Mexico's Most Notorious Drug Lord Escapes From Prison Once Again

Joaquin "El Chapo"--also known as "Shorty" Guzman broke out of prison Saturday night. This marks the second time that Mexico’s most feared drug trafficker has busted out of a security facility in 15 years.
Mexico's National Security Commissioner Monte Alejandro Rubido told reporters Saturday night that prison staff reported the prison break after they had found an opening to a tunnel leading to Guzman’s shower cell. A massive manhunt has begun for Guzman, who was being held in the maximum-security Altiplano prison, in the State of Mexico. This marks the second time that the kingpin has busted out of a security facility. In 2001, he escaped from another Mexican prison by hiding in a laundry cart.
