Interesting Facts

#Fact
1 Girlfriend was Virginia Vallejo.
2 Tracked down by a joint US/Colombian task force, Escobar attempted to escape by climbing up on the roof of his house when the police burst through his front door. He was spotted by a Colombian police captain, who ordered him to halt, then shot him when he didn't. The officer's identity has never been made public. In addition, after he was killed the officers in the unit trimmed his mustache--the normally clean-shaven Escobar had grown a thick, bushy mustache and a beard to disguise his identity--to make him look like Adolf Hitler, then gleefully posed for pictures with his dead, bloody body.
3 Like most cocaine traffickers, Escobar himself rarely used the drug and was only a moderate drinker. His lifelong recreational drug of choice was marijuana.
4 Married his wife when she was 15; he obtained a special dispensation from the local bishop (such dispensations were routinely offered by the Church for a fee)).
5 By the mid-'80s Escobar owned 19 different residences in Medellín alone, each with a helipad. There was so much money rolling into his enterprise that figuring out how to invest it was more than he could handle; millions were simply buried.
6 In 1978, he was elected as a substitute city council member in Medellín. In 1982, he was elected to Congress. As a congressman, Escobar had automatic judicial immunity and could no longer be prosecuted for crimes under Colombian law. He was also entitled to a diplomatic visa, which he used to take trips with his family to the United States.
7 Forbes magazine listed him as the seventh richest man in the world in 1989.
