Police: Deaths of Md. high school student, Army sergeant were murder-suicide
Question of the Day
The deaths of a 17-year-old Rockville High School student and a recruiter with the U.S. Army were ruled a murder-suicide, Montgomery County police said Monday.
The recruiter, 31-year-old Adam Anthony Arndt, and the high school senior, Michelle Lynne Miller, were found dead inside Mr. Arndt's Germantown home Monday morning. Police believe Mr. Arndt shot Ms. Miller and then turned the gun on himself.
A missing person's report was filed for Ms. Miller close to midnight Sunday after she didn't return home at 10 p.m., according to Montgomery County police. Police went to Mr. Arndt's home, in the 12900 block of Pinnacle Drive in Germantown, on Monday morning after it was reported that Ms. Miller might be found there. The pair was found dead.
The circumstances of the shooting were unclear, but police said the two knew each other. Mr. Arndt was a staff sergeant with the U.S. Army who worked as a recruiter and was assigned to help Ms. Miller, who planned to join the U.S. Army Reserves after she graduated from high school.
