Flint’s wife, Brenda, posted on her Facebook page, “”We should be going through wedding photos but instead I have to pick out clothes to bury my husband in. People aren’t meant to feel this much pain. My heart is gone and I just really need him to come back. I can’t take much more. I need him here.”
A video of the two at their wedding was also released by Brenda, in which she said that she does not understand what just happened.
