No worries! Did you find that picture circulating online in recent news? I added it on the mainpage so I suspect an outlet could have used it.
Here is a picture of a passport Gerardo had from Jalisco. This is what he used when he was in Argentina and Uruguay. It was under the fake name Alonso Torres Ibarra. It was issued in 2014 and has his DOB as 31 July 1976.
