On August 11, 2008 he met Roy Kronk on Suburban Drive. He was there to help Roy Kronk. He was with a co worker he was training. He is shown an aerial view of Suburban Drive.
He identifes Suburban Drive and HOpeSpring Drive. He shows where he parked..
He testifies they met Roy Kronk and then stopped for a rest under some trees. DD testfies he was aware of the media at the Anthony home but they did not discuss it. DD testifies that when he pulled up to the site he told Kronk that the little girls body could be in there. RK went to go relieve himself. When he came back he said he saw a skull in the woods. DD said "A skull?" DD said he was heading that way and he almost stepped on a dead rattlesnake. DD testifies the snake was more interesting than the skull. RK came to the truck. He figured RK must have been kidding because he did not pursue it. DD testifies that Caylee was common conversation at work. IT was on the news everyday.
DD> RK did not pursue the matter of the skull further. When they got to work everyone came to the truck to see the dead snake. The topic of the skull did not come up.
RK did not tell him about calling 911 about the skull ever. He never told him he met the deputy at site in question. RK never mentioned anything.Burdick obj. again to question. Perry sustains it.
Burdick objects to Baez's line of questions "Leading the witness." Perry sustains objection.
DD recalls the radio transmission on December11, 2008. He hesitantly describes him as sounding "excited but states without seeing his face or anything."He describes it as a "startling event."Burdick obj. again to question. Perry sustains it.
Judge asks DD what was RK states. DD states he sounded like he had a normal tone.
Baez: What did you say to Kronk when call came in. Dean: I told you she was in there.
DD kept the rattlesnake in the freezer. DD> Le took it and they said they did an autopsy.
DD> RK went about 25 feet into the woods. (when he relieved himself)
Burdick to DD. What he said led RK to look into the woods. Dean said on Aug 11, 2008 he told Kronk he thought CAylee was in swamp area. He tells LDB he had nothing to do w/ her body being there When he said he thought Caylee was in the woods was because it was a swampy area, "close to home" per CAsey Anthony. RK said the area was dense but dry. RK>Area is usually swampy. He noticed when he worked.
Baez> DD the area was swampy. It could be dry in some areas and wet in some. It was very dense. You could not see in there.
