Killing Pablo Escobar: The True Story Part 1
Part 2: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_4PRsp2odLg
Based on the bestselling book by author Mark Bowden, this documentary focuses on the history of Pablo Escobar, the notoriously violent criminal and the efforts of U.S. and Colombian law enforcement to capture him.
Pablo Escobar was a Colombian drug lord and drug trafficker. His cartel, at the height of his career, supplied an estimated 80% of the cocaine smuggled into the United States, turning over US $21.9 billion a year in personal income. Often called “The King of Cocaine”, he was the wealthiest criminal in history, with an estimated known net worth of US $30 billion by the early 1990s (equivalent to about $54 billion today), making him one of the richest men in the world at his prime.
