WARNING GRAPHIC: The Most Brutal Murders Linked to El Chapo’s Sinaloa Cartel
As the world continues its love affair with Mexican drug lord Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman Loera, public opinion continues to focus on how the billionaire drug lord has managed to escape twice from two of Mexico’s maximum security prisons, as well as the vast power and reach of his criminal enterprise known as the Sinaloa Cartel. Let’s take a look at the real “El Chapo” actor Sean Penn protected and glamorized.
As Breitbart Texas previously reported, Guzman’s empire, while deemed praise worthy by many, has in fact been built on bloodshed. A quick look at the history of the Sinaloa Cartel shows that El Chapo and efforts to expand his empire have led to much of the ongoing drug violence that has plunged Mexico into a narco-war.
Below are some of the most brutal murders or gun battles that Guzman’s Sinaloa Cartel has been responsible of played a major role in.
Boca Del Rio Massacre– On september 20, 2011, gunmen from Los Matazetas working at the time under orders of the Sinaloa Cartel dumped the tortured bodies of 35 men and women along a city highway in Boca Del Rio, Veracruz. The bodies were left behind along with a narco banner where the Sinaloa Cartel forces took credit for the murder and threatened Los Zetas.
