Imagine being the men at the center of one of the biggest, most important, and most multifaceted international investigations in the 1980’s and early 1990’s. Imagine being the key players in the successful manhunt of the world’s first narco-terrorist and being the reasons behind the DEA’s victory in the drug war raging on between Miami and Columbia during this time. Imagine successfully capturing and killing Pablo Escobar, the leader of the Medellin drug cartel who was responsible for the death of about 4,000 people and for about 80% of the cocaine smuggled into America.
Now, imagine being able to meet these celebrated DEA agents and going with them on their incredible journey through history as they describe their experience in Columbia that has been depicted in the Golden-Globe nominated Netflix series, Narcos. Well…guess what Buckeyes?! On October 9th, you will have the chance to do just that!
Steve Murphy and Javier Peña are the DEA agents responsible for the downfall of Pablo Escobar, one of history’s most violent and wealthiest drug-trafficking criminals. These admired law enforcement officers played lead roles during the six-year hunt, the chase, and the shooting that resulted in the death of Escobar in 1993. This remarkable team’s spine-tingling and nail-biting story is sure to leave you on the edge of your seat. These men have both dedicated their lives to law enforcement and have been stationed all over the world in constant pursuit of triumphing evil. Their leadership, valor, and expertise have led them to successfully disassembling countless criminal networks, and they have relentlessly brought justice to the world. Today, these men are currently not only subject matter experts and senior consultants for “Narcos”, but they also are embarking on another investigation together of an 80 year old cold case.
Quick! Go binge watch “Narcos” and come join OUAB as Steve Murphy and Javier Peña, recount their enthralling story of the investigation and capture of Pablo Escobar, describe Escobar’s famous prison and ranch, and give us the details about the making of the hit Netflix series, “Narcos”!
