However, despite these luxuries that are allowed to Coronel during his stay in prison, They hardly resemble what she was used to before her imprisonment.

In addition, in her networks she shared images of her and luxury cars such as Ferrari, Lamborghini, BMW, Audi and Porsche. In one of the clips shared by Coronel Aispuro, he was seen next to a Mercedes Benz AMG line, whose price ranges between 1.1 and 1.7 million pesos.

By then, Colonel Aispuro had reached an agreement with United States prosecutors, since she had always denied being involved in her husband’s business, whom she described as follows in an interview for Telemundo:

He is a good man, he is not violent or rude, I have never seen him say a bad word. His girls adore him and constantly ask about him.

The former beauty queen admitted having worked as a link between “El Chapo” and the Sinaloa Cartel when he was imprisoned in the maximum security prison of “El Altiplano”. In fact, the information that Coronel provided helped “El Chapo” successfully achieve the most spectacular of his escapes through a 1.5-kilometer bridge that connected the bathroom of his cell with a half-built house on the outskirts of the prison. .
