Mexico’s notorious drug lord, Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman, has just been captured by Mexican authorities for the third time. Just days after his last shocking escape, Fusion’s Mariana van Zeller arrived in Mexico to get a first hand look at the hunt for the world’s most wanted man. What she witnessed was beyond anything expected, and her mission then took an unexpected turn.
In this updated Fusion original special, Narcos, Guns & Money: Chasing El Chapo, van Zeller also travels to El Chapo’s hometown in Culiacán, Sinaloa—one of Mexico’s most dangerous places—to understand why a community continues to revere a drug kingpin that has brought so much violence and death to his country and abroad.
Fusion Investigates has been on the kingpin’s tail for three years; here, we bring you the latest in the (for now) successful chase for El Chapo.
