  • Roy Moore Accuser's Home Burns Down, Arson Task Force Investigating

One of the women who accused failed Senate candidate Roy Moore of inappropriate sexual contact said Friday that her Alabama home burned to the ground and that investigators suspect arson.

During the special election campaign a year ago, Tina Johnson accused Moore of grabbing her backside in his office in the early 1990s.

Johnson's home caught fire Wednesday morning. 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.

The Etowah County Arson Task Force confirmed it is investigating the blaze in Gadsen and speaking to a person of interest. The department said in a statement that it does not suspect the fire is related to allegations made against Moore, though it gave no explanation why they believe that to be the case.

On Friday, she told AL.com how she had lost everything in the fire. "More details will be released when warrants are obtained".

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

According to AL.com, Johnson accused Moore of groping her when she was 28. "But there have been no charges, to my knowledge, related to the fire at this time". He asked one of the neighbors if she "thought Johnson's house was going to burn", but the neighbor in question didn't understand because flames were not yet visible.

"He's been trouble in the neighborhood for a while", said Tallant, who lives across the street from Johnson and her family.

At the start of the meeting, Moore remarked on how "pretty" she was and made her feel uncomfortable, she said.
