El Chapo Trial: Emma sits stone-faced as Damaso Lopez Nunez implicates her in tunnel escape

Chivis Martinez Borderland Beat


Damaso Nunez Lopez continues his testimony today.  He may be the last government witness.

Altiplano Tunnel Escape of 2015

Damaso gave his version this morning of Chapo’s infamous 1.5 km tunnel escape from Altiplano.  Previous to the escape by the capo, no one had ever successfully escaped from the prison, Mexico’s first Max prison facility.

According to Damaso’s testimony, Emma played an integral role in the coordination and passing of messages in preparations of the escape.

 The top 3 Altiplano officials were all fired.  They were later arrested. The escape could not have transpired without the help of officials, as it was inmates were complaining about the noise during construction and excavation, which took months.

According to Damaso, A GPS watch was given to Chapo to wear inside the prison, which they used to pinpoints the shower area when Chapo would wear it.

2 dozen persons including 7 top officials were arrested for complicity in the escape.

Damaso says Chapo's sons were those who procured the land near the tunnel which under lay the tunnel.

The tunnel motorcycle was driven by Emma’s brother, so says Damaso. It was mounted on a make shift pulley system. They took Emma’s brother from the exit of the tunnel to a warehouse close by on an ATV. He then boarded a small plane and flew to the Sierras.

During this testimony, Emma sat without expression, fidgeting with her hair. Damaso described her as having repeated meetings with him and Chapo's sons to plot the escape.

Damaso said that after Chapo was recaptured, he was plotting a second tunnel escape with the help of Emma and his sons, which Damaso says the prison director who was bribed did not help him transfer back to Altiplano.

Note: This may not be completely true.  The director was fired and arrested.  Chapo appealed to the court for a transfer from Juarez to Altiplano and won the transfer.  That is why he asked if he was being taken to Altiplano when awaken to extradite to the U.S.

Of the two-dozen arrested for complicity in the escape, 1 or 2 remain. 

And the top officials, including the director were released.

Mexico does not look harshly of prison escapes.  The exception is if someone is harmed in the process.  And the prisoner is not held liable, as it is not unlawful to escape.  It is considered a natural instinct.

Damaso implicated Emma in another prison break plan. This was after he was captured and sent back to Altiplano.  It was at that prison he filed numerous complaints and human rights abuses.


The plan was aborted says Damaso, when Chapo was transferred to Juarez.

  1. so the US govt knew this beforehand and that's why she wasn't allowed to visit him?! remember they claimed to be afraid she's help him escape and so many people thought they were exaggerating/paranoid...makes sense now! though I do think she wouldn't have done that here in the US lol

    4. Alcatraz was the supermax prison of its day. Sitting on a rock. Now I fully comprehend that the technology we have today leaves no comparison. What I am saying is that if there were another escape attempt, it might not involve tunneling through rock. That aside, chapo would need staff complicit in his plans which would be impossible because the system is less corrupt. Staff know full well they would merely be changing sides of the cell door, never to be let out again.

    5. He can make staff do as he want's using the tactics of cartel..they can make a man or woman do as they please when the family is on the knees at gun point.they make pepole in prison commit suicide with no more than a phone call expressing this.

    6. US citizens are stupid as fuck. The arrogance to think that your prisons have ever held anyone close to Chapo's calibre before. Chapo has a near infinite supply of money, of manpower and of influence. He will get out if he needs to. But I think he will be running Sinaloa from inside prison. My point is: You morons have never seen what someone that wealthy can achieve in an American supermax. You will be surprised to say the least, if the truth ever comes out of his operations in there.

    2. Emma will not be prosecuted.
      She would have been instructed by lawyers if a potential danger of indictment was inevitable.
      As for Mexico, well that's a total different story. Mexico is so corrupt that anyone can get away just about anything.

      Delete
  5. This story means nothing of course. If Emma had anything to do with Chapos escape she did this in foreing soil.
    All these stories about her are just distractions also trying to take away from the real culprits story - Chapo. Slow news days

    1. maybe it's a way of playing with the jury too. until now the news have always portrayed her as the one who's there for him through it all (which i guess we can say is true)... like a devoted wife who would not be so adamant to defend her man if she wasn't sure he's a great man and dad...another reason why her daughters came to court, too. i was unaware that minors could be present during a federal trial, and then the latest stunt she pulled of matching clothes supposedly by coincidence but we know that was planned. Now by the prosecutors implicating her they're probably hoping the jury sees her differently. or some shit. i might be putting too much thought into it but that's what made the most sense imo

  6. Wasn’t Damaso who helped him escape from Puente Grande? Why implicate his wife? You’re already giving the Gov’t what they want, Chapo...he’s got a lot of snitching on him.

    1. We can dispense with the snitching B.S.? The cooperating witnesses are just playing the game. Chapo knows this. When Damaso an others have taken the stand they've given Chapo a nod and motioned to him in a respectful way. He knows the game. He knows when you get caught and there is no way out you do what you can to save yourself, or in the case of Damaso... attempt to limit the sentence and charges that his son will face. The same goes for El Mayo and Vincente's testimony against Chapo. They don't consider this snitching. They are doing what they have to do and if Chapo was in a situation where being a cooperating witness would help him... he would do it too. But he knows he's done so that isn't an option. The witnesses that are cooperating after being apprehended and arrested are just doing what they think they need to do to either A) Limit their own jail time or B) Protect their family. Chapo isn't looking at Damaso as a snitch. He knows the game. Commenters on Borderland Beat on the other hand typically do not.

    2. 11:55 thats the stupidest shit i ever heard, if being a "cooperating witness" to limit your own jail time isnt snitching they wtf is??? ALL those guys are snitching, there's no excuse, don't do the crime if you can't do the fuckin time straight up. There's other drug lords who are sitting in american prisons who straight up have told the justice system FUCK YOU, and now they will rot in jail for multiple life sentences + time on top.

      Delete
    3. 11:55 I would agree with you on this considering that the majority of the CW's gave information that was already known, and if it wasn't known it was of little value. In the case of the Twins, the IT guy and Damaso I see it differently. The Twins set him up and started cooperating with the feds along with the Colombian tech guy. Theyre rats and snitches. Damaso is a snitch and a snake because he's implicating people that aren't caught yet or off the radar and he tried killing his compadres kids. Other than that I think you're pretty spot on.

      Delete
    4. ^right on the money. Chapo knows Damaso probably got where he was at because menores went after him. Damaso is just firing back. Menores still sorta run things. Damaso and chapo both in prison. Ninguno de los dos sale ganando

      Delete
    5. I agree except I think Chapo does consider it a betrayal because he has no empathy for anyone's situation. If he could, he would surely murder those witnesses for their testimonies IMO.

      Delete
    6. I tend to agree with you about the guys at the top knowing "the game". Now it is about damage control and all the actors (includes DEA, CIA, FBI, Interpol, Federales, politicians, and even the Church, etc) with skin in the game understand the "game".) It is "we" smucks that really have little or no idea what scripts are being played out in this game.

    8. 11:55- you nailed it. That's absolutely right!

    9. 1155 is right on. The no snitching mentality is for low level gangsters. It's a hood thing. Real upper level intl traffickers don't care about it. They're about long term survival, and rhey know it'll end w jail or death, and if testifying avoids that fate, they'll do it

    2. the journalist Emily mentioned that the IG page that she supposedly didn't run had uploaded pics of Christmas celebrations and all that kind of stuff. Did u see this page Chivis? Emily also added it had been deleted when she had just returned to NY.

      Do you think the US investigated where this IG profile came from?

    3. The more that comes out about Emma's involvement and the more it comes out how much data the Feds have in the form of taped phone calls and text messages... if I were Emma i'd be thinking about going back to Mexico and staying put. From what i've seen if they wanted to build a case against her they likely have more than enough to do so.

  12. Your have the best coverage out there. The summaries are much easier to follow. and I appreciate the extras for a newbie like me. I heard about you from keegan's (vice) twitter. Borderland Beat is a great blog to get solid information.

    1. well....lets say they do the best to their knowledge. they have to google historical facts, we don't. so it is easy for me to add into a summary. i think that makes us different. Keegan and alan work hard and i give them both a B+. some errors on fact are evident.

      mexico is not that interested in the trial. i was going to write a post about that. you won't find a million posts and strong front page coverage unless it is new info. My little poll of 86 mexican nationals say only 15 were strongly following the trial.

If she is wise in managing and "guarding" this wealth there will be whole family dynasties underpinned by that criminal genius "Shorty" Guzman. I bet politicians, bankers, lawyers worldwide are just drooling at the possibilities to get close to Emma and offer their consolations and services.

      Historically, sometimes dirty money is like shit is like fertilizer for growing good crops. Hopefully, maybe the world will get some good back for all the misery narco money causes the world.

I wouldn't advise my lawyers to put out there that the witness and my kids were fighting over the control of the cartel, or that fraction of the cartel. His son is on the DEA most wanted fugitives... they'd use that later on, right?

    1. I don't get why Emma gets so much crap on here. She probably had very little choice in the marriage and probably has very little choice in everything going on now. What do you think would have happened if she refused to marry El Chapo or refused to support him during his current trial?

      She is a victim of circumstances more than anything.

      Delete
    2. Little choice in the marriage? As attractive as she is, she had many suitors before her “Quincenera” yet chose to be with, and marry a Drug Lord. Hot Chicks like money. It’s rare to see a “pobre” with a hot chick. She is not a victim and is perhaps an accomplice. Stay tuned for potential charges of conspiracy, lying, accessory, money laundering and more.
