Personal Life

Maria Victoria Henao, then 13 years old, met Pablo Escobar through her brother Carlos Mario Henao Vallejo, who also worked for him, and the two immediately fell in love. Her family did not approve of the union because they knew Pablo Escobar was involved in illegal activities.

They were against the union because Carlos Mario Henao Vallejo was involved with Pablo Escobar and was well aware of his illicit activities. The couple was compelled to elope as a result.

He had numerous mistresses, and Virginia Vallejo, a journalist, was one of them. Their relationship was well-known and well-documented. Having known about his premarital affair, Maria Victoria Henao didn’t leave him.

On a rooftop in Medellin on December 2, 1993, a group of Colombian policemen with U.S. support killed Pablo Escobar. According to the inquiry, Maria Victoria Henao knew about Pablo Escobar‘s operation and was complicit in narcotics trafficking. She refused all accusations, saying she was only his wife and had no connection with his illicit deals.

Maria Victoria Henao and her son were freed 15 months after concrete proof. Her son is a lecturer and an architect who wrote the well-known book Pablo Escobar: My Father. But her daughter has severed all links with the family and has never publicly mentioned her father.
