I don't quite agree in some aspects, but do agree in many of your comments JRW. The thing is, when looking at the facts, there is no way skank Teresa and her whale mama would have been covering up for Misty with all their many schemes, nor would LE have covered up for her. But they WOULD have and DID cover up for Ronald, and IMO, coerced Misty into covering up for him with her numerous lies.Sorry Anne, I just don't have the same faith in Misty as you do. That little smartazz as in street wise , has many fooled. NOT me though. she too knows what happened and most certain was involved in some way ! NO ONE is gonna take the fall for something they didn't do. Well. I wonder how she feels now about loverboy.?? She was so dang jealous of little Hailey , one can hear that in some of her videos blabbering on w/ her smirk on her face..They all don't give two shits about Hailey, she too is certainly one of them. that's my take. God will get them.
Yes, Misty was a streetwise smartass, but only as streetwise as a 16 year old, just turned 17 can be who thinks she's a woman but isn't. She was their perfect solution. I don't believe Misty was jeolous of Haleigh or Jr. Misty wanted to leave Ron and tried to leave him, even before he beat her and threw her out just prior to Haleigh's disappearance. Both skank & mama talked about how much the kids loved Misty and how they would beg her to come back, that the kids would cry for Misty. I believe she was good to those kids. That is one of the few things they said that I actually believe.
Don't forget, the first call about Haleigh missing was made at 2:13 a.m. by someone from Ron's MH to a private line at the SO, and it was THEN that the scheme was laid out to protect Ronald. LE already knew when the 3:37 a.m. call came in that Haleigh was missing. LE would not have been protecting Misty (why would they?), but they certainly would have (and did) protect Ronald & his family. You have only to look back at his prior record to know this. He got away with everything he ever did.
