The motorist, who lives in the area, believed he was referring to Sidney teacher Sherry Arnold, who was confirmed dead Friday. Arnold was reported missing on Jan. 7 when she didn't return from a morning jog.
The woman told officers she told the man to wait while she got her cigarettes, then reached down and pulled out a gun, Thingvold told The Billings Gazette http://bit.ly/x1BY25
