Son of the Cali Cartel: William Rodríguez Abadía | True Crime Podcast 356
The Cali Cartel was the most powerful drug organisation that Colombia has ever seen. It financed the hunt for Pablo Escobar and controlled the majority of the global cocaine trade. The two main capos, Gilberto and his brother, Miguel, ran a multi-billion-dollar drug empire like a corporation. They bribed dozens of judges, politicians, military, police officers – and even presidents.
This is Miguel’s son’s jaw-dropping story.
It starts with one of the biggest assassination attempts in Cali’s history. Dressed as cops, six men carrying guns with silencers opened fire on Miguel’s son William in a restaurant. Surrounded by his dead friends, William, seriously injured, was extracted and carried unconscious to a hospital.
William reveals the role of the Cali Cartel in wiping out its main rivals in the Medellín Cartel: Pablo Escobar and Gacha aka The Mexican.
Find out how William ran the cartel while his father was incarcerated and what he had to do to save his family from ever increasing threats and danger.
