News4Jax.com reports the attorney for Hank Croslin Jr. said Thursday that his client told him Joe Overstreet, Croslin’s cousin, killed Haleigh Cummings in a Satsuma mobile home in February 2009 because he couldn’t find the machine gun he came looking for.

“He took the body down to the dock and then he came back without the body, so there you have it,” Croslin’s attorney, James Werter, said. “At the dock that night, Joe Overstreet put Haleigh in the (St. Johns) (R)iver.”

Werters’ statements corroborate what Misty Cummings’ attorney, Robert Fields, said Tuesday. He said Misty Cummings, Haleigh’s former stepmother, told investigators that her cousin, Overstreet, put Haleigh in a black bag and took her away. He said Haleigh was a “substitute” for the gun.
