Drug Lord. Known as the "Godmother of Cocaine" Blanco immigrated to the US in the mid 1970's and established a sizable cocaine trafficking business. She was known to use violence to get her way and was connected to at least 40 murders in the US. Captured in 1985, Blanco served almost 20 years in prison before being deported back to her native Colombia in 2005. Blanco has been featured in the documentary film Cocaine Cowboys and on US television in the show Deadly Women. Blanco was shot to death as she was leaving a butcher shop. Executed in the same "motorcycle assassination" style that she was credited with creating.
