Chavarriaga and Escobar had a romance of several years, but she became pregnant, news that did not please the head of the Medellín Cartel, since, apparently, he prohibited his lovers from becoming pregnant.

According to the book ‘My life and my prison with Pablo Escobar ‘, from Victoria Eugenia Henao, wife of the drug trafficker, the young woman was expecting a child and was five months pregnant when they put her to sleep to get the baby from her. When she woke up, Chavarriaga tried to jump from one of the windows of the place, but Escobar’s men stopped her.
After the abominable event, the model began an affair with Popeye: “I loved her with all my soul. She was a spectacular model, from the other world. A woman whose legs stuck out from behind her neck. He knew how to speak, he knew how to sit, he knew how to eat”Popeye told the magazine ‘Don Juan’.
However, although Escobar approved of the several-month affair, he suggested to Popeye to be careful and tapped the model’s phone, in such a way that he discovered that Wendy was one of the informants of the Search Block, the elite group created solely and exclusively to capture it. Thus, Escobar ordered Popeye to kill his girlfriend.
The then hitman stated that he did not know that the model He was an informant and that he was so in love that he was not able to assassinate her himself: “I made an appointment for him and sent him five assassins to finish him off.a”.
Popeye confessed that of all the women with whom he had a romantic relationship, the only ones he really loved were Wendy and the mother of his son.
