El Chapo Sentencing: An Epic Criminal Career Nears Its Final Chapter When Joaquín Guzmán Loera, the Mexican drug lord known as El Chapo, walks into court on Wednesday and is sentenced, by law, to life in prison, it will likely close the book on a criminal career unparalleled in its scope and celebrity since Al Capone’s.

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.

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.

Trial of 'El Chapo': rare glimpse inside the drug world

Trial of 'El Chapo': rare glimpse inside the drug world The trial of Mexican drug lord Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman provided a rare and terrifying look into the workings of one of the world's largest cartels. Over the space of nearly three months, a New York jury heard 56 government witnesses deliver dramatic evidence against Guzman. According to the witnesses, the Sinaloa cartel, of which Guzman was a co-leader, flooded the United States with cocaine with the blessing of countless police, military officers and Mexican officials -- going all the way up to the president -- who turned their heads in exchange for bribes worth millions.

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.)

His cell had been under 24-hour video surveillance but he disappeared in a blind spot at the shower intended to protect inmate privacy.

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.

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.

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.”

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.

Less than 10 days after Vatican officials said they found no evidence that the daughter of an employee who disappeared 36 years ago had been buried in a cemetery inside Vatican City, a new foray there unearthed two ossuaries Saturday that contained unidentified human bones. Whether any of them belonged to the girl, Emanuela Orlandi, who disappeared at age 15 in 1983, was not possible to say immediately.
