Family Identifies 20-Year-Old Guard Who Worked At El Chapo’s Prison

Capturing El Chapo may have felt like “game over” for the Mexican government, but this drug war rages on. One of Joaquín “El Chapo” Guzmán’s prison guards was found dead late last week. His body showed signs of serious torture, including stab wounds and a final, fatal blow to the head. His family identified the body after they reported him missing.

Jorge Mauricio Meléndez Herrera, who was just 20 years old, was discovered outside the prison in Ciudad Juarez.

Hundreds of soldiers have been deployed from nearby barracks to protect the prison. Still, the U.S. wants El Chapo transported over the Rio Grande to El Paso where they can keep a closer eye on him.

The U.S. has concerns El Chapo could escape from prison in Mexico, given that he has already escaped twice before. Mexico has agreed to allow the cartel leader to stand trial in the States, though Chapo’s lawyer will do everything he can to keep the legal proceedings South of the Border.
