MIDLOTHIAN, Texas - The family of a woman murdered two weeks ago hopes to shame the killer into surrendering.
Two weeks ago Missy Bevers’ mother-in-law wrote a letter to her killer on Facebook. Over the weekend she penned another one. This time she urged the killer to turn him or herself in, saying it’s just a matter of time before police make an arrest.
Bevers was killed three weeks ago inside a Midlothian church. The fitness instructor suffered puncture wounds to her chest and head. Surveillance video shows a suspect wearing what appears to be SWAT gear wandering through the church before the murder.
Marsha Tucker’s Mother’s Day letter reads,
“It has been 2 weeks since I wrote the 1st letter to you. Almost 3 weeks since you murdered Missy.
I would guarantee your life has been more miserable than ours! Our life has been filled with peace that you wouldn't understand. Something only a God-fearing, saved by Jesus, person truly understands! We have been blessed by so many wonderful people, willing to share our grief, by praying with us, preparing meals for her family and just blessing us with all of their actions in so many ways!
How about you? Are you feeling all the love from your family and friends? Or do they suspect you, thinking something is not right with you?
How did it make you feel when so many people all over this nation, said such glowing things about Missy? You probably sat back and thought," how little do they really know her"? I assume you were jumping up and down when the news about her life was not as perfect as a lot of people thought.
Well, let me tell you a little secret you may not comprehend. No, she wasn't perfect and she never claimed to be. But, the secret is, there is something called "agape" love. Meaning, there really is a love you have, that no matter what you have done in the past or present, you still love them! I know her husband does, her 3 girls, her mom, brothers, all her family and friends.
Sorry, there is nothing that can ever change that! I'm sure that disappoints you. But, it's the truth!!
Are you getting a bit nervous, shaking in your " boots that look too big?" You should be! It's just a matter of time now.
Things would be a lot easier on you to just go ahead and turn yourself in. I'm sure the officials will take that into account.
Go ahead and clear your conscience, you will feel better. No sense in having your family witness you being picked up by the police and leaving that lasting vision on their minds forever! We are all waiting! It's one way or the other!!”
In the latest documents released by Midlothian police it was revealed Bevers and her husband had financial and marital problems.
