Casey Anthony 2013Not surprisingly, the Casey Anthony saga has not come to pass. Casey Anthony is back in the headlines after 3 years since Orange County Florida miserably failed to prove she murdered her beautiful, well-loved 2 ½  year old daughter, Caylee Marie Anthony.

After the shocking verdict in July 2011 and after spending 3 years in solitary confinement awaiting trial, she solemnly attempted to regain her life as a free citizen.  True, she was acquitted of 1st degree murder but was found guilty of lying to law enforcement.  For that she was sentenced to four years in prison with credit for time served but she would have to spend another year of probation under the guidance of Orange County Corrections stemming from a 2010 check fraud conviction.  With all criminal debts paid, Casey Anthony then filed for bankruptcy.

Subsequent to the acquittal, Anthony was bombarded with several bogus lawsuits. On July 7, 2011, only 2 days after she was acquitted, Tim Miller owner of a non-profit organization Texas Equusearch posed a question to the public.  Should he or should he not file a lawsuit against Casey Anthony or her attorney Jose Baez? The public roared “yes!”

He claims he spent over $100,000 searching for Casey’s daughter Caylee. He’s claiming this because he says Casey Anthony or her attorney Jose Baez asked for his help.
Where are the records of this phone call? Where is the documentation, a letter, an email?

I’ve searched the documents released and haven’t found one correspondence between Casey Anthony and Tim Miller.

The only words Tim Miller ever said was that when he was leaving the Anthony home, Casey said to him, “Well thanks for being here, I know she’s alive out there somewhere… So please bring her back” so he says.

Of course, at the peak of this missing child investigation, while on the Nancy Grace Show, Miller was more than happy to repeat her response to solidify what the general public already wanted to believe, Casey Anthony didn’t care about Caylee.

Thanks to the Sunshine Laws and Orlando local media, it’s public knowledge that it was Casey’s mother Cindy Anthony who called Tim Miller, asking for his help. And she wanted Tim Miller to look for a live missing Caylee, not a body.

Apparently Tim Miller paid no attention to Cindy nor to Casey’s farewell to him because he in all of his searches for Caylee, he never searched for a live missing child. He only searched for a body, a body which he ironically failed to find that was only 14 or so houses from the Anthony home.  At that juncture, his only lost was a 4-wheel ATV which he damaged while searching the exact area where Roy Kronk would officially find her body on December 11, 2008.

The irony is rich

quote Judge Stan Strickland.

So why did Tim Miller and his attorney Marc Wites sue Casey Anthony and how did he win his case?

This may be the answer.  According to The Huffington Post…

“Bankruptcy trustee Stephen Meininger wanted her creditors to benefit from her story, but Anthony’s lawyers objected, raising constitutional and other issues.”

Tim Miller and his attorney Marc Wites settled the suit. Under the settlement, Anthony will not object to Texas EquuSearch being named as a $75,000 creditor in her bankruptcy case, and Texas EquuSearch will not object to Anthony’s bankruptcy petition for discharge. But it doesn’t end there for Casey.

Standing behind Tim Miller in line for a piece of the “Imaginary Casey Anthony Pie” is motel maid Zenaida Gonzalez and the suspicious finder of Caylee’s remains, meter-reader Roy Kronk.

Casey Anthony Fights Back

Earlier this month, Anthony’s lawyers filed 2 motions asking a Federal judge to throw out both defamation suits. Her new lawyers say that the lawsuits are “spurious” and fail to establish “willful and malicious” acts which are the only way they are lawful.

Anthony’s lawyers went on to say…

“This travesty has gone on long enough,” Ms. Anthony implores the Court to end this matter so she can begin the fresh start she is promised by the law.”

Certainly Casey Anthony deserves a fresh start both legally and morally. Her new lawyers are fighting vehemently to get her there.  No doubt, her most valuable asset is the rights to her life story.

As I recall in the earliest days of this strange disappearance of a child, Casey admonished the press for their harsh coverage of her case. In one of Casey’s truthful moments she swore when this was over that she’d never give them a press conference. She told the truth.

July 7, 2011, 2 days after Casey Anthony was acquitted, Tim Miller of Texas Equusearch put the word out to the public. Should he or should he not file a lawsuit against Casey Anthony or her attorney Jose Baez? He claims he spent over $100,000 searching for Casey’s 2 ½ year old daughter, Caylee Marie. Perhaps he’s claiming this because Casey Anthony or Jose Baez asked for his help.
Where are the records of this phone call? Where is the documentation, a letter, an email? I’ve searched the documents released and haven’t found one correspondence between Casey Anthony and Tim Miller.
Did Jose Baez contact him? He hasn’t mentioned a call or an email on this matter. The only thing that Jose Baez asked Tim Miller was for access to TES records to see which searchers searched where.

This information was very important to Jose Baez because the remains of the victim were found in an area where Tim Miller searched.  Even if it wasn’t the exact location, her remains were in very close proximity to where his searchers had looked but Tim Miller quickly lawyered up and those records remained sealed for over a year and are partially sealed today. Baez was only allowed to view the records. For whatever reason, we, the public may never know just how close Tim and his searchers were to Area A, the location where Caylee’s remains were officially found on December 11, 2008.

Tim Miller, founder of a non-profit organization Texas EquuSearch was deterred by high water while searching this area of Suburban Drive as he searched in early August of 2008, a week or so later, he left Orlando after losing a 4 wheeler while attempting to search the Wooded Area which is 14 houses away from the suspect. He didn’t return until August 30th when he set up base at a local Holiday Inn.

Thanks to the Sunshine Laws and Orlando local media, it’s public knowledge that it was Casey’s mother Cindy Anthony who called Tim Miller, asking for his help. And she wanted Tim Miller to look for a live missing Caylee, not a deceased toddler. Apparently Tim Miller paid no attention to Cindy nor to Casey’s farewell to him because he in all of his searches for Caylee, never searched for a live missing child.

After the shocking verdict was read on July 5, 2011, while on CNN, Tim Miller addressed the public.  He was seeking public approval because he knew the staunch opinators would not be pleased with anyone who profitted off of Caylee Anthony’s death.  So he took it to a vote.  Should he sue Casey Anthony?

On July 12, 2011, Only days before her release from jail, Casey Anthony got the news. Tim Miller had filed a civil lawsuit against her for $112,000, the cost for his search team. Tim Miller claims it was Casey’s lies that cost him this money.
He claims that when he was leaving the Anthony home, Casey said to him, “Well thanks for being here, I know she’s alive out there somewhere… So please bring her back.”
This was the typical mantra for Casey at the time and more importantly, those words did not change Tim Miller’s type of search. When he came back a couple of weeks later, he continued searching for a body and not a live child. That’s why he took on board, 4,000 searchers, to search for remains.

During this time frame there was Tropical Storm Fay threatening Florida, entering the Gulf of Mexico.
During seven days in Florida, August 18–24, 2008, eleven people died and thousands of homes plus roads were damaged, from 60 mph (97 km/h) winds and rain waters up to 5 feet (1.5 m) deep,
August 19, TS Fay was in EVERGLADES CITY, Florida.

The Civil Lawsuit

Tim Miller refuses to cooperate with Casey Anthony. On December 20, 2011 well after making his decision, he IS suing Casey Anthony, yet he doesn’t show up in Orlando for his deposition because he whined, “Casey didn’t answer his questions.”
Casey Anthony’s attorney had this to say about Tim Miller.

“From my perspective, if you’re suing, who should have to answer questions first?” Anthony attorney Charles Greene asked WKMG-Channel 6. “The defendant or the person claiming they have some sort of legitimate case?”

The above mentioned matter has been recently resolved and Judge Munyon has decided Casey will answer two questions from a list of 15.

• Admit that you did not observe or hear George Anthony call 911 at any time to report that he or you had discovered that Caylee Marie Anthony had drowned in the swimming poll at your parents’ house on or about June 16, 2008.
• Admit that you were aware in September 2008 and October 2008 that EquuSearch was conducting searches for your daughter, Caylee.

Subsequently, Casey Anthony has denied both statements. Hopefully this will compel Tim Miller to follow through with his promise and answer questions posed to him by Anthony’s attorney Charles Greene.

As for $112,000, remember, Texas Equusearch acted as an agent of the State or Florida during the course of its business in Florida, receiving payment, equipment, support, and directions from Florida law enforcement agencies. There was also a time when Tim Miller was being considered as a material witness for the defense.

TES TIMELINE

On August 5, 2008, a Fox News crew filmed a search of The Wooded Area. The video shows no body or suspicious objects, and cameramen reported no suspicious odor.
On the Record with Greta Van Susteren (FOX News television broadcast Dec. 17, 2008)
available at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_gNJdZrgg. This video can no longer be found.

On August 11th, 12th and 13th,2008, Orange County law enforcement responded to calls from Roy Kronk, a county employee who claimed to have seen a suspicious bag in the Wooded Area. An Orange County Deputy Sheriff searched the spot and found nothing suspicious.

On August 18, 2008, an Orange County Deputy Sheriff responded to a call from one Keith Williams, who claimed to have found possible evidence in the Wooded Area. No body or remains were found.

On August 30, 2008, Texas EquuSearch (“TES”), a Texas 501© (3) corporation, arrived in Orlando from its headquarters in Dickinson, TX, to search for the missing child. TES set up its base of operations at the Holiday Inn at 5750 T.G. Blvd, Orlando,FL. Personnel from the Orange County Sheriff’s Office Criminal Investigation Division (“CID”) were present at the command center.

On August 31, 2008, TES and OCSO began their search for the missing child Caylee Marie Anthony. The Orange County Sheriff’s Office Critical Incident Management Team (“CIMT”) evaluated the organization of the TES search effort and supplied the searchers with bottled water. Id. Cmdr Matthew Irwin, Sgt John Allen, and Det. Cpl. Yuri Melich represented CID. Id at 7.

On September 1, 2008, TES and law enforcement continued their search of “areas of interest” provided by OCSO. Id at 3. Sgt. Allen and Det. Melich represent CID. Id at 7.

On September 2, 2008, TES and law enforcement continued their search. CIMT set up a tent at TES’s command center. Id at 3. Cmdr. Irwin, Sgt. Allen, and Det. Melich represented CID. Id at 7.

On September 3, 2008, then-Orange County Sheriff Kevin Beary provided TES with $5,000 of OCSO funds. See Appendix F. TES and law enforcement continued their search. See Appendix E at 3. Cmdr. Irwin, Sgt. Allen, and Det. Melich represented CID. Id at 7. Also on this date, Miss Anthony was released from custody following her August 29 arrest on economic charges.

On September 4, 2008, TES and law enforcement continued their search. Cmdr. Irwin, Sgt. Allen, Det. Melich, and Tanya DePalmo represented CID; a large team of CIMT and Agriculture personnel also participated in the joint search. Id at 7.

On September 5, 2008, TES and OCSO personnel continued their search. Id at3. Sgt. Allen and Det. Yurich represented CID. Id at 7.

On September 6, 2008, TES and OCSO personnel continued their search. Id at 3. Chief Ron Stucker, Det. Melich, and Investigator Kari Roderick represented CID. Id at 7.

On September 7, 2008, TES and OCSO continued their search. In the afternoon, investigative crime writer David Lohr posted to his website that he had searched The Wooded Area with TES, writing that “they [TES} were in the process of completing a thorough sweep of the area. “See Appendix G. That evening, TES called off their search for Caylee Marie Anthony. Amy L. Edwards, Heat, Bugs Don’t Deter Caylee Anthony Search Volunteers, Orlando Sentinel, Sept. 8, 2008, available at
http://www.orlandosentinel.com/com/community/news/wintergarden/orl-caylee0808sep08,0,311925.story. No remains were found.

In October of 2008, a former TES team leader informed Orange County Sergeant John Allen that, while searching with TES in September, she had searched the area where Caylee Anthony’s remains were ultimately found. See Appendix B at 2:25.

On October 14, 2008, Miss Anthony was indicted in the present case and taken into custody.

On November 8, 2008, TES began a new search. Orange County law Enforcement loaned TES a helicopter to use in the search. Updates from Search for Caylee Marie, WESH-2 Orlando, available at http://www.wesh.com/news/17929243/detail.html  TES searchers did not find Caylee Anthony.

On November 15, 2008, one Dominic Casey, a private investigator under contract to Miss Anthony’s parents, George and Cynthia Anthony, conducted a search of the Wooded Area accompanied by James Hoover, another private investigator. See Appendix H at 12.

On December 2, TES opened an Orlando chapter of Texas EquuSearch. Texas EquuSearch Opens Orlando Branch, CF News-13, available at http://www.chnews13.com/News/Local/2008/12/2equusearch_opens_orlando_branch.html

On December 11, 2008, law enforcement responded to a call from Roy Kronk stating that he had discovered a human skull at the edge of the Wooded Area, just off of Suburban Drive.  When law enforcement arrived on the scene, they found the skeletonized remains of a small child at the edge of the Wooded Area, just off of Suburban Drive. The State has since identified the remains as those of the child Caylee Marie Anthony.

~~~

MY PERSONAL NOTE:

I don’t dislike Tim Miller. I think his initial intentions were honorable but instead of him being mad at himself for not finding Caylee, I’d rather know that he’s pondering this and realizing that maybe, just maybe, her remains were not in that area when he searched. As for the money, it couldn’t happen to a nicer guy if he’d only say it….

“maybe the child Caylee Anthony wasn’t in The Wooded Area when I searched”

~~~
And then I’d say “Pay The Man!

Another frivolous lawsuit hot on the Anthony gravy train.

Today WFTV.com reported that Roy Kronk is now filing a defamation suit against Casey Anthony. His attorney Howard Marks claims that Anthony and/or those representing her suggested he might have been involved in Caylee Anthony’s death and hid her body.

Snipped:

Ex-meter reader who found Caylee’s remains suing Casey
ORLANDO, Fla. —
Former Orange County meter reader Roy Kronk is suing Casey Anthony.
Kronk, the man who found the remains of two-year-old Caylee Anthony, has filed a defamation claim against Anthony, according to his attorney Howard Marks.
Kronk’s suit contends that statements made by Anthony, or those representing her, suggesting that Kronk might have taken Anthony’s young daughter, killed and hidden her body are defamatory. Marks said Anthony’s statements that Caylee drowned means she was trying to deflect the blame to others.
Anthony is the only defendant named in the lawsuit.
Anthony is also being sued in civil court by Zenaida Gonzalez and by Texas EquuSearch

Although I agree that Kronk has a legitimate case against the National Enquirer, I think this latest filing is about as valid as those weapons he supposedly found in Kingsport, Tennessee in 1997.
Doesn’t Kronk’s attorney Howard Marks know the reason for an opening statement? Perhaps the definition would ease Mr. Kronk’s mind because an opening statement doesn’t have to be proven or believed. It just has to be possible. I understand his frustration but whether he likes it or not, the finder of the dead body of any missing person much less a child is always a person of interest. It goes with territory of being the hero. Like it or lump it. Just as no one believes Zenaida Gonzalez had anything to do with Caylee’s death, no one believes Roy Kronk did either. Fear not Roy Kronk. Word on the web is Casey got away with murder. Okaaaaayyy..

Opening Statement:
A contest for the imagination of the jury. Get into their world.

It’s a pity Mr. Kronk couldn’t keep his story straight from the beginning. It’s also a pity that OCSO failed to follow through on his reports in mid-August of 2008. I’m positive had the right thing happened then, no one would have raised an eyebrow but being that he was at the crime scene no less than 3 different times before December 11, 2008, I wouldn’t be surprised if his own attorney had his suspicions.

It matters not that the local media had already tried, convicted and sentenced Casey Anthony to death when his call on the morning of December 11th to law enforcement was finally answered, he should never have assumed her attorneys wouldn’t use any of his inconsistencies against him.

From the sound of Roy Kronk’s arrogance in his recorded interviews with law enforcement, he seems to perceive himself as a smart guy therefore he should know that this IS the name of the game for any good defense attorney who is trying to save the life of their client.
Roy Kronk was a gift to the defense team, not that it was his fault but certainly the circumstances of the finding of Caylee Anthony goes beyond the norm. Needless to say, Casey Anthony’s attorney Alan Greene will have a field day with deposing Roy Kronk.
I understand Kronk’s frustration with the Orange County Sheriff’s Office but this isn’t the way to make it right or make a living or as he vehemently claims in one of his interviews, “everybody has to eat“.

~~~

Luckily, I copied this report from ClickOrlando.com in June 2011 because the link is no longer working so here it is again just to keep it alive and kicking. I hate to see the facts of this case disappear. There were far too many hinky tidbits in this case.

Tidbit #3

Eleven years ago, in a 1997 report from Kingsport, Tennessee, Kronk called in a tip to investigators that they would find several stolen guns and other items in a wooded field but when officers searched the field they were unable to find any of the items Kronk had reported.
Incidentally, Jill Kerley lived only 2 hours from Kingsport, Tennessee. After reading this report, I think this validates Jill Kerley’s fear that Kronk was still intending to cause her harm. Jill Kerley told Jose Baez she had no idea that he was that close to her in 1997.
Considering this story is eerily similar to what Kronk did in Orlando, Florida, I can see where the Defense team or anyone would raise an eyebrow.

The banalities of life are juxtaposed against
wildly alive scenarios that play in our minds.

So I say to Roy Kronk,

good luck and better luck with the National Enquirer.

https://thejbmission.wordpress.com/2011/06/28/time-to-get-kronk-ed/

One, two, three…Three civil lawsuits have been filed against Casey Anthony!
• Zenaida Gonzalez
• Tim Miller
• Leonard Padilla

Casey Anthony lawsuits are like first husbands, you always have to throw the first one out. This is how I feel about Zenaida Gonzalez’s pending lawsuit. Considering Judge Lisa Munyon seems to be a no-non-sense judge, I think Morgan & Morgan are going to have to pull some fat furry rabbits out of their hats in order to get a 15K settlement off of Casey Anthony. The M&M’s are going to have to prove damages caused by Casey.
The World Awaits, unlike like the judges before her, Judge Munyon is not likely to automatically rule against Anthony in order to gain popularity.

Here Comes Tim Miller

On July 6, 2011, one day after Casey Anthony was acquitted, Tim Miller of Texas Equusearch appeared on CNN asking for the opinion of the public as to whether or not to file a lawsuit against Casey Anthony and/or Jose Baez for the return of $100,000 he says he spent searching for Caylee Anthony.
He cites Jose Baez’s opening statement, claiming Caylee was never missing as just cause and that Casey Anthony and Jose Baez should reimburse him for money spent and time wasted. Tim Miller has no proof as to when Casey Anthony admitted to Jose Baez that Caylee died in an accidental drowning nor will he ever know since this is client/attorney privilege.

Apparently the opinions of the disgruntled masses said yes. Tim Miller served Casey Anthony while she was still in jail even though FOX 26 legal analyst Chris Tritico thinks that because TES is a volunteer organization that they will not have a right to ask for their money back since they work for free.

I say, if Texas Equuasearch were an incorporated profiting business and Casey had paid him 100K to find her daughter, dead or alive, he should reimburse her because Roy Kronk did the job that Tim Miller couldn’t, even with 4200 searchers, 32 of them at the “hot spot” as he called it. Roy Kronk obviously didn’t need a 4 wheeler either.

Incidentally, Roy Kronk is suing Leonard Padilla for 15K in a civil suit. Apparently Leonard Padilla let his mouth run a bit too much on the Nancy Grace Show and tweeted some not so nice tweets on Twitter. Personally, I’d prefer for him to sue Nancy Grace since she profited from Leonard Padilla appearances, therefore giving him a platform to spew his speculation and mild mistruths about Roy Kronk.

Padilla, whose website lists him as “World Famous Bounty Hunter & Godfather of Bail,” had this to say to Roy Kronk.

“Truth is a defense to any defamation suit filed,” Padilla said in a brief phone call this afternoon. “In my experience and knowledge of Roy Kronk, he’s a [expletive] liar. I will give them time to add that into their lawsuit.”

Padilla, obviously looking for a free trip to Orlando during the lingering national media blitz post acquittal, is said to have asked Kronk and his attorney to pay for his and his attorney’s round-trip airfare to Orlando so he could be served with the legal paperwork directly.
Perhaps theJBMission should meet in Orlando to attend the trial.

On September 1, 2011, Howard Marks representing his client Roy Kronk filed a lawsuit against the National Enquirer for $15million.

Orange County, Fla., meter reader Roy Kronk, who found the remains of two-year-old homicide victim Caylee Anthony, is suing the tabloid and its parent company, American Media, for defamation, due to a story that that the paper reported about Kronk in a Dec. 7, 2009 report.

Maybe he’ll send us the airfare after he wins this one.
In all fairness, Roy Kronk, unlike Padilla did not directly insert himself into this alleged murder. Although he did admit in one of his several interviews with law enforcement that he was interested in finding Caylee Anthony by telling his co-workers, paraphrasing, “I bet she’s in those woods”, what came after was not his fault and the National Enquirer should not have ran this story titled, “Casey Anthony Says Meter Reader Killed Caylee”. I’d like to see how the National Enquirer proves this statement.

Here Comes Leonard Padilla


Snipped:
Now Padilla is suing Anthony and her attorney, Jose Baez, for the cost of those services. The suit asks for about 200-thousand dollars. Padilla claims Anthony and Baez accepted his help looking for Caylee, even when they knew the child was dead.

“We feel that we were conned,” Padilla told FOX40 on Monday.

“(Baez) mislead us, obviously, because in his opening statement at the trial, he said that the child had never been missing, which obviously concludes that he and Casey knew what had happened to the child, and where the child was dead, and buried.”

I say, Leonard Padilla was never asked by anyone to help in the Anthony case. He directly inserted himself in to the Anthony case as he enjoyed the media fanfare and did he really think that a murder suspect was going to be honest with him? He’s a bail bondsman, he should be used to being lied to. Again, what and when Baez learned of what happened to Caylee will never be revealed to him, client/attorney privilege.

In addition, if in a court of law, jurors are asked not to consider an opening statement as truth so why would the same court rule in favor of litigious media pigs who are using it as grounds for a lawsuit? Isn’t an opening statement for a defense lawyer simply a scenario in order to raise reasonable doubt? These opening statements are not arguable as they would be argued and proved during the trials. This is because an effective opening statement establishes the facts of the case and sets forth a legal theory and explanation for why the attorney’s client should prevail which is exactly what the opening statement was in the Anthony case, a theory.

As the rest of the world sits back in repugnance, litigious media pigs are still trying to make a pay day off of the death of an innocent child.  Enough already!

http://www.cfnews13.com/article/news/2011/december/353976/Casey-Anthony:-EquuSearch-allowed-to-join-motion-in-Zenaida-case

Finally!  After a remarkably good day for the Anthony defense team we’re learning via Tweets that Roy Kronk, the Meter Man and the Sole Searcher who officially found the remains of 2 ½ year old Caylee Marie Anthony may possibly be called today to testify.

Roy Kronk, a man with quite an array of dubious deeds will hopefully enlightened us bloggers as to why SAOs Linda Drane Burdick and Jeff Ashton suspiciously chose not to add him as a State witness unlike in other murder trials. Usually the person who finds the remains of the victim is often called to the stand if only to praise him or her as a hero but not Roy Kronk.

I believe had Casey Anthony not been the #1 suspect of murdering her daughter Caylee, Roy Kronk would have been a close second and perhaps a stronger person of interest (POI) in Caylee’s disappearance. Without a doubt any good homicide detective would have picked Roy Kronk’s story apart during interrogation, from the first 911 call on August 11, 2008 to December 11, 2008, the official day he found Caylee’s remains. 

Imagine Sgt. John Allen’s suspicion had he known this about Mr. Kronk.
Tidbit #1

Roy Kronk was arrested and charged with kidnapping in May 1992. Auspiciously, Beaufort County, SC did not believe his captive/accuser and dismissed charges. Roy Kronk later had this charge expunged from his record for the sake of his career in the Coast Guard.
Although the woman who accused him of kidnapping her is now deceased there are family members and an ex-husband who are more than willing to testify in her behalf IF need be.
Roy Kronk’s own father said that Roy Kronk rented a car and brought handcuffs, duct tape and a plastic gun to Beaufort, SC to force her to come back with him to Key West.

Kronk’s determination drove him over a thousand miles to Beaufort County, SC to kidnap XX. Fortunately, her fiancee came home on leave just in time to save her from Roy Kronk. Her fiancee, a Marine had the distinct pleasure of beating the shit out of Kronk.

Tidbit #2

Here’s ANOTHER person who tells a similar story about Roy Kronk’s propensity to abuse and take women against their will. Jill Kerley. She is his ex-wife who said in a recorded video that Roy Kronk had beat her on several occasions and used “100 mph duct tape” around her hands to keep her from calling for help. While in Maryville, he packed a bag put it in the car and told her they were going to the store and instead took her to Maryland where his father lived. There she was beat in front of Roy Kronk’s father so badly that she needed to go to the hospital.” She claims RK was capable of murder and she thought he tried to kill her by putting something in a glass of wine which she drank and later passed out for no apparent reason except for the tainted wine.

Tidbit #3

Eleven years ago, in a 1997 report from Kingsport, Tennessee, Kronk called in a tip to investigators that they would find several stolen guns and other items in a wooded field but when officers searched the field they were unable to find any of the items Kronk had reported.

Incidentally, Jill Kerley lived only 2 hours from Kingsport, Tennessee. After reading this report, I think this validates Jill Kerley’s fear that Kronk was still intending to cause her harm. Jill Kerley told Jose Baez she had no idea that he was that close to her in 1997.

Considering this story is eerily similar to what Kronk did in Orlando, Florida, I can see where the Defense team or anyone would raise an eyebrow.

Tidbit#4

Crystal Sparks, another ex-wife of Roy Kronk, who is not disgruntled in any way had lots to say about Roy Kronk. She said Roy’s father called her with the news that Roy was in jail on kidnapping and elaborated RK rented a car and brought handcuffs, duct tape and a plastic toy gun to retrieve his girlfriend who had fled back to Beaufort, South Carolina. Crystal Sparks has no reason to make this up.

CS spoke of Roy Kronk’s estranged family and particularly about his sister Susan. Susan was not a big fan of Roy’s. Susan also had deep concerns with her 2-3 year old daughter Jessica’s closeness to Roy. At a family gathering at Crystal’s home, she recalls Susan was adamant that Jessica not sit on Roy’s lap. For this reason Crystal had concerns about Roy being around young girls too.

It’s in this interview that Crystal opens the door to a phone call Roy made to their son Brandon Sparks. She recalls Brandon telling her about Roy calling Brandon in mid-November, approximately 2 weeks before Thanksgiving 2008 telling him, “you’re going to see me in the news. I’m gonna be a hero. I know where the little girl Caylee is and I’m going to get her,” he adds, “when the water went down.” According to Crystal Sparks, Susan had heard through her obsequious brother Roy that he had found the “little girl’s” body in middle November too. Crystal elaborated more on Roy’s obsession with Dungeon’s and Dragons, saying he likes anything in the fantasy realm and he lies a lot.

Tidbit #5

Here’s a guy who finds Caylee’s remains in August, calls LE on 3 different occasions and they can’t find Caylee’s remains while standing there with Kronk pointing to it. That doesn’t seem likely.

Unfortunately for the defense, the jurors will not know any of this about Roy Kronk. Judge Belvin Perry ruled in January that none of his prior bad acts can be brought into trial. Not a problem for the defense, there’s only one act that attorney Jose Baez wants to talk to Kronk about and that’s if he superciliously hid Caylee’s remains in hopes of reaping in a reward. Ironically, this is the reward money $50,000 Roy Kronk managed to blow when he called his supervisor instead of directly calling the Crimeline.
Poor Roy.

Snipped from WFTV dated December 15, 2008

ORANGE COUNTY, Fla. — It was a meter reader who found the remains that could be Caylee Anthony. He’s having a tough time and does not want to talk with the media and he is so disturbed by what he found his bosses have given him some time off of work.

When the Orange County meter reader discovered a skull in the woods not too far from Caylee Anthony’s home his supervisor called 911.

That phone call makes the meter reader ineligible for a $5,000 Crimeline reward. To collect the reward, you have to call Crimeline first before you call 911.

“You have to initiate a tip with Crimeline at 1-800-423-TIPS,” explained Detective Barb Bergin, Crimeline. “We don’t have enough money to pay rewards to everyone who calls 911.”

Bergin encourages people to call 911 if there is an emergency, but Crimeline calls are answered 24 hours a day.

“As calls come in, if it’s something that needs an emergency or needs law enforcement, we have people in place for that to happen immediately,” Bergin said.

Bounty hunter Leonard Padilla offered a $50,000 reward for Caylee’s body, but pulled the money when people complained searchers were tearing up their yards looking for remains.

“I don’t want to get sued,” Padilla said….

 

 

SUBURBAN DRIVE

 

While I’m focusing on the only undisputable fact of this case, Suburban Drive, I’m reminded of another article I wrote November 15, 2010 titled “Close But No Caylee”.  In that article I attempted to list the many known players who actually searched this corner of Suburban and Hopespring Drive who failed to find a body.

There were cadaver dogs, trained LE with K-9s, there were 32 Texas Equaasearch volunteers, and of course there was Roy Kronk who claims he found Caylee’s remains on August 11th/2008 which was disproved by Sgt Richard Cain.

Knowing this information, I think there’s a good possibility that Casey Anthony was not the one who placed little Caylee’s body in this area now called “Area A”.

Dominic Casey, the private investigator hired by Cindy and George Anthony and his camera man fellow PI, Jim Hoover video.

A month ago Snoop, an Orlando resident and tenacious seeker of the truth here at theJBMission volunteered to revisit Suburban Drive in order to take photographs and resolve the myths reported by the local media. 

This is what Snoop says about Area A, the burial site where Caylee’s remains were found.

It’s important to know Tropical Storm Fay did not reach Central Fl until Aug. 20th/2008.

It’s important to know Florida was in a long drought before Tropical storm Fay.

It’s important to know the area where the remains were found received 6-11 inches of rain.

It’s important to know in a nearby area where there were 22 inches of rain that all flooding had receded by September.

It’s important to know Suburban Drive could not possibly hold the amount of water as reported.  The amount of rain there was 6 inches at best.  Perhaps east toward the school would hold 6-11 inches but not in Area A where the remains were found.

It’s important to know it was dry on August 11th, the first time Roy Kronk is said to have seen something white in the “water” that looked like a skull.

It’s important to know the distance from the tree line to Area A is 6 feet which means if Officer Richard Cain just peered in and there was a visible skull as Roy Kronk claimed he would have seen it. 

It’s important to know that Cain walked in, poked around a bag of leaves and nothing was there. There is no way Cain could have not seen what Kronk saw.

It’s important to know this is not a jungle or Amazon. You don’t need a whacker to get through.

It’s important to know that in Dominick Casey’s video there was a television and a blanket that was photographed that is approximately 15 feet from Area A.  Dominick Casey was surely at some point in Area A or beyond it. 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Expectantly, with Jim Hoover and Dominick Casey setting the stage, the Anthony defense team is prepared to expose the truth of the mysterious finding of Caylee Marie Anthony.

Here are the Questions I’d Like to Ask Roy Kronk:

1. When you first discovered the suspicious bag on Suburban, what did you think when LE dismissed your finding?

2. After 3 consecutive days of reporting the suspicious bag with no results, did you think you were wrong?

3. Did you know Tim Miller searched this area Sept. 3, 2008?

4. If you would have known, would you have gone to the area to point it out to them?

5. What made you go back December 11, 2008?

6. Did you contact Leonard Padilla at any time during November 2008 for the possibility of getting the reward?

7. Did the reward ever cross your mind?

~~~~~~~~~

Just for starters…

Close But No Caylee

https://thejbmission.wordpress.com/2010/11/15/close-but-no-caylee/

Oh yes, it was quick, it was concise and it was totally boring unless, of course you entertained yourself by focusing on Casey Anthony’s daily attire or zooming in on her used tissues to see if they were wet or dry.  Other than that, it was an overall repeat of the daily news coverage beginning when Caylee Anthony was first reported missing.  Incidentally, I’m now convinced who was leaking what to the press as I noted the State presented their case accordingly.

After today’s mundane Grand Finale, ending on the unessential testimony of a tattoo artist  Bobbie Williams, I’m left wondering how the State of Florida managed to condense over 20,000 pages of documents into 18 days of testimony. Interrupted testimony, I may add.  Was Judge Perry’s “get a move on” attitude really a negative factor in the entire courtroom proceeding?  In seeking truth and justice, perhaps State Attorney Linda Drane Burdick, could have done a better job in a less restrictive atmosphere.

After closely following this case for the past 895 days I feel cheated.  I’m sure websites such as Websleuths and Scared Monkey feel cheated as well.   Here at the JB Mission, we probed and prodded documents, photographs, discussed and dissected for hours and days on end and today I ask the State of Florida “Is that all there is?”

Quite frankly I was expecting a lot more.  Perhaps it was because  the media scammed us all into thinking there truly was a smoking gun that pointed only to Casey Anthony but it ain’t over yet. 

Soon we’ll finally hear from Casey Anthony’s defense team.

It’s official!  We will get “Kronked”  ::doing a little dance::

Roy Kronk has been subpoenaed as a witness for Casey Anthony’s defense, his attorney told WESH 2 News.

I’d like to predict what the defense team will do with him but I think I’ll sit back and enjoy, that’s if Jose Baez is allowed to ask the tough questions.  Getting pass Judge Perry’s propensity to sustain objections from the prosecution isn’t an easy task. 

Before I get over excited WESH reminded me that in January, Judge Perry ruled that the defense could not introduce any evidence on Kronk’s prior bad acts.  Everything we learned through depositions that Kronk had a possible history of inappropriate behavior with young girls, a history of restraining and holding women against their will and in some cases using duct tape to do so will not be allowed.  This begs the question, why are there so many of Kronk’s friends, family and foes on the defense’s witness list, if they will not be called? 

I’m assuming Roy Kronk will be allowed to answer some questions pertaining to his 3 calls to law enforcement in mid-August 2008 when he reported a suspicious bag. 

We shall see. 

Onward and forward till when the Defense of Casey Anthony begins. 

See you there!

On December 24th WFTV reported that Casey Anthony’s defense team had missed their deadline to pursue Roy Kronk the Lone Hero who found Caylee Anthony’s remains as a possible suspect.

It’s been reported that because Jose Baez failed to meet the deadline, Roy Kronk is a free man or so surmised WFTV-Channel 9 in speculating that Anthony’s attorneys have dropped plans to suggest that Roy Kronk is a suspect in the murder of Caylee Anthony.

Fact or fiction? Perhaps by the next hearing on January 3, 2011 we’ll have this information coming straight from Mr. Baez himself. As an interested blogger participating in the Casey Anthony saga, I have minimal control in judicial matters of this case or at least I would hope but MAYBE not.
Judge Strickland was recused from this case for fraternizing with Marinade Dave (a obsequious blogger who was awarded The Orbbie from the Orlando Sentinel) and now State Prosecutor Jeff Ashton has referred to bloggers in his recent motion to Judge Perry. Bloggers have suddenly become part of the vocabulary used not only in judicial motions but verbally mentioned in a Court of Law involving the accused, Casey Anthony who is standing in court literally fighting for her life.

I, JBMission, only have an opinion when it comes to Roy Kronk and what makes him a viable suspect or participant in Caylee Anthony’s murder or cover-up.

In my opinion, if the OCSO didn’t have Casey Anthony’s mistruths and deceptions on record, without a doubt the State Attorney’s Office would have picked Roy Kronk’s story apart from the day he officially found Caylee on December 11, 2008 retracing his steps to his first 911 call on August 11, 2008 and likely would have made him a strong Person of Interest considering these several factors.

Factor #1. Roy Kronk was arrested and charged with kidnapping in May 1992. Auspiciously, Beaufort County, SC did not believe his captive/accuser and dismissed charges. Roy Kronk later had this charge expunged from his record for the sake of his career in the Coast Guard.
Although the woman who accused him of kidnapping her is now deceased there are family members and an ex-husband who are more than willing to testify in her behalf IF need be.
Roy Kronk’s own father said that Roy Kronk rented a car and brought handcuffs, duct tape and a plastic gun to Beaufort, SC to force her to come back with him to Key West.
Kronk’s determination drove him over a thousand miles to Beaufort County, SC to kidnap XX. Fortunately, her fiancee came home on leave just in time to save her from Roy Kronk. Her fiancee, a Marine had the distinct pleasure of beating the shit out of Kronk.

Factor #2. Here’s ANOTHER person who tells a similar story about Roy Kronk’s propensity to abuse and take women against their will. Jill Kerley. She is his ex-wife who said in a recorded video that Roy Kronk had beat her on several occasions and used “100 mph duct tape” around her hands to keep her from calling for help. While in Maryville, he packed a bag put it in the car and told her they were going to the store and instead took her to Maryland where his father lived. There she was beat in front of Roy Kronk’s father so badly that she needed to go to the hospital.” She claims RK was capable of murder and she thought he tried to kill her by putting something in a glass of wine which she drank and later passed out for no apparent reason except for the tainted wine.
When Baez asked Jill Kerley what she thought when she heard that Kronk was the person who found Caylee’s remains, her first thought was “he did it. He murdered Caylee or had something to do with it.”
It was interesting to learn that RK was fanatically obsessed with the fantasy video game “Dungeons and Dragons”. When asked by the investigator if Kronk can be believed, JK said, “He wouldn’t know the truth if it was slapped upside his head.”

Jill Kerley interview

Factor #3. Eleven years ago, in a 1997 report from Kingsport, Tennessee, Kronk called in a tip to investigators that they would find several stolen guns and other items in a wooded field but when officers searched the field they were unable to find any of the items Kronk had reported.
Incidentally, Jill Kerley lived only 2 hours from Kingsport, Tennessee. After reading this report, I think this validates Jill Kerley’s fear that Kronk was still intending to cause her harm. Jill Kerley told Jose Baez she had no idea that he was that close to her in 1997.

Considering this story is eerily similar to what Kronk did in Orlando, Florida, I can see where the Defense team or anyone would raise an eyebrow.

Factor #4. Crystal Sparks, another ex-wife of Roy Kronk, who is not disgruntled in any way had lots to say about Roy Kronk. She said Roy’s father called her with the news that Roy was in jail on kidnapping and elaborated RK rented a car and brought handcuffs, duct tape and a plastic toy gun to retrieve his girlfriend who had fled back to Beaufort, South Carolina. Crystal Sparks has no reason to make this up.
CS spoke of Roy Kronk’s estranged family and particularly about his sister Susan. Susan was not a big fan of Roy’s. Susan also had deep concerns with her 2-3 year old daughter Jessica’s closeness to Roy. At a family gathering at Crystal’s home, she recalls Susan was adamant that Jessica not sit on Roy’s lap. For this reason Crystal had concerns about Roy being around young girls too.
It’s in this interview that Crystal opens the door to a phone call Roy made to their son Brandon Sparks. She recalls Brandon telling her about Roy calling Brandon in mid-November, approximately 2 weeks before Thanksgiving 2008 telling him, “you’re going to see me in the news. I’m gonna be a hero. I know where the little girl Caylee is and I’m going to get her,” he adds, “when the water went down.” According to Crystal Sparks, Susan had heard through her obsequious brother Roy that he had found the “little girl’s” body in middle November too. Crystal elaborated more on Roy’s obsession with Dungeon’s and Dragons, saying he likes anything in the fantasy realm and he lies a lot.

Crystal Sparks interview

Factor #5
Here’s a guy who finds Caylee’s remains in August, calls LE on 3 different occasions and they can’t find Caylee’s remains while standing there with Kronk pointing to it. That doesn’t seem likely.

Factor #5 is the most valuable for the Defense. If the Defense believes in LE, doesn’t that seem odd that someone would find her in August and NOT in September, October or November?
I don’t think Baez has much of a choice when it comes to Roy Kronk.

WISHING EVERYONE A VERY HAPPY & PROPEROUS NEW YEAR!!

FINALLY 2011 IS HERE!

from theJBMission

Let’s take a look..
Dominic Casey
“You can call me crazy,” says Dominic, who has been a private investigator for 20 years. “Everyone is calling me crazy. I get death threats on a daily basis.”
Dominic Casey, the Anthony family private investigator and one time bodyguard for Casey Anthony has never wavered in his belief 2yo Caylee Anthony was alive and worked hundreds of hours trying to find her.
However in mid-November almost a month before Caylee’s remains were found, he searched an area on Suburban Drive, 14 houses away from the Anthony home. Some people speculated that he did find her and failed to report it. Since then he has vehemently denied finding Caylee’s remains before she was officially found on December 11, 2008. Another PI Jim Hoover working for the Anthony’s tagged along in the search.
It was later rumored in the media that it was Casey Anthony’s attorney Jose Baez who had actually sent Dominic Casey to this area and was told to call him first if he found Caylee’s remains.
Dominic Casey answered the rumor with this statement to the media:

“Had I the misfortune of stumbling across any remains the first thing I would have done is, I would have prayed, the second thing I would have done is stayed at the location and called 911.”

Video:

PI Jim Hoover

On November 15, 2008, while Dominic Casey was poking and prodding the dense woods of 8905 Suburban Drive with a stick in one hand and a cell phone in the other, Jim Hoover video taped the entire ordeal. On the other end of the cell phone was Psychic Ginnette Maticia Lucas who had a vivid dream the night before and had described a wooded area to Dominic.
Dominic Casey says this was the first and only time he had ever looked for a deceased Caylee. In my opinion, Ginnette Lucas’s description matched the area where childhood friend Kio Cruz claimed she and Casey Anthony used to hang out in their early teens. This explains why Dominic Casey hurriedly went to this particular area. As we know through documents, he was seeking help through psychics to find Caylee.
It is also a known fact that PI Jim Hoover later tried to sell footage of this video tape to various media outlets. If in fact, Caylee’s remains were found, no doubt Jim Hoover would have been the first to report their finding. As noted in the video above, and later validated by Dominic Casey, they were close, but no Caylee.

Keith Williams

On August 18, 2008, Keith Williams who also had a psychic’s hunch found himself searching a similar area of Suburban Drive. He politely knocked on the door of George and Cindy Anthony to show them what he had found in an empty lot just down the street from their home. He had found a Father’s Day balloon, a few pieces of children’s clothing, stuffed animals and a sandal. After the Anthony family showed no interest in these items, he later called law enforcement and a police report was made. Ironically Officer Richard Cain was the responding officer to both Keith Williams and Roy Kronk 911 calls in mid-August. Keith was close, but no Caylee.

Searcher: Caylee’s Body Not In Woods
Defense Team Claims Body Dumped After Jailing POSTED: Monday, November 23, 2009
UPDATED: 11:27 pm EST November 23,2009

One of the volunteers, Laura Buchanan, of New Jersey, submitted a sworn statement that may provide ammunition for Casey Anthony’s defense.
In the statement, Buchanan wrote:

“On Sept. 3, 2008 … I personally searched near the privacy fence and worked my way towards, and then the spot, where the body was found.
I did not notice anything unusual. I did not notice a strange smell. I noticed no buzzards, nor unusual animal or insect activity.
It is my opinion that the remains of Caylee Anthony were not there during the time of our search.”

Signed statement:
http://www.docstoc.com/docs/32326505/Casey-Anthony-Defense-team-Laura-Buchanan-signed-statement

Apparently, Laura Buchanan has a document to prove her claim however another TES searcher who was assigned with LB said they were on the Blanchard Park search team and not Suburban Drive. According to Lela Radojevic, Laura Buchanan was with her the entire day and did not leave when asked by Kathi Belich of WFTV.
Since this story broke, State investigators are intensely trying to dismiss her claim calling her records a fabrication.
Putting all the negative press aside, Defense attorney Cheney Mason is said to have a legitimate copy of it in the Equusearch records that proves she is telling the truth.
Considering no one knows for sure as of yet and I have no reason to believe she’s a liar, I’ll add her to the list. Close but no Caylee, which brings me to Joe Jordan.

Joe Jordan

Joe Jordan, another TES searcher made the following statement to Casey Anthony’s Defense team.

a. On September 1, 2008, I was a volunteer member for Texas Equu Search (TES).

b. On September 1, 2008, I and a group of approximately 30 TES volunteers went to the area of Suburban and Hope Springs Streets in Orlando, Florida. We went to that area to search for the remains of Caylee Anthony.

c. Although I was in the area with over 30 people, only five to six volunteers and I searched the area by the stockade fence along the south side of Suburban Street near Hope Springs Street. Among the five to six volunteers with me were Danny Ibison and his dog and a Panama City Sheriff’s Deputy with one of his two dogs.

d. All of the information concerning the search was reduced to writings which were placed on specific forms provided to me by TES. I am a very detailed person and I kept a detailed list of the items I saw and there (sic) location which I believed were important to a missing person investigation. All of this information was provided to TES.

The very same day that he signed this statement, Joe Jordan called the OCSO and spoke to Cpl Eric Edwards. He told Cpl Edwards that he was interviewed by a defense investigator that morning and had surreptitiously recorded the interview which is in violation of Florida Law. Since it was illegally recorded, SAO Drane Burdick couldn’t listen to it.

Subsequently, she was present for an interview with Jordan and states in the motion that

Based upon representations made during the course of that interview, the illegally recorded statement may materially conflict with the subsequent interview.

The OCSO and the defense team both refused to press charges against Jordan and Drane Burdick asks the court to not allow it to be released as it was illegally obtained.

It sounds to me as though Mr. Jordan tried to do the right thing for himself and went about it in the wrong way. Did he have a concern that somehow. the interviewer phrased questions in such a way as to paint his actions differently than they really were? Anyway, this leaves Mr. Jordan pretty much out of the equation to support the defense motion!

Source:
http://sprocket-trials.blogspot.com/2009/12/casey-anthony-state-files-motions.html

For the purpose of this article, I’m adding Joe Jordan to the list. Joe Jordan was close but no Caylee.

Deputy Jason Forgey

After Caylee Anthony’s remains were found December 11th on the west side of Suburban Drive, it was imperative for Det. Yuri Melich to interview Deputy Jason Forgey, a cadaver dog handler for OCSO.

http://flawebhosting.net/docdump021809/18740223.pdf
pulled from pg 12 of 18

Detective Yuri Melich wrote this report.

Deputy Jason Forgey and his cadaver dog had checked the east end of Suburban Drive in July so it was presumed that this area was also checked. This tip was cleared based on this. As a note, Deputy Forgey responded to the area where the body was found after its discovery and I asked if he had ever deployed his cadaver dog there. He said he had not, and they had focused their efforts to the east end of Suburban Drive and the area of the school, Corporal Edwards later interviewed Detective Jerald White regarding clearing this tip.

This was a CYA maneuver by LE. It seems this area was ruled out because it was “presumed” it was cleared or at least, that’s what they want the general public to believe. I’m not one who does. Look what happened to Officer Richard Cain. He was fired for not finding Caylee so Deputy Forgey certainly knew what to say. “No, he didn’t clear the west side of Suburban Drive.” That’s his story and he’s sticking to it. It’s my opinion, that only an inept investigator would check one side of the street and not the other so I believe he did and came up empty handed. No Caylee.

Sgt. Richard Cain

When Sgt. Richard Cain responded to one of three calls Roy Kronk made to LE in August 08, he didn’t see anything even though he was only 6 feet away according to Kronk. Cain was fired after the discovery of Caylee Anthony’s remains on December 11, 2008 for not following through.
Two of Roy Kronk’s buddies who were with him in at the crime scene in August 08, David Deen and Chris Gibson didn’t see anything either. No Caylee.

32 Texas Equusearch Volunteers

Thirty-two TES volunteers who searched this area of Suburban Drive in early September 2008, will all attest to one thing. They searched and didn’t find Caylee. The excuse will be water that inundated the area left by Hurricane Fay. Tim Miller did lose a 4-wheeler while attempting the search. He also said this was a “hot spot” which makes me wonder why it was never searched again by anyone, local law enforcement or the FBI.

Roy Kronk

Roy Kronk is the meter reader who officially found the remains of Caylee Anthony on December 11, 2008. Kronk called law enforcement with tips in August 08 when he claimed he saw a partially submerged bag in the same area where the remains were found.
Two LE officers responded to Roy Kronk’s tips in August. One was Sgt Richard Cain and later, a female officer who only talked with Roy Kronk. She left because she figured Cain has already cleared the area and found nothing.
Roy Kronk stands alone.

Questions I’d Like to Ask Roy Kronk:

1. When you first discovered the suspicious bag on Suburban, what did you think when LE dismissed your finding?
2. After 3 consecutive days of reporting the suspicious bag with no results, did you think you were wrong?
3. Did you know Tim Miller searched this area Sept. 3, 2008?
4. If you would have known, would you have gone to the area to point it out to them?
5. What made you go back December 11, 2008?
6. Did you contact Leonard Padilla at any time during November 2008 for the possibility of getting the reward?
7. Did the reward ever cross your mind?

Closing:
It should be an embarrassment to LE that Caylee wasn’t found in August 2008 if in fact she was there. So much information and forensics were lost. I can’t believe how lucky this was for Casey, Hurricane Fay, the lazy police officer, a corpse of a snake and a few other coincidences that have worked in her favor, forensically speaking of course. But maybe she isn’t lucky at all. Her beautiful daughter is dead, presumed murdered, she’s facing the death penalty and perhaps Caylee’s precious little body wasn’t there on Suburban Drive from mid-June 2008 as it is speculated by so many. Just maybe there’s something else going on in this case that no one saw coming.

What we’ve learned about Roy Kronk besides being a meter reader who found the decomposed remains of Caylee Anthony is that he’s not exactly a nice guy according to his 3 ex-wives. Roy Kronk, ex-meter reader now, is said to have been very abusive to all three of his ex-wives and used duct tape on at least one, Jill Kerley.
Why Kronk, you may ask. Kronk has a history of inappropriate behavior with young girls, history of abusing, restraining and holding women against their will; his use of duct tape to restrain women and his knowledge of the exact location of Caylee’s remains.
Brandon, Roy’s son dropped the biggest whammy on Kronk. Brandon told his mother that Kronk told him two weeks before Thanksgiving and one month before making what is known as his fourth visit to the scene where Caylee’s decomposed body was found that “he was going to be a hero on TV” saying to his son “I know where Caylee is and I’m going to go get her.” Begging the question, why the wait?

In November 2009, Mort Smith, one of Casey Anthony’s investigators taped an interview with ex-wife, Jill Kerley. Here is a segment of the interview that was released to the media.

Mort Smith: “When you learned Roy had found Caylee’s remains what went through your mind?”
Jill Kerley: “That he had done it”
Mort Smith: “Meaning?”
Jill Kerley: “He probably was the one who murdered Caylee Anthony or had something to do with it.”
Jill Kerly went on to say; “It was abusive — mentally and physically, he beat me up in front of his dad and I had to go the hospital. “The more I think about it, the more my gut tells me he had something to do with it,” Kerley said, “He, [Kronk], duct taped my hands one time.”
Jill Kerley: “He said it was 100 mph duct tape”
Mort Smith: “And how often did he duct tape you?”
Jill Kerley: “On two occasions.”

Crystal Sparks (Brandon’s mother) another ex-wife told Mort Smith. “I think there’s a lot of concern for Roy being around young girls.”
Casey’s defense team said, “they have evidence Kronk has a possible history of inappropriate behavior with young girls.
April Applegate Hensley who was 11 at the time her mother lived with Kronk has said he came into her bedroom to watch her undress and made her feel uneasy, in her interview with the investigators.

According to Local 6, this isn’t Kronk’s first attempt at reporting unfound evidence. Just like he tried to point out the body of Caylee in August 08′ to no avail, the same happened in Tennessee.

UPDATED: 12:25 pm EDT July 30, 2010

http://www.clickorlando.com/news/24443621/detail.html
Heres a snippet..
During Friday’s depositions, Casey Anthony’s attorneys will likely question the former meter reader about the rainy day in 2008 when he found Caylee’s body.
The defense is also likely to question him about the day four months earlier when he repeatedly called authorities to the same area to report a suspicious item he found there. A deputy showed up, but was unable to find anything unusual.
Now, Local 6 has learned that 11 years earlier Kronk called authorities to another wooded area in Tennessee, but that once again officers who responded to that scene were unable to find what Kronk had been describing.
According to a 1997 report from Kingsport, Tenn., Kronk told investigators they would find several stolen guns and other stolen items in a wooded field. But when officers searched the field, they were unable to find any of the items Kronk was talking about.
According to sources, Casey Anthony’s defense team found it odd that Kronk would call police twice to two different wooded areas where nothing was found.
Sources said the defense team may use the Tennessee police report to challenge Kronk’s credibility and raise reasonable doubt.
Anthony’s lawyers have already suggested that Kronk may have been responsible for the toddler’s disappearance, even though police and prosecutors have not turned up any evidence of that.

Early on Mr. Kronk has vehemently denied these ex-wife allegations against him and is confident that he will be vindicated. When reporters asked Kronk’s attorney David Evans what he thought, he explained that “they were being untruthful”, when asked why, “they just wanted their 15-minutes of fame.”

As usual at theJBmission.com, I find it odd that EVERYONE who maligns Roy Kronk is a nefarious and self-serving individual. What’s so hard about admitting Roy Kronk is an immoral guy who found a murdered child under “out of the ordinary” circumstances? It is what it is. Perhaps OCSO will have to be held accountable for their error in August 08.

I’m not in total disagreement with yesterday’s ruling. In my opinion, Jose Baez went through the motions of trying to retrieve TES information for a reason. He’ll use this fact during trial, a typical defense tragedy.
.
Actually, I don’t think Baez needs it anyway. Joe Jordan says he searched Area A where Caylee’s remains were eventually found. He claims there was nothing there in early September when he searched. Laura Buchanan may have gone to Suburban Drive and I believe she did. Many people went to look on their own without TES or any other organization. Look at Roy Kronk. He went alone, 4 times that we know of. So people were very interested in finding little Caylee. I think this is true.
32 other searchers will agree with Joe Jordan and Laura Buchanan. No remains found in September 2008. Nope, nope, nope.
If the prosecution wants to use the excuse of “high water” for not finding Caylee, than that’s fine. But to a juror, this excuse could raise reasonable doubt. Begging the question, was baby Caylee there all along? Roy Kronk will say yes, but unfortunately, his claim can not be proven because Officer Richard Cain and other LE were unable to find her on 3 different occasions in middle August 2008. Investigating officers have excuses too. The prosecution will admit Officer Cain was fired. It will be explained why in court. It seems the prosecution has a lot of excuses. “Was Caylee there all along?” hmm..Thought provoking.
I’m sitting on pins and needles waiting for inmate Casey Anthony’s jailhouse letters to inmate Robyn Adams who is facing 10 years on a drug charge, along with her husband who happens to be an X-cop from a nearby county. Of course these letters were allowed by a helpful jailhouse guard. When I heard about this, I laughed out loud. This tragic saga wouldn’t be complete without the correspondence letters from a “jailhouse snitch.”
Without having read any of the letters, I’ll go out on a limb and state, these letters will not reveal much. From what’s been hinted so far, they contain lots of “Cindy & George” bashing. Where will they fit in the picture, I do not know. My question, “What does this have to do with the price of oranges?”
In any case, it’ll be good reading and I suspect it’ll be the topic of many discussions and more frivolous speculation. The blogs will be booming with hecklers and skeptics.
Carpe Diem!
