To me, the body language of the Smith Couple- Jack and Tammi, whom Elizabeth Johnson told they could adopt Baby Gabriel is suspicious. My feeling is that it indicates that police should change their status from “People of Interest” to “People Who Should Be In the Next Cell Next to Elizabeth Johnson” While the recently released photos of the baby show him alive on the 26th of December, albeit abused and upset, what is equally disturbing to me was Tammi Smith’s sound bite on camera. Her communication skills and body language speak volumes to me.
It is DEFINITELY odd that Tammi was:
a. in contact with Elizabeth during the time period the baby went missing and
b. that she was the only one allowed in the jail to visit Gabriel’s mother (whom she is attempting to throw under the bus by saying that she believed Elizabeth duped her and gave the baby to another couple. But now the more we learn, it appears more and more that TAMMI SMITH MAY BE THE MASTERMIND behind this whole ordeal .
c. that she is still in contact with Elizabeth
d. that Tammi said told her she must be “worried sick” when she had not heard from Elizabeth
e. has a way too confident swagger and loud tone as part of her demeanor
e. that she first met Elizabeth at a Boston airport.

But first and foremost-WHAT IS THE STORY WITH TAMMI AND JACK SMITH’S BODY LANGUAGE?
When you read a person’s body language, the FIRST thing you need to do is TRUST YOUR GUTS. If you feel sick to your stomach, queasy, strange, have an odd feeling, have a disgusted or annoyed expression as you watch someone’s movements and listen to what they say. pay close attention to your instincts.
As soon as I first watched the interview of Tammi and Jack Smith – the adoptive couple, whom Elizabeth allegedly met at an airport and to whom she wanted to give her baby, I felt nauseated watching them. Well before they were declared “persons of interest” my initial reaction was that these two MUST have something to do with the child’s disappearance.
Besides their age (Jack must be in this mid to late 60’s) which I thought was a bit old to want to raise a toddler, their body language gave it all away.
MY HUMAN LIE DETECTOR IS PRETTY CONCLUSIVE
Their Lie Detector tests came back inconclusive what that means is that they were telling the truth and lying as well.I definitely don’t need a lie detector test to tell you these two are lying and know a lot more than they are revealing!
As A Human Lie Detector and someone who can read their body language tells, one of them (Jack) is starting to feel the pressure while his possibly sociopathic wife still thinks she can run the show and manipulate everyone like she has no doubt done in her past.
But now things are really different. She has the eagle eye of the public watching her every move. She has me deciphering her body language cues, and she has Nancy Grace grabbing a hold of her like a pit bull with a bone. Nancy won’t let go until she finds out the truth about what she knows about Baby Gabriel and neither will I .
JACK SMITH’S BODY LANGUAGE SAYS HE IS FREAKING OUT!
Jack consistently appears nervous EVERY show on which he has appeared since day one. From Geraldo Live to the News to the morning shows, to Nancy Grace , the signals of deception and discomfort are getting worse and worse and more and more evident.
The following body signals of DECEPTION and INNER UNEASINESS, which are even more consistent to date are:
excessive eye blinking
thumb twirling around one another as his hands are clasped
uncomfortable body movement
head tilting to the side and most of all
constantly looking over at his wife for reassurance.
NANCY GETS RIGHT TO THE POINT ABOUT THEIR KNOWING MORE THAN THEY ARE SAYING ABOUT BABY GABRIEL
Jack is nervous, uncomfortable and clearly felt like jumping out of his skin when Nancy Grace interviewed the couple on her show before their lie detector test was found to be inconclusive.
When Nancy said she was interpreting that they were both people of interest not because they harmed little Baby Gabriel, but because they knew the whereabouts of baby Gabriel, all of Jack’s body language tells of discomfort became more evident and more frequent.
TAMMI’S “TELLS” ON NANCY GRACE
When Nancy bulldozed past all the BS and gets to the point and confronts Tammi directly by saying “ “What about it Tammi Smith?’ We see Tammi Smith purse her lips, fidget with her hands- roll her thumbs, look up , and purse her lips before responding to Nancy’s question.
Tammi begins, “UM “ WELL I’M , (signal of deception) I HAVE TRIED TO CALL ( closes her eyes and looks down- signal of deception) CALL (- signal of deception) THE DETECTIVE RAMIREZ (said slowly and laboriously as she looks away to the side- a clear signal of deception) Then she says” IT’S NOT THAT I KNOW WHERE HE iS , I HAVE BEEN TRYING TO BRAINSTORM (said loudly for emphasis- another signal of deception) WHERE HE IS!
NEWSFLASH!!!! TAMMI’S SIGNALAS OF DECEPTION AND DELUSIONS OF GRANDEUR
Here is a NEWSFLASH!!!!! When ANYONE BEGINS A SENTENCE WITH UM “ WELL I’M , I HAVE TRIED TO CALL”it usually means that they are lying through their teeth!
Tammi was definitely NOT expecting Nancy’s blunt and direct question out of the start gate . It caught her off guard so she is looking down and pursing her lips to get back her footing and try to manufacture some type of answer.
When she looks to the side after she says she tried to call Detective Ramirez many times today, it says she is lying through her teeth again. She may have returned his calls but she did not initiate them. That is for sure!
Her constant lip pursing and finger rolling and body fidgeting are ALLLLLL clues that she is not telling us the truth and KNOWS where Baby Gabriel may be located.
TAMMI SMITH BODY LANGUAGE AFTER SHE SAW ELIZABETH IN PRISON
“I looked in her eyes and I can tell you that baby is alive.” This is what Tammi the press in her interviews after visiting Elizabeth in prison. First of all when did Tammi smith became a bona fide body language expert to tell if a baby is alive by looking in someone’s eyes?
She spoke with devoid of emotion and in a loud obnoxious tone. That is a HUGE red flag to me. If a person was convinced the baby was alive they would show a tone of relief in their vocal tone. This was clearly NOT the case here. If the person was convinced that Elizabeth was hiding the baby or that the baby was harmed or that another couple was given the baby and not them (as Elizabeth promised) the person would show signs of anger, upset, and/or frustration. This was clearly not the case with Tammi. She showed NO affect whatsoever.
Instead, she showed monotone combined with a smugness and a n inappropriate and disturbing smile often seen with sociopaths.
TOO MUCH CONFIDENCE IN HER WALK, FACIAL EXPRESSION, AND LOUD VOCAL TONE
When we see Tammi walk into the prison we see her with a confident bounce it really put me off. There was way too much confidence. It seemed to me as though she was masterminding the whole ordeal and knew exactly what was going on.
Her voice also showed that smug confidence. Besides the telltale monotone, the other thing which stuck me was the volume of her voice. It was way too loud for the situation at hand. It indicated that she was showcasing during her interviews with the media following her prison visit with Elizabeth. This overly confident vocalization is cause for concern as she has done this in all of her interviews prior to the prison visit as well. This tone is a giveaway that she no doubt knows what is going on.
TAMMI MAY BE THINKING SHE IS MORE CLEVER THAN THE REST-
It is also clear that Tammi fancies herself as an important person- a guru of sorts who is called upon to “brainstorm” with the detective— Yeah Right! This type of thinking, where you hear delusions of grandeur is very common with sociopaths. I’m not accusing Tammi of being a sociopath, but I am just reporting that there may be a red flag here.
When the text message was read by Nancy that Elizabeth Johnson wrote to the couple the fact that she said that they must be “worried sick” is another red flag. It speaks to the control and the hold that Tammi no doubt has on her . Otherwise, why would she care that Tammi was “worried sick?” Maybe she was telling Tammi that she was afraid she was “worried sick” because they both planned where to hide the baby and when Elizabeth wasn’t in constant contact with Tammi the Masterminder, Tammi may have been “worried sick” that Elizabeth somehow botched their plan.
THE CONTROL FREAK FACTOR
Another body language tell on Nancy’s show that struck me as being odd was how Tammi controlled the interview in terms of what Jack said on camera. You could see her tapping him on the leg as a signal to shut up. When a person monitors what another person says, they are trying to control what comes out of that person’s mouth so that it does not damage them or their plans.
WAY TOO MUCH CONFIDENCE AND NOT ENOUGH EMOTION ARE THE GIVEAWAYS
The inappropriate smiling, the smug expression, the chuckling, the deliberate walk and stance, the running the show in terms of monitoring what he husband says shows a person who thinks she knows what she is doing and thinks he is running the show. Her monotone voice is the giveaway and the loudness factor during her interviews . Her show of intense confidence in light of this situation shows extreme arrogance to me.
The huge giveaway as far as I am concerned as mentioned earlier, is in the monotone of her voice. When people have emotionally invested in trying to adopt a child thinking that child would be a part of their life, they don’t sound like Tammi sounded in ALL of her interviews, They have a little sadness, frustration, or even anger in their tone, They are NOT monotone ad flat in their vocal affect. So this is what disturbs me greatly.
Tammi may think she is smart but as this case continues she will soon find out that law enforcement is a lot smarter.
WHAT LAW ENFORCEMENT SHOULD DO TO GET ELIZABETH TO TALK
Tammi will never break and will stick to her orchestrated stories because of the nature of her personality and possible sociopathy, But Elizabeth WILL break, It is obvious that she responds to strong women as indicated by her statement to Tammi that she thought Tammi would be “worried sick” since she hadn’t heard from Elizabeth when she was on the run with the baby during Christmas.
That is why I believe that Law Enforcement needs to use a strong female detective with a maternal type of personality to try and pry out the details out of Elizabeth.
Also a jail mate informant in her cell could help as well. If they put an older woman whom Elizabeth would perceive as maternal, this would be another yet avenue to gather information about Gabriel’s whereabouts or if he is alive.
MORE QUESTIONS AND CAUSE FOR CONCERN
I hope that what she says is true, that the baby by the grace of God, was given to a loving couple.
But what reputable person would take a baby without informing authorities about what happened?
Why would she have to give the baby medication to make him groggy?
Why was she in Texas?
Why was she in San Antonio Texas?
Was it because San Antonio is right near Juarez, Mexico?
Was she trying to have someone smuggle a silent (medicated and groggy) baby across the border to Mexico?
Was the baby going to be used in some type of Satanic ritual?
Who was this “couple”?
Was the baby going to sold in an illegal adoption ring?
Was there a lot of money on Elizabeth when they arrested her in Miami?
What was she dong I Miami?
Was there a Miami connection between the “couple” in San Antonio?
These are questions that law enforcement needs to find out.
THE BABY COULD BE RECOGNIZED AS HE GETS OLDER
The fact that Tammi said that Elizabeth told her that “no one would recognize the baby as he got older,” may be a huge clue that shouldn’t be overlooked.
That is way too much thinking and plotting about the future of this child. I wonder if Elizabeth really said this to Tammi or that Tammi manufactured this statement. If she did, it is evident to me that she knows what was going on. This statement alone raises a HUGE red flag! No one thinks that far in advance as to what a child would look like, if they were going to give a child away to a strange couple.
Their intention is to get the child out of their life, not imagine what the child would look like in the future an how that child would change and how no one would recognize the child. That is wayyyyyy too much information!
What Tammi is not aware of is that now there are computer imaging programs where you can input a baby;s photo of how they look now and how they would look in the future. So no matter how anyone tries to disguise the child, there would be a representation of how he would look at different stages of his development. This is based on the soft tissue data and facial measurements and future bone growth data applied to the computer analysis.
We have all seen fliers of missing children we often receive through the mail which show a photo of how the child looked when they went missing and a representation of how they would look now.
WAS JAILHOUSE INTERVIEW BETWEEN TAMMI AND ELIZABETH TAPED?
What in the world were Tammi and Elizabeth talking about for 45 minutes in the jail? Wasn’t it videotaped and they are just not releasing that information to the public? I certainly hope that is the case. To allow this meeting to take pace without taping it is unacceptable.
I am hoping that it was taped and that law enforcement is using the information to help locate the baby. But if it wasn’t taped, I question law enforcement’s competency. Even though it is a different state, all interviews with Casey Anthony are videotaped in the jail. So why wasn’t the interview with Tammi and Elizabeth taped?
TAMMI’S POSSIBLE INVOLVEMENT- PATTERNS AND SIGNALS
The fact that Elizabeth hired a baby sitter look after the baby while she was out of the hotel room instead of leaving him alone says that she had some type of concern for the baby deep down and definitely wanted him alive. Maybe she was trying to sell the baby to this” couple” which makes me wonder how much money law enforcement found on Elizabeth when she was arrested.
Since there is a previous history of Tammi Smith trying to involve a relative into her scheme- her first cousin, there may possibly be yet another relative that Tammi Smith may have tried to enroll in her attempt to make sure that the baby boy would somehow eventually be hers. Usually people follow patterns and one pattern to look at would be Tammi’s manipulation of involving her relatives in her schemes.
Anothe huge telll for me is seen in the above photo of Tammi followimg her jailhouse meetig with Elizabeth. When asked pougnant questions, she uncharactriscially looked away as you see, This is a HUGE tell that he knows what has happened.
As I said earlier, if someone though they were going to have rights to adopt a child and was promised the child by the mother and now thought that mother harmed their future adoptive child, they would be enraged or sad. They would NOT be smiling and “brainstorming” or sounding or acting like Tammi Smith! www.drlilliangass.com
