An attorney for a Houston strip club denies allegations by Felicia Johnson’s father that she applied for a job at the club the night she disappeared.
Kevin Johnson said his daughter disappeared days after traveling to Houston from California on April 13 to apply for a job at the Cover Girls gentlemen’s club.
However, Cover Girls attorney Casey Wallace said there is no evidence Felicia applied for a job that night.
She said the club employees who worked that night don’t remember seeing her there.
“There’s paperwork for her to fill out … what we call a dancer’s packet that’s full of information, and they sign it, execute it, and get to work. But that didn’t happen with Ms. Johnson. She didn’t fill out any paperwork. “Wallace told KHOU 11.
Wallace confirmed that he saw surveillance video from the club, but did not see her in the footage.
“I can’t say categorically that she was or wasn’t in that club,” Wallace told KHOU 11.
Felicia, who also went by the name Felivia Marie, celebrated her 24th birthday in Houston before disappearing. She was last seen accepting a ride from a man after her Uber was delayed.
Family members traveled to Houston to conduct their own search for Felicia. Family members found her bloody cell phone on Eldridge Parkway near Bear Creek Park, KHOU-11 reported.
Community activist Quanell X assisted Felicia’s family in the search.
Kevin Johnson (left) held a rally outside Houston City Hall on Thursday to raise awareness of his daughter’s disappearance. He criticized the Houston Police Department for a lack of transparency in its investigation of him.
“I have a lot of questions and no answers and it’s been two weeks,” he said. “This is beyond parody… It’s unreal. It’s unreal. I’m numb right now.”
Kevin said he has yet to see the surveillance video police received from the nightclub.
“I think the Cover Girls footage could possibly provide us with answers about Felicia’s whereabouts and could confirm her identity,” Kevin said.
Houston police say they are withholding evidence to protect the integrity of the case, KHOU-11 reports. The FBI is assisting local police with the investigation.
Crime Stoppers is offering a $5,000 reward for information leading to Felicia’s whereabouts. She is described as 5’4 and 150 pounds with tattoos of roses and butterflies.
