Neighbor heard “commotion” at murdered Georgia mother Debbie Collier’s home before she disappeared

The murdered Georgia mother, who was found dead and naked in a ravine, may have been involved in “screaming and fighting” at her home the night before she disappeared, according to a neighbor.

Debbie Collier, 59, was discovered by authorities with burn marks on her stomach on September 11, a day after her daughter and husband reported her missing.

“There was a commotion in the house,” a neighbor told the Post about the Saturday night before Debbie disappeared, noting that she frequently heard shouting from Collier’s home on a small, wooded hill.

The neighbor added: “Someone is coming to visit at the weekend [and] In the evening there is loud screaming and fighting,” says the visitor, a younger woman.

The victim’s husband, Steve Collier, told investigators he last saw his wife at 9pm on Saturday and their car was still in the driveway when he left for work the next morning.

He told investigators he slept apart from his wife because he snored and that he had not seen her before she disappeared, according to the Daily Mail. When approached by The Post, Steve declined to speak.

A neighbor claimed it existed "excitement" Debbie Collier's house the night before Georgia mother went missing.

On September 10, Collier cabled her daughter Amanda Bearden $2,385 and included a chilling note that said, “You won’t let me go, I love you, there’s a key to the house in the blue flower pot by the door.” ”

Police have declared her death a homicide and say they have executed search warrants and interviewed relevant people, but are silent on further details.

No suspects have been named in the case and the family has declined to speak publicly.

A friend of Collier’s declined to comment after opening the door of her home, but said cryptically, “There’s a reason we’re silent.”

Another neighbor in Athens, Ricky, said Debbie and her husband were reclusive people who didn’t mix with others on the street.

“When we got together out here on the block for a barbecue, they never attended,” he said, saying many locals didn’t even know their names. “They didn’t come to meetings.”

“They’ve been living here for quite a while as far as I can tell,” he said, noting that he’s lived on the same block for decades.

The neighbor told the post there was one "scream and fight" at home.

After Collier’s body was discovered, her quiet ring road on the outskirts of Athens was flooded with police cars, neighbors said, although they also noted they were not questioned or contacted by police.

“I don’t understand why this is taking so long,” Ricky said of the investigation, which is being conducted in part by the Georgia Bureau of Investigation. “They’re slow out here.”
