Write Into Evidence calling for federal investigation of State’s Attorney Investigator Chris Middleton and DCF social worker Bonnie Warner
Hank and Lisa Croslin, the parents of Misty Croslin, are requesting state and federal authorities launch an immediate investigation into the facts and circumstances surrounding the child rape pornography taken of the missing child HaLeigh Cummings.
The Croslin’s are reaching out to the media because their daughter, Misty Croslin, has a court date scheduled for June 30 in Palatka, and the new evidence appears to exonerate their daughter, who was convicted of murdering HaLeigh in the public eye.
“They did all this crap to her because they thought she had something to do with HaLeigh,” Hank Croslin said.
Misty Croslin was only 18 years-old, and had no criminal record, when she was sentenced to 25 years in prison after she became tangled up in a drug sting that targeted her.
“That girl is not in prison because of drugs – she’s in prison because of HaLeigh,” said Harriet Sweat, a Croslin family friend that operates a Christian ministry in the Palatka area.
“If they got pictures of HaLeigh, come on now, how much more proof do you need,” Hank Croslin said.
Sweat said the Croslin family needs their daughter Misty at home where she can help her mother, Lisa Croslin, who is in line for a liver transplant.
Hank Croslin said his daughter has run into continuous road blocks as she has attempted to file appeals.
“She’s trying to take it back to court and get a reduced sentence. I really think the State’s Attorney had something to do with it – blocking them – and it’s made her miss her deadlines,” Hank Croslin said.
Hank Croslin contacted Write Into Action yesterday after learning about the child rape porn evidence recently submitted by investigative journalist Timothy Charles Holmseth (this reporter) to the FBI, FDLE, East Grand Forks Police Department, Polk County Sheriff’s Office, and Federal Judge Donovan W. Frank (HOLMSETH V. CITY OF EAST GRAND FORKS ET AL – DISTRICT OF MINNESOTA).
Hank Croslin’s suspicion the State’s Attorney’s office may be meddling with Misty Croslin’s case is significant, because an investigator for the State’s Attorney’s office, Chris Middleton, came up during a recorded conversation between William (Cobra) Staubs and Florida DCF social worker Bonnie Warner, where a disc containing the child pornography of HaLeigh Cummings was discussed.
(STAUBS) I done seen the State’s Attorney (Chris Middleton) guy over there – somebody got called on the red carpet – he was madder than cooder fucking brown…
Staubs then discusses a secret underground apparatus within the legal community that is used to abduct children and cover it up.
(STAUBS) Well, what they doing is they know they was fucking setting this shit up, and now by God the State Attorney got throwed under the bus because apparently he had a meeting with REDACTED and they was talking about me, and my attorney finding out all kinds of shit – and then all of a sudden they got you ready to be thrown under the bus because they said oh no we met – we had –I forgot who they told me met you – gave you the thing (CD containing naked photos)– Bonnie Warner fully aware – did you get the thing I sent you last night? Call Bonnie Warner and Bonnie Warner…
(WARNER) Yeah, uh huh …
(STAUBS) [whispering] Secret shit and only I could tell – and nobody could tell because they asked me not to.
CHILD RAPE PORNOGRAPHY EVIDENCE
Evidence now in the hands of law enforcement contains statements by Donald Knop, a former employee of a South Florida law firm that said he was instructed to give a disc containing naked photographs of HaLeigh Cummings to a Florida DCF worker named Bonnie Warner, during an exchange that took place in a gas station parking lot.
The exchange of the disc took place long after February 10, 2009 – the date HaLeigh was reported missing from her Satsuma home.
(HOLMSETH) Does it have anything to do with the photos of HaLeigh’s vagina that you have?
(KNOP) I don’t know. I don’t know that REDACTED knows I have that. But I’ve just, through working in corporate America, I’ve learned, I keep copies of everything that I’m asked to copy…
(HOLMSETH) I wonder if it has something to do with those photographs. What was the chain of possession on them? Who did you get them from? Of HaLeigh?
(KNOP) It was either REDACTED or Marie (Griffis). I think it was literally we were all in the room together – Jerri Greene, me, maybe Jeremiah (Regan) and, it was either Marie, or Crystal, they had to get them from somewhere. They got the pictures – they handed them to REDACTED – REDACTED looked at them – REDACTED handed them to me and REDACTED said get these on a disc for Peggy (Cone), eh, shit, Bonnie Warner.
(HOLMSETH) Did a copy get to Bonnie Warner?
(KNOP) I delivered it to Bonnie in a parking lot of a gas station.
(HOLMSETH) I remember you saying that. And the photos actually show HaLeigh’s vagina?
(KNOP) Yeah. It showed her in her various, eh, various poses of, of eh, undress.
(HOLMSETH) What were they intended to reveal? I mean was it intended to reveal sexual abuse?
(KNOP) I think that, well, if I remember correctly, when they asked, they thought it did, and they wanted to have documentable proof.
According to Warner, in a statement captured on tape during a telephone conference call between Staubs, Warner, and Holmseth, the photographs were not supposed to be shown to Warner’s supervisor at DCF.
(WARNER) It’s on a CD but those were the pictures they couldn’t send to my supervisor…
The photos were kept secret and never turned over to law enforcement or DCF officials.
Staubs also advised Warner that the disc contained pictures that had been Photoshopped to create the false appearance HaLeigh had posed lovingly with her mother, Crystal Sheffield.
(STAUBS) They photoshopped some of that shit with Crystal holding HaLeigh. Yeah, so it would make her look like she was mother of the fucking year. They trying to use the system – you know when people try to do that kind of stuff – I hope you got a supervisor that will sue the shit or get a warrant after their ass or whatever – they tried any bullshit – I swear to God Bonnie.
(WARNER) Yeah – it was late in the game and they had a bunch – I said well whatever you have just get it to me.
The photographs surfaced well over a month after HaLeigh Cummings was reported missing, indicating HaLeigh was alive after February 10, 2009.
The true facts and circumstances surrounding the porn shoot and apparent sexual assault of HaLeigh are extremely disturbing.
On March 11, 2009, Art Harris, a tabloid blogger that frequently appeared on the Nancy Grace Show, had been being paid $4,700 by Staubs to publish press releases for Crystal Sheffield’s legal team and then push the narrative on Nancy Grace.
Sworn affidavits filed with the Florida Bar Association show Art Harris was in fact working as a “media consultant” for Sheffield’s media team.
On March 11, 2009, Harris wrote: “In what could set a legal precedent for missing children, The Bald Truth has learned exclusively that the mother of five year old Haleigh Cummings aims to fight for legal custody of a daughter abducted a month ago from her father’s home while he was at work and his 17 year old girlfriend slept nearby.”
There was a plan to “set a legal precedent for missing children”.
Evidence now in the hands of law enforcement suggests HaLeigh Cummings may have been strategically raped, and then photos of her abused vagina were taken, and to be used in support of a change of custody action against the child’s father, Ronald Cummings, because the claim was the sexual assault took place while HaLeigh was under his care; or the result of his parental negligence.
In fact, the controlled setting scenario is not only a theory, but was told to Holmseth by Wayanne Kruger, Sheffield’s victim’s advocate.
In Holmseth’s e-book “In Re: HaLeigh Cummings (the unspeakable spoken)” it says:
Kruger told me William Staubs and Johnny Sheffield (HaLeigh’s maternal grandfather) were present at the trailer of Ronald Cummings. She said an argument was taking place between Johnny Sheffield and Ronald Cummings. She said HaLeigh was present. She said Johnny Sheffield wanted to take HaLeigh and keep custody of her.
Kruger said Johnny Sheffield loudly proclaimed to Staubs, ‘He’s letting people fuck my granddaughter!
Kruger told me that a photo session was conducted at the trailer of Ronald Cummings and pictures of HaLeigh Cummings were taken while she had no clothes on. Kruger said the event was arranged through HaLeigh’s paternal grandmother, Teresa Neves. I got the impression that Neves was being paid money for the naked pictures (child porn).
Kruger said Misty Croslin was present at the child porn shoot to help keep HaLeigh calm.
Kruger said the photo shoot was also attended by John and Jeremiah Regan. It was secretly recorded to obtain blackmail evidence against Teresa Neves and Ronald Cummings for their sexual exploitation of HaLeigh. Kruger said John Regan dresses up like a pastor and claims to be an undercover agent of the FBI – an “undercover pervert” that goes undercover as a pedophile to catch other pedophiles.
Staubs told Warner that solving this case could solve multiple other missing child cases.
Timothy Charles Holmseth will be releasing more information regarding the child sex trafficking underground network in Florida.
