According to Cuitlahuac Salinas Martinez, Deputy head of the Organized Crime, Mexico and The United States almost got their most wanted man last month if it hadn’t been for a lady of the night having her monthly visitor when drug kingpin Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman requested her services. The man who the DEA consider the most powerful drug lord of all time, even surpassing the infamous drug lord Pablo Escobar, was alerted of the woman’s red river when he arrived at the location of the encounter and decided it be best that he returned when her cycle had concluded. Good thing for him he did not proceed because Mexican officials arrived a few days later to try and capture Guzman who has been on the run since 2001 when he escaped prison. Guzman, the leader of the Mexico based Sinaloa Cartel, adds another great, albeit unintentional, escape to his scrapbook.

According to statements by Salinas Martinez, the man most wanted by U.S. and Mexican justice, would have met the prostitute in the residence in Punta Ballena, about 18 February. Although Guzman would not have arranged the encounter directly, the agreement was presumably assigned to a third party of unknown identity.
The Reforma reports the prostitute was blindfolded and taken to the rented residence for her sexual rendezvous with the drug cartel leader. In the house were a cook, and a gardener who stated they had only been employed the residence for a month.
Sources of Reforma indicated that workers in the house did not know who rented the home or who to expect the arrival of, until the gardener was sent to pick up a man to a clandestine airstrip located in the southern part of the Mexican state of Baja California, known as Baja Sur .
The Mexican newspaper said that until that moment that the gardener saw that it was the Sinaloa Cartel leader, Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman.
Waiting at the house was the prostitute who was also taken by surprise when Guzman arrived at the home.
Cuitláhuac Salinas Martinez, a representative of the Mexico’s organized crime division of the Attorney General’s office, said that after Guzman arrived at the house, the prostitute told him she wouldn’t be able to perform the services she was hired for because she was menstruating. The two agreed to postpone the encounter. Guzman left the property, but the prostitute stayed at the house for a few more days, Salinas Martinez said.
Mexican investigators arrived at the house and arrested the prostitute, gardener and cook on Feb. 21. Salinas Martinez suggested that had it not been for the postponed encounter, authorities might have finally arrested Guzman, whom they have been trying to pin down since he escaped from a Mexican prison 11 years ago.
He also noted that on February 21 police entered the property and in addition to the arrests confiscated two trucks, grenades, a rifle and a grenade launcher.
