"People are so scared" says Deputy Sanchez, unidentified in Today Show clip
A BB reader sent this video in from the Today Show. He/she commented that, “Of course being a US news source they don't mention the marines flew into the town shooting randomly and at 0:58 you see a somewhat familiar face described as "this woman".
Good eye, the "woman", is no other than Dep. Lucero Sanchez, who visited El Chapo in prison, using false documents and allegedly is one of his mistresses and his youngest baby’s mama.
She says in the video “the people are very scared”……
That aside, there was a notable offering in the report, according to Today , U.S. DEA agents are the reason why Mexican forces have flooded the sierra’s. They intercepted cellphone signals placing the capo at a specific ranch in the sierras on the Durango side.
When they raided the ranch, Chapo was gone leaving behind a cache of cell phones and clothing.
It has been reported that Chapo, along with Rafael Caro Quintaro and Isamel Zambada have a secure large region of land in the sierra’s that straddles Durango and Sinaloa states. They are said to uproot frequently to evade capture.
It was DEA cell phone interception, that also pinpointed Chapo in Culiacán and Mazatlán in February 2014, directly leading to his arrest.
