An alleged handwritten letter by Joaquín El Chapo Guzmán is one of the tests on which the investigation was based to arrest his wife, Emma Coronel, accused of international drug trafficking on Monday in the United States.
Among the evidence that FBI agent Eric S. McGuire includes in an affidavit filed on Wednesday, February 17, to obtain the arrest warrant for Coronel, is said handwritten document in which he negotiates the heroin trade with a partner.
“With respect to Cleto, increase production to make it work. Say hello to Cleto. Tell him please give me a hand, so that the first sale is on my part … because I have many expenses here, “says the letter quoted in the document.
McGuire details in this document that Cleto is a Durango-based drug trafficker who produces heroin for El Chapo Guzman. He also details that when he speaks of “many expenses” he refers to the bribes he had to pay in prison, in addition to the money to support his family.
“The mother of twins it will say something to you and my children. Please, be attentive compadre. She will explain it to you, “the letter says.” The mother of the twins has a message for all of you. “The mother of the twins is Colonel, according to the FBI agent.
According to McGuire, this letter was authenticated by various witnesses, including cooperating witness number 1. A source from the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) confirmed to Noticias Telemundo that the witness referred to by the FBI agent is Damaso lopez, also know as Graduate, a former collaborator of El Chapo who spoke out against him during the trial in 2019.
The letter could have been written by Guzmán during one of the periods he spent in detention in the Altiplano, the maximum security prison located in the State of Mexico, between 2014 and 2017, which was interrupted by his escape in July 2015.
