Friday 23 September 2022 04:02 AM Georgia mom posted horrific picture with a black eye on Facebook years before ... trends now
A Georgia woman killed under mysterious circumstances and found naked and burned posted a series of selfies to Facebook showing off a severe eye injury in December 2020, long before she went missing and was found in a wooded ravine.
Debbie Collier posted the pictures to Facebook on an account she seemingly shared with her husband, Steve, and said she 'face planted on the concrete sidewalk.'
The real estate office manager, 59, was found naked clinging to a tree by sheriff's deputies a day after vanishing from the modest home she shared with husband Steven, 67, in Athens, Georgia, 60 miles away. Parts of her body were charred.
Athens-Clarke County Police Department reportedly confirmed they had no record of any domestic calls involving Collier or her husband, or any made to their address at all.
The grisly pictures show scrapes and bruising around her right eye and on her forehead and was posted with the caption 'Look what I did to myself.' She also says she did not have any makeup on her right eye in the pictures.

Collier's cause of death has not been revealed, nor is it publicly known if she died in the ravine or was taken there after being killed
Eerily, just hours before her death, she had sent her daughter Amanda Bearden $2,385 via payment app Venmo along with a chilling last message.
It read: 'They are not going to let me go, love you there is a key to the house in the blue flower pot by the door.'
A few feet from that lay a larger uprooted tree. Parts of the roots were scorched. Forensic gloves lay nearby along with pieces of paper and what appears to be a strip of a book cover.
And that is where the trail of tape fragments ended.
The site was only roughly 25 feet from the roadway and vehicles could be heard clearly passing by after we followed the path of the killer or killers.

Debbie showed no hint of any personal problems or worries while at work, stunned staff at her real estate office told DailyMail.com.

A 15-minute hike through piles of dead leaves and timber led to a site downhill where DailyMail.com reporter spotted part of a tree that had been sawn off
'We are all in a state of complete shock at what has happened,' said one employee at Carriage House Realty in Athens, where she was the front office manager.
'Debbie had been here for seven or eight years. We are still taking this in,' added the staff member, who did not want to be named. 'She never mentioned any personal issues in her life.'
In another twist, DailyMail.com can reveal that police had spotted the Pacifica – rented from Enterprise by the mom because her own vehicle was being repaired – unlocked and unoccupied beside the old logging road at 5pm the previous day.
But unoccupied cars were routinely spotted at that location, according to the report.
That was an hour before Collier's husband reported her missing in a call to Athens-Clarke County Police, according to the case report obtained by DailyMail.com.
The following day, the car was located in connection with the missing person inquiry at 12:28pm.
