According to information from the Colombian newspaper El Tiempo, Nicolás Escobarnephew of Pablo Escobar, would be the key for the US authorities to study the case of the boss’s hitman, given new details of the crime.

And, when talking about said attack in an interview with Univision, Nicolás does not mention “La Quica” in the details of the preparation that the men of the Medellín Cartel had to carry out the attack.

It should be noted that, in past statements, “La Quica†has reiterated that it had no participation in the attack and that His conviction was based on testimonies from people seeking judicial benefits.
