Joaquín Guzmán Loera
One of the world's most wanted men, "El Chapo," or "Shorty," heads the Sinaloa cartel, a top drug trafficking syndicate. In 1993 he was arrested in Mexico on homicide and drug charges. He escaped from federal prison in 2001, reportedly through the laundry, and quickly regained control of his drug-trafficking organization, which he still controls today. The U.S. Government estimates Mexican and Colombian drug-trafficking organizations laundered between $18 billion and $39 billion in 2008 from U.S. Wholesale distribution proceeds; Guzmán and his operation likely grossed 20% of that.
