Why Is The Missy Bevers Murder Case Still Unsolved?!!?

Here we have a bizarre murder case that should have been solved by now.



Fitness instructor and mother of three, Terri “Missy” Bevers, 45, was brutally stabbed to death inside a Texas church shortly before she was scheduled to lead an early morning fitness class on April 18, 2016.

Just minutes before her death around 4: am the Creekside Church of Christ motion-activated security cameras
On April 18, 2016, a CCTV video at the recorded the following video.

The killer is oddly dressed in full SWAT gear, and the hammer he or she is wielding becomes the ultimate murder weapon used to bludgeon Missy to death.

According to police, Bevers died of “multiple puncture wounds” to her head and chest consistent with what the suspect on surveillance was seen carrying.


  • As a fitness trainer, Missy would teach 5 am classes at the community church. (she was murdered shortly before one of these classes)
  • Missy was also a married mother of three and very active in the community.
  • Missy and her husband, Brandon Bevers, were reported to have both financial and marital issues.
  • Brandon was 600 miles away on a fishing trip during the murder.
  • The killer can be anywhere between 5 ft 2 in and 5 ft 7 in.
  • Killer has a distinctive walking gait (notice the persons right foot in the video)
  • A 2010- 2012 Nissan Altima (not yet identified) was seen driving through the parking hours before the murder. Entered 1:58am and exited 2:04am (See video)


  • A burglar – I would not consider a burglar to be a plausible killer, even though it is thought that the person in the video was smashing the glass and opening doors to possible make it look like a break-in, however, this was at 4: am.
  • The husband Brandon Beavers – has been ruled out due to him being 600 miles away on a fishing trip at the time.
  • Randy Bevers (Missy’s father-in-law) – everything points to Randy, such as:
  1. A few days after Missy was murdered, Randy Bevers was noticed bringing a blood-stained shirt to the cleaners, a woman’s XXL t-shirt. Randy claimed it was blood from a dog injury; supposedly, his vet confirmed the story.
  2. Randy is around the same height and weight as the person in the surveillance footage.
  3. Randy has a motive of freeing his son from a financially strained relationship; Missy may have been cheating on her husband as well some reports say.
  4. Randy has a nearly identical walking gait. (watch video)

Here is the husband, Brandon Bevers giving a statement to reporters:

*However, apparently Randy Bevers has an alibi and was traveling to California during the time of the murder.

What a crazy coincidence that both father and son would be out of town during the murder. 🤔


  • Randy Bevers did it, and his wife covered him with the alibi. They both all but confessed on Randy’s Facebook page in the weeks and months following the murder. The Midlothian police would have us believe there’s no physical evidence to dispute Randy’s alibi, but the truth may be more complex: sources have said it was a Midlothian police officer with whom Missy was romantically involved.

    In short, the thing preventing this murder from being solved is the Texas “good ol’ boy” system.

    • I didn’t realized they confessed on their Facebook page weeks after. I like your theory about a Midlothian officer being romantically involved. hmmm

    • Randy Bevers is the killer 1,000%. It’s SO obvious. If this case wasn’t so horrific it would be comical. There is no way in hell the killer and the father in law just so happen to have the exact gait and body down to the unique arm swinging and right foot that seriously points outward. If you watch his interview he can barely keep himself from busting out laughing. He is a sick twisted individual and that smirk on his face tells me he’s a man with a secret who thinks he’s smarter than everyone else.

      His son, the husband, knows he’s the killer. They planned it together. Think about this….the husband went on and on to the media about the killer’s unique gait and told everyone to pay attention to that gait but he never once said yes, my father has a similar gait but he did not kill my wife! See, they thought that they thought of everything when they planned the murder which is why he wore the head to toe SWAT costume! He had to cover himself completely so he wasn’t recognized on camera or by Missy. What if she had gotten away?

      Only thing the two geniuses didn’t think about was Randy’s gait. They only realized how bad they messed up when the video came out and the killers gait was all the talk. Then the husband addresses the gait but never acknowledges his father WALKS THE EXACT SAME WAY?? He just ignored the elephant in the room? That is SO suspicious and makes it so obvious Randy is the killer. Again, no way in hell the father in law and the killer are twins in the way they walk! That’s not possible.

      As for Randy’s alibi I have yet to see proof he was in CA. They say his phone pinged in CA? So what. He could have left it in CA with his wife when he drove to TX to kill Missy. The husband just so happens to be away when she is murdered is also very convenient.

      Also, the way the husband speaks to the media so calm, cool and collected and never hesitates or stumbles or breaks down or searches for the right words is bizarre! THEN the FAKE wailing episode where he puts on the grieving husband act is a joke.

      I could go on but no need. They did it. The chances it’s not them is ZERO!

  • It was accidental. Missy changed venue in night and only few were aware of it. The person in SWAT uniform was breaking things and creating enough noise to alarm anyone present. Missy was supposed to get visitors soon. It just happened that when she came face to face she tried to overcome intruder. Who attacked her back in anger. (He failed to find anything stealable)

    • She didn’t switch venues. She actually posted on her facebook the night before confirming that her class was in the same place, same time as usual despite the bad weather

  • Did the cameras fail to capture the suspect entering the parking lots or leaving ? And what vehicle did he leave in? Did he walk away from the crime scene?

    • There is video surveillance that has been withheld showing Missy walking around in the church and the killer walking around but not the actual murder. That surveillance is being withheld by the police for investigative purposes which is common. They have established that the Killer is between 5 foot 2 and 5 foot seven and the father-in-law is taller than that. Also he has a condition called spondylosis that would interfere with and restrict his ability to tilt his head back to the degree that the video shows. I have seen video of him walking and moving and his movement is definitely restricted and his illness has been well-documented long before this crime occurred. The police also verified that the blood on the shirt that was taken to the dry cleaners did come from a dog. A number of people have said that the fishing trip he went on was a common thing they did every year at this time and was planned in advance. Also the father-in-law’s Alibi was verified by more than just his wife.

      • No, actially they decided the killer was between 5’6.5″ -5’9.5″. His gait is identical.

      • The fil was not on a fishing trip. The husband was. Alibi was only confirmed by his phone pings

      • I too have Degenerative Disc Disease and Spondylosis. He is more than capable of committing this crime. But. I firmly believe that is a woman. It is either her MIL or a female who knows the father’s walk. I am betting the husband was having an affair. Someone other than the police need to be brought into this investigation. These cops are inept at best. Crooked and complicit in this crime at worst.

    • Exactly! They have video of the car pulling in and out earlier in the night, but not at the time of the murder? Something is off. Of course they have it!

      • The video surveillance of the car is not from the church parking lot – it’s from the parking lot of a sporting goods store across/down the street, that’s why there’s no video at the time of the murder!

  • Where is the video surveillance of the suspect arriving to the church? Did he arrive by walking or was there a getaway car? That is the footage we really need to see and that is the car we need to be looking for.

      • I have followed this case from the beginning and I have always suspected the father-inlaw. It seems odd to me that both he and his son just happened to be “out of town” at the time Missy was murdered. And they both have alibis? I wonder how closely these alibis were checked out.
        Something has been missed here. Three years is a long time!

        • Yes! I just watched a documentary on it and after watching the surveillance video play over and over, they go to the father walking in and out of the dry cleaners. He stands and walks exactly like the person in the video!

      • Here it is coming upon 4 years already (April 18, 2016), and the case has still not been solved! There needs to be justice for Terry Missy Bevers. The Texas Rangers and FBI need to be called in to reopen and investigate this heinous case. They should secure physical proof the Dad and son were somewhere else when the murder occurred. Also, they definitely could have hired a hitman or hit-woman to do the job. Oh so sad, what she must have experienced in the last moments of her precious life. An evil monster could only do such a thing. And it seems the MPD and Sheriff’s Office covering up some details. Time to hire Texas Rangers to get down to facts.

    • According to a show I watched, they are not aware of how he/she arrived/departed the church. There are videos from nearby parking lots that produced two suspicious vehicles but nothing came of either of them. Odd to me that the church would have such clear and excellent video on the inside of the church, where in most cases there would be no worry, but no video at all on doors not any in the parking lots, where random crime could easily occur. I had never heard of this case until watching a show tonight but was surprised to find that the case still remains unsolved.

  • Well, you can safely say killer….

    A) didn’t bring phone
    B) or turned it off/airplane mode

    Killer could be hired and is a very casual walk in , even if he was burglarizing. No cell trace? It seems like this is going to take a very long time until someone stumbles.

  • The father in law stands and walks and has the same build as the person in the surveillance video!!!! Hello!!!!!!

      • I can throw a rock to Ellis County. The problem with this case is, you cant rule anything in or out according to law enforcement here. Most of the sheriff’s departments around here are inept, lacking in training, and lazy. The joke around here is you cant be hired to the S.O. unless you’re at least 75 pounds overweight to start with and then they add on.(seriously, everybody jokes about it) It’s frustrating and disgusting, but that’s the kind of police work you get around here. Oh , theres corruption too, but you never know if its intentional botching or just plain ineptitude. So dont put too much credence in what they “checked out” as far as alibis or evidence. I wouldve said it was a hit, if it wasnt so physically obvious who it might be…….allegedly.

        • Oh yeah and dont forget, the csi report says they retrieved and tested a gun found with the body but NOBODY in any policing agency has ever mentioned that anywhere that I know of.

  • This article is not correct. Randy Beavers did take a shirt to a dry cleaners to be cleaned. It did in fact have blood on it. DNA testing confirmed it was dog blood. The Police confirmed with the Vet that a dog was brought in due to a dog fight.
    There isn’t any proof she was cheating . I think that nonsense comes up because of her fitness and out going personality. It’ s unfair to her, the family, friends, and the judical process to claim fact to speculation.
    The focus on those unfounded issues distracts from pursuing the facts.
    The walk could be temporary . I have arthritis and bercitis in my hip at specific times of the year my hip flares and causes a similar walk. This is when it’ s raining or high humidity the warm summer clears it up.
    Be fair to the family and yourselves and find who did this.

    • Incorrect, there were ‘familiar’ illicit texts between her and at least two other men.

  • I just watched a tv show on this murder where they showed the killer walking over & over. I believe the killer is a woman who is wearing ‘heavy’ oversized shoes – the clothing looks oversized and likely very layered. If the shoes are oversized that will changed their gait – watch how she lifts her foot. The divided door should be able to get a height from there – she walks right up to it. This needs to be solved. Motive COULD be as easy as jealousy.

  • I thought she was beat to death not stabbed. I could be wrong but, when the story broke that is what the police said.

  • Please don’t accuse people of crimes without evidence to support it .
    You could find yourself in jail.
    Also this is slander.
    If people have nothing intellectual to add please keep random points of few to yourself.

    • Actually they will NOT end up in jail. Slander is virtually impossible to prove. And the lawsuit to prove it could cost upwards of $500,000 to 1 MILLION DOLLARS. Don’t try to intimidate a possible witness. And if you are afraid, don6know why you would be. But. If you are afraid, go to a higher power. Submit the evidence anonymously via the Texas Rangers, or the Attorney General.

  • Brandon totally looks deceptive Never looks anyone in the eye Ok The creepy murderous Bever kids that murdered their family in Oklahoma Were they related plus there had to be fingerprints think 2.killers

  • The Altima WAS NOT seen driving through the parking lot of the church – it was a sporting goods store down the street. Getting “facts” correctly in a case is pretty important!

  • The person Inc the video is a woman. It is very obvious from the gait and mannerisms. I thought it the minute I saw the video three years ago. I do think the husband is involved though. The FIL has a curved spine – the person in the video does not.

    • I agree. The moment I saw the video I said That’s a female! Even holding the wall when she walked, it was more like just touching it and running her fingers along the wall.

  • what a joke the midlothian police dept and a damn shame on the fbi.

    *the father in law killed the girl.

    *the cctv is tampered by a police tech( the blacking out of the tape]

    the police is covering something up (Quote : the suspect is approximately 5.2 to 5.7 …………….thats a speculation ,not an approximation……saying just 5.7 is being approximate]
    that gait and tummy is so obvious.
    and the police uniform is a swipe at the police department.
    the CCTV is selectively choreographed before being released to the public.

    this is a silly joke of a police department and small town christian garbage.

    she was cheating so it was ok to kill her.

    oh you fools. .

  • Husband and his parents are involved. The driving around car I believe has no connection to this. Perhaps a student driver was testing the wet road and late night driving condition.

  • I find it ridiculous that they do not have practically an exact height! There are plenty of points of reference in the video to determine the killers height.

  • The vehicle that drove through likely had equipment to scan the cameras and locations of security system from the vehicle: hi-tech! ‘They’ Parked close enough to walk after moving the vehicle and walked, as someone probably stayed outside turning off the cameras from a remote device. Likely had contacted Missy about her class schedule, may have met her in the building &/or attended church there to walk around and see the layout. Burglary of church deposits, a probable occurrence, yet probably more if they didn’t go in earlier to do it! Missy had been active in Crimestoppers reporting, I had spoken to her about tips she had heard and wanted to research before putting in her own tips of matters people in the community knew had affected me, identity theft, & robberies of my family’s estate. Whose car? Requests to add banking individuals for the church followed this crime, also suspicious as Missy helped the congregation in many ways!

  • Randy Bevers was in Californial to pay those rest of the hit-man payment, just as soon as the confirmation that Terri Missy Bevers was killed.

    I have many of the very accurate details in my possession…..call 972-268-4140.

  • I’m not an expert here but the description of the assailant of Missy Bevers looks as if they are suffering from a neurological degenerative disease.
    Hints of a waddle walk , that’s why the confusion with male/female, smashing the windows with poke as apposed to a swing, this is a sign of limit in muscle movement, steadying oneself against walls ,vertigo, and finally the splayed right leg.
    This is highly suggestive of a form of MS, I’m amazed someone in the field has not suggested the same…but then again their specialty probably takes their full attention to notice another murder.
    MS can cause mood swings, sexual dysfunction among other disabilities, these problems can be intermittent and will only become chronic in latter life, the perpetrator may not even be aware of his condition.
    As for motive…I don’t know if Missy trained the disable and this person felt betrayed somehow or they were just mad at god or is it dog? I always get that mixed up.
    I would look at her teaching days and any boy who was picked on and protected by Missy.
    If the church was the target then I would look to see if the church had withdrawn disability support to anyone at the time of the crime.
    Missy may just of been at the wrong place at the wrong time.

  • Just a thought…
    What if it isn’t Randy, or Bobby Wayne Henry, who murdered Missy. But actually is someone who is intimately familiar with Randy’s mannerisms and gait. It appears to me that the person in the video is favoring the right foot slightly more than what’s natural for Randy. And the only video I saw if Bobby was at the funeral. It was obvious he was hyper-aware of the suspicion he was carrying toward his gait. He almost looked like he tried to conceal it when he walked. I’m not saying it is anyone in particular. I’m just throwing a fresh thought out there, base on the evidence.
    Suppose Brandon donned the swat costume, slipped an arch support into the right shoe, and commenced to imitate his dad’s mannerisms. It’s the perfect alibi for both. It looks like Randy but he actually isn’t there, he has an air tight alibi. The gait and mannerisms that point to Randy, clears Brandon.

    He said things in his interview that, to me, were tells. He seemed rather knowledgeable in regards to police jargon. Is he an ex-leo? He was hesitant, as if searching for personal words of endearment, when asked to describe what Missy was like. Most of what he muttered was directed towards her relationships within her community, friends and daughters. He later was able to give personal examples of their relationship. At which time, he seemed to lay it on thick, for someone who publicly acknowledged she was having an affair.

    The rage behind the pludgeoning is indictive of jealousy. I recall that Brandon was the person to state Missy was having an affair. The police never determined that first person,as the result of an investigation. In fact, they never cooberated Brandon’s allegation at all. They only found a flirtatious relationship in text, on LinkedIn. Brandon thought she was having an affair. That’s motive. He tells the police, only to look cooperative and cool about it. Brandon mentions the lifestyle change to often, as being the result of the gladiator class. It seemed he has deep resentment to the gladiator class. “She didn’t have time to drive the daughters around because of it.” She rarely had time for him, because of it. She physically changed and their relationship changed, as a result of the gladiator class.
    He even started warning her to be careful. He imagined harm could come to her, as a result of her early morning classes; according to the interview with Brandon’s sister.
      Also, I’ve not yet found any expert’s’ analysis in this particular investigation, stating, “knives” (claws of a hammer, in this case) are usually seen as an extension of the suspect’s person. It’s my understanding, that it’s considered to be very intimate and personal for an assailant to use a “knife” typology of weapon. However, after learning that the alleged cause of death was a different weapon of choice, which would explain why she didn’t over power her assailant, due to the difference in her health and body strength compared to the unknown subject’s inadequate balance, limp/injured right leg (or knee or foot) and overweight appearance.
    If the other weapon of choice was in fact the murder weapon, and the hammer was used after the initial head injury, that implies premeditated murder, not burglary turned robbery/murder of opportunity. It also establishes that the victim knew the killer and that the killer harbored extreme hate/rage toward the victim.
    The suspect clearly knew the victim’s routine at least moderately, to know there was a window of time between the victim’s arrival and the rest of the group. Also as previously mentioned, to know there wasn’t an alarm for the break-in.
    The assailant also seemed to have enough investigative knowledge to know the swat uniform would conceal evidence of gender, DNA, physical appearance and confuse the investigation enough to slow it down. Conceal the identity of the individual, just in case Missy got away or was some how able to identify the assailant.
    Originally, I also thought the unknown assailant knew the layout of the building, but I’ve concluded that the attempts to open doors that were locked, and other doors that seemed unfamiliar, (Dutch door), seem to indicate the assailant had not been in the building much at all, if at all. The casual, nonchalant demeanor of movement, and lack of urgency implies the familiarity of the victims routine, as previously mentioned, not someone intent on burglary. Also typically most burglary/homicides conclude with some form of theft, or obvious attempted theft, even when interrupted. This subject clearly wasn’t looking for items of value. It looks more like s/he was just passing time while clearing the building. And likely looking for the ideal location to take her by surprise. Which brings up another point, the subject Knew which entry she would use to enter the building. Which was near the bathrooms: the men’s restroom is a logical hiding spot in a dark building to use for the element of surprise. The assailant knew where to park, and that there wasn’t an alarm on the building, (nor silent alarm).
    However, all of the arm chair investigating, (mine included), is muddying the waters and could be creating reasonable doubt for the defence, if and when the murderer is caught. Because of the media attention, creating a bias toward a suspect could get that person aquitted, with a good attorney, which would be an injustice to the victim. Which is why I’ve not made comments until now.
    I believe they have a suspect or at least a subject of interest. However, with the lack of physical evidence, DNA to support their findings, all with the suspect having an alibi, the case is weak at best. If they take it to trial, and the subject is aquitted or any form of “beating the charge” then it’s game over. They can’t ever retry her/him, due to double-jeopardy.

    I would like to add one last thought.
    The angle of the cameras from the ceiling toward the floor could alter the appearance of the unknown-subject’s height, causing him/her to appear shorter than actually are. Brandon stated that the killer is 6ft. The police at one time thought that as well. I’m curious what changed their minds to such a degree.

    Just my thoughts on the matter.

  • The person wearing swatgear is most certainly wearing too big shoes. This is the way I walk when borrowing hubbys way too big, steeltoed workshoes. Feet piont outward – too big and heavy shoes have to be lifted off the ground, they don’t automatically follow your feet thus walking like a duck. I don’t know why, but this female, yep female, has on someone elses shoes and probably someone elses clothes too.
    Did the husband have a mistress/female friend who owns a hammer?

  • Wow. I hope none of you wind up on a jury. Youve got a man convicted based on the way he walks? And you dont even give a damn about that fact that his alibinMORE than simply “checks out”…The man’s alibi was CONFIRMED. Please, if any of you get a jury summons, call in sick. Stay at home. You people are fools. That goes for you all posting bullshit as well as the simpleton that operates this web page. Christ.

  • Stabbing makes it very personal. It was not the husband (confirmed alibi) and I think Missy could have taken the father in a fight. So I don’t know. I think she was having some affairs and perhaps breaking one off escalated this. Was not their to rob anything, was there to kill.

  • I dunno but this case has gone on way to long and needs more attention. If husband didn’t do this, there were problems in the marriage, did he hire someone else to do the murder. Such a sad case. Hopefully will be solved soon. For this poor women to Rest In Peace!

  • Don’t think the police have spent to much time on this case? Have they asked the FBI or other resources? It freaks me out that no one, knows nothing. This poor lady!

  • I know who this is. I reported it to crimestoppers but they did nothing. I’m so frustrated. It is a man I worked with. He has a knee injury. He knows the Bevers family and shares their joy of fishing. He has a full swat police uniform. There is an enhanced video on YouTube thats shows his eyes and he’s wearing a baraclava type mask. I’ve overlayed this pic with pics from Facebook and they match. I want to get attention on this suspect but he knows me and i’m afraid of him.

    • More people should report this person. You need to get your evidence out there publicly. Please.

    • I remember when this case happened and saw a special on tv. Got some coverage for a good period of time. The video was creepy. Actually saw ur your comments on crimestoppers and was completely intrigued and pissed that nobody looked into that. One thing led to another and I searched this case for the first time in a while and saw ur comments. U need to continue to pursue this.

  • That is no coincidence that the husband was out of town. If this isn’t a hit I don’t know what is. The cops must be inept. Even on the Altima you can find every person in the area that owns a silver Altima between 10-12 years. This is ridiculous they haven’t solved this.

  • The person in the video is either a woman, or a man with feminine tendencies. What does her MOTHER IN LAW act, and walk like. Also, her MIL or a female close to the husband and father should be considered suspects. They would be able to mimic the walk in question.

    • I was thinking of the same exact thing and now that I think of it the suspect also appears to walk like a slightly hunched over much older female in my opinion. As I kept watching the video my mind kept going back and forth to a feminine male to just a very much older female hunched over and the gear is disguising her hunch.It’s still a dead giveaway it’s the FIL though. I agree I want to see what her MIL looks like.

  • Wow. I just watched the HLN show and I’m shocked that this case isn’t solved yet.

    I wonder if there is software that can help to identify a person’s unique walk or gait. Maybe there is a way to draw anchor points over a video where the person’s bones and joints are located and have the anchor points follow the person as they walk. It would almost be like a stick figure overlay on top of the killer as they move about the video. This stick figure should create a unique signature of how a person walks including approximate bone ratios. This walk and set of ratios could be compared to potential suspects (from videos around the time of the murder). I know it’s probably not enough to build an entire case on, but I’d be willing to bet that very few people walk exactly like that with similar bone ratios. Maybe it can narrow down who their focus should be on. Also, I can’t see how anyone could identify gender from those videos. I’ve seen many men who walk like women and vice versa.

    Also, is it legal for police to check all cell phone numbers that pinged the closest tower around the time of the murder? It seems that cell phone companies also have the ability to triangulate position of a cell phone within a few feet. This of course assumes that the suspect would have one on him/her (or at least close by) at the time of the murder. Anyone with half a brain would not bring their phone, but maybe this could generate a list of people who were in the area and awake at that early hour. If questioned, maybe a passerby would remember some minor detail that could help break the case open.

    Lastly, I find it mind-boggling that this sluggish looking killer was able to overtake this incredibly fit and athletic woman with a hammer. She must have been completely caught off-guard or fooled. The killer was either a complete idiot for embarking on this flimsy plan or knew her well enough to know this plan would work. Hopefully someone can come forward and help put this one to rest.

    Cool website!

  • In my opinion, Randy’s belly is much larger than the suspect in the video. The walk is definitely similar.

  • I believe Randy the father in law did it and seemed to have police protection, happened at 04:00am he could be back to where he said he was and knew she was there, Brandon and Randy all alibi each other, it’s a close community family.

  • The suspect in video is clearly a woman wearing oversize shoes. See how the toe is always up lifted so they won’t fall off?

  • I think both, Randy’s and Brandon’s alibis cease to prove their innocence if you consider that they could have chartered a plane to the nearby airport to kill Missy that morning…..and then fly back to their respective alibi locations. The camera footage at the nearby outdoors store parking lot may have been a rental car that they rented to go from the airport to the Church and back to the airport.

  • Blatantly, obviously the father-in-law. Posture, physicality, gait… I’m curious about his alibi? Who was it? Where are the receipts?

  • The police state the suspect had a hammer in his/her right hand does anyone else notice something in the left hand they are holding?I see it multiple times in the video but I’m not sure if it’s a object or the reflection of the hallway lights shinning towards the floor.
