MIDLOTHIAN — The plot thickens in the Terri “Missy” Bevers murder investigation. Midlothian PD released search warrants Thursday that reveal cops were investigating two persons of interest who communicated with Bevers through social media.

No, not Facebook, Twitter or Instagram. We’re talking about LinkedIn.

The first is a man Bevers, apparently, did not know. A friend told cops the man sent Bevers a “creepy and strange” message on LinkedIn about three days before she was killed.

The second person, according to the search warrant, admitted to exchanging “flirtatious and familiar” messages with Bevers beginning in January 2016 leading up to her death.

Midlothian cops are now investigating target numbers from Bevers’ iPhone and and iPad she shared with her husband. They’ve recovered deleted messages they say confirm the couple was having financial and marital problems.

Missy Bevers suspectThe 45-year-old fitness instructor and mother of three was murdered at the Creekside Church of Christ on April 18th when she showed up to teach boot camp. Surveillance video captured her suspected killer dressed in tactical gear carrying a hammer.

In another development last month, investigators looked into a bloody shirt that was taken to the dry cleaners by Bevers’ father-in-law days after her murder. He claims it was animal blood from a dog fight.

Meanwhile, Midlothian cops are hoping the footprints left behind in the digital world will solve a murder in the real one.
