Pablo Escobar Bio – 2018 Update

From Rionegro, Columbia, Pablo Escobar initially started off selling fake lottery tickets and contraband cigarettes. Gaining confidence over time, he eventually began to work for various smugglers, after which he started to distribute cocaine himself. Responsible for one of the first smuggle routes in the U.S., his infiltration into the drug market led to a huge rise in demand for the white power in the 70’s. By the 1980’s, it was said that he’d shipped upwards of 80 tons from Columbia on a monthly basis. Known for his ‘Medellin Cartel’ drug network, he often competed with other cartels in the area, which led to many murders and massacres.

By the late 80’s, Escobar was taking in over $20 billion USD a year in personal income. Nicknamed “The King of Cocaine,” he soon became the wealthiest criminal in the history of the U.S., with an estimated net worth of $30 billion by the early 90’s. Eventually surrendering to Colombian authorities in 1991, he was placed in La Catedral, which served as his own ‘luxurious private prison’. Still, that was not enough to keep him behind bars; he later escaped a year later. For the next year and a half, he continued business as usual, smuggling and selling cocaine. Then, 16 months after his escape, he was shot and killed by the police in his hometown of Medellin.
