Police Hunt For El Chapo In Costa Rica
Authorities in Costa Rica are currently on a manhunt after El Chapo was seemingly spotted there.
And how did authorities know the drug cartel chief was in the country??? His son tweeted a picture of them casually out and about and eating lunch—with his location turned on.
The son of Sinaloa cartel chief Joaquín Archivaldo Guzman Loera, aka “El Chapo,” may have tweeted a clue to the fugitive’s whereabouts.
A post to an account believed to belong to El Chapo’s son, Alfredo Guzman, includes a photo of the 29-year-old flanked by two unidentified men whose faces are obscured by emoticons. The mustachioed man sitting to Alfredo’s right at a restaurant resembles the kingpin.
The post says: “Satisfied here, you already know with whom.”
The tweet’s location shows Costa Rica. What’s unclear is whether the location tag was inadvertently left on, meant to misdirect authorities or intended to mock them.
It’s not even clear whether this Costa Rica is the Central American country or a town in Mexico.
“One of the most intelligent traffickers has been Chapo,” said Phil Jordan, who spent more than 30 years with the DEA. “His son is not the brightest star on the Christmas tree. The best recorded intelligence on the son is that he doesn’t have his father’s intelligence. But I caution this could be a diversion to throw off authorities.”
Monday’s tweet may have given the public its first glimpse of Guzman since the prison footage.
What do YOU think???
Is the son just trying to throw authorities off or is El Chapo in Costa Rica???
