Witness to Griselda Blanco's murder: "It was vengeance from the past” / by rakontur

Miami Herald's Frances Robles reports on the scene outside the Medellin butcher shop where Blanco was shot:

As [Griselda Blanco] lay dying on the ground, her pregnant daughter-in-law, who had been waiting in the car, lay a Bible on her chest.

No one who witnessed the attack knew until later that the victim was one of the most violent and powerful drug traffickers in Miami’s history. According to a witness interviewed by The Miami Herald, the killer was a man in his 40s or 50s who was calm and composed throughout the attack.

“He was a professional,” the witness said. “It was vengeance from the past.”
