It has been 16 years since the murder of Edgar Guzman, son of El Chapo, and as every year his cenotaph was decorated with red and white roses.
Located in the parking lot of a commercial plaza in the 6 de Enero neighborhood in Culiacan, the space dedicated to the son of the drug trafficker imprisoned in the United States and sentenced to life imprisonment, sports a simple arrangement with red and white roses, and two huge letters E and G.
The cross was decorated with white roses and red flowers in the center.
With a red base of different flowers and red and white foliage.
The drug trafficker’s son lost his life after being attacked by armed men while he was in a shopping center in the Tres Ríos Urban Development. His widow, Frida Muñoz Román, identified the body.
The cause of the attack was attributed to the struggle between the Sinaloa Cartel and the Beltrán Leyva Cartel.
