Or is Misty Cummings sending investigators on a wild goose chase? This week, during one of several long conversations, with Misty Cummings, she revealed something that may, or may be of interest. When asked “is there anything else you can remember, in particular, is there anywhere police should be looking?” she paused and said “there’s a place that needs to be searched again.” She then gave us specific directions and said “look in the forest for a single red rose.” Ronald drove us to the location she described and when we entered into the woods as directed. We found a red plastic rose, covered lightly with brush. It was an eerie moment and we quickly retreated with the intention of going directly to law enforcement, which we did. We returned later with law enforcement and without Ronald Cummings. Investigators bagged the rose and decided the area was worth being searched. The intense, detailed search with law enforcement and Texas EquuSearch is scheduled for tomorrow morning. I have been asked not to disclose the location, because IF this tip is actually credible, no one can attempt to tamper with the evidence.
Here’s what I find interesting about this. If you are completely innocent and allegedly have NO knowledge of a crime or NO knowledge of anyone who may have committed this crime. Why would even allude that you may know where the body is buried? Why would you lead people to an area where you think a little girl may be buried? A little girl who you were the last person known to see her when you claim you have NO idea what happened. Perhaps to distract law enforcement/searchers away from an area where the body actually is? If this turns up to be nothing, is Misty taking tips from the Casey Anthony handbook? “How To Lead Investigators On A Wild Goose Chase”? Perhaps Misty’s tip of what may be buried there is just as telling as what isn’t. We will know more tomorrow.
I just want to say the Putnam Coutny Sheriff’s Dept. is doing an incredible job on this, considering what they have to work with on this case. They are skilled investigators and a wonderful group of people and this case is very close to their hearts.
