    "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."

    LE Update/Presser on April 22, 2016


    Questions have swirled around the suspect's identity, but Kristi Stout does not believe her sister-in-law died because she was in the wrong place at the wrong time.

    'A lot of us, including myself, think she was targeted,' Stout told NBC DFW.

    So I got screenshots from 4 different camera angles from the church video. I don't think we can rely too much on the camera to decipher body type/shape. The different types of cameras/angles make such a difference (if these are all the same person, which I believe to be true).

    Also the last camera angle shows the top of the helmet. I think it is a bicycle helmet - looks like there is a long narrow opening how the light is shining on it.

    Edit: After looking again, the helmet might still be rounded and the light is just shining on it weird.

    Idk. A female wouldn't know where the church tools were held in order to use some random weapon that may or may not be on the scene.

    Looking forward to lstiff's catch up notes tonight, I've missed about 20 hours and can't bring myself to read all 660 posts.

    I'll ask once and then endeavour to stay on track - has anything new happened in that time? At all?

    Are we sure susp got the tools from the church or did suspect take them out of his/her pants/jacket when we couldn't see behind the door? Would a church have tools in a hallway? I would think they would be in a shed.

    Is anyone else going absolutely crazy wanting an arrest? I am!

    With respect to my earlier post... just noticed that high-powered female Dallas divorce attorney KMc "de friended" MB recently because they were def FB friends after the murder. May not mean anything. Some people are just private people.
    Anyone from Midlothian know if MB contacted her on a professional level or how they were connected??

    Every church I've ever been in (quite a few) has a maintenance closet and in my experience the women are the ones usually setting stuff up for events and grabbing tools if needed.

    When you guys say "church tools," do you mean that SWATPERP got the hammer and crowbar, etc., from the church rather than brought them? I haven't been able to read every post in all these threads, sorry and thanks

    Figuring out FB-posting patterns, strategies and motivations seems misdirected, in my view anyway, from sleuthing, especially given the ubiquitous nature of social media. I know that's not true in every case, as LE uses online activity to piece together how suspects and victims communicate. But here, we have warrants about LE seeking information likely based on Missy's last activity, right? It doesn't mean anyone named is her killer.

    If the people named know that suddenly hundreds of strangers were going to be looking at their FB postings to see what their mindset is or was, I don't think anyone it is going to provide insights. Or maybe it's better to say I think it's a slippery slope to assume meaning in some of this. That's how I see it right now and as I'm reading. I realize others feel differently.

    One more screenshot where you can see the outline of the legs. Definitely look like an in-shape person's legs IMO at this angle. legs.png

    I believe perp brought tools but others believe perp got them from the church. Various opinions on the subject.

    Just a FYI for the newbies....

    This case will break wide open when you least expect it, just ask any of our seasoned members. LE has to dot all their I's and cross all their T's. So don't be disappointed there hasn't been an arrest yet. It will come.....just be patient.

    And I believe it was a mix of the two.

    Hi. I will try to use regular lingo. I agree with mr. dxter. I think its ''BYOHammer' for these murderers.

    Locals, I wonder if the locals are suspicious of ct or is that just a websleuth deal because of her coincidentally having an ankle that looked like it really got broken in one half back in 2014???
