How did Pablo Escobar Die?

1 Answer

  1. Pablo Emilio Escobar Gaviria was a notorious Columbian smuggler, a drug kingpin, and cartel leader. He was one of the richest men in the world during his peak days and also one of the most wanted men in the world. Escobar started his rackets from his hometown in Medellin. He learned to deal with people at an early age. Escobar used to give gifts and donate money to the poor thus winning their support. He made the government look bad by siding with the poor and the needy. Even though most of the people were aware of his misconduct, they ignored it.

    Pablo had many enemies including rival cartels, the Columbian government, and the U.S government. There were multiple attempts on his life and he was imprisoned multiple times but he survived. He also evaded capture several times both by the CIA and the Columbian military. The drug kingpin had several hideouts throughout Columbia and in the world where he could escape the law.

    However, Pablo finally got killed during another attempt to escape law enforcement agencies. He was on the run when the Columbian Police tracked him down and gave chase. The infamous gangster got shot on 2nd December 1993 and suffered wounds on his leg, his torso, and his head. The latter proved to be fatal for the notorious smuggler.

    The interesting thing is that Pablo’s household believes that he committed suicide when he was faced with no other choice. He was eluding the police for so long that it might have crossed his mind to take his own life – never to be caught by the police. It is still not sure who shot that bullet, whether it was in the heat of battle or afterward as a form of execution by the Columbian police.
