Emma Coronel Aispuro, 31, a former beauty pageant winner and wife of Mexican drug lord Joaquin El Chapo Guzman, was arrested Monday at Washington International Airport on suspicion of plotting to assassinate .

Coronel Aispuro, a dual Mexican and American citizen, is expected to appear in federal court today. Her husband, co-founder of the Sinaloa cartel, long considered the most powerful drug lord in the world, was sentenced in July 2019 to life in prison in the United States for drug trafficking. He is serving his sentence in a high security prison in Colorado.

The 31-year-old, 32 years younger than “El Tsapo”, is accused of being involved in a network that flooded the US market with substances, from cocaine to marijuana, passing through heroin and methamphetamines.

According to a lawsuit filed against her, she also allegedly participated in the extremely complicated operation for her husband to escape from a Mexican prison in July 2015, worthy of a Hollywood movie. To escape, “El Tsapo” dug a gallery of one and a half kilometers to his cell, equipped with rails and other means. The revelation of the details of the escape was a painful blow to the Mexican authorities.

The couple had twin girls, born in California (southern USA) in 2012.

The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) had undertaken to investigate the young woman, who attended almost all the hearings of her husband’s trial in 2019. US justice allows her minimal contact with her husband – has banned her from visiting him in prison, while it is also forbidden to talk on the phone.
