Hank Croslin Jr., who is in jail on grand theft charges, was questioned by Putnam County police Thursday night about the disappearance of the missing 6-year-old girl Haleigh Cummings.
Croslin Jr., the brother of Haleigh’s stepmom Misty Cummings, was arrested Tuesday on charges unrelated to Haleigh’s disappearance and is being held on $50,000 bond.
Police said they interviewed three other people currently in the Putnam County jail and said they they will have three more people come to the jail for questioning today.
Lt. Johnny Greenwood made these clarifications just moments ago:
“Two of the inmates were interviewed regarding unrelated cases not involving the Haleigh investigation. We interview inmates daily regarding various criminal cases. The statement that we interviewed three other inmates was provided to explain that interviewing inmates is routine. I am not able to provide the names of the individuals interviewed.”
Croslin Jr. was seen being taken from the criminal investigation room back to the jail Thursday around 10 p.m.
Police said they wanted to dispel rumors from earlier Thursday that they were searching or had found Haleigh. They said that’s not the case.
Investigators called Misty Cummings, the last person to see Haleigh the night she went missing, the key person in the investigation. They said knowing her brother was currently in jail gave them all the more reason to question him.
