The U.S. State Department offers a $5 million reward for information leading to the capture of Guzman. The tip line is being managed by the DEA’s San Diego field office.
Rosenberg, acting head of the DEA, says Guzman is most likely in Mexico, hiding in his home state of Sinaloa, Mexico. But Rosenberg acknowledged that the elusive Guzman could be anywhere.
I think he is still in Mexico. Do I know that? No. It’s an educated guess.
Mexico’s Attorney General offers a reward of up to 60 million pesos (about $3.8 million) for information leading to the location and capture of Guzman. as well as releasing an updated photo of the escapee. The image shows the Sinaloa cartel chief with a shaved head and face and no mustache. So far, 34 people had been questioned in connection with the escape.
After Trump says that Guzman embodies ‘everything that is wrong with Mexico’ and added he would ‘kick his ass’, the drug lord responds on a Twitter account administered by his son:
Keep f**king around and I’m going to make you swallow your f**king words, f**king white cum sh**ter.
In a series of Twitter posts, Trump comments on El Chapo’s escape.
Mexico’s biggest drug lord escapes from jail. Unbelievable corruption and USA is paying the price. I told you so!..Now that the Mexican drug lord escaped from prison, everyone is saying that most of the cocaine etc. coming into the U.S. comes over border!..…..but that’s what I’ve been saying. Very unfair treatment by the media!..Can you envision Jeb Bush or Hillary Clinton negotiating with ‘El Chapo’, the Mexican drug lord who escaped from prison? ….
U.S. Attorney General Lynch pledges support in the hunt to find Guzman:
The U.S. government stands ready to work with our Mexican partners to provide any assistance that may help support his swift recapture.
Mexico’s attorney general refuses to extradite Guzman to the U.S. citing national sovereignty and also because he must serve his time in Mexican prison for all the crimes for which he is being prosecuted:
I could accept extradition but at the time that I choose. El Chapo must stay here to complete his sentence and then I will extradite him. So about 300 or 400 years later — it will be a while.
The Chicago Crime Commission names Guzman public enemy number one because he supplies a majority of illegal drugs to the city. Commission President:
Guzman is the major supplier of narcotics to Chicago. His agents are working in the Chicago area importing vast quantities of drugs for sale throughout the Chicago region and collecting and sending to Mexico tens of millions of dollars in drug money.
