Missing & Murdered Montana Teacher Sherry Arnold Choked to Death and Buried in Random Abduction by Suspects Michael Spell & Lester Waters


The first details are being released regarding the abduction of missing and now murdered Montana school teacher Sherry Arnold. According to Richland County prosecutor Mike Weber, Arnold’s abduction was a random act of violence by two drugged up suspects who choked her to death and then buried the 43 year old on a farmstead outside of Williston, North Dakota. Sherry Arnold went missing on January 7, 2012 when she went for a jog.

Prosecutors are disclosing the first details of what they believe happened to a Montana School teacher who was allegedly choked to death and buried, reporting she was the victim of a crack-fueled and seemingly random abduction.

An affidavit filed Friday by Richland County prosecutor Mike Weber is based largely on the alleged confession of Michael Spell, a suspect in the case who told FBI investigators that he felt guilty when he saw “missing” posters for 43-year-old Sherry Arnold after helping bury her body on a farmstead outside of Williston, N.D., about 45 miles from where she was abducted.

22 year old Michael Spell and 47 year old Lester Waters, 47, both suspects in the death of Sherry Arnold,  are scheduled to appear in Montana district court February 28 on charges of aggravated kidnapping. Both Colorado residents are being held on $2.5 million bail each.

According to the affidavit filed by the Richland County prosecutor, crack cocaine was at the root of this random abduction and senseless act of violence.

After smoking crack cocaine during the entire trip, Waters allegedly told Spell that the drug “brought the devil out in him” and began talking about kidnapping and killing a female, the affidavit states.

After they spotted Arnold, Spell alleges that Waters told him to “grab the lady” and pull her into their Ford Explorer as she jogged by.

“Spell said Waters got into the back seat with the female and `choked her out,”‘ the affidavit states. That night, after dropping Arnold’s body in a rural area of North Dakota, the affidavit says Waters bought a shovel at a Walmart in Williston. The pair later buried Arnold in a 2- to 3-feet-deep hole on an old farmstead.

Waters returned the shovel to Walmart three days later, the affidavit says.

To all those who want to legalize drugs, take a good read and think again.

      Every state needs to pass a law requiring anyone convicted in dealing drugs to be immediately given a lethal dose of the drug they were dealing.

      Those that are repeatedly arrested and convicted for use of drugs should be dispatched to GOD’s hands on the third conviction.

      #1 – How can we prosecute drug dealers as you say when we let pedophiles and rapists roam free? I agree that prosecution is necessary, but it should be prosecution with common sense and mandatory extensive counseling. I think it’s crazy when someone selling pot is in prison for 30 years and a pedophile, rapist or someone selling crack is out in 10 years. It’s as if the greater the evil, the lesser the punishment. Lester Waters took the easy way out. What a coward!

      No. 1 – Yeah, let’s do that. Then we can all start wearing turbans and wiping our butts with our hands.

      No. 2 – Very reasonable and rational argument, Pa Mom.
