The April 18th murder of Missy Bevers in Midlothian Texas by a SWAT-cop imposter was already weird enough, but recent developments are sending the case deeper into the creep zone.
Police have been focusing a lot of attention on the Bevers' unhappy union, and in that aspect of their investigation discovered significant "marital problems" as well as "money issues" by tapping into the couple's cell phones.
One search warrant even states that "a portion of these messages (as well as deleted messages) recovered indicate and confirm statements and tips provided to officers of an ongoing financial and marital struggle, as well as intimate/personal relationship(s) external to the marriage with identified target numbers."
So far eleven such “target” cell phone numbers have been pinpointed, and allegedly the slain fitness instructor was herself having some "intimate" online relations, too, via her LinkedIn profile.
Sadly, it may be that ignoring a certain romantic Web solicitation, a "creepy" sounding message sent to her in mid April, cost the 45-year-old her life days later; but all of the Bevers' communiqués are being analyzed by high-tech security specialists of New York City's police department.
The NYPD has probably the most sophisticated -- and controversial -- means of tracking unwitting suspects and POIs in the world, such as its 'Stingray' simulator technology which mimics a cell-tower to eavesdrop on all calls made or received in a specific area.
Why would that invasive tool be vital in the Missy Bevers murder investigation at this late stage? Because Texas officials think her slayer brought a cell phone with them the morning of the attack to take a few victim pics, and may even be continuing "to visit" the crime scene with it.
Despite that individual still being at large and unidentified, speculation remains firm that this cop impersonator, shown stalking the halls of Creekside Church about a half-hour before Bevers arrival for a scheduled class, "is female."
According to recently released court docs, police have decided that the hammer-swinging killer is most likely not a male, by the suspect's "feminine sway or walk," although they haven't yet landed on a motive for the premeditated assault.
They also believe that *her* distinctive gait, captured on a number of surveillance videos inside the building on the 18th of April, could be "indicative of some type of injury which affects the right leg/foot."
As disclosed in earlier coverage of the Bevers slaying, several exterior cams at the church were "malfunctioning" or possibly deliberately disabled that morning, so no actual footage of the murderer arriving and departing -- if they left the scene at all -- exists.
Police did recently identify a “vehicle of interest” from area CCTV taken hours before Bevers was bludgeoned to death with a hammer, but have not located either the “light-colored 2010 to 2012 Nissan Altima” or its owner.
Regarding last month's revelations that Missy Bevers' father-in-law brought a woman's "bloody shirt" to the local dry-cleaners just days after her killing, this has also been verified and the item seized as evidence. However, it's still not known whether his claim that the incriminating stains were from "a dogfight" is true or false because tests on the substance haven’t been returned from the crime lab yet.
Last week authorities publicly cleared all of the victim’s relatives, friends and students as potential suspects, noting that doing so didn’t completely “eradicate” anyone from future suspicion should more evidence surface.
Whomever the devious and demented person was that viciously slew exercise coach Terri 'Missy' Bevers in the predawn hours of April 18, 2016, the reward for information leading to their arrest and prosecution stands at $10,000.
