The Austin police claimed a man reached them and admitted to killing two people, which led authorities to investigate his possible involvement in the 10 other murder incidents.
The Austin police Said The Murderer Of The Two Victims Confessed His Crimes
On May 24, it was reported that 62 years old Raul Meza Jr, confessed his crimes to the Austin police via phone call and claiming that he murder his roommate Jesse Fraga 80-year-old, and involved himself in the 2019 murder case of Gloria Lofton, according to Austin Police Department officials at a Thursday news conference.
Tuesday, Meza is detained following a five-day manhunt on four charges, including capital murder, with a $1 million bond, according to court records. Police said that when they arrested Meza they discovered that in his bag it contained duct tape, zip ties, and a handgun withholding additional rounds.
Det. Patrick Reed was the one who answered Meza’s initial call, he said that according to Meza that he was eagerly prepared to kill anyone again and he was looking forward to it. Reed also spoke with Meza again once he was detained.
In the call with Meza, Reed also said that he was claiming to state that “you are looking for me.” Moreover, Meza describes his relationship with Jesse Fraga and detailed how he murdered Fraga, including details that had not yet been released to the public.
CNN has reached out to Meza’s court-appointed lawyer for any comment.
Austin Police Said Raul Meza Jr. Might Be The Involved With To Other More Homicides
Austin police said they are still under investigation and claiming that Meza can be involved in the other additional homicides because Austin Police said that around eight and 10 cases that kind of fit the similar circumstances that they are looking for.
According to Austin police that Meza was facing a murder charge of an 8-year-old girl and served about 11 years of a 30-year sentence way back in 1982.
Bruce Mills, who was the investigator of the Meza case in 1982 and is now Austin’s assistant interim city manager, said he thought Meza should have served more time for the 1982 killing.
Mills said that Justice was not served when Meza commits capital murder, pleads to murder, is released 11 years later but still killed several people that they don’t even know. Mills ended his statements by claiming that there was a travesty of justice totally in Meza’s case.
