WASHINGTON - The FBI has a new name on its list of most-wanted fugitives.

It's Mexican drug kingpin Rafael Caro-Quintero, who was mistakenly released from a Mexican prison in 2013 while serving a 40-year sentence for the kidnapping and murder of a DEA agent.

Authorities are also increasing the reward for his capture to $20 million.

Caro-Quintero was convicted in the 1985 kidnapping and murder of DEA Special Agent Enrique "Kiki" Camarena Salaza. Camarena was a former Calexico, Calif. police officer who had worked for the DEA.

Caro-Quintero has controlled the Sinaloa Cartel along with Ismael "El Mayo" Zambada Garcia since the arrest of Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman.

Authorities say it's the first time that a suspect sought by the DEA has been added to the FBI's list.
