Alabama home of Roy Moore accuser burns, arson suspected

The Etowah County Arson Task Force and Etowah County Sheriff's investigators are looking into a recent house fire at the home of Tina Johnson, who accused Roy Moore of grabbing her in his office.

One official said, "The ongoing investigation does not lead us to believe that the fire is in any way related to Roy Moore or allegations made against him".

One of Roy Moore's accusers has lost her home in a suspected arson attack.

Johnson is among several women who came forward in November with stories of questionable behavior or alleged sexual misconduct by Moore, the failed Republican candidate for the Senate in Alabama.

"A suspect of interest is being spoken to", Barton said.

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. Johnson said the young man asked a neighbor if she thought the house was "going to burn".

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

No charges or warrants had been filed as of late Friday afternoon.

On Tuesday morning, Johnson's home in Gadsen, Alabama went up in flames and the blaze is now being investigated for arson.

The home in Gadsden belonged to Tina Johnson, who told AL.com, an Alabama news site, that Moore had groped her while she was in his Alabama law office on legal business in 1991.

"I am devastated, just devastated", Johnson said on Friday.

Johnson's neighbor Kevin Tallant and others witnessed a young man "walking around the house before and during the blaze".

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