Bryan Anthony Rhoden Arrest
Cobb police Chief Tim Cox announced the arrest in a news conference on July 8th, 2021, and said, “We’d like to thank our citizens.” He said that tips helped the investigation. “His name came up within a few days of the investigation,” he said of Bryan Anthony Rhoden, 23, who was described as the “lone shooter.”
Siller, 41, was shot on the 10th hole of the golf course on Saturday, July 3, 2021. The motive isn’t clear.
Two other men were found shot to death “in the bed of a Ram 3500 pick-up truck located at the country club’s golf course,” reported 11Alive. One was identified as the truck’s owner, Paul Pierson, the television station reported. It’s not yet clear how any of it connects. The two deceased men were Henry Valdez, 46, of Anaheim, California, and Pierson, 76, of Topeka, Kansas, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
Rhoden is accused of three counts of murder, three counts of aggravated assault, and two counts of kidnapping, authorities said. The motive is not clear.
The Georgia State Golf Association tweeted, “All of us at the GSGA are deeply saddened by the tragic events that occurred earlier today at Pinetree CC. Our thoughts and prayers are with Gene Siller’s family and friends.”
Eugene Siller was described as a man who built community, who showed compassion, and who “loved everybody,” a friend told journalist Tori Cooper:
The Cobb County Sheriff’s Department Statement
The Cobb County Sheriff’s Department announced Rhoden’s arrest on its Facebook page, saying, “At around 5:30 p.m. Thursday, July 8, the Cobb County Sheriff’s Office Fugitive Unit and the U.S. Marshal’s Southeastern Regional Task Force, along with the Chamblee Police Department apprehended Bryan Rhoden in Chamblee, GA. He is a suspect in the golf course killings.”
“I’m not going to release any information relating to that,” the police chief said about the motive. However, according to AJC.com, authorities said previously they believe that Siller went to investigate a crime in progress when Rhoden drove on the golf course, as opposed to being targeted. He said he felt confident there was no connection between Siller and Rhoden.
A few hours after Siller’s murder, Chamblee police arrested Rhoden on DUI, driving a vehicle without insurance, and false identification, WSBT-TV reported. But he was released on bail on Tuesday, July 6, 2021.
The Georgia PGA wrote in a news release, “As many of you already know, tragedy has stricken the Georgia Golf Family with the passing of PGA member, Gene Siller. Gene was serving as the Director of Golf at Pinetree Country Club in Kennesaw, GA.”
