Biography

Gustavo Gaviria and Pablo Escobar

Gustavo was Pablo Escobar's cousin and right-hand man, the Medellín cartel's financial head, and the brains of the organization. He and Escobar had collaborated in their careers since the early 1970s. Though owner of a fortune comparable to Escobar's, Gustavo was not as well known, as he kept a low profile.

Death

It is speculated he was killed by Search Bloc of Colombia, and the incident was covered up. Gustavo's death deeply affected Escobar, given their deep personal and professional relationship. Nonetheless, Escobar did not attend his cousin's funeral but instead listened to the funeral mass via a radio his assistant had attached to the officiating priest.

Aftermath

After Gaviria's death, Escobar decided to turn himself in but to stay at La Catedral, a jail of his own making, guarded by his own guards. Since Gustavo died five days after César Gaviria took office, at the time, the media and the country in general thought the President had begun his term with an offensive against the narcoterrorists. Gustavo's death triggered a counter-offensive by Escobar that initially destabilized the new president's administration.
