The two murdered men found bound and gagged in a pickup truck after golf pro Gene Siller was gunned down on his Georgia club knew their suspected killer through a drug trade, according to a report.
Bryan Rhoden — a 23-year-old rapper known as “B. Rod” — is accused of shooting Siller once in the head after he “witnessed an active crime taking place” at the Atlanta-area Pinetree Country Club he ran.
Police then found two other men — Henry Valdez, 46, and Paul Pierson, 76 — shot dead and stashed in the back of Pierson’s Dodge Ram 3500 pickup truck, which was abandoned on the course.
Police have insisted there is no known connection between the suspected triple killer and the golfer — but a friend of Valdez told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution that Rhoden knew the other two victims.
Valdez was a California-based cannabis “broker” who worked with a “very small circle of people he trusted,” including Rhoden,
