Colombian police say the son of ‘Cuco’ Vanoy, a paramilitary warlord extradited to the U.S. on drug charges, has been murdered.
Authorities say unidentified assailants shot and killed 32-year-old
Vladimir Vanoy on Sunday at the gate to his condominium outside Bogota.
“Cuco” Vanoy is Validmir’s father. He was extradited to the United
States in May with 13 other far-right warlords. A Miami judge earlier
this month sentenced him to 24 years in prison on drug-trafficking
After the sentencing, the newspaper El Tiempo quoted one
of his lawyers as saying he would no longer cooperate with
investigations into crimes associated with far-right militias.
But El Tiempo later quoted a top prosecutor as saying “Cuco” Vanoy would cooperate.
