Biofuel investment seized during Scott Rothstein RICO prosecution links Casey Anthony murder indictment to HaLeigh Cummings disappearance
LEGAL NOTE: *** Signifies certain name(s) withheld pending legal actions
by Timothy Charles Holmseth
On July 5, 2011 Casey Anthony was found not-guilty of first degree murder. Chief Judge Belvin Perry later told Today he experienced feelings of “surprise “shock” and “disbelief” at reading the verdict.
Interviews of jurors later revealed they could not reach a first degree murder verdict based upon the circumstantial evidence put before them. Evidence is now emerging that demonstrates they were correct in their instincts.
The truth has been hidden in plain sight and links three major criminal investigations in the state of Florida – Casey Anthony – Scott Rothstein – HaLeigh Cummings.
On February 10, 2009 a little girl named HaLeigh Cummings vanished from Satsuma, Florida – 75 miles north of Orlando. She vanished the same day as a nationally televised memorial for slain toddler Caylee Anthony.
Coincidences were common.
The exact same day Casey Anthony was indicted for first degree murder, a biofuel company was created by a Fort Lauderdale attorney named Richard P. Greene; an investment of Scott W. Rothstein.
The biofuel company was called Advanced Biofuel Technologies Inc. (ABT) and was used to finance operatives on the ground in Northern Florida and disrupt the efforts of law enforcement in the HaLeigh Cummings kidnapping.
In March of 2009, a boisterous bounty hunter that called himself ‘Cobra’ obnoxiously interjected himself into the search for HaLeigh Cummings. He told news reporters he had been sent into the case by a “man of God” named Rev. Richard Grund, Windermere, Florida. Staubs, a licensed private investigator, said Rev. Grund was his “client”.
And yet another coincidence.
Rev. Grund was on the Prosecutions list as a potential witness in the Casey Anthony murder trial. His son, Jesse Grund, was once engaged to be married to Casey Anthony.
Rev. Grund confirmed that he sent Staubs to Northern Florida. What was never clear, until perhaps now, is just exactly why Rev. Grund felt he needed to retain a private investigator to become involved in a kidnapping that did not concern him whatsoever.
Or did it?
Did State prosecutors in the Anthony case ever ask Rev. Grund why he and ‘Cobra the Bounty Hunter’ suddenly got into the missing child business – right at the height of the Casey Anthony case?
Why does it matter?
Staubs, Rev. Grund, and a group of others that were working for Crystal Sheffield, HaLeigh’s mother, were being financed by a man named John Burgn, Plantation, Florida.
Why does it matter?
John Burgun was the primary officer/director on the Articles of Incorporation for the biofuel company Rothstein, Greene, and one other ***person set up the day Casey Anthony was indicted.
On October 14, 2008, the same day Casey Anthony was indicted by a Grand Jury for first degree murder; a shady disbarred Fort Lauderdale lawyer named Richard P. Greene created and registered a biofuel company called Alternative Biofuel Technologies Inc. (ABT).
The company was later seized by the feds during the RICO prosecution of Scott W. Rothstein – yes indeed – ABT was an investment of Rothstein.
John Burgun became the primary officer of ABT on January 29, 2009. Only a few days later, on February 10, 2009 HaLeigh Cummings vanished.
Why does it matter?
As part of the transaction that made John Burgun the primary officer of ABT, he and his wife, Maria Burgun, borrowed a very significant amount of money to a person they ***knew. Several more loans followed. However, nothing went well, and when it came time to pay the loan back as agreed the Burgun’s were forced to file a civil lawsuit.
But as you will see – this was no ordinary loan.
In 2012, Maria Burgun met with the FBI to discuss information she said she had about the kidnapping of HaLeigh Cummings. Burgun provided FBI agents the name(s) of those she believes are responsible for HaLeigh’s disappearance.
Maria Burgun told the FBI she believed the money she borrowed to a ***person was used to fund the HaLeigh Cummings kidnapping. She said the large sum of money was supposed to finance a biofuel company called ABT; but the money was spent on the kidnapping instead. The Burgun’s say their money was used to pay for gas, food, lodging, rent, electricity, junk food, car rentals, cell phone bills, medicine, booze, and cigarettes.
Maria Burgun’s statements to the FBI place ‘Burgun’ money in the hands of a group that interjected itself into the act of ‘investigating’ the kidnapping of HaLeigh Cummings.
However – Major Gary Bowling at the Putnam County Sheriff’s Office (PCSO) expressed frustration with the group that was meddling in the case and possibly planting evidence.
The Burgun’s say that when they borrowed the money to the ***person, they had no idea about the HaLeigh Cummings matter and did not figure that out until later.
Many researchers are confused regarding this strange loan. Although it was in fact borrowed to a ***person with a written contract to secure it; it appears John Burgun received something in return; he received the title of primary officer/director of ABT. It is also odd that Burgun could dictate what the loan was to be used for; a fact that makes it seem more like an investment.
Mainstream media covering the case at the time HaLeigh Cummings vanished interviewed many of the major participants. William Staubs, (Cobra the Bounty Hunter) told reporters he was working for Rev. Grund and was going to locate HaLeigh within a specific number of days. He was seen running around day and night with camera men, meddling, and was eventually arrested for a serious felony by the PCSO.
When a reporter with First Coast News asked Staubs how he was paying his bills he said he was being financed by a drug dealer. When asked to explain, Staubs said that ‘drug dealers’ wanted to make sure everybody knew they don’t kidnap kids.
Rev. Grund retained a pro-bono private investigator to travel to Satsuma, Florida to defend the good reputation of drug dealers everywhere.
At this point, Staubs clearly has no good reason to be involved, and could not even give a good explanation about how he was paying his bills.
During recorded interviews, Staubs told Timothy Charles Holmseth, investigative journalist/author (this writer), that a man named “John Burgun” was paying for everything.
Staubs also told Holmseth the entire case would eventually lead to a ‘biofuel company” and the “biggest Billy-bad-ass attorney” in Florida – a lawyer he said was named “Rothstein”.
Holmseth later confirmed the involvement of Rothstein when he received an email from an attorney named Pedro E. Dijols, Rothstein, Rosenfeldt, and Adler. Dijols acknowledged he was representing a ***person involved in the case.
Just a cursory look at the Articles of Incorporation for ABT is very compelling.
On October 14, 2008 ABT was created and registered to Richard P. Greene, a disbarred and disgraced lawyer with a terrible reputation that includes pleading guilty to securities exchange fraud.
There was also one ***officer/director listed on the Articles of Incorporation at that time.
The fact that the biofuel company was created and supported by two corrupt Fort Lauderdale attorneys (Greene and Rothstein) on the same day Casey Anthony was indicted for murder cannot be ignored.
An interesting change was then made in the company. On January 29, 2009 the primary ***officer/director of ABT was removed, and replaced with John Burgun.
During this time-window, the Burgun’s borrowed out a very large amount of cash in a strange loan that was secured by a written contract and ‘filming’ of the money. The Burgun’s do not own or operate a lending institution so this was a private matter.
Exactly what information and calculations the Burgun’s used during their Cost-Benefit-Analysis regarding the large loan is not known. Because they later sued for amounts in the hundreds of thousands of dollars – this was definitely a personal financial risk for the Burguns.
Apparently it was acceptable.
Only a few days after John Burgun became the primary officer of ABT – HaLeigh Cummings disappeared.
Ignoring the fact that the two little girls had names that rhymed (Caylee and HaLeigh) – there were many dynamics that made this kidnapping suspicious. For instance, HaLeigh Cummings disappeared the exact same day as a nationally televised memorial that was held for Caylee Anthony.
Shortly after HaLeigh vanished, Burgun’s money began moving around in the hands of individuals that were causing major headaches for the Sheriff’s Office in Putnam County.
The group being paid with Burgun’s money was on the ground in Northern Florida; frustrating law enforcements efforts, planting evidence, tampering with witnesses, and creating ‘suspects’ that would then be trotted out in the media.
There are too many links to ignore.
Staubs regularly appeared as guest on a weekly Web program to discuss the HaLeigh Cummings case. He repeatedly told the public that the “similarities” between the Cummings case and the Anthony case were amazing. He often suggested that Misty Croslin was the new Casey Anthony.
Remember – Staubs is working for Rev. Grund when he is saying all these things.
Even before the bombshell revelations made by Maria Burgun to the FBI in 2012 – Holmseth already had information that suggested Caylee Anthony may have died at the hands of somebody other than her mother.
The State of Florida never proved what actually occurred to cause the death of Caylee Anthony; that is why Casey Anthony was found not guilty.
The jury’s verdict was wise.
One need only look at the HaLeigh Cummings disappearance, and assess its similarities and connections the Caylee Anthony disappearance (and subsequent homicide) to be enlightened.
Casey Anthony originally told law enforcement that her daughter was kidnapped.
That is the same story Misty Croslin gave about HaLeigh Cummings, folks. Misty Croslin never changed her story despite massive pressure put on her by law enforcemnt.
Casey Anthony behaved the same way when being questioned by law enforcement. It is very possible Casey Anthony was simply sticking to the story she was told to give (just like Croslin).
Evidence shows Caylee may have died during a botched, staged kidnapping that was intended to be what is known as a ‘rescue mission’.
The catalyst character is Rev. Grund.
The evidence cannot be ignored.
On February 10, 2009 a small memorial was also held at J. Blanchard Park in Orlando for individuals that could not attend the televised memorial for Caylee Anthony. The smaller memorial was arranged by Rev. Grund (online pastor and real life demon warrior), William Staubs (Cobra the Bounty Hunter), and Wayanne Kruger (sex-victim’s advocate).
Wayanne Kruger is a well-known child sex victim’s advocate and author. She was once featured on the ABC television news magazine 20/20, as well as by People. In Kruger’s book about child sex predators, she discusses a rescue mission where she helped hide a child on an Indian reservation.
Kruger is well known for performing illegal changes of custody through planned abductions to protect child sex abuse victims.
Emails obtained by Holmseth show Staubs, Kruger, and Rev. Grund were coordinating with each other and in extensive communications. In one email, Grund actually asks Kruger where she is going to “hide” them.
It is here you might began to ponder the idea that Grund, Kruger, and Staubs were instrumental in the disappearance (and subsequent death) of Caylee Anthony.
Consider the facts.
Rev. Grund’s son, Jesse Grund, had once been engaged to be married to Casey Anthony.
Rev. Grund and Kruger were both known to George and Cindy Anthony and had been placed on a ‘do not enter’ list for the televised memorial.
It is rather interesting HaLeigh Cummings vanished the same day a nationally televised memorial was to air.
While Rev. Grund appeared to be on very bad terms with George and Cindy Anthony, he expressed softer feelings for Casey and Caylee. Grund expressed that he loved Caylee like a grandfather loves his grand daughter. He said that when he knew Casey she was not the demon-possessed girl she is now (he believes Casey’s body is indwelt by a demon god named Baal).
Staubs too, continuously described Casey Anthony as demon possessed. He was so desperate to assign this label to her that he said her ears stuck out like an elf and referenced some ancient demon he claimed she resembled. Staubs launched the same type of character assassination campaign against Misty Croslin; the primary person of interest in the HaLeigh Cummings kidnapping.
Staubs and Grund said that both Caylee and Casey had been molested by George Anthony and his son, Lee Anthony. Grund insisted to Holmseth that Caylee was actually Lee’s child from incest (hence her name Ca-Lee).
So – would Rev. Grund have been compelled to arrange a ‘rescue mission’ that included the assistance and complacency of Casey Anthony?
If that is what happened – Casey Anthony did not committ murder.
Consider the facts and evidence.
Although Kruger was at J. Blanchard Park on February 10, 2009, she quietly exited Florida, and re-emerged in March of 2009 to be the victim’s advocate for HaLeigh Cummings’ mother, Crystal Sheffield.
Rev. Grund told Holmseth that George and Cindy Anthony had a special team that was targeting him and his family. He said they hacked his computer and stole photographs from him. He called the team the “A Team”. He stated on several occasions the Anthony’s were attempting to obtain DNA from his son, Jesse Grund, to be used in a frame-up.
Rev. Grund repeatedly, and proactively, said specific things to Holmseth that made Rev. Grund a ‘suspect’.
Holmseth sensed Rev. Grund seemed paranoid, because Rev. Grund continuously suggested somebody was trying to place Jesse Grund’s hair on Caylee’s body. He said Casey Anthony tried to obtain pubic hair from Jesse Grund’s shower, and attempted to have him “touch” the trunk of her car (that trunk that would later smell of a dead body).
It is Rev. Grund himself that keeps making his son, or possibly, himself, a ‘suspect’. It is Rev. Grund himself that kept talking about Grund DNA being found at any potential crime scene.
During an interview with Staubs and another investigator in the Anthony case, James Hoover, the latter confirmed to Holmseth that Jesse Grund had once been followed by operatives to Atlanta for the purpose of covertly obtaining his DNA.
Rev. Grund was positive somebody was trying to frame his son, and multiple witnesses supported the basics of what he was saying.
But then – Kruger said something that shed an entirely new light on Grund.
During an interview, Kruger suddenly blurted out to Holmseth that she hoped Grund did not kill HaLeigh Cummings in ‘one of his frickin exorcisms’.
That is a very powerful statement.
The statement troubled Holmseth because the National Enquirer had published a story that suggested Caylee Anthony may have died in a religious ritual performed by Grund.
Kruger told Holmseth that Rev. Grund did not believe HaLeigh Cummings is completely human because she has Turner’s syndrome, which affects her reproductive system.
What in the world?
This type of assessment of a child is off the charts. Why was Rev. Grund discussing HaLeigh Cummings in this way? Why was he discussing her at all? Moreover – did he discuss Caylee Anthony the same way? Did he believe these little girls needed a demon to be extracted from them?
Did Caylee Anthony die during a ritual?
Caylee Anthony died in the summer of 2008. If the child had been the subject of a ‘rescue mission’ due to sex abuse by her uncle and grandfather, and subsequently killed (possibly accidentally) during an exorcism or ritual, Kruger would have reason to believe the same thing happened to HaLeigh Cummings after she was ‘rescued’.
Holmseth often felt Kruger was trying to cryptically tell him what happened to Caylee.
Grund told Holmseth he once worshipped Satan but is now a Christian. He told Holmseth he once had a direct encounter with a “fallen Watcher” (i.e. a fallen angel – referred to as the Nephilim in the book of Genesis: Chapter 6).
Rev. Grund is obsessed with religion and the occult. He is an online teacher and has students.
Rev. Grund told Holmseth that Casey Anthony was no longer the “Casey” he once knew. He said her body was now indwelt by a demon god named “Baal” (the ancient demon god Baal demanded the lives of children).
As one digests these realities it is important to remember that Rev. Grund interjected himself into the HaLeigh Cummings kidnapping case, and his operatives received money from John Burgun and a Scott Rothstein investment.
Rev. Grund said the home of George and Cindy Anthony was filled with pure evil. He said that when he visited their home once with his wife, the demons in the house began to make things fall off the shelves.
The cynical suggestion that Rev. Grund was responsible for Caylee’s death was asserted by Cindy Anthony, Attorney Jose Baez, Wayanne Kruger, and the National Enquirer.
Staubs told Holmseth, that while he was searching for the missing child HaLeigh Cummings, he was being followed by a private investigator named Dominic Casey that worked for George and Cindy Anthony. Holmseth asked Staubs why Investigator Casey was following him; a question Staubs avoided many times. After Holmseth persisted, Staubs, clearly irritated, said Investigator Casey was following him because Staubs was working for Rev. Grund.
Thousand upon thousands of dollars, generated by a Scott Rothstein investment, were channeled to a team that traveled to Northern Florida and interjected themselves into the HaLeigh Cummings kidnapping.
Now – to state the obvious.
The team was not a team, per say – it was a human trafficking outfit. Kruger explained the details about houses across the United States that Staubs was involved with. She also named all the people involved in an illegal baby-selling scheme that involved forged documents to move babies through the United States embassy.
If nothing else – the latest revelations show that the American system of justice really does still work. The jury on the Casey Anthony case did not succumb to public pressure or blindly follow the story-line presented by the State of Florida.
Much less the despicable Nancy Grace.
The wisdom and courage of the Casey Anthony jury is to be commended.
1 + 1 = 2.
Casey Anthony + Scott Rothstein = HaLeigh’s Cummings.
