KREX News Room
DENVER- A fugitive from Denver is now part of the FBI's 10 Most Wanted List.
Edwin Ernesto Rivera Gracias is wanted for his alleged involvement with the brutal murder of a family acquaintance in Jefferson County.
The 69-year-old victim was found beaten, stabbed and dumped on Lookout Mountain in August 2011.
Rivera Gracias is believed to be in El Salvador.
He is a member of the gang MS-13 and has ties to other gang members.
"We stand together all of us at every level of law enforcement here in Colorado and also nationally to urge the public if you see Rivera Gracias, if you have information about Mr. Rivera Gracias, please contact the FBI or local law enforcement if you actually see him physically," explained U.S. Attorney John Walsh.
The FBI is offering a reward of up to $100,000.
The last fugitive from Colorado to make the 10 Most Wanted List was serial killer Ted Bundy back in 1978. He was captured five days later.
