"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.

Everyone, please read this
post before you post anything else


Dear Websleuths members,

Again we find ourselves trying to moderate based on rules set up for other cases.

Once in a while, our rules do not fit with certain cases and therefore changes need to be made.

We will try and make this as easy as possible.

If you have a question send me a private message, please. Do not post the question on the forum.

For our new members: Welcome to websleuths!

Websleuths is different than any other forum on the internet. If you are used to forums like topix then you are going to find out quickly websleuths is not topix. We don’t allow rumors. We don’t allow comments from facebook or comments from other forums. We work hard to make sure everyone stays on topic. We allow and encourage appropriate sleuthing. Most of all we want you to become involved and enjoy your experience at websleuths. You can review our rules right here: http://www.websleuths.com/forums/forumdisplay.php?159-the-rules

*Please no personal chatter back and forth. Welcoming someone back or making jokes at other member’s expense is not going to be allowed. The case is about Missy Bevers. Please do not make the thread about you.

*If Missy’s husband posts pictures and posts on his personal public facebook page it can be discussed and you can speculate.

*if you do speculate please do not make comments on their personal appearance. That’s just rude. You can speculate on their behavior but if you want to post something unkind about their looks please don’t.

*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.

* Here is a hypothetical for you: Say you were face to face with the person you are getting ready to post about. This person also knows your real name. Would you say what you are getting ready to post to this person’s face? Please think before you post.

*We have an unfair advantage. We are anonymous. Your words are very powerful and they will be on the internet forever. You will own those words when the truth is found out about Missy's murder.

To review:

*yes you can speculate as long as it is logical and done in a mature manner.

*yes you can discuss the pictures Missy's husband posted on his personal and public Facebook page. You cannot discuss any comments unless they are from Missy's husband personally.

*yes you can discuss all pictures/ videos 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

i am completely responsible for any confusion that has gone on in this thread. Sparky is doing a great job and she was doing what i taught her to do. I want to publicly thank sparky for her hard work and dedication.

Ok newbies and old time Websleuths members, go forth and discuss!

Sincerely,
Tricia Griffith

ps. Please forgive spelling and grammatical errors. I am half asleep as i write.

Hey Folks,

Let's all remember this thread is for Missy.

WS is victim friendly and this includes the family.

All children are off limits.

Bashing the Bevers family and extended family is off limits.

Discussing BB's employment off limits.

Sleuthing The Bevers/Tucker (BB's mother and siblings) Family and Missy's Side of the family off limits.

You may discuss what they've said in the media, but to sleuth them and bring it here is against TOS.

No Rumors from FB, or FB Groups. NO links to unauthorized FB or Twitter accounts.

No pictures from unauthorized FB pages, groups or Twitter accounts.

Be nice to your fellow sleuther. Don't be rude or snarky. If you see a post you don't agree with, roll and scroll. If you see a post which is against WS TOS hit the alert button.

We have lots of new members, if they need help, please try and help them or direct them. There's no need to tell them it's already been discussed.

There has been NO POI/Suspect named Until LE names someone or ones.....there is not one.

Thank you!

This is his own comment on his own post on FB btw.

Let's assume the LE did call him back. Can we also assume that they wouldn't tell him whether they took his trash or not because it's an active investigation? Or can we assume that they lied to him and said that they didn't when they really did?

I have a harder time assuming that LE would tell him that they took his trash because either he or his wife are under investigation for the murder of Missy Bevers.

Where are Missy's family members? I have not seen or heard anything about them. Just BB's family speaking out. Does anyone know where they are? They must be devastated.
 
So I'm confused by the trash discussion. Do we know from LE that LE went through the trash from AT/CT house? Or do we simply know that someone pawed through it, and jump to the conclusion it must have been LE? Because if we don't have it as confirmed-by-LE fact, I can certainly theorize other possibilities besides the idea that they felt a need to go through that trash, and I'm sure many others can too.
 
This is not directed at any one poster, as many of us have said as much:

"Missy's family have stated, said, agreed, etc".

The truth is, Missy's devastated, broken family have kept silent. BB's family, equally broken and upset, have been in the media, in front of cameras, did interviews, wrote (or still in the process of writing) open letters to SwatPerp and one of BB's family members stated, an obit-style public address: "I always wanted to be a detective". BB's family. Not Missy's. If we're going to nit-pick, let's do so across the board. I must add, I found their statements peppered with "Missy was not perfect" curious.

Not condemning BB's family. They're grieving and are upset, however, I also saw zero, but zero closeness with Missy from BB's family on FB. MIL, sure. I did not see any photographs and typical communication, etc. I ask: was there perhaps internal strained-family relations?

While Joe-Public definitely seems to have their man (or their woman), I am convinced LE's net has been cast much further out. For good cause. And perhaps that's why no arrest or confirmed suspect has been released. All may not be as it seems. Just saying.

;)

Ahhh. Sanity. Thank you :)

Apparently there's a Facebook post, based on his neighbors saying they saw some unidentified people taking the trash bags away. I have no idea if it even happened.

BTW I never said anything was CONFIRMED, you assumed that :). I quoted your response to someone else to let you know it's still on his FB and gave you the date so you can view it for yourself. Then, when you said you don't do FB, I told you what he said and what I assumed it meant and I thought I made it clear that was my opinion but apparently it wasn't clear. Sorry about that.

Indeed. My thoughts exactly. Truth: been hugely one-sided thus far. Jumped to defense too early? having said that, I do not believe BB is the psychopath monster-church-murderer, though.

My heart bleeds for them and most especially for Missy's beautiful daughters.

Sorry. When you said "it" was on his Facebook I thought that you where talking about "confirmation." Sometimes a single sentence response doesn't convey what you think it does.

Respectfully brought over from thread 15 .. It has been stated from early on that MB was Targeted. Here is one link
Sources: Police believe slain Midlothian mom was targeted http://www.wfaa.com/news/crime/sources-police-believe-slain-midlothian-mom-was-targeted/154677542
 
Maybe what everybody is seeing is not "overkill /crime of passion" but rather a necessary bludgeoning on the part of the perp to inflict such fatal wounds in order to ensure death assuming no gun was involved because bullistics can trace it. Maybe this person just wanted her gone. This could include such possible perps as a married guy she had affair with who wants her shut up, or someone dealing drugs or cheating that she found out about and wants her shut up, or someone who wants insurance money and wants her gone, or a pro or amateur hit, etc. It might not even be a "crime of passion or rage" like it looks on the surface.

If if it is a true rage killing then it might be scored person, or someone m or f who she deeply insulted.

LE would never confirm that they went thru someone's trash until it is presented as evidence in court.

Pretty much everything LE has done so far has been behind the scenes. All they've told us is that they've conducted dozens of interviews (we don't know with whom), that they got a SW and collected data from the targets therein, that NYPD helped analyze cell tower data, and Tarrant County helped with video analysis and re-construction.

Absolutely everything else is unconfirmed. But that's what makes it interesting!
 
I can't believe this hasn't been solved yet!!! I don't know what evidence they do or don't have. I just want someone held accountable for killing Missy, and at this point, that person is still walking free. I know LE wants an arrest and conviction as well. Just wish we knew something new....
 
Do we agree (thus far) that only BB's family, and not Missy's family have been in media and given us the valuable clues? Granted, Missy's In-Laws are family, however I am sure you know what I mean. My heart beats SO heavily for Missy'sfamily and especially her daughters. I grieve for the loss in BB's family, too. All b/c of a psycho Church-Murder. Imean hello? Church? Whomsoever plotted this, has zero regard for a revered place of love,unity and worship, let alone God.

If that person has been to church since, I scream hypocrite.
