Haleigh Cummings Still Missing and Misty Cummings Seems to be Dodging the Truth … What Does She Know?
The case of 5 year old Haleigh Cummings represents yet another missing children’s case in Florida where getting answers and the truth in finding a missing girl seems to be more difficult than one might expect. First we had the Caylee Anthony case where tot mom Casey Anthony all but has refused to explain what happened and why her daughter was found dead approximately 1/2 mile from where she lived.
Now we are presented with Misty Croslin Cummings, who’s story does not seem to be passing muster. What does Misty know about the disappearance of Haleigh and why is she not telling it?

Maybe the teen bride really doesn’t know anything…she appears to have been absent, maybe in reality or stoned!!
i don’t think misty is too intelligent. she is a fool to marry so young and to someone who is obviously abusive. i don’t understand how misty’s parents could have given permission for them to get married. i wonder is misty is pregnant?
Blink is right, and so isn’t Gigi. Misty Cronin knows the ugly truth. She isn’t smart enough to pull off hiding it for too much longer. While she may not have been directly involved herself, something tells me that she definetly knows much more than she is telling.
After reading/watching videos/studying the demeanor/words/actions of all – I believe Ron was livid pissed at Misty for going on a 3-day bender (Fri/Sat/Sun) and dragged her home on the morning of Mon., 2/9/09. He took his anger out on Haleigh, possibly backhanded her to her death or knocked her out cold. He decided then and there he would end up in prision for either child abuse or murder – & told Misty to help him dump the body or he w/kill her. I believe Ron put HL in his car and drove her to his work. (It has been stated on JVM by Ron’s pastor that Ron told the pastor “I came home after working 8 hrs & my daughter was gone”. The shifts @PDM are 6am-4am and 4:30pm-3am. So, IF in fact, he only worked an 8 hr. day on the day HL went missing, that would mean he did not leave for work until around 6pm or so. Plenty of time for him to cover this up – make up the “back door/cinder block” theory. I think Ron took an either dead or knocked out HL to his work and smashed her to death w/a barge. Even typing these words freaks me out. Misty prolly went on a major bender after Ron went to work, had someone over & was completely out of it. Ron comes home to an f’d up Misty – he tells her to call 911 and the call (“I will shoot whoever took my child”) is completely staged. Just MOO!!!
Blink…I love when you say it like it is…
She knows and she’s pregnant.
Yep something really “funny” about this story. And, people don’t run and get married 2 weeks after their daughter goes missing just “because”.
Misty knows and I believe deep inside Ron knows. They have to stick together like GLUE and make the $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$ get on national television. This is their aim to fame. Sad but sickenly TRUE ! I feel so sorry for Ron’s mother she breaks my heart. I only wish they would find poor Haleigh.
Blink’s article shed alot of light. If Misty was having an affair with this “white boy Gregg’ or whatever his name is, I believe it will turn out to have alot to do with the truth..maybe ALL of the truth.
My guess is she had this person over to the trailer while Ron was gone and he left taking Haleigh with him. She knows if this is tru, Ron probably has assumptions…but Ron did make a statement he wanted to “keep his enemies closest.” Who did he just make the closest person to him?
Let’s give Ron some credit in that he may have done this to try and get the truth out of Misty for his daughter’s sake. Time will tell.
WOW!!! It’s a wonder investigators don’t come to this site to get their information. You people seem to know it all.
i can’t seem to get an email through but would be so thankful if scaredmonkeys would take a look at this case: http://finddavidhoward.blogspot.com/
it’s the brother-in-law of a friend who’s gone missing. thanks! txchic
Gee Jack, you have a WAY low expectation of law enforcement if you think they can learn anything from us. This is called a blog. It’s where we armchair detectives play and discuss our personal opinions.
Do YOU have anything to add, or are you in here to stroke your own ego? I mean, you can’t be very bright if you believe we “know it all”.
I don’t have a theory as to what really happened to Haleigh, but I said early on that Ron “thug wanna be” Cummings and his USE TO BE “dumb bitch girlfriend” (as Ron so fondly referred to Misty as to police on the scene after the 911 call) are responsible for Haleigh’s disappearance.
Mr. and Mrs. Ronald Cummings killed this poor, innocent child I don’t understand why law enforcement hasn’t picked up their trashy arses, locking ‘em up under the jail never to see the light of day again.
Maybe Misty had som1 over & Haleigh woke up & she was scared Ron wld find out, so they thot they needed to get rid of her
Did the police do a drug test on Ron and Misty?
The keystone Florida police have no clue on what happened! Geraldo said,”Ron Cummings was stoned when he interviewed him.” Believe me Geraldo is a expert on Stoned.
I remember a Dragnet episode were the pot heads left the baby in the bathtub. Probably what happened in this case!
Misty discovered, Haleigh, had died from neglect do to Ron and Misty’s drug trips. So Haleigh’s body was probably put into the garbage bin that I heard on the news cadaver dogs had a hit on days or a week earlier.
Have you noticed how Misty and Ron’s eye lids droop? That is from hard drugs like H.
I thought Ronald’s over compensating body movements was a clear indication that he was very high or lying about abusing his daughter,as for Misty she might be afraid having to help with a whole cover up or like GiGi said mabey shes just not very intelligent,I think its both.
Greg – I guess that explains why Ron, the “thug wanna be”, was wearing DARK sunglasses when he was making a public plea for whoever (or is it whomever?) has Haleigh to drop her off somewhere safe. He didn’t want anyone to see how red or glassy (and pupils dilated) his eyes were…
Sunshine…interesting thought…hmmm thinking about that and it sounds like that could be a very reasonable explanation…
things that make you go hmmmmmmm
She knows, he knows, and now the police know. Soon my friends soon.
Misty and Ron covered this up so well but Ron can’t act even though he thinks he does a great job. Misty now has her story straight after many hours of practice.
D Caterino – What do the police know?
I don’t have a theory, but i’m tired of waiting for word on this poor child. Misty and Ron either know first hand what happened, or they sure as Hell know the ‘who, what, when and why.
So what’s taking so damn long? Where is this child?
I really hope to hear good news, and soon, but i’m not getting my hopes up.
Meanwhile, I think we should be respectful of eachother’s opinions and ideas. We don’t know what another’s tone may be when they type here, or how smart they may or may not be. So, perhaps some of us should withhold judgement on one another.
Sometimes, LE are so involved in cases that, like anyone, they’re getting too close to see, …and beleive it or not, they may just stop in to *blogs like this* just to see what’s on the minds of others. And to actually get a fresh idea, is not at all unheard of.
I have 2 sons 1 daughter, & if one of them were missing I would be out there day & nite looking for them, I don’t know what I would do w/o them, they’re my whole life, I can’t even understand how Haleighs paremts could think of anything else. when I get up in the nite I always peek in kids room to make sure they r ok.
It’s just so unfair. Haleigh’s an innocent child and if they didn’t want her, all they had to do was let a relative take her or put her up for adoption.
I don’t think these two druggies will ever tell the truth about what happened. I don’t think the case will be solved. If it is solved one day, I think Misty is the key to everything. But with all their money from tv appearances and donations, trailer trash Ronald has enough money to keep Misty stoned out of her mind. She will never leave him as he is her source of drugs. Addicts will do ANYTHING to get money for dope. Even let other addicts have sex with their children in exchange for it. Throw Misty in the tank and let her start jonesing really hard and she will sing like a canary so she can get back on the streets and back to her dope. Other than that, this may end up as a cold case. Whoever harmed that child deserves the death penalty. And not just some nice lethal injection either. They need the old school penalty- hanging or the electric chair.
i agree with you springman. misty should be in jail. take the cigarettes, drugs and she will sing. i think all those cigarettes has blocked the oxygen to her brain. ron & misty are in this together. How could you stay with someone that your child was in there care in your home and she goes missing? the other child sees the couch jumping and sees a man with squeaky shoes. witnesses say she was out of the home that night and children were on automatic pilot. he is still with her. flys out to new york for interview. gets married. gets a tatoo with money, the good hearted people have sent to him to look for haleigh while hes out of work. he goes to tattoo parlor and brags about money hes gotten. ron & misty are in on this together. now that the law is on there heels. no more interviews from those two. crystal and her lawyer give interviews. crystal has nothing to hide. except fact shes been hiding from ron all these years. she would have taken care of her babies. but that monster kept her from them. when he wasnt out looking for teenage girls. good example dad. whew……………………..now i have vented. blood test ron & misty daily and put tracking devices on them. they are shady characters. if you walk like a duck and quack like a duck you are a damn duck.
Neves mind is running, when she call cobra, and walked him inside the woods and old shaggy old trailer, i feel Neves, already nos more than she say, Cobra said at the very end, i been set-up. Cobra better think quickly now.
I know Misty and Ron are guilty for what has happened to haleigh. I dont know what exactly happened, but I agree the police need to lock up Ron and misty . dont let them out until tjhey tell the truth about haleigh. There is a lot of people who agree. Its time to be honest, to tell the truth. Thw world wants to know wheres haleigh, what happenedto her. They need to own up .She deserves to come home or God-forbid let her be buried.she didnt deserve this Crystal needs to get her kids back right away. hopefully, haleigh will come home. Police all of us have figured out whos guilty put them in jail and if haleigh turns up dead,Misty and Ron both need to be hung that way they willbe hung and have a cuse on them,Nancy Grace, does not know whats going on yet.just put them in jail.
What I don’t understand is why the police didn’t search the place that the dumpster had been emptied previously. From what I have heard on the news, cadaver dogs only hit on a dead person so if 3 of them hit that dumpster why did police say they searched the dumpster, didn’t find anything and that’s the end of it. What? That doesn’t make any sense. What do you guys think? It drives me crazy when police seem to drop the ball like they did in the Caylee case too.
Misty was not at HOME when little Haleigh went missing. I truly believe that those poor children were left alone and when Misty came home, the little girl was gone. Also is adults “Ron” allow to married a child “Misty” in the state of Florida, how long have this grow man been messing around with this child “Misty”. Ron should be in jail for statutory rape. There is no way Misty should be caring for two small children, when she a child herself. This is shame!
this is what happens when a mother is absent from her children. fathers dont have that motherly instinct to protect them from all harm. i didnt realize that crystal had 5 children. i was informed by another blogger. that shocked me. if you cant take care of 2 you already have, why have 3 more. if she has 3 more and haleigh is only 5, thats one a year for 5 years. i was also told she was on welfare. last baby was by her step brother. do they not have a dead beat dad system in florida. pay childsupport or loose your drivers license, go to jail. if misty thinks shes having fun on all those drugs, she cant even look at the sunshine, her eyes are closed. get you some sunglasses child. misty needs to tell the truth about haleigh she knows the truth. ronald has got to be a sick ticket to stay with her. i couldnt even look at her if she let my child go missing. she might tell the truth if people would quit sending her & ron money. haleigh is a beautiful little girl. the jane mitchell show tonight they discussed ron possibly being a snitch for law enforcement the reason he never did any time for his drug arrest. that potentially put his whole family in danger. ron should have done prison time and not allowed this to happen to his family. (if this is the reason.)
I can not get my mind off the supercharged Jerry Springer circus case. I wish that the cops would just spill the beans on what they have and find this poor little girl!!
I have a few questions that just keep running in mind, can someone answer please:
1. Cadaver dogs hit on dumpster, but nothing else came from that search. Do cadaver dogs only hit if they smell cadaver? If yes, then something was dead in trash, correct?
2. In case of police taking van for analysis? In crime case IF evidence is found inside, do they return it?
Thanks to whomever lets me know this.
i believe misty nos much more of haleighs disaperance she needs to tell the truth are theyll never find haleigh misty seems to be a young stupid kid who got married to hide something if she didnt kill her then she and haleighs dad got to get off there ass and stop fighting with haleighs real mom and find there daughter where the hell is she im worried misty was humping it all over the couch with another dude while wasted and haleigh woke up confused took off out the door and was drug off in the pond close by by a alligator im not being mean but its florida and it woulnt take nothing for that to have happened they said cadaver dogs hit out by the pond its sad but where is this little girl
i do agree with toni its florida maybe noone is facing the fact the girl could been in the pond alligators will drag u off i really hope im wrong but maybe its a horrible accident thats worth more investigating some where down the line misty will tell the truth the door had to be open for haleigh to get out taken are not
why is misty keeping so quiet ronald you married her to protect her but from what i believe misty was cheatn on him and haleigh was goin to tell daddy and misty shut her up theres rumors u beat haleighs mom those seem kinda shaky rumors misty is young and seems to be a street whore so maybe its time the cops get to the bottom of this haleigh has been gone to long misty nos who what why when and where why is misty not been arrestd for obstruction shes never told a truth yet
I get a feeling like Misty may know what happened to Haleigh and was envolved or not but either way I have a feeling sh eis just a scared teen who telling the truth means consequences. I think maybe Ron was abusive and explosive and she obviously comes form trailer trash and seeks approval and love, Obviously she is not getting enough at home if her parent allowed her to marry that grown man. I think she is scared of Ron. I think that little boy needs ot be taken out of their home and Misty locked up getting psychiatric help to uncover what has happened. She looks like drugs and abuse have worn on her and she being a teen does not have the brain function necessary to problem solve. Combine drugs and she is nothing more than a child. They have to know what or who did whatever to that little girl. The person who took her walked right in, seems confidently and just took the girl. Strangers don’t do that. I pray this girl is found alive but doubt looms in my gut
I know everyone will react to this negatively, but it needs to be said. The police prey (yes prey) on poor white trash as you all so like to refer to Ronald Cummings and his friends, family and associates, and often literally target them as snitches or otherwise set them up/use them in an effort to get to the “big bust”. I understand the problem of drugs. It is killing our nation. BUT in this case, the way the cops operate, the means do not justify the ends at all. Many young lives are ruined by involvement, whether willing or unwitting in these entrapping schemes the cops concoct to “get their man”. Young, poor and white, and redneck is usually a prime target in Texas and Florida. I even know of someone who was offered the opportunity of a legitimate construction job up front (he was a new, young father and unemployed of course, because illegal immigrants usurp all of the entry level and blue collar work for young men) as the bait to get him involved with them. Two days later, these friendly dudes (undercover 5-0) asked the unsuspecting guy if he could buy them some weed. It escalated into a nightmare from there. By the way, he didn’t know any drug lords, and no big bust materialized. I just don’t think people realize, in their zeal to rid their neighborhoods of drugs, that other lives get caught in the crossfire. Often young, uneducated, and poor.
By the way, there was no job. He stood on his porch at 5 a.m. ready to work, and that pickup truck never came to get him. A few days later he was busted with a small amount of marijuana and offered a deal…become a full-born narc. What did he get out of his compliance? A brand new hard-core drug addiction and eventually a prison term. No baby. No wife. No job. No future. I can hear the responses already, but just remember, we ALL make mistakes, and this was an 18 year old boy I am talking about. He smoked a little ganja once in awhile, a highschool dropout slacker type. Which I do not condone, but it hardly merits him what ended up transpiring. When those scumbag undercovers rolled up on him, it was over before he knew it. They literally pulled up into his yard and asked him if he was looking for work. Disgusting. Enjoy bashing me with your pro-cop rhetoric. I am sure I will take a beating. The point I am trying to get across is that in the end, it is going to come down to the fact that THE POLICE endangered Haleigh Cummings with their schemes that entangled Ronald Cummings to begin with. They had to have known he had custody of two babies in a small town like that. And they used him as a snitch anyway. THEY DO NOT CARE. Think about it. That’s all I ask. God Bless Haleigh and Ron Jr. and keep them safe!
i think its time someone get the story straight misty put that brick to hold the door open shes a cheatn slut druggy and ronald beat the hell out of her its all about drugs and the truth of misty doing some thing with haleigh if she didnt feed her to the gators then talk allready where is she only misty knows talk bch talk before u end up on death row for something u might not have done
all i got to say is gone by gators i think misty dumped haleigh in a gator infested pond
If Misty is pregnant, maybe she found out and did not tell Ron. Maybe Misty did not want to compete for Ron’s affection or feel that her child would be second rate to Haleigh. So maybe Misty did something to Haleigh and fabricated the whole story to Ron. That way she could have her cake and eat it too.
This whole story is completely bizarre and makes no sense. I don’t know why but it kind of reminds me about that girl Jessica Lunsford who had disappeard out of her own bed at night..and people kept questioning the parents and then it turned out to be a sexual predator living not even a couple houses away. I think they should research sex offenders in the area and question them. Maybe misty had a friend that was a child predator or who was just not a good person to be around (even though she isn’t that bright and she probably all of her friends weren’t the least bit good to be around). Maybe while Ron was at work Misty decided to party with some friends, you know drink, do some drugs, and now she doesn’t remember a thing (i’m not sticking up for her because I know she is lying about something, she changes her story as if she knows the police know that she is lying. I think she knows so much more than what she is telling and she’s scared to death to tell anyone because she doesn’t want ot be responsible, a bunch of teens don’t own up to what they do and do not want to take responsibility for their actions, i mean come on she’s seventeen no job, no education (she stated that she had not been in school in forever) and she is getting married! come on..she knows
How come no one talks about the possibility of Amber Brooks hurting Haleigh with the help of Nay Nay to set up Misty to get Ron back??? I think they drugged Haleigh and Misty at the party and got Misty to have sex with someone else and are blackmailing her & setting her up with this letter!
So a friend and I were speculating… after Ron leaves for work, and from what I read his mother had been over that night too and left at about 7:30pm, Misty gets the kids ready for bed, but not before doping Haleigh up with something to make sure she stays asleep. She then takes off to go have a good time like she had so many times before. She comes home with a ‘friend’, where they proceed to ‘make the couch squeak’. She finally goes in to check on the kids only to find Haleigh overdosed and freaks out. That’s when her ‘friend’ takes the child, not telling Misty where he is going, leaving her to clean any evidence up. Of coarse neither of them realizing little JR awake and seeing his sister being carried off.
Of coarse this is just one theory we came up with. The other basically involves her taking off and someone watching in the shadows. So when she returns home shortly before Ron, she realizes Haleigh gone and freaks. She doesn’t want to tell the truth since she’s probably afraid (which she should be!) that someone will beat the snot out of her for doing something so irresponsible! Whatever it is though, she needs to come clean. The truth will come out in the end. It’s already beginning to unravel.
i have a commit to say … when misty left the home that nite to go to a party she may have put the brick at the door to get back in, has any body thought of this? Ron it ends with misty and soon you will know what kind of person you married..when you mess with drugs nothing happens that good .. a drug addict is noone to leave your children with . you no she was on drugs it shows so i hope you find a capable babysitter when you work.. wish you all the luck praying for you and the children …
They don’t have to be good actors, they just have to be consistent in their storytelling and not break under pressure. Now the burden of hard proof lies on the law. I doubt they’ll pull it off though.
[...] the individual who was babysitting Haleigh Cummings when she went missing. The same person who has dodged the truth and failed lie detector tests. Previously, Haleigh’s dad, Ronald Cummings was arrested [...]
I believe they both know she is dead. Why would ronald send a balloon up in the air telling haleigh they were married just like she wanted them to. Because he knows she is dead. A parent holds onto, the thought their alive and keeps believing there alive until they are forced to see that they are dead. Not Misty or Ronald they slip and talk in past tense. Why look they know she is dead.Ronald never sounded real to me, to me sounded like he was tryen to take suspension off of him. He played loud ,tough guy way to long and still uses it when he feels it needed. Just my gut feelings, time will tell. Misty is terrified of Ronald as well as in love, she won’t talk unless she thinks he did or he says she killed haleigh. She will not give ronald up unless they make her believe ronald told them everything and ronald is afraid she will talk the longer she is in jail. He is afraid now of what misty will say. He is losing control over misty now that they are in jail. He is afraid, if they can convince misty they can protect her if she will tell then she might talk.
This what I don’t get how could this girl knowing what happened to that baby uh becuase she was ther with her brother and cousin. How could she knowing all this and in the process marry the baby’s dad for a whole year. She has to be a horrible person to not to have said anything and she could have probably save haleys life had she said something what a freak.
I dunno what to think about this situation.I have a opinion but dont want to give it due to certain people who like to go againts you and play arm chair detective,so im just sitting back and letting the police do the work,Im sure the detectives and pyschologist know what they are doing,ya know the police only let the media know so much,its part of their game plan,im sure you all know this but when all is said and done the police have them ALL in check..just the D.A dont get a stoooopid jury…
Dont any of you watch the 1st 48? Do like the blacks and latino’s do..ya dont talk ya walk…im latino so dont accuse me of being racist..all kidding aside,im sure the police will break all of them,they know exactly how to handle this case,they just have to do it slow,and use set up tatics via media,they got em all caught,just a matter of time..
I think that the cops need to make them both take a polly graph and its time fir misty to be locked up for good bc what she has done to that little girl…I have 4 little boys and I hate leaving them alone with someone even if I have known them forever I’m scared that this will happen to my babies. ron should have taken the kids to there grandmothers so she could watch them instead of misty this prolly wouldn’t have happened if he would have done that.
