Instagram Influencer Beauty Couch Found Dead in Georgia, Boyfriend Arrested | Video

*The boyfriend of popular Instagram influencer Beauty Couch was arrested Friday as the prime suspect in her alleged murder. 

According to The Daily Beast, Georgia police found Couch’s body last week near her burning car in Austell. The 22-year-old had been missing since Tuesday morning, per a statement from the Cobb County Police Department. When her body was found, police immediately suspected foul play and linked 21-year-old Eugene Louis-Jocques of Naples, Florida to the crime. He was apprehended in Louisiana by the St. Tammany Parish Sheriff’s Proactive Enforcement Unit on charges of murder, arson, and aggravated assault.

“Let the message be that we do not take kindly to people who think they can commit a crime elsewhere and try to hide in St. Tammany Parish,” said Sheriff Randy Smith.

“We were happy to help our counterparts in Georgia by locating this suspect and taking him into custody so he may face justice and Miss Couch’s family can begin to receive closure during this difficult time.”

Louis-Jacques is reportedly awaiting extradition back to Georgia from St. Tammany Parish Correctional Center.

Couch was a college student and social media star with over 150,000 Instagram followers and mainly posted roller-skating videos.

“She was a sweet girl. She never bothered nobody. She never bothered nobody. She was a friend to everybody,” said her mother, Kimberly Couch, according to The Daily Beast

Couch’s adoptive mother, Deanna Thurman, noted in a GoFundMe, “She stole my heart from day one. She has always been such a sweet, happy, and talented child. Always smiling and dancing around the house at the tender age of two. She was extremely active and vibrant with a love and passion for all things skating and dancing.”

There is no clear motive for Couch’s killing.
