A former gay-for-pay adult film star who worked for sites like Sean Cody, Cocksure, and Mormon Boyz has been sentenced to life in prison for murdering his rich older lover in the hopes of inheriting his fortune.
26-year-old David Enrique Meza appeared in several Sean Cody clips as “Francisco” and also went by the aliases Mario Romo, Rick Romo, and Gonzalez.

As The San Diego Tribune reports, he was convicted in May 2017 for killing 52-year-old Jake Clyde Meredino in Mexico in May 2015.
During a hearing in San Diego, California, Meza was sentenced on Monday to life in prison for the murder of his rich older lover.
He also received a concurrent sentence: twenty years in jail for “conspiracy to obstruct justice after the murder,” according to Str8UpGayPorn (site decidedly un-work-friendly).
According to reports, Meza took his partner to the side of a road and stabbed him 24 times, slashing his neck and dumping him in a ravine.
The men had been in some sort of relationship since 2013.
Meza would’ve inherited the Texan’s $3 million estate, and he was the only named beneficiary of a $275,000 oceanfront condo purchased the day before the murder.
Meza also had a pregnant fiancé, Taylor Langston. She was captured on video re-entering the US with Meza shortly after the murder.
The couple was arrested in December 2015 and claimed they’d been visiting their friend “Joe” in Tijuana. That alibi was proven false in court.
According to Attitude, the case was built solely on circumstantial evidence. No DNA evidence was found at the crime scene.
Meza’s lawyer argued it would’ve been difficult for the small-sized Meza to move Meredino’s body since the victim weighed about 310 pounds.
After his first alibi proved false, Meza claimed he’d invited his boyfriend to the murder scene to steal his stereo equipment, but then changed his mind and ran away on his bike.
On the second anniversary of Merendino’s death, and after a week of deliberation, jurors eventually found Meza guilty of murder and conspiracy to obstruct justice.
In a statement released at the time, Acting US Attorney Alana W. Robinson said, “David Meza took the life of a man who cared for him, lavished him with expensive gifts and who wanted to create a life with him.”
“On this day, the second anniversary of Jake Merendino’s death, we salute the jury for delivering justice to a greedy killer who will now have to answer for his cruelty.”
Taylor Marie Langston, Meza’s girlfriend, was charged with obstructing justice and sentenced to 21 months in federal prison after accepting a plea deal.
Unbelievable. This dumb guy blew the rest of his life by taking someone else’s out of greed and hunger for more money. Instead of working a job like everybody else. You have to wonder what would possess someone to murder another person like that. The fact that he’s a porn star and willing to have a sugar daddy already says a lot about him right there. Well looks like justice was served anyway as his life is now ruined and gone by that one action. He’ll be in jail until he dies. And he’s a young guy. Sad.
There are unfortunately a lot of dumb, desperate people in this world and in this particular case, truly evil. There are no winners here: the murdered victim, the murderer, the girlfriend accomplice, and the child who has these deplorables for biological parents.
All of these cases, where the wealthy older man is killed by his younger lover, have one thing in common: the younger lover identifies as straight. Take note rich men. Keep away from the straight ones!
The presence of a girlfriend (pregnant, no less) is also quite a prominent red flag.
The sugar daddy wasn’t aware his lover was leading a double life with a pregnant girlfriend on the side.
Friends of the murdered man said Meza seemed so easy going but the savagery of the killing shows how much rage he was holding inside.
This is one of the rare times that I agree that the correct sentence was handed out. He is only twenty-six years old which means his body his body hasn’t reached that thirty year old spread that we all go thru (you look in the mirror and notice that you are getting bigger every where, especially in your stomach and butt areas). He is going to spend the rest of his life cursing his porn past, the people who hooked him up with the first porn contact and himself for realizing that this guy loved him but he was unable to return the affection and could have worked and bought a condo himself. Once the kid starts growing it will get even worse. He won’t be there for the kids first steps, first words, first day of school, after school sports…..etc. Hey, this is what greed brought you. Was it really worth it?
How many Sean Cody models have been sentenced to prison now? Three?
Had they (Sean Cody) been around during his time I’m willing to bet Andrew Cunanan would have been one of their models too. lol lol He too was cute with an exotic look, nice lean swimmers cut body, a bottom, but mostly importantly a low-life drug addicted well kept twink who only slept with those who could take care of his needs. It seems he had all the qualifications needed to join their ranks.
Why can’t people just be adults. If Anna Nicole is your inspiration just get your chapstick and hope you outlive him.
Because in this guy’s warped mind, he had a pregnant girlfriend with his baby in the oven and so that sped up his timeline to getting at the sugar daddy’s fortune. He probably felt he didn’t have time to wait for this guy who was only in his 50’s to die.
@spacecadet……………its too bad that jackass couldn’t see that his lover (or to be more precise his meal ticket) would have no doubt been more than willing to finance a business or education to get him going in life so that he didnt be a total burden to everyone he encountered.
