This is the third installment of an interview I did with “Jane” in the Putnam County Jail. The next post will contain a copy of the signed statement she gave me. I have it on good authority that the PCSO has been interviewing “Jane.” What she told them I don’t know, but as I understand from non-LE sources, she has confirmed some of what she told me. The exact details of what she’s confirmed to them I don’t know because the PCSO doesn’t talk to me. As I mentioned before, it is a one-way-street between the PCSO and myself. Nevertheless, I’m heartened to know that “Jane” has confirmed some of this story to them. I don’t know what steps they have taken beyond that. I won’t speculate on the significance of this material. But it appears to me that we have two more witnesses to the fact that Misty was indeed home at the mobile home on Green Lane the night that Haleigh disappeared.
I believe the photo below of Joe Overstreet below comes from Cranky Crankerson’s photo bucket and I appreciate all of the photos that he and others have archived. This photo was found by one of the loyal posters on this blog.
Steve: OK What else you got, anything else?
Jane: Hum, no that’s….
Steve: Where did you and Greg go after, um, where did you spend that night?
Jane: We went back to Stokes Landing, Chad Elliot’s house.
Steve: OK. OK. Now, did you see Joe Overstreet with a knife, like a knife on his belt or anything like that? A pocket knife?
Jane: And she kept on saying she knows her cousin did it. She knows he did it. She knows so. And then it’s funny because all of a sudden he just left out of Florida.
Steve: Yeah, the next day.
Jane: The next day he left out of Florida. So I know, I mean it’s obvious.
Steve: OK. I find it interesting that you recall them coming out of that side door, but that’s what you saw, right?
Jane: That night, um, he always carries a knife on his pocket.
Steve: So you’ve met Joe before?
Jane: Yeah, like I’ve seen him before. But yeah, he is always using it to clean his nails out and stuff like that, but yes he always has a knife on him. That is also in the Affidavit.
Jane: Yeah, that’s what I saw.
Steve: But you didn’t see any car or vehicle parked over there?
Jane: I didn’t recall, I didn’t see no, unless they were parked, unless we were parked some type of way we might not see it.
Steve: You might not, you may not have been able to have seen it from the driveway, you might have. I don’t think you can actually see the door, but you could see them coming out of the side there.
Jane: Yeah. The way we were parked I’m not sure, but. Yes. But it was them three there and we was serving them cocaine and beans. Well Gregory Page was.
Steve: Cocaine and beans?
Jane: Ecstasy pills.
Steve: That’s what you call ecstasy, beans?
Jane: Yes, that’s what Gregory Page was serving them. I never touched it. That’s what he served.
Steve: Do you know, now, did Gregory every tell the Sheriff’s Office this stuff you were talking about?
Jane: Yeah, he has been on the news about it.
Steve: I know but I’ve never heard before now that…
Jane: I don’t think he is telling them that he served them.
Steve: Yeah. I don’t think I’ve ever heard before, I mean I’ve been working this case for a long time, that, um Tommy and Joe Overstreet were over there at 7 or 8 o’clock at night.
Jane: Yeah, they were there. They was there.
Steve: I wonder where were Tommy’s little kids?
Jane: Tommy’s little kids are probably inside with Haleigh and them. The kids were inside probably watching TV or playing.
Steve: You never went inside so you don’t know.
Jane: I never went inside. I always stayed outside in the car watching them.
Steve: And you didn’t see Haleigh at all?
Jane: Just talked to them.
Jane: I just said I was just talking to Misty and them. That was it.
Jane: Seen them all out there. I was there that night it happened. That’s why I was so shocked when it happened, I was like, I was just over there. That’s why Misty, um, Nay Nay was like talk to him because you was there, you know.
Steve: Yeah. OK. Well what I’m going to do is ask them to un-handcuff you because then I want you to write out just a few sentences and sign it, OK? In case something disappears. So I’m going to pause this for a minute. Alright.
Steve: OK, um, so Jane, just gave me a signed statement as to the things we have talked about.
As you can see from above, Nay Nay encouraged “Jane” to talk to me. I give credit to Kristina Prevatt, aka Nay Nay for doing the right thing and suggesting to “Jane” that she call me, which she did.
In the next installment we’ll talk about “Jane’s” time in the St. Johns County jail when she was in the same Pod as Misty and what Jane says that Misty told her.
On Sunday, the 20th. of May, Kitty and I arrived at Peanut Island on the backside of high tide. But knowing it’d be slack for about an hour and have maybe another 30 minutes before the out going tide dragged the dirty water over the rock islands, we hoped for clear water. And we were right.
Letting the current push and pull me around the edges of the rocks I find the fish soon ignore me. I am nothing more than a piece of weed or a barnacle-filled plank floating on the surface. Which is fine. After a while the fish become curious and investigate. Up close they come, don’t even have to stretch my arm to feel them fin by. The grunts will swim up and catch their reflection in my mask and yawn. Some will even align themselves along my side, hoping for protection.
I’ve reproduced below some more of the recorded statement I took from “Jane.” Some of what she says has “the ring of truth” to it. I’ll leave it up to you readers to decide what is true. I am hoping that the PCSO will followup on these statements. If true, then that would put Joe Overstreet at the mobile home on the night of Haleigh’s disappearance and the observation is not coming from a family member, but from a disinterested third party who barely even knows any of the family. There is one more part to Jane’s statement which I will post in a week or so.
Steve: Gregory said he would come back? Gregory Page?
Jane: He said he would. He said I’ll hit you up, I’ll come back, I’ll come back I promise. And then like I said, they I was just went over there another time and served them again.
Steve: OK now what time was this second time?
Jane: Well, OK the first time was about two or three, the second time was about five, five-ish by the third time is was about like eight.
Steve: 8:00 PM and the same people were there all three times?
Jane: Yeah, there was another girl also that was a young little girl, the second time, there was a young little girl that was with Haleigh, um, not Haleigh with Misty.
Steve: Haleigh was the young little girl. But you say but this young girl, how young are you talking about?
Jane: About the same age as Misty.
Steve: So she’s seventeen or sixteen.
Jane: Yes. She was also on the drugs also but then…
Steve: And you don’t know her name.
Jane: I didn’t know her name. She was there also.
Steve: You don’t know it now, though?
Steve: White girl?
Jane: Yeah, she was a white girl. She was a young girl. But I didn’t know, I don’t know who she is. But I do know that I did see them their that night. They were all on cocaine and ecstasy pills.
Steve: Um huh
Jane: That was the main thing that they were all on every single one of them.
Steve: OK. Let’s talk about vehicles. Do you remember what vehicles were out there that night?
Jane: Um, not really, no. I didn’t see no vehicles.
Jane: I didn’t see none of them.
Steve: Well they must have gotten there some how.
Jane: Yeah, yeah, I didn’t see no vehicles.
Jane: At all
Steve: Alright. When you went in that trailer. Did you go in?
Jane: I didn’t never go inside.
Jane: We sat in the car in the driveway.
Steve: While they came out?
Jane: Yeah, all of them came out.
Steve: And did they come out through the…
Jane: Side door.
Steve: The side door?
Steve: Not the front door with the screened in porch and stuff?
Steve: They came out the side door?
Jane: They kept coming out the side door.
Steve: Hum. OK.
Jane: Misty, no Misty came out on the front screened in porch one time. She did do that. But then she screened, she shut the screen door because she was mad at I think it was her brother that made her mad or something.
Jane: Yeah because he said something about Ronald. But it was them three, they were all messed up, they kept calling us back and forth over there, over there, over there for more drugs.
Steve: Alright. How much…
Steve: OK. Alright. Did you know Misty before that night when you and Greg were over there selling them drugs?
Steve: You didn’t used to run with her or anything?
Jane: No. Well her and Nay Nay did.
Jane: I met her a couple of times through that.
Steve: Her and Nay Nay ran with Greg, you mean?
Jane: Yeah. Well I never met her through that but I know her through Nay Nay. Like I’ll see her and say, “Hey, what’s up?” and then leave.
Steve: And how did you happen, how did it happen that you were with Greg?
Jane: Because me and Greg are like best friends.
Steve: So you knew he and Misty had hooked up that weekend.
Jane: Gregory Page and Misty had hooked up that weekend. Yes, that did happen.
Steve: OK. And who was making the calls to Greg to bring the drugs over.
Steve: Misty was making them?
Steve: Cocaine and ecstasy.
Jane: She kept saying, “Baby when are you coming in? Are you coming? Hurry up.” That’s exactly what she kept saying.
Steve: OK. Do you know how much they spent? How much they paid Greg altogether that night?
Jane: I just know quite a few. A little bit. She would have spent, um, at least that night, she would spend at least six or seven hundred.
Steve: Six or seven hundred?
Jane: Yes, that night.
Steve: Oh really? Where did she get the money from, do you know?
Jane: I have no idea. She used to trick.
Steve: She used to trick?
Jane: She used to trick.
Steve: How much did she make doing that do you know?
Jane: I have no idea about that. But I know she used to trick. I know a lot of people she associates with. Her and Nay Nay both.
Jane: Yeah, I know a lot of people that they mess with.
Steve: Hum. OK. So the last time you were there that night, this was the night that Haleigh disappeared, Ronald was at work and this was like 8:00 PM, 8 or 9 PM something like that, right?
Steve: And, um, Joe Overstreet was there, Tommy was there and Misty was there.
Jane: Yeah, Tommy was there. Yeah. I didn’t see the girl that time. This was the third time. I didn’t see her there. Maybe she was inside…
Steve: The fifteen or sixteen year old or whoever?
Jane: Yeah, maybe she was inside or something. Them three were the main ones outside again. But, um, I remember one of these was rolling off the ecstasy because he was like,
Steve: Who was?
Jane: Tommy, he was like whoooo like this and kept going like this to his face. And Misty was like (sniff) that’s some good powder man, that’s some good powder. That’s why I never knew how she fell asleep and did not know that the baby was missing because we was giving her powder and she saying how good the powder was but then she said she was sleeping when the baby when missing. That never made sense.
Steve: Well, we know that’s not true.
Jane: Yeah. So I don’t see how she could have went to sleep and been fucked up on them drugs and ecstasy pills, you can’t sleep on them. Them things keep you awake too just like cocaine. So we were serving her both of them. I was a witness that seen it, I heard it. I seen the money get transferred. I seen her go like this (wipe her nose) about how good it was.
Steve: Now, the tape recorder can’t see what you are saying, but you are brushing your nose, right?
Jane: Yeah, she keeps wiping her nose like, she would wipe her nose constantly talking about it’s good powder, wiping her nose, it’s good powder, it’s good powder. So there is no way she could have fell asleep. But then again she said she knows her cousin did it because he would rape her. He raped her before.
Steve: But not Haleigh, Misty you mean?
Jane: Yeah, he raped Misty before, duh, duh, duh so she knows he did it. So I’m like, OK and that’s when I, that’s when I rung the bell so to speak.
Steve: Did she ever say she saw him do it?
Jane: No she never said she saw him do it. She said she knows he did it though.
Jane: Yeah. I pretty much, now I’ve seen everything.
Steve: Yeah, well except you weren’t there…
Jane: Yeah, when Haleigh went missing. Oh yeah, no, or that would have done been found a long time ago. But I know the three that were there and I know all three of them were messed up on ecstasy and cocaine so there ain’t no way Haleigh could have been sleeping. There ain’t no way.
Steve: Misty you mean?
Jane: Yeah, Misty I mean. There ain’t no way Misty could have been sleeping messed up on drugs like that.
