Is This the Real Joaquín “el Chapo” Guzmán?
I recently received an anonymous tip on a piece I wrote last year that catalogued some of the ingenious narco-smuggling tech used by Guzmán, the world’s most powerful and wealthy cartel boss. His methods run the gamut from ancient Grecian artillery (weed catapults) to sly business fronts (his one-time jalapeño company thrived off cans of coke-stuffed peppers) to million-dollar watercraft (narco submarines).
It’s this whatever-works approach to providing Americans with a great deal of their drugs that has propelled his Sinaloa cartel to grim notoriety, and Chapo himself to mythic status across Mexico. Countless narcocorridos sing his high praises. And though he’s known to frequent bustling urban areas, brazenly hiding in plain sight, few pictures of the man exist.
