A mum who was found dead in a ravine has shared photos of a horror black eye she suffered – years before her mysterious disappearance.
Debbie Collier, from Georgia, revealed she had “face planted” on the sidewalk in December 2020.
His right eye was swollen and his skin was scratched and bruised.
Collier, 59, disappeared without a trace on September 10 before being found dead the next day.
Cops said Collier transferred more than $2,000 to his daughter Amanda Bearden via Venmo, according to a police report seen by the US Sun.
But, the account was in her husband Steven’s name, according to FOX5.
Collier told Bearden, “They won’t let me go, I love you.”
She also told him that there was a key under a flowerpot.
Collier also appears to share her Facebook account with Steven.
The mum was found in the woods holding a small tree with her hand.
Officers said his stomach appeared charred and they discovered the remains of a fire.
Detectives found a red tote bag and a partially burnt blue tarp as they scoured the scene for clues.
Collier left the house in a rental Chrysler Pacifica car, taking only his driver’s license and bank card.
Cops used radio technology to track the car and it was found near a highway about 60 miles from her home.
The vehicle was found near Highway 15 in Clarkesville.
Police said cars were “regularly” stopping in the area, according to the report.
Bearden, who was “hysterical” at the scene, told detectives his mother had no mental health issues. She also denied that Collier was suicidal.
Habersham County officers concluded the incident appears to be drug-related, but could not confirm which substances were involved.
They ruled out that Collier was kidnapped.
Steven said he last saw his wife around 9 p.m. on September 9.
The couple reportedly slept in separate bedrooms because Steven was known to snore, according to WSB-TV.
Neighbors claimed a ‘commotion’ had occurred at her home in Athens the night before she disappeared.
A woman, who has not been named, told the New York Post that there were “loud screams” and “fighting”.
But another neighbour, known as Ricky, described Steven and Collier as “reclusive”, adding that they would not come to barbecues held in the area.
Investigators are currently treating Collier’s death as a homicide.
