22-year-old woman found dead near burning car, police suspect foul play

Authorities in Cobb County, Georgia, are investigating the tragic death of a 22-year-old woman whose body was discovered near a burning vehicle. The Cobb County Police Department is treating the case as a homicide and is urging anyone with information to come forward. The victim, identified as Beauty Couch, is remembered as a promising young woman who had a bright future ahead of her.

On August 23, the Austell Fire Department responded to a brush fire near Jerkins Boulevard and Landers Street. Upon arrival, they found a vehicle fully engulfed in flames. After extinguishing the fire, the vehicle was towed to a wrecker yard. Authorities then visited the registered address of the vehicle and learned that the owner’s daughter, Beauty Couch, had been missing since the previous morning. A search in the vicinity of the burned vehicle led to the discovery of a body that matched Couch’s description in the nearby wood line.

Beauty Couch’s mother, Kimbery Couch, expressed her devastation over the loss of her daughter. She described Beauty as a kind-hearted individual who never caused any trouble and was loved by everyone. Kimbery was shocked by the brutality of the crime, stating that her daughter did not deserve such treatment. The family revealed that Beauty lived in Austell with her adopted mother and had been last seen on Tuesday. They expressed their anguish over not being informed earlier about her disappearance.

Law enforcement officials have canvassed the neighborhood and are actively seeking answers regarding the circumstances surrounding Beauty Couch’s death. Foul play is suspected based on the initial scene investigation. The Cobb County Police Tip Hotline has been set up for anyone with information to come forward and assist in the investigation.
