It’s a sad day in Sydney, Montana where a high school math teacher, Sherry Arnold who went out running never returned, according to Reuters.
One running shoe was all a missing teacher and mom left behind on Jan. 7 after she went out for an early morning jog in the small eastern Montana town only ten miles from the North Dakota border. Today, her school district website published an announcement of her death. She was married, age 43 and a mother of five–two biological children and three step children, according to ABC News.
Authorities have released the news that two men are in custody, a 22-year-old and a 47-year-old, according to the Sydney Herald. Ms. Arnold who lived in Sydney, Montana was discovered to be missing at 6:30 a.m. the morning of the seventh of Jan.
“Based on a tip from the public, law enforcement took one adult male into custody, and another adult male is being questioned by police,” FBI spokeswoman Debbie Dujanovic Bertram said in a statement. “The investigation to determine what happened to Ms. Arnold continues.”
According to the website of Sydney Public Schools the announcement came after the family had been notified of her untimely passing. Sydney, Montana is a small town with a population of just over 4,800 with little diversity in the mostly white community located in the county of Richland.
One of Sherry Arnold’s math students made a raw, emotional video announcing her death–she says, “Our little safe Montana town has got flipped upside down in the past week, we’ll never see Mrs. Arnold again, but we’ll always remember her kind spirit and how she treated everybody with so much kindness.”
