Body Bags with Joseph Scott Morgan: Disturbing Findings in the Death of Debbie Collier

Rewind 15 seconds
Fast Forward 15 seconds

Debbie Collier, a Georgia resident, is reported missing on September 10th, 2022 after sending her daughter, Amanda, a Venmo payment for $2,385 with a message saying, “They are not going to let me go, love you.” She was found dead the next day in a ravine more than an hour north from her home. The newly released autopsy report reveals that when her body was found 80% of it was covered in second and third degree burns. Which is one of many reasons why the public was surprised to hear that the death has been ruled a suicide.

In this episode of Body Bags, forensics expert Joseph Scott Morgan and special guest co-host  Dave Mack discuss Collier’s burns, the state of her clothing, the lack of debris found in her trachea, why police have ruled this a suicide, and much more.
