Alleged killers talked about corpse on Facebook?

A young couple reportedly partied at a bar after allegedly murdering a 19-year-old girl, then argued about how to dispose of her corpse in text and Facebook messages!

Disturbing last known photos of baby Gabriel just released

With each day that passes, hope is diminishing that baby Gabriel is still alive. And now newly released photos from Elizabeth Johnson’s camera have investigators and Gabriel’s own father very concerned. Arizona police say indicators giving them hope Gabriel is still alive are not as strong as they once were.

Newly released photos show the 6-month-old missing boy allegedly looking lethargic, sickly and his eyes drooping. And in another shocking twist, in at least two of the photos baby Gabriel is allegedly holding onto a medicine bottle. Investigators say the time stamp on 2 of the pictures is December 26, the last day Gabriel is seen alive and were taken at the Home Gate Hotel in San Antonio, Texas. Tune in tonight at 8pm ET to see the disturbing new photos.

In other developments, it looks like Gabriel’s mother, Elizabeth Johnson, has taken another 180 behind bars. Johnson reportedly tells her grandfather during a jailhouse visit, she will not help investigators find her baby boy because she’s facing serious jail time. According to Johnson, her lawyers have advised her to keep her mouth shut because helping police is not going to lessen the prison time she’s facing on the kidnapping charges alone. To date, prosecutors have now filed four formal charges against Johnson, the most recent, conspiracy to commit custodial interference. Johnson’s different stories are not helping the search and cops are now forced to work two separate investigations, missing persons and homicide.

At first, Johnson told the biological father, Logan McQueary, she killed the baby, then after her arrest she told investigators she gave the baby to a random couple she meets at a Texas park. But when pressed for a description of the couple, she doesn’t have one. When she’s extradited from Florida to Arizona, Johnson suddenly gives would-be adoptive parents, Jack and Tammi Smith, a full description of the mystery Texas couple. She even goes on to say the FBI has video of the couple taking Gabriel away in a new car seat. But Tempe police confirm there is no video! Besides, wouldn’t investigators have released it to generate leads to find this mystery couple and baby Gabriel? It’s been hard to keep all of Johnson’s different accounts straight, but what I do know is based on the mother’s alleged stonewalling, something terrible must have happened to Gabriel. Where is he?

    I hope and pray she has let someone have this baby, and they will turn him in to the authorites. Is there any way you could examine those photos zoom in on everything in the pictures and get some clue to where they were taken. This breaks my heart to think that anyone could do this to a defenseless little child. God Bless and please take care of him. Where is this child's Grandmothers.

    i saw the photos on the Today show and it looks like the baby has a cut on his head.. i hope nancy is able to show the photos. i still think that those "adoptive parents," the Smiths, know more. First they said they didn't know anything about anyone in Tennessee, then Mrs. Smithsaid that she called some people there about taking the baby. what is wrong with these people, they should have called the police or CPS when they found out that this girl was tryinhg to give away the baby. why would you try and adopt that way?

    I highly doubt the child is alive.
    Makes me sick that this mother or any mother could harm their precious baby but that's just the way this world is – SICK!

    Aaarrrggh!! Who lets these defense attorneys live while babies are being abandoned or killed? How can any human being walk into a jail and do nothing but advise their "client" to keep mum about a child's welfare?
    If our society could ever stomach treating these monsters like they deserve...
    Elizabeth Johnson should be put in a windowless cell for 7 days, no one allowed to defend her or protect her or "advise" her of all her precious rights, completely alone and seemingly abandoned, no food, no water, no communication of any kind. Then crack the door and ask her if she wants to help her son. No? Okay, lock the door again.
    But no, that's too cruel and unusual and would violate all her God-given rights in this world. She'll get all the help she needs and then some.
    Meanwhile, little Gabriel...we can only hope and pray you are alive and okay somewhere.

    Like the Anthony case, she seems to be getting off on the attention she is gathering.... why do parents do this?! why not just give your child away or drop him at a hospital? even if you wanted to be vindictive the child should be with his father... how can a mother feel more hate than love after giving birth to a beautiful baby full of innocence and live... this just sickens me.....

    This is absolutely sickening. I just hope that the Smith family are not involved in this. She seems to know so much. Elizabeth needs to be put away forever, for what she did to her son. There are so many parents out there that would love to adopt a child. I can't imagine what the father is going through right now.

    I don't understand why her attorney's would not want to know where the baby is and if she is saying she won't help because she is facing serious jail time that tells me she killed him, which is just breaking my heart how can a mother do that its not normal.. I would love to see her put in a room alone with some people and let them convince her to tell where the baby is and personally I wouldn't care what they did to get the information after seeing this picture My heart is so broke that baby deserves so much better

    With permission from Logan, and the family, I have setup a facebook group for Gabriel. If everyone could please join, and encourage there friends to join and do the same, we would greatly appreciate it. We still have hope that Gabriel is alive, and it takes just the right person to see his face and make all the difference. Please join his group!!

    i pray to god this doesnt turn out to be like another caylee anthony ending. how could gabriels mom just sit back and say nothing.? it's so frustrating to watch. it's hearbreaking to think if this precious baby boy is gone, the horrible way he must have spent his last days. shame!!!!! on her attny, for telling her to keep quiet, while only god know's where he 's at.i hope elizabeth and all her attnys can sleep at night, keeping silent.god- bless beautiful gabriel, and have no mercy on his MONSTER MOM.

    Why can't they reduce her sentence even if it's by 5-10 years all for that little boy's sake. And have the cops investigated the hotel's and cell phone history to see where she called last????? They should do more to investigate this case. Also, this trash of a person should be locked up for life after she helps!!!!!

    January 19, 2010 at 7:19 pm
  24. Zenaida Mlaska

    At first, I thought that the reason Elizabeth Johnson was so quiet was because she had turned the baby over to friends or to family members and she felt that she new for sure that baby Gabriel was ok and that in her sick mind somewhere she thought that all of this would blow over as the years past and that she would then be joined with baby Gabriel which was bad enough. But now I am thinking that she killed her baby. I hope that the police are going to start looking at the land fills, desert area's or anywhere else that Elizabeth may have disposed of Gabriel's body. It is clear that she is not going to cooperate with the police and it is time to move past Elizabeth and find out what truly happened to baby Gabriel so that peace can be brought to Logan and his family as well as to baby Gabriel.

    This is a deeply heart breaking situtation.

    If this Mother (if you can even call her that) gave this baby to a couple in the park, why in the world wouldn't she tell something about the car they were driving and give a description of them so that Baby Gabriel could be found. She would be looking at a lot less jail time probably and certainly would be cleared of homicide if her second story is true.

    My prayer is that Baby Gabriel is alive but I feel like that is not the case. If he is alive she would want him to be found to clear herself. Especially when it seems that is all she cares about anyway (Herself)

    January 19, 2010 at 7:32 pm
  26. Lenny

    I still believe the Smiths know where Gabriel is, or what Elizabeth was planning to do. We should have laws that allow "truth serum" be given to people like this deranged Mother. SOMEONE should know how to make this sicko talk! Let the Father tell her that he will not fight for custody....say whatever it takes. Just get her to talk.

    January 19, 2010 at 7:35 pm

    She just copied the reports of Casey Anthony. Lies to cops about giving child to someone, leads everyone to believe she gave the child too much medicine/drug, leaves note on myspace, just too many similarities. Then doesn't she flee to Florida too. I really think what she told the dad was the truth, sadly. She probably had a miserable Christmas, was spiteful and took it out on the baby. Another sicki psycho.

    Elizabeth Johnson needs her a** whooped! Put me in the cell with her for 5 and she will talk- What a horrible mother. How could anyone allow this piece of crap to even be in the prescence of a child. She is a disgusting human being and I hope she gets let into mass population in prison. Her punishment will never be enough if she harmed this child. There is a special place in Hell for people like her and I can't wait until she gets there.

    Who in tthe heck our her lawyers? If she gave the information and the child was found alive she wouldn't get the same sentence as a murder wrap. Shouldn't they encourage her to help the police to find the baby since it is his life that is in question? Shake the crap out f her until she talks~send her to guantanamo bay, I bet they could get the information from her!!!

    I agree that something needs to be done to get her to talk. I know it's unethical and probably illegal but lie to her, tell her they found his body, say something to rock her world and get that b**ch to talk. This is disgusting that our legal system is protecting her while the fate of Gabriel just hangs out there. I believe he is alive. If she did give him away, how could those people sleep at night? They must be sociopath's too and have no conscience. How could you steal someone's baby, call him your own and just go on with your life? I hope she wasn't sick enough to kill that angel. She clearly was abusing and neglecting him so unfortunately it is a possibility. PRAY FOR GABRIEL. THERE IS POWER IN PRAYER.

But most of all, carry this baby and all children in your loving arms.

    What is it with the recent outbreak of young mothers "allegedly" murdering their babies? Why don't they just give the baby up for adoption. How can any woman or any person be so cruel? There are so many people who want to adopt and are willing to jump through hoops in order to get that chance of having a child. You need a license to drive a car, 21 to drink alcohol, but anyone can have a baby and do as they please to children. How can this happen?? Why are the police taking so long to thoroughly investigate this case as a murder???

    I was watching your show one day and decided to look for elizabeth on myspace.. and i actually found her.. and she signed on myspace on Dec. 30 her last update was on Dec. 29 that A.M. also Mrs. Smith sent her a comment saying please read some messages that she sent saying read the ones that say baby Gabriel.. i dunno if this would help any.. but i noticed that a figured i would mention it to ya'll.. :) i pray that they find him alive.. i have an 8 month old and i just cant imagine any of that......

    I think this story is sick. This woman needs to be locked into a dark room with no light for the rest of her life. I have a baby the same age as Gabriel is, and everynight I cry and hold him closer to me. How could a mother ever do this to her child? It sickens me.

    This just blows my mind, Huge question, Why in the world did this babysitter who states " he was scared" she has never seen a baby this scared, he was dirty, had boogers on his nose AND there was a knife on the table in the room!!!!! Why in the world did she not call the police, or family services or report this. Hello I am a mother, if I saw this I would have reported this, something was wrong here would you not have the common sense to maybe tell someone, anyone at least have it looked into, at least. I just don't get it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    January 19, 2010 at 8:30 pm
  42. Judy

    I think she overdosed the baby on Tylenol and then put him in the diaper bag and threw him in the dumpster. The police should have searched that dumpster or kept it from being dumped until they found him elsewhere. Did they find the butcher knife the babysitter is talking about or the diaper bag in the hotel room? I just think if another couple had this baby they would have come forward by now.

It's sickening to watch the news everyday there is a new "mommy kills baby" case...what are these poor excuse for women doing? They are supposed to be there to love and protect their children not harm them. Some people believe our government uses torture tactics to get people to talk...maybe we should use them on Elizabeth Johnson and Casey Anthony!

    This is sickening & disgusting. The poor little baby is the innocent victim of a tramp "mother" – this was my take from day 1. How many more babies/children will be victims of evil sociopathic "mothers" that kill? And the bitch tells the so-called "father" she killed the baby. What is wrong with the law and police in this country?? The baby is gone -what in hell do you think the monster did with him?? I'm just sick.

    I am watching the show right now, as I always do and just had a thought.

    What are the time stamps on the photo's of the baby looking sleepy (possibly druged). I am curious to find out, if this was just before the babysitter came o sit with the baby. My thought is, maybe Elizabeth (don't want to call her mom), drugged this beautiful baby and hoped he's pass away on the babysitters clock (overdose). Then returned and maybe gave another dose after babysitter left and he did pass away on her time.

    These girls just make me sick. First Casey Anthony and now this one. Both of these girls had people who loved these kids that they could have left them with. Casey Anthony could have left Caylee with her parents, although now they are clearly covering for her. Elizabeth could have left Gabriel with his Dad. This couple who wanted to adopt this baby should have called the Dad and told them what Elizabeth was up to. If they really cared they would have went out and met her support system and further more they should have called police when she let them know that she was on the run. I have two little boys and I have been in the airport with them, one crying and the other just sitting, I can tell you that there has not been one time when someone approached me and asked me if I wanted to give them my child. Besides the fact that if a stranger did approach me I would get as far away as possible. This family is hiding something as well. Nancy I love the show and watch every night.

    this person reminds me of casey anthony. There are alot of women that fight to keep fathers away from their children just because they are no longer in a relationship. Also a child interferes with their social schedule so mothers become unattached and start to resent them.

    I believe the baby is alive...I think she took the six photos of the baby, hired a sister and then went to a library or somewhere with computer access and downloaded the photos to the "would be adoptive parents" I think this girl planned this whole trip out just to leave such a confusing trail no one will ever find the baby. I also believe whoever adopted this baby will never come forward because by now, they love him and legal or not, he's now their son.

    First of all – they should be threatening the dealth penalty to Elizabeth. Both Arizona and Texas has it, use it as a threat to her. Don't tell us where the child is, find the child dead, you get the death penalty. Someone who treats their child like she did and if he is dead then she certainly deserves it.

    Why can't the rules change for the children? If a child's life is in danger then why can't they use sodium pentathol on her? I know they have rights but so do these children. What about the little children who have these things happen to them without having a say as to their rights. I am so tired of adults treating children without care and concern and then scream about their rights.

    Love your show. You certainly know how to treat children. Enjoy them, they grow up so fast.

    Dear Nancy:
    Re: Baby Gabriel Johnston

    This is so heartbreaking!

    Tonight on your show, when you showed those latest pictures of baby Gabriel that the Mom took (if that is even the appropriate title for the woman), I noticed right away that the baby did not only have that "drugged up" look in his eyes, he also appears to be "yellowing"; a classic sign of liver failure. My heart sank. I'm now afraid that in her efforts to "shut him up", the poor starving little fellow probably drank that medicine all down very fast (all 30 doses) and I'm so afraid that he did either go into liver failure...or...stopped breathing from respiratory arrest. That is maybe why she then texted the father and said she "smothered" him, etc. etc. This doesn't look good at all now. I was so hopeful that someone was at least looking after him; but now... I have a feeling this is not the case.

    This brings back all the sadness of little Caylee all over again. What the heck is with mothers today??!!!

    If Elizabeth is worried about getting charged with kidnapping is there anyway Logan can make a plea to Elizabeth ( him working with police) that he won't charge her with kidnapping or lessen the charges if she can help police find the baby? Or will police charge kidnapping even if Logan drops the charges? I mean I would rather have my baby back ultimately and if I had to choose between charging the person with kidnapping or dropping the charges and them telling me where the child wasa... I wouldn't care about charges if I found my baby. I know some situations with sexual abuse etc police will charge the offender even if the victim drops the charges. Is that the case with kidnapping or can Logan bargain with Elizabeth using the dropped charges as a tool to get her out of jail to have her help find the baby?

    I do not trust the smith family what so ever, they are both liars and have contradicted themselves on a few different occasions, I hope Gabriel is still alive and that he is being well taken care of, Also the person who posted this might want to check their work before submitting, he is 8 months old NOT 6 months old.

    Does not sound too promising. I will say prayers for that family and my heart goes out to the father. She apparently is very mentally ill and is socially and mentally sick. So very sad and looks like another Casey Anthony.

    Has ne 1 checked bank accounts? For deposits or ne thing suspicious???
    The mothers,grandparents, and the smiths????
    I think she has sold the baby, maybe wealthy people or maybe to someone across the border...
    This beautiful baby is in my prayers*

    Why is nonone looking at this stupid babysitter? She advertises on Craigslist as a professional babysitter.And yet here is she is on TV telling this story of what happened. If I am watching a child who she claims is dirty, seems scared and wants to be held all the time, hardly any food for him and a BUTCHER KNIFE on the night stand , hello I think I am calling police , someone , anyone because something is not right.But she does nothing but go on TV and tell this story, I would never show my face. She is probably the last person to see this beautiful child alive.She needs charged with something!! Please people DO NOT hire this girl to watch your children!! And besides who the heck hires a babysitter on craigslist ????????????

  62. Kathy M.

    She claims she killed the baby and put him in a diaper bag and disposed of him. Has a diaper bag shown up in any of the items that were found either in the car or hotel room/s? Or did she then claim she gave the diaper bag away with the baby?

    I don't care how smart folks say this horrible person is, someone ought to verbally scare the daylights out of her and get her to crack. Why the heck isn't her grandfather there in that jail coaxing her to talk?
    Where are all her family members/friends? Someone has to be able to get to her. Live or dead, this innocent baby needs to be found, no matter what it takes.

    My heart is breaking for this child, as it still does for little Caylee Anthony. These so-called mothers don't have a clue. I pray for justice for these angels. Thank you.

    I appreciate your show. Until I watch your show I had no idea of the abuse children and women receive in this country. It is so hard to believe that a young mother would give or harm her own child. Thank you for bring this to are attention and speaking for those that are missing.

    I don't understand women who do harm to their children. She had many chances to adopt the child out, get an abortion early on in her pregnancy, or how about making the man wear a condom in the first place? Men and women who feel thoughts of hurting their children need to get help!! If you can't love your child then at least let someone else have that privilege.

    It is simple what they need to do to this mother. Let the father of the baby spend a few hours alone in a cell with her !!! I bet he could make her tell what she did with the baby.

    That mother is sick and she makes me sick! There are couples out there who can't even get pregnant or have tried and had plenty of miscarriages who would have adopted that little adorable baby! I am one of those people who was 20 weeks pregnant and gave birth to my second baby boy and he didn't make it. I don't understand why those of us who try so long and hard to get pregnant can't get pregnant and people like Elizabeth Johnson can do that to their poor little baby! I don't understand it. She needs the death sentence! By not cooperating with investigators, she is only making her sentence more worse!

    This woman is evil. I don't think she has "mental" issues, I think she has "spite" issues against her boyfriend. I personally feel she has killed this child as she first stated to the father... I hope I am wrong, but this appears to be the case.
    WHY aren't the police investigating this not only as a missing child, but as a possible homicide? Looking for every lead before it's too late. This child's body could be anywhere, but at least check the "known" places where she has been for clues/a body!
    I hope the women in prison with her beat the crap out of her & sterilize her themselves, where "if" she ever does get out, she can't do another baby this way!
    So sad... we are praying for you in Alabama Gabriel!

    Why didn't the baby sitter call the police or Child Protective Services when she saw the child being mistreated?!?!?!?!?! I think she should be charged as an accessory to this child's senseless murder. She saw the baby being fed an un-measured amount of Tylenol. She basically took her $20-$30 to look the other way. Unbelievable!!!!!!!!!!

    The photos are disturbing to me, after looking at them for a long period of time, I think the mom took these to remember how she killed her baby or maybe give authorities the evidence they wanted. The photos seem to tell the story, the first one with the baby holding the medicine bottle, then him drinking from a little baby bottle which is a medicine dispenser bottle is nearly almost full ( thats not what a normal amount looks like in those bottle). Then the last one of him nearly passed out from all the meds. He looks extremely drugged and she probley overdosed him, he was probley so starved that the only thing she fed him was the medicine, ive never known a baby to want to drink that much medicine out of those bottles unless they were starving. . I hope that im not right and that he is with a loving family.... Sweet baby gabriel.... your in my thought and prayers

    attatchment disorder. - nancy, you have not mentioned this. It is my understanding that the mother was in foster care which often results in "ad" when they have their own children. I have had foster children and can say this is a real problem. Check it out please because it goes beyond this case.

    Nancy, why didn't the babysitter contact the police when she was told to drug Gabriel?: why didn't she report this????? Good grief it doesn't take a rocket scientist to know something was wrong with the whole picture. I am sickened that the baby sitter didn't do something. And also, where is this stupid girls parents? all I have seen is her grandfather. and the father of Gabriel, come on what is his problem?? if he knew she was such a bad mother why wasn't his butt in an attorneys office fighting to protect his son? where are his parents. And i can tell you this, as a mother and my daughter did something like this all they would need to do would give me 5 minutes with her and I assure you she would be talking... might be with my hands on her throat but by God she would be talking. 5th adment BS .. 5 minutes maybe less. and why is the grandfather sitting on his couch.. get your butt up off the couch and show up at her cell. old man,... this is just BS

    Babysitter could have called hotline, cpd or police based on her observations and, thus, saved this poor baby's life. Condtions in the room, the sick baby, drugged, the knife-not normal. As I teacher,I was mandated to reoort everything sispicious. Enery sase is investigared. The babysitter was observant, but derilect in her duty. Had this been done, he would now be in protective custody.

    I pray for this beautiful child. They should use the old methods to get her to talk. She is a selfish girl that dosent need a child, if the baby was in danger why didnt the father just play along with her until he could get him. more tax dollars on another case. If she killed him< i hope they give her death. put her in a room with some mom's that care for one hour, she'll talk,she might need to go to the hospital but she would talk. I thank she druged him and through him away to die.

    This whole situation makes me sick. They keep saying that the mother has a really high IQ etc... Although her "IQ" may be high she is still an idiot. If she were smart she would have been able to be grateful for that baby. I hate to say it but as each day goes by the probability of that baby being alive is very small. I keep hoping and praying for him and his father but...there is something sick you see in that mothers eyes and the way she carries herself. She is a sick ,self absorbed ,selfish ...human being. I pray for the father and for that beautiful little baby. I hope all ends well and that "mother" gets what she deserves. No matter how bad the punishment!
    GOD is looking over you Baby Gabriel.

    Because of stupid people like this, makes me wonder if all children should have a GPS system installed. It use to be when we kept an eye open on our kids playing on the front yard from the kitchen window. Today we have to watch family members, husbands, wifes, friends, and church leaders from within the house. The percents for this cases are higher and higher each year. What can we do as a whole about the problem? Keep watching Nancy Grace, even from here, Baja California, Mexico. Thanks to you Nancy, my wife and I are more educated in "what to look for" when we are visiting, driving or just shopping. Maybe we all should became the GPS systems for this kids.

    I wonder why she stayed on the North Side of S.A. near the airport? Then end up at the Motel 6 on the South Side. This area is across the South Park Mall area, and also the Mission Park churches and area for tourist. I have my father who lives in the area, and Military drive has become a very congested area-with outdoor taco stands ( two groceries HEB's with busy parking lots.) It also is the hwy.35 straight into Laredo TX. Since it was Christmas time many of the dumpsters are filled by passerby's dumping boxes etc. after Christmas. My 92 year old dad lives across a
    business area, and people dumped garbage in the dumpsters after hours at night. I have never written to no kind of tv, but I watch your show all the time. My prayers are still this little baby is alive.

    It would be great if Gabriel's female parent could go into GP. There was a former pastor (not priest) in Granite, OK, Oklahoma State Reformatory, who was killed in prison. The word was that he ran into a relative of a victim. Yes, yes, send her to GP and I hope they have been able to see TV or somehow find out about her. If I have correct info, the inmates there may not have such access, but I know word travels in any prison or jail. I'm rooting for your stance. Thanks

    If that baby is not alive then, shoot the b–ch, no thats to fast, just stone her to death, that way were are all sure that she suffers a lot before dying. Every person who harms a child should be stoned to death. I don't care what state it is, they should have that law, to justify for the harm of that or those children. There is no EXCUSE for child abuse of any form. It makes me so angry when I hear these sort of things.
    If the baby is alive then who ever has him should have enough brains to turn him over to the police, if they don't have that common sense the I pray that they find him as fast as possible, because who ever has him, are not good people, the are as evil as she is.

    I was hoping that the police would have started checking dumpsters as soon as she made that comment to the Bio Dad. I only hope this little boy is still alive and that he is reunited with his dad.

  90. LuAnn

    Lynn...I pray you are right...perhaps she did take pictures and go to a library computer to send them to adoptive parents. I wonder if the police have contacted the libraries in the area to see if they remember her?

    In my heart though I feel that the baby is dead because he looks very neglected and drugged in the pictures and has a "failure to thrive" look. It could have been an accidental overdose that killed him but sigh...I hope I'm wrong and that you're right in your theory.

    January 19, 2010 at 11:30 pm

    I just hope that he is still alive and who ever has hand him over. I am sure his daddy wants him back home where he belongs and his grandparents too. HE need be home with his family and not with someone that his mom want she know what she did is wrong taking him away from is dad...

    I don't know why, but I'm feeling a little more hopeful after I was looking through the pictures and I noticed that Baby Gabriel is not in the same outfit when he's groggy as he is when he's drinking the bottle of baby tylenol. Don't know why, but this gave me some glimmer of hope. I am praying that he is alive and there's a couple somehwere so desperate to have a child that they are keeping him in hiding. I remember hearing from the Smith's or someone on Nancy Grace that said she had found a couple that said they could keep him hidden where no one could find him. I think that someone in San Antonio could have easily taken him into Mexico.

  96. Michele

    I agree with what someone else said, Prosecutors need to throw the death penalty into the mix...unfortunately, without a body, and with the lies she is telling, that wouldn't fly at this juncture. If she harmed that baby, she needs the death penalty...IMO, I don't care what mental issues she has, what postpartum issues she has, if she harmed that baby, then she needs to be put down like a sick dog. Boy oh's times like these that I wish I were the judge and she waived her right to a trial...I would make sure baby Gabriel got justice.

    It seems like all these young mothers are copying each other; there's Casey, Haleigh, Gabriel, the list goes on and on. If they don't want their precious, innocent little babies, they should adopt them out or leave them at a hospital, not abuse them, or kill them, or use them to get back at a father or someone else. So wrong. These little children do not deserve what's happening to them.

    January 19, 2010 at 11:50 pm
  98. MomOfMany

    I just watched Nancy's show ( missed the earlier edition) I have a few things to comment on, admit and wonder about

    First, other then the baby sitter saying Gabriel was dirty, where is there proof that this child is filthy and not taken care of physically? Those pictures on Nancy's show tonight looked like he had a clean face, clean jumpers and clean pajama's on, and his hair looked clean and shiny. If they were all taken the same day,she changed him several times, For someone that just doesn't care, that seems odd. Maybe my tv screen automatically deletes filth on faces. Trust me I'm not backing Elizabeth, not one bit, but I think to blow up something that seems by proof of pictures is untrue, is wrong just to make something more dramatic.

    The baby looks miserable I will say, but of those out here that have had children and have gone thru teething with them, how many of you had babies that were teething , be all smiley ,giggly and happy looking. If you did you're lucky ,not one of my "8" did ,EVER! If anyone recalls in one of Nancy's last week shows, per the baby sitter Elizabeth also told her that there was ORA-GEL there for Gabriel along with the Tylenol so apparently he is teething. A couple of mine would get those rosey, chaffed cheeks too when teething. AND I Gave them Tylenol. They all were also more interested in sucking on a bottle vs eating their food too. They're all over 20 yrs old now so I guess it didn't hurt them!

    Also how many mom's out there dont' know that as babies grow they thin out somewhat? They get longer so that chubby baby fat starts to go towards height vs roundness. Baby Gabriel has some cute chubby cheeks. He doesn't look like he's not been fed to me . Didn't that babysitter say there was food and formula.? And I think it's been over looked that Elizabeth was in a Motel. Not all have full kitchen facilites in each room to have bags of groceries around. She surely had food and formula there for him per the babysitter

    My Biggest question is about LOGAN. WHY WHY is Elizabeth so determined to keep this child from him. I think it's going beyond just that she dislikes him. I think this needs to be dug into. AND SOON. I've yet to see any of his family come forward about Gabriel. I have yet to see him be very emotional. No one has mentioned , that I've heard at least, anything about what has he done that makes Elizabeth feel this strongly? Something is wrong and I think alot would come to light if Logan was investigated by talking to people Elizabeth is close to, and generally seeing what kind of guy he is and go back Quite a ways I'm praying Baby Gabriel is alive and well, and being taken good care of, but if you think on it, even though it's absolutely awful to say about your child, what else could she have said to Logan that would hit him like a ton of bricks other then what she said. Seems that she thought up the worse thing in the world to say to someone to get even or back for something. I pray to our Lord that she didn't really do what she said. and it was totally wrong of her to say or make up such "a beyond words" awful thing, if it was for shock treatment.
    I personally had to hide out with my 4 oldest children when they were 5, 3, 15 mos and 3 months. I packed them up and snuck out and hid for months. I even had my car hidden and repainted as I didnt' want to be spotted, after being threatened that if I ever left I'd be found and would "Pay" I'd say also that "Over my dead body" would he see them and I meant it with all my heart. He was physically abusive, alcoholic and found him hiding drugs. You say things when you're mad, upset, and at your wits end. I didnt' go around telling people, but there was something behind what I did, by taking off and hiding myself and my children. This could be the case with Elizabeth too, on why she's out to hide Gabriel. You just never know what's not made public or made general knowledge. I never told my friends , family or even my parents all I went through.So many may not know what went on behind their closed doors. I know exactly what went on behind mine and I wouldnt' wish it on anyone !

    To Much Time has passed now and the case is getting more Bizzare.
    I do think the police need to put more pressure on her and do it now! Find out where this baby is. I dont feel he is with us still now. They need to take other avenues to find when and where.

    January 20, 2010 at 12:39 am
  101. Lisa Vetovich

    one more thing, she is what 23 or 24 and she cant handle a baby IM 20 years old and i have a 2 year old i gave birth to my son when i was 18 if i can handle it she should have no problem also and i went though postpartum, this is complete b.s., that she had to either kill him or give him away, the baby don't need to suffer b.c shes love sick over the father and he wants nothing to do with her. the poor man himself prolly new she was psycho

    What is wrong with these women? Give the baby to someone ,even police station and walk away. Don't take a innocent life away for revenge of lovers or family. Something is wrong with this world when you turn on tv and find out a mother killed thiere own child.

    What ever that babysitter has to say now, is too littl, too late!! When she arrived at that hotel, she knew something wasn't right!! She knew that poor baby was in trouble, and did NOTHING to help him. She should have called the police, an ambulance, or someone to help him!! Why she didn't...I just don't understand...she was his last hope!!! She let him down. I hope she feels guilty...she should.

    If she gave him to such a "trustworthy and nice" couple, why aren't they coming forward to police?? Any normal person would have called police and given the baby back.

    Well I am sickened my the actions of this mom. Nothing is that bad to hurt or kill your baby. I am a mom of 3 and I have let my lil baby hold a medicine bottle. The dropper is apealing to the teething baby. Of course I made sure is was not able to open. As well as not leaving her unattended with it. Also I don't think the baby looks skinny or dirty. I have tons of pics of my kids looking sleepy-eyed and sick when they haven't been. I love the nancuy grace show but @ times I think she inflates things a closing I hope and pray for the family of this baby that they will see him again soon, alive! My prayers And possitive energy I send for a swift resolution.

    Nancy I watch your show all the time and I enjoy your getting right to the point of the matter.My question is if anyone has talked to the grandmother .And if not,why not.I know they said her grandmother called while the baby sitter was there.Do they even know where she is and if maybe she knows where the baby is.She could even have him.This is such a sad situation but just because she had such a sad life was no reason for this beautiful little boy to suffer.My prayers are that he is found alive and soon!!

    I still think the baby is alive. Just a gut feeling but since she was doing so much selling on craigslist, maybe she sold her baby there too. I have seen ads before on there for people wanting to adopt babies. I am not sure how legal it all is, but I did a google search on "craigslist wants to adopt child" and there are ads on there. In this case, it would be unlikely that the bio mom would know who these people really are. How did they know to meet her at the hotel, if it wasn't prearranged? And if it was pre-arranged, they might not be from San Antonio at all. To me staying at the hotel close to the airport could be a big clue, especially if she has prior arrangements made. Perhaps they placed her in that hotel close to the airport, so they could leave quickly. In that case there would be video of the baby at the airport someplace. Maybe the airlines keep a record of couples with a baby on the last day the baby was seen and next day.
    How hard would it be to go to Texas without knowing someone and find adoptive parents in that short of time.

    I think y'all are missing the boat on Elizabeth Johnson's "appointment". I theorize that the "appointment" was a prostitution call. The timeline fits. Baby sitter arrives late, she answers the door angry because she might miss her "John". She's dressed provocatively and stays gone for approx two hours around the lunch hour. Perhaps a nice free lunch and a romp in the hay for some of that money nobody can figure out how she got. SHe comes back to the Motel room happy,,,

    This story just breaks my heart...I am a mother of three girls ages 15, 4 and 1. I have a couple of things to say...I am NOT defending her in ANY WAY...but...The pictures of the baby that has everyone so upset...I just dont see it...I have taken millions of pics of the girls and I have taken shots of them between blinks that may them look like they lethargic or "out of it"...He has a outfit on and a hat...His color is good...his eyes may be a lil weak in some, but maybe he was tired at the time the pic was taken...he is wearing what looks like PJ's...?!?! The other pic of him with the passy in his mouth and Tylenol bottle in his hand...I never did it before until my last baby...She wouldnt take a passy or anything except she would chew on the end of the Tylenol bottle (the dropper end)...not sure why (the bottle was empty of course), But she loved it and has now moved onto teething on a toothbrush?!?!!? I am just saying ...I think we are all "looking" for reasons to hate her even more...It is just a thought?!?! I hope and pray the little boy is alive and safe...God Bless little Gabriel!!!

    I think they should give her sodium penthathol, so what with her rights. We have to help this child first.
    Also, if she did kill him, maybe she took the body on the bus trip to maimi and dump it some where along the way or when she got down there. Are they checking out those areas to and talking to others who were on the same bus.I hope they do find him alive.

    oh how i feel for this child i wish someone could have saved him. I hope he is still alive so he can be reunited with his father. those pictures broke my heart. how can someone do that to their own child? Why would she do that why would she take pictures like that? to send to the father to prove a point? she is sick. she needs to say where the baby is. and then she should spend the rest of her life locked up and if it ends up she did kill gabriel she needs to die and suffer like that poor baby did. he didnt even have a chance no wonder he cried within her presence she terrified him. i wish the babysitter did call police while she was watching gabriel

    i also pray that she gave the lil one to a good family...but if they were a good family i think we would know where baby Gaberial is....The whole world is looking for this child...and if he is still alive then someone has got to come forward....i hope they love him enough too

    Let the waterboarding begin. If I were on a jury, I would fantasize about frying this mother in the electric chair. Let her loose in the general population when she gets to prison. Hopefully they'll take care of business. This is exactly why we need to start sterilizing people. Screw our American rights, these kids deserve better.

    I've just viewed the recent photos of Baby Gabriel. I agree he looks sleepy in the last two photos, but what i did notice, is that he is clean, wearing different clothes and pajamas, that look new. I also see she has a little hat on him. Could it be the room was cold and if so, since it's Winter, this would seem to indicate that she cared enough about her child to try to keep him warm and perhaps also knows that it's important to keep a baby's heads warm . Maybe she had him on Tylenol also because he had a cold. If what the babysitter said was true, and Elizabeth Johnson told her,. "if he starts crying, give him more Tylenol to stop him from crying and make him sleepy. This would sadly, be very scary.

    Contrary to what the babysitter said, he didn't look skinny or dirty, if these are the last photos taken of him. I've also thought they could be pictures she took of him to send to people she might have wanted to give him to for adoption. Although this girl is really disturbed and not thinking clearly, I somehow also still believe she, in her own strange way, honestly would not want to harm her baby. If she was so detached from her baby, and didn't care about the baby, I don't think she'd arrange for a babysitter at all. She would have just left him in the room by himself as she went out for those few hours. She supposedly even told the babysitter when to give him his feeding. Most psycho's or people who could care less about their child, would fail to even give this type of instruction to the babysitter.

    She also could have just left the baby with the sitter and hopped on a bus or taken off in her car then, if she didn't care or want the baby. It seems she DOES or DID care enough to place the baby with SOMEONE. I'm hoping and praying she is not another of those women who vindictively, and spitefully kill their baby.

    I don't know why, but I just don't think Elizabeth Johnson killed little Gabriel. As I said in an earlier blog, Why can't someone have her submit to Sodium Penathol when the life and safety of her baby is at stake. I do not believe she is thinking clearly. She sounds like she needs a psych evaluation and medication. Has she had a breakdown due to postpartum depression? Is she being treated or given an medical examination?

    I could be wrong, but somehow, I just feel little baby Gabriel is still alive somewhere. Why don't they offer a REWARD not monetary/PROMISE of some sort for the return of the baby, and a promise to the people , whomever may have him , that they will NOT be held responsible for any charges as long as they bring him to the proper authorities? If people do have him, they might do something stupid,out of fear, and somehow put little baby Gabriel in harms way.

    I just hope the FBI and all the authorities in this case FIND a way to convince Elizabeth Johnson to cooperate in the search for her baby. Maybe even her lawyers could convince her by offering a way to assist her in helping her find suitable, adoptive parents for her child LEGALLY, if she offers to cooperate?

    I close, by saying prayers for little baby Gabriel's SAFE,HEALTHY AND HAPPY return SOON!

    My question on this is what about the "large" backpack she had when she boarded the bus? Could it not be possible that the baby was in it? If so, it could be a matter of any stop the bus made and she got off or when she arrived in Florida to dispose of the baby. I hope and pray this is not the case but it is a possability. Has anyone looked into this?

    I dream at night about this child being found. I wonder if her attorney does the same. I still have not given up that the baby is alive.

    On one side, Tammi was so sure Elizabeth would bring the baby back if Logan signed the papers. Tammi also scolder Elizabeth for telling Logan she (EJ) killed the baby and then LE got involved. The first interview on NG the Smiths said all they could to trash Logan. I believe they believed they would still get Gabriel.
    Why San Antonio? Her trip was planned. Did she find another couple on the Web? We know EJ did have an appointment. With whom? She took pictures maybe to show the child to the propective parents. No pictures taken at Six Flags or at the park.

    Could this couple not adopt through regular chanels? Maybe there is a reason why the couple needed to get a child this way. This brings on more concern. Our biggest hope is a family, friend or neibor will see this baby.

    On the other side, Elizabeth seem to be in a state of,' my life is ruined'. She can't bond with anyone. Her plan is to begin a new life. Without Logan, without Gabriel or her family. It is over for her without looking back. She needed to get rid of Gabriel anyway possible and hurt Logan anyway possible. A person who would cut up clothes and damage furniture show a very distrubed state of mind.

    I don't think she is looking for attention I think she wants a different life. Well Elizabeth you got it.

    I would really like to know what ideas the police have for this case. I would put a pregnant snitch in her cell who would play a roll of a mother who didn't want the unborn baby. This girl only thinks she is smart and I'm sure that she can be undone. The laws need to be changed. She should be found guilty until proven innocent in this case. She was the last known person to be seen with her son. This mother is no mother at all. My heart goes out to the father who may have his faults but appears to be a loving and caring man.

    This woman is sick, her lawyers are as sick for coaching her into lying. The Scottsdale couple (I live in AZ) are just as twisted for not assisting, or lying, or covering up. Trust me, the father is a jacka** too but he at least knew when to draw the line. I can't STAND this kind of stuff anymore! When did it become acceptable for people to do this kind of stuff with no remorse, no guilt??

    This story makes me physically sick. I am sure this beautiful little boy has been killed by this freak of a woman. If she did give Gabriel to a couple it would be very hard for them to just hide him away from the world. This story is big and I am sure there would be people around them that would question where this baby looking like Garbiel all of a sudden came from. I pray that the police do whatever it takes to get a confession from this woman so that there is some resolution for everyone involved. I could care less what they have to do to get this biatch to talk. She had better fry for this! Who could do this to a beautiful innocent baby? Also, I watched Nancy interview the babysitter and I can't for the life of me understand why she did not call police when she said that the mother looked like a crazy person when she answered the door and then admitted she drugged him up with Tylendol She also said he was dirty and obviously very unhappy and not well taken care of. HELLO! Get him some help!

    The woman appears to be a sociopath who is focused on herself and not capable of telling the truth, exactly like another young "mother" who is sitting in jail right now. If Gabriel is alive, I do believe the Smiths know much more than they are revealing, because they have already shown that they cannot be trusted. I continue to pray that the little guy is safe.

    This woman deserves the electric chair for what she has done. And where are her parents in all of this and what do they say. What a beautiful little boy.

I am just astounded that a mother at any age couldn't look at him and do the same........SICK I hope she goes to hell for what she has done!!!!

    This woman should be forcibly steralized. It doesn't matter at this point if she gave the child away or killed it, she should never be allowed another child again. I hope they find him alive.

    This child's mother is not worthy to even be called that. This precious child better be alive or she is in for a much longer life sentence that jail. She is young, dumb and foolish to think just because she'll do time whether he is found or not, that it isn't important to share where he may be or whom he may be with. Foolish, foolish girl. She must have mental problems also because no human who can think clearly and make sound decisions would act this way and do the things she is doing.

    Too much time has passed & I believe baby gabriel is dead. I think if there was a couple that "adopted" the baby, they would have come forward by now, especially since this case has been on the news every day. Why would a couple she just met keep this a secret. I pray for the best but with Elizabeth not giving any information that could help find Gabriel– tells me she has too much to hide.

    January 20, 2010 at 11:00 am

    I check in everyday for the latest developments in the Baby Gabriel case. It has me so upset and frustrated. All that little boy did was love his mother and father. To hear he was sad and scared breaks my heart. I pray he is alive but fear he is not. His mother should never be allowed to forget her son. Whatever happens to her, she deserves, and I hope the judge requires her to keep a picture of Gabriel in sight every day for the rest of her life. She may have hoped to forget about that little boy but she should remember him, what she did and think about it for the rest of her life. What she has done will haunt others forever.

    There are no words to describe this baby breeder. I can't even call her an animal because animals don't treat their off springs in this manner.
    What really baffles me is the sitter. She certainly is old enough (18), and even discussed the baby's condition in the interview, to figure out that something was very wrong. She knew that there was a custody battle over this child. When Elizabeth left, why didn't the sitter take the baby to the front desk of the motel and tell them to call the police? She could have even called the police herself with her cell phone. Just about every teenager has one. The sitter certainly had a few options and did nothing! I believe the sitter's only concern was to get paid. She had an obligation to that child because he was left in her care. I think she should be held accountable for child neglect also.

    January 20, 2010 at 11:02 am

    Good points! I say the same thing. Starve her and leave her alone with her own thoughts for a while and she'll come around or starve to death. And at this point who would care? She doesn't care enough about the baby to say what really happend so no one should be concerned about her welfare.

    She does not deserve the title "mother". This story gets more and more devestating. She took those pictures on purpose, trying to prove "something" . Why would you drug a baby and take his picture?? None of this makes any sense.

    It is so sad to see a beautifull child taken away because of a selfish low selfesteem monster , There is no other way then to describe her. I pray for that beautifull child knowing that he might not be here. Please give this woman the longest hardest life behind bars let her know that what she is doing is just a selfish act. Areal mother is someone who would cut off there right arm to protect there child not harm them i dont know what u would call her let god deal with her. I pray there is still hope this child is still breathing. I am a single mom I know really hard tuff times but never in my mind would i hate her father he made my daughter too and i thank him for that , pray for that beautifull child .

    Can someone tell me about the surveilence videos at these motels. Apparently they seen her on video with the baby, and then they see her heading the bus stop with no baby in tow. Is there not a video of her leaving the motel with a large diaper bag that would hold an 8 month old baby? Or a video of someone leaving the motel with the baby in tow? Do we have video of this babysitter showing up at the motel? Something about the babysitter not sitting right with me, not that I have reason to believe she harmed the baby but at 18 years old and all of the red flags about the baby she has voiced on TV and yet she did nothing. I dont get it! Did she not watch the news and know that this mother was on the run with the kid?

    If we believe she is guilty of killing this baby and she had the baby and then she didnt have the baby how far could she have gone with this childs body? Why do we not hear anything about the search for this child and what has been searched and where the search has taken place. We know the mother is in jail and not cooperating and not talking, we know that she more than likely killed this baby, we know that the dad wants the baby back, but why are we hearing so little about what they are actually doing to find the baby.

    One more comment, Did I miss something about the so called "nice" couple that she met at the park and supposedly gave the baby to. There was talk about why the carseat was still in the car and not with the baby, and she claims the couple brought a brand new carseat. I thought she just stumbled upon and met this couple in the park and gave the baby away, how did they know they were going to meet a mother in a park with a baby. They just happened to have a carseat? Did I misunderstand something or miss some facts completely?

Enough is enough on these child killers.There is a special place in hell for her and casey Anthony..and its not a pretty site.There are ways of making ppl talk.Why dont they somehow trick her into talking .Or bring the mob in ,and beat it out of her..Oh she will glad to.Its sad.that selfish little $#@^ like her,can get away with what she has.I say put her out of her misery.God bless baby Gabe.If hes gone,at least she cant hurt him anymore..I have nothing for her,but hate.

    just saw the pictures of baby Gaberial, just cause his eyes are druppy doesnt mean his medicated up, he could be tired as well. and she took a pic while he was tired, however i really do hope he is ok, and they do find him, i personaly agree with most of these comments on her about her, she needs to be locked up and put away, its very sad how people do these things to their own child. its just crazy, theres good people out in this world that try to have a baby and they just cant do to medical issues. then we have these phyco's on here that pop them out like nothing and treat them like nothing, its really sad, i also believe in the eye for eye punishment. also she isnt going to talk cause as long as they cant find him, they cant really pin a murder charge on her with out a body. it will be hard to charge, so that is why the attrny, is keeping her quite, cause she cant get any worse punishment out of this with out a body or hard evidence showing she killed him. so by staying quite she is keeping her self from the death penlty, cause if she did kill him and they do find him, or the evidence then u know damn well they will go for the death penalty.

    If this baby is dead, Society, police, courts & gov't should also be to blame. A baby, a little child can not defend itself against murdererss, rapist & pedifiles. Yet our courts & laws protect ALL Individuals. So innocent to proven guilty & take the Fifth is BULLSHIT. We are Not created equal. An 8th month old child and other children should have more laws & protection than adults. This mother , the minute cops had here should have been given a harmless truth serum & spilled the beans. Were is the logic & common sense in our society & laws. ENOUGH.

    No baby deserves to be brought into this world and mistreated the way baby Gabriel was. Does anyone know if she wanted to give him up for adoption when he was born? I have a nephew who was born 2 days after Gabriel and it breaks my heart after I watch Nancy Grace to know that Gabriel still hasnt been found alive. Its a sick world we live in.

    I'm curious as to why she would be taking pictures of her child before she supposedly killed him. If someone is either going to commit an intentional homicide or is neglecting a child, they're not very likely to be whipping out the camera to take photos. People take pictures of their precious, loved children, not ones that they are planning atrocities for. This makes no sense to me.

    I believe in my heart this baby is still alive.. I have been following this case every since the beg.
    I want to know if any one has checked bank accounts/bank records of Elizabeth Johnson, The smiths, or even the grand-paretns.. i think this baby has been sold. And/or even checked the recfords for months befor, to see if any suspicious deposits have been made.
    And something else suspicios id the last place this baby was seen in Texas.. Why texas?? It's so close to the border.. Maybe she sold baby Gabrielle to a couple across the border!
    This baby is in my prayers* he is sooo Beautiful-

    I seen the photos and the one with the medicine bottle makes me sick!! I personally thought it looked like benedryl in the bottle not tylenol....which would make sense why he looked dopped up. I also noticed that he had a bottle of purple tylenol in his had in one photo. She was probably giving him both. I have a sick sick feeling that she has sold her child in some kind of illegal adoption scheme.

    Her defence lawyer knows Gabriel is dead. Therefore there's no purpose tocooperate with the cops and like any lawyer would do under this circumstance, is to advise his client not to speak.

    I wonder if police put the time between the call from grandmother & the call the mother place to the father together? I think that after she had spoke with grandmother she had called Gabriel's daddy with the made up story that she had killed Gabriel. I also dont think she killed Gabriel because why go thru the trouble of finding a babysitter to watch him if her plans was to kill him? She has told that she was on the run with Gabriel & I am betting that in the local paper in Arizona where she lived was personal ads for adoptions & she went thru there & found someone to take Gabriel & met them in San Antonio. I think Arizona police should investigate that idea also. In those pictures last taken of Gabriel he looks very sleepy. Police need to send in Gabriels father to jail cell where the mother is & have father wired & see if she decides to tell him what really happened to Gabriel & if she says she killed him then the police have the right to charge her with murder & if she is facing death penalty I bet she speaks. I am praying for Gabriel, he's a doll & no child should ever go thru this,tears my heart out.

    JANUARY 20TH, 2010 What I don't understand is if she was planning to kill her beautiful baby, why did she bother hiring a babysitter to watch him while she went out? Also why did she have an almost new can of baby formula. Why not just skip the formula and drug the child until he died, which seems to be her intention? Don't get me wrong, I think this woman is a monster and if she did kill this poor child she should get the death penalty, but my point is maybe there is hope that she did give the child to someone! I pray this is the scenario.

    I just CANNOT fathom how ANYONE – Mom or Dad can harm, abuse, neglect, molest and/or murder their own child. I see it so often on this news source or another and it makes me so sick. I look at my 5 yr old son and could NEVER even think of intentionally harming him in any way. What is wrong with these people!?!?!?! Don't people realize that ... See Morethere are ways to "get rid" of your child without causing them physical/mental harm or death? I mean, terminate the pregnancy, give the child up for adoption, take the child to a hospital, police station, fire station, school, ect. You could even leave them in the local Wal-Mart or grocery store if you are that desperate for God's sake!!! Someone would eventually come across the child and get him/her taken care of. I still don't understand how in this country you need a license to drive, fish, hunt, carry a gun, and so on... BUT any "waste of skin" can have a baby only to put that child through hell and eventually death. Just once I'd like an hour with one of these women alone in a room. JUST ONCE!!! I can tell you that once that hour would be over, there would most likely be no need for a trial.

    This "mom" has some serious issues. Is it just me or has there been a rash of these missing tots and missing wives lately. It's almost as if these people are sitting there with the idea that they've learned from others mistakes ( Scott Peterson / Casey Anthony ) and think they're going to get away with it. I have one thing to say to them "The truth will set you free" Elizabeth, Casey, Drew all the others it's time to come clean
    and let these families have closure.

    I hope & pray that this baby is still alive. He is beautiful! This story is heart breaking. My prayers are with the Dad & baby Gabriel. I have a 2 year old son whom I love very much. My son is a gift from God. I don't understand how someone could hurt their child or give their baby away just to get back at the Father. What kind of Mother gives her baby Tylenol to shut him up that is horrible.

    I'm wondering about the potential adoptive parents who met this mother and baby all those months ago– have they ever undergone an adoption home assessment? Have they had children of their own or attemtpedto foster/adopt? What are their criminal backgrounds?

    Something just does not sit well with me about how they came to meet this mother and it all seems as though they were going 'under the table' to adopt this infant... no lawyer to screen the mother's situation/look for the bio-father, etc? They just up and decide to adopt some stray's child? After an airport meeting? The have concerns about her... and yet.. did they tell anyone that there were concerns with a young mother of a baby who seemed to be struggling to survive...?

    It just doesn't add up.

    This breaks my heart. Why not give baby Gabriel to his father? So sad, what a beautiful sweet innocent little baby, I would have loved this little's ashamded his mother didn't love him....I just can't imagine doing that to my sweet angel.

    This just makes me so sad. My heart breaks every time I hear anything other than that they found this poor baby...yet, I'm unable to turn my back and try to 'forget'. I have a 19 month old and can't imagine what the baby or the father is going through right now. I just pray this baby is alive.

    OMG, I want to vomit after seeing these photo's. Gabriel clearly appears to be drugged. Can This lame excuse as a mother be prosecuted under Texas law since this was the last known sighting of this beauful child. Can she get Death penalty without a body? These photos clearly show malice and intent. I'm almost out of hope that he is safe after seeing these photos. Its like she was keeping a souviner for herself? This is the Casey Anthony Case all over again. I still pray that Gabriel is alive! Makes me sick..

    I am in AZ, and this woman's limited family and people that know her attest to the fact she is a liar, and a sociopath. Both her and Gabriel's father have criminal records and neither had any business procreating. Gabriel should have been given up for adoption at birth instead of an unstable, bitter, cold Elizabeth testing the waters on parenting and hoping that she could actualy love this little baby, It obviously didn't work.

    Elizabeth is from a broken family, and had very little love growing up. She does not, and will not, care about any human. She has nothing to lose by not talking to authorities and 20 years in prison would atleast be a stable home and food at the tax payer's expense. so she is not afraid of being locked up. Sad but true. I hope little Gabriel is ok but I would not put it past this whack job to harm this baby and I hope she gets what's coming to her when she goes to prison.

    I wish the babysitter at the motel had followed her instincts and called child protective services. It was obvious to her that little Gabriel was unloved and neglected by his selfish mother. I feel heartsick about this sweet, innocent angel!
    Not even the Anthony case touched me as much as this one. Maybe because he reminds me of a toddler we love in our family?

    I have been wondering, if the mother had got the babysitter from Craiglist, could she have also gotten possible adoptive parents. Craiglist is used for all kinds of things. Why not parents looking for private adoptions? She could have answered an ad. There are couples who are desperate to adopt and will go to any lengths. Maybe police should look at ads in Craiglist if any couples who have advertised for adoption.

    Nancy Grace,

    Please look into this tip, it might lead to finding this baby boy-Gabriel? This was posted on a website called project life, I just find it very interesting and am puzzled by the information that this women Beth is sharing, and how much it relates to the case of the missing baby boy-GABRIEL in Tempe, AZ. Not to mention the timeline that has been given fits on what we already know about the case thru the local news and also Nancy Grace.

    I live in WI, but am currently in San Antonio, TX. My husband and I are adopting a handsome baby boy that was placed into our care on January 1. I've decided to make my project life about Baby Gabriel. Even though I won't be home when my project arrives I am clicking away taking his photo here in San Antonio.

    Lynn, I agree with you totally. I believe she found new "adoptive parents" after her boyfriend wouldn't sign for the first couple to adopt. I think she was sending pictures to them when she left Gabriel with sitter. Anyone think the sitters story changes. She told Nancy the baby was "thin looking" dirty, scared, with dried boogies, then last night she said he was filthy in the pictures, worse than when she say him. I think she has been getting flack for not calling someone and is now saying he didn't look too bad. Check this out: maybe he had a cold=boogers.. mother gave him Tylenol for his symptoms= "I already drugged him up....sitters words... you can give him more if he needs. The knife could be for her protection in the motel room. I think the sitter has had her fifteen minutes of fame. I am an avid Nancy watcher for years, not easily fooled; but why did the mother bother to care for, get medication for, a baby she was going to kill. I agree she may not be exactly a woman ready to be a mother, and she needs some psychological help, but I'm not so sure she killed her son...I don't think the people who have him will come foreward fo fear of looseing him.

    Just like Shaniya, this is just another case that breaks my heart. I have a 9-month old daughter and I could not imagine just "giving her away." On the contrary, I would die for her. If these women don't want their children, why can't they put them up for adoption or just leave them at a hospital or fire station? There are lots of childless couples that would be more than happy to take these children "off their hands." These poor innocent babies. Baby Gabriel looks just like my little makes me so sick to my stomach to think about where he is right now

    This girl is obviously mentally unstable....which leads me to wonder why no one noticed anything strange or different about her behavior at all before any of this occured? Friends, family members, neighbors...whomever....MUST have thought at some point that this young mother was not caring for that little boy as a normal loving mother would. It is so sad that a defenseless baby has been treated so badly by the very person who gave him life in the first place. She deserves no second chance or special treatment in jail either. I am sure she will end up with some fast talking lawyer who wants to make a big name for himself in the media...and the case will drag on and on before any justice is served as it should be.

    How a mother could do such a thing is beyond me. I have this feeling that if she gave the baby away that someone would have come forward by now knowing the situation. I believe that little Gabrieal is no longer with us. God bless his precious lttle soul. I hope the police can find out just what happened to him. Jail is too good for her.

    I think it's weird that the mom took any pictures of her kid at the hotel. Could it be that she wanted to set-up the pictures as putting the baby in danger to detour cops from thinking the baby was given away?

    January 20, 2010 at 3:17 pm
  189. Katie C

    Both Florida and Texas have the death penalty. We know the baby was alive in Texas, but the mother did not get on the bus with him. Therefore, logic dictates that the baby remained in Texas.

    Since no other 'adoptive parents' have come forward, it is looking more and more likely that she killed the child, possibly with the butcher knife she had in the hotel room, or by smothering.

    I would think that the hotel would have VIDEO of her leaving with Gabriel... and then not returning with him. Why hasn't that been approached and discussed? Do we or don't we have video?

    If they have her leaving with Gabriel, then they can trace the laptop usage she had at the hotel to trace who she talked to. Bam... culprits found.

    If no video exists of her leaving with the baby... the poor angel is in a better place. And mommy should fry.

    What drives me crazy is the clueless "babysitter" could have saved this baby. I don't know how she has the nerve to show herself on TV. She has a laundry list of things she saw wrong, yet she didn't bother to call 911. I had to change the station every time she was interviewed.
    What is up with these young women? They have no souls, and use their precious children as pawns. Elizabeth Johnson is so selfish and evil that she would rather see her child dead than with his father. I hope and pray little Gabriel is still alive. If not, then this is beyond tragic.

    The pictures just released looked to me as if the baby was in clean clothes. She even put a hat on his head. All pictures of the baby showed he was content with a pacifier in his mouth even though he had droopy eyes. The bed wasn't messed up either. I would think the baby was still alive. If she didn't care at all, the baby would have looked worse. I think this girl is psycho, put the pill bottle in her son's hands, took pictures, all to torment her ex. It looked like she took those pictures for a purpose.
    As far as anyone that might have baby Gabriel i would stress that if that baby isn't returned or police notified of the whereabouts that those people are facing serious jail time for conspiring with this psychotic mother.

    I have several questions..The so called lawyer who is telling this heartless girl to keep her mouth shut; what ever happen to lawyers abiding by the law..I understand that she deserves being represented, but what about the defendless child, is her attorney so cold so law driven that he longer has a heart to coax his client in telling the truth.. Does he know the truth? What is this no body no time? If he could get the truth from her, I know that there is some way that within legal rights he could go about leading the authorities in the right direction, if it's only on a postal letter marked known but work with me, UNKNOWN. Anthing would be better than nothing..Give the girl a good dose of Tru syrum. Put me in there, I bet I can win her trust with the authorities help. Why did'nt they take her serious and check the dumpsters when they first learned of her texting she killed the baby? If I was the childs father I would be pressing charges myself in the negligence of the Police Dept. I personally feel that if the child is dead, then the police will have little clues to follow now that it has taken this long for them to even think HOMICIDE.

    Parents Killing their own BABIES is NOT a FIX to a "so-called" problem! If people don't want their babies, give them up to people that WILL LOVE AND CARE FOR THEM, DON'T JUST DISGARD THEM LIKE YOU WOULD A PIECE OF TRASH!!!!!

    This sad story sounds like the Casey/Caylee Anthony case all over again. Elizabeth changes her stories and lies just like Casey Anthony. In my heart, I want to believe that this beautiful baby boy is alive, but my gut tells me differently. Why have children become disposeable? If her attorney had any compassion for Gabriel, he would advise Elizabeth to at least tell the truth where Gabriel is, whether alive or dead. Yes, her prison term might be the same, but the whereabouts of Gabriel would be known to Logan and the rest of the family.

    MomofMany you said something I could not agree with more......have they looked into why this crazy woman was so anti-Logan or the father whatever his name is? I have to tell you that the ONLY glimmer of hope I have is that maybe – PLEASE GOD- there is a back story and a real reason that this woman is acting the way she is. However, MomofMany you mentioned your own personal battles having to basically hide your kids for safety reasons- well i have had to do the same thing in the past like many women...but I hid with them! I would NEVER leave my 8 month old child – or any of my children,,,ever! I can not take much more of these horrific parents – or monsters....sweet Shaniya beautiful angel gone, Caylee precious child, I just want to hold on to the hope that this sweet little boy is safe and happy somewhere.
    I think that all of these sick monsters need to be thrown into GP or better yet let the real mothers – the real parents go at them....anyone that harms a child in any way deserves nothing but eternal torture!

    This is such a disturbing storey,,,,children are a gift and they are always to come before our own selfish needs. I want to know if they have called in any psychics, they can be very useful. Even if the family or police don't believe in it, this little baby's life is so worth taking the time to call someone in. It couldn't hurt. I've been praying for this little baby & his daddy. I also think they need to change the laws to make cases like this "special circumstances" and give the death penalty to people like this who " cannot account for where their babies are"!

    I am also sick over what may have happened to this sweet baby, I have a grandson about the same age.
    I rest in the fact in knowing that if he was killed, Jesus took him home to be with him and he felt no pain.
    I also know that justice will be served to whoever harmed him in any way. God is a righteous judge and if justice is not served in this world, it certainly will be served in eternity.
    Still my heart breaks for this little boy.

    It seems as this girl has Casey Anthony syndrome. So sad to even call those two women mothers. As a mother you are supposed to protect your child not put them in harms way. Obviously this girl did not want her baby and if so she should have turned him over to his father. This is an example of this woman being selfish she did not want the father to have him so she did god knows what with this poor little child. She allegedly gave her child away to a couple in San Antonio that she did not even know, she has no idea if her son is alive if that is the case. She could have handed him over to serial killers or pedafiles. What a poor excuse for a mother better yet poor excuse for a person.

    I pulled up the Tempe Arizona newspaper & GADS~~ is lots of ads for people seeking adoption or giving up a baby for adoption can call 24/7 & loads of attorneys.
    I am betting the money she left Az. on was a down payment to adopt Gabriel & that the people who have him had intentions on sending her more money after baby was settled & she wasnt going back on the adoption. There is a reason she stopped & stayed there in San Antonio & I think it was to hand over Gabriel. The people who probably have him are more than likely scare to come forward without it being a legal adoption. I feel he is alive & continue to hope & pray for him.
    Also I think the babysitter really lacks in the knowledge of child care & is now eating up the media attention.

    After everything this girl has done, I am not sure we should buy into these photos assuming the worst. She has proven to be calculating-staging photos is a no brainer and a very good way of creating another smoke screen in finding Gabriel, which is obviously her intent. What I don't understand is why she is so against the father raising this little boy?! Why not hand the baby to him and walk away, the games she is playing is either for revenge based and/or for attention (afterall she has the whole nation paying attention to her now). Really sad, however, that she is using an infant child in the process. Doesn't she recognize that she is re-creating a troubled childhood for her son that she herself experienced?!

    I feel the baby is alive. that whoever has him is trying to hide him from everyone. when Elizabeth left that day & got a babysitter maybe she went to the adoption center there. & used the other mans name to get the baby legally adopted.. something to think about. but surely the adoption center would recognize Elizabeth being all over TV & Internet.. she might have changed her name ,baby's anme & fathers name on the adoption papers? I pray they find the baby soon. don't understand some of these kind of mothers. they also need to find a way to MAKE her talk at the jail.

    These latest pics do not seem to show baby Gabriel thin, sick or unhappy. He may have been. But as a grandmother of 9 and mother of 4 beautiful, middle class kids, I have many photos of my babies with their eyes half open (when they're tired) and even some in clothes with drool or a little food on them. His clothes fit, they looked like fairly new clothes, and I also noticed a few toys, but the babysitter said there were none.
    CNN is doing a great job, but why only them?
    A new person or couple to a neighborhood (outside of Texas) would never raise questions if no one else saw the pictures or story.
    Please get more word out. I believe he's alive and with someone who really wanted a child and may be too dumb to know how VERY much trouble they're in. Maybe they would turn him in somewhere if they were up on the news.

    I agree with Gary. The system is so messed up! This mother like all the other sickos out there that abuse and murder children should be shown no mercy. What a world we live in...

    Does the US govt have any spy satellites that could review any images of the mother, like play back any located images that could see view mother giving baby Gabriel to another couple?
    In the age of post Cold War, you could probally even ask the Russians and they may even one of those satellites in orbit to help.

    was baby Gabriel in the duffel bag?
    Did she pawn off the baby to anyone on the bus even if the baby was in the duffel bag?
    No cameras within miles of that hotel that could pick up her travels.
    You know, camera one at one location could view her and car and another one a few miles away from last camera could have seen that same woman and car?

This little boy reminds me of my son when he was 8 mths old. They look alike, and its make me so mad the this woman would give this child away, or even kill him... he's such a handsome lil man..... Please find him for gods sake......xoxoxoxo... I bet he's so scared if he's alive.....

    I am not so sure the "Adoptive parents to be" are telling everything they know. For some reason, some of the things they have said, concern me.
    Tammy Smith aid something that raised a red flag. When speaking about the mom, she mentioned how smart Gabriel's mother is, how she "knows what she is doing". What does that mean exactly. Does Tammy Smith and Gabriel's mother have a plan, that even Mr. Smith doesn't know about? I think the Smith's are concealing something. They seem too cool, and collected to be emotionally attached to this baby. I believe they know where he is, who is is with.

    It disgusts me that women can have children and discard them like garbage. How could anyne do this to their own child? I just don't get it, why not give him to the father or those who cannot or DO NOT want to take care of their children, can give them up for adoption to a loving family wanting children to love. These people need to go to gail fo life, no parole ever! They made their chose and have to live with the consequences. I also wish we could take whatever means necessary to make her tell what she actually did to this child. I am so tired of our society wanting to lookout for others rights, what rights, she has given up all rights onece she did something like this!

Then, have real women confront her; if she doesn't answer their questions...turn your backs & let them beat it out of her. That should give her the "attention" she craves. I know violence is wrong but what she's done is unhuman!!! I pray baby Gabriel is alive be it as a boy/girl; just let someone know his whereabouts. She needs to starve (attention & food wise) be an adult not a brat!

    here's my thing. did anyone besides me notice the size of that medicine bottle and the fact that it is full. A baby of 8 months should only get .4 on the medicine dropper of tylnol even of this weight. or did anyone ask the baby sitter how much she was instructed to give and how often. (every 4 to 6 hours) and i read that dad is torn on going to see her and ask her because he don't want to make her mad but really can someone tell him that the madder she gets the more likely she is to trip up her story or stories if anyone has the power tomake her to that its him. if she flies into a blind rage so what maybe something good will come of it.

    I weep for this poor little boy who, I'm afraid, didn't have a very good life – just a short one. My heart is soooooo broken over this one and the multitude of others that have been followed on this show.
    I have two grandkids that I need to "hug" over the phone every time I see one of these sad cases of kids in the way, or victimized in any way because of somebody's evilness. I"m ready for birth control in our water because too many people who don't want them end up with kids that are cute and cuddly and then one day a nuisance and pain in the ass. Then the people who hurt them are coddled and protected(!!!) because they have "rights". To my "sisters" with the brilliant and aptly stated methods for making this particular creep talk – AMEN! I believe you sometimes have to "talk" to people in the only language they'll understand. Those of us that are sick of what's happening in our society need to get those lazy assed, complacent, go with the flow lawmakers of ours to wake up and do something besides photo shoots and sound bites. People that harm kids should have special laws made just for them that allow whatever it takes to get the full measure of justice for what they've done.
    As for the babysitter, my thoughts too at first were why didn't she call somebody. And if she had, I hope whoever showed up would truly have done something to help this precious little boy. Unfortunately, there is story after story about the authorities not being any help and a child ending up a victim anyway. Not knowing what else to do, I'm praying for this baby and all the others, that God is holding them close, that the perpetrators go to hell, and that the hearts and minds of those with thoughts of similar evil deeds will turn from them before they break our hearts again.

    I have a question on this story, have the police given any thought to hiring a Psychic like Sylvia Brown to come in? I think at this point it could only do good for finding the baby. my heart goes out to his father and family.

    I think they need to concentrate on finding not only the diaper bag, but also her tote bag. Im willing to bet one or both have all the evidence/body they need to convict her. I believe Elizabeth turned a trick the day she got the babysitter, (2 hrs.gone, dressed for clubbing and $$$ the police cant figure where she got it) Seems to me, shes not talking because if she tells them he,s dead, she,ll never wlk free. I pray I,m wrong, but its not looking good at all. Sadd this happens all TOO Often!!!

    She said she killed him. She said she is already in jail for kidnapping so she doesn't know why she'd help find Gabriel.She said lawyers told her not to say anything.
    I.M.O. These are all leads to the fact that the poor child is in heaven.
    If she admits she is capable of giving her baby away to complete strangers, she's is more capable to kill her own child. I think she knew she was going to jail, tried to flee for the best of it. Left her car just for the GPS. Now trying to get less sentence.

    you are so right Shirley,we don't know what she did to her own son ...because she (EJ) can't tell the truth...she should be made to talk,and have no rights until she comes clean with the true facts...humane or not....starvation....sleep deprovation....i think whatever it humane are we if we dont't make her talk????

    This may be wishful thinking...but I agree that those photos are staged and the ones with his eyes droopy, I feel, are just bad shots because not all of the pictures show him with droopy eyes. Does he look thinner and dirtier? Yes...but he hasn't been home and babies don't eat/sleep the way they do at home and she obviously is too busy caught up in herself to hand wash his clothes. I feel like that her taking pictures was a good sign. Unless she is completely demented, who would take a picture of their soon to be victim son before killing him? I feel like she took the pictures to torment Gabriel's father, texted him that she killed him and that way, it would throw the scent off of the people she gave the baby to. At this point, I just pray this baby is and being loved...even if he is with people who are breaking the law by not giving him back to his father. That, to me, is a better alternative than this poor defenseless baby who didn't ask to be born to be dead somewhere. My heart is heavy everyday and I watch Nancy Grace hoping that there is something positive breaking in this case. I will continue to watch and continue to pray for Gabriel's safe return.

    If indeed she is bi-polar with no med's she will be up then down. Her bottom should be coming fast. I pray they find that beautiful baby and then put her away. Why can't family get the information from her even if they have to beat the crap out of her?

    this story makes me sick and sad and angry. baby gabriel does not deserve any of this, he's innocent and a sweet angel. how could elizabeth johnson, his own mother, do this to him? she is either a pschopath or a heartless monster. i hope baby gabriel can be found safe, but my gut tells me this is another casey anthony case. or she may have sold baby gabriel, but that's not much better is it?? i am praying for his safety and justice.

    January 21, 2010 at 11:20 am

    my guess of why elizabeth johnson took those last pics of baby gabriel was to really show the dad how she did it to hurt him. i'm just so sick right now, thinking what the innocent baby must have gone through.

    This girl just needs to tell police where her baby is. The title mother needs to be taking from her. She is no mother,she is just a women who gave birth to a child, she is a lier who gave this mans baby to someone she knows. I do believe the police will find this child and give him back to his father and the rest of his family. When he is found, i hope this father never and i mean never let this girl see him again. She dont deserve to see Gabriel grow up and become somebody. She needs to spend her life in jail. She makes me sick. Why are so many people hurting there children. if you dont want the child, take the child to the police or fire department, you dont even need to give your name. there are thousand of ppl out there who take a child in and give them a great life.

    Sure Disturbed, becasue she is such a "model parent." I am sure she ran out to get her baby teething medicine. I can understand trying to give her the benefit of the doubt here but give me a break. This girl needs a serious butt whooping. I can't stand looking at her little sickening smirk on TV. I can't even look at her. She disgusts me. She is a selfish, no good, rotten, poor excuse for a mother. They should send her to death row along with Casey Anthony.

    Nancy have they investigated weather the adoptive to be parents have relatives in Texas who they called and sent the mom there to give them baby Gabriel. There is something about them I just don't trust especially tami. I feel she still knows more than she admits they appear very suspicious to me and not truthful. Love the show glad we have an update on Haielah I was wondering what was happening to that investigation. thank you Nancy for you

    Why didn't the babysitter call the police especially since she seemed to know something was not right, the baby was druged the mother did not care who she was, she could have taken the baby maybe she wanted someone too that is why she called any one out of craigs list. I feel when the babysitter left she should have called the police even if anoynomou.

    January 21, 2010 at 3:01 pm
  255. Vicky Davis

    I really feel like slapping the truth out of her. I think she is scared because maybe she did accidentally kill the baby after stating she did but perhaps she was lying then but after that she did accidentally kill him and knows if she speaks they will never believe it was an accident just because of what she had previously said to the father that she killed the baby. It is sad she is so pretty and could have had a great life foster care or not but she has ruin three lives, hers, the father and baby Gabriel, I am still thinking that tammy knows something she is too calm does not appear upset and now maybe the mom is not even telling her where the baby is and she is mad also and that is why she is saying things about the mom. also did they ever go through the hotel garbage, laundry shut if they have one, garbage dumps, yards in or around the hotel, the grave yard, the park are they doing anything get the dogs what are they doing to find him instead of saying yeah he could be dead then look for him.

    i think baby gabriel is in mexico ,i think the woman in the second hotel with the texas id is the woman who has him elizabeth said they resembled each other . i think they met in the park and made plans from there the woman went out and bought a car seat and checked into hotel until it was time to pick up the baby . the clerck could have been mistaken and thought it was elizabeth cause why did she use her right name at the other hotel .and i heard her say she was in only one hotel. as far as mexico goes tammy smith made it very clear that elizabeth said the man was big not fat but big with dark VERY dark hair was that a hint mexican men have dark very dark hair . He could have family in mexico . that second hotel has to be looked at and not just taking this clerks word for it

    Sorry if this is a repeat, but I just tried to post this latest thought I had and it said there was an error with e-mail address.

    I was thinking, since Tammi Smith is saying she is out there in the open and wants to help bring this baby home, she can go a step further. Nancy said the other night on the show, it is legal to trick a confession. I think Tammi should be walked passed Elizabeth in jail, in same clothing Elizabeth is now wearing, into another cell (or appear to be in a cell) but far enough away that communication between the two can't be had. And then requestion Elizabeth again, having her believe, Tammi is getting charged with assisting in the abduction and anything else. I know Elizabeth doesn't seem to care or love her own beautiful baby, or the father/boyfriend whom she's known since middle school (I believe), but she seems to have at least pretended to be sorry to the Smiths. If she thinks someone else will go down with her, maybe, just a small chance, she'll fess it???

    she will not be having any fun in jail because it has been on lockdown. Also her grandfather and twin brother got turned away from a visit. Before the lockdown. Now that it is on lockdown, It could last for a couple of days it has to do with out sheriff. By the way from what I hear it is a rough place. Phoenix is a large city part of our jail is in tents its called "tent city".not a place I would want to be.

    Did any one question Elizabeth Johnsons friends the ones that she had the friends hide baby Gabriel From what i understood they hide the baby for three weeks and that Elizabeth called the cops and said the father Logan kidnaped Gabriel? I'm so sick over what has taken place from Elizabeth giving the baby to Jack and Tammy Smith and then the babysitter talking about how baby Gabiel looks like both physical and motionally . Ihope that Elizabeth gets the death penalty if she has killed that baby. Also i would like to know why baby Gabriel was not taken off the bio mom when she called the police and told them the father kidnapped Gabriel. That should of been a heads up on the mental state of Elizabeth in making choices for this baby.


    I'm a mother of two miracles Amber Elizabeth and Steven Samuel and my daughter i gave birth at the age of 46yrs old and my son Steven the age of 52yrs old Ipray for the baby hes alright and the father

    They seriously need a professional to make her talk. Sombody to get into her head and make her break down emotionaly so she confesses. I can tell she has some long build up issues and with her being young she reacted and made some mistakes and now knows what she did was wrong so shes protecting her butt. Sombody needs to break this little girl and make her cry and feel guilty so she might turn and do the right thing. I just hope her baby is truely in hiding and whoever is hiding him feels bad and confesses

    nancy–After watching your show I am sickend by the missing children and how the mothers of these children are the ones that killed them, druged them and sold them for sex. one night i was watching your show when my son came down stairs and wanted us to watch a bitch fight on the television show "BAD GIRLS CLUB" i was wonder if you ever watched it, if you have not i would like you to watch one episode the new show that the younger population are watching. It is violent, crud and obserd its all sexy dressed girls wearing almost nothing, breast hanging out ,while they are swearing, fighting and being obnoxious. I can not believe it is allowed to be viewed on regular cable television. whats wrong with our younger generation i feel it starts with shows in this nature. we need some one like nancy grace to argue and put a stop to these types of shows. we as parents are not perfect and we can not possibly monitor all the programs our children watch on television. One night i was watching Adventures in Babysitting good movie for jr high to view
    one problem a commercial came on and it was about two teenagers talking about a trojan condom that vibrates and an elderly women tells them they can order them on line thats were i got mine. I was shocked, angry. you think your children are safe watching a show like adventures in babysitting and they are not. think about it if i were a teenager or even younger and were with friend and that commercial came on i would log on to that site. our younger generation is being corrupted with the raw shows they view on television.

    Hopefully baby Gabriel's father will talk to the FBI and police to have people searching for the baby. I am praying as well for Gabriels safe return. I still say and ask why hasn't any Psychic been called in or offer to help in this case. Police depts have used them in the past. If they could pick up anything as to what has happened to him, or where he is at.
    I would also stake out that couple that was going to adopt him, tap their phones, etc. Something still I feel is n't on the up and up with them, meaning I don't feel they have been totally honest and still be involved with knowing where this poor little baby is. As to Gabriels father and all of his family, get on TV, scream out justice, scream out for wanting to find your baby! Do something! Be on the news, etc!
    Thank you Nancy Grace for a place we all can share and vent and perhaps through all our ramblings on here some good may come of it all.

    Let her know what it's like to have to look around every corner and lurkiing in the shadows suffering in silence.
    It seems like these young women, Misty Cummings, Casey Anthony and Elizabeth Johnson all want to be in the limelight and they've sacrificed their own babies to get there. Sick Sick Sick!

    Nancy, please I beg you to stay with this story. It is drving me absolutely insane. I was on my way home from the grocery store just a little while ago and caught a glimpse of my own 10-month-old son sleeping in his car seat and completely broke down. I have no idea why this story is having such an impact on me, I see baby Gabriels precious little face every time a look at my son. Thoughts of what he has possibly been through just absolutely break my heart! It's time to rock the San Antonio authorites!!! Time is wasting, these landfills need to be searched this little boy is NOT a piece of trash and he should not be laying in a landfill like one!!!! The people of San Antonio need to observe,,,someone you know suddenly buying diapers and formula?? Turn them in!!! This child needs to be the dealing of his mothers fate can begin!!!

    I can not imagine giving my kids( when I do have some) away to strangers. I don't know but , I think that if she had given the baby to someone in the states, they would have returned the baby by now. Something to think about. I hope he is okay.

    Christine, regarding the post referenced in a website called project life, about a woman getting a boy in her custody Jan 1., did you report this information to the tipline, or even to the authorities? It seems like a lead that at least needs further investigating.

    The most disturbing thing about the recent pix is that the medicene bottle pictured is for either tylenol, or motrin, that is extremely concentrated. As I recall, I think that the dosage is like .04, or half of the eyedropper full for a dose, given every 4-6 hours. It disturbs me that the same color of medicene is in that medicene pacifier, and it looks full, which really scares me that she was just letting him slowly die right in front of her.

    And, why do we take pix of our kids? I take pix of my kids when they are doing something funny, having fun, or when it is a special occasion. I don't take pic's when my kids are sick, tired, and are needing to be held or fed! The pictures are heartbreaking because the baby seems to be begging to be picked up with his eyes, begging to be proplerly fed, loved and cared for.

    yes, in the pic, he does have on a hat, different sleeper, and looks better than the other pic, did the sitter change his clothes, put on the hat, and clean his face? I am sure that she feels guilty enough for leaving this baby, and does not need people placing the blame on her. Plus she is 18, and just probably was not confident enough to place the call to 9-1-1., plus, who knows if the cops would have done anything anyway at the time, not knowing that the custody interference was going on in a different state. I feel like Elizabeth was hoping to come back to a dead baby, and blame the sitter, this should serve as a warning to anyone offering anonymous services through craigslist.

    Also, the few times that I have traveled with my twins I had to endure repeated noise complaints from hotel guests, despite the fact that I asked for ground level rooms with one side to the outside, as I know how difficult it is to keep babies quiet, so did anyone complain about the crying baby, or were his cries too weak?

    I wish that the POlice would give some better information, people are willing and able to help search, but I think that they need some communication from Law Enforcement. Sadly, it seems that the Police are burned out from these monster moms. I wonder if they have always existed, and it is jut now thanks to modern technology that they are identified, and in the past may have just had babies that went missing or died mysteriously.

    Please nancy, keep the focus on this baby, and forget the Tiger Woods story, he doesn't need our attention, these missing babies do.

    Something has been bothering me about a comment (just a quick little comment) that Mr. Smith made a while back. When they were talking to Nancy, he said, "we have our sources, too.........isn't that cool?" Very odd, don't you think? "Isn't that cool?" is a very strange thing to say during this sort of interview. Also, the fact that their polygraphs were inconclusive.

    Hi Nancy, I just dont see how any mother could let her child play with medicine bottles. As a mother I hate to even give my son medicine and I only do it when I abolutely have to. She is facing alot of charges and I hope she gets the up most punishment they can give her. I have not been able to keep my cool since this story was released. How come they dont have her on any medication? This woman is obviously CRAZY and I dont say that lightly. Say hello to the twins for me...

    For the most part, I believe Baby Gabriel is alive. I believe Elizabeth found an ad in the paper or on the internet (craigslist) around the time she began selling her belongings and already had in her mind what she was going to do when she left Arizona. As soon as she left the "adoptive parents" knew she was on her way to Texas. They may have even allowed her to use the adoptive mother's id to check in. An unobservant clerk may not have noticed it was not her ID. Real Texas ID's are not usually handed out on the day you apply for them, they are mailed to you and can take 3-4 weeks to get in the mail. The adoptive parents may not be from San Antonio at all, they might be from some other area. After all the airport is close to the hotel where she was staying. (Easy get-away) And Elizabeth may not even know they are not from that area if they aren't. She didn't seem to show a lot of concern in placing her baby anywhere with anyone just to keep it from the father. And, why was she so desperate to keep him from the father?

    If this was some desperate couple to have a baby as some have suggested, then he is probably being well taken care of. People who are trying to adopt usually want children badly and can't have any. Hopefully, little Gabriel is in the hands of people who are feeding, bathing, and caring for him properly and not leaving him with strange babysitters in a hotel. It is unlikely that these people have not seen the media coverage about baby gabriel or viewed it on the internet since the mother claims they knew some of the circumstances. Hiding the child at this point knowingly is a crime and they are probably afraid to come forward. I think they should announce immunity for the people if they return the baby. By now they probably love this little guy (who wouldn't -he's a doll baby)

    The media needs to stay on this story. Great job by Nancy and all on the story. I say Nancy should visit her and have a little talk with her. :) This girl is obviously dumb enough to trust the first couple in adopting her baby, though she did nothing to check them out or take a lot of time to know them. My guess is she really does know nothing much about the new "adoptive parents."

    I just honestly think if she had killed the baby, she would not have sent it in a text message to the boyfriend. How dumb could she be? Why was she so convinced the FBI already has pictures of the "adoptive parents" with the baby? Unless they were in the same location as her and on some of the same surveillance tapes as her. Or unless they went to the airport?????? Don't airplanes require car seats too? Wouldn't someone notice if someone else popped up with a new baby, especially one that is 8 months old instead of newborn? I think the baby and adoptive parents are no longer in Texas or have moved to someplace new where people would not know they didn't always have this baby.

    Has anyone ever considered that Elisabeth could have left Gabriel with a baby sitter so she could get all provocatively dressed and hit the clubs to make a little money for her shopping sprees and her next road trip after she got rid of the Gabriel. Anyone capable of doing what she has done to Gabriel would not be above prostituting herself to get more money. And this is something I would certainly entertain as to how she came about being able to have her nails done, stay in these hotels/motels, and do all that shopping.
    I, too, believe this poor little angel is no longer among us or if she really did give him to strangers, if they were any kind of decent people, they would have contacted the police immediately. God bless and Keep you, Gabriel, where ever you are. You did not deserve the lot you got in this life.

    I tried my hardest not to cry at those photos I pray everyday that they find him alive for some reason I feel like if something happened to him it would take a piece of me with him its awful I have two boys of my own and I can't ever see how someone can do that too their own kid....

    I just hope that they find baby Gabriel safe! My son is around the same age, and I can't imagine why Elizabeth is being so vindictive. To tell the bio dad the baby is dead, that is horrible. I almost believe she did kill him, even though I hope to god it's not true. I don't see how someone can be so callous. I could never give my son away to a stranger let alone harm him in any way.

    to Nancy,thanks for beig the voice for those who dont have one
    did she give that medicine to the baby to send to his daddy,
    it seems to me that if you notice,the baby looked somewhat normal
    on the first photo,then she gave him the medicine,after that the bottle looked empty,the baby looked like he was about to fall asleep ,his eyes closing,as if the medicine was taking over,i think she did it,and wanted to send the father the pictures,just to say i told you so,it makes me sick,also did she mix the medicine with something ? because as we all know ,you give next to nothing to a baby,
    thanks Nancy,

    God bless Baby Gabriel that he's still alive and in a safe home, though that's all relative because we know nothing about the allegedly 'adoptive couple'. How can any mom/woman do such a thing to her own baby, I don't understand. Such an irresponsible person to do such an act. This baby did not ask to be in this world, but when we as mothers give birth to a baby, it's our innate instinct and ultimate responsibility to care and love this baby. It is unfortunate that this baby is caught up in custody battle and is used as a tool between the two parents. How immature and irresponsible. Baby Gabriel, I wish and hope you're safe and sound. Love.

    In looking at the pictures..I would say she had dressed Gabriel in the outfit with cap to meet new adopted parents. In one photo looks like he had drooled on himself, then looks like a fresh change to cap outfit.
    The talk of the mysterious duffle bag is probably in a locker at Miami bus station as Elizabeth probably didnt know where she was going & needed to leave some where.
    No matter how mental this girl is....I believe she would of offered him back to father for cash before she would kill him. She had already claimed the father had ruined her life so why would she kill instead of giving up to father? Gabriel was a pawn pure & simple, elizabeth wanted the party life but needed cash....she sold him!
    When standing in front of judge saying this was all wrong...why wasnt she offered a lie detectors test then?

    If the lawyers are telling her to keep her mouth shut about where the baby is... well, then, I think the lawyers should go to jail with her and serve a nice long sentence for obstruction of justice and endangering the welfare of a child, among others... and not be allowed to practice law. I think the safety and well-being of a child should hold weight here. If her lawyers don't, well, then I hope the heartless bastards don't have children.

    i dont know how any lawyer could live with the things they hear from clients. if they know where that child is it should be required by law to report where they are. dead or alive, even if it were anonymous.... the family of this innocent baby deserves to know. what kind of mother could do anything shes told the police?

    Nancy little Gaberials eyes are so red as if he had been crying for hours. Or he is sick. Or both. This women is so sick, i still believe whoever she gave this child too is aware and is hiding him to keep him because they are desperate to have a child. I believe he is alive. I only pray they wanted a child so badly they are giving him alot of love and somehow are decent parents although i do not know how they can be they are committing a huge crime. Plus with all this news they are on the run..

    I cannot believe that she has not told police where little Gabriel is. She is a very disturbed individual who deserves nothing. I think that they are being to easy on her and for her attorneys to advise her to keep her mouth shut is just absurd. How do they sleep at night knowing that they could help get the child back but instead keep their silence. What is wrong with picture?
    My prayers go out to the father and his family along with the mothers family as well. I could not imagine what I would do if anyone tried to harm one of my kids. I just hope someone can talk some since into this crazy person. She is facing time in prison, hopefully life, so just come clean already!!!

    There is a new type of generation out there of young people (ages 0-30) WHO I BELIEVE ARE SOCIOPATH'S. I am a parent of 3 sons ages from 19-24 and it seems so many parent's were too busy workin to pay attention to their kids while growin up and let video games and the computer be the babysitter. They are egotistical and have no real grasp on reality and when bad things happen they say,"Gee, I had no idea...I didn't see any signs". Bullshit!!!! Now the people who DO live in the real world will be victims of these predator's in the near future.

    To many young woman are playing the same game after the popularity of the Anthony case. These young girls get attorneys who live off the media attention and cash from sick moms who need to be put into jail and then get NO media attention. The Anthony case is a perfect example making a woman who killed her own child a hero instead of a common criminal. It is so sad in a civilized country that this is allowed to happen

    As a Mommy that has had to suffer the loss of a child this girl really makes me sick. My thoughts are she is crazy ... what Mommy in her right mind could hurt this beautiful little boy!

    I can't understand who would do this to their baby. She is sick young girl, if she thought that the only way to hold on to her man, by having a child that she is unworthy of to get him back. She might have done anything to her baby. There is no doubt in my mind that she gave Gabriel away or druged him to get back with the baby dad.

    I'm really confused. I was watching about Baby Gabriel missing and I thought the same girl was involved in that that is now involved with a baby Haleigh. Am I wrong? I remember them showing her picture and saying she wasn't going to help the police if she didn't get something out of it and now they have her picture up about a missing Baby Haleigh. Are these two different cases?

    im a youngmother and its hard but i deal with it, i made wrong choices, there should be some classes for young mothers even young parents about children, or family should be more involved to stop these kind of incidents, i see people around me always out drinkin leavin there kids with whoever and saying there a good mom, there not dealing with there kids, someone else is so when the time comes its very overwhelming and things like this happens.... its horrible to even think someone could harm there babies or children to make other peoples lives miserble. Some people shouldnt have kids or should give them to someone who cant have kids the right way.

    I desperately hope this beautiful baby will be found alive and well! The woman doesn't sound stable based on her stories. Suggesting the FBI has footage of the so-called adoption, or the couple who now have the child, honestly sounds, to me, like she's delusional. Why would you tell the police that the FBI, an agency they have contact with, has some evidence of your innocence if there isn't? They can check on that sort of thing...

    I tell you what I am almost 24 and I have a 6 month old and this story just makes me so angry!! They need to hook the mom up to a shock machine until she cracks like the good ol days!! I am oddly old fashioned and the problem with people (ANY age) these days is that they are not scared anymore of getting into trouble!
