babysitter or that there was never a Zenaida Gonzalez to begin with.


Meanwhile, Casey Anthony is scheduled to appear in court again on Monday.
Her attorney Jose Baez wants to stop the state from releasing thousands of pictures from Casey's computer and her "photobucket" account.
However, many of the images have already been released.

Haleigh Cummings Update: Home No Longer Crime Scene


Haleigh's house in Putnam County had been cordoned off as a crime scene ever since she disappeared earlier this month. But Friday, the crime scene tape finally came down.
Haleigh Cummings' Green Lane home where she was abducted from in the middle of the night is no longer a crime scene. However, Ronald Cummings said he won't live in his home after knowing his little girl was taken out of her bed.

VIDEO REPORT: Crime Tape Comes Down

Meanwhile the search teams canvassed the thick wooded area for clues.

Cadaver dogs continue to search areas around the home of Haleigh Cummings Friday.

Thursday one dog alerted on a nearby dumpster, but a thorough search found nothing.
The wooded areas are new to the cadaver dogs. The sheriff's office wants to make sure nothing was missed in the search.
Bryan Selzer and his dog Eli came from Jacksonville to aid in the search for Haleigh Cummings Friday afternoon.
"We're just doing a different area today. We're hitting mostly the wooded area that we are searching and again we are searching that for the second time to make sure that everything's covered," said Selzer.
Seven cadaver dogs searched the wooded area and investigators said they are trained to sniff out human remains. The specially trained dogs searched the Cummings' neighborhood Thursday and found nothing but rotting trash in a dumpster.
Selzer said going through the woods is more difficult than it looks.
"It just takes a lot longer; we have to take more breaks more often for the dogs to recover. But it's do-able but just takes longer," he said.

Also, the interview with Haleigh's "paternal" grandmother, Teresa Neves, Ronald Cummings, mother, appears to have been recorded earlier, due to outside lighting. Teresa Neves also told reporters both families were told to stay at their respective locations and to not impede on the search of the dumpster. Nancy also interviews missing Amber Dubois' parents and discusses a new "theory" on Amber's disappearance.

UPDATE: 2.26.09 10:45pm CST
There was a new tip and a new hunt in Thursday's search for Haleigh Cummings; however, no new answers came from either.
Haleigh, 5, has been missing for 17 days.
On Thursday morning, several teams of dogs specially trained to find human remains began searching in the area around the Putnam County mobile home park where Haleigh disappeared on Feb. 10.
Nine Putnam County deputies and seven canine teams, some from a non-law-enforcement group called Canine South, were searching "to ensure that no possibility is overlooked in the search for Haleigh."
Late in the afternoon, investigators converged on the neighborhood to search a dumpster where cadaver dogs picked up scent. However, after about six hours of scouring through the dumpster police said they found nothing that could be linked to missing Haleigh.
Investigators said three cadaver dogs noticed a scent in the same spot. The dogs and others had been combing the area as part of routine search.
"It could be various items, and may not necessarily be something related to the case," said Brian Selzer, of Canine Search and Rescue as investigators searched through the plastic bags found in the dumpster.
Selzer explained that the dogs brought to Satsuma on Thursday have been trained to alert only on the scent of human decomposition, not meat or dead animals. He said the dogs could hit on a something a small as a bandage used to cover a person's bloody cut.
Detectives went through the large dumpster by hand, and then a backhoe was brought in to go through some excess debris at the bottom of the container.
After going through every square inch of the dumpster, they gave up the search.
"There's several anomalies that can cause a K-9 to hit. We don’t know what's in the mind of the dog. The dog did what's it trained to do. We did what we have to do afterward, which is to search. Everything comes done to the human search, and we found nothing of consequence," said Putnam Sheriff's Office Major Gary Bowling. "We don’t know why the dog hit, but there's nothing there that indicates that we need to search any further."
Investigators said they did search around the same dumpster days ago, shortly after Haleigh's disappearance, but found nothing. Investigators said they never went into the dumpster until Thursday evening.
According to investigators, all of the garbage in the area in the days following Haleigh's disappearance was taken to a special part of the county's landfill and gone through piece by piece. They said there was no sign of anything relating to the disappearance of Haleigh.
The cadaver dogs are expected to return to the area on Friday to continue to search the area for clues.


Law enforcement and CSI are going through a construction dumpster near the home of missing Haleigh Cummings at this moment.

Earlier today, a cadaver dog made a "hit" on the dumpster that could indicate human remains within the dumpster.

Law enforcement and investigators are combing through the dumpster at this time.

Haleigh's mother, Crystal Sheffield, remains missing. UPDATE: Crystal has re-appeared at the family's makeshift tent and has submitted a DNA test.

Story just breaking and more information will be posted as available.

UPDATE: Haleigh Cummings: Mother, Crystal Sheffield, Missing


Crystal Sheffield has returned to the family's makeshift tent-home. She stated moments ago that she did consent to a DNA sample. Law enforcement followed Crystal to the office of the doctor where Crystal had an appointment earlier today and obtained the DNA sample.

Investigators are still combing through a dumpster, located less than two-tenths of a mile from the Cummings' home, where Haleigh was last seen.


Haleigh Cummings' biological mother, Crystal Sheffield has been missing since this afternoon after learning that law enforcement was on their way to obtain a DNA sample.

Before Crystal drove away, Crystal told family members, "Tell them I have a doctor's appointment.", referring to investigators that were on their way to obtain the DNA sample.

Cadaver dogs were also brought in today and were taken to the home of Haleigh Cummings, where she was last seen. Handlers also took the dogs to other nearby locations. News reports state that Crystal Sheffield and Ronald Cummings were also at the locations where the cadaver dogs were taken.
Seven cadaver dogs and nine officers were sent to search an area surrounding the home of Haleigh Cummings. Deputies said the search was being conducted to make sure that nothing is overlooked.
The cadaver dogs and officers searched for human remains. The cadaver dogs were seen sniffing along the panels underneath mobile homes -- in the event a body was placed underneath.
Investigators believe Haleigh Cummings was taken from her home on Green Lane in Satsuma on February 9. Sheriff Jeff Hardy, as well as everyone involved in the investigation said they continue to hope that Haleigh is found alive and in good health.
Investigators said Thursday's search was not in response to leads received from the family or the public, but as a routine procedure that has proven itself in other missing child cases.
The canine teams are a part of Canine South, a non-law enforcement organization out of South Georgia that specializes in canine searches. The teams consist of cadaver dogs that specifically seek out human remains.
Investigators said more dogs will search the area again Friday.

The family also has released home video of Haleigh from Christmas 20008.

HOME VIDEO RELEASED:Haleigh Opening Presents On Xmas


Misty Croslin, Haleigh's father's girlfriend was the last one to see the 5-year- old. Croslin was taken away for questioning again Thursday morning.

It's been nearly three weeks since the 5-year-old was taken out of her bed in the middle of the night. Deputies said Haleigh was home asleep with her little brother and father's girlfriend when the crime happened.

Emergency Hearing To Be Held Wednesday -- Judge To Rule Regarding Depose of Cindy And George Anthony

An emergency hearing will be held Wednesday afternoon to determine whether the parents of Casey Anthony will have to appear for a deposition in the civil case against their daughter.
A defamation lawsuit was filed months ago by Zenaida Gonzalez, a woman who shares the same name as a baby sitter with whom Casey Anthony claims she left her daughter, Caylee, at an Orange County apartment complex. Caylee's remains were found in December.
Gonzalez is seeking more than $15,000 in punitive damages, claiming she has been harmed by being linked to the case. Casey Anthony claims she left her daughter with another woman by the same name.
Brad Conway, the attorney who represents George and Cindy Anthony, filed a motion requesting that the depositions be canceled or delayed until May, when a ruling is expected on whether Gonzalez's lawsuit is frivolous.
Conway claims Gonzalez's attorneys will ask embarassing questions that are irrelevant to the lawsuit. Gonzalez's attorneys have invited the media to witness and videotape the depositions, which Conway said is a publicity stunt.
Conway also requested that his clients be deposed via a written questionnaire, similar to the deposition Casey Anthony is providing in the case.
Gonzalez's attorney do not want to wait until May for the depositions, saying they want their client's name cleared as soon as possible.
Lee Anthony, the brother of Casey Anthony, is scheduled to deposed by Gonzalez's attorneys on Friday.

Judge to Decide If Cindy and George Must Testify In Gonzales Civil Suit


There will be a court hearing Wednesday afternoon so Casey Anthony's parents can try to get out of answering questions under oath Thursday morning in Zenaida Gonzalez's lawsuit.
Zenaida Gonzalez of Kissimmee is suing Casey for blaming a nanny by the same name of kidnapping Caylee Anthony, Casey's 2-year-old daughter who was found dead in December.
The Anthonys had previously agreed to answer questions, but now they're claiming they're too emotionally fragile.
Casey's brother Lee is scheduled to answer questions in the defamation lawsuit on Friday morning.


Lawyers for Zenaida Gonzalez are stepping up their fight in the defamation case against Casey Anthony. They are trying to shoot down Casey's argument that she did not defame Zenaida, because she told detectives it is not the specific Zenaida Gonzalez who disappeared with Caylee in June.
Zenaida's attorneys say Casey later changed her story, which defamed Zenaida Gonzalez a second time.
"She wants to squawk and say, 'How was your client hurt?' Well, it's kind of a no-brainer. Just tell the public what you told the police and you could have cleared her name early on," Zenaida's attorney, Keith Mitnik, said.
Tuesday afternoon, the attorney representing Cindy and George Anthony filed a court motion to prevent them from having to answer questions in the lawsuit against their daughter Casey, which they are scheduled to do on Thursday.

Brad Conway Attempts To Delay George And Cindy Anthony's Depositions In Gonzalez Civil Suit

BRAD CONWAY:"..the suit is nothing more than an attempt to annoy and embarrass them."

Brad Conway has filed a motion to prevent George and Cindy Anthony from giving depositions in the Zenaida Gonzalez civil suit against their daughter, Casey Anthony.
The lawyer for George and Cindy Anthony said in the motion Tuesday that forcing them to give depositions in the suit is nothing more than an attempt to annoy and embarrass them.
Gonzalez is suing their daughter for defamation after Casey Anthony claimed a babysitter named Zenaida Gonzalez kidnapped her daughter Caylee.
Casey Anthony was charged last October with first-degree murder in connection with Caylee's death. Casey remains in Orange County Jail awaiting trial later this year.
In his motion, attorney Brad Conway points out that George Anthony recently tried to commit suicide. He also acknowledged that both he and Cindy Anthony are getting professional help to deal with the grief of losing their granddaughter.
Conway argues that the Anthony's don't know Gonzalez. Conway is asking the court to delay the Anthony's depositions until after the judge decides in May whether this civil suit will even continue.
Conway said Gonzalez' lawyers are asking for punitive money damages. Conway states the Anthony family, precisely Casey, has no money for her to win.

The Anthony's are scheduled to give depositions Thursday, pending the judge's ruling to Conway's motion.

Casey Anthony "Anything But Clothes" Doll Sold On Ebay

The Casey Anthony "Barbie"... Shows More Emotion and Beauty Than The Real Casey Anthony

A disgrace to the American Flag.

Casey Anthony: Disgrace to Mothers and Motherhood

A "Casey Anthony" doll wrapped in an America flag is being sold on the auction site eBay.
The doll is the latest in a series of items people have tried to sell related to the case.

What a concept. Can you imagine all the possibilities that sick individuals can have with this? "Killer Mom Casey Doll" complete with Sunfire Car with empty pizza box and "rotten" smell. Can you see it? Casey Barbie shopping at Target on Best Friend "Amy's" stolen checks? What fun for the kids. I could go on and on... but I choose not. I can only imagine that some sicko is already out there planning out more morbid scenarios that my mind does not want to visit.

Earlier this year, a Jacksonville company marketed a Caylee doll. That venture turned out unsuccessful after enough people and criticism caused the company to pull the doll from the market. During the same time, someone was trying to sell Casey Anthony voodoo dolls on eBay.

Here is a link to the flag-wrapped doll.

In regard to the "repainting" of this doll's face, I do have to admit, this "Casey" has more emotion and beauty than that of the real Casey Anthony.

Casey's decision to wear an American Flag for the "Anything But Clothes" party shows that she is either quite creative, or quite mental. I choose the latter. However, most murders are creative and mental, some, actually have high I.Q's. Casey's choice to wear the American Flag was a disgrace in my opinion, as Casey, herself, is a disgrace to mothers and motherhood.

Rivera Issued A Tresspass Warning On Saturday Night

Fox News anchor Geraldo Rivera was issued a trespass warning after a contentious interview with the father of a missing Putnam County girl.

As the search for 5-year-old Haleigh Cummings entered its 13th day, the county was abuzz about the contentious interview with her father Saturday night with Rivera.

Cummings got upset when Rivera said he'd been told by members of Haleigh's mother's family that Cummings hit the child and has said he is 75 percent sure he knows who has her. Accusations of drug use, Ronald being a drug informant, and other alleged statements indicating a dark side to the missing girl's father's life were denied by Cummings.

Rivera also threw allegations of child abuse at Ronald Cummings, although coming from Haleigh's mother's side of the camp. Geraldo asked Cummings if he had ever hit his daughter, Haleigh. Geraldo said Crystal Sheffield, Haleigh's mother, has photos to prove the fact. Ronald Cummings stated that he had only disciplined Haleigh by spanking her behind, "as in guidelines with DCF (sic) to spanking." Although the photo of Haleigh depicted scratches on her face and chin area, along with some bruising, Crystal Sheffield stated that the school had sent a letter home with Haleigh that day saying Haleigh received the injuries after a fall on the sidewalk. Crystal Sheffield's mother, Marie Grifis, grandmother of Haleigh, pressed that the injuries were not consistent "with "a fall on concrete."

Putnam County Sheriff’s deputies arrived on the scene later, and issued Rivera the trespass warning at the request of the two property owners on whose land the Cummings family is camping while their trailer remains closed off as a crime scene.

A trespass warning means Rivera would be arrested if he came back onto the property. Rivera told deputies he understood and stated he would not come back to the address, but declined to sign the trespass warning, according to a sheriff’s office report.

Ronald Cummings, his four year old son, and seventeen year old girlfriend had lived in makeshift tents before Friday, when someone donated a travel camper for their use. Their double-wide home is still considered a crime scene and the family is not allowed entry into the home.

story still developing

Haleigh Cummings Search: Geraldo at Large Saturday 2.21.09 episode

Geraldo Rivera visits Satusuma, Florida for exclusive interviews with both Crystal Sheffield, and Ronald Cummings, mother and father of missing Haleigh Cummings.

Geraldo uncovers damning allegations, mainly from Haleigh Cummings' mother's side of the family. Worth a watch.
(video below)

In an exclusive interview, Geraldo Rivera obtains allegations of verbal and physical abuse against Crystal Sheffield, mother of Haleigh, as well as Haleigh, herself, at the hands of Ronald Cummings, Haleigh's father. A photo of Haleigh is shown, where she appears to have scratches and bruises on her face. Haleigh's school states that she received the injuries as a result of a fall on the sidewalk at school. Haleigh's mother, Crystal and her family have a different theory. Also, accusations of drug use and a darker side to Ronald Cummings and his family are made.

Even though Ronald Cummings has custody of the children allegedly due to Crystal's drug use, it is Crystal's family that is throwing accusations at Ronald's drug abuse; selling and distributing drugs, and even allegations of being a drug informant. A very shady life for two small children to live in. With that said, someone in the system found it, at the time, the best interest of the children were to be with Ronald Cummings.

These are allegations and have not been proven. Ronald Cummings does have prior drug charges against him, as well as Crystal Sheffield. There is also something to be said for Ronald's choice in dating and living with a seventeen year old girl and having her act as caretaker of his minor children in his absence, while she is a minor herself.

Who is lying, who is telling the truth? Only they themselves know for now.

Although Haleigh does have Turner Syndrome, her school has stated, according to Geraldo, that Haleigh has missed 22 unexcused days of school. Out of 150 days there are 22 unexcused; 9 excused and 6 tardies.

If the school knows of her illness, and she is under a doctor's care, these absences should be excused, if they are related to the illness and the parent is providing correct physician documentation.

I am still concerned why there is not more being said regarding Haleigh's Turner Syndrome during the parent's pleas for her return. Haleigh needs medication each day. Are these parents not concerned with this, or did the abductor just happen to take the medication along with Haleigh and know the medication schedule?

Look for posts in the upcoming days concerning this case, as well as the Caylee Anthony case.

I want to personally thank each and every email (and the comments)of well wishes I have received during my absence related to my chemo. Thank you, Stacia, for holding the blog down. You did a great job, sister. Love to you.

Thank you readers, for your continued support. I will be back up to full posting in a few days....(and I have some rants in the works, as well, Amanda..heh)

Haleigh Cummings Search: Grandmother and Girl Friend Speak To Matt Lauer Friday On Today Show 2.20.09

On the Today Show Friday morning, Matt Lauer spoke to Ronald Cummings mother, and Haleigh's grandmother, Teresa Neves, along with Ronald's seventeen year old girlfriend, Misty Croslin. (see video below)

When Matt asked Misty if her cousin, Joe, who is "missing" from Tennessee, may have taken Haleigh, Misty replied, "I have no idea. I really don't know. I really don't know if he did or not." Matt responded "That's an interesting way to answer the question." Adding, "I think that a lot of people might say, 'No I'm positive that person had nothing to do with Haleigh'."
Misty described her cousin Joe as "being in trouble a lot"; "always in trouble"; and apparently had a lot of dealings with law enforcement. However, Misty did not elaborate on the charges. Misty added, "I haven't spoken to him (Joe) since he's left (sic)". It is being reported that this "cousin" had been in Satsuma with the family, but has since left the area. It is believed that this is the same cousin that it is reported, but denied by Ronald Cummings, that there was a fight over a handgun the day before Haleigh went missing.

There has also been a "Haleigh sighting" in Tennessee, near the Knoxville area.

There have been over 1300 tips since Haleigh disappeared. Misty continues to stick with her story that she was at home the entire night. Misty also states in the interview that she "got up, noticed that Haleigh was missing and got on the phone with the cops". We know that there was a time lapse from whenever Misty realized Haleigh went missing until 911 was called. 911 was not called until 3:27 am, shortly after Ronald Cummings, Haleigh's father, returned home from his employment, where he worked the night shift.

The family is now living in makeshift "tents" because their home is still considered a crime scene and has not been cleared and released back to the family.

editor's note: If a family member has taken little Haleigh, are they not aware of her illness of Turner Syndrome? Children with Turner Syndrome have to take daily medication. I have not heard a lot of this mentioned in the "pleas" for Haleigh's return. Would you not put that out there, if your child, that she needs medication, and without it can become seriously ill? Even with her medication, Haleigh's immune system is low, without her medication, it would become dangerously compromised.

Casey Anthony Documents Update: "Annie Downing "Speaks"..

Annie Downing

From the Casey Anthony Document Release 2.18.09: Annie Downing Statements

10:05am- excerpt from Annie Downing statement:
During Caylee’s 2nd birthday, Casey Anthony told Downing “Oh my God, this is supposed to be Caylee’s Day. I’m her mom. She’s not her mom,” in reference to Cindy Anthony helping Caylee open presents.
Downing also told investigators that she received a phone call from Lee Anthony in October after information had been made public about Casey telling another friend she could get some Xanax from her friend named Annie.
10:40am- Excerpt from Annie Downing statement After Casey Anthony was released from jail once last year, Annie Downing visited Anthony several times at her home and spent the night once. Anthony told Downing, “when this is all said and done, I have so much to tell you,” Downing told investigators.
While Downing was visiting the Anthony home, Casey Anthony found Cindy Anthony on the computer using Casey’s email address and signing emails with Casey’s name. They argued about it, but Cindy Anthony told her daughter that “if this can find us Caylee, then you know I’m going to do whatever I can.” Anthony also eluded to the fact that her ex-fiancee Jesse Grund had a key to her car and “may have done something to it after it was abandoned,” the report said.
The two stopped being close friends around August 2007 because Downing found out that Anthony was a liar, the report said
During Caylee’s 2nd birthday, Casey Anthony told Downing “Oh my God, this is supposed to be Caylee’s Day. I’m her mom. She’s not her mom,” in reference to Cindy Anthony helping Caylee open presents.
Michelle Murphy, former roommate of Lee Anthony interview excerpt- In February 2007, Casey Anthony allegedly had a miscarriage from a man named Brandon Snow. None of her friends, including Annie Downing or Murphy, believed this was true.
On two different occasions, Lee and George Anthony told Murphy that Cindy and George Anthony were considering getting custody of Caylee, the report said.
In March 2007, shortly after the alleged miscarriage, Anthony called Murphy and told her she was feeling “crazy” and was considering getting “herself committed,” the report said. Anthony had “imagined this life with Brandon [Snow] and that she was supposed to have this baby in October,” according to the report. In both Michelle Murphy and Annie Downing interviews, they mentioned they did not believe Casey had a miscarriage.

Haleigh Cummings: Wednesday's News Conference Update 2.19.09

Haleigh Cummings Update: Ron and Misty Taken Back In For Questioning; Reward Raised

Wednesday afternoon, sources inside Putnam County indicate that Ronald Cummings, father of Haleigh Cummings, 5, missing since February 10, 2009 and Haleigh’s Mother, Crystal Sheffield have been escorted separately to the Putnam County Sheriff’s Office. Mr. Cummings was transported by the lead detective in the case and Ms. Sheffield was alerted when deputies phoned her Mother, Marie Griffiths and asked her to bring her to the Police Department.
Attempts to locate the family of 17 year old Misty Croslin, were not successful. Police announced yesterday Misty Croslin and her family were going to be the focus of today’s work in the investigation. It is unclear if a suspect had been located, the child had been found, or whether Ms. Croslin’s account of the evening the child was abducted has pointed the investigation into a different direction.

It is also being reported that a car has been seized. No further details were given. Also, a former tenant says that the trailer was very noisy and that in his opinion, "It would have been hard to have taken a child from the home without anyone knowing."

An anonymous donor has contributed $10,000 to the reward, making it now a total of $16,000.00 for the return of Haleigh Cummings.

Casey Anthony Documents: Continued Updates on Released Documents

Included in this new evidence is a serial number found on a shirt taken from the Anthony home. It matches a number taken from a shirt collar found with the body. Investigators also said a pull up diaper found with the remains is also consistent with those taken from the Anthony home.

Also found in the Anthony's garage was a canvas laundry bag of the same make in which the remains were disposed.

When Casey Anthony was informed of the remains being discovered, but before they were officially identified as Caylee, the documents indicate Casey "hyperventilated" and was given medication.

Casey Anthony Documents: Duct Tape Matches Duct Tape Found On Gas Cans In Anthony Home

The State Attorney's Office released about 500 pages and photographs of legal and investigative documents in the case against Casey Anthony Wednesday morning.

The big news: investigators say the duct tape discovered on Caylee Anthony's skull at the crime scene matches duct tape stuck on a gas can at the Anthony’s' house.

Photos released show strips of silver-colored duct tape and several plastic bags scattered at the site where Caylee's remains were found. Right now reporters are digging through the information. In the hundreds of pages of discovery, photographs of the crime scene and more interviews. At least one interview with Casey Anthony's friends say she had an emotional breakdown and "wanted to be committed"

Orange County detectives reports says that the small skull was near a black plastic bag, the skull didn't have any flesh left on it, but "quite a bit of hair" was still present.

Detective Yuri Melich says "I immediately noticed that there appeared to be a piece of silver duct tape across the mouth area of the skull, then goes on to say, "The tape appeared to have been purposely placed there."

The duct tape found on the gas can was reported here on this blog.

Haleigh Cummings: Girlfriend May Not Have Been At Home; LE Has "Pink Shirt"; Sexual Predator Missing From Area

Dad to Girlfriend on 911 Call: "How the Fu*k You let My Daughter Get Stole Bitch!"

Law Enforcement Alleges To Have "Pink Shirt" In Possession

Chad Eugene Reynolds, Sexual Predator, Missing From Area

Since an Amber Alert was issued for 5-year-old Haleigh Cummings one week ago, more than 1,100 tips have poured into a Crimestoppers hot line; and until Tuesday afternoon investigators have not released specific information about the leads they've received.
However, on Tuesday, new information was released that Haleigh's father's girlfriend, 17-year-old Misty Croslin, may not have been at home the night Haleigh disappeared.
Investigators in Putnam County said they are looking into the Croslin tip as a possibility.
Haleigh was reported missing just after 3 a.m. last Tuesday when Croslin told authorities she woke up and found the child missing. Croslin did not immediately call 911, she waited until Haleigh's father, Ronald arrived home from work, at approximately 3:25 AM to make the call. The 911 call came in at 3:27AM. HEAR UNCUT 911 CALL BELOW


Since the investigation began, Croslin has told detectives that she put Haleigh and the girl's younger brother to bed at about 8 p.m., and that at 10 p.m. both children were still in bed.
Many inconsistencies in Misty Croslin's statements have led local police to continue to investigate Croslin.

Late this afternoon, investigators say that Misty Croslin may not have been home at all that evening. Investigators also say they have in their possession the pink shirt that Haleigh is reported to have been last seen wearing, and the shirt that is listed in the Amber Alert. It is not known at this time how LE obtained the pink shirt. In an interview with Nancy Grace, Ronald Cummings mother, Teresa Neves, says she believes that Haleigh was wearing the pink shirt and also that Misty was at home at the time of the disappearance. She also said she knew of family members "that checked in on them", and "dropped off clothing for the kids." Ms. Neves claims she believes that someone was "watching her son and his family". Ronald Cummings, along with the two children and his girlfriend, Misty Croslin have only lived in the home for three weeks. Misty claims on the 911 calls that she is the "mother" of Haleigh and describes herself as Ronald Cummings' "wife". Ms. Neves claims that there is no drug history "that she knows of" regarding Misty. She also says that Ronald has not been working the night shift that long, perhaps four or five weeks. Ms. Neves states that Ronald and Misty have only been dating for five months.

Sex Offender Missing From Near Search Area

Chad Eugene Reynolds

Chad Eugene Reynolds is a sexual predator from Marion County, FL, south of Putnam County. Reynolds was supposedly missing February 3, 2009, when he failed to check in with his probation officer. According to indictments, Reynolds allegedly attempted to sexually assault an 11 year old girl by cutting her shorts and panties. Also in the indictment, Reynolds allegedly broke into the victims' double wide trailer armed with a knife. He has not been able to be located by law enforcement and there is a warrant out for his arrest for violation of probation. He is not considered a suspect, but is wanted for questioning.

Croslin said when she awoke at about 3 a.m. to use the bathroom she noticed Haleigh was missing.
"I didn't make it to the bathroom. I seen the kitchen light on and I walked in the kitchen and the back door is wide open." "I go in the room and she's gone. And that's all I know. When I went to bed she was there and then when I got up and she was gone." Croslin has also said that "she got up to get a drink", instead of the bathroom scenario as well.
Croslin has been interviewed by detectives and volunteered to take a lie-detector test -- which she said she passed -- but had not spoken publicly until midday Thursday.
"I didn't hear anything at all. If I'd heard something, I would have got up and I wouldn't have let them take her," Croslin said.
Croslin said Haleigh and her 3-year-old brother "look at me like their mom."
"I love her like she's my own," she said. "I just want her to come home."
Croslin said she doesn't blame herself, but she's emotionally devastated and just want to know that Haleigh is safe.
"I wished they'd took me instead of her, because I could have fought," Croslin said. "She's only 5; she can't really do anything. What do they want with a little 5-year-old?"


Little Haleigh also has Turner Syndrome and needs medication for her immune system. Please see this previous post for more information.
