Family Dollar Manager Found Burned To Death At Gruesome Murder Scene

Debbie Collier murder: Burned Georgia office manager last seen alive at Family Dollar near brutal crime scene – Fox News

Debbie Collier was last seen alive at a Family Dollar store down the road from the gruesome crime scene, a law enforcement source tells Fox News Digital. The Georgia office manager was found naked and burned in the woods near a rural highway earlier this month.

Amanda Bearden, 36, told police she received $2,385 from her mother over Venmo, grew afraid, and filed a missing-person report. Deputies found her remains the next day.

Investigators obtained video footage of the victim entering the store and remaining there until 3:09 p.m. Her body was discovered on Sunday, September 11 at 12:44 p.m.

Investigators found Collier naked and burned, clutching at a tree near her abandoned vehicle, with a bizarre Venmo payment.

Amanda Bearden, the Venmo recipient, has a rap sheet going back more than a decade for domestic violence calls.

Bearden’s mother was a vibrant, strong soul who valued kindness, empathy, and understanding. She recognized the beauty and grace in everything she saw and experienced around her.

Police have served several search warrants in the case, but have not publicly identified any suspect or person of interest.
