Sources in law enforcement have confirmed skeletal remains were located within the past 24 hours on property which belongs to Kerry Messer, husband of Lynn Messer who disappeared in the summer of 2014.
The Daily Journal has been in touch with Ste. Genevieve County Sheriff Gary Stolzer, who confirmed a hunter scouting for deer located the remains.
He told a Daily Journal reporter this morning that the FBI has been called in to assist in the investigation. He added it is way too early to confirm the remains are that of Lynn Messer.
Kerry Messer has remained a top suspect in the disappearance of his wife. He initially reported waking up one morning to find her gone from their house.
We will continue bringing updates as this story unfolds.
