It was another lively Sunday afternoon. This week our panel consisted of the Barrett’s, Denny Griffin, TJ Hart, and William “Cobra” Staubs.

We began the program with a quick update on a Miami case. Miami Beach police officer Adam Tavvs is accused of killing two unarmed men in the space of four days, Hussein Shehada and Lawrence McCoy. We ran a radio special on this horrific story some weeks ago. Last week I heard that CNN had finally decided to do a segment on the Tavvs case, this sounded like great news. At last it would get some richly deserved press exposure. Boy was I in for a shock, this was an incredibly one sided pro Miami Beach Police piece. It could have come straight out of the PR department.  My inbox has been busy with complaints about the segment from people close to the case, including Samer Shehada who was an eye witness to the execution of his brother.

To redress the one sided CNN report we will be scheduling another radio program, tentatively for Sat Sept 19, I will put up an article when we have it confirmed. Panelists will include Samer Shehada, attorney John Contini, investigator lee Cohn, and others.

We also briefly spoke about the Caylee Anthony case, and the events of the past week. The most notable of which was the prosecution trying to force the defense to reveal their evidence that the body of Caylee Anthony was moved after Casey Anthony was behind bars. This, Baez claims, proves Casey’s innocence. This sounds lacking in logic in my mind, but I guess they are grasping at straws.

The bulk of the program concerned the recent events in the Haleigh Cummings disappearance. This case is now in its seventh month and the little girl is still missing. There has been some movement in recent weeks, and the heat has been turned up considerably on teen bride and step mother Misty Croslin-Cummings. While not considered a suspect she is thought to be the key to resolving the case.

Tempers are also getting frayed with the Croslin family, with a Restraining Order being made last week by Misty against her brother Hank.

The Croslin’s also seem to be on the verge of pulling up stakes and moving to Massachusetts, for economic reasons. Read into that what you will.

It was an active week and TJ Hart did a fabulous job of bringing us up to date, and fielding the sometimes difficult questions from our callers.
