There are 600 police officers in the city. Pablo killed 573 of them. He was arrested on May 11, 976.
Here is how the police chief described the murderer: "He's a man who's not only intelligent, but also very brave and determined."
Pablo got his name from his resemblance to a Spanish painter of that time, Juan de Pablos. His real name was Francisco de Paula Santander.
He was born on March 17, 1844 in Bucaramanga, Colombia. His parents were wealthy landowners. When he was young, his father was appointed governor of Norte de Santander. The family moved to San Salvador, where his father took charge of the government department there. Young Pablo showed an interest in law enforcement from a very early age. He learned to shoot a gun and became skilled at it. At the age of 21, he joined the army as a soldier. However, because of his intelligence and bravery, he was promoted to be a police officer. In 1872, he stopped a robbery attempt by some bandits and was rewarded for his effort with a gold medal given to only three people in all of Colombia at that time.
