  • Roy Moore accuser loses everything in house fire under investigation for arson

An Alabama woman who accused failed GOP Senate candidate Roy Moore of sexual assault came home from work earlier this week to find out that her house had burned down - and the blaze is now being investigated as possible arson, officials said.

Defeated U.S. Senate candidate Roy Moore's wife has identified the "Jewish" attorney she referred to at a campaign rally.

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

Johnson told AL.com Friday that the fire left her Gadsden home a total loss, saying she was "devastated, just devastated". "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.

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

Tallant, who said he lives across the street from Johnson and her family, said another neighbor called him to say smoke was coming out from Johnson's home and they were concerned that somebody might be inside.


"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", the Etowah County Sheriff's Office said in a statement.

Johnson detailed an encounter from 1991, in which the then-28-year-old says Moore "grabbed me from behind, on my buttocks", during a custody dispute between Johnson and her mother at Moore's law office in Gadsden, Alabama.

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

Moore denied any wrongdoing, but he lost the race to Democrat Doug Jones.

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