Lynn Messer’s note handwriting comparison

This is a continuation in a series of articles on the disappearance and death of Lynn Messer. I am sharing pictures of old notes I received from some of Lynn’s family members. These pictures include copies of notes allegedly written by Kerry Messer and Lynn Messer.

Lynn Messer, disappeared July 8, 2014. We now know that Lynn has been deceased the entire time and I have been told by law enforcement that Kerry Messer, her husband, has not been cleared in the investigation surrounding Lynn’s death.  Kerry is a Missouri state lobbyist who represents family, homeschooling, right-to-life, gun safety, and Christian/Biblical values.

Detective White, of the Ste. Genevieve County Sheriff’s office, told me a few months ago that he would no longer talk about or answer questions surrounding the case and he has stayed true to his word. This does not frustrate me but encourages me to think that law enforcement is protecting the integrity of their case. I’ve seen similar cases take years to prosecute, even when they knew from the start the truth and had evidence to secure an arrest. Although interviews and an arrest are important, in many cases law enforcement has an end in mind. For the investigation I was familiar with, the end goal was a conviction and a conviction is what they achieved.

Aarron and Abram Messer, Wednesday, November 30, 2016.

“Week before last during an interview my father seemingly opened his wallet and showed the world a note that my mother allegedly left when she disappeared on July 8th, 2014. That’s it right up there. Of course that’s not all of it. As Kerry said in that interview he couldn’t share the other half because it wasn’t addressed to him. My daughter commented to me the other day almost nonchalantly ‘grandma didn’t write that.’

‘What do you mean?’ I asked and she said what I have thought and wouldn’t couldn’t say out loud, ‘grandma didn’t call grandpa, Pa… she called him Pop. Grandpa would get so frustrated and correct her because he wanted to be called Pa, but she called him Pop.’

It’s true and it’s just one of many questions and problems with the truth about this note that my dad has now shared.”

I received the below notes from some of Lynn’s family members who in hind-sight, came to the question…was the reason Kerry kept the note a secret and wouldn’t show the entire note because he knew family would see the differences in the penmanship and refute all of the handwriting belonging to Lynn? (I have not independently verified the authenticity of the notes, but I did receive them directly from family members. I do have copies of the entire notes/letters which support the accuracy of ownership).

#7: Note written by Lynn to Elizabeth

#8: Lynn’s cursive writing in a note to Abram.

Some of Lynn Messer’s family members think the note Kerry turned over to law enforcement is not entirely written by Lynn. The note has different parts written in different inks at different times. It leads to the question, are parts of the note written by different people?

I’ve never taken a hand writing analysis class so obviously my opinions are mine alone. In the note that Kerry says Lynn left behind, the ‘a’s all look different from one another. The ‘o’s and ‘0’s look more round where the ‘o’s in Lynn’s notes look more oblong. The ‘m’ in the note looks more like the ‘M’ in Kerry’s signature than Lynn’s writing. The ‘p’ in the note does not look like Lynn’s ‘P’ on the calendar and is formed more like the ‘P’ Kerry signed at the end of the letter.

Questions surrounding the note and the authenticity of the handwriting may someday be answered since the FBI had been involved with different aspects of Lynn Messer’s case.

*Disclaimer: There have been no arrests made in the disappearance of Lynn Messer. Kerry Messer remains innocent of any charges. I am not claiming guilt; but simply pointing out concerns which are of my opinion. See disclaimer in the margin.

  1. I live in Iowa but have family who have known Lynn’s family for a long time. I stressed about Lynn for
    for some time. But, life is for the living and I truly believe our energies are better turned to current events and seeking positive things we can do for childŕen and including our Senior Citizens who can be so lonely. Lynn always looked for ways to help those who really could use a helping hand. We should follow her lead and put the mystery of her death “on the back burner”. It will come to light when GOD decides it should reveal itself.

    • I assure you, Lynn’s children, grandchildren, her side of her family, and close friends do not share your sentiments. I don’t know of any families of missing persons or people who died under mysterious circumstances who want to put the matter ‘on the back burner’. They want answers. They want some form of closure…some form of justice. Everyone has gone on with life, but sometimes the family needs support. They need to know everyone hasn’t forgotten Lynn. I’ll do my part keeping Lynn’s story alive. I noticed you took extra measures to make sure my website analytics didn’t capture your email or I.P. address. Hmmm…… Thanks for stopping bye and keeping up with the progression of Lynn’s case! #JusticeForLynn

    • Janice obviously needs to move on to other more important things so let her. I suppose her family is alive and well, not murdered on the family farm left out in the elements to rot! Janice hopefully does not have a spouse that is dating, and plotting her demise. So yes…..be like Janice and find some Christian s@*# to do. SMH!!!!!!!!!!!! Go Janice. REALLY
