Brenda Delgado has been added to the FBI's Ten Most Wanted Fugitives list, and officials are offering a $100,000 reward for information leading to the arrest of the woman police say masterminded the September murder of a Dallas dentist.

Delgado, a naturalized U.S. citizen who was born in Mexico, is currently the only woman on the FBI's Ten Most Wanted list.

"On Sept. 2, 2015, a prominent 35-year-old dentist was shot to death in the parking garage of her apartment complex," the FBI description reads. "Delgado allegedly orchestrated the murder-for-hire plot. It is believed she was jealous because the victim was dating Delgado's ex-boyfriend and had recently been introduced to his parents. Delgado has ties to Texas and Mexico."

Two of Delgado's alleged accomplices have already been arrested: uspected gunman Kristopher Love is accused of shooting Dr. Kendra Hatcher in the parking garage of her apartment building, while Crystal Cortes is believed to have driven the getaway car, WFAA.com reported.

Cortes reportedly told authorities that Delgado agreed to pay her $500 to drive Love to Hatcher's apartment complex to rob her, The Dallas Morning News reported last year.

"Brenda Delgado was able to effectively manipulate everyone she involved in her calculated scheme," Thomas M. Class, Sr., special agent in charge of the FBI's Dallas division, said in a statement.

"Although she didn't pull the trigger herself, she is still responsible for the murder and through international publicity and a significant reward offering, we intend to find her and to bring her to justice," Class continued.

Delgado, who is believed to be living in Mexico now, reportedly told one of her co-conspirators that she had connections "with a cartel and could provide him with a steady source of drugs if he carried out the murder," according to the FBI statement.

The Mexican Consul General Sergio Hayakawa told WFAA-TV that there is an Interpol warrant for Delgado, but added that since she was born in Mexico, she is considered a citizen and the country would not extradite her unless there was an agreement stating prosecutors would not seek the death penalty.

"Because our constitution doesn't have the capital murder or death penalty, our government asks for the U.S. government put in writing that they are not looking for the death penalty," Hayakawa said.
