Elizabeth Johnson Competency Hearing Scheduled for Next Week

Categories: Judge and Jury
Elizabeth Johnson
Elizabeth Johnson, the mother of missing baby Gabriel Johnson, will be in court next week where a judge will rule on whether she's competent to stand trial on charges related to the disappearance of her 9-month-old son.

Johnson's been charged with kidnapping, child abuse, and custodial interference in the disappearance of the baby, who's been missing since December of 2009.

Johnson was initially ruled incompetent to stand trial in June of 2010. She was then ruled competent in September of 2010, but in May was ordered to undergo another psychological evaluation, the findings of which will be used to determine whether she's competent to stand trial.

Johnson has been in jail since January after she failed to show up to a December custody hearing.

Johnson, police say, disappeared with Gabriel and went to San Antonio, Texas, where the baby was last seen alive.

While on the run, Johnson sent text-messages to the baby's father, Logan McQueary, saying she had killed the baby and put his body in a dumpster.

She later recanted her claims and said she gave the baby to a random couple she met at a park in San Antonio.

When Johnson was first thrown in jail, Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio claimed she was the model inmate but has since changed his tune after Johnson allegedly assaulted other inmates and then refused to eat Joe's loaf.

For those that you believe Gabriel was killed at the hands of his mother, here is some food for thought:

Why did Elizabeth Johnson (EJ) go through the trouble of leaving the state of AX and driving several hours ALONE with a 7 month old just to go to Texas to kill her child?

Why kill your child in a state that believes in the death penalty, why not travel to a state that does not have that harsh of a punishment?

Why hire a babysitter while you are on the run with your child if your intent is to kill him?

Why go to several shelters seeking help if your unltimate plan was to get "get rid of the problem" by killing him? She did not want to kill him she wanted to adopt him out!

Why not kill the child and be done with it? Why drive all those hours alone with an infant then stay in TX on the run - heightening your risk of being located -  keep the baby with you for the duration of your stay in TX, just to hop on a bus about 6 days later without your child. Perhaps because that is how long it took for the paperwork for an adoption to take place?

Who did she meet in the hotel room.....with Gabriel! Perhaps the perspective new parents?

Why was Gabriels body never recovered in either the AZ or TX searches? Why do the police reports not indicate in any way that a murder took place, but on the contrary have hundreds of leads that point towards Tammi Peters Smith (TPS)  - which even EJ stated set up the meeting at Raymond Rimkus Park when Gabriel was handed off to these strangers just prior to hoping on the bus ALONE headed for FL.

If Gabriel was killed, the murder would have had to of taken place late Dec 26th early Dec 27th.  Gabriel was spotted on a Park Camera, so LE know he was alive up until the 26th, Oh, and let's not forget the pizza delivery boys. So, how is it possble that TPS could call Logan McQueary - Gabriel's father - and state  - or better wordered coerce - him into signing over his rights to her and her husband Jack Smith if he wanted EJ to return with Gabriel If Gabriel was dead, their would be no way EJ would bring back his body, admitting to the crime of murder AND no need to sign over his parental rights.

Also, int he police report, can't remember the tip number off hand, but it stated TPS called LE to say she thinks she knows where Gabriel is - ONE JANUARY 2nd! FIVE DAYS AFTER the handoff - of as some believe the killing. She stated it would take 5 days to bring him back. WHY 5 DAYS???? Because it takes 10 days for the paperwork  to go through for the adoption, which would make it hard for Logan to regain custody of Gabriel. Why would you have to wait 5 days to bring home a murdered child?

See, their are many reasons several of us believe Gabriel Scott Johnson is alive. Although EJ is a liar and has stated 1) she killed him and 2) she gave Gabriel to strangers in the park, she has never recanted the stranger story, but has recanted the murder confession. The story of the park has always remained consistent.  Lastly, on the day of the handoff, their was ELEVEN phone calls between TPS, JS and EJ around 10:00 a.m. - the time the hand off was to take place. Remember EJ stated TPS set up this hand off. Why the phone calls, Because EJ was being told where to go, how to get to the park and whom to look for. About 5 mins after the hand off JS called a relative of his - why? To confirm everything went smoothly perhaps? The same person he was talking to at the same time EJ was talking to TPS. Coincidence I THINK NOT!  Gabriel IS alive. Please do not write him off as dead. Please do not make him a statistic. We need to bring this child home to his daddy. It has been far to long.

Here are the police record on this case – which DO NOT indicate and evidence that Elizabeth Johnson murdered he child, but more so that Gabriel was the victim of an underground adoption allegedly set up by Tammi Smith and Jack Smith. Why Jack has not been charged with anything is beyond my comperhension. They are both guilty in my opinion. Anyway, here is the links to the police reports:

Lastly, to put the turns of events in this case into perspective read this CNN iReport. Very telling on whom Gabriel fell victim too…http://ireport.cnn.com/docs/DO...


Strange that you did not mention the Smiths who was trying to gain custody of her son. Tammi Peters Smith has also been charged. Elizabeth Johnson has stated that the Smiths set up the pick-up of the baby in the park. PI Ken Gamble believes the baby is  alive and newly releast phone records show that the Smiths may have been involved. Elizabeth Johnson journal also show the Smiths involvment. Both women are due in court next month. IMO Tammi Smith also needs to have an evaluation. The 230 page report shows how desperate Mrs. Smith was to get that baby.

Can't blame her for not wanting to chow down on "Joe's Loaf". That thing is pretty disgusting, come to think of it.  They say it contains cockroaches and worms in it.


Hopefully, the voters in Maricopa Co. will decide that they're sick of swallowing Joe's "Loaf" next year.
