Mexican marines on Friday recaptured fugitive drug lord Joaquín “El Chapo” Guzmán, whose second escape from prison in July embarrassed the government and raised questions about corruption in the country’s law enforcement.
Prior to his arrest, the notorious fugitive had even got as far as contacting actresses and producers for the film, it has emerged. His arrangements for the movie actually played a part in his capture, six months after his Hollywood-style escape from a maximum-security prison near Mexico City.
Attorney General Arely Gomez said an "important aspect that allowed us to locate him was that we discovered Guzman's intention to make a biographical film, for which he established contact with actresses and producers".
"The follow-up work allowed us to document meetings between attorneys of the now-detainee and these people," she said.
Ntorrrrrr...good he was caught!
