"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
owner/Websleuths.com
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. Your posts will be deleted.

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.

Don't bash LE, our Military or our Vets.

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!

EVERYONE NEEDS TO STOP AND READ THIS CAREFULLY


We only discuss information that is given to us either through mainstream media, the police, or people who are considered insiders.
Even then we do our best to discuss by using initials only.

When a murder is committed most often the ripples of the crime go far and wide. Meaning, the murder affects so many people connected to the victim and the perp.

We do our best to allow a lively discussion within reason.
Let me remind you what I wrote a few days ago:

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&#8217;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.

Before you start posting about anyone you need to be sure what you post is something you will stand behind when the truth finally comes out.

As far as my guest on my radio show or any guest I interview you have to right to believe or not to believe what the person is saying. End of story.

We have heard from two different media sources that the police are looking closely at a woman and that an arrest is coming soon.

Do you believe it or not? Up to you.

For members who get upset that we allow discussions about persons who may or may not be guilty please keep in mind the very tight rules we have at Websleuths. Tighter than any other forum, moderated or not, that I know of on the Internet.

There is a reason their names have been brought up. It's because the police or mainstream media brought the names to our attention. That doesn't mean every single name we can sleuth their whole life and put it on the Internet. Not at all.

What if the name brought up is someone who's only connection is they found the body? The last thing you want to do is post their life story on the Internet.

Then again, what if a name brought up can be connected to the victim? We need to allow discussions that include theories and speculation within reason.

Let me stress again, the rules are mostly fluid. We can change them depending on what is best for the situation. What works for one discussion does not work for others.

Please. be respectful of other people's opinions.

Don't hesitate to alert on a post you feel violates our rules.

Finally, if you do speculate that someone is a killer you do have to be ready to take responsibility for your post. Whether you are right or wrong. If you are wrong you can assume the person you posted about knows what you said about them. Your words about them will stay on the Internet forever. Even though we do use initials you words are very powerful. Powerful enough people.

Please be careful when you post.

Tricia

This is my first post here. I only started following this board last week, as a result of following this case. God bless you Missy and family. So sorry to hear about all this. What I am thinking is, I was wondering yesterday about the pants. Does anyone else think the short pants worn by the perp look like hockey pants? I have not seen that mentioned. I live up north in Michigan and we are a hockey family, and was struck with that thought. If you are unfamiliar with them, hockey pants are knee length, padded and baggy. Black is overwhelmingly the most common color. Just a thought. The video is not good quality.

A pro hit. Rents a car, knows the outside church cams don't work, a disguise that makes height fluccuate, kills time, kills victim, burner phone, escape with minutes to spare

Or.....luckiest killer ever.

Looking at the pic of the car at the SWFA, I see a wall or a brick structure that isn't much taller than the car that the car is facing in the pic. Trying to find that wall on google maps to get an idea where the car parked in the SWFA complex, but I don't see anything that matches up.

Welcome to WS! I actually mentioned hockey pants last week! My son plays ice hockey and I thought the same thing!

Cant fuss about not getting an update lol then fuss at the update.

Respectfully, yes we can. It is healthy and wise to question institutions and authority. If the American people had never done that, we would still be under British rule today.

So we have the right and responsibility to demand updates from those who exist to serve and protect us, especially when our taxes pay for their existence. And when that update finally comes and does not indicate much progress, we have the right to question why.

Hockey pants could serve multiple purposes for a criminal. Baggy and padded, so they would provide protection in a fight or struggle. Also, would protect against climbing through a broken window where there may be shards of glass. Also, they'd be easy to wear over compression pants, and then pull off later. Just a thought.

Very disheartening... I was hoping more from LE's presser as i think so many others did too. I don't know what to think anymore, everything should still be possible but now I atleast have this nauseating feeling that if this isnt a targeted hit, which still is probable considering everything.. it could be a thrill kill. Recently there has been killings in Europe where motive just does not exist even to most grisly murders. Or the motive is "I wanted to know how it feels to kill". Motives that no reasonable people understand. Locals, be safe, take care of each other and let's not lose hope. In my country 9 out of 10 murders get solved and I have faith in the best LE agencies in USA too. Let's keep hoping/praying justice for sweet Missy.

Friendly reminder to please add links and articles to the Media Thread for this case. The link is in Sparky's first post above. I have added a few links from this morning, but I expect there will be more articles throughout the day. If anyone finds a link to the full presser, please also add it to the Media Thread. TIA!

I am a hockey player. I highly doubt this person is wearing hockey pants in the video I've seen. They don't look nearly padded/baggy enough, and their walk is not affected enough, in my opinion.

I will never get caught up! Like to keep it fact based in my opinions and theories... Some things lately are more confusing than it really should be. Tunnel vision probably caused some to have a wreck after that MPD Update

Respectfully, how do we know that LEO is not considering CT a friend? I am sincere not being snarky.

No "snarkiness" taken. LOL! That's quite possible. However, I think the words "POI" and "suspect" need to be carefully considered with the way he explained one can turn into the other. He may have said they aren't "suspects"; but he didn't say they weren't "POI's" either. The Chief may also have gathered that the public has determined who is a "friend", "family", "co-worker" and who isn't quite accurately. He made it pretty clear that BB and RB's alibis have checked out. Again....lots of reading between the lines I feel which will make us all a tad bit crazier. LOL :thinking:

If LE didn't give the right location, it wouldn't be the first time I've followed a case where camera footage came from a different location than where LE said it came from. If this isn't where it came from, LE may be sending a message to the perp.
