Prosecutor: Missing Florida Girl May Have Been Killed

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) - Prosecutors in Florida say the case of a missing 2-year-old Orlando girl is beginning to look like a homicide.

A judge set bond at $500,000 Tuesday for the girl's mother, who was charged with obstructing the investigation after investigators say she lied to them.

Circuit Judge Stan Strickland says he's concerned that evidence presented in court possibly implicates 22-year-old Casey Anthony in 2-year-old Caylee's death. An investigator testified that Anthony's car smelled of decomposition when it was found.

Anthony was arrested last week after reporting her daughter missing. The girl hasn't been seen since last month.

Anthony's attorney says there is circumstantial evidence of a possible homicide, but not enough to give prosecutors the confidence to charge Anthony with homicide, kidnapping or any similar offense.

    This is a sad world that we live in. I pray that they find Caylee.

    I think the grandmother needs to be thrown in jail too. Someone calls her to tell her that her granddaughter was seen but they don't bother to call the police instead of her and the grandmother doesn't have them call the police. What person in their right mind would believe their daughter after her hiding the fact that her grandchild has been missing a month. I would have probably waited 15 minutes while I ran around the neighborhood. There was no babysitter. She lied about two jobs and left her car at one of them and it was towed away. I think the grandmother probably cares about the child but she is a fool. THE SAD FACT IS THAT PEOPLE KILL THEIR KIDS ALL THE TIME EVEN THE NICE LOOKING PEOPLE DO IT
