Sinaloa Cartel leader El Chapo
Emma Coronel (27, photo), the wife of Joaquín Guzmán Loera, alias El Chapo, fears that her husband will not make it to Christmas. She sees his health deteriorate rapidly every time she visits him in the prison of Ciudad Juarez in northern Mexico. Emma Coronel brought this news out through a major Mexican TV station.
According to Coronel, her 58-year-old husband is in bad condition. Guzmán also told her that he fears that he will die soon. Although he has not lost weight and did not mention suicide, El Chapo is plagued by insomnia and he makes a very muddled impression – said the former beauty queen.
Critics See these statements as an attempt to prevent El Chapo’s extradition to the United States. It’s not the first time that the family of the (former) head of the Sinaloa cartel complained about the treatment of El Chapo. During his detention in the prison of Altiplano he would have been treated badly aswell according the family. Emma Coronel said that he was kept awake constantly . Guzmán escaped in July of last year in spectacular fashion from that prison. He was arrested again in January of this year.
Emma Coronel, the third wife of Guzman, stands firmly behind her husband. She has a twin of four years with him.
