FILE - This Feb. 14, 2013 photo shows a wanted poster for Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman, a drug kingpin in Mexico, who was deemed Chicago's Public Enemy No. 1, displayed at a Chicago Crime Commission news conference. It was the first time since prohibition, when the label was created for Al Capone, that it was used to describe a criminal. Guzman, the one they called "shorty" because of his 5'6" frame, a man who grew up poor and had no formal education, would rise from a small-time Mexican marijuana producer to lead the world's most powerful drug cartel.
