TBI: Tennessee woman promised baby to 7 adoptive families

A Madison woman accused of fleeing with her newborn baby after agreeing to give it up for adoption to seven separate families is the newest addition to the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation's Top Ten Most Wanted list.

Tiffany Lynne Jordan-Johnson, 32, has been indicted on seven felony counts of illegal payments in connection with the placement of a child, six counts of theft and separate counts of forgery and attempted forgery as part of an alleged scheme.

According to the TBI, between November 2012 and March 2013, a pregnant Jordan-Johnson agreed to let seven different families adopt her child after he or she was born, according to a TBI release. She also allegedly began accepting payments from parents and adoption agencies meant to help cover rent and living expenses, although authorities believe she lived in a rent-free, government-subsidized apartment.

Once she met with each family at her Madison home, many of them began purchasing items and holding baby showers for the newborn.

After her child was born in Dyer, Tenn., in April 2013, Jordan-Johnson, her baby, and the youngest of her six other children could not be found. TBI and Metro Police officials are still trying to establish her whereabouts.

Jordan-Johnson has a prior history of misdemeanor assault, the TBI release said. Anyone with knowledge of her whereabouts is urged to contact authorities at 1-800-TBI-FIND. A $1,000 reward has been offered for information leading to her arrest.
