2010.04.14 - Today's Current News - ***NO DISCUSSIONS HERE PLEASE *** *Late Evening Release! Satsuma Residents: 'It's Just Heartbreaking' Created: 4/13/2010 8:05:00 PM Updated: 4/13/2010 8:34:20 PM <snipped> "In the last year, every place we go into has got the signs here about Haleigh," said Dean Ellis. "It's just heartbreaking to think that somebody's done something to this child." Haleigh, who was 5 when she disappeared in Feb. 2009, has never been far from Satsuma's hearts and minds, residents said, and it's time to relieve the community. "Putting it to rest one way or the other (so) that this can be over with because it's such mental anguish for this whole community..." Ellis said. "If there's not going to be any good news, I think, closure is the only news that will make a difference." Sherlain Moody's 10-year-old daughter attended school with Haleigh. "All the teachers, they're all still wearing the pins and stuff," Moody said. Her daughter still doesn't understand what happened to her classmate, she said. "She's been just kind of sad a little bit, just sad, asking 'What happened to Haleigh? Where's Haleigh, Mom?'"

He said Croslin may have "shed some light" on who was responsible. "Somebody else has possibly been implicated in this," he said. "You need to look away from Misty." Investigators have not described the nature of the lead, but Misty Croslin's father, Hank Croslin Sr., said his mother-in-law told him police have surrounded the Nashville, Tenn., area home where a relative lives. He said he thinks they are waiting for Florida authorities to arrive. Joseph Overstreet is a cousin of Croslin's and was in a dispute with Haleigh's father, Ronald Cummings, when Cummings accused him of stealing a gun. Overstreet's mother, Tina Overstreet, declined to comment when she was reached by phone Tuesday night. However, she told a Nashville TV station, WSMV, her son was at his home in Antioch. He wasn't willing to talk but his mother did offer a comment. "We have not heard anything from anybody in Florida," she told the station. "I know the little girl is still missing. We've not heard anything. My son is at home, not doing anything, bothering nobody. People continue to bother him." Overstreet's mother said police haven't talked to him in six months. Croslin's mother, Lisa Croslin, said her daughter said she was taken to Putnam County but was separated from other members of Haleigh's family and left alone in a room before she was returned to St. Johns County. Lisa Croslin said her daughter told her by phone from the St. Johns jail that she was not interviewed about the case Tuesday. Haleigh's mother, Crystal Sheffield, said she would rather not comment. She and her mother, Marie Griffis, met with the sheriff Tuesday. From their ranch in Baker County, other family members said the Sheriff's Office and property owners didn't want media there and couldn't comment further. *More at link!
