In case you are unaware of this story, Elizabeth Johnson is standing trial in the disappearance of her infant son, Gabriel, who was taken by Elizabeth to get back at Gabriel’s father for his interest in other women.
The couple’s relationship was rocky when Elizabeth decided the way to get back at her boyfriend would be to take his boy out of state and threaten the child’s life. Gabriel’s 3rd birthday was in April.
Elizabeth is standing trial on charges of kidnapping, custodial interference, and conspiracy to commit custodial inference. The case might go to the jury today.
“She wants to get back at Logan, and she is upset, and she uses the one thing that would hurt Logan more than anything,”
Johnson, 26, plead not guilty to the charges. She faces up to 27 years in prison if convicted.
I am blown away that Elizabeth Johnson was not charged with child neglect, child endangerment, and aggravated child abuse.
Johnson told the boy’s father, Logan McQueary, that she killed Gabriel and put his body in a garbage dump. She then told authorities that she gave the boy to some unknown strangers in a park in some back alley type of child adoption scheme.
Baby Gabriel has not been found or seen since, and the mystery couple has never been identified, nor has Johnson disclosed any information to the police that would help find Gabriel.
If she did not kill her child, then she heartlessley gave him to some strangers in a park who could very well be sexually abusing the child, or who sold him to child sex traffickers. The people who took Gabriel could have taken him off to a foreign country where he is being physically abused, starved or worse.
I am totally perplexed over why prosecutors chose not to charge her with child abuse and child endangerment.
The face of this woman is why I call this Blog “Evil Sits at the Dinner Table.”
