Latest Prison Escape Adds to Legacy of Evasive Sinaloa Kingpin

Who needs luck when you have a billion-dollar criminal enterprise and a nationwide network of informants at your disposal? That seems to be the lifelong motto of drug kingpin Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzmán, who on Saturday escaped from a maximum-security prison in Mexico the second time he's pulled off such a feat. His history of close calls extends far beyond his two prison breaks, and have become an integral element of his notoriety and legend as the head of the Sinaloa cartel, one of the most powerful illicit drug organizations in Mexico.
