Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman

QCOSTARICA – A photo released by a Twitter account last month of Jesus Alfredo Guzman Salazar, the son of drug lord Joaquin “ELpo”Guzman who escaped from a Mexican prison earlier this year, suggests that the chief of the Sinaloa cartel could be in Costa Rica.

The picture shows Alfredo sitting at a table with two other men, one of whom resembles El Chapo, although it is difficult to say, because the face is partially obscured by overlaid images.

[/su_pullquote]The photo is dated August 26 with the pinned Twitter location saying Costa Rica. A caption, in Spanish, underneath the image says “August here, already know who.”

The authenticity of the image has not been confirmed and Costa Rica’s police are currently investigating the matter.

El Chapo Guzman was jailed at the Altiplano maximum security prison in Mexico in February 2014. On July 11, El Chapo escaped using an underground tunnel that led from under his cell shower to a house construction site about 1.5 kilometers (0.9 miles) away.

Interpol has issued a red notice for El Chapo.Mexican Attorney General Arely Gomez has said that his country is ready to pay 60 million Mexican pesos (almost $4 million) for information on Guzman’s current whereabouts.

El Chapo’s most recent escape is not the first one. In 2001, he escaped from a maximum security prison in Mexico’s Jalisco state, using a laundry cart.

The Sinaloa drug cartel, led by Guzman, is responsible for a large portion of cocaine, heroin and marijuana sold in the streets of the United States. The drug empire has allowed Guzman to accumulate a major fortune, which was estimated to be some $1 billion in 2009.

The Forbes magazine ranked El Chapo as one of the most powerful people in the world in 2009, 2010 and 2011.
