The world hasn’t seen Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman Loera in years, but the head of Mexico’s Sinaloa cartel – and certainly the most wanted man in Latin America - is rumored to be dead.
The Web is thick with chatter that Guzman may have been killed just across the border from Mexico in Guatemala, but there has been no confirmation. I repeat, no confirmation.
There have been plenty of rumors about Guzman over the years. It seems perfectly reasonable to suspect even a capo as elusive as Guzman will ultimately end up dead or in prison, as they say. And so, one of these days the rumors will likely be true.
But Guzman is not just any drug king.
