ST. JOHNS COUNTY, Fla. -- More jailhouse conversations between Misty Croslin and her father, Hank Croslin, have been released. In the conversations, Misty and her father talked about Misty's drug charges. But the tone quickly changed as the conversation turned to Haleigh Cummings.
Haleigh disappeared Feb. 9, 2009, while in Misty's care. At the time, Misty was dating Haleigh's father, Ronald Cummings. Misty told investigators she put Haleigh to bed that night, and when she woke up, Haleigh was gone. Misty and Ronald were married, but divorced a short time later.
At one point in the jailhouse conversations, Hank and Misty talk of those charges. But his tone changes when the conversation turned to Haleigh.
Hank: I tried to tell you. I know I tried to tell you. But no, you had to do your own thing just like you always had. Well, it's too late to cry over spilled milk anyway, so just forget about it. We all gotta do what we gotta do. I don't understand why it's happening, but it's happening. Don't cry.
Misty: I hate this man! They're trying to ruin our whole lives.
Hank: Yea, whoever did this thing to Haleigh is the one that ruined our lives. They need to ruin the person's life that did this, not ours!
Misty is facing a list of drug charges after she was arrested with her brother, Tommy, and ex-husband Ronald in January. All three are all charged with multiple counts of trafficking hydrocodone. Misty and Ronald are both being held on bail totaling nearly a million dollars.
Wednesday Haleigh's aunt, Hope Sykes, pleaded no contest to her charges on trafficking hydrocodone. She could face up to 15 years in prison.
