Lynn Jackenheimer Missing: Ohio Mom's Boyfriend Allegedly Confessed To Her Murder

Posted: 07/10/2012 5:37 pm
By David Lohr


Lynn Jackenheimer went missing on July 4.

Excerpts:

Richert said Summerfield dropped the children off at a family member's house before he allegedly went into hiding. The children, however, have been unable to assist police in the investigation.

"The 13-year-old is autistic and the 3-year-old is, well, 3 years old," Richert said. "The children were kept in the dark. [Summerfield] had told them, 'Mommy went for a walk and we'll see mommy when we get home.' They were kept in the dark and have not been a lot of help to us."

According to Richert, Summerfield and Jackenheimer were involved in at least one domestic violence incident.

In 2009, Summerfield violently choked Jackenheimer. His arrest warrant also refers to an earlier incident, where he locked her out of their residence after an argument. She was nude at the time, according to the warrant. Summerfield was ultimately found guilty of domestic violence and sentenced to a 60-day suspended jail sentence and one-year probation.

A purple ribbon for domestic violence awareness hangs from the stop sign at the intersection of Evergreen and Dorchester streets. Several ribbons have been put up along the street for missing mother Lynn Jackenheimer. In the background center is Nathan Summerfield’s home at 310 Dorchester St.

Authorities in North Carolina continued searching Tuesday for Lynn A. Jackenheimer. Meanwhile, detectives in Ashland County spent the day developing leads in an attempt to find Nathan J. Summerfield.

Authorities released some information about the pair's travels last week to the Outer Banks of North Carolina and Summerfield's activities when he returned to Ashland Sunday without Jackenheimer.

The Ashland County Sheriff's Office confirmed reports that Summerfield's cell phone had been found Sunday in Ashland. Capt. Carl Richert also said surveillance photos were obtained showing Summerfield's car near a local ATM at about 10 a.m. Sunday.

Lynn Jackenheimer's family in North Carolina

Law enforcement frustrated

11:15 AM, Jul. 13, 2012



Family searches Outer Banks for missing mom: Family members of Lynn Jackenheimer are looking for clues after she disappeared while on vacation in North Carolina's Outer Banks.

ASHLAND -- Lynn Jackenheimer's family feels closer to her after arriving in North Carolina to help in the search, a family friend said Thursday.

"They believe with all their hearts that she is in North Carolina," Mandy Schonauer said.

Last week, Jackenheimer, 33, went to the Outer Banks with her on-again, off-again boyfriend Nathan Summerfield, their 3-year-old son and her 13-year-old daughter. She did not return with them. Summerfield's brother called police to say Summerfield told him he had strangled the woman.

Search suspended for missing Ohio woman

Sam Walker | July 14, 2012

The Dare County Sheriff’s Office suspended their search Friday on Hatteras Island for a missing Ashland, Ohio woman, due to weather conditions.

But nine of Lynn Jackenheimer’s acquaintances, including her step-father, sister, and brother, said they are not giving up and will continue their own search.

A vacation rental company is providing Jackenheimer’s family and friends with free housing on Hatteras Island for as long as they wish to stay.

Nate allegedly admits to killing Lynn, how he killed her, how he disposed of her body, didn't harm the kids and takes off. Why not also tell is brother where her body could be found? I wonder if it is possible she is still alive and Nate has kidnapped her? The murder story being a distraction? Hopeful thinking maybe she is alive.

Snip - He took off, and police have not been able to locate him.

“I believe that Nate told his brother that he strangled her and buried her in the woods off the side of the road and covered her with brush,” said Raymond Johnson, Jackenheimer’s stepfather.

Good job, LE, for getting the arrest warrant out there to haul him in. There needed to be no chance for him to play pitiful and somehow get access to those kids.

Authorities in two states pressed a manhunt today for Nathan Summerfield, the prime suspect in the murder of Ohio mother Lynn Jackenheimer, whose body was recently found in North Carolina.

ASHLAND, Ohio - The parents of wanted fugitive Nate Summerfield, who's accused of murdering Ashland mom Lynn Jackenheimer, are seeking custody of their 3-year-old son, Leland.

Jackenheimer's parents have had custody of the children, ages 3 and 13, since their daughter disappeared and was later found murdered. When the Jackenheimers went to Ashland Family Court Monday to request full custody of Leland, they learned the Summerfields are also petitioning to get full custody of the boy.

A family friend said the Jackenheimers "were completely shocked" when they saw the Summerfields in court.

Surely these people understand the situation - whether or not they had anything at all to do with Lynn's murder, their own son is a fugitive and the prime suspect in the case. It would be unwise, if not completely irresponsible, for them to be awarded custody.

Also, the courts do not look favorably upon splitting up siblings. Since they are the biological grandparents of only one of the children (is that correct?), and Lynn's are both of the children's biological grandparents, it would seem most likely that her parents would retain custody.

Summerfield's parents file child custody motion

By IRV OSLIN T-G Staff Writer Published: August 1, 2012 4:00AM

ASHLAND -- Nathan Summerfield's parents have filed a motion in Juvenile Court to be included in child custody proceedings. However, contrary to media reports, they have not filed for custody of a 3-year-old boy that Summerfield and Lynn Jackenheimer had together.

"Summerfield's parents have filed a motion to intervene," Juvenile Court Judge Damian Vercillo said on Tuesday. "We don't know whether they are going to ask for custody or visitation."

~Snipped~

Last week, Summerfield's parents, John and Sandy Summerfield, filed a motion to intervene. A hearing is scheduled for Aug. 27.

Vercillo explained that it is common for grandparents in child custody situations to file motions to intervene.

"From a legal standpoint, even though they are grandparents, they have to be part of the case before the court can consider their rights," he said.

Report: How Nathan Summerfield avoids capture

Posted on: 8:44 pm, July 31, 2012, by Alix Bryan, updated on: 08:48pm, July 31, 2012

(VIDEO)

ASHLAND, Ohio (Fox8) — As the manhunt for accused killer Nathan Summerfield continues, CBS 6 affiliates in Ohio, the Fox 8 I-Team, is learning more about the difficulties that authorities may be facing in their search.

According to friends of murder victim Lynn Jackenheimer, it appears Summerfield is frustrating investigators with his knowledge of technology.

Rhiannon Burkhardt, a lifelong friend of Jackenheimer, told the I-Team, “He is extremely intelligent, that’s the problem we’re dealing with. He can hack into anything, he can play with your mind. Phone bills, phone towers, it’s been just a nightmare, showing that he’s one place and you go and he’s not at that place or it bounced off a different tower.”

Eventually they will find this man, and then we
will watch helplessly in horror as his attorney
manipulates the system. I cannot believe how
far we have come in forensics, and how far back
we have fallen within our judicial system.
