Daniel Linskey Discusses "El Chapo" Recapture With Fox 25

Dan Linskey, Managing Director at Kroll’s Investigations and Disputes practice in Boston, sat down with Fox 25’s reporter Crystal Haynes to watch the capture, escape and recapture of Mexican drug lord, Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman.

Linskey, the former Boston Police chief, shared his knowledge of the “El Chapo” case with Fox 25. "The entire case started with a Boston police detective and an FBI agent in the Boston office. The detective had developed an informant and had convinced the informant to go forward and to work in an undercover capacity with him," Linskey explained.

Linskey acknowledged that Guzman’s initial arrest remains a testament to the work of local and international authorities, coordinating operations on both sides of the border. Six months after breaking out of Mexico's top maximum security prison, Guzman was captured for a second time. "It culminated with the delivery of 2,000 kilos of cocaine to Spanish authorities and the arrest of El Chapo's leadership team and eventually his indictment," Linskey said.

The last escape appears to have Mexican authorities changing their minds on their 2014 decision to refuse Guzman's extradition. A Mexican federal law enforcement official tells the Associated Press that the country is now willing to send him to the United States to face prosecution.

Linskey said that there is an indictment against him in New Hampshire. However, it all comes down to where he is kept in custody, with pressure higher than ever to make sure El Chapo stays locked up for good.
