Denada, there were a number of unusual events that took place prior to, or shortly following Haleigh's disappearance that make a few people, or groups of people look suspect to me.
I think that Haleigh may have been taken by:
Mexican drug dealers
Area meth cooks
Daniel Snodgrass
or her Grandfather Johnny Sheffield
As for Misty, I believe she knows what happened to Haleigh. In any forum, thread, or blog that you look at concerning this case, you'll see posters stating that she just needs to tell the truth.
IMO,if there are persons in LE protecting the perpetrator, they aren't going to allow the truth to be told.
Thanks for replying to my question, KG. I know your list of suspects has been discussed over the years. I guess anything is possible. As for me, I will never believe that Ronald is anything but intricately involved in Haleigh's demise. If he didn't do it, he's ultimately respnsible for it. If the cause of Haleigh's death weren't his red wagon to pull, Ron would have been out there with his gun's blazing tracking down the ones who destroyed his possession. You don't take from Ronald Cummings anything that is his and not receive at least a kick in the head.

Also, he's got a criminal family who would also seek vengeance for Haleigh's kidnapping or death. As far as anyone can tell, that family is content with the status quo. Someone has Haleigh and good luck to her. "Hope they are feeding her good!"(A Teresa Neves quote.)

That's why letting sleeping dogs lie is just fine with all of them. Ron is involved or someone near and dear to him is involved. And I don't mean Misty. She may know a lot, may even be a witness, but if she did the deed alone or just with a Croslin, the Sykes tribe would throw her to the wolves. They have done so, but ever so half-heartedly...proceed with caution when taking on a ticking time bomb like Misty! She knows plenty about Ron and his family.

I do agree with you that some important investigative people in this case want nothing more than it should all just go away.It was a lame ass investigation from the start. A lot of false starts, lots of stops, everything held close to the LE vest, signifying no action. IMO.

I'd like to believe that Johnny Sheffield took her. I think that would be the best case scenario. Holmseth sure believes it's true.
I think I might just break down and spend the 20 some bucks on his book.

Denada,

I was wrong about J.Squires being the Ronald's cousin but I did find that RC is named after TN's dad and he currently resides in FLorida.

Isn't he( J. Squires) Unka Donald's son? And Unk Donald lived right around the corner from Annette Sykes?

Anyway the AC man was a cousin of Ronald's. The WS gals researched that a long time ago.

So why hasn't Haleigh been seen with any of the Sheffields? Why wouldn't Crystal be aware of where she is and who took her? I mean, how long does Sheffield have to keep her hidden? And why aren't the Cummings/Sykes gang going to get her?

Even if they had to pool their money and hire some detectives to find out where she's hidden? They give lip service to "Haleigh is alive" (Misty also said this from prison.) But they (and liar, liar pants on fire) Misty never do one damm thing about finding Haleigh.

Personally, I don't believe Haleigh's alive and everyone involved is taking a leaf out of the biggest liar's book...Cindy Anthony and her "Look over there! You'll find Caylee there! Not here in a swamp near our house!"

IMO, the Cummings/Sykes/Neves conspiracy co. know where Haleigh is and they want her to remain at rest. The Croslins were perhaps involved in cleaning up the trailor of drugs and guns, but they don't know where the body is hidden so LE won't listen to them. I mean that part of LE who really wants to solve the case.

Hasn't Holmseth been proved a nutcase time and again?

There is a J. Squires that looks alot like the Ronald. He is currently serving prison time also and does look alot like RC but he's in his 40's. The only child that I can find that Donald and Elise have is a girl. WS also had TN's dad wrong.

Did Crystal know about this child or children that RC had in Brevard County? KP didn't seem to know, she thought the child was Jordan, that's what she said on JV show.
Yeah,Holmseth was creeping on KP. SHe got a restraining order on him and I think he had to spend some time in jail over it. He and Cobra, via Chelsea got that Kohl's picture doctored and was trying to pass it off as Haleigh and that she was in eastern Ky. I think Charlie Lee,Misty boyfriend was or may still be searching those hills for an alive Haleigh. Yeah RIGHt JMO

Just as I didn't believe TN propaganda neither did I believe Kim P. THe mad-max decription Crystal spoke of why heck, those were the same folks she served at Fatboys. RC is a legend in TN,GMS, and his mind only. HIs kin was not and would not bring anymore heat around. RC was the fav. and that's one thing about clan mentality, they really don't like the favorite< PUt up with him but to have his back, no.

If Johnny Sheffield took Haleigh and the Cummings/Sykes/Sheffields know he did and where she is, there would have been no reason for them to lie like a dog and hoax up a kidnapping through Misty. They could have just handed her over to Johnny Sheffield and called it a day. UNLESS kiddie porn is somehow involved, they know it and live with it because they THEMSELVES were involved.

There would almost HAVE TO BE trafficing/child molestation, rape and kiddie porn involved in Haleigh's disappearance and local LE is fully aware of it with some of them participants; most likely several other higher ups as well. How else would slick Ron have been able to get away with all of the crimes he commited BEFORE Haleigh went missing, not to several more mention since then?

Why otherwise would LE have set up a drug sting to get RC, Misty and the others safely off the streets and in prison for a good long while? To keep their mouths shut, that's why. Especially Misty's. She knew too much and Ron was too dangerous to have around, could dope up and flip out, make threats and start talking at anytime.

I believe the local disgusting pedophile King George mentioned knows plenty about it too. I'm surprised he hasn't been found with a bullet between his eyes rather than just protected by bondsmen and the local LE.

I agree Denada, Misty does NOT know where Haleigh is, nor do any other Croslins. She was, and is now, caught in a trap she will never be free from. Her time passed a long time ago to open up to the FBI and tell them the truth about what she knew instead of allowing herself to be conned by the Cummings. I still wouldn't be surprised if she is found dead one day, a victim of a prison "accident".

Nobody but those involved know the truth about what happened to Haleigh. To post one's theory as being "almost had to happen" doesn't make for what did happen.JMO

Well, Obviously Vic.

But, if you are an astute person and have kept up with ALL of the issues and ALL of the sneaky lyin' participants surrounding sweet Haleigh's disappearance and their actions, not to mention how the local LE lied about and mishandled the case and ignored evidence; IT ISN'T TOO HARD TO FIGURE OUT!

But someday they will hang themselves if God doesn't git'em first. I HOPE....!

Eye,

I maynot be the sharpest knife in the drawer cause I haven't figured it out yet. THere has been more rumors than facts, obviously.

We're here and still posting because we all want Haleigh to be found and those responsible to pay for what they did.

I just hope PDM is able to get the ROnald on the witness stand cause one thing he won't be able to say is "I was at werk".

Thank you, Newt. I think you've hit the nail on the head.
When Haleigh disappeared, Marie Griffis told First Coast News that she was adamant about the fact that Haleigh was alive, and had been taken to another state.
Shortly, after her disappearance, former Putnam County Police Officer Johnny Sheffield packed up his family, and moved to Kentucky. Odd behavior for a Grandfather who's little Granddaughter had just gone missing.
There was a sighting at a Good Will store in North Augusta, SC. The child not only looked like Haleigh, her name was Haleigh. She was with an older woman, and a young man and woman. The older woman told the clerk that this Haleigh was her first foster child, the child belonged to a relative, and that the child had a sibling who she may take later. The woman reporting this sighting identified this woman as Tina Griffis Garber.
The Sheffield's staged a fake search on their property in order to try to submit phony evidence that would point to Misty being the perpetrator of this crime.
Misty's receipt of the pictures from Kentucky of the little girl in the Kohl's catalog, were followed by the arrest of Danny Druck of Okolona, KY for kiddie porn.

I think it's fascinating that in Ronald's family the matriarchs do all the speaking for the family and the men hunker about looking menacing and bad-ass but never speak. Ronald seems to be the exception...although one can never quite understand his mumbles. He is one drama queen, that's evident. Maybe as a result of being coddled and smothered by all the women in his family. With ther exception of his mommy who seemed to leave his rearing to others. I guess she's trying to make something up to him by taking charge of the "Haleigh case" and covering for him, and, for a time, presenting Misty to everyone in the press/public as Mommy of the Year. That sainthood didn't last because, later, Teresa said Misty should be strung up in the city square.

Why can't this case be turned over to the cold case files, let someone such as Dayle Hinmann..or someone who would actually dig to the bottom of this messy case, this bunch of Satsuma scums have put forth ..lie after lie. Does Satsuma want to keep this as an open case?? IF so, then why are they not beating the streets for info??! Can't no one punk such as Ronald dirt bag Scummings keep all this covered ...too many dopers willing to talk, i would think..Question is tho...do they want to hear the truth...and sorry but Misty could have cleared this up long ago as i feel IF she didn't harm Haleigh she stood by, watched it happen..so sorry but no pity for Misty on my part..my hearts w/ Haleigh, lil Butterbean. We don't know you sweet Haleigh..but many here love you, will always keep your name out there. Hoping to lay you to rest peacefully one day you little angel.

So agree with you,jrw, about Misty. She holds vital info, if she was't actually a witness to or a cause of Haleigh's death. She's a player, but not one smart enough to not get played...by the criminal Cummings consortium. Misty is still playing with everyone from prison. She still changes stories whenever interviewed. She's a sociopath like her boyfriend, Ronald. Like attracts like.

Misty was no innocent little waif of the streets...she and her family had already worked a scam in Florida on her boyfriend at the time, who went to prison for rape. The locals said, "Funny. They seemed to be a couple!"

Misty is like Typhoid Mary of past history. Carries death or detruction in her wake and shirks all responsibilty for anything.

Eaxactly ! She's damn sure no angel. This gal is far beyond her yrs you can bet on that. My goodness, no fault of her own, but when she was only 3 - 4 yo her momma had her out knocking on doors for pills. She grew up fast, hard. BUT! she still knew right from wrong, she chose to lie, stay w/ that pos, his family. So yes, there's a big WHY LIE & COVER if you're not involved??
The Cumming's are in on this too..but Misty holds the key, and always has as to what really happened, only she's too selfish to tell!! I don't wanna hear that she's scared chit, not meaning from you.. just how many have used that as her excuse. She could have went to FBI from the get go if that had been the case. She's in it up to her eyes. Look at her in one of the first videos w/ TN.



That tells it all to me. Guilt is written all over her, that no count TN.

"That tells it all to me. Guilt is written all over her, that no count TN."
I tend to agree that Misty knows most of the answers in the mystery of Haleigh,if she wasn't perhaps the cause of Haleigh's demise. I've always thought RC went gunning for Misty and he had Haleigh with him and she got in the way of what Ron intended for Misty. And I don't think it all went down at the trailer.

Strange Haleigh-connected news from Oregon

July 18,2012
KVAL Eugene OR

EUGENE, Ore.- Authorities have arrested one man in connection with a string of break-ins near the University of Oregon.

Eugene Police arrested Shawn Franklin Philbrick, 37, on two counts of First Degree Criminal Trespass.

One Hilyard Street resident's home was broken into on Sunday.

The UO student is still shaken up after hearing noises coming from downstairs.

"I peeked into my roommates room, expecting my roommate, and not expecting a stranger," the resident said. "I found the guy sort of hiding in her closet."

The stranger then tossed a question her way that she was not expecting to hear.

"He asked me if I was Haleigh Cummings and I said no," the resident said. "Then he asked me if I knew where she was."

The intruder said his name was Ronald Cummings and that he was searching for his daughter, Haleigh.

Those two names made national headlines in 2009.

Haleigh Cummings is a 5-year-old girl from Florida who disappeared that year.

The real Ronald Cummings is in prison in Florida.

Timothy Charles Holmseth is an investigative reporter and an author in Minnesota who has interviewed several people involved in the missing child case.

Holmseth wrote the book "In Re: Haleigh Cummings" in 2010.

The author remembers that Wayanne Kruger, a friend of the family, said that a group of Dead Heads had Haleigh.

"She said they were trying to get a story into the media about Haleigh being taken to Oregon," Holmseth said.

Since nothing was taken at any of the homes, Holmseth thinks the burglar could be someone who knows the real Haleigh Cummings.

"It sounds like somebody may have thought they were getting close to where she actually was and that he was actually going from house to house to house breaking in," Holmseth said. "Here we are three years later and a man comes out of a closet and says that. That's what's interesting about it."

Eugene Police are not investigating whether there is a connection to the break-ins and the missing child case out of Florida.
