Casey Anthony: Roy Kronk Should Be a Suspect

January 25, 2010

Attorneys for Casey Anthony, who is charged with killing her daughter, Caylee, want to interview the ex-wife of Roy Kronk, the meter reader who found the little girl’s body.

Haven’t we heard this one before? I swear that we have 🙂

Just as a devil’s advocate, can you imagine the reaction from those in the media, and the blogosphere, if Casey Anthony did not commit this crime? I think that most are fairly if not absolutely certain, that Casey Anthony killed little Caylee.

But just think of the comments you’d see online if she didn’t. Sorry…just was thinking outloud 🙂


From the Associated Press:

Attorneys for Casey Anthony are asking a judge Monday to let them depose the wife of Roy Kronk. He found the body of 2-year-old Caylee Anthony in woods near her home in December 2008.

Casey Anthony’s attorneys say Kronk’s ex-wife is offering testimony that supports the contention that Kronk should be a suspect. Detectives have said repeatedly that Kronk is not a suspect and that the evidence points to Casey Anthony.


Casey Anthony: Court Date Today Could Have Important Ramifications

January 25, 2010

Casey Anthony will be back in court today and rumor has it that she could be taking a plea deal in the check fraud case.

A hearing regarding both the check fraud and murder cases against her will take place this afternoon at 1:30 p.m. (ET).

From the Orlando Sentinel:

Casey Anthony could walk away from today’s hearing a convicted felon. Or there may not be a resolution to the check-fraud charges she faces.

It’s unclear what exactly will happen when the 23-year-old appears in court at 1:30 p.m. today.

One possibility is Anthony could take a plea deal, but prosecutors and Anthony’s defense attorneys are not talking.

The accused child-killer is facing several charges in an unrelated check-fraud case.

Anthony is accused of stealing hundreds of dollars from former friend Amy Huizenga during the time her 2-year-old daughter, Caylee Marie, was missing and likely dead in 2008.

Casey Anthony: Important Hearing Set for Monday Morning

January 22, 2010

Well…we’re going to see something this coming Monday morning. It appears that the defense team’s motion for access to Texas Equusearch records will be argued during this hearing as well as further discussions surrounding a possible plea deal.

The question I have is this: Is there REALLY a plea deal on the table? Hard to say. There seem to be so many conflicting reports.

I guess we’ll have to wait until Monday to learn more!

From WESH:

The 23-year-old has a plea offer on the table in her bank fraud case. Judge Stan Strickland will decide whether to accept it at that same hearing.

Jose Baez, Anthony’s attorney, would neither confirm nor deny that a plea deal has been struck or even discussed.

From The TV Guy:

Maybe a plea deal will happen on Monday at a hearing. There’s a lot of room to speculate because neither prosecutors nor the defense is talking.

Yet WFTV’s Kathi Belich has been responsible for confusion in her reporting. After reporting the plea deal on Tuesday, she started talking on Wednesday about a “plea to the bench” in which Judge Stan Strickland would decide Anthony’s sentence.

But a plea to the bench is not a plea deal. The terminology undoubtedly confused viewers.

Contrast what WFTV offered with what WKMG-Channel 6 has reported. WKMG reported there is no plea deal because there was no agreement by the state and the defense to such a deal.

Casey Anthony: Plea Deal in Check Fraud Case

January 20, 2010

WFTV is reporting this morning that there will be a plea deal in Casey Anthony’s check fraud case.

It appears that the terms of the plea deal might not be until next Monday afternoon. I guess we’ll have to wait and see.

Very interesting! Does anyone think that she will also accept any plea deal in her murder case? Just askin’ 🙂

From WFTV:

A plea deal in the check fraud case certainly could explain why the defense has not yet deposed the alleged victim, Amy Huizenga, and it explains why the judge is not demanding that the trial start first thing Monday morning. He was adamant about the case going on January 25, no matter what, and even mentioned a plea as a possibility in court during one of the last hearings.

Casey Anthony told murder detectives they would never trick her into a confession that she killed her daughter Caylee. That was the day she was indicted for first-degree murder.

Now, Eyewitness News has learned she will take some legal responsibility for allegedly cleaning out hundreds of dollars from the bank account of her ex-best friend, Amy Huizenga. The evidence is clear, including security videos, receipts and canceled checks, and Casey has paid back the $664.25.

From CBS News:

Casey Anthony, the Orlando mother who insists she didn’t murder her 2-year-old daughter, may be prepared to admit to some financial finagling — allegations of check fraud. That case against her, involving a former friend, has been delayed, signaling a possible plea deal.

Anthony’s former friend Amy Huizenga accused her of check fraud. The trial was scheduled to begin Jan. 25, but Orange County court officials said it won’t happen. Instead, there will be hearing in the case on that day, and CBS affiliate WKMG reports the delay could indicate a plea is coming.

Judge to Officially Accept Casey Anthony’s Not Guilty Plea…And CNN Video on the “Death Band”

October 27, 2008

According to WFTV in Florida, Casey Anthony is not required to be in court today for her arraignment as the judge in the case has accepted her written plea.

From WFTV:

Eyewitness News first reported that Casey Anthony entered a written not guilty plea on October 17, which means she does not have to be in court Tuesday when a judge is expected to officially accept her plea.

The judge may also set a trial date for the murder case against Casey.

On Friday night, Casey’s attorney, Jose Baez, visited her at the Orange County jail. No one else has visited her since then and no other visits are currently scheduled.

This follows information from late last week surrounding information released from evidence in Casey Anthony’s trunk:

Scientists who conducted forensic tests in the Casey Anthony investigation concluded that human decomposition and evidence of chloroform were present in the trunk of Casey’s car, according to the report released Friday.

The report details findings from FBI tests on items found inside Casey’s car, including DNA results on hair samples and forensic testing of debris and clothing (read details).Among the results is confirmation that a hair sample found in the vehicle “exhibits characteristics of apparent decomposition.” The report also says that specific hair is “microscopically similar” to hair investigators took from Caylee’s hairbrush.”The hair found in the trunk establishes that Caylee’s dead and that her dead body was in the trunk of the car. Even if they don’t find the body, it’s enough evidence, scientific evidence, to establish that she’s dead,” said Dr. Michael Baden, nationally-renowned forensic pathologist.

As I posted earlier, CNN has a video up discussing the “death band” on hair found in Casey’s trunk which has been linked to Caylee Marie.
