Video showing slain Georgia mom Debbie Collier’s husband parking cars for a University of Georgia football game on the day she disappeared would appear to eliminate him from a potential list of suspects.
Collier, 59, was found dead on September 11, a day after her husband, Steve Collier, and daughter, Amanda Bearden, reported her missing. Her body was found 60 miles away from her Athens home, down a ravine off Georgia Route 15 in Habersham County, as CrimeOnline previously reported.
She was naked and partially charred. Investigators have not released a cause of death.
An unnamed law enforcement source told Fox News that Steve Collier was seen on video parking cars between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. on September 10. He reported her missing at 6 p.m., after returning home. Since Debbie Collier was last seen alive at a Family Dollar store in Clayton at about 3:20, the source said, it was unlikely her husband could have made the trip, kill his wife, and get back home.
Habersham County officials, who are conducting the investigation, have not named any suspects or persons of interest in the case.
“Came home, my wife wasn’t home, her driver’s license still in there, the rental car is gone, and her daughter’s here,” Steve Collier said on his 911 call. “We’re kind of worried about what’s happening and where she’s at. I was wondering if you could send somebody over here.”
Debbie Collier allegedly sent Bearden more than $2,000 via Venmo shortly after leaving the Family Dollar with a cryptic note implying that she was being held against her will.
Investigators found her abandoned rental car not far from her body.
