(NBC DFW) Three search warrants released Thursday in the Missy Bevers murder case reveal she was facing financial difficulty and marital discord and that in the days before her murder she had received a “creepy and strange” message from an unknown man on LinkedIn.
According to one of the warrants, messages recovered from the phones owned by Brandon and Missy Bevers “indicate and confirm statement and tips provided to officers of an ongoing financial and marital struggle as well as intimate/personal relationship(s) external to the marriage with identified ‘Target Numbers.'” Police did not say whether any of that information was a factor in her killing.
The extracted data provided police with a list of potential persons of interest, the “Target Numbers,” based on the communications (texts, messages, photos, videos and recovered deleted messages) between them and the victim. The “Target Numbers” referred to in the search warrant include 11 phone numbers for nine people.
“We don’t have information that indicates the killer talked to any target numbers, nor do we have specific information to believe the killer video recorded the murder,” said Midlothian Assistant Police Chief Kevin Johnson.
