The cousin of the late drug lord Pablo Escobar made an astonishing find: He found $ 18 million in a house wall. A vision would have led him to the hideout.
Pablo Escobar was considered the most notorious drug lord in the world. He sold tons of cocaine every day and made a fortune on the black market. Of course, he had to hide the money from the authorities – and so even 27 years after his death, hidden clumps of money are still showing up.
His cousin Nicolas Escobar has now found $ 18 million in a plastic bag in his uncle’s possession, local TV channel Red + Notocias reports. According to Escobar’s cousin, the contents were already half rotten.
But how could he find the bag in the wall?
“It’s not the first time I’ve found money in unusual places where my uncle has hidden it from the authorities,” Escobar told Red + Noticias. He had a vision that led him to the money.
He himself always noticed a foul smell there that was “100 times worse than something that has died”, Nicolas describes in a video. In addition to the rotten money, he also found a gold pen, satellite phones, a typewriter, a camera and an undeveloped video.
Pablo Escobar died in a hail of bullets on December 2, 1993, during an argument with the police. He was 44 years old. He spent his life in great luxury buying yachts, private zoos and other luxury goods. He was considered the seventh richest man in the world and controlled 80 percent of the entire US cocaine drug market.
