Maggie Daniels, 31, was found dead in her Newton apartment Saturday.

After “several good days of work” on the investigation into the homicide of Newton high school counselor Maggie Daniels, police on Monday requested surveillance video from anyone in the area surrounding Daniels’ home.

Newton police asked for any businesses or homes from 15th Street to 20th Street on North Main Avenue that have exterior surveillance cameras to contact investigators. Police are looking for footage from June 27 and 28.

Police said they continued to interview neighbors over the holiday weekend and will follow up on tips or leads reported so far.

Daniels, 31, was found dead in her Windsor Apartments home on June 28. Police have not released a cause of death or named any suspects.

Daniels moved to North Carolina in 2005 just after graduating from Notre Dame College near Cleveland, where she is from.

In May 2013, Daniels received a master’s degree in counseling from Appalachian State University. She began counseling students at Discovery High School in Newton later that year.

A memorial is scheduled for 4 p.m. Wednesday at Lemon Gymnasium in Newton-Conover High School, where Daniels once coached basketball and taught English.

Funeral services were held Monday in Cleveland. The family has asked that in lieu of flowers, donations be made in Daniels’ name to Discovery High School, 605 North Ashe Ave., Newton, NC 28658.
