Pablo Escobar - On the Roof

Pablo Escobar-On the Roof

On the 1st of December, 1993, Pablo Escobar had a birthday.  He had just turned 44 years old.

The next day, he was having lunch at the home of his Aunt (Luzmila Gaviria).  Earlier, he had talked with his son by phone. 

Enough time had elapsed, during that phone conversation, for Colonel Martinez - in charge of capturing the drug lord - to figure-out where Escobar was hiding.

Although he tried to flee, both Escobar and his bodyguard were killed.  This image depicts members of Colonel Martinez's Search Bloc with Escobar's body.
