The autopsy results are in on a Jesup woman found dead in her home, and official cause of death given for Patricia Rapacki is strangulation.There were reports that Rapacki was stabbed with a hunting knife and her body was put in a freezer in her home. That has not been confirmed. Police found Rapacki’s body after obtaining a warrant to search her home. She was last seen alive December 27th and was reported missing January 6th when her boyfriend — 38-year-old Lynn LaMasters — was arrested following a high-speed chase in her car. Investigators say an initial search of Rapacki’s home last week turned up no evidence in her disappearance. LaMasters, who stabbed himself before last week’s capture, was released from a Waterloo hospital Monday. He was booked into the Buchanan County jail on an unrelated drug charge.
