Earlier this week, Brandon Bevers appeared on a Fox affiliate in Texas.

About a month ago, the body of Bevers’s wife was found in a Texas church, a death that garnered widespread attention. Last week, police held a news conference in the case, telling reporters that the investigation was ongoing.

And in his interview this week, Bevers said he was so discouraged, he wanted to “reach out” to the person responsible for her death.

“As odd as it may sound, I can truly forgive you for what you’ve done. But only if you come forward,” Bevers said. “Turn yourself in. Do what’s right. Don’t live the rest of your life with this in your heart because it will eat you like cancer.

“The same applies with my family. We need closure. This is going to eat us alive for many years to come.”

Bevers’ 45-year-old wife, Terri Leann Bevers, was found dead in Creekside Church of Christ in Midlothian, Texas, in mid-April. Her body was discovered by the students of the fitness class she was expected to teach that morning.

A suspect was captured on surveillance footage from the church – but that person was dressed in SWAT-style gear, like a police officer. He or she arrived before Bevers, a mother of three who also went by “Missy.”

“In a strange way, I’m thankful for the attention that this has received,” Brandon Bevers told the Fox affiliate this week. “But it goes back to the fact that it happened in a house of God, and that’s pretty disturbing.”

The Midlothian Police Department earlier this month said that authorities had checked out more than 1,000 tips about the death, according to the Dallas Morning News.

At a news conference last week, Assistant Chief Kevin Johnson said authorities didn’t consider any of Bevers’ friends, family members or colleagues to be suspects, the newspaper reported.

“I don’t know if it’s business related or some kind of jealousy,” Bevers told the Fox affiliate. “I’ve pretty much exhausted every scenario and every avenue that I can think of, of who could have done this.”
