NOTORIOUS Drug Lord Joaquin â€˜El Chapoâ€™ Guzman Escapes From Prison AgainBy Bobricky 07:42 Mon, 13 Jul 2015 Comments
Joaquin â€˜El Chapoâ€™ Guzman has escaped from prison
again, leaving Mexico in a state of emergency, CNN
In a press conference Sunday morning, Mexico National
Security spokesman Monte Alejandro Rubido GarcÃa
confirmed the drug lordâ€™s escape. GarcÃa explained to
reporters how Chapo created a tunnel in his ventilated cell
at the Altiplano maximum security prison. The tunnel was
a mile long and was well lit, raising suspicions that Chapo
received outside assistance in plotting his escape.
Chapo escaped prison once before in 2001 from a high-
security prison in a laundry cart and was found 13 years
later on a Mexican beach resort. During his trial in 2014,
the kingpin stated he was a working farmer and had no
recollection about his major drug empire.
As head of the most deadly drug trafficking operations,
Chapoâ€™s Sinaloa cartel is reportedly responsible for the
heroin epidemic in the northeastern United States and
tens of thousands of deaths in Mexico. His story has
been emulated in books, films and Hip Hop songs made
popular by Gucci Mane, Fredo Santana and Wiz Khalifa.
Chapo was last seen heading to an area in the jail where
inmates shower and wash clothes.
The Toluca International Airport was shut down and
officials are currently on the hunt for the 60-year-old.
