... ruled the city. It was off limits to tourists and the police as there was a $1000 reward for knocking off a policeman.

The house where he was killed on the roof is also something you can find but I think it is now inhabited and remodeled. It is in Los Olivios neighborhood, Carrera 79B #45D-94, near Estadio Girardot.
