“ORLANDO, Fla. — The man who stumbled upon Caylee Anthony’s remains is suing Casey Anthony for defamation.
In a six-page lawsuit filed Wednesday, an attorney for Roy Kronk says Anthony and her attorneys made numerous allegations that cast Kronk in a negative light.
Attorney Howard S. Marks writes that the statements were “too numerous to recite,” but appeared in “every media format imaginable” around the globe.
The lawsuit alleges that Anthony and her defense inferred on numerous occasions that the former meter reader had something to do with Caylee’s disappearance other than just finding the remains. Attorneys accused Kronk of killing Caylee and taking part in placing her remains, the lawsuit says.
Kronk’s attorney also takes issue with statements made by Anthony’s criminal defense team that Kronk is a “morally bankrupt” individual.”
Baez also said Kronk took Caylee’s remains and hid them for months.
Under his bed maybe? Or maybe he drove them around in the trunk of his car?
“If Casey Anthony’s story is true that Caylee Anthony drowned in the family swimming pool on June 16, 2008, then she knew that the statements she authorized and permitted her agents to publish were false. In an attempt to find someone other than herself to blame for the tragic death of her child, Casey Anthony authorized and permitted her attorneys, as her agents, to make false and malicious statements against Kronk, and to portray him as the murderer of her child. Casey Anthony, through her attorneys, refused to retract the statements about Kronk, and when confronted with whether she was going to withdraw the defamatory statements, Casey Anthony, through her attorneys, responded the statements were not false, and that the statements would stand,” the lawsuit reads.
The lawsuit says that as a result of the allegations, Kronk’s reputation was tarnished and he was humiliated and embarrassed.
Kronk is suing for damages in excess of $15,000.”
I’m not certain why only $15,000. Maybe because Kronk just wants Casey to be held responsible for accusing innocent people of everything she did to Caylee.
Sure, Roy Kronk is creepy, but he is not the murderer of Caylee and he certainly did not swipe her body from the swamp where her mother threw her.
