Deputies in Louisiana arrested a suspect in the murder of a Georgia influencer, who was found dead near a burned car in a town outside of Atlanta.
The Cobb County Police Department said in a press release that 21-year-old Eugene Louis-Jocques was arrested by the St. Tammany Parish Sheriff’s Office in Louisiana in connection to the death of 22-year-old Beauty Couch.
Couch’s car was “fully engulfed in flames” in Austell, Georgia, when the fire department was dispatched to Joe Jerkins Boulevard and Landers Street in the town for a brush fire.
Police later responded to the address where the car is registered and found out the owner’s daughter, 22-year-old Beauty Couch, hadn’t been seen since the previous morning and drove the vehicle most often.
