Hot off the TJ press – Simon

The man whose name was difficult to read in the letter Kristina Rene “Nay Nay” Prevatt sent to her boyfriend from jail regarding questioning she received a few days ago about the disappearance of missing 6-year-old Haleigh Cumming of Satsuma, FL., has been identified Joseph Franklin Pytko.

An earlier attempt to decipher his name had it as a street name “Joe Psycho.”

It has been confirmed by sources close to the investigation that Pytko is the man who signed a sworn affidavit stating Prevatt, a party gal pal of the missing child’s stepmom Misty Croslin-Cummings, was at a party with Misty, Greg Page (a man the Misty just had a weekend of sex and drugs with before the child vanished) and the children Haleigh and Junior.

In his sworn statement–according to Prevatt’s jail letter, Pytko said:

“Haleigh ingested oxycontin pills and died. Everybody freaked out and White Boy Greg (Greg Page) put Haleigh in a black bag and dumped her in a pond at the Mondex”

The entire letter can be found in this article.

Pytko has a bit of a past with police and reportedly has had some issues:

“Police were caught in a two-hour standoff with a man threatening suicide early in the morning of June 24, 2008, forcing the closing of St. Johns Avenue until officers forcibly brought the man out.

According to reports from the Putnam County Sheriff’s Office, dispatch received a call from a concerned neighbor stating that Joseph Franklin Pytko, 32, was threatening to commit suicide by shooting himself.

Deputies arrived to the 3300 block of St. Johns Avenue and set up a perimeter around the man’s home.”
