A day before a 59-year-old Georgia woman was found dead in a woods, naked and partially burned, her daughter received a confusing message claiming to be from her.
“You won’t let me go, I love you, there’s a key to the house in the blue flowerpot by the door,” Deborah Collier wrote, according to the New York Post.
That was not all.
Along with the cryptic message, Collier wired $2,385 to her daughter, Amanda Bearden.

According to a missing person report obtained by People, Bearden called her mother’s phone “but she didn’t answer.”
Police also called Collier’s phone but were only connected to voicemail.
Collier left her home in Athens on September 9 with a debit card and her driver’s license.
Two days later, she was found in a ravine in Habersham County about 60 miles from her home, according to the Post.

Collier had driven away in a rental car because her car was being repaired. The vehicle was tracked using the satellite radio signal and the police were dispatched.
According to a police report published by Fox News, the vehicle was found on September 11 next to an abandoned logging road. The report noted that a Tallulah Falls police officer said the vehicle was there on Saturday, but that the location was an area where parked vehicles were not uncommon.
A searching officer “observed a naked woman lying on her back and clutching a small tree with her right hand” about 30 feet off the road at the bottom of a ravine, according to the Habersham County Sheriff’s Office report.
According to the report, Collier had “charring on her abdomen.” A red tote bag was nearby, as was a partially burned blue tarp.
According to the report, Bearden told police at the scene that her mother had no mental health problems or suicidal thoughts and that she had a bad back and would not have gone far into the woods.
Bearden told police it was unusual for her mother to take a trip without informing the rest of her family.
Police ruled her death a homicide but said little else.
“Actions have been taken over the past few weeks to advance the investigation and gather evidence that could lead to the possible identification of the suspect,” the Habersham County Sheriff’s Office said, according to NowHabersham.
