17 and dating a 21 - Maxwell and jennifer williams dating
Abby moved to New York to attend school and left Max in Salem.
Despite his misfortune in love, Max's garage was making money.
The only thing that Max wanted was to know the identity of a girl in a picture that Trent carried around.
Max learned that the girl was Trent's daughter, Melanie, which made her Max's half-sister. Max fought hard to protect his sister, despite her confession to him that she was with Trent at the cemetery the night he was killed.
Furious, Max insisted that Melanie come back to Salem with him. Both Melanie and Max were dismissed as suspects, but Max and Stephanie's relationship was over.
