Terri Bevers Obituary, Death- Terri Bevers, also known as Missy, was born in Graham, Texas, on August 9, 1970. Missy and Brandon Bevers welcomed three children into the world.
Missy made the decision to become a stay-at-home parent and quit her career as a special education teacher not long after their first child was born. Missy made the decision to start a profession in fitness as her kids became older, and she finally rose to fame in Midlothian, Texas, as a well-known fitness instructor. Many people characterized Missy as a small-town girl who loved to serve others and was a beacon of light to everyone she encountered.
Not everyone can quit their professions, devote themselves to their family and home for years, and then successfully flip their careers, but Missy Bevers managed to do just that. She was a kind and devoted woman who was born Terri Leann Strickland on August 9, 1970, but everyone who knew her nicknamed her Missy. As a special education teacher when she married Brandon Bevers in 1998, Missy made the decision to stay at home and devote her full attention to raising their first child.
Whether it was in the classroom as a special needs teacher, as a loving mother to Allison, Hannah, and Sarah, or in her second profession as a fitness instructor in her Midlothian, Texas community, her life is a proved record of caring for others. Most of her students and clients who were into fitness saw her as more than just an instructor.
She served as a mentor, an encourager, and the one who helped them develop confidence in their capacity to improve their lives. As her daughters grew older and she had more time for exercising and pursuing her own hobbies, Missy developed a passion for fitness. She worked out and studied, and by any standard, especially for a mid-forties mother of three, she was in terrific shape. Possibly in the greatest form of her life, she was.
However, Missy’s husband, friends, and the larger community do not recall or discuss Missy in terms of her external looks. They rather highlight her heart, compassion, and capacity to uplift and see the best in people. These qualities served her well in her previous jobs as a teacher, as a full-time parent, and now in her new one as a fitness instructor for Camp Gladiator.
Brandon, her husband, was astounded by the outpouring of sympathy from the Gladiator community after her murder. Many people expressed their appreciation for Missy as well as their sadness and grief over her passing. How such a horrible catastrophe could befall one of the most compassionate people they know is beyond the comprehension of her family, friends, church, and the fitness world, among others.
Missy Bevers, who was to lead a morning fitness class that was to start at 5:00am on April 18, 2016, left her house early that morning and arrived at Midlothian’s Creekside Church of Christ just after 4:00am. She said on Facebook that even though it was raining, “If it’s raining, we’re still training,” thus class was still in session. Unbeknownst to Missy, someone had already forced their way into the chapel before she arrived, dressed in unofficial tactical police riot gear. At 3:50 in the morning, security cameras inside the church catch the person for the first time. Security camera captured this unidentified person moving around the church’s shadowy hallways, breaking windows, and entering offices as they appeared to be looking for someone or something.
After 5 o’clock in the morning, one of her students arrived and found Missy’s body. The student quickly dialed 911 and stated that Missy was lifeless and suffering from head and chest puncture wounds. When police and emergency medical services came, Missy was already dead. According to the police, Missy Bevers’ numerous chest and head puncture wounds were the cause of her death.
Police explained to the public that Missy’s injuries were compatible with the hammer or anything that resembled a mallet that the suspect held as they walked through the church, despite the fact that Missy’s formal autopsy report was not made public by detectives. Police published the security footage of the unidentified assailant perusing the hallways shortly after her death in an effort to gather information about this person. The suspect, whose gender is unknown, is between 5’2 and 5’8 tall, limps, and has feet that point outward when they walk.
Missy’s father-in-law, Randy Bevers, took a bloody shirt to be cleaned to a dry cleaner in Midlothian a few days after Missy was killed. He told the clerk that the blood came from his family dog, who had died after being bitten by another dog. Police later retrieved and examined the blood on this clothing, which revealed it to be non-human blood.
The public began to wonder if the family was involved as a result of this. Investigators, however, ruled out Randy Bevers and his wife Vikki as well as Missy’s husband, Brandon, because they all have convincing alibis. Anyone with information that results in the capture and grand jury indictment of the person who killed Missy Bevers is eligible for a $50,000 reward.
