Frederick County teen fatally shot: Sketch of one suspect released

Sketch of man wanted for questioning in shooting death of Rhett Goldizen of Frederick County.

Two men wanted for questioning remain at large

By Joe Beck

Frederick County authorities released a sketch Friday of one of two suspects wanted in the fatal shooting of 17-year old Rhett Goldizen on Oct. 18 at his home in the 200 block of Monastery Ridge.

The sketch was accompanied by descriptions of the suspects that added more detail since the investigation began into Goldizen's death.

Sheriff's Office officials say Goldizen died as his father, Steve Goldizen, exchanged gunfire with at least one of two men who were outside the door of the Goldizen house. Both suspects remain at large.

The new descriptions given of the suspects list one of them as 5 feet 8 inches or shorter and in his early or mid-20s. He is described as having a medium build and wearing a camouflage baseball-style hat, brown camouflage waist-length jacket, camouflage pants or blue jeans, a full beard and mustache, and dark work boots.

The second suspect is described as about 6 feet tall, possibly wearing layered upper garments, including an outer garment that was camouflage or partially camouflage. The suspect has brown to black hair over the ears, a sparse and thin beard, and well-kept blue jean pants. He was wearing dark, Timberland-style work boots with an upper garment that may have been some type of sweater texture, according to the sheriff's office. Investigators also said he was wearing a dark beanie or toboggan-style hat and has a thin nose that lacks definition.

Authorities say they believe the suspects were driving an SUV with headlights on, big mud-type tires and a back more rounded than squared with long, thin taillights.

Sheriff's Capt. Allen Sibert said he had no new information to report on the crime. He said the sheriff's office is still awaiting the results from ballistics tests to determine who fired the shot that killed Rhett Goldizen.

Sibert said anyone with more information about the crime should call Investigator K.C. Bohrer at the sheriff's office, 662-6168 or Crime Solvers at 665-8477.
