I am putting the Timeline here as it is getting rather long.  Please note that in the later part of the timeline I have incorporated the arrest warrant so when it says "I" it means T.P.D.

Gabriel Johnson Timeline v7

July -  Logan alleged, she became enraged when he didn't return home from work on time and took a knife to his clothing, the couch and the baby crib. She broke dishes and took a cooking pan and smashed the TV while the baby was in the Tempe apartment.

They were forced to move into another apartment.

September - Johnson got out of control again in September when she got mad at her brother on the phone. She cut up the baby's clothes and the crib and broke every window in the apartment. Johnson spent the evening in jail and went through a diversion program on the criminal-damage charges, according to Tempe Municipal Court records.

Dec 8: Fight between EJ and Logan and EJ tells Logan to leave. He does. 
Logan -Last time I saw them was the 8th of December. She wanted me out of the house. And we talked and split up. And I gave him a kiss and put him in his bed. Last time I saw him.

Logan informed officers that a custodial hearing was scheduled for the afternoon of Monday, December 28 at Maricopa County Superior Court – Family Court.
Elizabeth failed to appear at the custodial hearing. Subsequently, Logan was issued full custody of Gabriel Johnson. Investigators had received information that Elizabeth and Gabriel were in the San Antonio Texas area. Since Elizabeth was out of the state of Arizona, and no longer had custodial rights to the child, a warrant was issued for Elizabeth Johnson for the violation of custodial interference.
Tempe investigators received information indicating that Elizabeth and Gabriel stayed at either or both the Home Gate Studio and Suites and Quality Inn Fiesta Park, both in San Antonio, on December 26. Elizabeth was scheduled to check out on December 27, however she did not go through the formal checkout process. Therefore, it is unknown if Elizabeth left San Antonio on December 26 or December 27.

Dec 27 – Tempe Police learn EJ is in the State of Texas

Dec 27 – Tempe Police made contact with Tammi Smith due to an incident which occurred on Dec 9 when Gabriel was found to be in the care of the Smith’s.  Tempe Police Patrol Officers and a Detective arrived at the Smith's residence located in Scottsdale, Arizona in order to confirm that Gabriel Johnson was not in their care. Tammi Smith was interviewed at the time. A consent to search the Smith's property was granted. It was learned that Gabriel was not on their property. It is important to note, Tammi Smith withheld information from the police concerning her full communication with Elizabeth which was via text messages and phone calls. Tammi initially did not tell the police about the following text message which she sent to Logan McQueary on

Dec 27 – T.P.D. Sergeant L. Lenzen contacted Elizabeth via telephone.  Elizabeth was instructed to make contact with Texas Law Enforcement in order to confirm that Gabriel was alive and safe.  Elizabeth refused.

Dec 27 - Tammi Smith sent the following text message to Logan: "Can we get together tomorrow morning to talk with you and your dad? I'm afraid she'll be gone forever, cause she doesn't want to go to jail for kidnapping. She doesn't trust u or ur dad. The only way she'll come back is if my attorney faxes the signed papers to her so she won't get in trouble, and Gabriel b w/us." Logan responded by typing "no" and that he wanted Gabriel returned to him. It is important to note that Tammi Smith did not disclose this information on 12/27/09 while speaking with the police.

Dec 28 Elizabeth failed to appear at a custody hearing in Maricopa County Superior Court's Family Court in Phoenix AZ on Dec 28

Dec 28 - On 12/28/09, Logan McQueary and Elizabeth Johnson had a scheduled court appearance regarding Petition to Enforce Child Custody Determination. Tammi Smith was aware of the scheduled court appearance. It was later determined that Tammi Smith provided her with telephone numbers of people who could possibly assist her with legal advise regarding Elizabeth not attending the scheduled court date.  This investigatigation discovered that the following information occurred while Elizabeth was in the State of Texas during the week of 12/21/09 to 12/27/09.

During the course of the investigation, I learned that Tammi researched and attempted to help Elizabeth change court jurisdiction regarding the custody hearing of Gabriel, although Tammi was aware of FC-2009-007470. Tammi stated she used her computer in order to find information on changing court jurisdiction. She then provided the information to Elizabeth. Tammi telephoned lawyers asking for legal advice regarding changing court jurisdiction. Tammi admitted to attempting to change court jurisdiction during a police interview. Tammi recalled making a telephone call to a relative in order to determine if housing was available for Elizabeth in the State of Tennessee (this occurred after Elizabeth fled the State of Arizona). Tammi suggested Elizabeth enter a shelter after Elizabeth fled the State of Arizona. Tammi researched the topic of adopting an adult in hopes of adopting Elizabeth and Gabriel.

Dec 29 5:51PM From Tammi to Elizabeth
I believe in my heart that you would never hurt him, but the detectives have a recording of you telling Logan that you killed him and you sounded very scared and distraught. We are also distraught! We love Gabriel and You, and you are going to get yourself in a lot trouble if you don'...t come forward very, very soon. As we told you all this time, if you do the right thing, everything will work out for the good. I really mean that! The lead Detective on this case really feels for you and he wants to help you!!! You can call Detective Aguilera at XXXXXXX..He truly wants to help you! He is also a Negotiator and he said that what Logan and his dad did to you was very wrong and uncalled for. He said so far you aren't in any trouble because you were technically never served yet. But if you don't come forward soon, you could be in some serious trouble. Just call detective Aguilera, Please...

YOU and jack are such good people.

Dec 29 – T.P.D  conducted a police interview with the Smiths. When  asked how the Smiths were going to handle the fact that Logan McQueary refused to sign over his custodial rights. Tammi Smith stated she was going to use her attorney's help to pressure Logan to pay previous child support, current child support and be responsible for visitation. Tammi stated due to the above listed pressure the hope was that Logan would release his custodial rights and the adoption could proceed. Per Logan's statements, Tammi and Jack Smith called him approximately 3 times and continued to ask him to release his custodial rights. The phone calls occurred during the month of December of 2009. Logan continued to refuse. Tammi Smith admitted to sending Logan a text regarding releasing his custodial rights. It is important to note that Logan McQueary and
Elizabeth Johnson were in the process of court proceedings regarding custody of their son and child support. Their family case was assigned to the Honorable Judge Michael McVey from the Superior Court of Maricopa County. Please refer to FC2009-

From Tammi  To Elizabeth
12/30/2009 7:49 AM To: elizabeth

Thank you so much for letting me know that your both are OK! I miss that little angel! I knew that you could never hurt him. A mother has to really love her child enough to give him up to a good family in order to give him a more meaningfully life.
Be safe,

Dec 30 - Elizabeth was arrested Dec 30 at a youth hostel in Miami Beach FL
International Fun House 230 20th street.

Dec 30 – During an interview with the F.B.I. Elizabeth stated she gave Gabriel away to an unknown couple.  During an interview with the F.B.I Elizabeth was very vague with her description of the unknown couple.  Elizabeth stated she met the coup in San Antonio, Texas at a park.
On Wednesday December 30, 2009 at approximately 10:00 PM (Eastern Time), Elizabeth Johnson was located by Police Officers with the Miami Beach, Fl Police Department. Elizabeth was placed under arrest for the outstanding custodial interference warrant. Gabriel was not with Elizabeth when she was taken into custody.
Elizabeth has exercised her right to speak with an attorney in this matter, and has not provided investigators with information about Gabriel’s condition or current location. There have been no signs of Gabriel after December 26, 2009.

Dec 31 10:09 AM From Tammi To Elizabeth
Ok, I'm gonna try to help you here and I pray that you understand and do the right thing so you and Gabriel can be free forever!

Detective Patricia Ramirez came here yesterday to do an interview with us. She is now leading the investigation. Because she deals with Homicide and Sex Crimes. She said that if you go to any police officer (wright down your name and Gabriel's name with Det. Ramirez name and phone # (XXX) XXX-XXXX on it and give to the officer) tell him to take a good look at you two and then once you leave he can call Det. Ramirez to let her know you two are both safe.

Dec 31 11:36AM Tammi postes a comment on Elizabeth’s Myspace  “Read my message titled "Gabriel" “

Jan 4 - Judge McVey telephoned the T.P.D. He provided me with a voice message which was left by Tammi Smith. I recognized her voice due to my previous interviewing. In the recording, Tammi Smith requests Judge McVey return her phone call. Tammi states that she believed that Elizabeth would return with the baby if she could know that Gabriel would be "safe." Tammi then suggests that Judge McVey grant the Smith's guardianship. The entire recording is approximately 2 minutes long. Tammi later stated a media reporter told her to call Judge McVey (this was her response to the message which she left). When I asked Tammi further specific questions about the reporter, Tammi could not recall if the reporter actually told her to call Judge McVey.

Jan 5 Police in San Antonio located her car at the Motel 6, near I-35 and Zarzamora
On January 5, 2010 at approximately 4:40 PM (Arizona Time) the white 1995 Oldsmobile being driven by Elizabeth Johnson was located in San Antonio, TX.
Gabriel was not in the vehicle and his current whereabouts are still unknown. The vehicle was located at a Motel 6 across from a Tornado Bus Station off Interstate 35 by an FBI Agent. The vehicle is currently being processed for evidence.
Elizabeth Johnson is age 23, 5’6” tall, and approximately 135 lbs., with blond hair and blue eyes. Photos of Elizabeth, the vehicle, and the child Gabriel are attached.

Jan 7 Jack and Tammi Smith of Scottsdale, AZ, are named "persons of interest."  Police think they may know what happened to Gabriel.

On January 7, 2010, The Tempe Police Department identified Tammi and Jack Smith of Scottsdale AZ as persons of interest in this investigation. Tempe Police Investigators have indications that they have not shared information with investigators that may lead us to Gabriel Johnson.

Jan 9  Johnson extradited from Dade County Jail to Maricopa County Jail
On January 9, 2010,  Elizabeth Johnson was booked into Tempe City Jail after being extradited from Florida.
Elizabeth now faces charges of Kidnapping (a class two felony), Child Abuse (a class four felony), and Custodial Interference (a class four felony).  After being processed, Elizabeth was transported and booked into Maricopa County Jail and is being held on a cash only bond of $1,100,000.00.

Jan 12 - On 01/12/09, a media source stated that the name of "Craig Cherry" (who was later found by T.P.D. and discovered to be Tammi Smith's first generation cousin) was on a court petition for paternity regarding Gabriel Johnson. I telephoned Judge McVey who stated paternity was not protested by the mother. Logan McQueary was determined to be the father. Judge McVey assisted with providing the means in which T.P.D. could have a copy of all court documents regarding Gabriel Johnson (FC-2009-007470.

Jan 14 - On 01/14/09, I interviewed Tammi Smith while at the T.P.D. station. Tammi voluntarily provided a hand writing analysis. Tammi admitted that Elizabeth wrote down her cousin (Craig Cherry) on the paternity document. During a police interview, I presented Tammi with the court documents regarding paternity of Gabriel Johnson. Tammi then admitted to writing her cousin's (Craig Cherry) name on the court document regarding Craig as a possible father of Gabriel Johnson. Tammi read out loud the sentence which she wrote on the court document. The sentence included Craig's name. Craig Cherry was interviewed by the Tempe Police Department. It was learned through my investigation that he has never met Elizabeth Johnson.

Tammi Smith also admitted to asking a friend if she could use the friend's husband's name on the paternity paperwork for Gabriel Johnson. I later identified the friend. The identified witness stated on the day in which Tammi was traveling to the court house with Elizabeth, Tammi telephoned her. Tammi asked her friend if she could use her friend's husband's name on the paternity court document for Gabriel Johnson. The witness became angry with Tammi due to her request. Tammi told the witness that if she could use her friend's husband's name then it would create a problem for the father (Logan). The friend refused to allow Tammi to use her husband's name on the court form. The above listed court document was analyzed by D.P.S. Detective Alan Kreitl. According to Criminalist Kreitl's findings the court document (item #47) contained the handwriting of Tami Smith based on her sample (item #57). For complete details, please refer to D.P.S. report #2010-701760.

Tammi stated that Logan threatened her on 12/28/09 after a court hearing in Judge McVey's court room. The threat was allegedly made via telephone. Unknown to Tammi, Logan recorded the call. T.P.D. heard the call and no threat was made. Logan told Tammi to stop calling him. Logan hung up the phone line. Shortly after Jack Smith called Logan. Logan, once again disconnected the phone line. Tammi and Jack Smith have used the media to make many statements which later have been found to be inaccurate regarding their involvement in the investigation.

On 01/14/2010, after Tammi Smith participated in a police interview she was then interviewed by a reported from K.P.H.O. It is important to note that on 01/14/2010 Tammi did admit to writing her cousin's name on the paternity document concerning Gabriel Johhnson. Following the police interview, Tammi spoke to the media outside of the Tempe Police Station located at 120 E. 5th Street, Tempe. K.P.H.O. (Channel 5)
released a media story on 01/15/2010 in which Tammi acknowledged the forgery by saying "I made a poor decision back when I met Elizabeth." "Yes I helped her put another name." She then told the public to pray about it.

****No idea what date Tammi sent this to Elizabeth
I know you didn't kill him, but the police don't know that. There just need to verify he's not dead or hurt and you can live the rest of your life, not having to hide anymore!!! All you have to do is take a long drive and see a cop on the side of the road in a city and give him the paper and ask him to call her to va...rify you two are safe. You don't need to tell him why....As one of the officers said, you are not in trouble, you have the right to take your own child. But it's like having a parking ticket and robbing the bank to pay your parking ticket. If you never paid that parking ticket, you wouldn't be in trouble...But if you do an armed robbery at the bank they will send out a Nationwide search for you like they will in a few days if you don't show that he is safe. But it needs to be verified through a police officer in order to stop it from going to the FBI.

OTHERWISE: They are starting a Homicide Investigation! What that means is: Right now (today), your not in trouble. Your one of millions of mothers that leaves the state to keep her child safe from the horrible father. It's NOT kidnapping! You have every right to take your own child. You can even look on Public Reco...rds, there is NO warrent out for you....BUT, because of what you said, if you don't do this in the next few days, it will turn into a Murder Investigation and Detective Ramirez can no longer help. The FBI will pick the case up and you will be seen on America's Most Wanted! Your face will be seen everywhere and nobody will want to help you because they will believe you are a murderer... You will be going on with your life and when you least expect it (someone you thought was your friend wanted a $25,000.00 reward, and quitely turned you in).
