It has been more than three weeks since mother Debbie Collier was found dead in rural Georgia.
Police still have not identified any potential suspects linked to her death, adding to the mystery of the case.
However, police have since announced that her husband Steven was caught video-working between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. on Sept. 10, FOX News reported.
It was the same day that security footage caught Collier at a Family Dollar store in Clayton.
She bought several items, including a tarp, poncho, lighter, tote bag, and paper towels.
Cops have since determined that Collier sat in her rented Chrysler Pacifica for 10 minutes before exiting the store.
Collier was known to have transferred more than $2,300 to her daughter Amanda Bearden through Venmo, but the transfer was made while she was in the store’s parking lot.
Collier was found dead less than 24 hours later on September 11 and police are continuing to search for her killer.
But police have said her death appears if it was “deliberate” and not the work of a serial killer.
And an unfired bullet was discovered near Collier’s remains.
Former homicide detective Pat Diaz told FOX News: “It’s an important piece of evidence, and it’s something [one or more suspects] could have fallen on the way out.”
Col. Murray Kogod of the Habersham County Sheriff’s Office revealed, “It will take significantly more than the 19 days that have elapsed since discovery to solve this crime.”
A series of chilling 911 calls from her family before her death have been revealed.
A caller posing as Diane Shirley, Collier’s sister, mentioned a previous encounter with an unidentified ex-con.
She said: “She said that about my niece [Collier] had an accident about a month ago.”
Shirley added that Collier was driving behind a truck when a can of paint fell out of the vehicle and hit her car.
She said: “The paint went everywhere and the driver tried to convince my sister not to tell the cops he was driving because he was on probation.
“And there was a condition of his parole that he wasn’t allowed to drive.”
Police confirmed to FOX News that Collier was involved in an accident on April 30.
It is not known whether this was an accident.
And around 6 p.m. on September 10, Steven said to dispatchers, “Come home, my wife wasn’t home, her driver’s license still there, rental car gone and her daughter is here.”
It was the first official missing person report.
Steven said he was out most of the day “parking cars for the football game.”
Collier was at the store for just over 10 minutes and police said she appeared “calm”.
Minutes later, she frostily shared with her daughter, “They won’t let me go.”
She also told her that there was a key under a flower pot.
The time window of her death was narrowed between September 10 at 3:09 p.m. and September 11 at 12:44 p.m.
She was naked, her stomach was charred and she was holding on to a small tree in a ravine, police said.
They also discovered the remains of a fire.
Her death was ruled a homicide, but investigators have ruled out that she was kidnapped or took her own life.
