Misty Cummings is on the defense, and now she, along with Ronald and the rest of the families have banded together and come out swinging at Tim Miller from Texas EquuSearch. Misty now claims Miller forced her into taking the polygraph, voice analysis and hypnosis, and that he brokered search efforts for Haleigh. Well I was there, and Misty Cummings is a liar.
Although Misty still has a restraining order against Hank Jr. (Tommy), and he has one against her (hey they’re free why not waste the courts time) and everyone else hates everyone else, well none of that matters anymore. Now, the entire family is coming to Misty’s defense. Even granny who said, and I quote “If she doesn’t do it, I’m gonna throw her through the damn window” is now saying Misty felt pressured by Miller to take the tests. Personally, I think Misty felt pressured from being threatened to be “thrown through the damn window” to take take the test.
The day of the interviews family tensions were particularly high. Ronald was ready to kill both Misty and her brother, and anyone else that he thinks may have done something to Haleigh. Hey I don’t blame the guy, but he really is serious and he does have a gun, as does Tommy. It’s a concern to the police as well that Ronald may go on a shooting rampage. Anyways, Misty’s public response to the tapes being released to the media and the families support of her lies is exactly why I was asked to be present and note everything that happened and record the interviews.
Misty said she wanted to be hypnotized, she says it during the voice analysis tape (see previous post for tape) and she even wrote a note saying she was being polygraphed because she wanted to clear her name. (see note below)
The day the voice analysis and hypnosis was to occur (a few days after the polygraph), there was actually a point that Misty did get cold feet. Miller was so frustrated with the whole thing he said to Misty “no problem, you call me when your ready, I’m outa here” Ronald chased him down and convinced him, actually begged Miller to stay for a few more hours while HE talked to Misty. We left and went for lunch and before we were done Ronald had called and said she would do it. And she did, and the entire family huddled around awaiting the results, quietly questioning each other about the possibility that Misty could have done this. We taped the interviews at Ronald’s aunt house, and at one point she broke down in tears at the thought that this 17 year old girl could have done something to Haleigh. Then the interviews aired. Then Misty’s stories changed. Then everyone else’s did.
It was in a phone message from Ronald’s mother (link here) that she begged Miller to come to Florida because “Misty was ready to crack.” She even ends the message to Miller with “I Love You.” They knew why Tim was coming and what he was planning on doing. Make no mistake about it.
Historically, in the cases I’ve covered, when someone lies about one thing, it’s safe to assume it’s probably not the first time they’ve lied, if you get my drift. Misty admits that her childhood was not very good, drug addicted parents, sexual abuse, even homelessness. This is a horrible existence for any child, and unthinkable to most of us. But with that kind of upbringing comes the keenest ability to lie from a young age as a survival mechanism. She’s a liar, I witnessed it first hand.
THE TRUTH ABOUT THE TRUCK
In the voice analysis interview, Misty points fingers at her brother Tommy, saying he raped her as a child, and could have done something to Haleigh. She then says people claim they saw a red truck near the house that night (we know Tommy was there smoking marijuana earlier that evening). Tommy drove a red truck that he sold after Haleigh disappeared. The day after the interviews, Miller asked Misty if she knew where the truck was. She had mentioned to us she knew who had bought it and Miller wanted to see the location. Ronald and Misty took Miller to the guy’s house who had bought the truck. Although it wasn’t there at the time, Miller returned to the location with me right after and we recorded the address and went to the police with the info. The title was never transferred to the new owner so the truck is still listed in Misty and Tommy’s mother’s name. The police were going to get the truck and process it. Hopefully it’s not too late.
Tim Miller never gives up. He wanted that truck located and processed and he knew Misty would help him. Why didn’t Misty ever tell police about the truck’s location? Because Misty trusted Tim Miller. Miller’s daughter Laura was murdered in 1984, they never found out who did it, although Tim has a few ideas. Miller refused a 16 Million dollar settlement with the police department that was investigating Laura’s case. He just wanted what was left of his daughter’s bones so he could bury them. Tim Miller turned down money for the Misty tapes. He just wanted them released to put pressure on Misty and hopefully crack her. How dare Misty Cummings make up such a story about a man who attempts to do so much good for people. Misty Cummings is a liar, I know it, the police know it and she knows it.
