Satsuma Florida- I have read many different theories regarding what has happened to little Haleigh Ann Marie Cummings. So many my head spins in circles like a wheel on a moving car. I have to wonder does these new allegations of abuse on Haleigh and her brother Jr. have anything to do with her disappearance. Are they connected in any way? Was Haleigh taken as a way of keeping her from further abuse? How come Jr. was left behind?
There has been accusations and allegations flying around in the days since Haleigh disappeared. Most coming from Crystal Sheffield, her mother Marie Griffis and her attorney Kim Picazio. Since Haleigh disappeared it has been no secret that Crystal feels the way she does towards Ron and Misty. She has been accusing them of being unfit, and abusive she is now seeking custody of Jr. The only thing standing in the way ofÂ filing for custody is DFC investigation into the latest allegations against Ron.
Is Ron’s house abusive and unsafe for children? Was Haleigh the victim of child abuse? Is her disappearance due to some terrible violence against her at the hands of her father? Crystal has released some horrendous photographs of Haleigh and Jr. One of which Haleigh has a awful black eye. It was reported that she fell face first onto the concrete ground on the play yard at school. My cousin once fell on the playground on the black top. The whole side of his face turned into a black and blue scab. Literally one half of his face. The school reported the incident as minor scrapes and abrasions. Nothing major. The next day Haleigh appears with a black eye. Was there an altercation that night? I cant help but wonder how badly the children were treated. The other pictures of the children show marks on there legs and arms. Haleigh told Crystal that â€œDaddy hit Jr. with a stick.â€Â Could this be true? A stick?
It has been said over and over not only by Ron but his own mother and grandmother that he only spanks the kids like how DFC has told him he is allowed under Florida state law. That leads me to believe that Department of Families and Children has had to correct Ron on how to properly punish a child. Were they children being badly abused? All of these allegations have been said to be taking away from the true purpose of what needs to be going on. Finding Haleigh and bringing her home. Are they really deflecting from that? If they are related to her disappearance shouldn’t they come out? If these accusations can be proven legitimate and the children are in an abusive home, maybe Jr. should be with his mother. But what do they have to do with Haleigh’s disappearance? Do they have anything to do with it? Or is it just to protect an at risk child from being further at risk. Ron has had full time custody except for the weekends since 2005, four years. Is this the first time Crystal has sought out help for abuse against her children at the hands of their father? Why now? Why not years ago? Why not when it happened? I cant help but wonder if any of this has anything to do with Haleigh’s disappearance.
Haleigh is a five year old girl with blonde hair and brown eyes, she is three feet tall and weighs around 39 pounds. She has a birthmark on her left cheek. She has a medical condition that requires medication. If there is anyone out there with any information that could help in her recovery please call Crime Stoppers at 1-888-277-TIPS (8477) or Putnam County Sheriffs Office at (386)-329-0800.
