Police arrested Maxwell Sherman, 18, of Long Beach, and charged him with second degree murder in the stabbing death of 18-year-old Lauren Daverin.
Lauren Daverin’s body was found in Rockville Centre, Long Island, about 10 p.m. Thursday. She was reportedly hanging out with friends on the footbridge over Merrick Road.
David Paiz told Eyewitness News that he had been hanging out with Lauren Daverin and a few other kids when he left to get something to eat. When he returned about an hour later, he found her body, naked and bloodied, with her clothes lying next to her.
A Facebook memorial page has been set up for Lauren Daverin by her sister. Her wake will be held on Monday at Vernon Wagner Funeral Home.
