Meter Reader Press Conference 3:30
Roy Kronk, the meter reader who found the remains of Caylee Anthony, said that during the course of his employment he discovered the body. He says that in August he had previously reported that he had spotted a bag in same area where the body was eventually found. “I have been and will continue to cooperate with the investigation.” He declines to say what he saw at the crime scene.

His lawyer says: David Adams, attorney — Mr. Kronk says until today he has chosen to remain anonymous. His participation in this matter is as a concerned citizen with a sharp eye, instincts, and perseverance. He has no connection with the case or the Anthonys and those speculating to the contrary could not be more wrong. He pleads for relief to his co-workers who have been the target of intrusive news tactics. Mr. Adams says that Mr. Kronk asks that you leave his co-workers alone without further intrusion. He thanks the management of Orange County Utilities for their support and he thanks his colleagues for their protection of his privacy and that they have sacrificed their own in doing so.
Mr. Adams goes on to say that at the present time Mr. Kronk will not grant interviews about the case. He will continue to cooperate with the authorities. He will not be responding to questions here today. If and when he decides to have an interview, he will make that decision known and select the appropriate interview forum. He asks again that his privacy be respected and do not attempt to contact him. He says, “permit him peace and quiet over the holidays” and that the story of the events will come out in days to come.
Ashley Banfield, CNN, says that Casey Anthony was informed of the news conference 15 minutes prior. (I think she meant the news conference with the sheriff and the ME,) Her pastor came to the jail to be with her and she refused to see him.
