Credit card of deceased Claremonter used at Oklahoma City ATM

A credit card belonging to a Claremont resident, who was killed in Mexico, was recently used in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma.

The Oklahoma City Police Department sent out the information via Twitter on May 3, noting that the man, whose image was captured by a security camera, was seen using a card belonging to Taylor Meyer at an ATM. A time stamp notes the images were captured on December 7, 2018 just before 4:48 p.m., and police said the man was driving a silver SUV.

Sgt. Gary Knight of the Oklahoma City Police Department told the COURIER that not much more information was available.

“We don’t know if that’s the person who had anything to do with the death, but we do want to get them identified,” Sgt. Knight said.

In one picture, another person could be seen in the passenger seat.

Mr. Meyer, 27, was killed on November 9 while he was in Playa del Carmen, Mexico celebrating a friend’s birthday. His body was found in a plaza far from the resort where he was staying with his friends.

One person, only identified at “Hilario N.,” was arrested on suspicion of murder on November 12, according to Riviera Maya News, a local English-language news site.

The Meyer family was unavailable for comment by press time.
