“Misty Croslin, the last person known to see a 5-year-old Florida girl before she was reported missing in February 2009, was sentenced to 25 years in prison Friday on an unrelated drug charge. Circuit Judge Wendy Berger also ordered Croslin to pay $500,000 and to follow her prison time with five years of drug-offender probation.
“In televised interviews, Croslin has said she does not know what happened to Haleigh but believes “the other side of the family” knows where she is.
Police have said Cummings and Crystal Sheffield, the girl’s mother, are not considered suspects. Authorities believe Haleigh is dead and are treating the case as a homicide investigation.”
