Search Warrants Reveal New Details In Bever Family Murders

Posted: Updated:
TULSA, Oklahoma -

New court documents are shedding light on what homicide investigators found at the Bever family murder scene.

New evidence suggests the murders of David and April Bever and three of their children were not a spontaneous act, but one planned in advance. Search warrants show a plan detailing the killings was kept on a computer thumb drive.

Documents also say officers found bloody footprints all over the floor and several of them were made by bare feet. Some belonged to the victims and some to the suspects, so the officers wanted footprints taken of Robert and Michael Bever, to figure out who made which prints.

Detectives also asked a judge for blood samples from the brothers for DNA comparison to the scene.

When officers searched the home with a warrant, they were looking for knives, machetes and swords, along with computers, cell phones, thumb drives or documents that would contain plans of a mass homicide along with military style or tactical clothing, masks, gloves or blood-stained clothing.

An attorney for the 2-year-old girl who was not injured and the 13-year-old girl who survived, says they are in a loving, safe home now. The 13-year-old survivor will be the key witness in the case as it moves forward.

Public defenders have been appointed to represent the two brothers, Robert and Michael on their five counts of first-degree murder and one count of assault with intent to kill. Not guilty pleas have been entered on behalf of both brothers.
