It is said that 20 men were sent there

to build the tunnel.

He came from Agua Prieta,

in Sonora in northern Mexico

Here was created a legend

Just south of the border with Arizona,

where all the gringos live

They enjoy the goods

we send there in our carriages

There, south of the border,

where we dig our tunnels

popularly known tunnel

for "Cocaine Alley"

The best architects

were involved in the construction

The man behind the construction

was a certain Chapo Guzmn

Sadly for workers

he paid never charged anyone salary

Sadly for workers

he paid never charged anyone salary

I believe that Chapo Guzmn

is the world's most dangerous criminal.

Joaqun Guzmn Loera,

also known as Chapo Guzmn-

trying to keep away the

most persistent police hunt ever.

Chapo Guzmn has built up

a powerful empire.

So far as his drug reaches,

that far extends his power.

Joaqun Guzmn,

known as El Chapo, or Shorty-

being chased by the police

in Mexico and the US

since he escaped from prison in 2001.

Even so, he has managed to build

the biggest drug empire ever.

With the British filmmaker

Angus MacQueen-

I have filmed the drug trade

for over ten years.

I have witnessed the terrible

violence that had taken over my continent.

We have ifrgasatt

everything we have been told about droghandeln-

so we decided

to do the impossible.

We would find El Chapo Guzmn,

the world's most wanted man.

We started in Chicago, where El Chapos

Sinaloakartell has its headquarters.

He has been appointed

as public enemy number one.

The same epithet Al Capone got

for more than 80 years ago.

This man has most of the

Americans never heard of.

We use the same name

as at Al Capone on the 1930s.

It's the second time

this has been necessary.

So vicious and powerful

is this man.

Just in Chicago has over 90 percent

of marijuana, cocaine, heroinet-

methamphetamine and other synthetic

drugs being sold out on gatorna-

come here from Sinaolakartellen.

El Chapo controls the cartel

as a terrorist group.

His many distributors in Chicago

works as individual cells.

We found a family that imported

drugs from Mexico for several decades.

Just like on the movie

he came in a private aircraft.

Turn right when you can, soon.

It's all about family.

We are still cowboys

who takes care of our own.

In principle, all dedicated to the same man.

Most do it.

How he manages

to build up so much power?

Ask him. I do not know.

He's smart, a smart little bastard.

I do not know how he manages to,

but he does it well.

I take care of the logistics,

I plan and find solutions.

I'll get the keys, handles

supplies... I'll take care of everything.

It'll go simply to receive

drug deliveries every day.

It is not we who set the prices,

they do.

That depends on how much people buy,

it could be several tons.

The prices vary,

but they put down there.

It's like working

for any business.

It's the same thing.

One employee

to perform its task.

It asks no questions,

it takes is a handshake.

You never know who you work for.

He may not even exist,

he might be just a myth.

You have not been able to find him?

Not even the world

ablest officers find him.

If you search on Google

you can find him easily

At the top on the list,

the enemy number one

For singletons, a man of rural family

His mother's name was Consuelo Loera,

and father Emilio

His first wife Alejandrina

gave him three sons - some say five

Then he found three - or was

the five - with Griselda Lpez Prez

His third wife, Miss Sinaloa yourself,

she called Emma Coronel
