"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."

CERTAIN BEHAVIORS WILL NOT BE TOLERATED!!!Dear Websleuths Members,
We are going to apply common sense to the Missy Bever's discussion.
You all have really done some amazing sleuthing in the Bever's case. Thank you for putting forth the effort to bring us interesting and helpful posts.
From now on if a member disrupts the thread in any way they will be timed out or banned.
Disrupting the thread could be anything from hitting the alert button over and over on posts that do not violate our TOS, to trying to disrupt members who are discussing a scenario that you disagree with, to arguing over something so minor that it makes me want to rip my eyeballs out of my head in frustration.
Here is an example: No more arguments over "shards of glass" VS "broken glass" LE referenced.
No outright accusations against specific individuals but very general broad speculation or theorizing will be allowed.
The last word from LE was a long time ago and was that none of the persons listed in the search warrants that have been released are suspects "at this time"
We all know that is doublespeak for we are not willing to name any of them POI or suspect RIGHT NOW.
So a general speculation of "I still find the husband's statements odd, his demeanor off. Something is not right there" are fine. While statements like "BB did it, I mean come on, his wife was sleeping around and it's almost always the husband or boyfriend" are over the line.
"I think this was motivated by jealousy by someone Missy knew, someone who felt threatened by her, someone with low self-esteem" would be okay while "it was that one woman [whatever her initials are] married to one teacher [insert initials]" would be over the line.
This should be easy to understand.
We want a lively and interesting discussion, however, we will not allow the Bever's discussion to get out of hand.
Thanks to tlcya and beach for their contributions to this post and for their continued hard work in moderating the Bever's thread.

FB Warrant Probable Cause Affidavit
A member was kind enough to seek out and share this probable cause statement regarding the warrant for Missy's Facebook account. A person is named in full in that document as someone LE wanted more information about Missy's interactions with. That individual's initials are CW. We will continue to call that individual by their initials and not use their name in our discussions.
A reminder that this warrant was obtained in the early days of the investigation and since that time LE has stated "We didn't glean anything of significant evidentiary value from the execution of the warrants,"
If a member obtained it from the court record others can and will. Therefore we are making it available for our members but caution you to keep the above statement in mind when reading and making reference to it.
Odd silence falls over Missy Bevers murder probe as Person of Interest and Vehicle of Interest emerge
by Alan Duke, Reporter & 'Crime Stories With Nancy Grace' Co-host
January 10, 2017
"While sources tell us the silence is a intended to slow the crazies whose speculation and leads have distracted them, other reasons may also explain the strategy. There is a new person of interest and his law enforcement connections have made the case too sensitive to discuss publicly until it is resolved, one source says.
Although Crime Online has been told the name of this person of interest by a source, we will not publish it until police confirm it on the record.
A woman arriving for the Camp Gladiators work out found Bevers dead inside the church about 45 minutes later. Midlothian police received a 911 call reporting the discovery at 5:06 a.m.
Another video recently released online shows what police call a vehicle of interest, although investigators will not confirm if they have identified its driver or explained its unusual appearance near the church. It was recorded by a series of cameras posted around a gun store near the church about two hours before the murder. The Nissan Altima spends six minutes in the SWFA Outdoors parking lot, much of the time with its lights off. The church is on the opposite side of the divided highway, less than a half mile away.
