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, NBC News reported.
She was in the public eye most recently in November, when she came forward to accuse Moore of groping her while at his law office in 1991.
A fire has destroyed the home of a woman who accused U.S. Senate candidate Roy Moore of sexual misconduct.
Johnson's home caught fire Wednesday morning.
After neighbors and some utility workers called 911 shortly after 8 a.m. Tuesday, the Lookout Mountain Fire Department responded to the scene.
"A suspect of interest is being spoken to", Barton said.
Republican U.S. Senate candidate Roy Moore of Alabama called the sexual misconduct allegations 'scurrilous' and 'false'
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. She was quoted by Al.com on Friday as saying that she and her husband were at work at the time of the blaze and they lost everything they owned.
I am devastated, just devastated.
"We have just the clothes on our backs", she told the website.
Johnson's neighbor Kevin Tallant and others witnessed a young man "walking around the house before and during the blaze". "When the fire department got there, I started helping them".
"By this lawsuit, I seek to do what I could not do as a 14-year-old - hold Mr. Moore and those who enable him accountable", said Corfman, whose lawsuit asks Moore to publicly apologize. She said she is thankful for her neighbors, who have been supportive of her family.More news: LG's compact 4K UHD projector to debut at CES 2018
