The Orange County utility worker who last month discovered the remains of Caylee Anthony in a wooded area near the girl’s grandparents’ home will likely give a network television interview next week, although it’s not known if he will be paid a licensing fee, Local 6 News reported.
Roy Kronk, an Orange County water meter reader, found the skeletal remains Dec. 11 off Suburban Drive, less than half a mile from the Hopespring Drive home of George and Cindy Anthony, where Caylee lived with her mother, Casey Anthony, 22, who remains jailed on first-degree murder charges in her daughter’s death.
Kronk’s attorney, David Evans, told Local 6 News on Friday that it is likely his client will likely give the interview Monday or Tuesday. Evans would not say which network would conduct the interview. It’s customary for networks to pay expenses for its guests — which Evans said would happen — but he would not say if Kronk was being paid for the interview.
“Roy Kronk lost his wife to cancer last year, and that battle brought him down to his last dime,” said Evans, who added that he would like to find a way to get his client some compensation.
Kronk’s only comments since the discovery were made three weeks ago when he held a news conference and issued a brief statement.
“Back in August of this year, I had previously reported to Crimeline and to the sheriff’s communications center that I had spotted something suspicious, a bag in the same area,” Kronk said. “I have been and will continue to cooperate fully with the ongoing investigation by the sheriff’s office and the FBI. I have provided detailed information to law enforcement but I respectfully decline at this time to get into the details of what I saw at the crime scene.”
There are numerous conspiracy theories that have circulated about Kronk’s role in the case, and Evans said his client feels the time is right to set the record straight.
Evans said he is preparing Kronk for all types of scrutiny.
