The Cape Cod Times are running an article that officers from a Florida Sheriffs office interviewed a local couple about the February 10th disappearance of then five year old Haleigh Cummings. The Cape Cod Times said:

Deputies from a Florida sheriff’s office questioned the local couple yesterday afternoon at the South Yarmouth state police barracks in relation to the Feb. 10 disappearance of Haleigh Cummings, state police Sgt. Robert Finacom said. He referred all other questions to Cape and Islands District Attorney Michael O’Keefe.

Details are sketchy as to the identity of this couple. The South Yarmouth duty officer would not provide any hard information other than confirm that an interview had indeed taken place. He suggested that we should contact the detective involved for any additional information.

The timing of this interview has piqued my interest, if it was merely an anonymous tip, one of the 4000 plus that have been received by the Putnam County Sheriffs Office it would seem unlikely that they would follow it up on a long weekend. So the question becomes, is this a new tip? And if it is, where did it come from? Could it be as a result of the recent round of re-questioning the family members?

The timing also means that the press can effectively be stonewalled until Tuesday, is something afoot?

I have just got off a conference call with TJ Hart and William “Cobra” Staubs, and an interesting but maybe coincidental piece of information came to light. As best we can tell Misty Croslin’s older brother Timmy and his wife moved to Massachusetts some two months ago. Anecdotal stories claim that the move was because the state offered better social programs.

More information when we get it. Hopefully we will have an update for our radio program later today.
