Six months ago infamous Mexican drug kingpin and billionaire Joaquin El Chapo Guzman "escaped," for the second time, from a prison in Mexico. He escaped the first time by hiding in a laundry basket. The second time, he left the prison through a tunnel in his cell.
Pro-tip: El Chapo isn't "escaping," they're letting him out. That's how things work in Mexico.— Katie Pavlich (@KatiePavlich) July 13, 2015
Now, El Chapo has been recaptured and the United States, specifically the Drug Enforcement Agency, is demanding he be extradicted to the United States.
The navy said in a statement that marines, acting on a tip, stormed into a home in the town of Los Mochis before dawn. They were fired on from inside the building. Five suspects were killed and six others arrested, according to the statement.

How will he "escape" this time? Nobody knows, but the guards he's paying off will know soon.
El Chapo is responsible for the murders, including beheadings, acid baths, dismemberment and more, of thousands of Mexican citizens.
