    Missy Bevers was murdered this morning in Dallas around 4 am as she was preparing for her Gladiator's group.

    http://www.nydailynews.com/news/crime/fitness-instructor-murdered-texas-church-article-1.2606128

    "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."

    This is my old church home. It's just right down the road from me. It's very sad, I do not believe she was a member I believe she was just a trainer who has been offering classes at the church. So sad.

    From same ^ link, http://www.nydailynews.com/news/crim...icle-1.2606128

    " “We are exploring all possibilities," Smith said at an afternoon news conference. "It’s just an odd, random situation that they would happen to come into a building that’s being burglarized on a Monday morning. But all scenarios are on the table right now.” "

    "Bevers' husband was out of town Monday morning and traveled home after hearing what happened, according to the police department.
    "

    Sad, sad, sad. RIP Ms Bevers. Thoughts & prayers for your family & friends.

    This is local to me. LOTS of speculation in FB comments that the suspect in combat gear looks like a woman in the video. I can see it. I'm going with the theory that she was probably targeted. :-( Just unlikely someone would rob a church at am dressed like that.

    Interesting you commented on the thought it is a woman. That thought crossed my mind as I watched the video.

    Especially at 4am, when the video shows the suspect on tape! Nobody would be there except a church mouse....unless you knew about the training class.

    I agree now that I've watched the video a few times.....it does look like it could be a woman.

    I agree.

    I watched the video before reading the thread, and I thought the person in the outfit looked barrel-chested. It didn't occur to me it could be a female, but now that I look again, I think that is a very strong possibility....and would explain why a full get-up like that was used. If female, she thought people would assume male.

    JMO.

    How hard is it to get an outfit like that? Can anyone tell if it's real or a costume-store version?

    It's not that hard. You can buy the jackets you just have to provide the correct credentials if you want a patch for Dallas or Midlothian but they will sell the jacket without the patch.

    That person is short compared to the door. If the door is 80 - 84 inches tall, that person looks a little over 5 feet. I think it's a woman. Missy posted on Facebook the night before, April 17 at 7:55 pm, the time and place of the workout. Missy stated she had to get up at 3:30 am to prepare for the 5 am workout. She has 1861 friends on Facebook, but it's public so anyone could see the workout time. The killer roamed the church for a half hour before Missy showed up. Pretty clear Missy was targeted.

    Did this one have a patch? I can't access the video now and can only see the stills. I'm not seeing a patch?

    I think it's a female suspect with a borrowed or stolen SWAT outfit. The boots look particularly awkward as she walks. No question that TB was targeted. The "who" and "why" will likely be predictable from a statistical perspective.

    Is there a Dallas store where a person can just walk in and buy this stuff with cash? There are sellers online, including eBay, which offer jackets and vests emblazoned with "POLICE" but that would leave a credit card or Paypal record.

    This is so bizarre. If the killer went out shopping for this gear and has ties to Missy, then pre-meditation is obvious. Since Texas has the death penalty, you'd think if someone hated Missy that much, they'd make it look like a crime of passion.

    Hmmm.
    She now has 1860 friends.
    I'd start with the person who unfriended her.
