Arson investigation underway after Roy Moore accuser's home burns down

Arson investigation underway after Roy Moore accuser's home burns down

Johnson told AL.com Friday that the fire left her Gadsden home a total loss, saying she was "devastated, just devastated". There was no one inside the home at the time. "I guess I'm ashamed I didn't say nothing, didn't turn around and slap him". In what might not be a coincidence, Johnson's home recently burned down.

The fire destroyed the home on Tuesday morning. "I want people to know that it's OK to finally say something", she told AL.com of her reasoning for going public with her story.

"We have just the clothes on our backs", she told the website.

Police have not released the name of the man they believe may have been involved but he is not through to have been motivated by Johnson's remarks about Moore.

Multiple neighbors witnessed a young man known for public intoxication walking around the house during the time of the fire.

He asked one woman if he thought it would burn down. Several weeks before the special election ultimately won by Doug Jones, Tina Johnson became the sixth accuser to step forward, accusing Roy Moore of groping her in his office in 1991. Johnson accused Moore of commenting on her looks before getting close to her and grabbing her buttocks. She said she is thankful for her neighbors, who have been supportive of her family.

"I threw on my coveralls and took off down the driveway", he said, adding that his wife called 911, but the dispatcher said the fire had already been reported.

Johnson spoke out along with other women in the hope of blocking him from taking office. Most of the allegations against Moore related to behavior with teenage girls in the late-1970s.
