The warrant for the suspect charged with the murders of three individuals discovered on the 10th hole of Pinetree Country Club’s golf course on Saturday afternoon includes new charges about what authorities allege he did before the murders.
Bryan Anthony Rhoden, a 23-year-old Atlanta resident, was apprehended by the Southeast Regional Fugitive Task Force in Chamblee. He was asked to appear to the police station on new charges and was detained.
Golf pro Gene Siller was found shot to death on the green on Saturday, and two others, Henry Valdez, 46, of California, and Paul Pierson, 76, of Kansas, were found dead in the bed of a white Dodge Ram 3500 pickup truck teetering on the edge of a sand trap, according to Cobb County police.
Officials allege Rhoden kidnapped both Pierson, the truck’s owner, and Valdez, bound their wrists, legs, and lips with tape and forced them inside the truck’s covered beds, according to the warrant.
Siller was not a target of Rhoden, according to police, but he did witness the crime, which led to his death.
Three counts of murder, three counts of aggravated assault, and two counts of kidnapping were filed against Bryan Rhoden.
