Nate Summerfield, 27, who was staying during the week of Independence Day at a rental on Cutlass Lane with Jackenheimer, their 3-year-old son, and her 13-year-old daughter, has not been seen since July 8 in Ohio when he dropped off the children with their grandparents.
Summerfield allegedly told a family member he had strangled Jackenheimer and buried her in North Carolina, which lead Summerfield’s brother to call police.
