Photos Show Missing Florida Girl's Mother Partying at Club

The mother of a missing 2-year-old Florida girl was caught by photographers partying at a club June 20 -- after the date she claims her daughter disappeared.

The photographs, obtained by FOX News, show Casey Anthony smiling and posing with various people at an Orlando club called Fusion. She later would tell police that her daughter, Caylee Marie Anthony, had been missing since earlier in the month.

John Azzilano, the nightlife photographer who snapped the images, said 22-year-old Casey Anthony was enjoying herself.

"She seemed happy, as were most of the people there that night," Azzilano told FOX News. "She seemed all right, having a good time, just like people our age would that night."

Casey Anthony remains in jail on charges of child neglect, making false official statements and obstructing a criminal investigation. She is being held on a $500,000 bond and is a person of interest but has not been charged in Caylee’s disappearance, which prosecutors say is beginning to look like a homicide.

When Anthony and her family first reported Caylee’s disappearance on July 15, she told police the girl already had been missing for a month. She also claimed that Caylee had been taken by a baby sitter, who also vanished...

Michael Walsh, one of Anthony’s attorneys, told FOX News on Tuesday that she initially had not been forthcoming with the timeline of Caylee’s disappearance because the babysitter had made threats and Anthony feared for her daughter’s safety.

“I think this young girl was going through the pressures and stress of what she was dealing with,” he said.

Walsh confirmed that Anthony had been at the club Fusion but disputed that the photos were taken after the daughter’s disappearance. He also said that Anthony was working at the club as "one of the promotion girls at that club," but declined to elaborate.

The nightclub photos have surfaced following the release of phone conversations she has made from jail, videotaped meetings with family members and other recordings related to the case.
A judge Tuesday denied Anthony's request to stop the further release of such recordings.
Meanwhile, the FBI is considering taking over the case, which is currently being handled by the Orange County Sheriff's Department, MyFOX Orlando has learned.

It seems like this whole family has something to hide. The self-absorbed , lying mother and the bombastic, over-acting of the grandmother seem to indicate that all this family is concerned with is each other, not that little baby. the mother is a psychopathic narcissist. I sadly feel like this little girl is dead, and no one in that family cares at all.

I sure agree with you Jamie.
The truth doesn't seem to come easily to Casey or Cindy.
Did you catch in the jail-house tele-con between Casey and her brother Lee, he said to her "and remember, the truth doesn't hurt."
I wouldn't have to remind anyone in my family of that fact.

So Casey was partying AFTER Caylee was "gone missing". Here is my take, which I'm sure no one wants: Casey wanted to vacation and party. Put Caylee down for a nap in the TRUNK... forgot about her due to a drug/ drunk escapade. Found her dead and made up a story that doesnt make sense.
Casey is lying, Mom is in denial and trying to play us for fools. The brother suspects the TRUTH but Casey is a sociopath and cant be broke by anyone close to her.

It's SO obvious that the "mother" either killed her daughter, or sold her to a childless couple - or to a pedophile or the child sex slave trade. She had no interest in being a mom. The grandma is in total denial of the truth.

I saw the photo of this young woman partying at a club. She appears to be really broken up. If I was a cop investigating this case, the first thing i say to her is, "ok lady, where is the body?" This is not going to turn out well.

The circumstances surrounding this event are certainly considered a tragedy, but we should consider the concept of a post-term abortion. Casey should have the right to choose. Casey should have the right to protect her health. Both these arguments are made to justify late-term abortions. We are squabbling over 24 months.
