Police are hunting a police impersonator who killed a mother-of-three inside a Texas church.

Fitness instructor Missy Bevers was found murdered inside the Creekside Church of Christ where she was scheduled to teach a fitness class on Monday. The church is located in Midlothian, about 25 miles southwest of Dallas.

Police initially described the killer as a man wearing police tactical clothing, including black helmet, black gloves, and a black vest with the word "POLICE" on the front.

But on Tuesday, police announced after reviewing surveillance video, that the killer might be a female.

Police 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 suspect carried a tool used by police to break out glass.

Bevers was a personal trainer for the nationally known Camp Gladiator fitness training program. She had moved her class to the church on Monday because of the inclement weather in Midlothian.

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

Bevers's students found her body, surrounded by broken glass at around 5 a.m., about an hour after she began setting up for her class.

Police did not disclose the manner of death.

Sgt Nick Harp said he wasn't sure if the suspect was a cop or how she or he obtained police tactical gear.

“It’s tragic. It’s sad for the Bevers family and the community as a whole," said Harp. "It’s not something that we’re used to seeing. It certainly doesn’t sit well.”

A $10,000 reward is being offered for information leading to the arrest of the suspect.

    smh.. i hope this wasn't a love triangle type ish

  • Regina Kennedy

    Was this some type of revenge killing, or an upcoming episode of Snapped?

  • MsSincerity

    He or she does walk like a woman. Maybe that was the mistress of the trainer's husband or maybe that was the wife of the man that the trainer was having an affair with. She looks like the mistress type

  • Let Your Soul Glow

    I was reading this saying this is a Snapped episode from start to finish. Snapped or ID's Deadly Women.

  • Yoni

    Check that husband's phn, email, facebook, IG, backpage, credit cards and the likes. Hell check his drawers from last night.


    YES! I saw a snippet of the hubby on one of the morning news shows and instantly thought they'd be announcing he was a suspect in due time... How convenient that the wife managed to get murked while he was gone on a fishing trip.

  • Lovezoe

    Over a man. Watch.

  • Yoni

    How many insurance policies he got on her and how much were they worth. What about the pastor of the church, check his ass too. I would say the choir director, but we all know how Lavender'nem get down in the choir. Nevermind.

  • Milani

    From what I've seen, the person looked like a woman...

    Probably a scorned wife or mistress, because for her to be dressed up in police gear from head to toe, she had to had been ready and down for whatever...

  • Let Your Soul Glow

    I'll be watching!

  • MotherOfDragons, GetOffMyENuts

    If it is it makes a senseless killing that much worse. I am not ever risking my freedom or taking someone's life over a mufuggin dude. Not even my husband. Hell no.

  • Yoni

    Wonder if it's a "les be in" affair gone wrong. Somebody wanted kale chips and the other wanted potato chips. So there was the argument.


    Yep, and he's playing it cool, appearing to cooperate with police, all on the TV talmbout "this person in the footage is familiar to somebody, somewhere..."
    Hmmph, familiar to yo ass, cuz you put em up to it!(Guess I watch too much true crime tv, LOL)

  • Lovezoe

    Shole ain't. You can have him. And you don't have to kill me over him either. Again, you can have him. I want to be here for my babies.

  • Django the God

    Exercising was against her religion.

  • Yoni

    I'm telling you. They were lesbian's. He found out. Made a deal with the chick and she went and killed her in hopes of getting with the husband so they could live HUMPINGLY ever after.

  • MotherOfDragons, GetOffMyENuts

    Exactly. I don't want any man enough to even fight over him. BEEN learned that a man who is worth your time doesn't even put you in that position. I'm good.

  • MotherOfDragons, GetOffMyENuts

    Wtf is going on with people in Texas?

  • Lovezoe

    The heat.

  • Hugga Bunch

    Why can't people just go back to whooping a tricks a**? That way, at least you'll just get jail time if the police catch you. This here happened in Texas, ya'll already know what's about to happen.

  • Milani

    Bevers’s students found her body, surrounded by broken glass at around 5 a.m., about an hour after she began setting up for her class.
    So the lady was there at 4am setting up shop for her class. Whoever this person is that killed her KNEW she was going to be there, because who in their right mind is up at 4am dressed to kill (literally) in police gear at a church???

  • Wuts got Petty Davis Eyes..

  • Sucker Free

  • Wuts got Petty Davis Eyes..

    Come through Yoni!!! I knew I would find a reason to laugh today..YEWWW!!! Thanks boo.

  • MotherOfDragons, GetOffMyENuts

    Also...where would a person get this clothing? That does not look like a costume, it looks very authentic. That should narrow the suspect pool even further. They have to know who did this.


    A cops wife who got tired of him stepping out




    DEADT @ that last one.

  • Yoni

    New post - Mother Harriet :nun: :bow:

  • MotherOfDragons, GetOffMyENuts

    First lady twice huh? Hmmmm..whoever it is, its someone with close ties to a person on the police force.

  • Lovezoe

    You have to.

  • Rayne

    In church tho....

  • Hugga Bunch

    Luv you BTP but you already know...anytime crazy news pops

  • Yoni

    The first lady and she hired the killer. I'm trying to cover all angles. LOL

  • Orchidjones

    Them hips don't lie...that's a woman.
    Shoot...I know boot camp and them trainers. They can be a little harsh! And judging by the looks of things, mama needs a girdle.

    Maybe the trainer told her she needed to try harder to get the weight
    off and said a few choice words to make her feel some kinda way...(been
    there ...le sigh.)

    But now, I'm just wondering if its a jaded love story where the trainer was a crush and the woman couldn't take her rejections.

  • millz

    How you doing ?

  • surprise2012

    If nothing else, someone has to recognize her slew feet.

  • Afiya

    She sure put alot of thought into this murder, goodness.

  • SpideySense

    True Crime is the best. I've learned all sorts of handy tips on how not to get murdered. Apparently "don't get married" is one of them.

  • SpideySense


  • GubmentCheeze

    Watched this when I woke up. Isn't it mighty convenient that the hubby was out of town on a "trip". I've never done a B&E before but I would think that it would be done late at night not near 5:00 AM. Whoever did this knows this woman and probably smacking uglies wit her husband...

  • GubmentCheeze

    He wasn't even crying in the ugly cry, no Kim K cry, no Song Cry no nuttin!!!

  • Li

    Oooohhhh the plot thickens. First, find the authenticity of the uniform. Unless s/he sewed the uniform, it was stolen or bought from somewhere. Second, find out if the trainer was in relationship with a woman's husband? You got your killer.

  • Ms Thang

    That's the first thing that came to my mind when I saw this

  • Ms Thang

    I saw him try to squeeze out a tear but it didn't work

  • Mel

    hmm I'll wait till the investigation wrap up and they give and update before I give my two cents ?

  • Go Head With That

    Somebody knows who this duck foot heffa is

  • SunRiseBlossom

    I seen this crap too... The husband showed no sign of sadness during his interview with the reporters on tv... I smell an insurance set up!!!

  • Tawaii

    I think her husband paid someone to kill her. He just happened to be out of town fishing in Mississippi. The husband is always out of town when the wife is killed. He even went on to say that he didn't she was targeted. Who robs a church at 4 in the morining?

  • MsSincerity

    It's an unexplainable look, you just know.

  • Alicia.Ashe

    Scary. Bet the husband did it.

  • Ajavee

    This is awful.

  • CosmoBeauty

    Sick & sad ? Stop posting whereabouts on Facebook.

  • Christina Duphorn Zehnder

    happy 420

  • SandrasNewFave

    I can't see em coming down my eyes, so I gotta make the Song Cry? ??

    That was my jam. Picture alllllll the possibilities...sounds like a love song, sounds like a lo-o-o-o-ove sonnnng. ??

  • Renee26

    All they have to do is look for a current or former love interest or her mans side piece...whomever has that extra noticeable right slew foot is the killer.

  • Renee26

    Cease from Black Ink has that exact same walk...except he's slew footed in both feet

  • sunni_daze

    Wow...Somebody has been watching their crime shows.

  • S. Williams

    all of CSI: Home Edition is up and through these comments. The biggest tell is the walk/slew foot. Not many people have this "condition" in her life

  • Hummingbird_225

    Not Song Cry ???????

  • VeyoncèSupreme

    Omg are ppl blind or just flat out gullable??? . That is clearly a man. With men tendicies. Super long broad shoulders walking like big foot...his shoe size is very evident and so is his height. No woman is going to dress up as a dang on swat officer and break in at 4am to murder another woman???!?! This is how criminals get away with shid. With all this technology you can't determine the height the built and the difference of how man and a woman would think to commit a crime ??!? This woman must be straight butched over 6feet with a size 13shoe with masculine shoulders and strut. That man that committed the murder is somewhere happy and thinking he got away with it. This is how a lot of high profile murders went unsolved the stupid government has no clue. I love being an American but a lot of us are very gullable and easily distracted with lies.
