WEST VIRGINIA (WAVY) - U.S.Marshals have reportedly received information that accused killer Nate Summerfield might be in the eastern part of West Virginia, according to officials.
The West Virginia Fusion Center told WAVY.com Wednesday afternoon that Marshals informed them Summerfield might be in the areas of Randolph County, Tucker County or Grant County.
Summerfield is wanted in connection to the strangulation and stabbing of Lynn Jackenheimer, who was reported missing in the Outer Banks in July. Her body was found on July 14.
The fusion center is a state agency that helps coordinate law enforcement efforts and intelligence. When officials receive information from law enforcement agencies, they distribute that information to local agencies and other groups, such as hospitals.
Officials could not tell WAVY.com why the Marshals believe he is in West Virginia.
