Joaquín Guzmán Loera
The move to go after Aureliano Guzmán Loera, known as El Guano, comes following the “largest fentanyl seizure in history” in Sinaloa. Mexico's criminal organizations are major producers of illicit versions of the killer opioid.
Alejandro Edda stars as Joaquín “El Chapo” Guzmán in Narcos: Mexico. So he went to see the drug lord on trial.
Clara Elena Laborín Archuleta, the wife of imprisoned drug lord Hector Beltrán Leyva, was reportedly planning to retake turf in Acapulco that was once held by her husband's cartel.
El Chapo's mother reportedly left La Tuna, a small village in the Sinaloan sierra, in a helicopter fleeing the violence. Locals speak of rising tensions as a rival cartel moves into the territory, led by El Chapo Isidro.
State-level legislator Lucero Sánchez López allegedly used fake identification to visit the drug lord in the maximum-security prison where he was held between February 2014 and his spectacular tunnel escape in July last year.
Chapo is now very close to a trial in Texas or California, but the world's most famous drug lord can still appeal the extradition order.
The Sinaloa cartel boss is reportedly miffed and ready to cross the border because Mexican prison guards are waking him up all the time.
