A slain mother's friends gathered to celebrate her life and the end to the grueling manhunt for her alleged killer.
Ohio Authorities are now making plans to extradite murder suspect Nate Summerfield to North Carolina. Summerfield, who was on the run for 38 days, will face charges of killing his estranged girlfriend, Lynn Jackenheimer.
Authorities said that Summefield killed Jackenheimer while they vacationed in North Carolina over the Fourth of July holiday.
In Ashland, purple ribbons honoring Jackenheimer lined the streets. Hours after Summerfield was captured, her loved ones gathered at Riley's bar where Jackenheimer spent some of her last days.
"Lynn had everything to do with this place," said friend Kelly Braden. "They painted, they cleaned, they had so much fun here."
Jackenheimer was helping her friend get the bar off the ground.
"There's a picture down at the end of the bar of her with some paint in her hair," Braden said. "The day before they left, she was pulling green paint out of her hair."
Riley's was supposed to open the weekend she got back from her vacation in North Carolina. But Jackenheimer never made it home.
"I can't say she was, she is an amazing person," Braden said. "We won't let her go."
Loved ones gathered at the bar on Wednesday night after enduring weeks of searching for her accused killer.
Authorities said that they have a lot to learn about murder suspect Nate Summerfield's 38 days on the run. They also said they will prosecute anyone who they find who harbored the fugitive.
