    Maggie Daniels was a counselor at Discovery High School, housed in the Newton-Conover City Schools administrative building.

Newton police searched an apartment Saturday in connection with the death of high school counselor Maggie Daniels.

Daniels, 31, was found dead in her Windsor Apartments home June 28.

Based on information gathered from more than 100 interviews, investigators obtained search warrants for an apartment at Daniels’ complex, the Newton Police Department said Monday. The apartment was searched early Saturday morning with assistance from the Davie County Sheriff’s Department, police said.

Items seized during the search were sent to a state crime lab for analysis. Police said no other information will be released at this time. Investigators still have not released a cause of death or said whether there are any suspects.

“Very serious harm could result in releasing any information prematurely,” Newton police said.

Daniels moved to North Carolina in 2005 just after graduating from Notre Dame College near her hometown of Cleveland.

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.

Less than a year before Daniels was found dead, she tweeted a text message from a friend warning her about a neighbor she had expressed concerns about.

“Be careful with your neighbor you mentioned,” the Aug. 13 screen shot of a text message said. “I would really encourage you to think about a self-defense class and to give serious consideration to other measures to protect yourself.”
