Luis Macedo, 29, was on the run after being charged with beating, shooting and setting on fire Alex Arellano, who was on his way to a birthday party.

When Macedo was added to the Most Wanted list in May 2016, authorities believed he had fled the Chicago area and was living in Mexico or the southeastern U.S., according to an FBI news release.

Macedo is accused of leading a group of Latin King gang members who began to beat Arellano with a baseball bat for refusing to show the symbol of the Latin Kings. After briefly fleeing, Arellano was beat again and shot in the head.

Walter Yovany Gomez has been added to the FBI’s 10 Most Wanted Fugitives list after fleeing authorities for six years on charges of murder.

Gomez is accused of murder in connection to the May 2011 killing of Julio Matute. Authorities said the motive was proving himself capable of being a full member of Mara Salvatrucha, an international street gang better known as MS-13.

Acting U.S. Attorney William E. Fitzpatrick described the MS-13 as “one of the most vicious and violent street gangs in the United States.”

“They kill rival gang members, they kill innocent civilians,” he said.

Man Charged with 1983 Murder at U. of Texas Added to FBI’s 10 Most Wanted List

A Texas man who fled after being charged with the 1983 murder of a 22-year-old woman has been added to the FBI’s Ten Most Wanted Fugitives list, with the offer of a $100,000 reward for information that leads to his capture.

Robert Francis Van Wisse was a 19-year-old college student when authorities say he sexually assaulted and strangled a janitor at the University of Texas at Austin.

The victim was married and had a 1-year-old daughter.

“No matter how much time has passed,” said Special Agent Justin Noble, a member of the FBI’s Central Texas Violent Crimes Task Force in Austin who is investigating the case, “it’s important that we finally get justice for the victim and her family.”

Van Wisse was initially a suspect, but the case went cold “because DNA and other tests were not as sophisticated then as they are today,” Noble said.

In the early 1990s, the Austin Police Department submitted crime scene evidence for DNA tests, and “the results pointed directly to Van Wisse,”Noble said.

Van Wisse fled when he learned he was a suspect. He was charged with capital murder in 1996.

“He was a college student whose parents were both professionals,” Noble said. “He grew up going to the best schools and living in the nicest neighborhood. He had the future in front of him,” Noble added, “and yet it appears he murdered a young woman making minimum wage trying to support her family and young child.”

Saturday marks the 60th anniversary of the FBI’s famous and wildly successful Ten Most Wanted Fugitive program, which has helped capture hundreds of suspects since its inception.

The Imperial Valley News reports that the program’s roots reach back to 1949, when a reporter for the International News Service wrote a story based on his request for a list of the FBI’s “toughest guys.” The FBI handed hi ma list of 10 fugitives, and the story was a sensation.

On March 14, 1950, then-Director J. Edgar Hoover created the Ten Most Wanted Fugitives program.

Since then, 473 of the 503 ho appeared on the list were apprehended to located.

Imperial Valley News wrote:

As the nature of crime and FBI priorities has evolved over the years, the makeup of the Top Ten list has also changed. While the list began by featuring bank robbers and murder suspects fleeing state jurisdiction, it has evolved into a tool to search for major organized crime figures, cyber criminals, child predators, and white-collar criminals. The list also reflects the international scope of crime which emphasizes the importance of strong global partnerships in the search for violent criminals who know no boundaries and pose a significant danger to all.

A Texas man accused of murdering his two daughters in 2008 was added to the FBI’s 10 most wanted list, and a reward leading to his arrest has increased as part of an effort to regenerate interest in the largely dormant case, Fox News reports. 

Prosecutors said Yaser Said, an Egyptian national, shot his daughters, ages 17 and 18, after becoming incensed with their increasingly Western lifestyles. They were raised in a Muslim family.

“Every time this case is pushed into the national spotlight we receive information,” FBI spokeswoman Katherine Chaumont said.

Family members expressed relief.

“I having been hoping for something like this for the past seven years,” Gail Gertrell, an aunt of the girls, told FoxNews.com. “For the sake of Sarah and Amina.”
