'Godmother of Cocaine' Gunned Down in Colombia


Griselda Blanco, 69—known as the “Godmother of Cocaine” for her role in a large-scale drug-smuggling operation from Colombia to Miami in the ’70s and ’80s—was murdered on Monday after being gunned down by an assassin on a motorcycle. Blanco was reportedly no longer involved in organized crime after she was deported from the U.S. following a 20-year prison stint for drug trafficking and three murders, one of which was a 2-year-old little boy.
