Roy Kronk Testifies in Casey Anthony Murder Trial
Roy Kronk: Meter Reader Who Found Caylee Anthony's Remains Questioned
Roy Kronk, the man who found the remains of Caylee Anthony, has taken the witness stand in the Casey Anthony murder trial.
The defense is arguing that Roy Kronk found Caylee Anthony's body months before he led police to the remains on December 11, 2008. Defense attorney Jose Baez argues that Kronk found Caylee Anthony's body and hid it, hoping to cash in on a reward later. Months later, he moved the remains back into the woods, duct taping the girl's mandible back into place on her skull.
Shifting Suspicion to Roy Kronk
With this tactic, the defense is hoping to take the duct tape out of the equation as a weapon. The prosecution asserts that Casey Anthony subdued her daughter with chloroform, then duct-taped her nose and mouth shut, which effectively makes duct tape the murder weapon.
Listening to the trial, it doesn't sound like the Roy Kronk testimony is going according to the defense's plan. The public is split in its opinion of Kronk: to some the meter reader is a sketchy guy with something to hide, while others are tweeting that he's making defense attorney Cheney Mason look foolish.
