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.
