Most Wanted FBI Fugitive Returns to U.S. for Prosecution

March 28, 2013  | 

A known MS-13 gang member accused of brutally killing his girlfriend's stepfather returned to the United States to face charges after journalists in El Salvador tracked him down, reports the Los Angeles Times.

Edwin Ernesto Rivera Gracias, added to the FBI's Ten Most Wanted Fugitives list earlier this month, is accused of murdering 69-year-old Richard Limon as revenge for raping his girlfriend. After Rivera Gracias fled to El Salvador, the FBI offered a $100,000 reward for his capture.

Limon had allegedly molested Nena Moya, now 19, and raped her mother, Tina Moya on two occasions. Tina Moya supposedly challenged Rivera Gracias' manhood if he didn't kill Limon.

According to ABC-7 in Denver, Tina Moya was sentenced to 36 years in prison on March 20 after pleading guilty to involvement in the murder; Nunez-Soto pleaded guilty and was sentenced to 48 years in prison on Oct. 30; Nena Moya pleaded guilty to accessory to first-degree murder and was sentenced to two years in the state's Division of Youth Corrections.
