Iván, Jesús Alfredo and Ovidio are the most recognized names of the Guzmán dynasty, sons of drug trafficker Joaquín 'El Chapo' Guzmán Loera, sentenced to life imprisonment in the United States.
But there is another son of the famous drug trafficker, who away from the spotlight, has become a headache for U.S. authorities as Joaquin Guzman Lopez, is responsible for the distribution of cocaine, marijuana and methamphetamine from Mexico to the United States between 2008 and 2018.
Joaquín Guzmán López, alias 'El Güero', 'Moreno' or 'Güero Moreno', is the product of the relationship between 'El Chapo' Guzmán and Griselda Guadalupe López Pérez, the drug trafficker's second wife, who is also the mother of Ovidio Guzmán.
According to Mike Vigil, former director of Special Operations of the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), the advantage of Joaquin Jr. is his discretion, being less mediatic than his brothers, which is why, for at least 15 years, very little has been known about him.
According to DEA data, 'El Güero Moreno' is 36 years old and is said to be one of those in charge of the Sinaloa Cartel's business dealings with Colombian drug traffickers for the export and sale of drugs in the United States.
Joaquín Guzmán López would be integrated with 'Los Chapitos', as the Sinaloa Cartel cell made up of Guzmán Loera's sons is known, who are currently disputing the leadership of Ismael 'El Mayo' Zambada, who together with his father founded the criminal organization.
