Joaquin Guzman Loera: Billionaire Drug Lord...
• Born on April 4, 1957, to a poor family in the rural town of La Tuna Badiraguato, his abusive father kicked him out of the house as a child. He's poorly educated, and reportedly resorted to using a ghostwriter to compose love letters to a mistress.
• Began his career in the drug trade as an apprentice of "El Padrino" (Godfather) Miguel Angel Felix Gallardo, who once headed Mexico's most powerful drug cartel. Guzman founded his own cartel in 1980, quickly establishing posts in 17 Mexican states. Sinaloa, his organization, takes its name from a Mexican state along the Pacific coast long known as a hotbed for drug trafficking. After Gallardo's arrest in 1989, Guzman inherited some of his territory.
• Established notorious groups of henchmen, known as "Los Chachos," "Los Negros," "Los Texas," and "Los Lobos," which are suspected of committing more than 1,000 murders across Mexico, including the killing of coc aine rival Rodolfo Carrillo Fuentes of the Juarez Cartel.
