    For the first time ever, all of Shocker Nation and the surrounding communities are invited to attend the Narcos Speaking Tour featuring two of the most influential individuals in the criminal justice community.

    During his 37 years in law enforcement, Steve Murphy was stationed all around the world, most notably as one of the two Americans present and involved in the hunt for the largest cocaine distributor in the world, Pablo Escobar. Murphy was present during the chase and eventual shooting resulting in the death of Escobar, and took all the photographs seen in the media following the event. In 1988, Javier Peña volunteered for an assignment at the DEA office in Bogota, Colombia. Shortly thereafter, he was joined by partner Steve Murphy, and together they pursued the world's first narco-terrorist, Pablo Escobar. Peña spent six years hunting Pablo, resulting in the final chase and shooting of Escobar in 1993. Many have watched the popular Netflix show, Narcos. Murphy and Peña were the direct link to Escobar's capture. These two former DEA agents helped inspire the creation of Narcos, a Netflix TV Original.
