I am glad to see that you all on this site have determined that the sheriff's department is the one who corrupted this case. FYI most small town sheriff's departments do have corrupt officers. I have proof of that but that does not mean all of the officers are corrupt. As far as the Cummings case goes not one of you have inside information including Timothy Holmesluth. Sometimes things take time. This case is not cold yet. Tommy has stopped talking but with Joe in jail things will start rolling again. It is offensive for you all to be demeaning the sheriff's department detectives who have worked endless hours on this case on and off the clock. But heck it is apparent the people on this blog know better than anyone who dun it? LMAO

Oh one more thing. I really hope none of you here live in the county. This way if something happens to you or yours you will not have to call the sheriff's deparment for help.

Yup. Youre so right. I PRAY to god every night to keep my family safe so I dont have to call wonderful PCSO. Lots of us that are on here complaining have had first hand experiences and some have done lots of research.(Robin Maloy being one, and she has un covered plenty that is off color.) Nobody claimed every officer at the PCSO was crooked. You just came up with that part your self. Now if god forbid something terrible does happen, you can bet I will be praying for one of the FEW officers who cares about their job and has respect for the people they serve to show up at my door. NOW with that said I will continue to LMAO at your ignorance.

Is this why this case is over a year old and everyone seems to have stopped talking or is telling lies. Seems some have been questioned to no end and is going down but ole ronnie boy has had no exposure whatsoever and is being offered a plea deal if no one can see after all of this time that you need to be pressuring him and his family to no end or crystal and her family for that matter then something is not right with this case. If this is the opinion of so many people it seems that something must be right about it or everyone would not be feeling this way.

You couldn't have said that better! Chief of Police in Welaka (Charlie) isn't any better. The entire county is a fucking mess! I live in a decent area (don't actually live there just weekend there) and I can tell you that money runs that county and either you have it or you don't. Please do visit Welaka Bait and Tackle

Joe is NOT in jail.. unless he was arrested again, which would be news to me.

HAHA my perception is that you work at the department you are putting down. I know many of the people that work there and they are good people. You will always find corruption in public service no matter where you live. I am not ignorant as you have stated.

Joe is in jail and the case will crack in in the next few months. I have worked on cases that lasted for years. This is not unusual as you all seem to think. In order to make an arrest they need evidence against someone. Not the word of someone else who heard it from someone else.

I see that your location is in Tennessee. How did you get this information?
I'm not disagreeing with you, just asking if you got the info from Overstreet maybe.
I'd also like to know what was said in that 2:13am call that only Merchant seems to know about, and why an officer was at the home of Tommy Croslin (unknown to the dispatcher) when the 3:27 call came in.

I would never attempt to put in an application at that place, let alone accept a job there. All in all your perception is wrong. If you're not ignorant then you really need to open your eyes a little wider.

There was an article in the St. Augustine Record today about Misty confessing the truth about what really happened (this was a recent confession, I think she spilled this on monday). Although she is probably lying once again, it did clearly state that Joe Overstreet was NOT in jail. Where do you get your info from??? For those who havent read it yet: Misty confessed that Joe Overstreet came to the house looking for a gun of Rons, when he couldnt find it he thought Haleigh would be a good substition, apparently Misty 'coward under the sheets and held on to Junior for 5 to 6 minutes while Joe attacked Haliegh', she didnt contact the police for fear of her safety... Maybe this time she is telling the truth but I wouldnt bet on it. All I can say is God bless that poor baby and the small amount of her family that does love her and realize that this is a serious matter and not an excuse to sell/abuse drugs. Happy Birthday baby girl, where ever you may be and may God keep you in his arms until the truth is finally brought to the light and there after.

Oh... one other thing. It also said that after the attack was over Misty saw Joe putting something black or maybe putting her in a black bag and then heard a van door open and then close. Lindsy did tell her nursing class that the SO found deer blood in her van. If this story is finally the truth, it makes a lot of sense.
