She appeared to be a mother and wife living in a quiet community, but Kathleen West had a secret life hidden away online.

As previously reported by Dearly, the 42-year-old mom’s Twitter account was used to sell clothing, interspersed with racy poses advertising a sexually explicit subscription website featuring images of herself.

The life West kept private was exposed when the Alabama woman’s body was found in her own yard.

Inside Edition reports a neighbor’s daughter found West’s body dressed in only a sports bra with blood dripping from her head.

West was seen in surveillance video on Jan. 12 at 9 p.m. happily shopping at a liquor store with man who appeared to be her husband.

Hours later, her body was found alongside a cell phone and a bottle of absinthe.

Liquor store employee, Stacey Oglesby, told Inside Edition:

“They came in, it looked like they were on their date night. They bought a bottle of Jameson and a bottle of Lucid absinthe and made their purchase and went on their way. Everything was normal.”

Police are keeping mum on the details of the investigation, treating it as a homicide.

Inside Edition reports West’s husband has asked for privacy while the family mourns her death.

A service was held for her on Tuesday.
