Missy Bevers - Crime scene location

This is the church where Terri "Missy" Bevers was murdered.

The Creekside Church of Christ is situated beside Highway 287 in Midlothian, which lies to the south of Dallas, Texas.

On the night of April 17th, 2016, 45-year-old fitness instructor Missy Bevers announced on Facebook that her early morning class would be taking place inside the building instead of the parking lot.

At the time, the weather forecast was predicting heavy rainfall and thunder.

At around 4 a.m. the next morning, an unidentified person wearing police tactical gear entered the building and began opening doors and smashing glass.

Judging by the surveillance footage, the person in question seemed to wander around the hallways with no intent on stealing anything. According to the police, no items of value were missing.

Shortly afterwards, the mother-of-three arrived at the church and began preparing for her fitness class. After going inside, she was seemingly attacked by the suspect, who was carrying a hammer and other tools.

Forensic podiatrist Dr. Michael Nirenberg was shown unreleased surveillance footage of Bevers inside the building. During the footage, he saw the fitness instructor turn her head, as if she had just heard a noise and realized that she was not alone.

At around 5 a.m., one of Bevers' students arrived and discovered her body.

The 45-year-old had suffered a number of puncture wounds to her chest and head. Notably, none of her personal belongings had been taken.

The nature of the crime has led investigators to believe that the suspect used Bevers' online schedule to figure out where she was going to be. The person in question then arrived at the church the next morning in police tactical gear with the sole purpose of killing her.

The opening of doors and the smashing of glass may have been done in an effort to make the murder look like a burglary that had gone wrong. The tactical gear was most likely worn as a disguise.

During the investigation, the alibis of Bevers' relatives were all checked out.

Although the police have said that they have a list of persons of interest, no arrests have been made. They have also been unable to determine the killer's gender.

Sadly, the murder of Terri "Missy" Bevers remains unsolved to this day.
