Murder of Fitness Instructors Terri “Missy” Bevers and Karen Swift Link to Cell Phone Activity of a Intimate and Personal Relationship External to the Marriage.

Friday, May 06, 2016

 Terri “Missy” Bevers, the fitness instructor killed last month in the Creekside Church of Christ in Midlothian, Texas, received a message that was “creepy and strange” just days before her death, according to a search warrant. Bevers, 45, was found dead at Creekside Church of Christ on the morning of April 18. Terri “Missy” Bevers, 45, arrived at the Creekside Christian Church at about 4 a.m. Monday to prepare for her early-morning Camp Gladiator fitness class. When her students arrived at 5 a.m., they found her unresponsive. Police said she had multiple puncture wounds to her head, like from a hammer type weapon, Swat Gear Tactical War Hammer.
Less than three days earlier, Bevers had shown a friend a LinkedIn message she had received, the search-warrant affidavit says. The message was from a man neither of them knew, and they thought it was “creepy and strange.” The friend did not remember the name on the account, police said. Police said Bevers had been receiving messages from another person on LinkedIn since January that were “flirtatious and familiar” in nature, according to the affidavit. Some of the messages, which police also described as “intimate,” were deleted and then partially recovered by police.

Police said in a separate search warrant that text messages between Bevers and her husband, Brandon Bevers, indicated that they were having marital and financial difficulties. The affidavit also said the phone records indicated “intimate/personal relationship(s) external to the marriage.” Police have not named a suspect or motive in Bevers’ death. They are working to identify a person in SWAT-type tactical gear seen in surveillance video walking through the church and swinging what looks like a hammer (Tactical War Hammer). Police said in the affidavit that the footage indicates the person has a distinctive walk caused by an injury to his or her right leg or foot.

Karen Swift, 44, was murdered in Dyersburg TN, she went missing at 5:30 a.m. on October 30th, 2011, top cop Sheriff Box says investigators observed injuries the body of Karen Swift sustained that appeared to have caused her death. Obvious such injuries that “one could observe” would be gunshot wounds, stab wounds, and/or injuries to the body or head beaten with a weapon. Cops found no blood spatter in the Swift home or Swift car. Randy Butler was Karen Swift’s boss at the YMCA where she had just become a personal trainer when she was killed and her body dumped in a cemetery. “As a worker and as a person, Karen swift did wonderful things for the YMCA,” said Butler. Karen Swift, 44, was an avid runner and took a lot of the different classes. Karen Swift was working as an Aerobic Instructor at the Y in Dyersburg TN, Karen Swift had begun teaching an aerobics class called Silver Sneakers which is a fitness program for older adults. Was a stalker watching Karen Swift at her fitness classes at the YMCA? Karen Swift had as many as 3 cell phones at a time, two were on her husbands account, not hers, one was pre-paid and untraceable given to her to keep in touch with her ‘new friends’, some that she met on the internet. There are no prior reports of Domestic Violence at the Swift house.

KAREN SWIFT LIFESTYLE: “I don’t want to speak badly about Karen,” said attorney Steve Farese. “But were some things going on that were quite unusual.” Attorney Farese thinks little of talk David Swift could be his wife’s killer. “A lot of people say that. Those people are ignorant and don’t know what they are talking about,” he said. I, Bill Warner, have been a private investigator for over 20 years doing hundreds of ‘Cheaters Cases’, I was hired by a friend of the Swift family to investigate the murder of Karen Swift and her lifestyle. Karen Swift was living free and easy with no household bills to pay, she was working 3 jobs for her own money, she was away from home a lot, she was involved in various parties with a lot of booze and without her husband, she was not paying for the 3 bank credit cards issued in her name only and yet she was broke all the time, where did all her cash go and to whom? Karen Swift was living the party life, just like the night she went to the Dyersburg Country Club Halloween Party as ‘Catwoman’ in a skintight black costume without her husband on Saturday October 29th, 2011 and stays until about 11:58 pm, early next morning Sunday October 30th, 2011 at about 5:00 am she is up and out of the Swift home and on the road, she ‘goes missing’ at 5:30 am and turns up dead, her body found dumped in the weeds near the access road to Bledsoe Cemetery and not ‘found’ until December 10th, 2011.

Sheriff Box Says New Leads In Karen Swift Murder Investigation  …Local 24 spoke with Sheriff Jeff Box today. He said a number of people have recently come forward with new information and that the case is still active. In fact, he says a detective works the case every day and that the case is not considered cold. Sorta heard all of this before from Sheriff Box including he was close to an arrest, several times, in the past. Problem is with this “new information” is that Sheriff Box was never able to determine where the actual crime scene was located and what was the actual murder weapon and on top of all that Sheriff Box released the car back to the bank that Karen Swift was last known to be driving during the early morning hours of October 30, 2011, he lost the chain of any evidence obtained from that car.

On Friday February 19th, 2016, the same day that WATN did the story on Dyer County Sheriff Box New Leads In Karen Swift Murder Investigation, Mary Jo Ola a reporter for Local 24 Memphis TN contacted me at 4:32 pm and asked me to do a Skype interview concerning the unsolved murder of Karen Swift, I agreed and she Skyped me at 5:24 pm and we did a 21 minute interview that she video tape recorded. Apparently, so far, Mary Jo Ola at Local 24 Memphis TN has not released the taped interview in which I went into great detail about all the circumstantial evidence that I have discovered that indicates David Swift did not kill Karen Swift and that others who should have been looked at by law enforcement in the murder of Karen Swift have not been interviewed, money talks in Dyersburg TN.
