“I don’t watch the news so when the police called I had no knowledge of what they were talking about,” Hendricks recalled of the horrific 2008 discovery.

Hendricks added that police officers were “stupefied” to learn he was unaware of Caylee’s missing status as it had been heavily reported at the time.

When the property owner learned the disturbing details of Casey Anthony’s daughter’s brutal killing, he told, “Of course I was shocked.”

Still, Hendricks said he chose not to follow the case as the rest of the country watched on in horror.

“I don’t find it useful,” Hendricks said of local and national media outlets. “I didn’t follow it through.”

Hendricks recalled being questioned by police on the day Caylee’s skeletal remains were found inside of a trash bag that had been wrapped in a blanket.

“They wanted to know particulars about the property,” he said.

Today, the plot of land is on sale for a whopping $40,000, reported. Realtors who listed the half-acre plot of land advertise it as a “wooded paradise” despite it being a murder scene.

Hendricks said he has not visited the site in years but it does cross his mind.

“When I think about the property, sometimes I think about the Caylee situation,” Hendricks confessed.

The land owner said he’s still “clueless” as to what really happened there.

He is, however, aware that citizens from all over the country often visit the site and leave gifts – particularly crosses – for the deceased tot.

One eyewitness recently told the half-acre plot of land is like a “swamp” that cannot be built on. Hendricks denied that claim, adding it’s property a potential buyer can develop on.

“It’s property that you can build on,” Hendricks told “I’m trying to get rid of the property because I don’t want to build on it.”
