Griselda Blanco

Griselda Blanco is known as the La Mirada (aka The Godmother) of the Columbian drug trafficking game. As a leader in the Medellin Cartel, Blanco mentored the likes of Pablo Escobar, and at its height her business dealings brought in more than $80 million a month. She is known for ordering ruthless murders, and lost three of her son’s to drug-related killings.

When she was arrested in 1985, Blanco continued to run her drug empire from behind bars. She was freed in 2004, and in 2012 motor-cycle assassins killed 71-year-old Blanco in Medellin, Columbia.
