Man murdered in Worth County

September 12, 2002

Worth County-  58-year-old Billy Caulder was found early Thursday morning lying on the couch with a bullet in the top of his head.Caulder's other roomate says she returned home from a quick trip to the store at 4:30 a.m. and made the discovery.

GBI agents and Worth County deputies searched the Youngblood Road mobile home and area around it for clues this morning. They also questioned the two people living in Caulder's home, including the man who apparently slept through a shooting.

"He's a hard sleeper," John Booth said. "His workers often have to come over and turn the matress over to get him up in the morning."

Caulder was retired and had lived in the trailer for many years. A gun was found inside the home. Investigators are doing tests to see if it's the murder weapon. They have not ruled out robbery as a possible motive for the murder.
