missy bevers

Police in a small Texas town are combing fitness instructor Terri "Missy" Bevers's social media accounts for clues into who killed her inside a church.

The 45-year-old mother-of-three was murdered early Monday morning inside the Creekside Church of Christ in Midlothian, near Dallas, where she was scheduled to teach a fitness class.

Bevers died of blunt force trauma to the head.

Police hope to find clues to the identity of her killer among her social media postings.

The suspect wore SWAT tactical gear, including a black vest with the word "POLICE" on it, and carried a tool used by police to break glass.

The suspect broke into the church around 4 a.m., before Missy Bevers arrived. But police don't believe the motive was burglary since nothing was taken from the church. Bevers' purse, iPad and other valuables were still in her car.

Bevers' students found her body, surrounded by glass, in a room in the church at 5:00 a.m. Monday. Bevers had arrived an hour earlier to set up equipment for her Camp Gladiator fitness class. She moved the class to the church because of inclement weather in Midlothian.

“If it’s raining we’re still training,” she posted on Facebook on Sunday.

Police initially described the killer as a man wearing police tactical clothing and gear. But after reviewing surveillance video, police now say the killer might be a female.

Authorities indicated the "man's" halting gait and appearance looked more like a female.

"We are backing off our statement that the suspect on video was a man," Midlothian Assistant Police Chief Kevin Johnson told KXAS-TV. "I know we said 'he' over and over again yesterday, and that was a mistake. There's a lot of speculation based on the gait and appearance that this person may be a woman. It's a legitimate question right now. We no longer will say the suspect is a man. That does not mean I'm saying this suspect is a woman. It's just that at this point we can’t rule it out. We don't know yet."

The suspect is seen on surveillance footage meandering around the hallways of the church, opening and closing doors as if looking for something or someone.

“The department’s desire is for the public to analyze the video to see if the walk and stature or the suspect is recognizable,” Assistant Chief Kevin Johnson said on Tuesday.

Brandon Bevers, the victim's husband, was conveniently on a fishing trip in Mississippi when his wife was killed.

Brandon's mother said he was "concerned" about Missy teaching a class at such odd hours.

“She might have been a little too naive for her own good, but she was a trusting soul. I guess she just thought everyone was good," Marsha Tucker told KTVT-TV.

Brandon and Missy were married for 20 years and have three daughters - ages 8, 13 and 15.

    So was there anything stolen? Was this a break in that got interrupted or do they think this person was there specifically to murder this woman?

  • <—Doesn'tTalkToStrangers

    SO since Monday they haven't found any clues and they want to broadcast that they're still looking.

    Gone on somewhere, and report back when you find something! They reporting that they ain't got nothing to report?!?!?!?!

    hi?

  • Nancy Drew on my ibrowse today

    okay no disrespect to the victim, but the lack of information provided, makes me speculate on how this may have gone down:
    -is this suspect a pregnant woman who was either pregnant by the victim's husband or a pregnant woman whose husband was involved with the victim?
    -is it someone who dropped out of her class because they refused to give up twinkies but still expected to see a more dramatic weight loss?
    -is it Chaz Bono?

  • Nancy Drew on my ibrowse today

    oh gosh....

  • melissaisasnob

    All of this, "In your face we were friends all along shyt" is tiresome. I lost respect for Amber Rose behind it and same here with Blac Chyna. What it is saying is, they suck up to the Kartrashidans.

  • Readytochokemothernatureonout

    Lol

  • Readytochokemothernatureonout

    I'm not surprised about them as nothing is real about them. I wish it wasn't really about Prince.

  • Readytochokemothernatureonout

    Nothing about them is real. Attention slores is what they are.

  • https://www.etsy.com/shop/AMarieNaturals Lovezoe

    It's been a day. I have had enough of the Katrashhians and the coons who perform for them.

  • http://www.sandrarose.com Django the God

    What's up?

    I know you listening to "Batdance" right now.

  • http://Copblock.org aDingoDrankMyBabies

    Nah. Been under a lot of stress. Very sad, but have yet to put on the best of Prince?

  • http://www.sandrarose.com Django the God

    You will feel better after.

    I was on Vicodin and listening to music the other day and nodded off happily like a fiend.

  • http://Copblock.org aDingoDrankMyBabies

    Oh how I wish I had some Vicodin? It would make the battle against these demons much easier. Oh well? Glad you're in good spirit??

  • Doug

    Husband did it.

    Keep your head up.

  • Tee Tee

    THIS??

  • Pebbles

    What kind of church is that the Debil felt comfortable enough to walk in & do it?

    Most times the victim is always harmed by someone they know or have been in contact with.

    I watch this one crime on every show once the husband wanted his wife dead because she was pregnant again & she wouldn't divorce him. The only reason the killer didn't kill her is because he had a code he didnt kill women ( pregnant or not) & children) & he sat the intended victim down & explained to her that her husband wanted her dead. At the trial all the tea was spilling from the hit man to the mistresses who didn't know she was one. The wife waas till in denial.

    Look at the female doctor who dated the guy probably didn't even know her killer, but in the killer mind she was viewed as competition & had to go.

    The thing is you never know what will make a person snapp & go from happy wife , husband to wanting to plot your murder.

    Cop uniforms normally have the city Name, logo & the word police department .. This person could have went to a costume store & purchased everything

  • kim

    Why does it say conveniently on a fishing trip?

  • eljjai

    You'll find out this was all over some dack.

  • ocdetf

    You can bet that the husband is being looked at very closely. Very, very closely.

  • ocdetf

    Read between the lines.

  • BRSM

    Darth Sapperideous @seeinginfrared found this frame on the surveillance camera and was able to hone in on the killers eyes. Looks female to me. What would motivate a woman to kill another woman?Victim killed blunt force trauma = rage.

  • BRSM

    Exactly.

  • RLark

    No, kim has a point. How can they print their "opinion" that the husband was "conveniently" out of town? It's like the writer is finding him guilty without a trial, or an investigation for that matter.

  • bertha yellowfinch

    The suspect looks like a woman to me. Are drugs in this picture?

  • bertha yellowfinch

    Do they know anyone named "Andrea".
