Message from Rick
Caylor regarding his parents murderer
I am Rick Caylor, the youngest son of
John and Mildred Caylor who were robbed
and murdered 5 1/2 years ago in their
home and Bible Store in Raytown, MO.
The Missouri Western District Appeals
court overturned the Guilty convictions
of Kellen McKinney and ordered a new
trial, as they say the Attempted Escape
Conviction was improperly adjoined with
the Robbery and Murder Convictions.
The case was then appealed to the
Missouri Supreme Court and they agreed
to hear the appeal.
The hearing is now set for Tuesday, May
18th and is currently 2nd on the docket
The Supreme Court is offering live audio
coverage of its oral arguments at
. The live audio link will work only
during oral arguments.
If you are experiencing difficulty in
accessing the arguments, please call the
Help Desk at (888) 541-4894. Archives of
each day's arguments from September 2007
forward will be available on that day's
"cases scheduled" page, below. Archives
of previous arguments are available
through the Missourinet, a statewide
radio network, on its Web site,
I will be making the trip to Jefferson
City to be present at the hearing to
show my support for the prosecuting
attorney. I understand that the Jackson
County Prosecutor that tried the
original case, Tammy Dickenson, will
also be present at the hearing.
We believe that there were already
precedents that allowed for the cases to
be adjoined and that there is a good
chance that the original Guilty verdicts
will be upheld by the Supreme court.
If a new trial is ordered, the evidence
was over whelming and I would expect a
jury would find McKinney guilty again as
Just doing what I can to help keep the
memories of Mom and Dad alive until this
case if finally resolved.
