The father-in-law of the Texas fitness instructor found dead on April 18 dropped off a shirt with apparent blood stains four days after the killing.

Marsha Tucker, Terri’s mother-in-law, believes the fitness instructor was targeted.
“They knew the time she would be there,” Tucker says. “She would put times out there on Facebook. They knew. I mean she did that for people that did her ‘boot camp’ and it was always out there.”
“They are reaching out far and wide,” said Brandon Bevers to Fox 4 News.
Brandon Bevers told reporters the blood was from a dogfight in which his father’s Chihuahua was killed. A Facebook post of the Chihuahua appears on the Brandon’s mother’s Facebook.
“It’s just a sign people are being diligent about the situation and responding to the police,” Brandon said.
By them doing this tells me that they’re being diligent and doing their job on any tiny little whatever that comes across is being looked at, ” said Randy Bevers. “And it should be.”
