Kerry Messer secretly transported Lynn’s remains across state lines for burial.
Aarron, Abram, and Elizabeth contacted family members this morning so they heard it from them first instead of from media.
Rumors have been circulating for the last 2-3 weeks that Lynn’s remains were going to be released to Kerry Messer in the near future. Kerry has posted on his Find Lynn Messer Facebook page that he intended to obtain Lynn’s remains soon.
My sources told me that Kerry informed his church First Baptist Church Festus/Crystal City that he in fact obtained her remains and buried them yesterday. Lynn’s remains rest next to Grandma Messer. According to the funeral home a pastor was present at the grave side service; along with, Kerry, an unnamed woman, and two of Kerry’s relatives who were named.
Lynn’s sons had remained hopeful that as long as the investigation was ongoing their mom’s remains would not be released. They have reached out to investigators but do not yet have answers.
Aarron spoke with his dad, Kerry Messer, on two separate occasions this morning and this is what Aarron says transpired:
Aarron: “I heard that you buried mother yesterday?”
Kerry: “Why do you care?”
Aarron: “She’s my mother.”
Kerry: “And I’m supposed to be your dad.”
According to Aarron, Kerry hung up on him mid-sentence.
Kerry also stated that Lynn was buried by “the only family she has left, that actually love her.”
“This is who supporters of MFN are endorsing. A man who takes the body of his children’s mother from the coroner in secret and buries her without a word to her own children, her mother, or her sisters; all out of spite because he is the primary suspect in her disappearance and death.”
Lynn’s remains were released from the St. Louis coroner’s office last week and Kerry had her remains transported to Arkansas. They were cleared yesterday and buried the same day. The sheriff’s office did not have a say in how this transpired; it was up to the coroner. The husband, even if he were sitting in jail, has control of the remains.
Was this a controlling, abusive act Kerry committed against his sons and their families?
This is no quick commute for Aarron’s and Abram’s families, or for Lynn’s side of the family to visit Lynn’s gravesite. What else can a father do to traumatize his children?
Lynn’s remains rest in Walcott, Arkansas, in Mount Zion Cemetery under the direction of Heath Funeral Home in Paragould, Arkansas.
The case remains open and active with new information still being received by the Ste. Genevieve County Sheriff’s Office.
*Correction: Lynn ‘ s remains were released from the Ste. Genevieve County coroner.
