    TX - Terri 'Missy' Bevers,45, murdered in church/person in SWAT gear,18 April 2016 #2



    "A fitness trainer and mother of three was murdered in a Dallas-area church Monday morning by a man wearing SWAT gear, police said."

    "Boot camp-style exercise class participants who showed up at the Creekside Church of Christ in Midlothian, Tex., around 5 a.m. found their instructor Terri “Missy” Bevers, 45, dead, according to the Midlothian Police Department."

    "Fitness trainer Terri (Missy) Bevers, 45, was killed early Monday just before her boot-camp style class, police said. Participants in the Camp Gladiator class found her dead when they arrived to a Midlothian, Tex., church for the workout."

    "Police Chief Carl Smith said a man wearing what looked like a tactical helmet, gloves and a heavy vest with "POLICE" written on it could be seen in security camera footage from the E. U.S. Highway 287 church just before Bevers arrived. The department released the 4 a.m. footage Monday afternoon, though Smith said no cameras captured the attack."

    In response to the last thread on what the significance of the K9 was, it was a highly specialized firearm/explosive accelerant K9 who would not be used for arson (E.G. sniffing for gasoline) or as a bloodhound to find people's scent:

    Perhaps they have <i>poses</i> using that stance, but I really don't think that they walk that way.
    I teach dancing and believe me, some dancers do walk with their turnout. Some bodybuilders also walk with turnout.

    But, having said that, the perp's body shape looks to be someone in their 30s-40s imo.

    Blue Eyes, I was just going my gut feeling about the times robberies usually happen, but here is some info:

    Former NYPD Detective Wallace Zeins believes the time stamp on the surveillance video, almost 4 a.m., tells him there is more to the story.
    “Usually burglars hit in the middle of the night. Maybe from 11 at night until about 3 in the morning. They don’t stay there while the sun is just coming up; there's more to the picture in this investigation,” he said.

    Lost my last post and my balance being whisked over to here. Heartbreaking, gut wrenching to hear how devastated Missy's daughters were to hear of their mother's death. Wonder if the killer watched that interview. Killer should feel such remorse and shame, but might be so twisted they feel glee.

    *sigh* yet another case I've come in on after a thousand posts.

    Was it determined that the SWAT vest was a real SWAT vest? Something about this is nagging at me and I can't put my finger on it.
    Just my opinion... and trust me, I do have one.

    I'm only guessing but I think the dog was brought in to rule out there being any explosives planted in the building for future use. I am sure that members of the church are quite shaken and perhaps this was a way to "clear" the building's safety. After all, this "culprit" as my teens call him/her was wearing a POLICE get-up. Who knows what kind of perp this actually is?

    In response to Jackeee on first thread, the squirrel was put in the photo by the church. It was a promo for VBS or something. Sorry I didn't say so before.

    I'm fairly sure in the last thread someone quoted LE who said it was not real SWAT gear, just a mishmash of stuff made to look like it.

    Also as for COD, just because someone has gunshot wounds doesn't mean that was COD. You could shoot someone after they were already dead to make it look like that's how they died, if you wanted to. Not that I'm saying that's what happened but it could be that multiple weapons were used.

    I shared in a previous post that I walk like that somewhat. My feet turn out like that due to the fact that I have one hip that is slightly higher than the other hip. I also have chronic back pain as a result. I would not be able to balance myself well if I did not "kick a leg out" as my husband calls it.

    I think cowboys walk like that, too.

    I read that it was just a regular vest, with the word POLICE across the front. I also recall reading that Missy's husband said it was not actual LE SWAT gear.

    Just was reading about the SWAT video games that are really popular. just saying...

    In regards to what the family first heard, about a car wreck, is it possible someone first thought she had been hit by a car? Then through the telephone game that turned into a car wreck? And I don't think the aunt did anything in malice, and there is no easy way to tell children, who are old enough to pick up on something is wrong, that their mother had been murdered. I actually think by keeping it from them it would be more hurtful than just being honest in an already terrible, unimaginable situation. No one knows how to act when someone in their family is murdered, and I for one dont think it's anyone's place to judge their actions carried out in unimaginable grief. unless the aunt ends up being the perp, I imagine all her actions, and anyone else close to the girls were simply doing what they thought was right.

    ETA: nvm went back to old thread and realized she was found inside the church, for some reason I thought it was under the porte cochere.

    In the last thread people said the family attended the Cowboy church.

    I don't think LE has said that, at least not publically. Mr. Bevers said that in an interview and seemed to be giving his own opinion.

    IMO the interview is in very bad taste. There is absolutely no reason to share those very personal moments.. Those details, about the children's reaction should have been kept private.
