Arrest Made in Baby Gabriel Case
A stunning arrest in the mystery of missing baby Gabriel. Tammi Smith, who once tried to adopt the baby, was charged today with conspiracy to commit custodial interference and forgery.
INSIDE EDITION's Les Trent spoke to Smith and her husband Jack after police in Tempe, Arizona, called them "persons of interest" in the disappearance of baby Gabriel right after Christmas.
Les Trent asked, "Are you telling police everything you know?"
"Yes, everything. We're even brainstorming to find any other information that we may think is even insignificant in this case," said Tammi Smith.
With his wife now under arrest, Jack Smith told INSIDE EDITION by phone, "Somebody is going to have egg on their face and it's not going to be me. We did nothing."
Baby Gabriel's mother, Elizabeth Johnson, is jailed on kidnapping charges. She claims she gave away baby Gabriel to complete strangers in a park in San Antonio, Texas. She now refuses to cooperate with police.
Tammi Smith told INSIDE EDITION that she and Johnson were complete strangers when they met at the airport in Indianapolis and Johnson offered to let her adopt baby Gabriel.
Tammi said, "Why would we withhold information that could possibly get us in trouble? To save her?"
