A Chicago gang member placed on the FBI’s “Ten Most Wanted Fugitives” list in the 2009 death of a 15-year-old boy has been arrested in Mexico.

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.

Four of the men involved in the killing were convicted, but Macedo had fled arrest.

Thomas Martens, who spent 31 years as an FBI agent, and his 33-year-old daughter, Molly Corbett, were sentenced to 20-25 years in prison on charges of second-degree murder in the death of Jason Corbett, the Washington Post reports

But that story unraveled, and the jury didn’t buy it.
