María Teresa Osorio: new World’s most Wanted

Known under María Teresa Correa, María Teresa De Serna, Gloria Bedoya and Iris Conde, five foot María weighs 135 pounds and has brown hair.

Practically unknown in her native Colombia, Maria Teresa Osorio has now replaced Joaquín ‘El Chapo’ Guzmán as the world’s most wanted woman, charged with money laundering and smuggling cocaine into the U.S.

El Chapo now faces extradition and sentencing in the U.S., where no less than six charges have been made against him for his drug trafficking and illegal activities.

Links to Colombia’s once notorious Medellín cartel have recently come to light, BBC Mundo reports. Osorio currently has no charges against her in the Latin American country, yet is facing arrest and sentencing by the U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA).

Osorio, who it is believed was born in 1945 or 1950, is something of a ghost. She is believed to have been laundering large sums of money.

Her last known address in the U.S. was Hialeah, Miami.

It is thought that Osorio is hiding out in her native Colombia.
