The Georgia Mother Murder Case Debbie Collier just getting more mysterious.
As we reported, on Saturday, September 10, the 59-year-old man transferred $2,385 to his daughter Amanda Bearden and send a cryptic message that turns into a horror scene:
“They won’t let me go, love you”
Amanda tried to get her mother after the mysterious transfer but to no avail. That’s when she reported her disappearance to Athens Clark County Police. According to her husband, Steve Collier, she was last seen leaving home in a car – her daughter said she left with only her debit card and driver’s license. Sadly, her rental car and remains were found about 60 kilometers from her home on the same day.
The remains were burned and she was naked – a police report obtained by People from Saturday said her stomach was “burnt black”. However, the body was not too damaged to be identified, as police believe they recognized the woman immediately. There is also much evidence to be found, but it is not clear what it is.
Actually, through Fox News, Habersham County Sheriff’s Office revealed on Wednesday they had ruled out the possibility that this was a suicide OR a kidnapping – something that seemed likely from the initial message to her daughter. A criminal profiling researcher and psychotherapist believes this could be the work of a sex offender – or a “budding serial killer”.
Yeah, pretty scary… but maybe it’s not a serial killer?
Based on New York PostA neighbor of Debbie’s told them on Wednesday that there were several fights in the family the night before she disappeared:
“There was an uproar at the house. Someone is visiting on the weekend [and] in the evening, and there was shouting and loud fighting. “
The unnamed neighbor also revealed the annoying guest was a “young woman”. In fact, when talking with the investigator on September 10 according to Daily mailSteve admitted he and his wife slept in a “separate bed” because he snored.
As of Thursday, the case has been officially ruled a homicide, but no suspects have been named. The Collier family is also very private – they refuse to talk about the matter. But when the NYP reached out to a family friend on Wednesday for comment, that person cryptically said:
“There’s a reason we’ve kept quiet.”
Another neighbor also said the family is very antisocial – which raises more questions than it answers:
“When we asked each other out here on the block to cook, they never joined. They did not come or see each other. “
What a seriously strange case. Is it possible that this poor woman’s murder was likely committed by someone close to her? A chilling thought down my spine…
Right now, law enforcement is being very specific about what information they release to the public, but we’ll be sure to update you as this story continues. May Debbie rest in peace.
