WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. — Police have arrested a suspect in connection to a beloved North Carolina teacher who was found murdered at her apartment.
WSOC-TV reported that Sharman Howard Odom was arrested Saturday in Winston-Salem while he was visiting relatives.
Investigators obtained an arrest warrant for Odom who lived in the same apartment complex as Maggie Daniels did.
The 31-year-old teacher and counselor from Newton was found dead at her apartment in June.
Friends described Daniels as a fun-loving, energetic young woman who was an exceptional athlete and was loved by everybody she knew.
Daniels was originally from Lakewood, Ohio and graduated from Notre Dame College. She moved to Newton, North Carolina, and worked as a high school teacher and counselor.
Authorities have not said how she died, but did say there was no sign of forced entry or foul play in the days before her death.
Police have executed three search warrants in the case on Saturday, July 26 — searching an apartment near where she lived.
At least two different people at the complex said they saw her taking the trash out around lunchtime the day before.
