El Chapo ‘ The worlds most famous Mexican drug lord escapes again from the Maximum security prison in Mexico on Sunday. This breach has created a havoc in the world and the Mexican official are on the Greatest Manhunt.
El Chapo’s full name is Joaquin Guzman Loera.
For the past year and a half, the leader(‘El Chapo’) of the Sinaloa cartel had been incarcerated in the Altiplano, a federal facility set amid farmland west of the capital that holds the top captured drug bosses and has been described as the country’s most impenetrable prison.
The son of a poor farmer, Guzman was born in Sinaloa and entered the local drug economy in the 1970s, after dropping out of school.
He rose gradually within the Sinaloa cartel, and in the early 1990s took control.
In 1993, Guzman was arrested in Guatemala, and extradited to Mexico, where he was put in a maximum security prison. He continued to run the organization behind bars while maintaining a comfortable lifestyle, surrounded by associates and paid-off guards.
In January 2001, some of them helped him slip out of the prison while hidden in a laundry cart.
As one of the world’s most sought-after fugitives, Guzman amassed even more power, taking over trade routes in South America and across the globe.
He protected himself within a network of loyal workers, paid-off informers and corrupt officials.
Despite his secrecy, however, Guzman enjoyed living the high life, including lavish dinners and a coterie of mistresses and prostitutes. He’s reportedly been married multiple times, his current wife being a former teenage beauty queen with American citizenship.
He has been caught many times and has also made last minute escapes and he is gone again.
