again, leaving Mexico in a state of emergency, CNN


In a press conference Sunday morning, Mexico National

Security spokesman Monte Alejandro Rubido García

confirmed the drug lord’s escape. García 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,

Chapo’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.
