This organization caught the eye of the US Treasury Department and today, Mrs. Chacón is suspected of performing money laundering services for Mexican cartels.   She moves tens of millions of dollars in drug money every month, making her the most prolific money launderer in Guatemela.

  • 9. Laura Zuniga

    A Mexican beauty queen with a sting. Laura was the center of a drug trafficking scandal in December of 2008. She was arrested along with seven other men who were carrying large sums of cash and illegal weapons.   The Juarez Cartel is responsible for smuggling tons of narcotics from Mexico into the U.S. throughout its long and turbulent history, and the group’s intense rivalry with the Sinaloa Cartel helped turn Juarez into one of the most violent places in the world. Despite recent news reports about its decline, the Juarez Cartel remains one of the most powerful criminal organizations in Mexico and the region.   Small cells carry out different types of operations ranging from transportation and distribution of drugs; street gangs, mostly in the north, act as the enforcement wing and are involved in human trafficking and kidnapping operations.

  • 7. Estrella Hermila Ramos

    It is custom to mourn the death of your parents. However, after her father was gunned down in Mexico, Estrella Hermila Ramos didn't waste any time to mourn. She was too busy fighting for her father's turf.   She learned the tricks of the trade from her father, who worked for the Sinaloa cartel. In 2009, the leader of the Sinaloa cartel was noticed by Forbes as one of the world's richest people.   Estrella never doubted that she could make it in the Mexican drug game. Her tactics included sending shipments through the Mexico/ Texas border where paid-off guards would make sure the shipment got through.  

  • 6. Sandra Avila Beltran

    The Femme Fatale, Sandra Avila Beltran is the niece of Miguel Gallardo, the onetime godfather of the Mexican drug trade who is currently serving a 40-year sentence. She used the old fashioned method (sex) as a tool to get to the top of the Mexican drug game.   She reportedly had affairs with several well known drug traffickers in Mexico.  Her two former husbands were ex-police commanders who became drug traffickers. She was arrested in September of 2008 and faced charges of organized crime and conspiracy to traffic drugs.   Some of these charges were dropped but she is currently in jail serving a sentence for money laundering and possession of illegal weapons.  

  • 5. Angela Sanclemente

    Angela Sanclemente ran a drug trafficking ring that was based in Columbia and extended to other South American countries. In March of 2010 Interpol issued an international arrest warrant.   At the time, investigators believed she was in Argentina where authorities suspected that she was the "queen" of an international operation that used female models as drug mules to move suitcases loaded with cocaine out of the Buenos Aires airport.   The former Columbian model was finally captured in Argentina in May of 2010. She is 30 years old and currently facing drug trafficking charges.

  • 4. Svetlana Raznatovic (Ceca)

    Svetlana Raznatovic, or more famously know across Eastern Europe as Ceca, was married to Željko Ražnatović (Arkan), one of the biggest mob bosses in all of Yugoslavia.   Ceca's fame sprouted through a prosperous career as a folk singer. Her fame soared to new heights when she married Arkan. Many described their marriage as a Serbian fairy tale.  Aside from singing, Ceca was known for selling weapons and laundering money.   At the beginning of this year, she was accused of illegal possession of weapons and misappropriating money from football players. After pleading guilty, she was sentenced to one year under house arrest and a hefty fine of 1.5 million Euro.  

  • 3. Griselda Blanco (The Black Widow)

    Griselda is one of the few women to ever make it to the notorious top echelons of drug dealing society. Obviously, drug dealing seems to fall more in the menswear category, but this female Scarface didn’t mind taking the heat.   Griselda Blanco is mostly famous for her part in the Miami drug wars during the late 70s and early 80s. Her propensity for violence, combined with a reputation in the cocaine trade that dwarfed the likes of Pablo Escobar, earns her a spot as one of the most mythologized drug lords in history.   She’s one of the few American drug lords who prospered during the 80s amidst fierce competition when cocaine supplanted marijuana as the drug of choice. Her nickname "The Black Widow" was earned due to a habit of killing her husbands.   The mystery of this remarkable woman persists; her location has been unknown since she was released from prison and deported back to Columbia in 2004.   Her bloody rise to the summit of the drug game and her unique ability to evade pursuers is a story that's stranger than any fiction. It’s also full of sex, money, intrigue, and violence on a scale that defies belief. Who do you think could play her on the silver screen?

  • 2. Queen Mary 1 (Bloody Mary)

    Queen Mary 1 was the first woman to successfully claim the throne of England. In the 16th Century, she established Catholicism as the state religion of Britain.   Her nickname Bloody Mary was earned for the way she forcefully maintained Catholicism in the state by burning over 300 Protestants at the stake.   Now, we all now English women are up-tight, but killing over 300 people because of religion is just unnecessary.

  • 1. Elizabeth Bathory (Countess Dracula)

    Elizabeth was a countess from the renowned Bathory family of Hungarian Nobility. In16th century Hungry, she killed as many as 650 young girls and bathed in their blood to "preserve her youth."   The Hungarian authorities did not execute her as it would have caused a great public scandal, ruining the name of the noble family. She was placed under strict house arrest and her family actually bricked her up alive within her castle.   Mirror, mirror on the wall, who is the baddest of them all?
