Cocaine 'Godmother' Gunned Down In Colombia

September 05, 2012  | 

Griselda Blanco, the drug kingpin known for her blood-soaked style of street vengeance during Miami's "cocaine cowboys" era of the '70s and '80s, was shot to death in Medellin by a motorcycle-riding assassin Monday.

Blanco, 69, spent nearly two decades behind bars in the United States for drug trafficking and three murders, including the 1982 slaying of a 2-year-old boy in Miami.

Called the "Godmother of Cocaine," she was deported in 2004 to Colombia, where she maintained a low profile.
