The Newton Police Department is conducting a death investigation after a woman’s body was found in an apartment Saturday.

Newton Police Major Timothy Hayes confirmed that the victim was Margaret “Maggie” Elizabeth Daniels, 31, a guidance counselor at Discovery High School with Newton-Conover City Schools.

Police say they received a call at 10:37 a.m. Saturday that someone had found a body at 100 West 17th Street. The Windsor Apartments are at that location.

The investigation is ongoing, and police did not immediately release additional details.

A post on the school district’s athletics boosters Facebook page called Daniels “a mentor, friend, educator and coach to many in our community.”
