• Police execute 3 search warrants in case of slain teacher


    NEWTON, N.C. - It's been exactly one month since a beloved teacher in Newton was killed and still no arrests have been made.

    Maggie Daniels was found dead in her apartment in Newton on Saturday, June 28.

    At least two different people at the complex saw her around lunchtime the day before, taking her trash out.

    Police still have not released her cause of death but did execute three search warrants in the case on Saturday -- searching an apartment near where she lived.

    Authorities said they served a search warrant for an apartment at Windsor Apartments and another for cellphone records in connection with the Maggie Daniels case. They would not say what the third warrant was for, but did say they got help with the search warrants from the Davie County Sheriff’s Office.

    Mica Weaver said she was stunned when she arrived home around 1 a.m. Saturday to see police at the apartment complex. She described seeing investigators going in and out of the same unit several times just a few doors down from where Daniels lived.

    “To see that at 1 o’clock in the morning kind of threw us off; just a surprise to us as anything,” Weaver said.
