Status Deceased (1998)

Delia was one of several Colombian women who worked as drug mules for Ramiro, on behalf of drug dealer Cortez in 1998. She was doing this to help her son, who was in prison and whose wife had left him.

On September 28, 1998, Delia, along with a younger woman, Ana Castilla, flew from Bogota to Philadelphia after ingesting several packets (or "cookies") full of heroin. Not too long after reaching Ramiro, Delia began to feel ill. After it became clear that one of the cookies had burst, Ramiro had his man Hector cut her open to retrieve the rest.

Delia's murder remained unsolved until 2006, when Hector was arrested for the murders of Delia and Ana.
