THE anxious ghost of cocaine baron Pablo Escobar can be seen pacing by the window of his mansion moments before it was demolished, internet sleuths insist.
Escobar and his family lived in the Monaco building in the northern Colombian city Medellin during the 1980s but the eight story mansion was demolished by the government last week.
There has been online speculation that what appears to square blobs in footage is in fact a picture of the ghost of the notorious drug lord, who died in a shootout with cops on December 2, 1993.
The eight-storey luxury mansion was demolished on by the Colombian authorities
They want to turn the site into a memorial park in honour of the estimated 46,000 victims of drug wars in the South American country.
But during the demolition process, carried out with 827 lbs of explosives, eagle-eyed witnesses saw a ghost flitting through a corridor and shared the footage on social media.
In the clip, a white silhouette is seen anxiously flitting between a window and a large entrance before floating upwards and disappearing just as the building is torn down.
Many have speculated it may have been Escobar himself while others claimed it was a demolition worker in the wrong place at the wrong time.
“It is not a construction worker, it is a ghost,” said Luz Adriana Martinez Gomez.
SCARED BY NOISE
“If it was a worker, he would not have been waiting there for the building to collapse. It is a ghost scared by all the noise.”
Ivan Andres Vaca added: “It is not a worker. There was a lot of negative energy there. It could be someone who was buried there.”
In March 2018, footage of a ghost – believed to have been Escobar – was also seen in a window of the abandoned mansion and shared on social media.
Escobar had an estimated fortune of £24 million and made the Forbes’ billionaires list of the world’s richest people seven years in a row beginning in 1987 and peaked at number seven in 1989
His business was so big and so that in addition to planes, helicopters, cars, trucks, and boats, he even bought two submarines for transporting his cocaine into the US.

Many of his properties had hidden stashes of cash and jewellery.
He was nicknamed “Robin Hood” as he spent a lot of money helping poor communities.
Dubbed the “King of Cocaine”, he stopped at nothing to protect his drug trafficking business and was behind the murders of thousands of people.
