According to Baez, he was fired and moved to Pennsylvania.I don't think Kronk was the innocent meter reader. Too many oddities about it for me to swallow.
I could believe he was assigned to find it. He wasn't given specific enough instructions, or the conditions weren't right for the discovery.(Think Cindy was in town) Where is officer Cain these days? I don't want to believe Caylee was there the whole time. I think she was placed there later. I wish I could see all the unblurred crime scene photos, though, to be sure in my own mind.
"There was a time when Cain returned our calls, but we couldn’t get him to come to Florida to testify. We knew he wasn’t cooperative, so we elected not to bother calling him as a witness. Since the prosecution didn’t call Kronk during the trial, it also decided not to call Cain.
Instead we called Kronk, and when Cain didn’t testify, the jury had to wonder whether the prosecution was hiding something. The jurors had to be wondering, Where’s the cop who showed up that day? What’s the prosecution hiding? They had to be thinking, This is hardly a search for the truth."
