A suspect in a 2011 slaying in Jeffco has been placed on the FBI’s 10 Most Wanted List.

Edwin Ernesto Rivera Gracias, 29, is a suspect in the slaying of Richard Limon, 69, in August 2011. Limon’s body was dumped along Lariat Loop Road on Lookout Mountain and was discovered by cyclists. He had been bound with duct tape, beaten and stabbed multiple times.

The FBI believes Gracias has fled to his native El Salvador, and may be using a Salvadoran identification card with the name Edwin Rivera. According to the FBI, he is a member of the La Mara Salvatrucha gang, also known as MS-13, which is based in El Salvador and Los Angeles and is active in 42 states, including Colorado.

Gracias has a tattoo of “LA” on his right forearm, “Maria” on his left chest, “Nena” on his left hand, “El Salvador” down the back of his right arm, “503” down the back of his left arm, and “MS 13” across his back.
He is 5-foot-10, weighs 170 pounds and has no facial hair or glasses.

The FBI considers Gracias armed and dangerous and believes he might try to sneak back into the country under an alias.

Anyone with information about the whereabouts of Gracias should call the Jefferson County sheriff’s tip line at 303-271-5612.
