Police in Louisiana arrested the boyfriend of Instagram influencer Beauty ‘Katera’ Couch, who officers discovered murdered near her burned out car in the Atlanta area, according to authorities.

The investigation began around 12:18 p.m. Thursday when Austell, Georgia, firefighters were called for a brush fire. When they arrived, they found a vehicle fully engulfed in flames. They put out the fire and the car was taken to a wrecker yard. Austell police went to the home where the vehicle was registered, and they learned the owner’s daughter, Couch, 22, had not been seen since Wednesday morning, Cobb County Police said in a press release. She was the person who most used the vehicle.

Austell police searched the area near where the fire took place and found Couch’s body near the wood line. Cobb County police Major Crimes Unit took over the investigation and suspected foul play, though authorities did not release a cause of deat.

Authorities identified Couch’s boyfriend, Eugene Louis-Jocques, as a suspect and got a warrant for his arrest on charges of murder, arson, and aggravated assault. U.S. Marshals on Friday learned Louis-Jocques, 21, of Naples, Florida, had ties to the St. Tammany Parish in Louisiana, which is north of New Orleans. Members of the St. Tammany Parish identified areas where Louis-Jocques could be hiding out, and they set up surveillance, a press release from the agency said.
