El Chapo Injured While Narrowly Escaping Capture in Mexico

It sounds like Mexican authorities are getting closer to Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman, the convicted cartel kingpin who disappeared through a hole in the shower floor of his maximum security prison cell in July.

Mexican officials told reporters this week that the fugitive drug lord injured his face and leg while narrowly escaping from security forces that had closed in on Guzman’s mountain hideout in northwest Mexico. Guzman reportedly fled the hideout shortly before soldiers arrived.

Those Mexican officials haven’t revealed how long the soldiers missed Guzman by, how bad his injuries really are, or even how they know he’s injured, probably because they don’t want to reveal how they were able to find him. The New York Times said the hideout was in a place called the Golden Triangle, “a rugged area at the border of Mr. Guzmán’s home state, Sinaloa…”

Of course, who really knows what to believe after this leaked audio from El Chapo’s prison cell showed that it was painfully obvious something was going on from all the drilling sounds the night he escaped, yet guards acted pretty surprised when they checked out his cell later.
