KEVIN CAYLOR NAMED MURRAY COUNTY EMPLOYEE OF THE MONTH
September 6, 2016 (Chatsworth) – District Attorney’s Office Investigator Kevin Caylor was today named Murray County employee of the month by Sole Commissioner Brittany Pittman. Caylor, who worked for the Murray County Sheriff’s Department for 8 years before joining the District Attorney’s Office in 2001, serves as the sole investigator for the District Attorney’s Chatsworth offices and specializes in Domestic Violence investigations. Caylor was nominated for his work on the Rise Above Recovery investigation and prosecution in 2015 and 2016 which ultimately resulted in the conviction of Jeffery Dewayne Bully for rape, aggravated sodomy, sexual assault of a probationer, and sexual battery.
Bully, who opened and operated a fraudulent substance abuse treatment program, used his position of authority to sexually assault numerous women most of whom had been sent to his facility by judges around the state as a condition of probation. Bully is now serving three consecutive life sentences without the possibility of parole plus 50 years for his crimes. Caylor not only located Bully hiding in Oklahoma after the FBI had given up the search, but also located and persuaded 12 victims to come to court and testify against Bully even though many of these women were still on probation and some were facing active probation warrants and arrest if they appeared in the courtroom.
According to his employer, District Attorney Bert Poston, “Kevin is one of those people who always goes above and beyond what is asked of him and while Kevin would be the first to say that it was a team effort, the Bully prosecution would not have happened and would not have been successful without his tireless effort in locating the offender and securing the attendance of the victims as witnesses for the State.”
Kevin Caylor accepts the Murray County Employee of the Month Award from Sole Commissioner Brittany Pittman at the Murray County Courthouse Annex.
