Calls for ‘Cobra the Bounty Hunter’ to explain his whereabouts
by Timothy Charles Holmseth
Emerging information regarding the facts and circumstances surrounding the arrest and subsequent conviction of Misty Croslin, are indicating an appeal may soon be filed.
A source close to the case states Croslin has been in communication with a lawyer.
The exact basis for any appeal that maybe filed is not yet known.
Independent fact finding in the HaLeigh Cummings matter, has uncovered fresh information that shows Croslin, and her family, is being shadowed by a group in South Florida.
According to a source, individuals in South Florida, connected to the on-going investigation by the FBI regarding the HaLeigh Cummings kidnapping, have been funneling money to Misty Croslin’s parents; Hank and Lisa Croslin.
Hank and Lisa Croslin both struggle with addiction and its fallout, and often live in survival mode, which leaves them needy and vulnerable.
In return for money – the South Florida individuals receive information from the parents regarding the day-to-day of Misty Croslin, and Hank Croslin Jr. – both prisoners in the Florida correction system on drug trafficking charges.
The identity of those involved in the money transfers is being withheld, but said to be shocking – as is so often the case, the website Radionewz.net is said to be involved.
Police Reports in another state are also reported to exist and reveal the entire path of the money.
“Somebody is worried about what that little girl might tell the police,” the source said. “She is scared someone is going to hurt her family.”
The source opined that Misty Croslin may have witnessed something so horrific her mind “split.”
“She knows what they’re capable of,” the source said.
Wayanne Kruger, the sex victim’s advocate that assisted Crystal Sheffield, discussed Misty Croslin being present during the murder of a man in Ronald Cummings’ trailer – shortly before HaLeigh vanished.
Kruger said both Misty and HaLeigh watched it happen.
Speculation is beginning to swirl around a recent press releases issued by William Staubs – the South Florida bounty hunter that once claimed to be searching for HaLeigh Cummings.
Staubs has begun writing for the x-rated website Radionewz.net as well releasing information on PR Web.
In 2009, Staubs told Jessica Clark at First Coast News he was being funded by a drug dealer in Miami to ‘search’ for HaLeigh.
Staubs recently re-released an interview he did with another reporter in 2009, wherein he talked about a crime-scene re-enactment he wanted to do with little Misty Croslin.
“Basically what I want to do Misty is I want to go through each step as close as you can recall it, and if you’re willing to do that I will close this case. Absolutely close it beyond any doubt,” Staubs said.
Some question how watching Misty Croslin walk around a trailer could have given Staubs the information he needed to close the case “beyond any doubt.”
At one point in the interview, Staubs expresses his frustration with Croslin. “I should have just told her ‘listen bitch’ – you know exactly what you did, you been lying – I just want you to come clean,” Staubs said.
Staubs went on to say he was going to the Putnam County Sheriff’s Office and requesting the young girl be charged with Child Endangerment and Obstruction of Justice. He said she should have a million dollar bail placed on her.
Staubs’ obsession with Misty Croslin was further demonstrated in a police report filed by Lindsey Croslin on April 27, 2009. Lindsey Croslin told the Putnam County Sheriff’s Office that Staubs approached her husband and told him that if Misty would come clean, they could bring HaLeigh back from Georgia.
Ironically – Staubs was arrested for felony false imprisonment.
Many wonder why Staubs was so angry at Misty Croslin, and are calling for the interloping private investigator to explain his actions and whereabouts during the time period HaLeigh Cummings vanished in 2009.
