A suspect in a 2011 Jeffco homicide that had been on the FBI's Most Wanted list has turned himself in and is back in the U.S.

Edwin Ernesto Rivera Gracias, 29, is a suspect in the August 2011 slaying of Richard Limon, 69. The FBI said Gracias turned himself in voluntarily.

Gracias was transported from El Salvador by FBI agents in coordination with the Salvadoran government and the FBI's San Salvador legal attache office. He is currently in custody in Jefferson County.

Limon’s body was dumped along Lariat Loop Road on Lookout Mountain and was discovered by cyclists in August 2011. He had been bound with duct tape, beaten and stabbed multiple times.
