Arizona mother, Elizabeth Johnson, likely murdered her beautiful 8-month-old boy, Gabriel, over two years ago.
Although Johnson says she gave the boy to some strangers in a park, no one really believes her, and Elizabeth told Gabriel’s father that she killed the child and threw him in a dumpster.

Johnson, who took Gabriel away from his father, had originally conspired with a woman she met in an airport, named Tammi Smith. Johnson had planned to give Gabriel to Tammi Smith and her husband, despite the fact that Gabriel’s father, Logan McQueary, loved his boy, and the courts granted custody to Logan.
Logan wanted his son back, and Tammi Smith never even bothered to look into that. She never considered the father at all.

The “adoption” deal with Tammi Smith eventually fell through, and suddenly one day, Gabriel was never seen again. Elizabeth says she handed her boy over to some strangers in a park. Authorities found no such people. The police and Gabriel’s father, think Elizabeth murdered her son.
Tammi Smith’s attorney defends his client by calling her, ‘just a good person.’
Tammi Smith says Elizabeth Johnson told her Gabriel’s father was abusive and she was running from him. Smith, a stranger to the family, took Johnson’s word and never investigated if baby Gabriel’s father was a good man or not.
Smith’s attorney says, “it’s in her nature to feel compelled to help, because of her religious beliefs, again because of her family background. She feels compelled to help, particularly when she perceives a woman in trouble or child in trouble.”
Prosecutors say Smith was obsessed with adopting Gabriel, and would do anything to get him.
Evidence shows that Elizabeth kidnapped Gabriel out of spite for Logan, and killed him because she didn’t want to take care of a child anymore.
It is unclear why the illegal adoption with Tammi Smith fell through.
