No, El Chapo didn't escape again.
Social media has been buzzing since yesterday afternoon about a rumored third jail bust by drug cartel leader Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman.
The story is coming from a hoax ABC News site, but even still some are sharing the story of the daring escape.
The quote from a woman who works for a group that “provides the homeless and those less fortunate with brand new socks” was the big tip-off that the story isn’t real.
The references to the 1993 Harrison Ford flick "The Fugitive" were a nice touch though.
The abcnews.com.co URL has helped proliferate plenty of hoax stories before.
Remember when President Obama signed an executive order limiting U.S. gun owners to three guns, or when Donald Trump announced Sheriff Joe Arpaio as running mate? Yup, stories both made up by the fake ABC news site.
Bill Murray isn't running for president either. Fake ABC tricked folks again. Although, that would be kind of cool.
In the real world Guzman was apprehended earlier this month by officials, ending his time as one of the most wanted men on the planet.
On the lam since his July 11, 2015 escape from a Mexico prison, Guzman was returned to custody Jan. 8, after Mexican marines seized him in a raid at a home in the coastal city of Los Mochis, in Guzman's home state of Sinaloa.
During the shootout, five of Guzman's supporters were killed and six were arrested, according to the Associated Press.
Actor Sean Penn interviewed the fugitive last fall for a story that would eventually run in the beginning of January in Rolling Stone magazine.
Penn had the first-ever interview with Guzman in early October, but it took a few months for the interview and Penn’s story to be published.
The story didn’t last very long at the top of the headlines as musician David Bowie died just a day later.
A Mexican law enforcement official told reporters that it was that interview conducted in the remote community of Tamazula in the state of Durango that helped authorities track down Guzman.
Penn meanwhile told “60 Minutes” that in many ways he regretted his involvement with Guzman, saying that the intent of the interview wasn’t for Guzman to be captured, but to shed light on the environment that made a character like Guzman possible to thrive.
