Mexico City, Mexico — Early this morning, drug kingpin Joaquin ‘El Chapo’ Guzmán, head of the Sinaloa Cartel, escaped from the Altiplano maximum security prison once again.

It is unclear at this point what exactly happened, but these are the details ABC News has received from Mexican officials so far:

5:35 AM: Guzmán was taken in restraints by two prison guards on a routine cell transfer.

6:05 AM: Prison staff could not locate Guzmán or the two prison guards’s whereabouts. The prison was put on lockdown as personnel went looking for them.

7:15 AM: A prison van was found abandoned only a mile away from the prison. Mexican officials believe the two guards, who began working at the prison just months ago, were actually members of the Sinaloa Cartel working for Guzmán.



Before today’s escape, Mexican officials were working to extradite “El Chapo” to the United States, where he faced drug trafficking charges connected to his cartel, authorities said.

This is now the third time Guzmán has escaped from a Mexican prison and brings into question Mexico’s ability to keep corruption out of it’s penal system.

In 1993, Guzmán was captured in Guatemala, extradited and sentenced to 20 years in prison in Mexico for murder and drug trafficking. In 2001, after bribing Mexican prison guards, he was able to escape from a federal maximum-security prison in 2001. On February 22nd, 2014, Guzmán was found inside his fourth-floor condominium in Mazatlán, Sinaloa, and was captured without any gunshots being fired. Guzmán escaped from prison again on July 11th, 2015 by exiting through a tunnel that led to a nearby construction site. He was recaptured by Mexican marines following a shootout at Guzman’s hideout in Mexico on January 8th, 2016. During the raid, five gunmen were killed, six others arrested, and one Marine was wounded. The Mexican Navy said that they found two armored cars, eight assault rifles, including two Barrett M82 sniper rifles, two M16 rifles with grenade launchers and a loaded rocket-propelled grenade launcher. A .50-caliber rifle was also found, capable of taking down a helicopter. Most of the weapons seized, including the .50 caliber rifle, were from the Fast and Furious gun-smuggling scandal, a story the U.S. government declared to be over.



Sarah Bradley, a spokeswoman for Sock It Forward, a group that provides the homeless and those less fortunate with brand new socks, told ABC News that she is sickened by the United State’s drug policies.

“The war on drugs is a joke and long-lost battle,” Bradley said. “The U.S. creates these cartels by making drugs illegal in the first place. They lock up people in jail for as little as a joint of marijuana. All the incarcerations related to drugs have helped fund a trillion-dollar penal system; from its lawyers, to judges, to the prison staff and the actual prisons themselves. All of it is just pathetic and truly a sad reality.” Bradley continued, “Also, thank you to everyone that has supported our cause in giving new socks to the homeless, it means so much. Please, give what you can.”

Fappy The Anti-Masturbation Dolphin, a mascot for a Christian organization that travels around the country educating children about the dangers and consequences of masturbation, told Fox News he believes in what El Chapo is doing.

“El Chapo stopped all of the masturbation at his prison and felt his work in stopping self-rape could be used elsewhere. It was time for him to move on. So brave! Praise El Chapo!”

After news of the escape, Paul Horner, a U.S. Marshal, working along with Mexican officials, spoke to local law enforcement.

“Listen up, ladies and gentlemen. Our fugitive has been on the run for 90 minutes. Average foot speed over uneven ground, barring injuries, is 4 miles-an-hour. That gives us a radius of six miles. What I want out of each and every one of you is a hard-target search of every gas station, residence, warehouse, farmhouse, henhouse, outhouse and doghouse in that area. Checkpoints go up at fifteen miles. Your fugitive’s name is Joaquin ‘El Chapo’ Guzman. Go get him.”

U.S. Officials along with Mexican authorities have setup a 24-hour hotline at (785) 273-0325 for anyone with information about the whereabouts of Joaquin ‘El Chapo’ Guzman. A $10 million dollar reward is currently being offered and as always, you can remain anonymous.

  1. This is ridiculous! The corruption in Mexico is beyond belief! And of course Obummer is doing nothing to stop it. Pathetic!

    • No you genius. If you’re dumb enough to think that Obama can single-handedly solve the drug crisis, then you’re incredibly stupid.

        • Dave, even Price got a “prescribed” opioid” that comes basically from Afganistan, but also from Mexico. The high crime mountainous area in Mexico between the Sierra Madre Occidental and the Pacific is where poppy seeds grow freely with the oversight of Mexican and American governments. This did not start recently. Back in WWII, Americans started growing the drugs in Mexico to keep its soldiers with “stamina”. Now, it is prescribed by doctors. We have in America a high dependency in prescribed opiods. Just recently, Prince died of an overdose. This has to stopped because doctors are killing young Americans mentally and physically. We need to make Americans aware of this problem; and prevent it !! I know it first hand !! My beautiful and adorable hubby was ill for 15 yrs. And his doctor prescribed him 16 Tylenols with Codein (opiod) per day !! I only allowed him to take one pill per day; and controlled his pains with IcyHot and Arnica mixed and warmed up. He was never addicted after 20 yrs.

          • Marcia I feel for you me than you will ever know although I do have to say after all of the years you say your husband was taking even 1 a day his body still developed a dependincy on these horrible opiads that Dr,s so freely perscrine to patients these days And now the goverment and big pharma is jacking prices sky high on or just kicking patiants off all at once instead Of tapering them off which would be more help then what they are doing now as they are driving some of these people back or to for the 1st to the very nasty deadly herion. This is a very serious problem in this country that has been going on for far to many decades And should have had more attention brought to it until now. Keep Up the great work if educating the public on the terrible addictions these Dr,s have imposed and profited off of the 1s that put their trust into them for help when what they actually were doing was creating opiad addicts and destroying the lives of the very 1s they were supposed to be helping.

        • If the American majority weren’t addicted to these drugs, Mexico would look for another source to supply drugs to, but I don’t think they’ll find another country with more addicts than we have… Sad but True..

          • What is an American President supposed to do about corruption in a foreign country? This guy is Mexico’s problem, not ours. “Obummer”? Really? Run along and play with your little friends. the grownups are trying to talk.

          • Wait, are you saying that you actually believe that the majority of Americans are addicted to heroin? “Sad but true”? Are you completely insane?

          • Smartest comment yet. It’s funny how people are quick to point fingers and make assumptions about other countries but turn a blind eye to the ever increasing drug problem here on American soil. We have more government regulated drug dealers than Mexico, or any other county could hold. (Big pharmaceuticals) they’re banking trillions of Dollars yearly and killing hundreds of thousands of citizens. and let’s not leave out the ever-increasing alcohol epidemic that’s plagued this country forever… but let’s just keep blaming the black guy you know, because this country was perfect before his presidency… *sarcasm*

      • Jorge, its a shame that you talk about Obama as if he can’t do anything. Obama has done wonders to fix the drug problem. You just don’t understand his tactics. Also your statement is flawed. First you call him a genius, then you call him incredibly stupid. They mean two different things. Duh!

        • Exactly…most of them don’t understanding intelligent negotiating and diplomacy, they rather use a cowardly gun or mouth filled with illiterate words.

    • Corruption? Bro the cartels will have told the guards either take our huge bribe and help us, or you and your family will die.. No brainer as anyone in any country would take the money

      • U are fucking scum Obama has tried to do everything to make things better and dumb bitches like your make it hard to do anything…u should praise him because I’m pretty sure none of u who are strong enough or even smart enough to lead a household better yet a country u dumb fucks..drug cartels didn’t just pop up when Obama became president..George Bush senior tried to stop the drug war and nothing happen and your are not talking about him..how about you educate yourself on what the real problem is because it’s not Obama…

        • Obama has supplied cartels with weapons. He is the problem. I am an El Chapo supporter. Want to stop the drug problem in America go after big pharma…. you sir are an idiot and your language proves it…… spell out your words, it makes you look quite uneducated.

          • Obama did not supply Mexican drug cartels with weapons. Morons in the Justice Department (FBI) dropped the ball on a sting and the whole operation went belly up. Not Obama’s fault. Get a clue and try to keep up.

    • sir. why should Obummer. as you so ill-eloquently call him. do anything ,This is a Mexican internal problem paid for by Americans using $20 billion in drugs per year ,How do you fight corruption when your average cop ,Marine ,Soldier Or prison guard make $400 a month ,Do you suggest we pay them ourselves to lower the amount of corruption?? explain to ME what you would do sir.You seem to think OUR president should OR can do something within a Foreign land …

    • The story again speaks fast and furious. MSM and government continue to ignore this corrupt criminal activity by the US government. With the MSM acting as the campaign team for the Democratic party is it any surprize the majority of the public remains unaware of the facts?

    • YOUR FUCKN RETARD, OBAMA? REALLY? THEY GET THEIR GUNS FROM THE US. ATF IS THE BIGGEST GUN AND DRUG TRAFFICOR ON THE PLANET. THIE HAS BEEN GOING ON WAY BEFORE OBAMA.

    • Your comment is ridiculous. It’s not our President’s job to curb corruption in Mexico. If it was, why didn’t Dubya do anything about it? Get real.

    • So now President Obama is to blame for the longstanding corruption in the Mexican government? Why stop there? Why not blame him for the earthquake that hit Sumatra in 2004 and the tsunamis that followed? What about that earthquake that hit Haiti in 2010? President Obama didn’t do anything to stop that either, right? #idiot

    • Here we go, another idiot that thinks Obama can solve and should solve everything. Take a government class you ignorant man, that is not how presidency works. Go vote for Trump so he can “make America great” again. Hahaha ?

    • Ummm first off idiot…I thought obummer as you call him … the president of America….you are all nothing but haters….never in the history has there been a outright disrespect for president….and there have been complaints white house….you no good prejudice evil devils…eat a big black dick

    • You go out of your way to insult Obama. Did you have all these colorful nicknames for George Bush when he was in office fucking up America? Or were you too busy cleaning your pickup truck and drinking Mountain Dew?

    • why would he stop Mexican corruption if he’s an American President? this has been going on since both Bush’s, Clinton, Reagon and even before that…if they sun didn’t shine right tomorrow it would be President Obamas fault also, right

    • So Obama is responsible for Mexico too? Make up your minds people! So Obama is Mexico’s president too? As I am too confused to understand this remark?

    • Shows the arrogance of republicunts. As if a US President has any control over a sovereign nations laws. Not to mention Reagan and Bush Sr. were the biggest exploiters of using cartels to fund the CIA

    • This is such a simple solution, follow the example of Portugal, and the Netherlands, legalize drugs! under government control, it needs to be legaized!! Portugal has shown that drug abuse has been significantly reduced and the murder rate is zippo! none! nada! How many stupid ass politicians does it take to realize this logical conclusion? A majority of Democrats in the house and the senate. Get a grip America and stop being so religiously stupid about this horrific problem, this is a plague that needs to be stopped by legalization!!!!!!!!!

      • Just for your information, I’m portuguese and most drugs are illegal here (including marijuana). It’s true that we have a very low murder rate though, but that might have to do with the fact that guns are also illegal for “normal” people.

        Cheers and go Murica!

      • I completely agree. I don’t understand why this is such a big deal. Really I think that it’s only a problem with people because that always want to “catch the bad guy”. We should be after Trump…

    • Madman you say. Madmen are the governors, presidents, Mexican an American that do nothing about it because they are involved. The US needs their people to be under the use of drugs so they dont care about what goverment do, and in mexico they want us to think this is the way we need to live, people are beggining to think this is the only way to make a living, they have abandoned agriculture, instead of producing food they are drugtraffiking because the goverment gives no support.

    • That’s why other countries look to America for everything..please this world wouldn’t run with the United States helping your poor as country

  2. When you have as much money as El Chapo in the USA, you never get put in prison in the first place. When the working class can’t survive on wages from a 40 hour week, they’re all for sale.

  3. What a giant laugh ,it pleases me to no end that this has just happened !I could only be happier if I was Chapo himself!
    All the kings horses and all the kings men could not hold El Chapo in prison agian!
    This Bradley women above is from all told about the only one of the bunch of you (mouth breathing, hillbillies) that actually gets it!
    Your claims on how coruption and Mexico,but the coruption is pathetic minor I’n Mexico compared to your legal and prison system of the US! The billions going to feed this huge machine of coruption is u ending and who benifits from it! No body . So go ahead and hire some more knuckle dragging goes for your drug wars,build more prisons ,make some more laws , put thoasands more in jail ,but please don,t whatever you do,stop putting kids in jail for selling someone a joint!
    The stupidity of the drug war are overwhelming,it could only happen inthe US!

  4. At this point i think El Chapo deserves an award… an award for defeating Mexico security time and over again. I like this guy already, and i become more interested in his story daily.

    When will ‘El Chapo Guzman’ be out on PS4?

  5. It is interesting how quickly the comment section was directed towards a discussion on pOTUS. A critical comment made and just as quickly a retort etc.

    Nothing mentioned in a comment about the “Fast and Furious Drug Cartel Armaments Supply”. Just thinking; who started the false narrative and what was the agenda?

  6. Is there any chance at all that El Chapo will do us a big favor and take Sean Penn to Mexico and get him to shut up …. it might help you, El Chapo, stay our of prison. After all, it’s his fault that you got caught last time.

  7. Look at all these foilish sheep complaining about a “bad man” bet at least one of your kids is using chapos drugs now, and you blame it on him? No el chapos cartel is nothing moe then any other regular mcdonals or burger king, he supplies, its not his fault that people buy.

  8. if you squeal of el chapo you can ” remain anonymous” . you gotta be kidding us. no amount of money can buy enough protection from these thugs to keep you safe. the gov is so stupid. they get hacked constantly . this is the same gov that gives you obamacare and broke social security and a million other stupid indignities. if you inform you will be dead. the only reason drugs continue to be illegal is the lobbying strength of the gov unions who represent those in the anti-drug agencies, the banks who make billions on money-laundering, the alcohol industry (which was behind the original anti-marijuana laws. Marijuana use skyrocketed during prohibition (another stupid thing besides obama and bernie sanders and the fed gov ” husband ” who doesn’t demand sex and good parenting skills that white women just love and vote for – there was a reason that the founders didn’t give women the vote and why Islam suppresses women – not saying they are right at all, just that when the despots can control the people, those who control the despots then control us) and politicians in the 30s when prohibition was rescinded were influenced to penalize pot use to help the alcohol industry get back on its feet. It’s grist for a good thriller movie.

  9. I can’t help it, this makes me laugh…if drugs were made legal would we have to spend all this money catching drug lords? So foolish, just as foolish as alcohol prohibition was in the 1920s.

  10. Amazing. But I don’t blame anyone that helps him. He is capable of anything and if you don’t take the money, you get you and your family killed. Not much of a choice there. You take your chances and maybe he won’t kill you for spike. Anyway, as much as I hate to say this, maybe legalizing whatever drugs this nut sells will stop some of this violence. I don’t know. But I remember the first thing I was taught about in business was about “supply and demand”. There is a demand for this recreational drugs, that we cannot denie because there are allot of people making tons of money selling it. Think about what if we regulate it like we do alcohol (Alcohol Beverage Control (ABC) Stores) and SIN tax it like we do liquor. The tax revenues would be through the roof and we can use the money for infrastructure improvement etc… As for rules, the same rules will aply for drugs as the ones for alcohol. Anyone violating them gets fined and/or jail accordingly. I don’t know if I’m getting all of it but I think most.of you will understand what I’m trying to say. Well, it will save some lives at the very least. Thank you.

  11. Lmfaooo my son el chapo is that nigga fuck obama fuck everybody joaquin el chapo fucking guzman is the fucking man !!!!!

  12. Simple solution this continuing escapes. Next time he is caught put an F’n bullet in his f’n head right then. Problem solved. Oh and if worried that just some one else taking his place do the same to them.

  13. Is it just me or is everybody brain dead, Obama in my opinion has been one of the best Presidents EVER! How can anybody control what another mutherfucker do…that’s why we have laws are they still broken…yes, we have prisons do people still do fucked up shit to get there…yes. You tell people its illegal to text and drive and mutherfuckers still do it and kill themselves and a couple other people. So you say legalize drugs that worked for a country that didnt have much of a crime rate anyways. WE HAVE A STRUCTURED LEGAL SYSTEM!!! Our country has to live by those same rules they make, its not Obama’s call. Beer is legal you can buy it anywhere but do people still make moonshine…yes. Weed is not a fucking drug, its this synthetic shit thats the problem. Certain drugs create certain problems, it bring crime. I live in Austin, Tx. and I know there is crime everywhere you go but some crime really dont happen too much in certain areas for example a few years back Austin was having alot of home invasion, kidnapping, and now in the recent year or so human trafficking. These are crimes that were rare in my City. Do I blame Obama…No. Again I ask what does he have to do with El Chapo escaping…nothing but yall blame him for everything. Cocaine been around before Obama was born. The Idians discovery weed. What else do yall want from him. Bring our soldiers back, he did. Catch Osama bin Laden, he did. Our country is broke, fix it, he did. China released this movie early what do we do nothing. Why? Because that’s not an USA problem its a movie and you want him to do what start a war. Now its El Chapo we know alot of 3rd world countries dont have a Structured legal system and is often corrupted. So he escaped a few times in a country that was not the USA that Obama have jurisdiction over and yet yall found a way to still involve him. I know what yall should do…kill yourself bitches!!!!

  14. the Mexican authorities want him to get away. what El Chapo knows could embarrass the U.S. I can imagine the FBI and CIA are fucking pissed.

  15. DON’T FORGET US AND MEXICO SIGNED AN AGREEMENT! SO WITH THAT IN MIND STOP FUCKIN BOTHERING OBAMA AND THE FRIENDS WHOSE ENDORSING THIS KING PIN FROM WITHIN! LET’S SEE IF YOU FOOLS GONNA DEFEND DUMB TRUMP WHEN EL SHARPO CHAPO SHOOT HIS RACIST ASS! HIS REAL TALK! WILL WALK HIM OUT OF REAL LIFE!

  16. True Obama is not responsible for the corruption, but allowing these assholes to
    embarrass us time and again.. Even with the
    unfiltered borders bringing in “undocumented Democrats” is another example of psychotic Liberalism !!

    • How in the hell is elchapo embarrassing the United States he wasn’t in United States custody u dumb ass..I blame your momma for having a dumb seed

  17. Mr. Chapo has made a mockery of the Mexican penal system showing that money talks. It has been an incredible astounding performance an unstoppable vigilante ignoring the system which tried to incarcerate and restrict his freedom well done Chapo.

  18. How do you figure this has anything to do with Obama? Mexico is controlled by the cartels. These groups have the most influence in politics, economics, violence, etc, in Mexico than anything else. As long as the drug war continues, and master minds like el chapo has customers world wide to purchase his product and even worse, become addicted to it, this is how Mexico, America, and the rest of the world will be.

  19. No jail on earth can hold “El Chapo” $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$
    He needs to run for US President and have OJ as VP. Cut the Juice Loose. LOL

  20. On foot? Are they that naive? I’d bet money on it that they had a car waiting. Doesn’t take a lot to figure that out?
    Now, if I were Sean Penn I’d take a vacation to some obscure unheard of place and plan on getting a tan…whatever.

  21. So… We just gonna blast right past Fappy the Dolphin like that’s a regular thing? Haha, thank you El Chapo for stopping the Self-Rape in the prison.

  22. I not sure that this article I’d even real but the comments are very amusing…………..the corruption in both governments has been going on FOREVER so to try and blame on one single person is ridiculous

  23. EL CHAPPO LIVES

    He will be walking the malecon in Puerto Vallarta signing autographs today with Sean Penn and Marlyn Monroe.

  24. America is the largest consumer of drugs in the world, if Americans would stop using drugs then the drug problem would be solved… Simple solution right ??? Prohibition doesn’t work, remember Al Capone !? I don’t agree with all drugs but if they are legalized and regulated like “ALCOHOL”, the other drug it eliminates the black market (drug cartels, cia) overnight.

  25. Great news.
    For the hillbillies start talking trash, something to think about?
    How about Nickname Poppy … sr, …,…,… etc who operated in shadows.
    Wolves in sheeps clothing are more dangerous , Hillary or jeb will be your next president.
    How about those appels?Putin chapo are the media,s focus, but not our enemies.

  26. luck will run out one day El Chapo until then keep on running,even if US gets El Chapo can they Keep him from escaping? Before answering that question just think is the major leader of the drug cartel that’s Global

  27. It takes a real life idiot to think this has anything to do with O’Bama. If you can read he broke out of a prison in Mexico not the US.

  28. Ronald Wilson Reagan sowed the seeds back in the 1980’s when he declared, “a war on drugs”. The USA is to blame for all this, and so much more.

  29. The world sees this news, checks the dateline to rule out that it’s an old report of an earlier occurrence, and concludes that Mexicans must be every bit as stupid and inept as portrayed in old movies and cartoons.

  30. Who interviewed “Fappy the Anti-Masturbation Dolphin” and decided to use them as a reference for this article? Haha!

  31. I only came here for Fappy the Dolphin! Remember what Fappy says kids and don’t be punchin’ the clown. It will cause blindess and hairy palms!
