    Jhon Jairo Velásquez Vásquez (Born April 15, 1962) also known by the alias "Popeye!", is a former assassin[1] that was part of the criminal structure of the Medellin Cartel until his surrender to the Colombian justice system in 1992. Within this structure he was a lieutenant commanding half of the sicarios. He was one of the members of the inner circle of Pablo Escobar, the head of the criminal organization calling itself The Extraditables.[2]

    Jhon Jairo Velásquez Vásquez was born in the municipality of Yarumal, Antioquia, Colombia. He was admitted to the Colombian National Army, later he joined the cadet school of the national police, only to leave days later, having not found any satisfaction in this profession. Later, he entered the school of apprentices of the Colombian Navy where he earned his distinctive nickname ‘Popeye’ because of his physical resemblance to the character, which would later be removed by plastic surgery.


    Velasquez attended University of North Barranquilla. He entered the School of NCOs of the Colombian Navy, and eventually transferring to the Police Cadet School General Santander, where he spent one semester. Later in life, while imprisoned, he also obtained 14 diplomas of various short courses.

    Criminal records[edit]

    Velasquez was identified as a medium-level hitman of the Medellin cartel. He has confessed to 250 killings, the kidnapping of then candidate for mayor of Bogota, Andres Pastrana Arango (who would later become President of the republic), the kidnapping of Francisco Santos (who would later become vice president), kidnapping and murder of Colombian politician Carlos Mauro Hoyos, complicity in the murder of the governor of Antioquia, Antonio Roldán Betancur, in a failed mission entrusted to Popeye and John Jairo Arias Tascon, alias "Pinina" to kill a police colonel, and the killing of politician and Presidential candidate Luis Carlos Galán Sarmiento.[3]


    Since 1992, Velasquez served a prison sentence on charges of terrorism, drug trafficking, conspiracy for terrorist purposes and murder.[4] However, despite the severity of his crimes, Colombia does not have capital punishment and the maximum sentence at the time of his conviction was thirty years. During 2000 and 2001, Popeye was involved in armed clashes in La Modelo prison. In 2008, he was sentenced to twelve years for other judicial proceedings against him. On August 22, 2014 he received probation for having served three-fifths of his sentence. At age of 52, he was released on 26 August 2014 after 23 years and 3 months in prison.[5]

    Personal life[edit]

    Velásquez was once in a relationship with Wendy Chavarriaga Gil, a former lover of his boss Pablo Escobar. After Escobar discovered she had been working as a DEA informant, Velásquez killed her on instruction from Escobar.[6] In an interview, according to Popeye, Escobar was clear in his instructions, “you or her, do not hesitate a single second ... “[7]

    Controversy has continued to follow Popeye since his release from prison. On December 12, 2016, a video appeared in which Velásquez brandishes and fires a handgun in the streets of Medellín.[8] In the video, Velásquez proudly states, "Hello warriors, I'm here in the streets of my beloved Medellín, testing out my beautiful 9mm Pietro Beretta. We're firing it, it's a doll, a beauty!"[9]

    On December 2016, two men on motorbikes pulled up alongside him as he was driving in his car and robbed him of his luxury brand glasses, two gold bracelets and a mobile phone, he said. He also said it was the second time he had been targeted in such a way but police said he had not reported the incidents.[10]

    Today, aside from being a controversial figure, Popeye is a YouTube personality who uploads videos. In these videos he critiques various topics in Colombia such as a corrupt government and socioeconomic hardships.[11].
