Police seek Ohio man on warrant after identifying girlfriend’s body in North Carolina

ASSOCIATED PRESS

ASHLAND, Ohio — Authorities investigating the death of an Ohio woman found on North Carolina’s Outer Banks have issued an arrest warrant for her on-and-off boyfriend.

Police on Monday confirmed a body discovered in a vacant lot was 33-year-old Lynn Jackenheimer of Ashland. She went missing early this month during a vacation with her children and Nate Summerfield.

Police say he returned the children to Ashland and apparently drove away.

Summerfield’s brother has told authorities that Summerfield said he strangled the woman. The cause of death, which hasn’t been released, would determine whether the case is a homicide.

Authorities tell reporters a warrant for Summerfield was issued once the body was identified. He previously was described as a person of interest in the case.
