Lynn Messer: 1st Forensics Results

Lynn

The pathology and forensic test results are beginning to be released by investigators.

Here is what the family has been told so far:

Lynn has really been gone the entire time and her body has been exposed to the elements the entire time. Police said it just confirmed what they already knew. There were no other specifics, which leaves many questions.

This laid to rest questions and thoughts that have occupied Lynn’s loved one’s minds. Such as, if Lynn had left of her own will, wandered off, and came back after organized searches.This disproved that idea.

A reminder to my readers: The soil samples are what we have been praying about…See: Lynn Messer: Reversal of Destiny

 

KFVS 12 just updated this: According to Ste. Genevieve County Sheriff Gary Stolzer, a medical examiner in St. Louis said that she does not believe Lynn’s bones moved since she disappeared. Stolzer said that would indicate that her body remained in the same spot since she disappeared in July 2014.

March 24, 2017, 5:00 p.m. update:

I’m learning that there may be some conflicting headlines regarding today’s report. Not all forensics and pathology reports are in right now and it may require putting multiple reports together to reach conclusions. So my understanding is…today’s report from The St. Louis County Medical Examiner’s Office states it appears Messer’s body was out there for the two year time period.

Someone may have jumped the gun on this statement being the same as… the body was located at that same spot the full two years. The soil samples are not in yet.

I’m sticking to my original statement, Lynn has really been gone the entire time and her body has been exposed to the elements the entire time.

    Thanks Carolyn; no surprises here. We have all been on pins and needles waiting for forensic results. Makes one wonder about why Kerry was so anxious for that 4 wheeler at 4 am the night of her disappearance.

    I’m assuming that does not mean necessarily, that her body has been in the same place. Soil samples will prove that.

        Wow. I did not expect to hear that. With the awful heat following the time she disappeared, it’s difficult to imagine that someone, even within a fair distance from passing, did not discover her.

      • I agree. I didn’t expect these results either. With numerous search parties it seems someone should have seen her, or dogs should have noticed her scent or decay. What would have kept dogs from noticing?

  3. Um, Something isn’t right here. The police went over every inch of their property. Dogs would have detected something. The body would have had to have been moved at some point in time. I don’t believe the statements of the police. Maybe they aren’t releasing the truth as the case is still under investigation.

    • I wonder why the case hasn’t been turned over to the Missouri Attorney Generals Office. I understand the FBI has been involved to some extent. Hopefully they are brilliantly doing an ace job and know exactly what they are doing by releasing limited information.

It’s brief, simple and open ended.

      I am not sure that, as large as the farm was, the police could have gone over “every inch” of the property. This was in July when the foliage was dense so in that remote area of underbrush and on the outer edge of the property (as I recall from the map where they found her), she could have been missed. And, it is unrealistic to believe she could have gotten herself that far away in the middle of the night. If it was so remote that a decaying corpse could not be detected in the underbrush, then dogs would not have discovered her body, either.

      • Search parties used GPS to track and mark on a map the locations that were searched and that area was searched. I would like to know how professionally trained dogs would not have picked up the strong scent in the hot July and August heat.

  4. Keep in mind, that the finding that the body has been out there the entire time is approximate. For instance, the body could have been somewhere else on the property for the first month after the disappearance and then moved to the spot it was found and the tests wouldn’t be able to detect the difference. These tests can’t detect between a few weeks or even a month or two given the state of the remains. What the tests show is it had been there for quite some time, probably close the entire time she has been missing. It will be difficult to pinpoint many specifics with her remains due how little remains and the elements destroying so much, but I’m sure they will be able to provide some answers.

    • I’m hopeful that they study the soil around and on top of Lynn’s remains layer by layer. They layers of monthly and seasonally debris should be in the same order on the ground, and on top Lynn. So say, if the 2014 summer and fall debris are under her they will know she was placed there in the winter. Also, if the body had been moved significantly, I’m hopeful the soil samples will show the different types of soil from location to location. I’m not a professional but I think the testing has this capability. Are you a professional?
