Perhaps the most notorious drug lord the world has ever known was arrested on this day in 1991.
The hardened criminal, Pablo Escobar, had evaded authorities for years until he finally surrendered to police after being cornered in Columbia. But Escobar surrendered on his own terms, which included a bizarre request to design the prison where he would be held. The request was surprisingly granted in order to facilitate his capture.
Escobar designed a luxurious mansion as his prison that included a soccer field, giant dollhouse, full bar, jacuzzi, and even a waterfall. He was allowed to live there unrestricted, until authorities learned that he was still running his drug cartel from the mansion, including having people murdered there. Authorities planned to relocate Escobar to a normal prison due to his continued involvement in the drug cartel.
When Escobar learned of the plan, he was able to escape from his self-designed prison before authorities could have him moved. What happened to Escobar after his big escape?
