Extortion plot details turned over to FDLE attorney James Martin

by Timothy Charles Holmseth on August 31, 2015 at 10:30 P.M.

An organized criminal judicial extortion operation that blackmails government officials and subverts the legal process has been identified and exposed in Florida.

The implications may be international.

Evidence detailing the elaborate scheme, and how it was apparently used to blackmail the States Attorneys Office in Florida’s First Judicial Circuit, has been turned over to Attorney James Martin at the Florida Department of Law Enforcement (FDLE).

Evidence indicates the extortion scheme was used to blackmail States Attorney Jason English and/or other attorneys in the States Attorneys Office into accepting a ‘Deferred Prosecution’ deal for felony defendant Thomas Norman Olsen, 23, Milton, Florida.

Olsen was booked on February 4, 2015, and charged with three felonies including theft of a firearm. However, his serious situation soon changed into something that he joked about as he mocked the judicial system and vowed to continue his menacing behavior.

Thomas Norman Olson

On March 26, 2015, Olsen boasted in a press release published on that an attorney, that was not legally representing him, had obtained a “special favor” from the prosecutor on his behalf called ‘Deferred Prosecution’.

However, a prior press release made by Olsen on February 22, 2015, tells a much different story about what was going on behind the scenes. It reveals he was deeply involved in an extortion scheme against officials in Santa Rosa County using threats of a lawsuit involving abuse of prisoners by correctional officers.

But – there is unique twist to the published threats of a lawsuit.

The reason the published threats of a lawsuit rises to the level of criminal extortion is because Olsen was threatening a lawsuit against Santa Rosa County on behalf of unknown and/or un-disclosed third parties – not himself.

Olsen himself had no Cause of Action – but was publishing that Santa Rosa County was going to be sued for abuse after his arraignment.

There was no lawsuit.

It was a blackmail scheme that involves a Web underground that specializes in extortion through online threats, intimidation, harrassment, stalking, and worse.

The ability to run the blackmail scheme involves a model for extortion that uses multiple Twitter accounts in conjunction with an anonymous website on an off-shore Web server.

The Twitter and website are the public information delivery system critical to the extortion scheme.


The FIRST step is for the extortionists to publish threats online that would cause great fear to the intended target. The published threats may include true events or completely fabricated lies (in this instance the target was Santa Rosa County). The threats may warn of impending disaster or promised doom.

The SECOND step is to contact the target (this is sometimes done by an attorney) and casually mention what is appearing online; note the unsightliness of it all; and suggest perhaps something could be worked out to make it all go away.

Other times the target is contacted by anonymous emails or direct messages via Twitter. The target is provided links to videos or photos or other media that convey the threat.

The THIRD step is – if the extortionists succeed – is for the extortionists to get what they want. This might be having criminal charges dropped against a dangerous criminal, or an active criminal investigation halted. It might be the illegal removal of records from a public records database, or a website being taken down. It may result in murders going unsolved; evidence vanishing; missing children remaining missing; child pornography crimes not being investigated.


On February 22, 2015, Thomas Norman Olsen, 23, Milton, Florida publically announced on Twitter that a lawsuit was going to be filed against Santa Rosa County for prisoner abuse. He also implied that police in Santa Rosa and Escambia counties would be brought into the fray.

Olsen announced in a series of tweets:

“Yes, this is a scandal. Yes, I plan on taking all this public. And yes, I have hard evidence WITH dozens of witnesses to the brutality”.

“Again, more information on all this will be released in my statement after my arraignment on Thursday”.

“And the Correctional Officers at Santa Rosa County jail apparently have a huge history of misconduct and brutality, beating inmates”.

“Let me tell you, when it comes to Police in Escambia and Santa Rosa Counties, they’re far from ethical. Known by anyone who lives here”.

“I will explain the details of said lawsuit against SRC in the statement I plan on releasing after my arraignment on Thursday”.

Thomas Olsen Break News on Police Scandals

The tweets were then re-published on a website located at

Olsen’s announcement made it clear that Santa Rosa County was going to be sued with hard evidence and dozens of witnesses to support the claims.

However – Olsen never actually stated that HE was/is the victim.

That is because Olsen was/is NOT a victim.

That means Olsen had no legal Cause of Action upon which to file a lawsuit against Santa Rosa County.

Therefore, at the very most, Olsen was professing to KNOW about a lawsuit that was going to be filed against Santa Rosa County.

The aforementioned fact-pattern becomes a key element to proving it was a blackmail scheme, because Olsen claimed he KNEW bout a pending lawsuit.

However – there is NO known record of any such complaints or lawsuit ever being filed.

Therefore – just exactly where Olsen was getting his information is something he would now have to explain to law enforcement.

Olsen was represented by a criminal defense attorney on his felony charges, and that attorney is not known to have filed any lawsuit, or filed any formal complaint on behalf of Olsen regarding abuse or police misconduct of any kind.

Olsen made it clear that somebody had information about prisoner abuse and police misconduct that was scandalous and a lawsuit was forthcoming.

Therein lies clues to the criminal extortion and who is behind it.

Olsen began making announcements using the information delivery system to announce the involvement of another attorney – a civil attorney – known only to legally represent the website

Note: The name of REDACTED is known to the FBI, FDLE, and Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi

Olsen stated in a press release on March 26, 2015:

“This is an update on my case. One that I’m sure everyone will be happy with (except Murt of course).

Had a meeting with my lawyer this morning to get an update on what was going on. The prosecutor HAS accepted the deal put forth by my lawyer and the assistant prosecutor. This is the first time I will be able to go into full detail on what my deal entails. The prosecutor also stated that this WILL be settled before my next court date, which means no more court for me. Keep in mind, REDACTED was HUGE in securing me this deal. Call it a personal favor for her from the State Attorney for my circuit.

The deal is this. Deferred Prosecution. This is kind of like probation but not really. It’s extremely rare in my county that this sort of deal is offered or even considered. Basically if I keep my nose clean (no arrests, piss tests once a month, complete community service, etc…) then at the end of the time frame of the deferred prosecution (in this case it’s 1 year) ALL charges against me will be dismissed and my record will remain clean.

Pity, some thought that I was finally going to be put in jail or have something done to me by the legal system. Well, think again haters. I’m free and will remain free. And I’ll remain on the internet and remain out of jail to make sure I’m here to continue putting fuckers in check”.

Thomas Olsen REDACTED Good News On Case

The involvement of the third attorney in the plea bargain process – the civil attorney – is something that would need to be explained to the FDLE by the Office of States Attorney William Eddins.

And other questions arise.

Has there been abuse of prisoners by correctional officers or police in Florida’s First Circuit that has subjected the States Attorney office to blackmail and extortion?

Has the States Attorneys Office or any other law enforcement in Florida’s First Circuit engaged in misconduct or behavior that has exposed the county to blackmail and extortion at any given time?

How many cases have been affected by this blackmail operation?

Has this blackmail operation been used to suppress law enforcement in active missing child cases across the United States and abroad?

Extortionists claim to represent families of HaLeigh Cummings and Caylee Anthony

Thomas Norman Olsen, Milton, Florida, has been identified as a participant in a satanic cult that produced and published a series of videos threatening the children of investigative journalist Timothy Charles Holmseth.

Olsen is presently facing felony charges for theft of a firearm, and has been reported to States Attorney Jason English at the Office of the State Attorney for his role in the criminal extortion plot.

Thomas Norman Olson

Published documents show Olsen is a member of the satanic underground trafficking ring that created and distributed child pornography of the missing child HaLeigh Ann-Marie Cummings.

SA English has been provided audio evidence that implicates multiple licensed legal professionals in the state of Florida for their role in an underground operation involving naked photos of HaLeigh Cummings and close-ups of her assaulted vagina. The audio evidence has also been turned over to the FBI and FDLE.

The audio is comprised of interviews Timothy Holmseth conducted with members of Crystal Sheffield’s legal team shortly after HaLeigh’s disappearance in 2009. The interviews capture Florida DCF social worker Bonnie Warner discussing a secret disc that she received but couldn’t show to her supervisor. Warner admits the disc was given to her in a parking lot by Donald Knop, an employee of a South Florida law firm. Knop said the disc contained naked photos of HaLeigh Cummings that had been kept in a secret location.

In the You Tube videos, Holmseth is warned that he has until a certain date to remove all of his websites from the internet. The videos specifically target Holmseth’s children, including his small son.


The producer(s) of the Anonymous videos claim to represent the families of HaLeigh Cummings and Caylee Anthony.

Mr. Holmseth is also obsessed with the murders of little girls HaLeigh Cummings and Caylee Anthony, writing about the two children in sexually graphic ways. The family of the two children are disgusted by what he puts on his website. Mr. Holmseth even involved these two in his child rape and child porn fantasies. Anonymous will not stand for this perverted filth to stay on the Web,” the video said.

In one video the person warns that Holmseth’s daughter’s unborn child will be “taken from her as soon as it’s born”.

All of these websites will vanish and no website will be created if you delete your websites. Everything is in your hands. I hope you spare your daughter a lot of grief and misery. I’d hate to see the child taken from her as soon as it is born,” the video said.


by Timothy Charles Holmseth on August 6, 2015 at 8:09 A.M.

Proof that somebody photographed the missing child HaLeigh Cummings naked is now part of the Minnesota District Court file.

Journalism interviews with individuals working with licensed individuals retained by Crystal Sheffield, the mother of the missing child HaLeigh Cummings, have been submitted on a CD disc as evidence to the Minnesota District Court.

The individuals, including a Florida DCF social worker, Bonnie Warner, are heard discussing a DCF case that involved secret naked photos of HaLeigh Cummings that could not be shown to Warner’s supervisor at DCF or law enforcement.

No names are redacted in the court exhibit.


The HaLeigh Cummings case in Florida became intertwined with a Minnesota child custody file in 2009, after the same legal team that was attempting to change the custody status of HaLeigh Cummings through an underground DCF connection, began using the same illegal tactics against a Minnesota investigative journalist that had discovered HaLeigh was alive, being hidden, sexually assaulted, and photographed naked.

The following is an excerpt from a court 57 page filing made by Petitioner Timothy Charles Holmseth to the Minnesota District Court yesterday:

RESPONDENT (Rhonda W. Callahan) and her attorneys at Charlson & Jorgenson Law Office have been conspiring to violate state and federal law since 2009 wherein they have knowingly filed false child abuse and neglect allegations against PETITIONER, in advance of protecting a criminal enterprise.

The aforementioned criminal enterprise kidnapped a child, HaLeigh Ann-Marie Cummings, sexually assaulted her, photographed her naked, and distributed the pornography.

PETITIONER is a witness to the aforementioned federal child pornography and kidnapping crimes committed against HaLeigh Cummings, via journalistic interviews PETITIONER conducted with the criminals involved.

PETITIONER assisted the FBI with evidence in HaLeigh Cummings kidnapping beginning in 2009, and was interviewed by Special Agent A.J. Eilerman, Minneapolis FBI, in 2010. 

PETITIONER continued to obtain multiple forms of evidence after being interviewed by the FBI and continues to acquire new evidence.

RESPONDENT and her attorneys have stayed in step with PETITIONER’S journalism on the HaLeigh Cummings and Caylee Anthony cases, and have continued to assist the criminal enterprise through use of court motions against PETITIONER in the Minnesota Family Court.

Particularly, RESPONDENT falsely alleges safety issues were/are being created for the minor child, REDACTED, by claiming PETITIONER suffers from mental health problems.

The false claims and non-existent safety issues have been, and continue to be, published online, to support the illusion that PETITIONER is a mentally unstable pedophile derelict required to see his child under supervision.

The conspiratorial actions and wide gamut of crimes have been accomplished at various levels through RESPONDENT’S communications with REDACTED, Levi Page, Art Harris, Williams Staubs, and others.

* * * * *


In 2009, PETITIONER began to conduct interviews regarding the HaLeigh Cummings kidnapping in Florida.

In 2009, after PETITIONER began conducting the aforementioned interviews, RESPONDENT, Charlson & Jorgenson, REDACTED, and others entered into a criminal conspiracy to use REDACTED as a Cause of Action to file un-warranted motions against PETIONER in the Minnesota Family Court.

Between 2009 and 2015 RESPONDENT and her attorneys have filed nearly non-stop court motions, CPS reports, and letters of concern, etc., regarding REDACTED, which are invariably directed at the mental health of PETITIONER.

Between 2009 and 2015 PETITIONER passed three psychological evaluation and parental capacity tests.

RESPONDENT’S Motions invariably mention PETITIONER’S journalism and specifically mention the missing child HaLeigh Cummings. RESPONDENT has repeatedly made references in formal court Motions and supporting Affidavits, to PETITIONER’S ‘delusional theories’ on the HaLeigh Cummings kidnapping.

In June, 2015, PETITIONER was able to locate audio interviews from his HaLeigh Cummings / Caylee Anthony case files that revealed REDACTED possessed and distributed child pornography of the missing child HaLeigh Cummings, which featured close-up images of the five year-olds recently sexually assaulted vagina.

PETITIONER turned the evidence into the Minneapolis FBI and Florida Department of Law Enforcement.

The interviews conducted by PETITIONER that incriminate REDACTED and members of the child sex trafficking underground she works with, began in 2009, at the EXACT SAME TIME that RESPONDENT and Charlson & Jorgenson Law Office began coordinating with REDACTED, William Staubs, Art Harris, and others to protect the kidnapping ring.

Sheriff Barb Erdman and Police Chief Michael Hedlund possess evidence of child pornography in missing child case

Polk County Sheriff Barb Erdman

Polk County Sheriff Barb Erdman

Polk County Sheriff Barb Erdman and East Grand Forks Police Chief Michael Hedlund have received extensive and detailed information about child pornography, as well as the alleged sexual assault of the missing child HaLeigh Ann-Marie Cummings.

HaLeigh Cummings was five years-old when she reported missing from her Satsuma, Florida home on February 10, 2009.

The report was made to Erdman and Hedlund today by Timothy Charles Holmseth, investigative journalist, after the Missing and Endangered Persons division of the Florida Department of Law Enforcement contacted him and advised him to make the report. The FDLE sexual predator unit contacted Holmseth after he provided evidence from the Florida Bar Association that supported existing evidence regarding the pornography.

Today was the first time Holmseth officially reported the pornography crime directly to Erdman and Hedlund, because both are defendants in a Deprivation of Rights lawsuit filed by Holmseth against the City of East Grand Forks and several others. The lawsuit alleges Erdman and Hedlund violated Holmseth’s constitutional rights amidst their involvement in a scheme to cover-up crimes Holmseth uncovered as an investigative journalist.

Holmseth reported to Erdman and Hedlund, irrefutable evidence that HaLeigh Cummings was sexually assaulted and photographs were taken of her private parts. Holmseth further reported he was told that HaLeigh had been raped and might have died because she was “hemorrhaging” from the sexual assault.

The evidence of the federal child pornography crimes was acquired while Holmseth was performing journalistic interviews in Polk County, Minnesota. There also exists evidence of a subsequent conspiracy by select police officers and public officials to destroy the evidence on Holmseth’s hard-drive.

The naked photographs of the five year-old child appeared out of nowhere at least one month after HaLeigh Cummings was reported missing. However, the photographs, which were in the possession of licensed legal professionals in Florida, were never given to law enforcement. The naked photographs were copied and distributed through an underground network.

The person(s) that are alleged to have commissioned, handled, distributed, and presently possess the pornographic images, are on file as being in regular contact with officers of the East Grand Forks Police Department and others in Minnesota.

Holmseth obtained the critical information while conducting interviews with key figures in the HaLeigh Cummings kidnapping, and Caylee Anthony murder cases.

Records with the EGFPD show Lt. Detective Rodney Hajicek telephoned Holmseth in June of 2009 and told him he was receiving complaints from several individuals in Florida about Holmseth. The caller(s) wanted Hajicek to contact Holmseth and use his police powers to lean on him so he would stop publishing content about the HaLeigh Cummings kidnapping and photographs.

Holmseth is now directing Erdman, Hedlund, and federal investigators to the police reports filed by Hajicek in 2009, and suggesting they compare the names of the individual(s) that were calling the police on Holmseth, to the names of the individuals involved in commissioning, handling, distributing, and possessing the child pornography.

Holmseth was not able to present the evidence until very recently, because the EGFPD, and Minnesota Pine to Prairie Gang and Drug Task Force, obtained a search and seizure warrant for his computer and hard-drive in December of 2012. When the hard-drive was returned by EGFPD officer Aeisso Schrage in April of 2013, the hard-drive had been disabled; wires had been pulled out; and plastic clips snapped.

“The person(s) that damaged my hard-drive may have been Aeisso Schrage, and/or Rodney Hajicek, and/or Ronald Galstad, and /or PCSO Sgt. Michael Norland, and/or somebody else. Whoever damaged the hard-drive appears to have been attempting to conceal evidence that involved child pornography and child rape,” Holmseth reported today.

In the fall of 2014 Holmseth located back-up files he possessed and began the process of finding evidence he possessed regarding the child rape pornography.

The evidence has also been given to Richard T. Thornton, special agent in charge, Minneapolis FBI, as well as Donovan W. Frank, the judge hearing HOLMSETH V. CITY OF EAST GRAND FORKS ET AL.

Holmseth has requested the Court allow him to amend his original Complaint to add the child pornography evidence.

Holmseth alleges that select police officers and public officials in Minnesota, conspired with the very individuals in Florida that commissioned, handled, and distributed the child rape pornography, to violate his constitutional rights, while simultaneously attempting to destroy the evidence he possessed.

In February of 2015 Holmseth received telephone calls from a Florida telephone number by a man that told him he was going to kill him and his house was being watched. The telephone calls were reported as they happened to the EGFPD in Minnesota and GFPD in North Dakota.

Judge Frank has referred Holmseth to the federal Pro Se project for an attorney.


FDLE ‘black ops’ may ruin presidential aspirations for Rick Scott

by Timothy Charles Holmseth

Florida Governor Rick Scott knows the truth about what happened to the murdered Orlando toddler Caylee Anthony, and the missing child HaLeigh Cummings.

The Governor’s recent termination of FDLE Commissioner Gerald Bailey is an attempt to distance his office from the impending explosive scandal that now looms heavy on the horizon.

But it may be too late.

According to a South Florida insider, Scott’s office has ‘lost complete control’ of the situation and is ‘terrified’ because the hideous way little Caylee Anthony died, and the on-going cover-up of her murder, could ruin his chances for a possible VP spot on a Jeb Bush presidential ticket.

‘It’s hard to tell if Rick Scott plans on being a hero or a zero. If he plans on being a hero, he better do more than fire Bailey. He better resolve these cases. Jeb Bush is not going to want the Grim Reaper on the ballot with him,’ the source said.

Timothy Charles Holmseth has obtained information that the HaLeigh Cummings investigation was/is nothing more than a public relations campaign run by the Florida Department of Law Enforcement (FDLE) and Putnam County Sheriff’s Office (PCSO) to cover for a massive drug and human trafficking operation that involved law enforcement agents and high ranking government officials.

The trafficking, which included small children and child pornography, involved an FDLE operative named William Staubs – also known as ‘Cobra’.

As early as March of 2009, Detective Peggy Cone, lead investigator on the HaLeigh Task Force, admitted the real reason Ronald Cummings, HaLeigh’s father, had not yet been arrested in his daughter’s disappearance, was connected to surveillance video of people coming in and out of a drug location.

The drug location referenced by Cone was First Impressions weight loss clinic in Tallahassee. The surveillance video was of the door traffic at First Impressions, and was secretly captured by Cobra Staubs. The patrons of the clinic were illegally obtaining prescription medication from a front-desk secretary without ever seeing a doctor.

Records obtained by Holmseth show Gov. Scott’s chief inspector general, Melinda Miguel, was among the government employees illegally obtaining drugs at First Impressions. Records show the clinic was the go-to spot for government employees to obtain pills and was frequented by judges, politicians, law enforcement officers, and their spouses.

Staubs told Holmseth that Ronald Cummings had “notebooks” full of names of customers purchasing drugs that could be used for blackmail. Staubs said he personally met with Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi; FDLE Commissioner Gerald Bailey; and boasted telephoning judges at home.

Staubs telephoned Holmseth shortly before he was to meet with Bondi and asked how much information Holmseth had acquired on a South Florida attorney. The attorney was a business partner with now convicted Ponzi schemer Scott Rothstein. Staubs appeared to be gathering information for the Governor’s office.

There are countless examples of Staubs un-fettered access to information.

On several occasions, Staubs telephoned Florida Department of Children and Families (DCF) child protection specialist Bonnie Warner at her home, and the two openly discussed the HaLeigh Cummings case file. Holmseth has recordings of the telephone calls between Staubs and Warner.

Holmseth also has recordings of an official meeting attended by Staubs, Rothstein’s attorney associate, and a young mother that was a friend of Misty Croslin. The attorney is heard threatening to have “Bonnie Warner” take the young women’s child away from her if she doesn’t cooperate. The Rothstein attorney associate was a suspect in the HaLeigh Cummings kidnapping and had been questioned by law enforcement.

According to the South Florida insider, Gov. Scott and Attorney General Bondi are suddenly trying to distance the Governor’s office from the ‘black-ops’ being run by the FDLE.

‘They’re scared to death about what they did to Misty Croslin. Scott and Bondi both know Misty Croslin was set-up and sentenced to 25 years in prison. That was done to make it look like Misty killed HaLeigh. But HaLeigh wasn’t dead. Rick Scott knows that. That’s not presidential,’ the source said.

However – it may be a black-op run in 2009 that becomes the un-doing of Scott’s presidential ambitions.

In 2009 the FDLE arrested Dr. Mark Hash, a physician that worked part-time at First Impressions. Dr. Hash was charged with dispensing prescription medication without medical necessity. The felony charges were subsequently dropped for complete lack of evidence, and Dr. Hash filed a lawsuit against the FDLE for false arrest.

The State of Florida then began to pursue physical custody of Dr. Hash’s teenage son, Alec Thomas Hash, via a ‘black op’.

According to a December 31, 2014 motion filed to the Leon County Court by high profile attorney Steven Andrews, Leon County Judge Karen Gievers has been presiding over an illegal “star chamber” that is violating the constitutional rights of Alec Hash.

The timeline of events show Gievers and the FDLE are working in concert; the tandem acts include an un-constitutional pick-up order issued by Gievers for Alec Hash’s arrest, which the FDLE used to justify classifying Alec Hash as a missing person.

‘Alec Hash may have witnessed something – that’s why they need to get him,’ the source said.

Public records show FDLE attorney James Martin was counsel for the FDLE after Alec Hash had been classified as ‘Missing and Endangered’ despite the fact Alec Hash was not really missing. After the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children contacted the FDLE and instructed the agency to cease publication of the ‘missing person’ poster, the FDLE, under Martin, continued to publish the poster while an operative used Facebook in a desperate effort to lure Alec Hash back into Florida.

In the summer of 2014 Alec Hash retained Andrews, but Gievers struck Attorney Andrews’ notice of appearance, which essentially means Alec Hash can only be represented by Attorney Michael Dolce, who Alec Hash had long since terminated in writing because Dolce was working against his interests.

After Andrews filed an appeal regarding Gievers’ ruling, Dolce filed a motion to Gievers’ court requesting Andrews be found in contempt of court. According to Andrews’ court motion, the “star chamber” is being used to prevent Alec Hash from having a lawyer, which violates his due process rights.

The Florida First District Court of Appeals is presently reviewing, what is essentially, ‘star chamber’ activities, and a decision could come any time.

Mysterious ‘Miami drug dealer’ once implicated in the HaLeigh Cummings disappearance likely a real person – investigation crippled by Tallahassee pill-mill that supplied drugs to government officials

by Timothy Charles Holmseth

In March of 2009, William Staubs, the Broward County bail bondsman and private investigator that interjected himself into the HaLeigh Cummings missing child investigation, told First Coast News his efforts were being funded by a “drug dealer” in “Miami”.

The assertion seemed odd because HaLeigh disappeared from Putnam County, which is located on the other end of the state in Northern Florida.

Emerging information indicates William Staubs’ (a.k.a. ‘Cobra’) strange reference to a Miami-based drug dealer was true. The implications of drug connections associated with the missing child case explain how law enforcement had/has been rendered impotent and unable to arrest those responsible for HaLeigh’s disappearance.

Putnam County Sheriff’s Office (PCSO) reports show law enforcement knew as early as April, 2009, that Staubs and his colleagues were hiding HaLeigh Cummings in Georgia.

The drug trafficking dynamic to the HaLeigh Cummings case became most pronounced in January of 2010, when the child’s father, Ronald Cummings, and his former teen wife, Misty Croslin, along with several others, were busted in a drug sting and subsequently sentenced to long prison terms.

FDLE agent Travis Smith testified that Misty Croslin, an illiterate teenage rape and abuse victim with no criminal record, who was seventeen years-old when HaLeigh vanished, was the “bigger fish” and deserved her 25 year prison sentence.

“[Misty Croslin has been] been moving an enormous amount of prescription pills in our community. Misty Croslin initiated all the drug transactions,” Smith said.

Smith and the FDLE would have known their testimony against Croslin was false.

New evidence regarding a statewide drug trafficking operation shows Smith’s testimony about Croslin betrays the FDLE. Evidence shows it is more likely that Croslin simply knew too much about the Palatka/Satsuma drug community, as well as the truth about who kidnapped HaLeigh Cummings, and needed to be controlled indefinitely.

Staubs’s claims at the time (2009) to be associated with a drug dealer from Miami ultimately tied him to a drug operation spanning the length of the entire state of Florida, because at that time, he was deeply involved with First Impressions weight loss clinic, which was operating in Tallahassee; the clinic was supplying prescription drugs to government officials, judicial officers, and law enforcement agents.

Staubs’s connection to First Impressions afforded him access to a massive amount of knowledge regarding high level government officials, reaching all the way up to the Florida Governor’s office, that were fraudulently acquiring drugs at the Tallahassee pill-mill.

An investigation by Write Into Action shows Staubs staked out First Impressions weight loss clinic and snapped surveillance photographs of government officials coming and going with purchases.

Two of the judicial community employees photographed was Assistant State Attorney John Hutchins, and his wife, Angelique Knox.

ASA Hutchins was prosecuting Jane Watts, the owner of First Impressions, during the exact same time window he was entering the pill-mill (owned by Jane Watts) to obtain the pharmaceuticals.

Documents obtained by Write Into Action reveal individuals from the following agencies frequented First Impressions:

  • Chief Inspector General / Office of the Governor
  • Second Judicial Circuit of Florida
  • United States Attorney’s Office
  • Office of the State’s Attorney
  • Gadsden County Sheriff’s Office
  • Florida Highway Patrol
  • Tallahassee Police Department
  • Dept of Corrections
  • Dept of Agriculture
  • Florida Department of Law Enforcement
  • Florida Department of Health
  • Leon County Sheriff’s Office
  • Capital Police
  • Leon County Commission
  • Florida Department of Revenue
  • Republican Party of Florida
  • Florida House of Representatives
  • Dept of Energy
  • Dept Motor Vehicles

Staubs’ possession of surveillance photographs and personal information of visitors to the weight loss clinic is the type of material that would subject the specific public officials and law enforcement officers to blackmail.

Staubs’s circumstances had placed him in exactly that predicament.

In May of 2009, Staubs was arrested by the PCSO on charges of felony false imprisonment after revoking the bond of a man named Daniel Snodgrass; throwing him violently to the ground while his private camera man filmed him for You Tube.

Before the violent incident on March 20, 2009 with Snodgrass, Staubs met with FDLE agent Travis Smith, Putnam County Sheriff Jeff Hardy, Detective John Merchant, and State’s Attorney investigator Chris Middleton, and asserts he received their blessing.

Background information regarding the aforementioned individuals, particularly Smith, Hardy, and Merchant, now indicates Staubs had simply met with rogue members of the drug trafficking community that were law enforcement officers.

Staubs later said Detective Ken Taylor, PCSO, who was angry that Staubs was messing up his case against Snodgrass, went around the chain of command, side-stepping Captain Dominic Piscitello, and was able to secure felony charges against him (Staubs) by the State’s Attorney’s office.

In October of 2009, Staubs’ long time friend and PI client, Dr. Mark Hash, a physician at First Impressions weight loss clinic, was arrested on felony charges of dispensing pharmaceutical with no medical necessity.

The criminal charges filed against Dr. Hash were brought upon an arrest warrant signed by FDLE agent Matt Sears. The charges against Dr. Hash were subsequently dropped due to lack of evidence.

The evidence actually suggested Dr. Hash was the victim of identity theft, where low level employees at the clinic were acquiring prescription medication using his DEA license without his knowledge and then dispensing it to government officials.

Dr. Hash subsequently filed a lawsuit against the FDLE, and Agent Sears was transferred from the FDLE to the Department of Agriculture.

Evidence shows that although the charges against Dr. Hash had been dropped, the client list and surveillance photographs of government officials still posed a serious threat to everyone that obtained prescription drugs on Dr. Hash’s license by fraud, which included the Florida Governor’s chief inspector general.

Therefore – Dr. Hash posed a very serious threat to every single person and agency on the First Impressions client list.

As was the case with young Misty Croslin – the FDLE and Florida law enforcement quickly began targeting another innocent child to cover for their activities.

Court files and public records show the Tallahassee Police Department, along with members of the legal community, targeted Dr. Hash via his sixteen year-old son, Alec Thomas Hash, in a change of custody scheme, which was run through Leon County Family Court Judge Karen Gievers.

The Hash family was stalked relentlessly.

Photos captured at the front of Dr. Hash’s home show a squad car sitting ominously outside, and video captures former TPD Sgt. Mark Peavey, stalking their residence. Alec Hash says Peavey came to the door and threatened to kill the boy’s dog, adding that the boy’s dad (Dr. Mark Hash) will know what ‘we are talking about’.

Continued terror tactics by the TPD ultimately resulted in a second lawsuit, which was filed against the TPD on behalf of Alec Hash.

The change of custody scheme morphed into an all-out kidnapping plot in May of 2013, after Alec Hash slipped away to Missouri and got married; thus becoming an emancipated adult and not subject to Judge Gievers.

The emancipation gave Alec Hash the legal right to leave Florida, which he promptly did.

He was promptly pursued.

In 2013, the FDLE published a ‘Missing Person’ poster of Alec Thomas Hash, after he fled the state and refused to come back. The FDLE continued to publish the poster even after the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children instructed the FDLE to remove the poster from publication because Alec Hash wasn’t missing.

On the same day the FDLE was told Alec Hash was not missing, somebody claiming to be a teenage girl named “Jackie Cannon” used Facebook to contact Alec Hash and attempted to lure him back into Florida (where a juvenile pick-up order signed by Judge Karen Gievers awaited him).

In March of 2014, Alec Hash, still successfully eluding rogue law enforcement attempting to kidnap him, inexplicably came on the radar of the Miami Beach Police Department (MBPD).

On March 10, 2014, the MBPD ran a Driver and Vehicle Information Database (DAVID) search on Alec Hash.

Alec Hash has no connection to Miami.

David De La Espriella, captain, MBPD, was named on the DAVID search and contacted in advance of this story. No response by De La Espriella has been received.

Evidence, facts, and circumstances shows Misty Janette Croslin’s rights under the 14th Amendment to the United States Constitution have been violated.

The Equal Protection Clause of the 14th amendment of the U.S. Constitution prohibits states from denying any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.

Evidence obtained by Timothy Charles Holmseth, investigative journalist/author, demonstrates the State of Florida, via the Putnam County Sheriff’s Office (PCSO), Florida Department of Law Enforcement (FDLE), Florida Department of Children and Families (DCF), and several licensed members of the Florida legal community violated Misty Janette Crolsin’s Fourteenth Amendment rights.

The violations were deliberate, malicious, with malice and forethought in advance and continuance of RICO.

The 14th Amendment is to apply “equal application” of the laws.

Misty Janette Croslin; in 2009; she being a child rape, physical abuse, and torture victim (child in need of protection) under Florida statute was, and has been, perpetually denied and deprived her rights and protections by the aforementioned agencies, as secured and guaranteed under the U.S. Constitution.

Evidence shows the PCSO, FDLE, and their agents selectively and illegally targeted Misty Janette Croslin; a minor child whose status was governed by Florida Statute – 39.201Mandatory reports of child abuse, abandonment, or neglect; mandatory reports of death; central abuse hotline.

Extremely powerful and equally disturbing evidence shows the PCSO, FDLE, DCF, and their agents had knowledge that Misty Janette Croslin was a victim of rape, abuse, and torture. Agents of the aforementioned knew or should have known that Misty Janette Croslin, at the time of HaLeigh Ann-Marie Cummings’ disappearance, had been a recent victim of rape, abuse, and torture that fell under Florida Statute 827.03Abuse, aggravated abuse, and neglect of a child.

Evidence shows the PCSO, FDLE, and their agents constructively violated Florida Statute 777.201 Entrapment. The aforementioned entrapment executed to clear the way for the agencies to:

(1) Arrest and incarcerate Misty Janette Croslin.

(2) Use Misty Janette Croslin as a prop during a national televised media event where she was made to stand on a dock by the St. John’s River in a prisoner uniform hand-cuffs while divers searched for HaLeigh Ann-Marie Cummings. This was done to create the false appearance Misty Janette Croslin was/is responsible for the disappearance and (non-existent) murder of HaLeigh Ann-Marie Cummings.

(3) Remove the Amber Alert status from HaLeigh Ann-Marie Cummings during the national profile media event.

(4) Conceal from the public the facts and circumstances of a murder of an adult that took place at 202 Green Lane, Satsuma, Florida (Ronald Cummings’ residence) shortly before HaLeigh Ann-Marie Cummings vanished.

(5) Conceal from the public the facts and circumstances surrounding child pornography (federal crime) and sexual molestation of HaLeigh Ann-Marie Cummings.

(5) Keep from public knowledge the fact HaLeigh Ann-Marie Cummings is alive.

(6) Protect a drug trafficking network that is in violation of RICO.

(7) Protect from prosecutions the child pornographers that exploited HaLeigh Ann-Marie Cummings.

Some of the names that will be revealed in the supporting evidence are (but are not limited to):

  • Putnam County Sheriff Jeff Hardy
  • Captain Dominic Piscitello, PCSO
  • Captain John Greenwood, PCSO
  • Special Agent Travis Smith, FDLE
  • Detective Peggy Cone, PCSO
  • William Staubs (a.k.a. Cobra), licensed private investigator in Florida

More names will be released in the future.

Timothy Charles Holmseth will be presenting the information and evidence in advance of a legal action by an attorney on behalf of Misty Janette Croslin.

Does a highly sensitive list of names of judicial officers and high ranking government officials – reaching the Office of the Governor – explain the permanent stall in the HaLeigh Cummings investigation?

It is very possible.

The list, which has been obtained by Write Into Action, contains the actual names of individuals and employees in the following agencies – located primarily in Leon County, Florida.

  • Judge(s)
  • Family of Judges
  • Inspectors General / Governor Scott’s Office
  • U.S. Attorney
  • Court Clerks
  • States Attorneys
  • Florida Department of Law Enforcement agents
  • Sheriff’s Deputies
  • Florida Highway Patrol officers
  • Capital Police
  • Department of Health employees
  • Department of Corrections employees
  • Department of Agriculture employees
  • Florida Department of Revenue employees (auditors)
  • Department of Energy employees
  • Department of Motor Vehicles employees
  • Florida State Representative and politicians

The individuals on the list were all patients at First Impressions, a weight loss clinic located in Tallahassee, Florida, which was owned and operated by Karl and Jane Watts.

As you will see, there is a nexus between First Impressions weight loss clinic and the HaLeigh Cummings case.

In October of 2009, Dr. Mark Hash, a physician at First Impressions, was arrested and charged with two felony counts of ‘Writing a Prescription for Controlled Substance; with no Medical Necessity’ – a third degree felony.

The extremely flimsy charges were later dropped; the charging officer, Special Agent Matt Sears, FDLE, was re-assigned to a much less potent position at the Department of Agriculture; and Hash presently has a lawsuit filed against the FDLE.

Although Hash’s arrest made the regional news, there was no obvious connection to the weight loss clinic or the disappearance of HaLeigh Cummings. On the surface it appeared to be just another pill-mill bust.

However – there was much more going on than was meeting the eye.


Three months after Hash’s arrest in Tallahassee – another set of arrests took place.

On January 20, 2010, Ronald Cummings and Misty (Croslin) Cummings (and several others) became the targets of a drug sting. Ronald Cummings and Misty Croslin were arrested and charged with trafficking prescription drugs.

Misty Croslin, (then) 18, (17 when HaLeigh disappeared) would subsequently be sentenced to an outrageous 25 years in prison.

On the surface the two events would appear un-related – but they’re not.


In March of 2009, William (Cobra) Staubs, a private investigator from Broward County appeared in Putnam County, Florida, proclaiming his desire to find the missing child HaLeigh Cummings who had disappeared on February 10, 2009.

Staubs told the news media he traveled to Putnam County to search for HaLeigh at the behest of his “client” Rev. Richard Grund, an online minister and peripheral witness in the Casey Anthony murder trial.

Staubs never explained Rev. Grund’s interest in the HaLeigh Cummings case.

During an interview with First Coast News in March of 2009, reporter Jessica Clark asked Staubs who was paying his expenses.

“A drug dealer from Miami,” Staubs replied.

Staubs’ reply is perplexing – a licensed private investigator – openly states to a news reporter he is being funded by drug dealers – supposedly – to search for a missing child he should have nothing to do with.

However – a close review of the facts and circumstances reveal that although Staubs has no obvious or legitimate association to the missing child – he is associated with the world of drug trafficking.

The revelations surrounding Staubs begin with the October, 2009 arrest of Dr. Mark Hash.

And they are significant.


William (Cobra) Staubs was Hash’s private investigator.


In 2010, after Hash was arrested, Staubs staked out the First Impressions weight loss clinic and snapped photos of Assistant State Attorneys John Hutchins and his wife, Angelique Knox, leaving the clinic with pills.

At the very time ASA Hutchins and his wife were visiting the clinic to obtain controlled substances – Hutchins was the lead prosecutor on the State’s prosecution of Jane Watts for practicing healthcare without a license- at that very clinic.



As evidenced by the aforementioned client list – Hutchins and Knox were only the tip of the ice-berg of law enforcement and government officials frequenting First Impressions weight loss clinic.

The officials that were visiting First Impressions were illegally obtaining prescription medication, which was being administered by low level employees of the weight loss clinic who had been using Hash’s DEA license number without his knowledge to obtain prescription medication by fraud.

How is it that Staubs is involved in a child kidnapping investigation – being funded by drug dealers – in a case where the child’s father and young wife end up getting arrested for prescription drug trafficking in an undercover sting – AND – he’s also involved in covertly photographing government officials coming and going from a weight loss clinic that is frequented by high ranking government officials?


The names and agencies contained on the aforementioned list reveals that employees of the State of Florida are deeply involved in criminal activity.

The First Impressions client list clearly shows the State of Florida – via the FDLE – has lost its ability to investigate itself and a federal investigation is required.

This is a developing story.

Minnesota author reported to Putnam Sheriff in February that  witness talked about a murder that occurred in front of HaLeigh Cummings shortly before she vanished

by Timothy Charles  Holmseth

Deputies and detectives are  on the scene in Satsuma, Florida  where skeletal remains have been found in a wooded area.

According to News4Jax  the human remains were of an adult.

HaLeigh Cummings was  reported missing from Satsuma on February 10, 2009.

In February, 2013 Timothy Charles Holmseth, author/journalist,  emailed Putnam County Sheriff Jeff Hardy and advised him that his Department’s  press releases about a “homicide investigation” were confusing the public. “I  think the public would be less confused if you would at least provide basic  details about the homicide investigation being conducted for the murdered adult”  Holmseth said.

Holmseth had been told specific details of a violent murder  that took place in the trailer home of Ronald Cummings shortly before HaLeigh  Cummings disappeared. Holmseth was told the victim was an adult and HaLeigh watched  it happen.

Gary Bowling, director of law enforcement, PCSO, responded  to Holmseth and asked if the homicide he was referring to occurred in Putnam County  – he also asked Holmseth the name of the alleged victim.

Holmseth provided the PCSO with a wealth of information  regarding the play-by-play he received.

The witness told Holmseth the man’s body was dragged to the  woods – HaLeigh was walking alongside her father.

Director Bowling requested a copy of Holmseth’s book in 2011.
