Drug lord El Chapo ‘tortured a rival until he fell unconscious’

REVEALED: Convicted drug lord El Chapo tied a rival to a chair, electrocuted him and pulled his teeth out until he fell unconscious – then had a doctor REVIVE him so he could continue to torture him

  • El Chapo ordered his rival Israel Rincon to be brutally tortured in 2010, unsealed court documents reveal
  • The drug lord, whose real name is Joaquin Guzman, reportedly had Rincon tied to a chair, where his teeth were pulled out and his ear was electrocuted
  • According to an informant, Rincon passed out from the pain before El Chapo told a doctor to revive him in order for the torture session to continue 
  • El Chapo, 62, was found guilty on 10 counts of drug trafficking in a New York court in February and will be formally sentenced next month 

Mexican drug lord El Chapo reportedly had a rival cartel member tortured until he fell unconscious before he ordered a doctor to revive the man just so he could continue to inflict more pain upon him. 

The shocking event allegedly occurred in 2010, but has only now been made public in newly released court documents.  

The brutality was witnessed by an unnamed cooperator who relayed the story to investigators years later. 

According to the informant, El Chapo, whose real name is Joaquin Guzman, ordered his underlings to torture rival Israel Rincon in a garden outhouse. 

Rincon was tied to chair, where he had his ear electrocuted and his teeth pulled out, the cooperator told prosecutors. 

After enduring the torture for some time, Rincon reportedly passed out – but his pain wasn’t over.  

Convicted drug lord El Chapo, real name Joaquin Guzman, reportedly ordered the torture of his rival Israel Rincon back in 2010. El Chapo is pictured being extradited to the United States in early 2017 for his criminal trial

According to the court documents: ‘A doctor arrived shortly thereafter to revive Rincon so they could continue torturing him in a variety of ways’.

Rincon’s remains were later dumped in the Mexican city of Culiacán, the cooperator told cops.  

El Chapo is currently imprisoned at Manhattan’s Metropolitan Correctional Center after a jury found him guilty in February on 10 counts of drug trafficking.

Jurors heard that El Chapo and his murderous Sinaloa drug cartel made billions in profits by smuggling tons of cocaine, heroin, meth and marijuana into the U.S.

The evidence against him covered a 25-year period from January 1989 until December 2014. 

New claims of torture aren't surprising for those who have followed the trial of the drug kingpin. He is pictured in a courtroom sketch from his criminal trial earlier this year

‘The success of the Sinaloa Cartel relied upon the use of violence to maintain their power throughout the region and beyond,’ authorities said. 

‘Numerous co-conspirators testified that El Chapo directed his hitmen to kidnap, interrogate, torture and shoot members of rival drug organizations, at times carrying out acts of violence himself.’

One witness testified that El Chapo beat two men with a branch until their bodies ‘were like rag dolls,’ before shooting them and ordering them to be tossed onto a bonfire. 

The former hitman also testified that the drug lord interrogated a rival drug cartel member, shot him and ordered that he be buried alive, the Justice Department said.            

El Chapo is due to be formally sentenced next month.
