The truth behind Pablo Escobar's death

16 months after his escape from La Catedral, Pablo Escobar died in a shootout amid another of Escobar's attempts to elude the Search Bloc. A Colombian electronic surveillance team, led by Brigadier Hugo Martínez, used radio trilateration technology to track his radiotelephone transmissions and found him hiding in Los Olivos.
