ATLANTA, Ga. (CBS46) - The Habersham County Sheriff’s Office released new information today related to the disappearance and death of Deborrah Collier of Athens.
Steven Collier reported his wife missing on Sept. 10 after having seen her the night before.
Collier’s daughter, Amanda Bearden, also told police her mother sent her $2,385 through the Venmo app. She also reportedly received a message from her mother along with the money that said “They are not going to let me go, love, you.”
“My mom was my everything,” Bearden said on Wednesday. “Somebody took my whole world from me."
At this time, the Sheriff’s Office says there is no evidence to support that this incident was related to a kidnapping or that Collier’s death was a suicide.
Collier was found off a highway in Habersham County on September 11, 2022
Her vehicle was unlocked & empty and a search of the woods around the highway began. After officers found "what appeared to be the remains of a fire," they then discovered a "partially burnt" tarp, before discovering Collier's body.
She was described as a "nude female laying on her back, grasping a small tree with her right hand." She was "apparently burned with what appeared to be charring to her abdomen."
