Blanco’s trial, which began in New York in June 1985, ended with a conviction on one count of conspiracy to manufacture, import into the United States, and distribute cocaine.
Despite being accused of several Florida slayings, she escaped murder charges, and was sentenced to 15 years behind bars.
In 1994, Blanco, now a federal prison inmate, was transported back to Miami on three murder charges. She ended up pleading guilty to the three murder charges, and following a deal with prosecutors, she received a 10-year sentence. In June 2004, she was released from prison and deported back to Colombia.
Death & Legacy
On September 3, 2012, at age 69, Blanco was murdered in Medellin, Colombia.
Blanco’s story was a source of fascination and she was prominently featured in Billy Corben’s 2006 documentary Cocaine Cowboys, as well as its 2008 sequel, and we’re pleased to say you can view ‘Cocaine Cowboys’ on our YouTube Channel’s ‘Music, Sports & Culture’ Playlist.
Griselda represents all the worst things about the Drug trade…Her life is an example of how a Psychopath can thrive in a world where their base personality can be utilised and even applauded as a means of instilling fear in Rivals and ensuring advancement in the business.
Ultimately, she died exactly how she lived…By the Sword.
