Roy Kronk, the man who discovered Caylee Anthony’s remains fired Tuesday
“Roy Kronk was scheduled to attend a pre-determination hearing yesterday to address issues pertaining to his employment with the County. He failed to show for the hearing, and a decision has been issued terminating his employment effective immediately,” the county wrote Kronk’s lawyer, David Evans. (Evans was being paid by the county to represent Kronk.)”Therefore, the County shall not pay any legal fees associated with representing Mr. Kronk that are incurred from this point forward.”
“We appreciate the courtesy and professionalism you have demonstrated throughout your excellent representation of Mr. Kronk,” the county’s attorney, Lichtman wrote. “Should you have any questions or comments, please do not hesitate to contact me.”
According to Ron Nielsen, interim Deputy Director of Orange County Utilities,
“He (Kronk) was basically unable to perform the essential functions of his job. I’m not at liberty to discuss the reasons why.”
Kronk was a $10.60 an hour county worker who had fame suddenly thrust upon him when he discovered the remains of Caylee Anthony. The county hired an attorney for him and set a $10,000 limit on Evans’ bills. Evans discounted his hourly rate by around $100 to $225 an hour, but the county still had to raise their spending limit by $2500.
Well, I’m sure we will hear the reason Kronk was fired quicker than you can blink an eye. I hope it was because of something he CLEARLY did or didn’t do, and had nothing to do with the expense being incurred for his attorney. Otherwise, I’m sure a lawsuit will be in short-order.
