A man found working at a fundraising carnival being set up outside Beverly High School yesterday was arrested after police conducting background checks on workers discovered that he was wanted in connection with a Maine homicide investigation.

Sebastian C. Moody-Dabney, 22, of Auburn, Maine, is wanted by the Androscoggin County sheriff's department on a charge of hindering apprehension or prosecution in the death of a man named Romeo Parent, according to the Lewiston Sun-Journal newspaper and court documents. 

Moody-Dabney was working for a company that had been hired to run the carnival for the Beverly Education Foundation. 

He made an appearance this morning in Salem District Court on a charge of being a fugitive from justice, and agreed to waive rendition to Maine. A Beverly police sergeant said in court that Maine State Police plan to pick him up sometime later today.
