Inside the last manhunt for 'El Chapo'

On January 8, 2016, the notorious Mexican drug lord Joaquin ‘El Chapo’ Guzman was recaptured ending a six month long manhunt. Mexican authorities caught up with the drug kingpin in his home state of Sinaloa. By now, you’ve heard of the controversy surrounding actor Sean Penn, Rolling Stone, and telenovela star Kate Del Castillo but Fusion brings you an exclusive look at the story from the perspective of one of Mexico’s leading journalists. Capturing El Chapo is an inside look at operation “Black Swan.”
