[Crime Stories with Nancy Grace] Mystery Swirls: Mom Debbie Collier Found Stripped, Dead, Charred

Georgia police say the murder of Athens mom Debbie Collier is not a random event. Detectives say this is a targeted event. Collier went missing after sending a bizarre text to her daughter.

The bizarre message reportedly sent by Debbie Collier to her daughter, Amanda Bearden, along with $2,385 through Venmo says, “They are not going to let me go love you there is a key to the house in the blue flower pot by the door.”

After receiving the message, Collier’s daughter tried to call her mom but could not get through. Collier was found the next day in a ravine, naked, her body burned.  Police tracked a rental vehicle Collier was using to a wooded area 60 miles away from the family’s Athens home.

Collier’s husband told police that he last saw his wife at about 9 p.m. on Friday, September 9, as he was going to bed. The husband went to work on Saturday morning and told investigators that his wife’s vehicle was still in the driveway at that time.

The New York Post reports that the couple’s neighbor said they heard some sort of commotion going on at Collier’s home the night before she vanished.

Anyone with information on the case should contact Habersham Sheriff’s Investigators Cale Garrison at 706-839-0559 or George Cason at 706-839-0560.
