    He calls three times. The police finally dismiss it as being the remains of a dog causing the oder. But he is still not sure. He still thinks it could have been Caylee. He thinks about it for months.....Caylee is never found. So one day, he is back on his old route, and it is still bothering him so he stops to check it out. My first reaction on seeing a skull that close to Caylee's home is I have finally found her. He had thought all along that she was there.

    I can see myself doing the same thing.....when I could not get anyone to listen to me. I would have to see for myself. And yes, I would think it was Caylee right off the bat.
    I posted on this before,but want to repeat my thoughts.He was a mr,quiet guy,not a leader,a follower.LE is authority figure.They dismissed him 3 times.Not trusting his own judgement enough to make a big deal of it he stays quiet,but it still bugs him,so he goes back.
    LE during the time of the first 3 tips had been near the area and found a dead animal.They knew decomp was in the car and had cell phone pings out by the airport.They had a working theory that KC moved Caylee away from home.They had thousands of tips coming in.They just didn't give this guy much credibility.A big mistake,but to me,understandable given the circumstances.
    Thank God,mr went back.Thank God.
    Always ,just my opinion

    No, but the conversation I quoted you were referring to the mentioning of finding a skull-that wasn't the meter reader on the phone--it was the utility company's emergency dispatcher.

    I helped to start the "rumor" because the name German G. was reported on Fox 35 News and I was not the only one who heard them say it!!! I was only repeating what was reported, not inventing rumors - of course, with it being 35, they didn't put it in print anywhere so there was no way to link what was broadcast live! Not the first time this sort of thing has happened with the media...

    Just to clear the record here!

    Playing devil's advocate here - bear with me...?

    Doesn't the timing of the meter reader's calls sort of help the defense?

    Think about the whole timer55 thing - and remember early on when they kept saying that Caylee's birthday (August 9) was like the 'deadline' - like they had to find her by then or she may be harmed - at least this is what I recall the sentiment to have been back then.

    Since the meter reader 1st called on August 11 - just two days after Caylee's birthday - just two days after the 'deadline', wouldn't this support the defense theory (or a possible theory)?

    Don't you think the defense can use the timing of the first call to their advantage?

    ETA: I do not suspect the meter reader at all. I've posted this only regarding timing and possible defense theories. Maybe this is not the correct thread...

    I recall a post here back in Sept-Oct about tipsters back in August reporting a smell in the area where Caylee was found. I've searched and searched and can't find it now.

    I KNOW it's here and I know it was discusded...Someone please help me find it!

    I guess anyone who actually searches for and finds the missing child's remains gets rewarded with suspicion. LE has checked Mr. Kronk out from top to bottom and he is not considered anything but a witness. He is not unlike the thousands of other people who tried to find Caylee.

    I do not recall Mr. Kronk saying that he lived on Hopesprings. Link?

    Furthermore, a poster here set out on her own recon mission. She went to the area and into the wooded area. She reported that the area was full of trash and lots of garbage and that anyone entering the woods at any point would likely stumble upon trash bags.

    Let's just be grateful that this man followed up on his hunch and didn't just let it go.

    I have had 4 such "hunches" and had I followed up on them I would have discovered 3 dead bodies and the hiding place of a serial rapist. I am glad that he did what I didn't.

    Norr- jealous about that turducken.

    But regarding smells in that area, I've posted this before but I'm going to say it again.

    If Caylee was missing for 31 days before it was reported and Caylee was disposed of in that area, any smells coming from that wooded lot at Chickasaw & Suburban drives would not have been a sign for anybody that a human body was decomposing.

    And on one of the shows last friday night (NG or Greta) one of their forensics experts said that the conditions in Florida in summer time would create an environment that the remains would be skeletonized within two weeks.

    So I think concerns about smells anytime after we knew Caylee was missing are a moot point.

    And while we're debunking rumors- does anyone recall a reliable source (LE) stating that the bag the Meter Reader saw was originally next to the road? I only recall reading that here.

    But I do recall hearing that the bag he saw in august was grey- and that the bag with Caylee's remains was black.

    And finally, with regard to the wooded area- across the street from where I live is an area just like that- and I am less than an hour from Hopespring Drive. So let's assume the plants and conditions are similar. If Casey dumped that bag in June- which is the end of our dry/wildfire season and the beginning of our rainy season, it makes perfect sense that plants and such would have obscured the bag from the road in a matter of weeks.

    There is a kudzu like vine here- called an air potato or similar that grows about a foot per day and will wind around (and choke) anything in it's path. I would not be at all surprised to learn that the area with the bag had this stuff around it. And in the fall these plants are less lush so a bag that was obscured in July and August would most certainly be easier to see in December.

    Great post -- Thanks.

    Understand kudzu for sure. Makes sense!!

    Yum!!

    It's really sad how people are brought into this case and ripped apart when they are not guilty of anything except for Caylee coming into their lives. This man lost his wife a year ago from cancer and now this. I think a lot of people need to step back and take a deep breath here instead of acting like wild wolves pouncing on their prey. The only people that are really guilty in this instance with the 3 phone calls and then Mr. K finding her are KC and the 3 deputies that should have searched for her. I can not comprehend how a deputy goes out and gets scared off by a snake. He had a gun for crying out loud. Just put yourselves in his position.

    Everyone wanted Caylee to be found to be put to rest, except KC and possibly the A's (judging by their behavior). Without Mr. K, that wouldn't be possible still. There were many WS'er who participated in the searches (Thank you to all of you for your work and undying love for Caylee) and if it would have been one of them who found her would some of you be ripping apart a fellow WS'er who found her?

    Question for those who've been on here since the start. What was that website discussed and linked to quite a few times at the start back in July where you open it and there's a video showing the Anthony home and then it shows the back yard and then the fence and over the fence and pans out to the fields and then the waste land and vegetation -insinuating that was where to find Caylee-does anyone remember this-was this the area where she was found?

    I've been on her since the beginning. Is it the video when they did the search in the backyard?

    I agree with you. If I was out searching for Caylee and found a child's skull you would probably have a 911 call with me saying I found Caylee.

    I just think it's such a tragedy. I couldn't even imagine being in his shoes. I applaud him for finding her. The circumstances are weird, I admit, but this case in it's entirety is strange.

    Thank you, Mr. K for finally letting Caylee be put to rest.

    and to KC I hope you R.I.H.
