Mexican Drug Lords’ Kids Reportedly Bragging About Wealth on Social Media

MEXICO CITY – The Twitter and Facebook accounts of individuals presumed to be the children of Sinaloa drug cartel bosses Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman and Ismael “El Mayo” Zambada boast photographs of possessions, including automobiles, firearms and animals, as well as comments about their exploits, Mexican media reports said.

Investigators are trying to confirm the authenticity of the posts, the Mexico City daily El Universal reported, citing Attorney General’s Office representatives.

The photos and comments must be dealt with cautiously “since any person can post profiles or images; nevertheless, it has not been ruled out that the narcos’ kids did it,” AG’s office spokesmen told the newspaper.

El Universal published samples of the content posted on the social media sites under the names of Alfredo Guzman and Ivan Guzman Salazar, presumed to be the sons of Chapo Guzman, and Serafin Zambada, one of the sons of El Mayo Zambada.

Serafin Zambada was arrested last week in Nogales, Arizona, by U.S. authorities.

The 23-year-old Serafin Zambada had the most extensive social media presence, even posting a photograph of himself with soccer star Cuauhtemoc Blanco, who denied he knew the drug lord’s son.

“I have nothing to say, any bastard can take photos, I don’t even know him,” the soccer star said.

The person claiming to be Serafin Zambada also posted photos on Twitter of luxury watches, SUVs, automobiles, gold-plated firearms, bags of marijuana, a lion and a cheetah in the window of an SUV.

The Facebook page of Serafin Zambada has photos of the executions of suspected informants and images of Sinaloa cartel members showing off their large-caliber weapons.

The Sinaloa cartel, sometimes referred to by officials as the Pacific cartel, is the oldest drug cartel in Mexico and Chapo Guzman, considered extremely violent, is one of the most-wanted criminals in Mexico and the United States, where the Drug Enforcement Administration has offered a reward of $5 million for him.

The Sinaloa organization, according to intelligence agencies, is a transnational business empire that operates in the United States, Western Europe, Eastern Europe, the Americas and Asia.
