MIDLOTHIAN (CBSDFW.COM) - A search warrant released by police says the father-in-law of slain fitness instructor Missy Bevers dropped off "shirts that appear to have blood stains on them" at The Dry Clean Super Center of Midlothian.

Randy Bevers told CBS11 News that the blood on clothing he brought to a dry cleaners came from an injured Chihuahua.

According to the search warrant, Midlothian police seized a woman's white shirt, size XXL, that Bevers' father-in-law, Randy Bevers, took to the dry cleaners on Friday. CBS11 obtained a copy of the receipt for the shirt which claims to have "animal blood all over" it. He reportedly had taken four shirts to be cleaned, three of which were men's shirts and the other the shirt in question. Workers from the store contacted police that day, telling authorities that Bevers told them the stains were animal blood.

The employee told investigators that the shirt looked as if someone attempted to clean it up before dropping it off.

Randy Bevers and his son, Brandon Bevers, met with police on Wednesday afternoon.

CBS11 News spoke to Randy Bevers, who claimed that the blood came from an injured Chihuahua he took to an animal hospital in Mansfield. The Chihuahua, a family dog, had apparently gotten into a fight with another dog. He also said he's aware the garment was seized as part of the murder investigation. Bevers gave a written statement to Midlothian PD after they contacted him.

In addition, a top law enforcement official told CBS11 authorities are leaning towards believing the blood came from an animal.
