An elderly woman who was known as Colombia’s “Queen of Cocaine” was gunned down in the northwestern city of Medellin, police said Tuesday.
Griselda Blanco, 69, was killed by two bullets at close range — a violent end not unlike the ones that authorities say she ordered during her prime in the 1970s and 1980s.
If you love documentaries like I do, I highly recommend Cocaine Cowboys. Griselda Blanco is obviously featured prominently in it. Movies like Scarface and video games like Grand Theft Auto: Vice City were inspired by the real stories you’ll hear in this flick.
