1Here's a view of the living room and kitchen after operation "Black Swan."
2Here's a close-up of the modern kitchen. The home underwent renovations a year after it was bought.
3In this picture, the contents of a bullet-ridden fridge have poured out onto the floor of Guzmán's safe house.
4A journalist takes pictures of the scattered food items.
5Bullet holes are seen across the living room walls.
6And here's a close-up of some of the bullet holes.
7A journalist looks at belongings scattered across one of the hideout's bedrooms.
8Nail polish, makeup, body lotion, a water bottle, and DVDs are seen on sheets of a bed inside the safe house.
9The DVDs are of Mexican actress Kate del Castillo's telenovela "La Reina del Sur." Del Castillo, who secretly brokered an interview between Sean Penn and Guzmán, plays a Spanish drug baroness.
10When Mexican marines zeroed in on Guzmán, he used a secret doorway behind this mirror to escape.
11In this photo, a journalist slides behind the mirror into a secret passageway.
12Once inside the hidden doorway, stairs descend into a sophisticated tunnel ...
13... that leads into the city's drainage system.
16A weapon is found at the end of the tunnel.
17And here's the tunnel's exit onto the street outside.
