             DIFFERENT VERSIONS OF WHAT HAPPENED TO HALEIGH
 
                                VERSION 1
 
2009 - February 8 -  Misty Croslin tells police: "I tucked Haleigh and Ronald Jr. into
                               bed about 8 P.M. and went to sleep 2 hours later.
 
                               I awoke at 3 A.M. to find Haleigh missing and a cinder block
                               was propping open the back door."
 
            At dawn that morning, Ronald Cummings came home from work. When Misty
            tells him Haleigh is missing, he reports it to police.
 

In televised interviews - Misty Croslin " I don't know know what happened to Haleigh
                                                         but I believe "the other side of the family" knows
                                                         where she is."

"When asked on NBC's "Today" show why her story keeps changing, Misty, after
a long silence, replied, "I don't know."

                                   SHADES OF CASEY ANTHONY

Misty's father Hank Croslin Jr. - (Jailhouse phone call)
"Do you think she can come home?
Misty "Of course, dad."
Hank Croslin Jr. "I hope and pray to God she does."
Misty "Me too. I mean, I can't tell anybody definitely because
I can't say 100 percent, but God hasn't gave me that sign."


                                    VERSION 2

Robert Fields (Attorney for Misty Croslin) 
"Misty Croslin told investigators the attack came after her cousin arrived
looking for a gun belonging to Haleigh's father, Ronald Cummings.
"Haleigh was a substitute" for the missing gun.
 
Croslin hid beneath a sheet with Ronald Cummings Jr., (3) during
the attack, Croslin told investigators she saw her cousin Joe Overstreet
put the screaming child in a black bag, and she heard a van door open  
and close outside."


Misty Croslin's family has said Overstreet was at the mobile home the
night Haleigh disappeared

                                       REACTION TO LATEST VERSION

 Shawn P. Sirgo (Attorney for Overstreet)
 "Overstreet had nothing to do with the child's disappearance.
  Croslin has changed her story numerous times. I don't believe
  anything she said."

 Teresa Neves (Haleigh's grandmother) "I don't know what to believe.
Why would you hide with a little 5-year-old screaming like that? How can
the neighbors not hear her? Things just don't add up. I think Misty is lying.
 
I still believe she's alive. I don't believe anything Misty says until somebody
can prove it.
 
The thing doesn't even make sense. How can you be under the covers and
also see her in the bag? None of it makes sense.
 

"She's told so many stories, and to just pick and choose which one you
want to believe, I don't believe it's right. Whatever it is, it needs to be proven."
If this version of Misty's story is true, "they should hang her, like an old-fashioned
hanging in the square kind of thing."

                                         SHERIFF'S OFFICE RESPONSE

Putnam County Sheriff's Office "Authorities will not discuss any information
                                                  about the case.

Lt. Johnny Greenwood "The Haleigh Cummings investigation is far too
important to be jeopardized by releasing this type of sensitive information."

The sheriff's office has questioned Croslin's credibility in the past.

2010 - August 17 - Tuesday - marks what would be Haleigh's 7th birthday.
