Ex-meter reader who found Caylee's remains suing Casey

Updated:

ORLANDO, Fla.,None - Former Orange County meter reader Roy Kronk is suing Casey Anthony.

Kronk, the man who found the remains of two-year-old Caylee Anthony, has filed a defamation claim against Anthony, according to his attorney Howard Marks.

Kronk’s suit contends that statements made by Anthony, or those representing her, suggesting that Kronk might have taken Anthony’s young daughter, killed and hidden her body are defamatory. Marks said Anthony’s statements that Caylee drowned means she was trying to deflect the blame to others.

Anthony is the only defendant named in the lawsuit.

Anthony is also being sued in civil court by Zenaida Gonzalez and by Texas EquuSearch.
