A suspected serial killer who may have murdered 13 people handed himself into police in Austin, Texas last week – calling them and saying: ‘I think you are looking for me.’
Raul Meza Jr, 62, handed himself in on May 24 and on Tuesday was charged with two murders: one in 2019, and one on May 20.
Meza, who began his violent crimes in 1975 and served multiple prison sentences, was described by Deputy U.S. Marshall Brandon Filla as ‘the worst of the worst.’
Meza’s alleged crimes began as a teenager.
Here’s a serial killer that justice was not served. It was a travesty of justice,’ said Interim Assistant City Manager Bruce Mills, who was also the primary investigator on the 1982 case where Meza was convicted of murdering 8-year-old Kendra Page.
‘We don’t know how many more people he killed or would have killed.’
On New Year’s Eve in 1975, Meza and three other teenagers robbed a convenience store near St. Edward’s University in Austin. Meza shot Derly Ramirez, the store attendant, in the back – leaving him paralyzed.
He was convicted, aged 15, of aggravated robbery in 1976 and sentenced to 20 years in prison, but was released on parole in 1981.
Less than a year after being released, Meza struck again.
On January 3, 1982, he strangled and sexually assaulted eight-year-old Kendra Page while she was riding her bike near Langford Elementary School.
The little girl’s body was found naked near a trash bin at the school.
