Death: Dec. 2, 1993

Drug czar. Leader of the Medellin Cartel, he was killed in a rooftop of the safehouse where he was hiding in Medellin. At his height in the 1980's, he owned fleets of boats and planes, 19 separate residences in Medellin, each with its own helipad.  Forbes magazines named him one of the 20 richest men in the world, more than once.  He is the only declared public enemy Colombia has had in its history.  At one time, Colombia and the US offered $8.7 million for his capture. He created an era of terror in Colombia, killed presidential candidates, kidnapped journalists. (bio by: Maru Gines)
