Chapo and Emma: A Wedding in Durango

Borderland Beat Archives posted by Vato

This is a repost I that was suggested it as a repost by a reader.  In case you missed it the first time or want to re-read.

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, 18, the wife of Joaquin Guzman Loera, whom she married in 2007 in the town of Angostura, Canelas County, Durango.

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.

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.  
Chapo's Father in Law
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,

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".

    2. Apparently La Barbie and him started a hunger strike to due to the way they are treated inside the prison. Also due to the rotten food they are being fed, and no medical service being provided to them

  5. I absolutely love this idea. I follow BB everyday and frequently post on the forum. Ive actually thought about starting a classic repost thread numerous times during slow news weeks. There are so many great articles, and stories in the BB archive.
    People don't realize what their missing, and much of the past info still pertains today. From the TJ series to the story about the young female sicaria in Juarez, and even Talibans war with Z40. There are some absolute classics that shouldn't be forgotten, and I hope BB continues to repost them for others to enjoy. Keep up the great work!

  14. 50 billion reasons why the love story between chalk and Emma would fill her parents with pride. His kids and his kids' kids won't have to worry about where their next meal will come from their rest of their lives. Who knows, maybe Chapo will be released on some technicality by corrupt judge and be able to enjoy his billions just like el R-1
    is doing now. After all, he is in Mexico. Con dinero baile el perro! Money talks, bullshit walks!

  16. Chapo's time came and went. 200 armed men lets see versus a MQ-9 reaper. I'll bet my money on the reaper. You can't shoot what you can't see my friends.

    The drones are capable of flying for up to 24 hours while carrying a deadly payload. They can fly 7 miles above the earths surface so high in fact you wont hear it. Missiles speeds exceed 1000mph and can hit moving targets up to 70mph.

    Used in mexico on a daily basis the cartel would not be celebrating anymore in large groups.

  18. Chapo had style and charisma you have to give him that. He was a true narco at the end of the day he has fallen but he won't be forgotten and his sons are still pushing the white power north along with the rest of CDS. At least he didn't extort or aim to kill innocents.

    A Laredo city councilman was arrested Friday by police on a felony drug charge after cocaine was allegedly found in his vehicle earlier this week.

    Laredo police charged Jorge Vera, who was elected to office in 2012, with possession of a controlled substance and filing a false report.

    He turned himself in at Laredo Police Department headquarters late Friday afternoon.

  20. the queens of beauty tournaments have become investment opportunity for narcs big and small, from donald trump buying beauty contests, to emma coronel's daddy, colombian, venezuelan, brazilian and reptilian to bailando por un sueños, all of it is corrupt and narco- prostitution business, so why pick on emma? while it's not very edificant at her daddy went along with the charade, at least she was not kidnapped like pancho rafail arellano's beauty queen wife, or like z40's nephew's murdered gabacha, murdered for being too pretty, name is el kiko?

  22. @ 1:55 AM he didn't kill as many innocents as other cartels but he had no problem killing innocents if he felt it was necessary. That means he'd kill you or me in a second if he felt we were in the way of his business.

    Some of his sons are still out there (for now) but lets not forget what happened to Edgar Guzman Lopez, who was not involved in the drug trade.

  23. I say they should've whacked this bitch when they arrested Chapo in that hotel room.

  24. Yeah very true. If he felt that innocents must be killed he'd kill them. It all goes back to the principles he grew up on - family/friends first anyone else doesn't matter. I always saw him as more of a product of his environment instead of being a killer however I'm not saying he did good things.
