“Misty Croslin, who was caring for missing Florida girl, Haleigh Cummings on the night she vanished says the girl was kidnapped by Joe Overstreet, a cousin of Misty’s. After hearing Misty’s account of what happened to Haleigh, the little girl’s grandmother has come forward calling Misty a liar.
On Tuesday, Misty’s legal counsel stated that his client heard Haleigh screaming as she was being attacked by Overstreet in February 2009, when he had come to the Cumming’s home to find a machine gun that belonged to Ronald Cummings, Haleigh’s father. Cummings was at work at the time of the incident.
Attorney Robert Fields said Misty hid under the covers with 3-year-old Ronald Cummings Jr., but saw Overstreet place something over Haleigh.”
“Teresa Neves, Haleigh’s paternal grandmother told News 4 Jax Wednesday that she is confused by Misty’s new story. “Why would you hide with a little 5-year-old screaming like that?” Neves asked. “How can the neighbors not hear her? Things just don’t add up.”
This story is not new. Many weeks ago, Misty’s grandmother said that Misty told her in confidence that this is what happened that night.
Haleigh’s grandmother wonders how an eighteen year-old girl can hide her head and ignore the screams of a child being kidnapped, or even molested or raped? Every day, so-called mothers turn their heads to the crime of incest going on under their roof. What’s so unbelievable about a drugged-up teenager ignoring a child being kidnapped or raped?
“She believes Haleigh is still alive and that Misty is lying. “I still believe she’s alive… I don’t believe anything Misty says until somebody can prove it. The thing doesn’t even make sense. How can you be under the covers and also see her in a bag? None of it makes sense,” Neves said.” She added “She’s told so many stories, and to just pick and choose which one you want to believe, I don’t believe it’s right… Whatever it is, it needs to be proven.” Neves also expressed her feeling that Misty should be hanged if her story is actually true “like an old-fashioned hanging in the square kind of thing,” she said.”
