- 2. Caylee Anthony was officially ID’d this afternoon by the medical examiner.
UPDATE I: Utility Worker Roy Kronk’s attorney States his Client has no Connection to Caylee/Casey Anthony Case
In a prepared statement this afternoon at a press conference in Florida, Attorney David Evans said that his client, Roy Kronk, “has no connection to this case or to the Anthony family.” He also said that those that have speculated that his client has a connection could not be more wrong.
Roy Kronk said Friday that he found the remains while working near the home of Caylee’s grandparents.
He says he also had notified authorities in August that he had “spotted something suspicious – a bag” in the same area.
He declined to elaborate further, saying only that he continues to cooperate with the investigation.
Kronk’s attorney, David Evans, said he came forward to deter the media from pursuing his co-workers. Evans said Kronk would make no further statements.
Evans called Kronk a “concerned citizen” with no other connection to the case.
The meter reader came forward Friday afternoon. Roy Kronk, 46, read a short statement confirming he’d called authorities three times before the remains were discovered.
“I have been and will continue to cooperate fully with the ongoing investigation with the Sheriff’s Office and the FBI,” said Kronk. “I respectfully decline to get into details about what I saw at the crime scene.”
Kronk refused to answer questions and said he would not grant any interviews.
“His participation in this matter is strictly as a concerned citizen with a sharp eye and good instincts and perseverance. He has no connection whatsoever to this case. He has no connection to the Anthony family… Those who have speculated to the contrary could not be more wrong,” said David Evans, Kronk’s lawyer.
