Victims Advocate Helps Haleigh's Family
Last Update: 12:35 am
SATSUMA, Fla. -- "I saw the Haleigh Cummings case on the television and it reminded me of my daughter," says Wayanne Kruger, a victims advocate now offering her services to Crystal Sheffield.
Kruger's daughter was molested by her godfather. The case gained national attention in the mid-90's, when at just 12-years-old, Kruger's daughter teamed up with attorney Gloria Allred, and sued her godfather for damages. Since then, Kruger has been working to help other mothers whose children have been victimized.
Her job now is to keep the search for Haleigh alive, by keeping her picture public. She will also help raise money, so Haleigh's mother can afford to stay in Satsuma and wait for her daughter to come home.
Sheffield says it's welcome help. "Just good to see someone so far away cares," she says.
Kruger plans to stay with the family through the rest of the month.
