Earlier on Friday it was reported by many reputable news sources that the notorious Mexican drug lord known as El Chapohad escaped from prison for an astonishing third time.
Not so, however, as the report was later discovered to be an elaborate hoax played on hundreds of thousands. The story originally broke from a sham news source posing to be ABC News, only upon taking a close look did people begin to realize the additional .co in the website’s link.
No one knows why the hoax was played, but as far as we know, the head of the Sinaloa cartel remains behind bars.
According to reports, drug kingpinEl Chapo is rumored to have escaped a Mexican prison for a third time on Friday. The 61-year-old was sentenced to 20 years in prison for murder and drug trafficking in 1993, but after allegedly paying off guards back in 2001, he was able to escape maximum-security prison.
The famous drug lord made headlines again in 2014 when was found in Mexico, where he was captured and put back in prison – where he escaped again – through a tunnel.
