Chapo Guzman turns 62

On Friday April 5th, Joaquín “El Chapo” Guzmán turned 62 years old. The former leader of the Sinaloa Cartel had excess wealth and power, in fact, Forbes magazine calculated his fortune in one billion dollars a couple of years ago, but now the man is being held in a maximum security prison facility in New York, and is scheduled to be transferred to the Alcatraz of the Rockies: The Most Secure Prison in America.

At this time, “El Chapo” has no contact other than his lawyers and it is said that he can only see his daughters for short periods of time, once a month, through a glass, so it is not difficult to imagine that the best birthday gift the capo could get, it would be to spend some time with his family.

In previous interviews, Emma Coronel, former beauty queen and “El Chapo’s” wife, has always pointed out that the most important thing for the man is his family. Even in the series about his life, the love Joaquin had for his children, his mother and his romantic partners stands out.

The best gift for Joaquín Guzmán would be to be able to hug his wife too, because in the last days of the capo’s trial, the lawyers presented a request from the man to be able to embrace his beautiful wife for a couple of seconds, but the petition was denied.
