The day ‘El Chapo’ left Culiacán without flowers

2199

The digital site La Silla Rota recalled one of the real scenes of drug trafficking in Mexico both surreal and representative of the excesses of organized crime. 

After the murder of the ex-leader of the Sinaloa Cartel, Joaquín ‘El Chapo’ Guzmán, Édgar Guzmán López, occurred on May 8, 2008, Culiacán ran out of flowers for Mother’s Day. 

That city in that year was the scene of a war between old friends: The Sinaloa Cartel and the Beltrán Leyva.

They separated from the criminal organization and began a bloody dispute, where Guzmán Loera had the biggest loss: his son.

“The brothers accused Joaquín Guzmán Loera,” El Chapo “, of having betrayed them and handed over to Alfredo Beltrán Leyva,” El Mochomo “, who was arrested at the beginning of that year in Culiacán, Sinaloa. 

They separated from the criminal organization and began a bloody dispute, where Guzmán Loera had the biggest loss: his son. 

On May 8, 2008, four Beltrán Leyva gunmen shot Edgar Guzmán López, son of “El Chapo” and his second wife Griselda López Pérez, “adds La Silla Rota. 

Given the ostentatiousness of drug lords, “El Chapo” spared no expense and squandered at the funeral of Edgar Guzmán López. 

Thus, the leader of the Sinaloa Cartel sent to buy all the red roses of Culiacán for his son.

The fact was represented in the Netflix series, about the life of the ex-leader of the Sinaloa Cartel.

After the event was born a corrido interpreted by Lupillo Rivera called “50 thousand roses”.
