Serial Killer Raul Meza Jr. Arrested as Police Fear There Are More Victims

AUSTIN, TEXAS – Suspected serial killer Raul Meza Jr. made a chilling call to the police last May, admitting, “I think you are looking for me,” leading to his arrest for multiple murders in the state of Texas. Meza, 63, is currently in jail for the alleged strangulation of Gloria Lofton, 65, in 2019, and the capital murder of former probation officer Jesse Fraga, 80, in 2023. Law enforcement suspects that these may only be a few of his many victims.

Authorities in Austin are investigating Meza’s alleged killing spree, which they believe may have involved as many as 10 other homicides. Former Austin Police Sergeant Bruce Mills lamented, “Here’s a serial killer that justice was not served,” expressing the frustration of law enforcement with the unresolved cases.

Meza has a troubling criminal history that dates back to 1982, when he sexually assaulted and strangled an 8-year-old girl. He has served time in prison and violated parole multiple times. Law enforcement has issued a search warrant for his Google account, seeking information to link him to additional cold case homicides and other unsolved murders in Texas, including two in San Antonio.

One of the speculated victims of Meza is Nicole Coleman, a college student whose naked body was found in a wooded area of Austin in 2018. Her unsolved homicide has haunted the city for years. The possibility that her killer may still be at large raises concerns for those in the area.

This disturbing case illustrates the impact of unresolved violent crimes on communities, leaving families in a state of perpetual fear and uncertainty. The thorough investigation into Meza’s alleged killing spree is crucial in bringing closure to the families of the victims and ensuring justice is served.
