Louis-Jacques was arrested in St. Tammany Parish, Louisiana on Thursday, according to WWL-TV.
“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,” Sheriff Randy Smith said. “We were happy to help our counterparts in Georgia by locating this suspect.”
Couch, who also went by Beauty Katera, was found near a burned vehicle in Georgia last week. The Austell Fire Department responded to a call for a “brush fire” on Wednesday morning according to a statement by the Cobb County Police Department. Upon arrival, they located a car fully engulfed in flames.
Police searched the area the car was found and located a body that matched the description of Couch. Alex Hayes with the Austell Police Department said that if they didn’t go back to check for more clues after finding the vehicle, they may have never found her body. After the initial investigation, foul play was suspected.
Couch was a popular roller skating influencer on Instagram with more than 150,000 followers. Couch’s sister, Leila Brown, said she impacted a lot of people.
“I can’t imagine her being in this situation at all because she was so lovable, so caring, so fun, and so amazing,” Brown said. “She impacted a lot of people and she did nothing to anybody for anyone to want to do her like this.”
