El Chapo’s wife is accused of conspiracy to distribute cocaine, methamphetamine, heroin and marijuana in the United States. Mike Vigil, former head of the international operations division of the US Drug Enforcement Administration, said Coronel “has been involved in the drug trade since she was a little girl. She knows the inner workings of the Sinaloa cartel. ” According to him, the drug lord’s wife may be inclined to cooperate. “She has great motivation and these are her twins,” said Mr. Vigil.
