An 18-year-old who sporadically attended school in Barrington Unit District 220 has been charged with second-degree murder in New York, Nassau County police said.
Maxwell Sherman, of Long Beach, N.Y., was arrested Aug. 24 in connection with the death of an 18-year-old woman who also lived on Long Island. Sherman was arraigned Aug. 25 in Hempstead, N.Y. First District Court.
Sherman and his family split time between their New York and Barrington homes, said Jeff Arnett, District 220’s chief communications officer. Arnett added Sherman attended classes at Barrington High School last year, but was unsure if he obtained a high school diploma from District 220.
The murder investigation, Nassau County police said, began Aug. 22 when the body of Lauren Daverin was discovered at 10 p.m. on a pond’s footbridge in Rockville Centre, N.Y.
The Rockville Centre Herald reported Sherman “allegedly strangled Daverin to death” and left her “nude and in a pool of blood, according to those who found her body.”
Daverin was pronounced dead at the scene.
