Shocking twist in the Debbie Collier murder case revealed in dollar store surveillance video hours before the missing mother’s death

DEBBIE Collier did not appear anxious in security footage showing her buying a tarp and other items hours before her horrific death, investigators say.

The family dollar, in which Collier looked “calm and not afraid of anything,” is located in northern Georgia, just a few miles from where her charred remains were found.

Collier purchased a tarp, lighter, rain poncho and reusable tote bag around 2:55 p.m. on Sept. 10, according to the Habersham County Sheriff’s Office.

The store issued a receipt confirming what she had bought.

When the mother’s body was found on September 11, a shopping bag and a partially burned tarp were found near the crime scene. However, police would not say if they were the same items she had bought the day before.

An incident report revealed that Collier was found naked and lying on his back, holding on to a small tree with one hand.

Police said Family Dollar’s video helped them narrow Collier’s time of death to a time window that began at 3:09 p.m. on September 10 and discovered her body at 12:44 p.m. the next day.

The footage was obtained by police after receiving a tip that Collier’s daughter, Amanda Bearden, was spotted at the Family Dollar on Saturday.

However, the video showed that in the store it was actually Collier and not Bearden.

Bearden, 36, told police she received $2,385 via a Venmo payment from her mother with the powerful message, “They won’t let me go.”

Concerned, Bearden and her stepfather, Steve Collier, filed a missing persons report with the Athens-Clarke County Police Department.

While Collier’s message to her daughter was concerning, investigators last week publicly ruled out kidnapping and suicide.

Her death was ruled a manslaughter, but investigators have not yet determined what caused it, nor has a suspect or person of interest been publicly named.

Bearden also claimed that her mother left everything but her ID and debit card behind, but surveillance footage shows Collier had a large black purse and her car keys.

‘EXCITEMENT’

Neighbors revealed they heard a “commotion” coming from their home the night before she disappeared.

A woman told the New York Post that there was “loud shouting” and “fighting” at the home.

One of Collier’s son Jeffrey’s high school friends described Collier as “the classic mom of the south” in an interview with The Daily Beast.

Years before her death, Collier shared pictures of a black eye she suffered after being “face planted” on the sidewalk.

Cops have ruled that Collier’s death was a homicide but have not released full details, shrouding the case in mystery.

Officials revealed the incident was drug-related, although they did not confirm what substances were involved.

Private investigator Jason Jensen told The US Sun he doesn’t think she was shot or stabbed.

He said: “There was no mention of a bloody scene in the police report.”

Jensen believes Collier was probably strangled.

Bearden told detectives that Collier was not suicidal.

And officials have concluded that there is no evidence that she was kidnapped.

Paul Belli, a former lieutenant in the Sacramento County Sheriff’s Office, believes the investigation will be “pretty lengthy.”
