Murder Victim Received 'Creepy' Message Prior To Death

A fitness trainer ad mother of three who was found murdered in April reportedly received a "creepy and strange" message on LinkedIn just days before her death.

Terry "Missy" Bevers' body was found on April 18; she was attacked and killed in the Creekside Church of Christ in Midlothian, Texas.

Just three days before her death, Bevers reportedly showed a friend a disturbing message she had received from an unknown man on LinkedIn. According to a police search warrant, the message "was from a male unknown to them both, and they both agreed that the message was creepy and strange," CBS News reports.

Investigators also reportedly suspect Bevers, 45, was having an extramarital affair, based on "intimate" and "flirtatious" LinkedIn messages that she had received. The police contacted a "person of interest" in the case, who admitted that he had communication with Bevers on the website. Though police were only able to recover a portion of the messages because some had been deleted, they appeared to be "intimate in nature."

Other affidavits revealed that Bevers was experiencing money problems and difficulties in her marriage.

Footage from a security camera at the church shows the suspected killer in tactical gear, walking with a "feminine sway" that some police have said indicate an injured foot. Police have yet to determine the gender of the suspect.

Investigation of cell records for Bevers' family members further confirmed a history of marital strife, as well as financial troubles, and possible affairs. A warrant for investigation uncovered a blood-stained shirt that Bevers' father-in-law had dropped off at a laundromat. He reportedly told the authorities that the bloodstains were from a fight that his dog had with another dog.

Investigators said the killer may have used social media to track Bevers' scheduled workouts, and reports indicate Bevers may have been in contact with her killer. Evidence also suggested that the killer recorded the murder on a cell phone, the NY Daily News reports.

The Oaks Farm Dairy has offered a reward of $10,000 to anyone who provides police with information that leads to the killer's apprehension, according to ABC News.
