Terry Rose

On Monday, June 10, 2024, the Beaumont Police Department executed an evidentiary search warrant at a residence in the 1600 block of Lindbergh Drive. The search, conducted with the assistance of the FBI Houston’s Evidence Response Team, Jefferson County District Attorney’s Office, ATF, Texas Equusearch, and City of Beaumont Public Works, involved busting up the concrete driveway to search the ground underneath.

Victim: Kimberly Langwell

On Thursday, June 13, 2024, additional evidence was found related to the 1999 missing person case of Kimberly Langwell. Based on this new evidence, an arrest warrant for murder was issued for 67-year-old Terry Rose, a Beaumont resident.

Rose was Langwell’s boyfriend until their breakup six months before her disappearance. Langwell, 34, was last known to have visited Rose’s house on Lindbergh Drive on July 9, 1999, the day she vanished. Her car was later found abandoned at the Phelan Shopping Center on Dowlen Road, with her mobile phone inside but her keys and purse missing.

Rose was taken into custody by the Beaumont Police Special Assignments Unit at 6:15 PM on Thursday, June 13, 2024. The renewed investigation began after police received a tip from a reliable informant in April 2024. Human remains were discovered on the property, which authorities believe to be Langwell’s, pending analysis.
