Meechaiel Khalil Criner

The recent case of 17-year-old Meechaiel Khalil Criner, who was arrested by Austin police April 7 and charged with the murder of 18-year-old University of Texas student Haruka Weiser, has brought to light severe insufficiencies in the Child Protective Service’s foster care program in Central Texas.

The Killeen Police Department verified Criner ran away from a foster facility in Killeen on March 24, less than two weeks before he was arrested on the charge. KPD said they would not release Criner’s runaway report citing juvenile confidentiality laws and an ongoing investigation as police are trying to retrace Criner’s steps in the months and weeks he spent in Killeen and Austin.
