Social media influencer Beauty Katera Couch, known online as BeautyK, has been found dead inside a burning car in Atlanta, Georgia, with police confirming they suspect "foul play". She was just 22.

"She never bothered anybody," Kimberly continued. "They took a part of my heart. I want them to pay for what they did to my baby." 

Cobb County Police Department Major Crimes Unit is now investigating, and they shared a post on Facebook calling for any witnesses or anything who has evidence. The fire department was first called to the scene on Wednesday August 23 where they found a "vehicle fully engulfed in flames". 

"The fire was extinguished, and the vehicle was towed to a wrecker yard," they shared before sharing that when Austell Police responded to the address where the vehicle was registered, it was discovered Beauty had not been seen since early on Tuesday August 22.

Other skate influencers also paid tribute, with Malik Thomas posting a video of Beauty skating "A tribute to a beautiful soul gone too soon. Skaters like @beautykatera were a reason why people rolled with a smile on their face. To know that we recently had a convo about figure 8 and this clip and knowing you’re gone is disheartening." he shared. 

"Love, Cherish, and Protect your fellow skaters. Please give this time for the parties involved to grieve and support to the family and @dipgirlzcrew."
