"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 &#8220;Missy&#8221; 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."

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&#8217;t allow rumors. We don&#8217;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&#8217;s expense is not going to be allowed. The case is about Missy Bevers. Please do not make the thread about you.

* YOU CAN SPECULATE ABOUT PEOPLE IN THE SEARCH WARRANTS AS LONG AS YOU USE THEIR INITIALS ONLY. This overrides an earlier decision I made. My apologies for the confusion. It is 100 percent my fault.

*if you do speculate please do not make comments on their personal appearance. That&#8217;s just rude. You can speculate on their behavior but if you want to post something unkind about their looks please don&#8217;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&#8217;t speculate that the dry cleaning people killed Missy. The police have confirmed they believe Missy was targeted. That&#8217;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&#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.

To review:

*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&#8217;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.

This is the only "new" article I found, but there's not really anything new in it.

&#8220;The national exposure this week generated approximately 50- plus or -minus new tips. All are similar to tips received locally during early stages of the investigation,&#8221; Johnson said.

The police have received between 1,100 and 1,200 leads at this point, he said.

&#8220;We do still have several leads that we are working, some are new,&#8221; Johnson said. &#8220;I prefer not to disclose those or characterize them in any specific way.&#8221;

Investigators are still waiting on DNA testing of a woman's shirt Bevers' father-in-law, Randy Bevers, dropped off at a Midlothian drycleaners in the week following her death. The white button-down shirt appeared to have bloodstains on it.

&#8220;We have not received test result on the bloody shirt,&#8221; Johnson said. &#8220;We have been informed by the lab that testing will begin in early June.&#8221;

Does anyone know how long this case must be open before it is officially declared a cold case? As usual, I'm watching ID channel today & many of the cases featured are cold cases. In nearly all instances, LE knew who was guilty but couldn't obtain hard evidence enough to warrant an arrest. I sure hope that is not the case in this instance.

No updates. So we are left to speculate and ponder till we hear more.

As long as they have leads to follow, it isn't a cold case.

Thank you, mods, for giving us an enforced break! Much needed. Has anyone come up with any NEW thoughts or theories while we've had time to think outside the box?

I'm still working on screen captures from the surveillance video...arghhh...it's driving me bananas. LOL

here is another pic of the eyes - it's not real clear of course. The killer's eyes are squinted. This is when the killer had tried to pry the 2nd door and was walking away from it at about 1:06 to 1:07.

To be honest I've seen 4 or 5 different versions of 'The Eyes' and none of them look exactly the same. Seems to me there must be a significant amount of distortion when zooming so far in as I've so far managed to match one set of eyes or another to suit whoever my current POI is!

I'm gonna stop with The Eyes until/unless LE release a super hyped up enhanced version. Really quite frustrating that they haven't, given they have the technology, but perhaps it boils down to them not needing any more info from the public.

So they won't start testing the shirt until June?... my goodness you would have thought they would have already started testing. :(

Weird. If the alibi as to whereabouts is confirmed, there is no need to bother testing the shirt.....except on the off-chance that the bloody womens XL top did not belong to either RB or VB. JMO ETA the little dog died after Missy did.

I definitively remember him being emphatic in his interview there were two shirts there. I will have to go back and watch, but there has been nothing about the other shirt. Maybe it was his way of saying "we take all kinds of things there" om not trying to be accusatory, but it is odd to take a shirt with your dead dogs blood on it to a cleaner. I do dog rescue, and that is the last thing I would have in my closet.. thats just me tho. Maybe it was super duper special shirt.
