ADD: Follow me on Twitter @CamilleKimball I'm tweeting this trial live inside the courtroom.
Logan McQueary, Gabriel's daddy, will testify today (Monday Sep 24-2012) I am in the courtroom. He will not be allowed to talk about Elizabeth Johnson's mothering skills; incidents where she trashed their apartment, broke windows and ended up in jail for criminal mischief; or that she did not want the baby. Follow me on Twitter to hear about it as it happens.
No matter what the verdict is at the end of her trial, young Elizabeth Johnson will go down in history as one of those most spiteful mothers in history. She thought her baby's father, a man to whom she was not married and was battling for custody, was "talking" to girls. So she skipped town with their 8 month old son and told the father, "I suffocated him and he turned blue." Then she stuffed him in his diaper bag, she continued, and tossed him a trash can.
She was leaving the country now, she said. "When im safe ill email u the exact location of dead gabriels little blue body. if the garbage dont come first."
She repeated this story to a detective but later recanted and said the baby had been "given" to a strange couple she met in a park.
The couple has never been found.
The baby has never been found.
The baby's father, Logan McQueary, called police as soon as he realized she was not joking and could not be found.
Tomorrow (Thurs Sep 20) Elizabeth who, one way or another, made her baby vanish in order to spite her ex-boyfriend, goes on trial. I'm in the courtroom starting today for a hearing on motions in her case.
