In 2019, Meza was living next to Gloria Lofton, a 66-year-old woman. Lofton was killed, but Austin police ruled her death to be “undetermined.”
In 2020, a DNA profile from the scene matched Meza, but authorities never charged him in the case. In his recent call to police, he confessed to murdering Lofton in 2019.
In all, CNN reported, police said Meza admitted to murdering two people — but detectives are investigating the possibility he may be responsible for as many as a dozen killings in total.
