Coronel was under the U.S. authority's radar but they were unable to do anything as she was a U.S. citizen and had not broken any laws herself.
El Chapo was previously arrested in 2001, but somehow managed to escape from Mexico's Puente Grande prison in a laundry basket before authorities handed him over to the U.S. on charges of drug trafficking. He has been on the run for 13 years since he escaped prison, but managed to avoid capture
U.S. authorities are now calling for the immediate extradition of El Chapo.
