Two other victims, Paul Pierson and Henry Valdez, were found shot dead in the bed of a pickup truck that had been driven onto the green of the private course near Kennesaw State University.

Arrest warrants obtained by Channel 2 Action News have been issued for Justin Caleb Pruitt for kidnapping in connection with the murders.

Bryan Rhoden, 23, was arrested days after the bodies were found for a similar kidnapping as well as murder.


According to the warrants, Pruitt was a co-conspirator with Rhoden and unwillingly participated in binding Pierson and Valdez with duct tape and zip ties near the warehouse on Jonesboro Road. He then helped them drive them to the country club, where Rhoden shot the two men in the truck as well as Siller, who was on the golf course at the time, according to police.
