On Sunday, October 2, Lynn posted a verse from the Bible on Facebook knowing that it would be her last post on the platform. "Everyone who does evil hates the light, and will not come into the light for fear that their deeds will be exposed," she wrote. "But whoever lives by the truth comes into the light, so that it may be seen plainly that what they have done has been done in the sight of God." The message concludes by acknowledging that she is sharing verses from John 3:20-21.
