El Chapo feeling sad and different after prison chiefs shaved his head

Notorious drug lord El Chapo Guzman is feeling "sad" and "different" in his supermax prison after prison chiefs shaved his head.

In July 2019, Guzman was sentenced to life in prison plus 30 years after a jury convicted him of drug trafficking and engaging in multiple murder conspiracies as a top leader of the Sinaloa Cartel, one of Mexico’s largest, most violent drug trafficking organisations.

He was sent to a "Supermax" prison in Colorado, USA, from which no one has ever escaped, given his penchant for escpaing jails in his native Mexico.

Guzman's attorneys Marc Fernich and Mariel Colón Miró visited Guzman at the supermax prison ADX in Florence, Colorado, known as the “Alcatraz of the Rockies."

Fernich said that El Chapo isn’t adjusting well to life in a supermax.

"Though he now gets outdoor exercise time, he doesn’t get many visits," he said. “He seemed sad, everything about him is different. His demeanor, his eyes, even his hair, they shaved his head.

"It doesn’t matter if you’ve been convicted of the most heinous crimes or horrible crimes, I don’t think that anybody deserves to be treated that way.”

Ms Colón Miró previously filed a request to allow him to outdoor privileges but the government responded by citing a 1981 escape attempt from a prison yard.

“Mr. Guzmán is strong minded,” she said. “If you’re not strong minded, it is definitely going to ruin you psychologically. It is torture in that prison."

Colón Miró added: “MCC is a very inhumane place, especially if you’re in the solitary housing unit.

“It is not a sanitary place. You can see rats walking around. It is nasty. Other clients have told me there’s mold on the water faucets, the AC is never clean. You can actually see the dust and mold.”
