Testimony resumed Tuesday in the Casey Anthony murder trial in central Florida, and once again, RadarOnline.com is live streaming the testimony.
One of the most anticipated witnesses took the stand Tuesday in the murder trial that has riveted the nation. Roy Kronk, the meter reader who discovered Caylee’s remains began his testimony saying that he spotted an item he thought looked like a skull in the woods near the Anthony family home on August 11, 2008. He said contacted law enforcement to check it out, but admitted he never came closer than 30 feet to the object.
Kronk said he thought there was a skull near a fallen tree with a white board down across it and there was a gray bag too. He said that he tried to point it out to co-workers, but they found a dead rattlesnake and were more interested in that.
He said he went back to the same location on August 13, 2008, but didn’t smell anything peculiar. He made calls to 9-1-1 in August to authorities, but it was not until December 2008 that he returned to the area where Caylee’s remains were found.
When deputies arrived, Kronk testified he didn’t say there was a bag of bones in the area. “I told him I saw an object that appeared to look like a skull.”
Casey’s defense claimed in opening statements that Roy Kronk moved Caylee’s remains. They also said Caylee died in a drowning accident in the family pool on June 16, 2008 and Casey lied about her death for months.
If Casey, 25, is convicted of first-degree murder, she may be facing the death penalty.
