Suspicious package found in Escobar’s former mansion

A mysterious package has emerged from a pink Miami Beach mansion once owned by Colombian drug lord Pablo Escobar. The current owner, Chicken Kitchen founder Christian de Berdouare, bought the waterfront estate for $9.65 million in 2014 with the plan to tear down the old mansion, unaware of Escobar’s link to it.

When he learned the former boss of the Medellin cartel owned the home before it was seized by US authorities in 1987, he hired professional treasure hunters to sweep the place — a smart move given that Escobar was known to hide goods in secret compartments in walls and floors.

Among the discoveries: a “suspicious” foot-long cylinder wrapped in plastic and containing “a white paste” that was found beneath an old stove in the garage, says de Berdouare.
