Kronk himself told LE that what he "found" in December was the same thing he saw in August.
Within minutes of going into the woods on August 11th with his coworkers nearby he said to them, "Hey guys. I see a skull in here." That is very specific and dramatic.
IMO, he already knew there was a body (with visible skull) there before August 11th. He pretended to discover it at that moment but he had already done so on a previous occasion.
But I am very skeptical that the things he saw in August were the same things he "found" in December. The police officer was SIX FEET AWAY from his August find. It is hard to imagine a skeleton that is above ground and partially or barely covered by a bag that is six feet away could not be identified as a skeleton when he is being directed to look right at it.
I dont believe he was in the same spot, looking at the same bag and round white thing in August as he was in December. In December, he was alone and had more time to check multiple bags before he reported it. In August, he picked one he thought might be it, and it just wasnt. MR himself said he could not be 100% sure it was the same spot and same items since the land was dry and looked different.
I believe, although it has been two years since I thought about this one, that we determined the skull would not have been white in August anyway.
Going back to when Kronk met LE at the swamp... IMO, the reason why Kronk "let" that officer blow it off and walk away was because he had only one other alternative at that moment. He would have had to say "Listen, I know there is a body in that water right where I am pointing. I've already walked out there previously and looked directly at it with my own eyes. I guarantee you will find it too if you just get your boots wet."
He didn't want to say that to the officer. So he let it go. Well, no he didn't let it go.
The other issue I have is that if the Anthonys had recieved a tip that the body was there from whomever. Why not march down there and get your grandkid. Again, with nothing to hide. Hell go get her!
I think CA & GA knew that if they found the body, it would implicate ICA. Since they supported her 100% (at least until this trial started) they could not do anything themselves with that information. I think they needed someone to go get it and chose the PIs, and chose at least one PI who would go along with the story of the psychic. I think they wanted the body out of those woods. But their house was under 24 hour webcam surveillance and people followed them everywhere... they couldn't very well just go get her without having to disclose where they got the information. There's a part of me that thinks (this is totally just an opinion and I am not sure about it in anyway, just a feeling) that they were told the location in the hopes they could arrange for the remains to disappear. The fact that ICA freaked out so bad when the remains were found felt to me like she really, really thought they would never show up, which would be pretty unlikely given she put them in that location to be found, like JB said. I think she thought that the remains had been removed.
As a side note, I think this was the hardest time for them. This was the timeframe of CA's "silent" interview... I think they were in deep grief once they learned they needed to give up hope for a live Caylee, and that her little body was so close but they would lose Casey if they told anyone. I think that is why they brought in the PIs on their own. It was the only thing they could think of to do.
What is puzzling is why she was placed so close to the house and essentially very easy to find. Caylee wasn't buried and there was no outward attempt to conceal her other than the laundry bag. But a canvas laundry bag that is obviously stuffed with something is going to attract the attention of many people - even those who would not specifically be looking for a missing little girl.
