Conceived in 1943 in Cartagena, Colombia, Blanco was encompassed by neediness from birth. The shantytown where she grew up had such a high homicide rate, to the point that kids would take a break in the city by burrowing gaps for the bodies that littered the roads.
At age 11, she ran with a gathering of companions to an adjacent affluent town and abducted a 10-year-old kid from a rich family. The kid was held prisoner as Blanco attempted to get recover cash from his family. When unmistakably the family was not willing to surrender the money, Blanco was given a firearm and she shot the kid between the eyes. Viciousness was available from the earliest starting point of her life, and it pursued her into adulthood. DEA Agent Bob Palombo clarified, “I don’t think the way that she was a female attempting to demonstrate something had anything to do with her rough conduct; I simply think it was inborn to Griselda Blanco. This returns to her life, the manner in which she was raised. She was only a fierce individual.”
War With Pablo Escobar
Business was going so well for Blanco that it wouldn’t have been long until her opponents began to attack her domain. One of those opponents was Pablo “The King of Cocaine” Escobar. He had turned into the greatest danger to her business despite the fact that she had surrendered him a leg from the begin.

So started a savage round of professional killers as they both sent individuals from their very own medication cartels to slaughter the other.In this medication war, Escobar had the high ground. At the point when the FBI was surrounding Blanco, Escobar was en route up. It was only a cat-and-mouse diversion until the point when he would end up as the winner
Killed Her Three Husbands

Kennedy Jr. A guarantee of his sheltered return would be arranged in the event that she was permitted to walk free. Nothing at any point happened to Blanco’s intricate arrangement.
With her in the slammer, it was the same old thing—to say the least—for her opponents outwardly. The most secure place for Blanco was in jail. Miami manslaughter analyst Nelson Andreu disclosed to the Miami Herald, “It’s astonishing to us all that she had not been executed sooner since she made a considerable measure of foes. When you kill such huge numbers of and hurt such huge numbers of individuals as she did, it won’t be long until they discover you and attempt to even the score.”

Everybody needed to work for her, and the DEA evaluated that she had 600 individuals on her payroll.DEA operator Bob Palombo told Maxim, “She hypnotized individuals. She could charm you with her keenness and make you an unwavering devotee.” Blanco could carry on with an actual existence of solace and extravagance. Be that as it may, with extraordinary wealth came intense foes
