One of the biggest drug lords, Joaquin Guzman, has finally been recaptured and arrested by the police. How were the police finally able to locate this notorious drug lord though?
According to an article written by Mariano Castillo on the CNN website, the Mexican drug lord had quite of a crush on the famous Mexican-American actress Kate del Castillo. She was able to setup an interview with the actor Sean Penn on behalf of Rolling Stone magazine. The secret meeting took place in the Mexican jungle. Sean Penn wanted to know about Guzman’s current situation and anything else El Chapo wanted to talk about. During the interview, El Chapo bragged about supplying “more heroin, methamphetamine, cocaine and marijuana than anybody else in the world.”
Mexican authorities were able to intercept the text message between Guzman and Castillo which led to finding out the location of his hideout, and inevitably, capturing him. (Below is the last group of messages sent before his capture. If you wish to see all of the messages they are available at Milenio.com)
Below it can be assumed that El Chapo and Castillo were messaging about the upcoming interview for the Rolling Stone magazine.
