A woman in Georgia was found naked and dead in a ravine on Sunday after sending a strange text message to her daughter through a payment app and being reported missing to the police, with police officers looking into what or who caused her death.

Debbie Collier, a 59-year-old woman from Clarke County, Georgia, was found in a off-road wooded area that was more than an hour from her home, naked and “grasping a small tree with her right hand,” with burns in her upper body, according to the New York Post.

Collier was reported missing by her family, whom she lived with, after she had been gone since the night before. Her daughter, Amanda Bearden, said that she found a strange message after her mother sent her US$2,385 through Venmo that prompted them to call the police, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported.

“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,” the message ominously said.

Collier reportedly left the house in a rented black Chrysler Pacifica with only her credit card and driver’s license. Her car was later tracked down to the neighboring Habersham County after a Sirius XM representative was able to help them find the car through its satellite radio signals.

The officers found the car on what is described as a “defunct logging road,” where they found her body over 30 feet away from the vehicle, with a burned tarp and a red bag found near the remains.

Bearden, who was with the officers when they discovered the body, grew “hysterical” after seeing the corpse. Collier’s husband Steve and some of their relatives later watched as the police fished her body out of the ravine.

Officers have not yet released a potential cause of death for Collier, nor have they said to the press if they have any suspects in the woman’s killing.
