Guzmán Loera is isolated from other inmates and is in a 24-hour watch in a secured cell block near an Altiplano prison administration section.
The TDN posted on its website that the federal Mexican government was investigating the crime scene at the Altiplano federal prison where El Chapo's body was discovered on early Monday.
The Zetas were being blamed for his alleged homicide. El Chapo's death went viral, but has now been confirmed by Manjarrez it was a false report by TDN.
Guzmán Loera was attributed for the demise of Los Zetas, according to intelligence. He provided key names to the DEA and Mexican federal law enforcement agencies to help break a Zeta stronghold in Mexico-U.S. border towns that managed major multi-million drug routes in competition with the Sinaloa Cartel.
Last Saturday, Emma Coronel, 24, and her two 2-year-old daughter's were with Sinaloa Cartel druglord Guzmán Loera when he was taken into custody on Saturday at the Miramar Hotel room 401 in Mazatlán, according to Mexican federal authorities. Coronel was not taken into custody or her babysitter who was also in the room when Mexican Marines broke into the room to take Guzmán Loera into custody.
Mexico doesn't charge people or family members for aiding and abetting or hiding a felon as in the U.S.. The U.S. government is seeking extradition for Guzmán Loera for federal charges stemming from drug trafficking, murder, conspiracy and money laundering.
A former head of the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) in El Paso, Texas, Phil Jordan told Univision that he had seen intelligence that confirmed Guzmán Loera had contributed large sums of money to President elect Enrique Peña Nieto's campaign and that he was surprised that Nieto's PRI Party would allow his capture. Jordan could produce any evidence, but admitted that documents of intelligence from the DEA showed that El Chapo did in fact contributed to the PRI Party to elect Neito. Did El Chapo attempt to buy his protection from being extradited to the U.S. and will Neito keep him a Mexican prison?
Alfredo Guzmán's Twitter account posting says, that all the Mexican government officials that El Chapo bought will pay for turning against his father. Alfredo's Twitter has not been confirmed, if in fact it is administered by El Chapo's actual son.
Nieto has not publicly denied the allegation made by Jordan. The PRI Party has not determined, if Guzmán Loera actually donated funds to Neito's campaign or whether the funds would be returned to El Chapo.
