It has gotten personal for Jack Riley, the DEA’s No. 2 official.

“Just so you now, I was going to retire – until this dick escaped,” Riley told Yahoo News.

Now, he said, “I’m in it for the long haul.”

Riley was one of the targets of Guzman’s murderous trafficking organization.

Guzman escaped from prison three months ago through a mile-long tunnel and hasn’t been seen since.

A newly released video shows the stunning prison escape by Mexican drug kingpin Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman and the incredibly sophisticated mile-long tunnel that served as his escape route.

His escape triggered a $3.8 million reward for his.

The video depicts a complicated tunnel complete with PVC pipes, ventilation, a bike for transportation and an escape route with emergency supplies.

Authorities fear Guzman may be hard to find. In 2001, he escaped prison and remained loose for nearly 14 years before his capture in Mexico in early 2014.

Mexico is offering $3.8 million for the capture of the country’s most notorious drug lord, Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman, who escaped from a Mexican prison less than a week ago, USA Today reports. 

Mexican officials also fired the director of Altiplano, the maximum security prison where Guzman escaped, and two jail employees.

Mexico’s Interior Secretary Miguel Angel Osorio Chong said that the employees “had something or a lot to do with what happened” and likely were motivated by bribes or threats.

“Guzman, through his Sinaloa cartel, is the major supplier of narcotics in Chicago,” said Bileck, a retired director of training for the city police department. “And he is a savage man, as bad as they come.”

Presidential candidate and shrewd businessman Donald Trump is asking the FBI to investigate a Twitter threat he received from an account purportedly run by escaped Mexican drug lord Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman, ABC News reports.

Trump said the threat came after he made comments about the escaped drug lord.

“I’m fighting for much more than myself,” Trump said about the threat Monday in a statement. “I’m fighting for the future of our country which is being overrun by criminals. You can’t be intimidated. This is too important.”

One of the tweets read: “Mexico’s biggest drug lord escapes from jail. Unbelievable corruption, and USA is paying the price. I told you so!” tweeted Trump.

On an account attributed to El Chap, Trump received the response: “Keep f—ing around, and I will make you swallow your whore words.”

Investigators are trying to determine the account’s origins.

The DEA warned Mexico 16 months ago of plans by drug lord Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman to break out of prison, according to documents revealed Monday, Fox News reports. 

The U.S. first warned Mexico in March 2014 that information has been gathered to suggest family members and others in the drug world planned “potential operations to free Guzman.”

Mexican officials denied being informed “in that respect” and questioned the authenticity of the documents.

Guzman broke out of prison before and was captured in February 2014, when plans almost immediately began to hatch to help him break free of jail.

Mexico’s most notorious drug lord has escaped from prison again.

Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman was last seen stepping into a shower when he escaped from a maximum-security prison through a tunnel.

What authorities discovered was baffling – a lighted tunnel that stretched nearly a mile long from the prison to a half-built house, CNN reports. 

Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto said a manhunt was underway and that he was “deeply troubled.”

“This represents, without a doubt, an affront to the Mexican state, but also I am confident that the institutions of the Mexican state, particularly those in charge of public safety, are at the level, with the strength and determination, to recapture this criminal,” Peña Nieto said.

Guzma, who has run a deadly drug trafficking ring, escaped from prison in a laundry cart in 2001.

During the manhunt for two escaped murderers, Border Patrol agents swooped into the woods of northern New York after hearing reports of gunshots.

The agents spotted one of the escapees behind a tree. When he pointed a shotgun at them, the agents fatally shot the killer.

It was the first detailed report of Richard Matt’s death, the Burlington Free Press reports.

“Our agents were obviously expecting the worst on every one of those calls,” Chief John Pfeifer said. “Very challenging terrain, challenging weather, lot of stress. You’re dealing with some very bad individuals. Can’t thank law enforcement enough for bringing these individuals back in.”

Matt and another inmate escaped the Clinton Correctional Facility in Dennemora and were on the run for three weeks.
