El Chapo’s final hide-in and escape home


Blood splatters and bullet holes fill the concrete walls, and one of the world’s most notorious drug kingpins escapes the tunnels of the hiding places he once visited.

The vivid photographs show the inside of two safe houses belonging to Joaquin Archivaldo Guzman, the drug lord and former Sinaloa cartel leader, notoriously known as “El Chapo”.Meaning “less”)

And if one remains desolate with a haunted past, the other has taken on a new life.

The first home was in Los Mochis, the city of Sinaloa in the north of the Mexican state, where Guzman spent his final days before being captured by the Mexican navy and handed over to the United States. Guzmಿದn used the second house in Culiacan, the capital of Sinaloa, as a safe house because of his winding escape tunnels.

But for a man with an estimated net worth and property $ 12.6 billion, The leader of the global drug trafficking campaign, whose homes were pretty destitute.

Longtime photographer Hans-Maximo Musilic spent time at the scene of both properties, giving the Post an insight into the ruined shelter used by one of the most dangerous drug traffickers. 3,000 people were killed in just one year His nearly 30-year reign.

“Inside the house, everything was messy,” Musielik observed, pointing to “large frozen pools of blood”, the Post said.

Although the first house is still abandoned, Musilic said the second residence has a new owner. The stranger party has won a two-bedroom house in the Mexican National Lottery, but despite luck, the winners remain anonymous in fear of the cartel.

Commonly known as “El Chapo,” the photos were captured inside the two safe houses of Joaquin Guzman, where they lived in hiding.

On January 8, 2016, Guzman was caught with a nearby bodyguard after two federal police officers stole a car to escape in Los Mochis. Just minutes before his arrest, the two men fled the safe house at 1002 Street in Jikkilpan after Mexican Navy infantry special forces raided the home in an operation known as the “Black Swan” (Cisne Negro).

After his arrest, officers took him to a motel room and kept him there until backup.

The two-story home is made up of three bedrooms with living area on the second floor. There is another large room that looks like a walk-in closet with glass walls. There were beds in all the bedrooms. The first room on the first floor is believed to be Guzman’s bedroom, due to the proximity of the walk-in closet overlooking the secret entrance.

“About 24 hours after his arrest, the national and international media are allowed to enter the safe house,” Musielik told The Post, adding, “One can judge the last stand of some of Guzman’s men.”

A home with low levels of surveillance is still out of the market today. Open court cases about the home prevent the home from being sold or auctioned off.

Culiacan: El Chapo’s another safe house

In February 2014, Guzman was hiding in a house in Culiacan, Mexico, but fled through the back tunnels and canals as officers hunted for him. He was trapped a few days later in the nearby Mazatlan.

The house has since been renovated.

A secret escape tunnel was built under the bathtub, activated by some hydraulic mechanism that was lifted at an angle and allowed the storm drainage of cities to enter the hidden staircase that runs through the tunnel.  El Chapo escaped from this safe house on at least one occasion.

Surveillance cameras that monitor everything around the perimeter of the home were removed and the hole beneath the bathtub connected to the underground tunnels was closed.

Last year, the Mexico Institute, known as INDEP, attempted to auction the house with a bidding starting at about $ 130,000 to return the stolen goods to the public, but with no offers.

However, the two-bedroom house was raffled off by the government on September 15, 2021 through the Mexican National Lottery. The price of a lottery ticket is 250 Mexican pesos. Two million tickets have been sold, but there are no details on who came to own it for fear of the stigma surrounding the property.

Two handles attached to it are used to help keep the bathtub down while everyone is in the tunnel, so it will take the police time to figure out their escape route.  The mechanism of activating the bathtub is also obscured and not apparent at first glance.

When President Andr ಮ್ಯಾನುs Manuel Lಪೆpez Obrador announced the home lottery in June, he did not mention who the last owner was or whether it was associated with the drug cartel.

Obrador said he had a black fence and was only seven minutes from the park.
