DENVER (AP) -- A suspected member of a notorious Salvadoran gang wanted for a Colorado slaying is now one of the FBI's "Ten Most Wanted Fugitives."

Edwin Ernesto Rivera Gracias was added to the list Thursday. He's wanted in Jefferson County for the Aug. 17, 2011 stabbing death of 69-year-old Richard Limon of Denver, a family acquaintance of his girlfriend.

Three other suspects have already been apprehended.

Rivera Gracias is suspected of being a member of the Mara Salvatrucha gang, or MS-13, with ties to other gang members in Colorado, Los Angeles and El Salvador. He is believed to be hiding in El Salvador. The FBI is offering a $100,000 reward for information leading to his arrest.

The vacancy on list was created when Joe Luis Saenz, a murder suspect, was captured in November.
