After just one day on the FBI’s Ten Most Wanted List, Juan Elias Garcia was arrested in Nicaragua.

Garcia, whom the bureau described as an “enthusiastic murderer,” surrendered Thursday and is expected to appear in court in New York today, CNN reports.

Garcia had a $100,000 reward on his head and is an alleged member of the violent MS-13 gang.

“The pressure generated by this publicity was too much for Garcia to bear, resulting in his surrender and return to the United States,” George Venizelos, FBI assistant director in charge of the New York field office, said in a statement.

A man accused of killing a New York mom and her toddler execution-style in 2010 is the latest fugitive to be added to the FBI’s Ten Most Wanted list, CNN reports.

The FBI is offering a $100,000 reward for the arrest of Juan Elias Garcia, whom the FBI refers to as an “enthusiastic murderer.”

“Garcia’s callous disregard for human life resulted in the senseless murder of a young mother and her helpless 2-year-old son,” said George Venizelos, assistant director in charge of the FBI’s New York Field Office, on the agency’s website.

Garcia, who is believed to be hiring in El Salvador, is an alleged member of the violent MS-13, or Mara Salvatrucha, gang.

Twelve years after Robert Fisher slaughtered his family and burned them in his Arizona home, the FBI is still searching, KTVK-3TV in Phoenix reports.

Fisher is one of the FBI’s Ten Most Wanted fugitives, and he has eluded capture ever since the crime.

“We continue to believe he is alive,” said Mark Hoffman, Supervisory Special Agent with the FBI.

Hoffman said Fisher will remain on the list until he is captured or dead.

“He has ties to Arizona, New Mexico and Florida,” Hoffman told KTVK-3TV. “We look at all possibilities he will not be taken off the top ten until we have definitive proof either he is alive and we captured him or he is dead, we’ll continue to look.”

 With the arrest of Jose “Joe” Luis Saenz from the FBI’s ‘Ten Most Wanted’ List, federal authorities will begin searching for a new name to add to the infamous list, ABC News reports.

Special Agent Scott Garriola, a part of the Los Angeles team that helped arrest Saenz, said “there’s always a sense of accomplishment” in apprehending someone from the most wanted list, ABC News reported.

To replace Saenz, the FBI will accept submissions from all 56 field offices.

The top offenders make the list for “violent crimes, cyber crimes, drug trafficking, crimes against children and international money laundering schemes,” ABC News wrote.

The list is effective because of the media attention it receives. More than a quarter of the criminals on the list get captured, according to ABC News.
