The women who accused former Republican Senate candidate Roy Moore of inappropriate behavior and sexual abuse faced serious backlash for their decisions to come forward, with their private lives aired out in public and threats of varying degrees leveled against them.

Johnson's home caught fire Wednesday morning. Firefighters rushed to the rural one-level house after a utility worker called 911 shortly after 8 a.m., but by the time they were able to quench the flames, Johnson's family home was all but collapsed.

However, the Etowah County Sheriff's Office said in a statement that it did not believe the blaze at the home of Tina Johnson "is in any way related to Roy Moore or allegations made against him". "Warrants have not been obtained in this case". A suspect of interest is being spoken to.

On Friday, she told AL.com how she had lost everything in the fire. "I want people to know that it's OK to finally say something", she told AL.com of her reasoning for going public with her story. "But there have been no charges, to my knowledge, related to the fire at this time".

The odor led to a search that found 60 pounds of marijuana, worth about $336,000, inside boxes, the newspaper reported. During the traffic stop, deputies noticed a strong scent of the sticky-icky emanating from the Toyota Tacoma.

According to AL.com, Johnson accused Moore of groping her when she was 28. "We have just the clothes on our backs".

Johnson and her family are living in a motel while their friends and neighbors help them recover from the blaze.

Another neighbor said the man authorities are investigating "approached her as she was getting in her vehicle that morning and asked if she thought Johnson's house was going to burn".

Defeated U.S. Senate candidate Roy Moore's wife has identified the "Jewish" attorney she referred to at a campaign rally.
