Khun Sa
Birth: Feb. 17, 1933
Death: Oct. 26, 2007

Burmese warlord and drug baron. Authoritatively regarded as the world's most prolific heroin trafficker, Khun Sa, also known as Chan Chi-Fu, was once dubbed "the Prince of Death." He died facing a charge of having exported 1,000 tons of heroin to the United States. He preferred to be known as the "Lord of the Golden Triangle," the area encompassing parts of Burma, Laos and Thailand, which once produced most of the world's heroin. He commanded an army of 10,000 soldiers and claimed that his army was fighting for the freedom of the Shan states, which the British had promised independence at the Panglong Agreement in 1947. He died of complications from diabetes. (bio by: cookie)
