Dead El Chapo cartel members get buried ‘in tombs with Wi-fi, TV and air-con’
A security specialist has revealed the El Chapo's Sinaloa Cartel bury their drug lords in tombs that look like mansions.
Ed Calderon has worked in the field of counter-narcotics for over a decade, organised crime investigations, and public safety in the northern border region of Mexico.
And during a recent podcast with Joe Rogan, the combatives instructor shared the moment he mistook a cartel lord's tomb for a church.
Ed said: "Some of their graveyards are hardcore.
"The narco cemetery they have is basically luxury condos that look like a church and it turns out to be a tomb.

"They have vehicles with guns, they role around and no one does anything because they own the city.
"Some of them have CCTV video inside, air conditioning, alarms."
It has also previously been revealed that some have balconies, Wifi and satellite TV.
The cemetery is situated on the outskirts of Culiacán, capital of the Mexican state of Sinaloa.
Many of the tombs' cost to build can surpass $500,00 (£383,000) and end up look like mansions.
Ed revealed that during Day of the Dead – a Mexican's holiday which sees them remember and honour their deceased loved ones – many cartel members congregate at the tombs.
He added: "The cartel heads go there on the Day of the Dead, have live music and bands, and shoot their AK-47 into the air and no one does anything.
"The opulence is amazing.
"It's like having several Escobar's in one place, a lot of cartel heads are from that region."
It comes only days after Maria 'La Catrina', 21, an Instagram star and cartel boss was gunned down in a bloody shootout.
