Born as Pablo Emilio Escobar Gaviria, Pablo Escobar was probably one of the extremely rich criminals in the world in his time. With an estimated net worth of around $25 billion, Pablo Escobar was described as a wealthy narcoterrorist, drug lord and cocaine trafficker.
His criminal mind was reported to start during his teenage years. At such a young age, Escobar has already had his ambition to become a millionaire when he reaches twenty two. There are allegations that he started by stealing gravestones which he sold to smugglers. These allegations were later denied by Escobar’s brother. Subsequently, Escobar was involved in a couple of criminal activities together with his partner Oscar Bernal Aguirre. These include selling contraband cigarettes, stealing cars, selling fake lottery tickets, and running street scams.
Escobar was born on December 1, 1949 in Rionegro, Antioquia, Colombia. He died on December 2, 1993 at age 44 in Medellín, Colombia after he and his companion were shot as they try to escape from the Colombian National Police. His death led to the market domination of his greatest rival Cali Cartel.
