BALTIMORE (CBSDC/AP) — The Office of the Chief Medical Examiner has ruled that the cause of death of a 17-year-old Rockville High School student, whose body was found along with that of a U.S. Army recruiter in his Germantown home, is undetermined.

Montgomery County Police said Wednesday that the April 8 death of the recruiter, 31-year-old Staff Sgt. Adam Anthony Arndt, was ruled a suicide by the medical examiner. Police had believed that Arndt shot Michelle Lynne Miller, a senior, and then killed himself. Officers say both died of a single gunshot wound.

Miller was signed up to enter the Army Reserves after graduation. Arndt had been assigned to coordinate Miller’s entry into the Reserves. A native of Manitowoc, Wisc, he was deployed to Turkey from September 2009 to September 2010. Since January 2011, he had been detailed to a recruiting office in Columbia. His duties included visiting schools. Army recruiters are barred from having personal relationships with recruits.

Officers say their investigation into the incident has concluded.
