That's a good question. Seems like he was holding a phone camera in both pictures. Maybe some sort of videocall (WhatsApp)? I wonder why he would even agree to expose his face, but maybe that's some sort of "requirement" when you're making drug deals at the very top. Or maybe it was just a selfie he had on his phone and it got leaked.
I remember having seen an alleged picture of him on here where he was walking with another guy. Not sure if it was real or not but depicted what would have been a much more recent picture of him with an extra 20 or 30 pounds on him. Looked more like a CEO than a cartel scum but his face definitely had similar, if aged characteristics.
