Dressing room conversation could solve 1964 murder of police informant

Dressing room conversation could solve 1964 murder of police informant A football dressing room conversation could be the key to solving the cold case murder of a Queensland police informant more than five decades ago. Vincent Raymond Allen was last seen on Grafton Street in Warwick, about 130km south-west of Brisbane, on the afternoon of April 18, 1964. The labourer had been assisting police who were investigating the break and enters of two jewellery stores in the area. © Nine News After Mr Allen disappeared, the charges against the suspects were dropped as he was unable to give evidence.

Throughout his long and bloody career, the drug kingpin known as El Chapo has proved to be a master of escape, breaking out of two Mexican prisons to continue his reign leading the Sinaloa cartel.

Jeffrey Epstein -- inmate 76318-054 -- just moved in. The hulking Metropolitan Correctional Center in Lower Manhattan is several miles and worlds away from the mansion near Central Park that Epstein may have been planning to head for when he was arrested by the FBI after touching down at Teterboro Airport in New Jersey on July 6. Among his new neighbors is the Mexican drug lord Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman, who has been holed up in the federal jail’s notorious 10 South wing for more than two years.

Within hours of being sentenced to life in prison on Wednesday, the notorious Mexican crime lord, Joaquín Guzmán Loera, was whisked away from a federal jail in Manhattan and transferred to an undisclosed location, his lawyers said.

On Thursday, federal prison officials would not say where he had been taken, and even his lawyers had yet to be informed of his whereabouts. They expect he will end up at the nation’s most forbidding federal prison, the United States Penitentiary Administrative Maximum Facility, or ADX, in Florence, Colo.

El Chapo Sentenced to Life in Prison, Ending Notorious Criminal Career

El Chapo Sentenced to Life in Prison, Ending Notorious Criminal Career [What you need to know to start the day: Get New York Today in your inbox.] Joaquín Guzmán Loera, the Mexican drug lord known as El Chapo, was sentenced on Wednesday to life in prison, ending one of modern history’s most brutal and notorious criminal careers. 

The intense secrecy surrounding Mr. Guzmán’s transfer to another prison reflected the anxiety over his Houdini-like ability to engineer escapes in the past and the deep financial resources at the disposal of the cartel. (Prosecutors say a “conservative” estimate of Mr. Guzmán’s career earnings is about $12.7 billion.)

Mr. Guzmán was last seen being escorted from Federal District Court in Brooklyn by United States marshals at about 10:20 a.m. on Wednesday, after Judge Brian M. Cogan sentenced him to life in prison plus 30 years on murder, drug and money laundering charges.

Hours later, one of his lawyers, Mariel Colón Miró, attempted to visit Mr. Guzmán at the Metropolitan Correctional Center in Manhattan, where he was taken in 2017 after being extradited from Mexico, and was told he was no longer in custody of the jail, she said.

When Ms. Colón contacted the jail, she was told that Mr. Guzmán had been taken to an airport for transport elsewhere, Ms. Colón said.

A spokeswoman at the Metropolitan Correctional Center would not say on Thursday if Mr. Guzmán was still in its custody, and said she could not locate records of his whereabouts. A spokesman for the United States attorney’s office in Brooklyn also declined to say where Mr. Guzmán had been taken, stating that the information was classified.

Information about Mr. Guzmán’s location was not available on the federal Bureau of Prisons website. In a statement on Thursday afternoon, the bureau said it could not reveal Mr. Guzmán’s location until he had arrived at a facility, adding it had “no additional information to provide.”

On Wednesday, Judge Cogan did not specify where Mr. Guzmán would serve his sentence, but one of his lawyers, Jeffrey Lichtman, said he understood his client would be housed at the ADX in Colorado.

Also known as the Alcatraz of the Rockies, the ADX, where inmates spend 23 hours a day inside their cells, is reputed to be an escape-proof fortress.

Lawyer: El Chapo was whisked away within hours of sentencing

Lawyer: El Chapo was whisked away within hours of sentencing NEW YORK (AP) — Only hours after receiving a life sentence, convicted Mexican drug lord Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman was forced to make a sudden departure to the highest-security prison in the U.S. to serve the term, his lawyer said Thursday. The

Officials at the ADX, located on a barren stretch of desert 40 miles south of Colorado Springs, did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

At his sentencing, Mr. Guzmán’s lawyers asked that he be allowed to remain in custody in New York City for 60 days while they prepared an appeal.

During the trial, Mr. Guzmán had been housed in the maximum security wing of the federal jail in Lower Manhattan, kept in isolation and denied nearly all visits except those from his lawyers and his young twin daughters. He had complained previously about conditions there, and at his sentencing he called his confinement at the prison “psychological, emotional and mental torture 24 hours a day.”

Federal prosecutors did not object yesterday to the request to keep Mr. Guzmán in Manhattan, but Judge Cogan told both parties that he would leave the decision to the Bureau of Prisons and the United States Marshals Service.

The Marshals Service confirmed this afternoon that Mr. Guzmán is in custody, but did not provide further information. The Bureau of Prison’s online inmate locator did not provide any information about Mr. Guzmán, and the Marshals Service said it would be updated “upon his arrival at a designated BOP facility.”

If Mr. Guzmán were to end up at ADX, he would be one of a number of prominent criminals housed in the facility’s 500 cells, which are made of poured concrete and are intended to be impossible to escape.

Among those housed there are Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, who is awaiting execution for his role in the Boston Marathon bombings; Terry L. Nichols, an accomplice to the Oklahoma City bombing; Theodore J. Kaczynski, the so-called Unabomber; and Robert P. Hanssen, an F.B.I. agent who spied for Russia.

Mr. Guzmán did manage to escape from a concrete cell once before. In his most infamous escape — coordinated by his wife, according to testimony at his trial — Mr. Guzmán climbed through a mile-long tunnel his underlings had dug underneath the prison walls into a shower in his cell.

According to testimony, prisoners at the maximum-security prison in Almoloya, Mexico, complained of the noise of crunching concrete, as cartel associates hollowed out the tunnel, which was lighted and ventilated and had a motorcycle awaiting to speed his escape. When Mr. Guzmán emerged, his brother-in-law was waiting for him with an all-terrain vehicle, which they rode to an airstrip.
