International News: Mom of imprisoned Drug lord ‘El Chapo’ dies in Mexico

Posted: Monday, December 11, 2023. 3:58 pm CST.

By Zoila Palma Gonzalez: Officials in Mexico have confirmed the death of the mother of imprisoned drug kingpin Joaquin ‘El Chapo’ Guzman.

El Chapo’s mom died in her home town of Sinaloa.

Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador acknowledged her death and offered his “respect” to the family.

López Obrador added in his daily briefing that “any human being who dies deserves respect and consideration for their family.”

El Chapo’s mom died at a private hospital in Culiacán, Sinaloa, which is home to the cartel of the same name that her son helped to lead for about two decades before his arrest and extradition to the United States in 2017.

According to the Associated Press, the kingpin’s mother led a quiet life including frequent religious activities, but she rose to fame after she shook hands with President López Obrador during an impromptu meeting on his visit to Badiraguato in 2020.

In 2020, she wrote a letter to the Mexican President pleading for her son to be returned to Mexico to serve out his sentence.
