On This Day: July 22nd

on

On July 22nd 1992 Pablo Escobar escaped from his personal luxury prison in fear he would be extradited to the United States. There were plans to move Escobar from his luxurious prison to a more secure state run prison due to the fact his drug empire was still being run and controlled from the prison as well as other crimes being committed in there. After this escape more organisations joined the manhunt for the drug lord and the hunt ended in December 1993 when he was believed to have been shot to death, there are beliefs that it may have been suicide however.
