  • Details of Disappearance
    Lynne had just won a contentious custody battle with the courts awarding her custody of her son. She was planning to move out of Florida with her son; her ex-husband vowed to not allow the move. On the evening of her disappearance, she was on the phone with her fiance when she received a call from her ex-husband indicating he had a child support check ready for her to pick up. Lynne was to drive to his Pembroke Pines home. Her vehicle was found parked on the side of the road. A man fitting the description of her ex-husband, and getting into a vehicle similar to one owned by the ex-husband, was seen hurriedly leaving her vehicle location. Later, her ex-husband and another man were seen throwing something over the side of a boat in Government Cut, Miami, then fleeing the scene being chased for some mile or more on the water. Foul play is suspected in Lynne's case given the circumstances. Local, state, and federal authorities have been involved in her case over the years, with the most recent grand jury indictment being brought against her husband in March 2012. He has been charged with her murder.
