Chapo's wedding: Boda en Durango

Proceso (5-1-13)

Translated by un vato for Borderland Beat

A few days ago, Ines Coronel Barrera and Omar Coronel Aispuro,  Chapo Guzman's father in law and brother in law, respectively, were arrested in Sonora. Proceso  recalled an account  first published on September 2, 2007, of the wedding of Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman and Emma Coronel Aispuro. I've translated only the portion of the report that narrates the wedding. It's an interesting story. --un vato

...The Deputy Secretary of Standards and Media of the Department of the Interior (Segob), Eduardo Sanchez Hernandez, said that "according to intelligence information, Ines Coronel Barrera is identified as the father of Emma Coronel Aispuro, the wife of Joaquin Guzman Loera, whom she married in 2007 in the town of Angostura, Canelas County, Durango.

In its Edition No. 1609, on September 2, 2007, Proceso published a report titled "Wedding in Durango...and the highest capo was married to Emma I".


There, it tells the peculiar love story of Emma and El Chapo Guzman, which filled with pride her father and mother, Ines Coronel Barrera and Estela Aispuro Aispuro, respectively, both from the town of Angostura.

In its public version, the story began on November 20, 2006. On that day, the city council called on all the young girls to compete in the contest to elect the queen of the 2007 Great Coffee and Guava Festival.

One of the candidates surprised people: Emma, a girl from the remote village of La Angostura, would compete against Baudelia Ayala Coronel, from El Ranchito; Rosa Sandoval Avitia, from the county seat; Alma Diaz Rodriguez, from Zapote and Nancy Herrera Vizcarra, from Mesa de Guadalupe.

From that point on, the five candidates organized events to win sympathizers. Emma invited as many people as she could to the big dance she would hold on January 6, 2007. About this event, the local newspaper, El Correo de la Montana, stated that it gave Emma a sort of "morbid popularity", based on the expectation that El Chapo would be present. There were already rumors -- which later became news -- about a wedding.

The Day of Epiphany came. At 11:00 in the morning, some 200 motorcycles with seating for two riders arrived at Canelas. They carried men with black uniforms and hoods, with submachine guns on their shoulders and large caliber pistols on their belts. Little by little, they spread out to the town's ten entrances, including those used by horsemen. They placed themselves on all the streets.

Then, the members of the band Los Canelos landed on the local air strip aboard five-seat airplanes; their job was to provide the entertainment. But they were also armed with weapons: they showed off pistols with gold grips. Hours later, at 4:30 p.m., six fixed wing aircraft landed . El Chapo descended from one of these.

He wore jeans, jacket, cap and black leather athletic shoes. These had a white stripe. As if it was part of his clothing, he had an AK-47 "cuerno de chivo" assault rifle strapped across his chest and, on his waist, a pistol that matched his clothes.

Behind him, his right hand stepped down from the same airplane; Nacho Coronel, originally from Canelas.

Immediately, the rest of this most wanted drug trafficker's security team was deployed. From three other airplanes descended men wearing green clothing, similar to military uniforms; they were wearing vests and had radios attached to their chests. The operation was more ostentatious than that seen on presidential trips.

The other two airplanes carried the weapons: grenades, cuernos de chivo, submachine guns and handguns. And innumerable cases of whiskey.

Two helicopters began flying over the area; the operation was complete. In the town square, Los Canelos started the dance with Cruzando cerros y arroyos (Crossing Mountains and Streams), the song that El Chapo used to court Emma with.

Cruzando cerros y arroyos /he venido para verte...
(Across mountains and streams /I've come to see you..) 

Another verse:

Eres flor, eres hermosa, /eres perfumada rosa /que ha nacido para mi. Acerca tu pecho al mio /y abrazame, que hace frio, /y asi sere mas feliz.
(You're a flower, you are beautiful /you're a perfumed rose /who was born for me. Hold your breast close to mine /and embrace me because it's cold, /and I will be happier.)

The proud girl from Angostura strolled around the town square, mixing with people and properly chaperoned. Her boyfriend's men would clear the way when he wanted to dance. The couple, like the song says, appeared happy.

With all this security, the party should have been a success. Suddenly, from one side of the plaza, a man fired off a round, but El Chapo's guards simply calmed him down. No fighting, those were their orders. That clueless person who tried to take a photograph was simply deprived of his camera. Afterwards, there was only the music and the noise associated with any big town dance.

Of course, Emma's parents were there: Blanca Estela Aispuro Aispuro and Ines Coronel Barrera. In La Angostura, Ines was officially a cattleman, although those who know him know that his real strength is growing marijuana and amapola (opium poppies).

Emma announced her wedding that day and, all during the dance, Coronel Barrera could not hide his pride at being related to such a powerful boss.

There were few, but notorious, people. Some of the attendees say they recognized the former Sinaloa Attorney General, Alfredo Higuera Bernal, and the mayor of Canelas, Francisco Cardenas Gamboa, a PAN loyalist whose term ended August 31 and whose presence was explained with two versions: he was forced to attend, or, he is simply another member of El Chapo's organization.

  4. WOW. What a great article un vato! There were so many details involved, it was like reading a novel. It's frightening to me the amount of money,power and corruption El Capo has. To be able to close a town down and throw a huge party, when you are on "THE MOST WANTED" list ( in at least 2 countries) is mind blowing. No wonder he and his amigos haven't been killed or arrested by now. Thanks to all of you at BB for the awesome reporting you do daily. Peace to all, Texas Grandma.

  6. The wedding of Chapo Guzman and his country mora Emma Coronel was akin to royal nuptial: the king of narco marrying his 18 yr. old narco princess. The description of his security detail was fit for a king or heads of state. There is no doubt that Chapo's men are ready to go war for their capo if their was an attempt at capture or a shootout with rivals. With no shortage of Kalishnikovs and other weaponary, it will not be a walk on the park for anybody the catch him, even for three squads of U.S. special forces. The question arises. Will Chapo, since he walks around with AKs and AR-15s, go out with a bang, like Escobar, Arturo B.L., and Tony Tormenta, or will he just throw up his hands like his father-in-law and surrender? We might not never get to know the answer to that question. Emma Coronel Guzman is in line to ingerit a lot of money if something were to happen to El Señor de la Montana JGL.

  7. so the man got married and paid the politicians to not say a word and hired military for protection. No violence was involved let's move on. I just think in order to capture el chapo they have to go for his inner circle first..simply going after him its not going to happened too many walls of defense to knock down before getting to him.

  22. U.S.Navy Seals, Delta Force, and C.I.A. special forces backed up by lethal Apache helicopters
    can definitely catch Chapo; however, with the amount of sicarios JAGL has, it will probably come at a price of blood paid by some of the U.S. personnel. That wont happen anytime soon though, to many protecting the la Tuna, Badiraguato native. The political will is not there yet.

The soldier killed in Somalia were Army Rangers not special forces, North Vietnam was backed up by communist China and Russia, none of these countries are going to help México, Please quit talking about the US military, if you did not served STFU! Chapo as any other cartel boss is an asshole, when he gets caught he is going to be crying like the bitch he is. You all keep talking about SF, Delta Forces Rangers like if you know a lot about special operations, when you don't even know what it takes to 'shoulder your share of the task' please stick about what this comment is al about, just some punk ass killer like Mamito and z40 brother and leave the US military out of it.

    3. Just because your a Navy Seals, Delta Force, or CIA special ops does'nt mean you can't get killed. The objective of any military operation is to meet your objective and do so with the minimum of casualties for your group; moreover, that the body count of your side be less than the enemy, whether it be some casualties or none. That is an inherent risk of being a soldier. I don't care how strong your military is, your going to take casualties. But to say U.S. special forces can't capture Chapo Guzman, the leader of a criminal organization, is not realistic. SeMar naval infantry killed Tony Tormenta even with his Escorpiones and hundreds of Gulf cartel sicarios, and the losa of element of the Mx. Marine death.

Black water IS NOT a special forces unit, is a civilian security company that has been under investigation by the US and Iraqi governments on charges of murdering civilians in Iraq, already has changed its name so Black Water ceased to exist more than 4 years ago.

  34. Yes the US Military could capture or kill Senior Guzman. But it will never happen in a sovereign nation such as Mexico. US Military/Government involvement is by the Mexican Government's request/invitation. Material support, intelligence support, technological support is all that will ever be given as Mexico does not want armed American involvement or presence on it soil. And yes, Delta Force troopers fought and died along side US Army Rangers in Somalia during the Battle of the Black Sea. Two were my friends, MOH (posthumous) Randy and Gordon.

  36. Medal of Honor citation [edit]
    Citation:
    Master Sergeant Gordon, United States Army, distinguished himself by actions above and beyond the call of duty on 3 October 1993, while serving as Sniper Team Leader, United States Army Special Operations Command with Task Force Ranger in Mogadishu, Somalia. Master Sergeant Gordon's sniper team provided precision fire from the lead helicopter during an assault and at two helicopter crash sites, while subjected to intense automatic weapons and rocket propelled grenade fires. When Master Sergeant Gordon learned that ground forces were not immediately available to secure the second crash site, he and another sniper unhesitatingly volunteered to be inserted to protect the four critically wounded personnel, despite being well aware of the growing number of enemy personnel closing in on the site. After his third request to be inserted, Master Sergeant Gordon received permission to perform his volunteer mission. When debris and enemy ground fires at the site caused them to abort the first attempt, Master Sergeant Gordon was inserted one hundred meters south of the crash site. Equipped with only his sniper rifle and a pistol, Master Sergeant Gordon and his fellow sniper, while under intense small arms fire from the enemy, fought their way through a dense maze of shanties and shacks to reach the critically injured crew members. Master Sergeant Gordon immediately pulled the pilot and the other crew members from the aircraft, establishing a perimeter which placed him and his fellow sniper in the most vulnerable position. Master Sergeant Gordon used his long range rifle and side arm to kill an undetermined number of attackers until he depleted his ammunition. Master Sergeant Gordon then went back to the wreckage, recovering some of the crew's weapons and ammunition. Despite the fact that he was critically low on ammunition, he provided some of it to the dazed pilot and then radioed for help. Master Sergeant Gordon continued to travel the perimeter, protecting the downed crew. After his team member was fatally wounded and his own rifle ammunition exhausted, Master Sergeant Gordon returned to the wreckage, recovering a rifle with the last five rounds of ammunition and gave it to the pilot with the words, "good luck." Then, armed only with his pistol, Master Sergeant Gordon continued to fight until he was fatally wounded. His actions saved the pilot's life. In total 50 Somalian bodies were found at the location. Master Sergeant Gordon's extraordinary heroism and devotion to duty were in keeping with the highest standards of military service and reflect great credit upon him, his unit and the United States Army.[9]

  37. With that all said, the US will not throw itself in to another "no win" war. Somalia was bad, Iraq and Afghanistan have had debatable outcomes. The drug war in Mexico will end when the good, hard working people are tired of living under the control of a corrupt Government, and the daily threats of the Drug Cartels. It will not be easy to end the violence given American's limitless consumption of the illegal drugs coming from the Cartels. A great deal of Mexico's cash flow (estimated to be upwards of 70%) comes from the drug trade, and that will not be easy to replace with legitimate income. Mexico has vast untapped resources, and will need to develop these assets to move forward into a crime free economy. Easier said than done. Men like Senior Guzman are Rock Stars in the eyes of many Mexicans, due to the vast amounts of money they bring into the Mexican populace.
