The story of Pablo Emilio Escobar Gaviria, one of the wealthiest, powerful and violent criminals of all time has fascinated the world. Yet the one person closest to him, his wife, only recently just spoke out.

She managed to negotiate her and her children’s freedom after Pablo’s demise and is today living in Argentina.
