Blanco was a Colombian-born drug baroness who had been involved in a life of crime since her early teens. She made her way to the United States in the mid-1970s, along with her husband and four sons, first settling in New York City, then later moving to South Florida and Southern California. Blanco was also one of the key figures in the infamous Cocaine Cowboy drug wars that plagued the Miami area in late '70s and early '80s. She was arrested by federal authorities in 1985 on drug and murder conviction, and while she was released from prison in 2004, she was deported back to Colombia some time later. Exactly a month after her Gangsters profiles originally aired, Blanco was murdered on September 3 in Medellín, Colombia via a drive-by shooting. She was 69 years old.
