Pablo Emilio Escobar Gaviria born on December 1949, and died on December 1993, was a Colombian drug lord and narcoterrorist. His cartel supplied an estimated 80% of the cocaine smuggled into the United States at the height of his career, turning over $21.9 billion a year. His wealth was estimated between $25 and $30 billion by the early 1990s, making him one of the richest men in the world.
Escobar was born in Rionegro, Colombia, and grew up in nearby Medellín. He studied briefly at Universidad Autónoma Latinoamericana of Medellin but left without a degree. He started his criminal career by selling contraband cigarettes and fake lottery tickets, and he participated in motor vehicle theft.
In the 1970s, he began to work for various contraband smugglers, often kidnapping and holding people for ransom before beginning to distribute powder cocaine. His drug network was commonly known as the Medellín Cartel, that often had an issue resulting in the murders of police officers, judges, locals, and politicians.
In 1982, Escobar was elected as an alternate member of the Chamber of Representatives of Colombia as part of the Liberal Alternative movement. Through this, he was responsible for the construction of houses and football fields in western Colombia, which gained him popularity among the locals. In 1993, Escobar was shot and killed in his hometown by Colombian National Police, one day after his 44th birthday.
In 2007, Vallejo published Amando a Pablo, odiando a Escobar, in which she describes her romantic relationship with Pablo Escobar. Vallejo’s memoir became the number one bestselling Spanish-language book in both Colombia and the United States. Also, this book was the inspiration for the movie Loving Pablo.
