Lueras is known to frequent the Dallas area and also has ties to Hurst, Euless, and Bedford areas, authorities said.
A Facebook page for Lueras reveals he is from Perris, California, and now lives in Dallas.
A person by the same name and age of Lueras, the only victim identified so far, previously pled guilty to possession of methamphetamine and theft over $1,500 in neighboring Dallas County, according to court records.
He was also charged with home burglary and fraudulent use of identifying information.
‘Identifying the perpetrators and suspects of this triple murder is the primary goal of this investigation,’ police said.
