“She was a sweet girl, she never bothered nobody,” her mother, Kimberly Couch, said in an interview WSB-TV. “She was a friend to everybody. She loved going skating. She loved going to work. She loved her clothes. She loved wearing her hair so pretty.”

Beauty was known in online circles because of her Instagram account, which had almost 150,000 followers. She often shared videos of herself skating, and had even started offering classes on skating.

Beauty's last Instagram post was on Aug. 19, and it featured her in a red bikini. Until more details become available about her case, there will likely be plenty of speculation online about exactly what happened to her, and are likely to pour through her profiles looking for clues. Whether that actually works or not remains to be seen, but police are also going to conduct an investigation on the ground to find answers.

Police said that if it hadn't been for the car fire, they might not have found Beauty's body for years.

According to WSB-TV, the Austell Police Department said that if the car had not been set on fire, it could have been years before they found the body. It was only because they returned to the scene after finding the car that they found her body in the first place. It's unclear why the car was set on fire, and also unclear exactly how Beauty had been killed.

“They took a part of my life from me. They took a part of my heart,” Beauty's mother said. “I want them to pay for what they did to my baby.”

It's currently unclear if police have any leads in the case.

Anyone with information about Couch’s death is asked to contact the Cobb County Police Tip Hotline at (770) 499-4111.
