Arrest made in Farmerville murder

The suspect accused of murdering a man in Farmerville last April has been captured in Texas, according to the Union Parish Sheriff’s Office.

Bruce Causey, 49, who was a work release inmate working at Foster Farms in Farmerville, is accused of stabbing and killing co-worker Ketrick Calhoun on April 21, 2022.

Causey was arrested in Pearland, Texas, on New Year’s Eve after police responded to a domestic disturbance where he was in possession of a firearm.

Union Parish Sheriff Dusty Gates said Causey gave officers in Texas a false name before his true identity was learned through his fingerprints.

Sheriff Gates said Causey will have to face his firearm offense in Texas before extradition to Louisiana on second degree murder and aggravated escape charges.

Work release prisoners are allowed to go to their jobs during the day but must report back to the detention center each evening after completing their shifts.
