The family also asked for prayers and privacy as they’re just beginning to grieve the unimaginable loss — but said they’d share more later:

“We’re asking for your prayers of peace for her family and friends during this difficult time, and to allow all of us the chance to grieve and work through this as a family. Please don’t post or spread speculation or details that are unfounded. There will be a time to share more details and to go deeper into her life.”

They also made clear that as of now, Annabelle’s social media accounts will remain intact for fans:

“Her accounts will be used to share what she went through and the joys she brought to all of us. Unnecessary comments only serve to hurt us all, this is a time for remembrance and mourning. Thank you.”
