(NEW YORK) — One of the FBI’s most wanted fugitives has been captured in Nicaragua.
Juan Elias Garcia, described by one official as an “enthusiastic murderer,” was taken into custody Friday, a law enforcement source tells ABC News.
Garcia was just added to the FBI’s “Most Wanted” list earlier this week.
There was a $100,000 reward for his capture.
Garcia was wanted for the murders of his young girlfriend and her toddler son on Long Island in 2010.
