Lynn Jackenheimer's Body Found as warrant is issued for violent ex-boyfriend Nate Summerfield who fled after 'telling relatives he strangled her'

Authorities investigating the death of a mother whose body was found two weeks after she went on a vacation with her children and former partner have issued a warrant for his arrest.

Ohio police confirmed yesterday that a body discovered in a vacant lot on North Carolina's Outer Banks was 33-year-old Lynn Jackenheimer of Ashland.

Nate Summerfield was said to have fled after returning the children and telling his brother he strangled his wife.

The cause of death, which hasn't been released, would determine whether the case is a homicide. Her body was found in a bag by a construction worker about 30 minutes from where she was last seen.

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.
