The FBI is offering $1 million for information leading to the arrests of four of the accused fugitives. Holder said in a statement that the government "we will stop at nothing to bring those responsible for his murder to justice."

U.S. Attorney Laura Duffy said at a press conference that the "atmospherics" surrounding the Terry case "have not distracted from the efforts of this prosecution team."

In a statement, Terry family attorney Patrick McGroder said that the developments means that the criminal prosecution of Brian Terry's killers is moving forward.

"However, the accountability aspect of Operation Fast and Furious, the flawed ATF/DOJ gun trafficking investigation that put weapons into the hands of the men that killed Brian Terry, remains stalled," McGroder said. "The Terry family once again asks that the Attorney General and the Department of Justice comply with the request for documents made by the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee so that all Americans can know who approved of the operation in order that those individuals can be held accountable for their decisions."

Rep. Darrell Issa (R-CA), chairman of the House Oversight Committee, told Fox News that the timing of the unsealing of the indictment is politically motivated.

"It's clear the timing has to do with the House of Representatives holding Eric Holder in contempt for not turning over information," Issa said. "Again, I applaud the fact that we are going public and we are trying to make it clear that these people are among Mexico's most wanted. But at the same time, the timing is very dubious."
