El Chapo

Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman ran a drug trafficking operation in Mexico known as the Sinaloa cartel. He was first arrested in 1993, but escaped from prison in 2001 while serving a 20 year sentence. He eluded authorities for many years until he was captured again in 2014. He found a way out through an underground tunnel in July 2015. Guzman was known to fancy prostitutes and gave them cell phones. The DEA and Mexican authorities used the signal to track him. In hopes of luring actress Kate del Castillo into bed, he granted her and actor Sean Penn an exclusive interview for “Rolling Stone” magazine in October 2015. El Chapo was caught once again in January 2016 during a shootout with Mexican naval forces. Penn denies having anything to do with his capture, insisting they met months before in a different location than where he was found. Guzman was extradited to the United States in January 2017. He will go to trial in April 2018 on 17 counts including drug trafficking, murder, and kidnapping charges. Guzman married Californian born former beauty queen Emma Coronel Aispuro on her 18th birthday. He already had two wives he was not divorced from. He and Emma have twin daughters, Maria Joaquina and Emali Guadalupe, who were born in the United States. He has a total of 19 children with at least six other women.
