Mexican drug lord Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman had twin brothers who helped him launder drug money to Mexico. They are twin brothers Margarito and Pedro Flores, from Chicago, Illinois.
These brothers helped bring down El Chapo who is now at a Manhattan maximum prison. There wives reveal how they hid and spent $2 billion drug money and lived their lives to the full.
Mia Flores and Olivia Flores are the wives of El Chapo’s henchmen, twin brother Margarito and Pedro Flores. They shared all their secrets in a new book titled “Cartel Wives: A True Story of Deadly Decisions, Steadfast Love, and Bringing down El Chapo”.
El Chapo Henchmen’s Wives: They Had $1 To $2 Million Lying Around For Their Frivolous Expenses
Published by Grand Central Publishing in June 2017 and listed for sale on Amazon, this 368-page book states on its blurb that it is “an astonishing, revelatory, and redemptive memoir from two women who escaped the international drug trade, with never-before-revealed details about El Chapo, the Sinaloa Cartel, and the dangerous world of illicit drugs.”
Both Margarito and Pedro Flores were sentenced in 2015 to 14 years in prison El Chapo: El Jaripeo before their wives wrote the book. According to the women authors, their husbands trafficked $2 billion to Mexico between 2005 and 2008.
El Chapo Henchmen’s wives said they lived in houses stacked full of money, with between $1 to $2 lying about in the rooms for their personal use. The henchmen’s wives said several paid workers worked a total of eight hours per day in three shifts counting wads of dollars in machines.
“ El Chapo Henchmen’s Wives: We Were Spoiled, We Ate Well, We Traveled… and Just Live Life to Its Fullest”
Mia and Olivia Flores said they lived the best of lives with the largesse placed at their disposals.
“We were spoiled, we ate well, we traveled, we would sometimes want to stay on vacation for a month on the beach and just live life to its fullest but at the end of the day we wanted to denounce that life and we knew what mattered to us was love and family and simplicity.”
Now living under assumed names, the wives are simply soccer moms, single mothers and PTA members to their residential neighbors. None knows them in their neighborhood as the wives of El Chapo’s twin henchmen.
