Juan Elias Garcia, wanted for the execution-style murder of a 19-year-old Vanessa Argueta and her 2-year-old son Diego Torres, has been named to the Ten Most Wanted Fugitives list.
On February 4, 2010, Garcia invited Argueta to dinner but instead lured her and her son into the woods. Along with two other MS-13 members, he executed her with two shots from a handgun while her son looked on. The gun was then turned on the child. The first shot knocked him to the ground but did not kill him. The boy got up and clutched at Garcia’s leg, but another gang member shot again and killed him.
