Edgar Valdez Villarreal, aka "La Barbie lost his long fight against extradition today when he along with 13 other narcos was sent to face justice in the United States. Planes transporting the suspects landed in Tucson for processing.
Cartel del Golfo (CDG) Capo Jorge Costilla Sanchez, known as "El Coss," was also extradited.
Another extradited person in the group is Jose Emanuel Garcia Sota, who is charged in the 2011 killing of ICE agent Jaime Zapata in San Luis Potosi.
Early reports indicate a number of those extradited were from the Federal Social Readaptation Center No. 1 "Altiplano" maximum prison now defamed since Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman successfully tunneled his way out of the prison, the first successful escape in it’s history. Speculation is that the mass extradition resulted from the escape.
El Barbie was arrested in 2010, he faces multiple charges in Georgia, Texas and Louisiana.
