Debbie Collier, a Georgia woman who was killed, posted a series of selfies in December 2020 after she said “faced” on a sidewalk – long before she went missing under mysterious circumstances and was found dead in the woods 60 miles from her Athens home Went.
The Facebook caption read, “Look what I did to myself when I encountered it on a concrete pavement.” “I have no makeup on my right eye.”
Collier’s Facebook account appears to be a joint account under both her name and that of her husband’s: “Debbie Steve Collier.”
Images show scratches and bruises around Collier’s right eye and around his forehead.
Missing Georgia mom Debbie Collier found naked and clutching burnt tree under embankment: Documents
A spokeswoman for the Athens-Clark County Police Department told Fox News Digital that they have no records of any domestic calls made to Collier or her husband or their addresses.
Dr. Emma Lew, a former Florida forensic pathologist, said the root of the injuries could only be identified in general terms, but “would be consistent with a fall.”
The damage was somewhat “hard and relatively flat, at least because of the part of the object that came into contact with it.”
After Collier’s remains – naked and partially burned – strewn an embankment a quarter mile away from his rental car, Habersham County deputies launched a murder investigation earlier this month. According to police documents, the 59-year-old real estate office manager was clutching a tree and had “charo” on his stomach.
Investigators revealed on Wednesday evening that they had no evidence that his death was involved in kidnapping or suicide. A spokesman for the sheriff’s office did not immediately respond to a request for comment on Thursday afternoon.
Debbie Collier case: Criminal profiler warns of possible ‘budding serial killer’ after mother’s murder
Collier went missing on September 10 after reportedly sending $2,385 to his daughter on the Venmo app and a cryptic message reading, “They won’t let me love you, there’s a key to the house in a blue flower pot near the door. ” In the afternoon her daughter and husband reported her missing.
A review of Betty’s Venmo account found that in early August, she received multiple transfers from Steve Collier — and it appears as though Debbie and Steve Collier shared the account.
On August 2, the first payment included a “To: Amanda Bearden from: Debbie Collier” note.
The daughter, Amanda Bearden, told police the final message with a payment of $2,385 “scared her” and it was “unusual” for her mother to leave without telling anyone. She and Steve Collier alerted the police and filed a missing person’s report.

Investigators used a SiriusXM radio in Collier’s rental car to track it down a highway 60 miles away in Clarksville, Georgia, near where his remains were found by a Habersham County K-9 unit. According to the missing person’s report, Collier was using a hired Chrysler Pacifica because his own vehicle was in the shop.
Anyone with knowledge of Collier’s case is asked to contact Habersham Sheriff’s Investigator Black Garrison or George Casson at 706-839-0559 or 706-839-0560, respectively.
