Michelle Miller suicide

Suicide: Michelle Miller and Army Sgt. Adam Arndt, 31, were found dead

On Wednesday, authorities announced that the cause of death in the residence of a United States Army recruiter was still under investigation. The victim was a 17-year-old female.

In April, the bodies of Army Sgt. Adam Arndt, 31, and Michelle Miller were discovered inside his home in Germantown, Maryland. The first investigation into the case was centered around the possibility of a murder-suicide.

One bullet hole had been punched into each of their heads.

What was on the final report?

In their final report released on Wednesday, authorities stated that although Arndt’s death was caused by suicide, the identity of the person responsible for Miller’s killing remains a mystery despite the joint efforts of the Montgomery County Police and the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner.

“There is a possibility that Michelle Miller could have pulled the gun on herself. It’s undetermined. There is that possibility,” Capt. Marcus Jones with Montgomery County major Crimes Division said.

What did police say about the suicide?

According to Montgomery County Police, who spoke with News4 on Wednesday, the blood splatter evidence is ambiguous, and the bodies were discovered in a bathtub.

“We do know Adam was right-handed and that would have made it very difficult for him to reach around [and shoot her],” Jones said.

No notes were found in the home.

Both families have been briefed on the final ruling, police told News4 Wednesday.

Arndt and Miller are believed to have had a romantic relationship.

Miller and her friend first crossed paths when she enlisted in the Army Reserves, planning to graduate from Rockville High School this year. Joining the Baltimore recruiting battalion, Arndt was employed at a military recruiting office in Gaithersburg. According to the Associated Press, one of his responsibilities was to pay classroom visits.

After Michelle graduated from Rockville High School this year, she enrolled in the Army Reserves. Despite not having met Arndt, Michelle’s father Kevin Miller claimed his daughter was “a little smitten with this guy,” according to the Associated Press.
