Roy Moore accuser Tina Johnson's home gutted in fire, arson investigation underway

Posted January 06, 2018

Johnson, who was 28 at the time, said she visited Moore's office with her mother, who had hired Moore in a custody case involving Johnson's 12-year-old son. While no one was hurt ― Johnson, her husband and her grandchild were all out of the house at the time ― the family lost all their possessions in the blaze. "But, you know, right now I'm just so devastated", says Tina Johnson. Johnson said the young man asked a neighbor if she thought the house was "going to burn".

As reported, the Tuesday morning fire that burned nearly all of Johnson's home in Gadsden, Alabama is under investigation by the Etowah County Arson Task Force. "We have just the clothes on our backs".

On Tuesday morning, residents said they saw the man walking around the back of the home.

'He didn't pinch it; he grabbed it, ' she said at the time.

The home of Tina Johnson, one of the women who accused former Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore of inappropriate sexual contact, has been burned down in a suspected arson.

Natalie Barton, a spokeswoman for the Etowah County Sheriff's office, told the Daily News that the local arson task force is investigating the blaze and that authorities are speaking to a person of interest. Etowah County added that the fire did not appear to be related to Roy Moore or the allegations made against him by Johnson and others.

Doug Jones became the first Democrat sent to the Senate from Republican stronghold Alabama in a quarter century. Moore has denied the allegations.

"I was so humiliated and sickened", she said.
