NEWTON, N.C. -- Investigators went back and conducted another search of the apartment in Newton where the body of a popular high school teacher and counselor was found last Saturday.

Newton Police and crime scene technicians from the State Bureau of Investigation spent several hours Wednesday afternoon inside the apartment where 31-year-old Margret Daniels lived.

Her body was found Saturday morning sprawled on the floor of her bedroom. Investigators have not publicly said how she died.

"It is kind of scary for people, especially those [around] right around here," said Lorraine Waters, as the search inside the apartment continued.

Neighbors in the Windsor Apartments complex have all heard various theories and rumors about what happened, but no one really knows for sure.

Teams of police officers went door-to-door to again ask those living in the complex what they saw or remembered about Daniels and any friends of hers.

Daniels was a teacher and guidance counselor at Discovery High School in Newton.

Investigators also took another look at a path that cuts through the woods at the rear of the apartment complex; the path leads right to the back door of Daniels' apartment.

There is a car dealership next to the main entrance of the apartment complex. The dealership has a number of surveillance cameras, one that points at the complex entrance.

Investigators are reviewing video from the camera to see if there is anything that might provide a clue in the case.
