You know only two kinds of people are remembered even after their death. One kind is those who create history by doing something good for the people and the other ones are those who did extremely bad for the mankind. I think that is the reason why we still want to know about him today.
Pablo was called the king of Cocaine and you will not be surprised to know that he was the wealthiest criminal in the history. Pablo was born on 1st December 1949 and died on 2nd December 1993.
He was shot by the Columbian Police and military forces along with his bodyguards. The drug lord was married to Maria Victoria Henao in 1976. At that time Maria was just 15 and Pablo was 27.
Pablo was considered socially inferior by Maria’s family. They soon had two children. Their son is named as Sebastian Marroquin and daughter as Manuela Escobar. Few months before Pablo’s death, his family were searched in Germany but were not found. They were living in the Bogota hotel.
All the family members were taken under the control of police after Pablo’s death. Sebastian says that his father shot himself. Pablo’s son changed his surname to Marroquin. He studied architecture in 2015. He wrote a book, Pablo Escobar: My father, which tells how he grew up with the drug lord.
Sebastian once was interviewed with the France-press. He said,
“My father's not a person to be imitated. He showed us the path we must never take as a society because it's the path to self-destruction, the loss of values and a place where life ceases to have importance.”
We have some of the tweets to show the pictures of Pablo and his family at young age. Give a look.

Very well said, Sebastian. He knows that his father made a wrong choice. Though he had all of the things he wanted he could not live a happy life as he was the son of Drug Lord. Netflix’s original drama, Narcos, is based on the life of Pablo.
By taking the help of persons who were originally linked to Pablo, the drama is going quite well and the people are loving it.
After Pablo’s death, Maria flew to Mozambique with her children. She also changed her name to Victoria Henao Vallejos. Since her husband died, she is staying out of the spotlight. Escobar’s son has criticized Netflix show Narcos for glorifying his father. He does not like the way Narcos is turning his father to hero. He also says the series has so many errors. He said,
“I receive tons of messages from youths asking for help to be like my dad. They want to be that criminal, they send me photos dressed up like him, with his mustache, his hairstyle.”
It is known that Escobar’s children are in Argentina but they do not want to come in the spotlight as it may add a mental pressure to them and they will be asked a lot of question which children can hardly answer about his father.
