Pablo Escobar: This Columbian drug lord is known as the world’s most notorious criminal. One of the most elusive cocaine traffickers the world had ever seen, Escobar rose from poverty and obscurity to be the most powerful man in Colombia. But, like most powerful figures, the tides must turn. Escobar was killed by rebel forces in 1993, from a fatal shot to his ear. And, we’re still talking about him now.
