The next day, Collier’s body was found 60 miles from her home. It was naked and partly burned, which seemed like a quick way to hide evidence.
In an emotional interview, Bearden told CBS 46, “Someone took my whole world away.” She also said, “She was a beautiful, kind, giving woman, and she didn’t deserve any of this.” I want my mom to get her due.”
Bearden said she last saw her mother the day before she went missing. She has also been arrested many times before.
She was arrested in 2008 and 2012 because she got into fights with her boyfriends. In the second case, she was charged with misdemeanor battery, simple battery, disorderly conduct, and criminal trespass. The charges from 2008 were dropped after she finished a pre-trial intervention program.
