Joaquin Guzman is the second biggest kingpin. Also known as El chapo or “Shorty”, he is the leader of the Sinaloa Cartel. His net worth is around 2-4 billion dollars. The Mexican drug lord has been in arrested multiple times and managed 2 escapes from prison. How does this happen in a maximum-security prison? Well, he pays the officers to either help him escape or simply turn a blind eye. The first time he bribed prison guards to let him go unnoticed, he slipped into a laundry basket and had one of the guards push him out of the prison. The second time, his drug mules and workers had made a tunnel underground with a dirt bike and a track. The government was curious as to how this even happened in a maximum-security prison. Come to find out, his works had drilled a huge square into his cell. El Chapo has a wife and has thirteen children all together. Of course, with many different women. After all of this mess, he was finally captured again and sent to yet another maximum-security prison in Colorado. His wife, Emma, doesn’t really seem to mind as she is using his money and might even have a part in the Sinaloa Cartel herself.
