Meter reader who found girl's body may testify in Casey Anthony trial

The meter reader who discovered Caylee Anthony's remains could testify Tuesday as a defense witness in the murder trial of her mother Casey, his attorney said.

Roy Kronk has been ordered to report to court at the start of the day, according to his attorney David Evans.

In his opening statement, Anthony defense attorney Jose Baez pointed the finger of responsibility at Kronk, who discovered Caylee's body on December 11, 2008, according to a sheriff's detective.

According to the defense, Kronk actually discovered the remains months earlier. Baez called Kronk "a morally bankrupt person who took Caylee's body and hid it ... he thought he had a lottery ticket. ... He can't be ignored in this."

Evans denied the accusations made by Baez.

In developments Monday, Anthony, who is accused of killing her 2-year-old daughter in 2008, was determined competent to proceed with her capital murder trial after she was examined by two psychologists and a psychiatrist over the weekend, the judge said.

    Not sure if it's important or not but Baez made an error while questioning Kronk, Baez asked him to think back to
    Dec 11, 2011. Well there was never a correction made, at least not while he was being questioned. I sure hope something like that does not help Casey in any way!!!!

    Roy Kronk on the stand made a statement that was very interesting and yet the defense missed it:

    Roy under oath"I used my meter stick whith a reader on one end and the handle was TAPED to poke into the eye socket of the skull lifting it up..." WAS this Tape DUCT TAPE? Could he have paniced and used the smaller pieces of tape to put the jaw back hoping no one would question that he disturbed the evidence?

    I would like to see that meter reader stick offered as evidence and question his co-workers as to the tape on his handle. This makes more sense since smaller peices would actually go completely around the handle, unlike the skull. I do not find it plausable that 3 small peices of tape would be used on a skull to murder or to dispose of body, rather one would wrap the tape around the complete head period. Just something to think about bring up Roy's testimoney and you will clearly hear he said the handel was taped. An unconscience admission of guilt.?
