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

"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.

Everyone, please read the rules as set by Tricia:
* YOU CAN SPECULATE ABOUT PEOPLE IN THE SEARCH WARRANTS AS LONG AS YOU USE THEIR INITIALS ONLY. This overrides an earlier decision I made.
*Speculation is allowed if it involves someone who has been named in the mainstream media and you can logically put this person at the scene of the crime or can suggest they were somehow involved. Speculation has to be based on some semblance of fact. In other words, you can’t speculate that the dry cleaning people killed Missy. The police have confirmed they believe Missy was targeted. That’s a good place to start.
*Speculation does not mean you can sleuth any of these people. Their lives have been turned upside down and the last thing they want to see is something personal and embarrassing posted on websleuths for the world to see. No sleuthing aka no digging into their backgrounds and posting what you find.
*yes you can speculate as long as it is logical and done in a mature manner.
*Missy's husband's Facebook page is now private therefore it is off limits. All Facebook pages that are now private are off limits
*yes you can discuss all pictures/ videos (No Minors) as long as you can source them to a legitimate source . Do not post or discuss the twitter picture that showed the face blown up. This looks like some sort of photo-shopped picture and it can’t be sourced.

Do we know if the helmet SP is wearing is a motorcycle helmet, if so I would say he rode a motorcycle there or ATV, really no other reason to wear it, face was already covered and it would be bulky and restricting, maybe even a scooter as they are much quieter.

Just re-watched the MPD video that runs 2:27.
1) I noticed at :30 and again at 1:07 that the SP is wearing a white shirt-one with shirt tails it appears.
2) it appears to me that either the perp takes the hammer out of the room that gets opened just before :30 OR that's when the shirt gets pulled out by the SP taking the hammer out of a pocket.
3) in the last moments of the video we see the SP breaking a window to enter a room. There is a door open further down the hallway but I can't tell what hallway this is. Can anybody help with that?

I'm a few threads behind in catching up but wanted to throw out a few things to ponder.
If the campers didn't find MB or didn't realize what tey were seeing was her (not sure which is fact), that does indicate the doors may have still been in the locked position with campers looking in and seeing her. IMO it sounds and looks as if campers see MBs truck but MB never arrives at 5 and is nowhere to be found so they head inside to look for her, doors are locked so they look in and see "something" until one of them realize it's MB. How freightening.
If this were the case (MOO not fact), that indicates MB went to main front entrance, down SW hallway to unlock the SW corner entrance (heading direction SP was), and likely hit or shot and ambushed BEFORE being able to unlock those doors. I feel she was literally found "in the corner" there just inside the doors, the corner behind both camera views and before that outside cameras view.
But can't understand where SP snuck out to avoiding cameras unless there is a purpose in LEs statement of not being seen again or the camera pointing to the awning SW entrance where MBs truck likely was was not working.
That is a typical setup in commercial property with multiple doors to only have main entrance keys (my experience with commercial cleaning of about 10 yrs).Learn from yesterday, live for today, hope for tomorrow.

Last night, arkansasmimi posted this still shot from the 2:26 MPD video fromat mark 1:48. The DD doors down the hallway are open and I believe this is the point where SP begins walking toward this camera veering to the right to the auditorium doors - all eyes focused on SP. I never noticed that at the lower right, it looks like one of the porte cochere interior doors is propped open. This may already have been discussed at length.All of my posts are to be perceived as IMO,JMO, or MOO.

BBM . . .Police said they saw no interaction between Bevers and the suspect on camera. They say they may have captured the suspect's car on video but they do not have enough information to reveal any more details to the public.
'There’s one surveillance camera where you can see the car in the far corner of the frame, parked in the distance. You can't make out a plate, and we're not even comfortable releasing anything about a possible make or model,' Johnson said.
Aside from that with the rain, it would have been very unsafe to be on a motorcycle.

CS Church Hallways
Here is a plan of the church hallways. I have placed the hallway seen in the very end of the video to the East side of the building. IMO that's the only side that fits the lack of windows/ doors across the sanctuary, where you see the perp exiting door number 12. Corrections and additions welcome, as always.
If the key does not fit, it's the wrong key.

This question is for arkansasmimi
In your (awesome !) floorplan I see a double door on the SE corner of the church. Is this confirmed or did you change it since this version ( May 5)?
I am asking, since this would be the location the perp is hammering glass (?) as seen in the video. Would he have hammered that double door??

Can anyone see in the upper glass of the propped open interior vestibule door (at mark 1:48) - what is that, a reflection?All of my posts are to be perceived as IMO,JMO, or MOO.
