Drug lord formally regains Chicago Public Enemy No 1 title

Jul 15, 2015

The head of a crime-fighting body that's restored Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman's title as Chicago's Public Enemy No. 1 is "outraged" at the reputed drug lord's escape from a Mexican prison.

The Chicago Crime Commission Tuesday formally restored the label days after Guzman slipped from a maximum-security facility through a mile-long tunnel.

The non-government group first named Guzman Public Enemy No. 1 in 2013 to highlight how his Sinaloa cartel dominates Chicago's drug trade. His hold on the title lapsed after his 2014 capture.
