Vital Statistics at Time of Disappearance
Details of Disappearance
On the afternoon of October 30, 1998, Kimberly Arrington left her home, telling her mother where she was going, and walked the short distance to the CVS Pharmacy on Forest Avenue in Montgomery to pick up some candy and soda. The 16-year-old never made it to the store. There were never any concrete leads, and no evidence that Kimberly ever made it to the CVS. No credible witnesses came forward, and there was no surveillance video from the store. Despite dozens of interviews with family, friends, classmates and city residents, no viable witnesses were found. Police canvassed the area from Arrington's house to the CVS store, searching for signs of struggle and belongings she may have dropped, with no success. Known sex offenders in the area were questioned, and police looked into rumors and speculation. Still, a suspect was never found.
Kimberly was in 10th grade at Jefferson Davis High School, had severe allergies and liked to stay inside. She wasn't involved with any man, and it wouldn't have been like her to run away from home. She enjoyed listening to music, dancing and learning computers at school, where she was well-behaved. Most people liked her, and she was very friendly towards everybody.
Kim Arrington's mother, who was ill, died in 2005.
