A suspect has been charged inwho killed pro golfer Gene Siller on Saturday, officials said Thursday. Bryan Anthony Rhoden faces three counts of murder, three counts of aggravated assault and two counts of kidnapping and is believed to be the lone shooter.
Many of the details surrounding the case are unclear. Police said earlier they found Siller’s body on the green of the 10th hole at Pinetree Country Club in Kennesaw, Georgia, with a gunshot wound to the head and found the bodies of two other men who were shot in a white Dodge Ram 3500 pick -up truck on the golf course.
The other two men were identified as Paul Pierson and Henry Valdez.
During Thursday’s press conference, officials did not offer further details as to why the crime occurred – but police said earlier that Siller was shot after he “happened after an ongoing crime.”
“It does not appear that he was in any way targeted, but rather was killed because he witnessed an active crime that took place,” authorities said Tuesday.
Police also said the two dead men in the truck did not appear to have any connection to the place where the crime was committed.
Cobb County Police Chief Tim Cox praised the detectives who worked to apprehend Rhoden.
“We have literally detectives who have been working around the clock, and some have literally been sleeping in their offices since July 3, trying to clear up this matter,” Cox said.
