PHOENIX – Newly released audio tapes reveal more about the relationship between the parents of a child who has been missing for almost a year.

Elizabeth Johnson is still in jail and the whereabouts of her baby, Gabriel, are still unknown.

The baby was last seen Dec. 27 in San Antonio when he was 7 months old.

On that same day, Gabriel’s father, Logan McQueary, recorded a telephone conversation he had with Johnson where she admits to killing the baby. Johnson is also heard saying McQueary ruined her life and drove her to kill Gabriel.

In the recorded phone conversation McQueary says, “You did not hurt Gabriel.” Johnson replies, “Yes I did. I suffocated him. I suffocated him and he turned blue and I put him in his diaper bag and put him in the trash can.”

Johnson later told police she had given Gabriel to a couple in San Antonio. She remains in custody facing charges of custodial interference and kidnapping.
