El Chapo

Lately, life hasn’t been all that great for notorious drug kingpin Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman. According to Mexican prison officials, El Chapo hasn’t had any Viagra or conjugal visits since his recapture in January.

According to the Daily News, El Chapo’s previous experience in a maximum security prison included several perks, among them the ability to request sex workers every nine days for four viagra-supplied hours at a time.

He no longer has access to TV, but he does get free reading materials, officials said. Guzman just finished the Miguel de Cervantes classic “Don Quixote” and has now started a Spanish-language version of “The Purpose Driven Life: What on Earth Am I Here for?” by Rick Warren, a California-based evangelical pastor.

Of course, El Chapo seems to be doing just fine, who, according to officials, has gained weight, lowered his blood pressure, and embarked on a regimen of self-help books.

From the New York Post:

Since he was recaptured in January, Guzman has read the classic “Don Quijote,” and has now started a Spanish-language translation of “The Purpose Driven Life: What on Earth Am I Here for?” by Rick Warren, a California-based evangelical pastor. The self-help book contains quotes that might pertain to Guzman, like “A pretentious, showy life is an empty life; a plain and simple life is a full life.” And “We are products of our past, but we don’t have to be prisoners of it.”

Escape and Recapture

His associates built a tunnel leading directly underneath El Chapo’s prison shower cell. The concrete floor separating the tunnel and the shower cell was extremely thin, and though which El Chapo was able to escape.

After a six-month manhunt and an intense gunfight with Mexican marines in the seaside city of Los Mochis, El Chapo was recaptured.

Currently, El Chapo is being held inside the Altiplano maximum security prison in Almoloya, west of Mexico City. The cell in which he now resides sits atop a “16-inch bed of concrete and a double layer of rebar.”
