Uber Trujillo: Everything About Griselda Blanco’s son

Uber Trujillo

Uber Trujillo is the son of Griselda Blanco. Uber Trujillo’s mother Blanco who was also known as the Black Widow, was a Colombian drug lady of the Medellín Cartel, and in the Miami-based cocaine drug trade and underworld, during the 1980s through the early 2000s. She was shot and killed on September 3, 2012, at the age of 69. 

Uber Trujillo is the second oldest child of Griselda. Uber Trujillo is not the only child of his parents. He had three other siblings. They are his elder brother, Dixon Trujillo, and younger brothers Osvaldo Trujillo and Michael Corleone Blanco.

Uber Trujillo and his brother

His mother, Blanco’s first husband was Carlos Trujillo. Together they had three sons, Dixon, Uber, and Osvaldo. Uber and his brothers were believed to be poorly educated. Uber and his brothers were introduced to the cocaine business at a very young age by their mother.

Uber’s brother, Dixon represented the family in San Francisco, moving 660 pounds of cocaine a month. Arrested in 1985, he was convicted in Miami a year later along with his mother and Osvaldo. Dixon was serving 10 years in federal prison.

Just a few months after Rayful Edmond III, an American former drug trafficker in Washington, D.C. in the 1980s was sent to prison for the rest of his life for running the District’s largest-ever cocaine operation, he met Uber Trujillo’s brothers, Dixon and Osvaldo who would propel him into a whole new realm of drug dealing.

Uber’s elder brother, Dixon was sharing the same cellblock with Edmond at the Lewisburg, Pa., federal penitentiary. His brother, Osvaldo, was just a cellblock away. The way federal authorities tell it, the three quickly became friends. After all, they had a lot in common. Besides similar convictions for drug dealing, all three were mama’s boys, raised by tough women who taught them their trade.

Before they were sent to prison, the three men were among the largest cocaine dealers in the nation; all three made millions and spent their money with flair, often frequenting the same pricey stores on Rodeo Drive in Beverly Hills.

But they had never met until the winter of 1990 in Lewisburg. By then, Lewisburg was bustling with convicted drug dealers, and according to some federal officials, the dealers were doing a bustling business inside the prison, setting up deals for friends on the inside and the outside.

Uber Trujillo’s brothers, Dixon and Osvaldo were from the supply side of the cocaine world, sons of Griselda Blanco, a leader of a large organization affiliated with the Medellin drug cartel, the original Colombian cocaine-exporting group based in the city of Medellin. They would become Edmond’s new Colombian cocaine connection, a replacement for his suppliers from the Cali cartel — a second, upstart cocaine-exporting group that he had helped make a major competitor of the Medellin group in this country. Edmond’s Cali suppliers went to prison when he did.

When Edmond met Dixon Trujillo-Blanco and his brother, the brothers were two years away from being paroled, but they had plenty of drug connections to offer. And Edmond had plenty of customers eager to do business.

The Trujillo-Blanco brothers were paroled in early 1992 and were back in Colombia. To reach them, Edmond simply made collect calls to Washington area associates who patched him through to the brothers via conference calls and the three get to do their deals.

In mid-1992, Edmond persuaded Dixon Trujillo-Blanco’s brother, Osvaldo Trujillo-Blanco not to kill Jackson and Corbin, who had not paid him for cocaine delivered to them. Instead, the Colombian upped his price by $10,000 a kilogram — to $26,000 — to make up for his losses. Osvaldo Trujillo-Blanco, 25, was killed a few months later in a Colombian nightclub. Dixon Trujillo-Blanco was also later killed in Colombia.
