ROCHESTER, Minn. – Two weeks after Brandon Arndt was found shot to death inside a trailer, his mother issued an emotional statement and talked about the selfless nature of her son.
“Whoever did this to Brandon will never know how much you have taken from so many,” Norma Hanson said.
The statement from Hanson, the mother of Arndt, urged for someone to come forward as the search for his killer continues.
Police released an image of Arndt, 38, and announced Monday that a reward of up to $5,000 is being offered for information that leads to the arrest and conviction of the person(s) responsible.
“I am totally devastated at the loss of my only son Brandon,” Hanson said. “Brandon always thought of others before himself. I am amazed at the number of people Brandon touched in his short 38 years.
“Brandon had many rough years until he received the gift of a new kidney. Brandon was looking forward to a new lease on life.”
Hanson urged anyone who knows anything about the murder to come forward.
“If anyone has any information on Brandon’s murder, please, please come forward,” she said.
Anyone with information is asked to call lead investigator Jean Valere at 507-328-6800 or Crimestoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS.
