ST. JOHNS COUNTY, Fla. -- More jailhouse tapes have been released between Misty Croslin and her father Hank Croslin, Sr. In these tapes, Hank Sr. can be heard telling Misty she needs to come clean.

Here is an excerpt from the tape:

Hank Sr.: The idea is that whatever you know you need to tell them.
Misty: Daddy, I have!
Hank Sr.: OK.
Misty: Dad, it's not may fault they don't listen.

During the conversation, Misty also told her father that she never pointed the finger at her brother Tommy. Misty said her lie detector tests came back inconclusive because she was too nervous to answer the questions.

They talk a lot about Misty lawyer, Robert Fields, and her upcoming court dates. Misty said she trusts Fields and looks forward to getting out.

Misty is jailed on drug charges.

Misty, Ronald Cummings, Misty's brother, and two others were arrested and jailed in January to face charges of trafficking in prescription medications.

Misty was briefly married to Ronald, Haleigh Cummings' father. Haleigh disappeared from her home in Satsuma in February 2009. Misty was babysitting her and her younger brother at the time while Cummings was at work. Misty said then that she woke up in the middle of the night and Haleigh was gone.

An April tip led investigators to conduct an intense three-day search at the Shell Harbour boat ramp south of Satsuma in Putnam County.

According to the sheriff's office, divers had uncovered many bones and placed them near the dock to dry. They were mostly deer bones, with some alligator and possibly other animal bones.

An anthropologist was on the scene to identify them.

The sheriff's office said Croslin saw the bones as she was being led to the ramp, but at no time did investigators tell her they were human bones.

In a November interview with First Coast News, Cummings stood by Croslin, who was his wife then. During the interview, she claimed she did not know what happened to Haleigh.
