Drug Lord El Chapo Wife’s, Emma Aispuro Coronel On Vacation in Venice, While Husband Rots in Jail

While Joaquín ‘El Chapo’ Guzmán rots in a hellish supermax prison in Colorado, his glamorous wife Emma Aispuro Coronel is vacationing in Italy.

Coronel shared a picture to Instagram on Saturday taken on a gondola near the Rialto Bridge on the Grand Canal in Venice, Italy.

She also posted a snap of her Starbucks coffee and a piece of cake on her Instagram account last week with the caption: ‘What diet?’

Her cultural trip comes less than two weeks after a federal judge in Brooklyn sentenced her husband El Chapo, 62, to life in prison, plus 30 years.

In the past week, Coronel has also shared pictures of the El Chapo clothing line, which she heads up.

Between 2002 and 2005, Robert Hood served as the warden of the facility, where no prisoner has ever escaped from in its 25 years of existence.

‘This is not built for humanity,’ Hood told the Denver Post.

‘I think that being there, day-by-day, it’s worse than death.’

The jail came under fire in 2012 when 11 inmates filed a class-action lawsuit against the U.S. Bureau of Prisons.

The lawsuit, ‘Cunningham v. Federal Bureau of Prisons.,’ accused the federal detention facility of chronic abuse and failure to properly diagnose prisoners who are seriously mentally ill.

Former inmate Jack Powers, who was one of the inmates mentioned in the lawsuit, spent almost a decade at the super-max prison after he was transferred there following an escape from a federal facility in New Jersey.

During his time at ADX, according to The Marshall Project, Powers developed insomnia and was diagnosed with PTSD after he saw three inmates kill each other.

Powers, who has since been moved to a federal facility in Atlanta, bit off both pinky fingers and sliced off his earlobes.

He also cut off his testicle and scrotum.
