What authorities initially believed to be a murder-suicide in Montgomery County involving a high school girl and an Army recruiter may not have been.

Michelle Miller, 17, was found dead in a home in Germantown in April. Adam Arndt, 31, was found dead next to her.

Both died of gunshot wounds; police initially determined that Arndt shot Miller, and then himself. But after receiving final forensic reports from the state medical examiner's office, police are now ruling the manner of Miller's death "undetermined."

That means the possibility exists that Miller, a student at Rockville High School, shot herself. The two were believed to be in some sort of romantic relationship after meeting when Miller decided to join the Army Reserves when she graduated high school.
