Single with no money left to mingle. Orlando’s options for single bedroom rentals are rising faster than the national average, with a 4.1% spike since May and 15.5% in the last year.

Casey Anthony might be making a mandatory visit back to O-town. Roy Kronk, the man who found the body of Caylee Anthony, is pushing for his defamation lawsuit against Casey Anthony to proceed. The suit was initially filed in 2011 but was put on hold while Anthony went through bankruptcy proceedings. During Anthony’s murder trial, her lawyers suggested that Kronk had been the one who murdered Caylee, hid her body for months, and then pretended to find the body. As of yesterday afternoon, the federal judge had not filed any orders on Kronk’s attorney’s motion. (Orlando Sentinel)
