Casey’s Lawyers Ask Judge to Dismiss Claims

As Casey Anthony’s bankruptcy proceedings enter their 10th month (she filed in January), she asked a judge Thursday to dismiss Roy Kronk and Zenaida Gonzalez’s claims in her bankruptcy case, saying they are without merit.  Both Zenaida Gonzaelz and Roy Kronk claim Anthony defamed them and they should be considered creditors in the bankruptcy case.  Anthony asked in the dual motions for the “fresh start” she is promised by law.

“This travesty has gone on long enough,” Anthony’s lawyers argue in both new motions, “Ms. Anthony implores the Court to end this matter so she can begin the fresh start she is promised by the law.”

Casey Anthony told detectives during a 2008 investigation that a woman named Zenaida Fernandez Gonzalez, her nanny for 2 years, kidnapped her 2-year-old daughter.  Gonzalez said she was defamed because of the similar name.  Investigators determined that there was no nanny and charged Anthony with murder.  Casey Anthony was eventually acquitted at trial of the most serious charges relating to her daughter’s disappearance and death.

Casey Anthony - July 2011

Anthony’s lawyers write in their new motion that Gonzalez’s claim is based entirely on privileged conversations with law enforcement and out-of-context comments Anthony made to her mother.  Roy Kronk found Caylee Anthony’s remains near the Anthony home.  He claims he was defamed when Jose Baez made “false statements” about him.  Anthony’s attorneys argue that Kronk is suing based upon protected privileged comments made by Jose Baez.  Besides, under bankruptcy law, a person “cannot be liable for statements of someone else.”

“Over the years, many persons have pursued actions in which they sought to profit, one way or another, from Ms. Anthony’s ordeal,” her attorney, David Schrader, wrote in the motion, “All of the claimants have been rebuffed and turned away empty-handed, though most of them enjoyed their ‘fifteen minutes’ of fame while their claims were pending, which was the real objective.”

Charles Green, Anthony’s civil attorney and Debra Ferwerda Anthony’s lead bankruptcy attorney, said their client never willfully or maliciously defamed Kronk, a meter reader, or Gonzalez, both are required for a defamation lawsuit.

“Casey Anthony specifically says when asked by the police ‘Is this the Zenaida Gonzalez you are referring to?’ she says, ‘No, that’s not the same person.’  She’s not talking about that Zenaida Gonzalez.  Never was.  Kronk is suing on what Jose Baez said in his closing arguments.  He’s suing Casey for something her attorney said, which just can’t be done.  Plus, what is said in court is protected,” said Ferwerda.

Casey Anthony is set to be deposed by Zenaida Gonzalez’s attorneys, her attorneys told FOX35 on Thursday that they will likely file a motion for protective order until after November 5th, the date the federal judge is expected to rule on the motions to dismiss.  Texas Equusearch, another group civilly suing Anthony, may be nearing a settlement with her, according to a recent court filing.

Immaculate Deception - The Untold Story of Caylee Marie Anthony

 

Cometh The Hour – Cometh The Kronk (re-post)

Here’s a re-post from December 14th 2011 featuring Roy “The Body Snatcher” Kronk.

There’s still the  Kronk civil suit in the pipeline, which should prove interesting if it ever gets to court.

From December 14th 2011:

Cometh The Hour – Cometh The Kronk:

Last Sunday – December 11th – was the 3rd anniversary of the discovery of Caylee’s remains… or rather the 3rd anniversary of the exact day Roy Kronk finally decided to quit playing hide & seek with Caylee’s remains… and joyfully announced that he’d “Won the Lottery” just in time for Christmas A sad day indeed for many reasons.

Kronk reminds me, in many ways, of George Anthony (the person responsible for the murder of Caylee). They share many similarities… such as being bypassed by Law Enforcement and never being properly investigated – and of course their mutual addiction & fascination in getting off  on duct tape & little girls.

With that in mind, here’s a recap of the info I wrote about Roy Kronk’s 4 months worth of shennigans from my September post -“Immaculate Deception: The Untold Story of Caylee Marie Anthony“.  As always, I look forward to your comments.

Cometh The Hour – Cometh The Kronk:

This is the dim meter reader guy that spotted Caylee’s skull back on August 11th 2008, while randomly urinating in the bushes. It’s the same guy that came back to the exact same spot numerous times after that (even when he wasn’t working) to urinate and see the skull again.

On one occasion he also mentioned his findings to a few workmates, who subsequently showed more interest in a nearby dead snake.

Here where I think Roy Kronk fits into all this:

The first 3 times Roy reported what he’d seen (August 11th, 12th & 13th 2008) I believe were genuine calls – even though the 911 operators could not have sounded any less interested.

It was probably after the 3rd call that Roy became aware of the $255,000 Caylee Reward money that was on offer. I mean – can you imagine the morally bankrupt Roy Kronk sat there at home – broke & disillusioned – while at the same time visualizing $255,000 in his bank account? I certainly can. And all he had to do to manifest that was FIND the remains. The remains that he’d already found!

This is why Roy decided he’d keep his discovery to himself for a while. Maybe he thought if he was reported as “the guy that found Caylee’s remains”, he could become a prime suspect in the case. This also explains his reluctance to call Crimeline.

Furthermore, it would explain why Roy Kronk kept a very low profile throughout September, October and November. Only to resurface again after he foundthe remains in December.

It was when nobody followed up on Roy’s 3 initial calls that he concocted his plan. He physically MOVED the remains to a “safe place” AT LEAST TWICE, so he could go back there at some convenient later date.

Think about it for a second. Anyone driving past that exact spot on Suburban Drive and seeing a meter reader guy in the woods (with a trash bag) wouldn’t have thought anything of it. The area was one huge dump-it site. I think this is how Roy Kronk managed to move the remains while he hatched his big reward plan.

By the time early November came around, Roy was starting to get a bit twitchy – but he’d kept quiet for too long and had to spill the good news to someone. He bestowed that honor on his son, Brandon Sparks (who also happened to be the only one of his children that would talk to him):

Here’s what happened:

November 2008: Roy Kronk calls Brandon Sparks and tells him; “I found Caylee’s remains. Watch for me on TV cos’ I’m gonna be rich & famous!”(This is 1 month before Caylee’s remains were discovered).

Then on December 11th 2008: After “the big discovery”, Roy asks Law Enforcement: “Will my ex-wife find out about the reward if I get it?”… “Do I still get the reward even though she’s dead?” and “Roy’s gotta eat too!” Same day, he tells his Boss (at the scene): “Alex, I just won the lottery!”

Those comments speak volumes about Roy Kronk’s actions (and inactions) during the previous 4 months leading up to December 11th 2008.

Not forgetting the time Roy met up with Sgt. Richard Cain who couldn’t see anything, slipped, cursed Roy out, and promptly left. He was later fired. Tim Miller, LE & 32 Texas Equusearch Volunteers also allegedly searched this same area in early September 2008 and found nothingDeputy Jason Forgey (and his cadaver dog) did the same at different times too. Zilch.

By all accounts, the reason nobody could find Caylee’s body (in the same spot it was “found” by Roy Kronk on December 11th 2008) was probably down to the strange but true fact that it simply was not there when they searched.

Here’s a segment from FOX News featuring Judge Napolitano. This aired on the day “the remains” were found, but they had not yet been identified as Caylee’s – hence the continual “bag of bones” references. Here, Judge Napolitano covers the highly probable movement of the remains prior to their ultimate discovery:

judge napolitano - search for caylee Dec-11-08

I also believe George indirectly arranged his own search for Caylee’s remains, by giving James Hoover & Dominic Casey a false tip. George was getting worried due to the fact that so many people had searched that area and found nothing. That was NOT part of his plan.

This explains James & Dominic’s well documented & video-taped 2 day search on Suburban Drive on November 15th and 16th 2008 — following up on George’s false tip/lead, which led them straight to the exact spot where the remains should have been found – but weren’t.

On the 2ND day of the search, James Hoover actually parked his car on Suburban Drive just a few car lengths past the end of the red privacy fence, rightopposite the exact spot where ONE MONTH LATER Roy Kronk would find Caylee’s remains, 15-20 feet into the woods.

Are you starting to see how all of this is now beginning to fall into place? I hope so.

In finishing off this Kronk-related section, let’s also take these facts into account:

  • After his “discovery”, the OCSO asked Roy to “keep quiet” and hired him a lawyer.
  • Roy Kronk (unlike his Son, Brandon) refused to allow a search of his phone records.
  • Roy Kronk’s PC was never confiscated or examined.
  • Roy Kronk was never investigated.

Should we not find those 4 facts strange? Can you even start to imagine what OCSO would have found if they’d searched his phone records, examinedhis PC and investigated him further? You can bet your bottom dollar that a search of his PC alone would have made any other Google search findings pale into insignificance.

Could that have been the very reason they DIDN’T fully investigate him? Maybe they agreed that “deal” with him, in return for him not spilling the beans on their inaction in relation to his 3 previous calls in August 2008? Maybe we’ll never know, but it’s possible.

Here’s Part 1 of Brandon Sparks’ trial testimony from June 29th 2011:

Sadly for Roy, all his months of plotting & scheming were to no avail. He even blew any chance of getting the usual $5k reward due to him calling his Supervisorinstead of directly calling the Crimeline – although he did make up for it by the payments he received from all his TV show appearances after the event, by talking about dead snakes and skulls.

I’m not saying Roy Kronk was involved in the death of Caylee Anthony for one moment (I covered that event earlier), but I DO believe he played a pivotal role in the events & shenanigans that unfolded afterwards.

“The Body Snatcher” joins the lawsuit circus

Hot on the heels of Tim Miller jumping on the bandwaggon and getting nowhere fast, now Roy “The Body Snatcher” Kronk has come out of the woodwork and filed a defamation lawsuit against Casey. Wonders never cease.

The report from WESH.com is below. Looking at the bigger picture here, I’d of thought Kronk would have have kept a low profile and thanked his lucky stars that he never got investigated and/or arrested on charges various – including (but not limited to) his reward money grabbing antics and his movement of Caylee’s remains on 2 occasions.

Having said that, I’d heard on the grapevine that Kronk had something up his sleeve, which was one reason for my post last week – “Cometh The Hour – Cometh The Kronk“.  Click the link if you missed it the first time around. It makes interesting reading.

From WESH.com:

“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.”” 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. Since the discovery of Caylee Anthony’s remains in December 2008, Kronk and his attorneys have maintained that he had nothing to do with the toddler’s death, and was solely a good Samaritan who happened to make the discovery.”
