Mother Killed On Outer Banks Laid To Rest Today

A northern Ohio woman killed during a vacation to North Carolina's Outer Banks is being buried in her hometown.

The Ashland Times-Gazette reports 33-year-old Lynn Jackenheimer will be buried Monday in Ashland. Police suspect she was killed by her on-and-off boyfriend, Nathan Summerfield, while vacationing with him and her two children earlier this month.

Some of the mourners who attended calling hours Sunday wore T-shirts with the slogan "Justice for Lynn."

Her body was found in a vacant lot in Frisco, N.C. Authorities say she died from strangulation and stab wounds.

Police are searching for Summerfield, who is wanted on a murder charge. Police say he returned the children to Ashland and drove away.

Summerfield's brother has told authorities that Summerfield said he strangled the woman.
