Texas Serial Killer Suspect a ‘Classic Pedophile’

Print More


A man accused of killing three Dallas-area girls in the 1980s was a classic pedophile who stalked children by befriending their parents, according to the Dallas Morning News.

Texas authorities believe David Elliott Penton, 45, is responsible for the slayings of Christi Lynn Meeks, 5, of Mesquite; Christie Diane Proctor, 9, of Dallas; and Roxann Hope Reyes, 4, of Garland. Plano police said Wednesday that Mr. Penton was charged in those cases, and the Collin County district attorney’s office said it would seek indictments against him.

Penton is imprisoned in Ohio on a life sentence in the 1988 murder of a 9-year-old girl there.
