Roy Moore accuser Tina Johnson 'loses everything' after home burns down in suspected arson

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

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.

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

Johnson was among eight women who came forward to say Moore acted inappropriately with them, with four saying he pursued them while they were teenagers and he was an adult.

The home of a woman who accused failed Alabama Republican Senate candidate Roy Moore of sexual harassment was destroyed in a fire earlier this week, Al.com reported Friday.

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.

AL.com reports that Johnson's neighbors noticed a suspicious man walking around the house on Tuesday before it caught on fire. The man reportedly approached a second neighbor and asked her if she thought the Johnson house was going to burn. "We have just the clothes on our backs".

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

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

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.

"I got up there", Tallant said, "and [the fire] was already pretty well started".

"I like people like that", he said.

Johnson and her family are living in a motel while their friends and neighbors help them recover from the blaze. The neighbor didn't know what he was talking about, she said, because flames weren't visible at the time.

"My neighbors are just heartbroken, too", she said.
