His income based on his drug deals and illegal activities was around $20 billion every year which was way too high to be considered at that point of time. He married Maria Victoria Henao in 1976 and had two children, one son and one daughter with her.
His parent’s name was Abel de Jesus and Hermilda de los Dolores. Meanwhile his children’s name was Sebastian Marroquin and Manuela Escobar. Sebastian was born in 1977, a year after his parents were married. He was 17 years old when his father was shot to death by a hired hitmal who killed more than 300 people on his wife. The man was later robbed in the second largest city in Colombia. This was not the first time when he had to suffer from similar incident. He was also been through similar situation six months back before this happend. However according to police, he never mentioned or reported a complaint about any of those inclidents.
The hired killer was Jhon Jairo Velasquez who was sent to prison for 22 years for murder. Later after 22 years of sentence, he has started to comment on YouTube about Colombian politics.
Pablo started from nothing and in few years of time, he became one of the most powerful person in the world. He was the son of the poor farmer in Colombia, however at the age of 35, he was already one of the richest men on earth.
It was believed that Pablo bought around $420 million a week worth of drug which made him one of the wealthiest drug dealer in history. He was listed as the seventh richest man in earth for his wealth he made from illegal activities.
One of the interesting fact about Pablo Escobar’s money was that, he lost around $2 billion from his profit every year. As his wealth was growing so fast, it was totally difficult for him to launder his money which forced him to keep the money either in farm fields or behind the walls. The money was so huge that some of them were either eaten by rats or damaged by water which was the main reason why he lost money from his profits. However that sum of money did not matter very much for the ‘King of Cocaine’.
Another incident including money and Pablo is that once he started fire with $2 Million because his daughter was cold. That sounds ridiculously rich, and it actually was. Money like $2 million was like a little out from the pile of cash he had.
The mafia king did not just make money for himself but was also involved in social activities. He was named Robin hood because he helped poor. He made more than 75 community soccer fields and built houses for homeless people.
