I received this email this afternoon from Dave Earl, attorney for Roy Kronk:
MARK NEJAME REWARDS ROY KRONK $5,000 FOR DISCOVERING CAYLEE
Roy Kronk is very appreciative to Mark NeJame for his generous gift of $5,000. Apparently, Mr. NeJame received $5,000 for his earlier involvement in the case and has decided that since Roy did find Caylee, the money should appropriately go to him. Roy is very thankful that Mark NeJame has recognized his singular efforts in finding Caylee and hopes that this sends a message to others that kindness does exist
for people who do the right thing in life.
Attorney for Roy Kronk
In the interest of disclosure, Mark Nejame is a personal friend and colleague of mine and my husband’s.
We did not start out that way, however.
I was like most, “how could you represent those people, blah blah, Don’t you know, blah blah ?..” Without going into specifics , he did represent them and very well and in my opinion was the best thing going for them and they blew it. We have been on opposite sides of a few issues, but I ended up being right on every one of them and now we are buds cause that’s how I roll.
Mark is an extremely bright attorney and a devoted family man; He beamed when he spoke of his children and his wife. He has old-style European charm and sincere confidence rarely found in a man with his beginnings. He is self-made, and self-aware.
When Mark discussed the possibility of giving Mr. Kronk this award a few weeks ago, I emailed him with the red alert code and dialed the bat phone. Not so fast, let’s chat first. Keep in mind, at that time, Jim Hoover had not come forward and this was looking like a very different scenario altogether. I was suspect of Kronk and I did not want to see Mark do something that might come back to him. We were scheduled to chat a few times in last 2 weeks but our schedules keep conflicting. Which, I am thankful for, because I would have attempted to talk Mark out of his generous deed, he would have politely told me:
What ev uh, I do what I want. Don’t you have someone else’s house to haunt at this hour? Are you staying out of trouble this week?
So, to my friend Mark, I say, as I am the bigger person, literally and figuratively playin’ of course he is taller in person, does not wear a toupee or color his hair or eyebrows or whatever other crap was said about him in the beginning:
You were right, and I was wrong. I am again moved by your compassion, genorosity and commitment to stand for what’s right. That being said, if you take a call from Dominic Casey, we are breaking up. A definite boundry issue for me.
Congratulations to Mr. Kronk.
Best of luck to Dom Casey explaining who was on the phone.
