INSIDE CASEY ANTHONY POLICE FILE: HUMAN SACRIFICE RITUAL
Published on: October 12, 2009
In a bizarre twist to the Caylee Anthony murder case, an investigation was launched to determine whether the 2-year-old toddler was killed in a human sacrifice ritual.
The ENQUIRER has obtained official case documents from the Orange County state attorney's office in Florida that show the subject of the family's inquiry was Richard Grund - a self-proclaimed Christian minister who says he can cast out demons as head of an exorcism group he calls the "Supernatural Response Team."
The group's bizarre motto is: "If it's not in Heaven it belongs in Hell and if it's in the outer darkness awaiting judgment it needs to stay there."
Grund is a familiar figure in the Caylee Anthony murder case. He appeared on TV shows defending his son Jesse, the ex-fiance of Caylee's mom, Casey Anthony, who is charged with Caylee's murder. According to the police documents, Casey's mom Cindy Anthony at one time wondered if Richard and/or Jesse might be connected to her granddaughter's murder.
Cindy had her private investigator, Dominic Casey, dig into Grund's demon-fighting crusade to determine if there was a connection to Caylee's killing.
"Isn't he crazy enough to do something to Caylee?" Cindy asked the investigator in an e-mail dated Feb. 26, 2008. "People do crazy things like sacrefice (sic) for their strange beliefs." In his reply, the private eye called Grund "a total whack job."
On Web sites titled "The Swords Edge," "Solomon's Porch" and the "Supernatural Response Team," Grund says he was freed by Jesus from a 30-year bondage to the occult that began as a child while he watched Casper the Friendly Ghost cartoons.
He claims he once ministered to a woman "who was born to be a Satanic high priestess."
Grund also posts a video of his demon-chasing team investigating a satanic possession at a house in Rhode Island.
Using devices Grund says can measure paranormal activity and record unexplained disembodied voices, he determined there was a spirit present in the house, but since the homeowners didn't want it removed, he "left it there."
Under the video of the search for the evil spirit, Grund posts videos filled with pictures of Caylee, titled Slipped Away, and Jesus Loves The Little Children.
The police documents show that Cindy Anthony's private eye found no evidence to link Grund to Caylee's death.
Police are convinced they have the REAL killer behind bars: Casey Anthony.

Pentecostal Minister Richard Grund's civil suit against NE, still pending...
Thursday, October 13, 2011Last Update: 9:46 AM PT
Minister Says Enquirer's 'Casey Anthony Human Sacrifice Ritual' Story Defamed Him
By KEVIN KOENINGER
PALM BEACH (CN)- A Florida minister says The National Enquirer defamed him in a Page 1 story and photo: "Casey Anthony HUMAN SACRIFICE RITUAL! The horrible truth about what happened to Caylee," which called him a "'subject of inquiry in possible HUMAN SACRIFICE.'"
Richard Grund says the Enquirer ran its lurid headline, with the equally titillating subheadline, "'INSIDE CASEY ANTHONY POLICE FILE: BIZARRE TWIST IN CAYLEE'S MURDER, Minister subject of inquiry in possible HUMAN SACRIFICE,' right next to a picture of plaintiff, Richard Grund."
Grund is the father of Casey Anthony's ex-fiance, according to media organizations that covered that case.
After pointing out that the headlines included "bright red" and yellow type, Grund adds: "The article has an excerpted blurb stating 'People do crazy things ... for their strange beliefs,' implying and creating the misimpression that plaintiff's religious beliefs played some role in the horrible tragedy of Caylee Anthony's death."
Grund, a minister in the Pentecostal Holiness Church, says that the Oct. 12, 2009 Enquirer article that depicts him as "some demon-chasing child killer" is false and defamatory.
He also claims that the Enquirer's description of him as "a 'self-proclaimed Christian minister' is false." He says he was ordained and licensed by the Pentecostal Holiness Church in 1992. Grund calls it "a major Protestant denomination," and says the group that ordained him, the Association of Evangelical Gospel Assemblies, "is on of the oldest and largest nondenominational assemblies."
He says the Enquirer "never sought to confirm or deny plaintiff's credentials" before it published the article, "but instead chose to use the derogatory 'self-proclaimed' language."
He claims that the Enquirer mischaracterized his membership in a "Supernatural Response Team" as membership in an "exorcism group."
"Plaintiff does not participate in 'exorcisms,' as exorcisms are a uniquely Roman Catholic ritual performed by Roman Catholic priests," Grund says.
Grund says: "The article creates the false and misleading impression that the police in charge of the Caylee Anthony case were investigating a connection between plaintiff and Caylee Anthony's disappearance and death. Plaintiff was never the subject of such an investigation by the police, nor anyone else and said statement was false.
"The statements regarding 'a demonic chasing team investigating a satanic possession at a house in Rhode Island,' are false, as are the statements regarding the posting of videos, one of which is not the plaintiff's creation.
"The overriding message and content of the article portrayed plaintiff as some demon-chasing child killer for public consumption and the profit of National Enquirer."
Grund seeks punitive damages for defamation.
"The statements in the article convey the misleading falsity that plaintiff, an ordained minister, murdered a child in an unspecified human sacrifice ritual," Grund says. "As a result, plaintiff has been subjected to distrust, hatred, contempt and ridicule which has damaged his reputation and ministry."
Grund is represented in Palm Beach County Court by Douglas Roberts, with Stearns, Roberts & Guttentag, of Fort Lauderdale.

Not excitement, but certainly curiously ........considering the Rev was very vocal up until Casey was acquitted and ever since has become as silent as a church mouse, INCLUDING the media barely mentioning a word about this civil suit....

The Rev left footprints all over the internet which contradict his original civil suit and prove him a liar, so what is his basis of appeal? The obvious answer is the Rev is not Richard Grund at all, and he impersonated someone he thought was dead but has arisen from the grave to clear his name, so to speak.

That satisfies Cindy Anthony's unusual declaration in the ZG civil suit depo that she didn't know where Richard or Jesse Grund lived nor their phone number even though the Rev claimed that after Caylee was born, when Casey was engaged to Jesse, they virtually lived at his place out the back door of Universal Studios where Casey worked before she became an event planner.....

Obvious to whom besides you?

Grund is silent b/c the trial ended nearly 2 yrs ago. What is he supposed to say? No one would give Grund or any of the very minor figures in the Casey case the time of day anymore. The media can't be bothered with writing about Grund's civil suit, since his 15 min of fame died out 2 yrs ago.

The fact that you see impostors everywhere tells us a lot about your misfiring synapses.

Grund & Company
Painting & Wall Covering Contractors

About Us

Click to view 110 years of Grund... Grund and Company is a family-owned and operated commercial painting contractor, performing work in Seattle and Western Washington since 1898. We have successfully established and maintained our reputation in the Pacific Northwest as a premier painting contractor, working with owners, architects, and general contractors to deliver the highest quality projects and finishes.

<snip>

As the 1950’s and 1960’s wore on, the two families continued to grow. Art and Mildred had their two sons, Darryl and Richard, while Hugo and wife, Esther, had three sons – Raynard, Frederick, and Wayne. It soon became clear that there was not room in management of the company for the sons interested, and the company split in 1966, with the creation of Jacobson and Sons, Inc. in the Ballard neighborhood of Seattle, and Grund and Company, Inc. in north Seattle – the current location today on 97th and Aurora. Wayne, Hugo Jacobson’s youngest son, owned and operated the Jacobson and Sons business in Ballard, while Richard Grund took the reins of Grund and Company. In 1978, Richard purchased Jacobson and Sons back from Wayne and Hugo, reuniting the companies, and Wayne assumed the role of general superintendent until his retirement in 2008. The company has continued to thrive under the name Grund and Company, Inc. to present day.

Stacey Grund, son of Richard Grund (previous owner pictured at right).......now owns Grund and Company, Inc

I always greatly admire family-run enterprises which are able to endure throughout the decades. More often than not, subsequent generations become the fallout.

I wonder what ever happened to this Richard Grund, probably born in the 50s. After he merged the two companies in 1978, it doesn't state that he continued to be actively involved although his son has now taken over the company.

Just an off-the-ceiling wild guess, but something the original ngrace said reminds me of this company, as well as Krissy and the Washington location........and of course the name of Richard Grund. He's a sharp, clever looking man (unlike the Rev IMO)

Greetings former trollmates. I hope the summer of 2013 is finding you well and in good spirits.

Was I surprised to hear that the 4th district court of appeals upheld the lower court ruling in Grund VS National Enquirer? F*ck No, I wasn't.

Since he is now the official loser, does that mean he DID kill Caylee in a human sacrifice ritual (or perhaps he was her bio-father?)

Was Dom Casey on Grund's payroll the entire time?
Stay tuned.......

Have a great summer. Over & Out!

Because really nothing has ever been released regarding the context of the Richard Grund civil suit or the appeal, I will presume the purpose was a matter of evidence being officially entered on court record. A designated power of attorney has that legal right.
