These two cases have captured the hearts of many of us. How can anyone do harm to a young child? Even stranger is that both cases are within the same geographical area. One has ended with the sad discovery of a bag of bones, and the mother Casey Anthony sits behind bars awaiting trial. Although to be honest with you I think she should be joined inside by some of her relatives, as a few of them seem to have either consciously or subconsciously contributed to her demise.

The second case of young Haleigh Cummings is almost as perplexing. The police are being tight lipped, but it seems like a dragnet is being put in place, and a great deal of interest seems to focus on the 17 year old babysitter/lover and now wife, Misty.

With this as our background we launched our weekly radio show. Joining me in the studio was my wife Jan Barrett, from Oregon Ms. Pickles, from Sin City, Nevada, crime writer and author Denny Griffin, and from Gainsville, Florida, seasoned news reporter TJ Hart. Yes, it is the same guy we hear on Nancy Grace and Jane Valez Mitchell.

For weeks we have been speculating about the Haleigh Cummings story, but we were far away, this was the first show that we were able to bring in someone who is at ‘ground zero’. TJ Hart works for Sky 97.3 News Talk Radio and is right in the thick of the action. He is also happy to share his email address for anyone to write in with tips or other information.

It was a lively hour of Internet radio. We do seem to have the best callers and panelists!

I do not claim to be an expert, but I thought that I understood this case reasonably well. How wrong I was! TJ was able to fill us all in on the small details that do not make it to the 30 second sound bite seen in TV. There is a lot more to the Haleigh Cummings case than meets the eye.

We’d like to thank TJ for being our guest on todays show as well as our panel and all of our supporters.
