Missy Bevers' Mother-in-Law Pens Open Letter to Killer

"Please, come forward!! Give yourself peace, give our family peace."

Marsha Tucker, the mother-in-law of the fitness instructor killed inside a Midlothian, Texas, church last week, this weekend penned a letter to the person who killed her.

Missy Bevers, 45, a mother to three daughters, was attacked and killed early last Monday morning at Creekside Church before she was to teach a Camp Gladiator fitness class.

Surveillance video from inside the church shows someone dressed in tactical gear walking around the facility prior to Bevers’ arrival. Police believe that person killed her and then fled. He or she has not been located.

A letter to the Murderer of Missy Bevers:

Do you even realize what you have done to her daughters, husband, our whole family? Was it really worth it? Why did you think this was so necessary?

You know who you are! Your husband/wife and family members know who you are. They know your "special" walk. Right now, they are as guilty as you are, by not coming forward! I honestly pray you do not have children. My granddaughters at least have the knowledge, their mom was a kindhearted, loving, caring person. You have now ruined your children's life, along with your family's life by doing this senseless act. We can at least visit Missy at her grave site, even though we have the comfort of knowing Missy is already in heaven. Your children will get to visit you in prison, forever reminded of your crazy, senseless act. What a legacy you have doled out to your family! I will be praying for all of them.

I truly feel worse for your family, than mine. Please, come forward!! Give yourself peace, give our family peace. Give some honor back to your family!

God will forgive you!

We will forgive you, because we know and you know, that is what Jesus has commanded us to do.

Marsha Tucker
