Now that the infamous leader of the Sinaloa Cartel,  Joaquin El Chapo Guzman, is back in prison, the U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) has already set their sights on another drug trafficker considered to be a high priority target.

The DEA has now listed a 65-year-old Colombian woman known as the “narco ghost”, as the most wanted drug trafficker in the United States.

According to the DEA, Maria Teresa Osorio de Serna, who also goes by multiple aliases, including Maria Teresa Correa, Gloria Bedoya, Iris Conde and Tyler Washington, is wanted for major drug-related crimes including money laundering and cocaine conspiracy violations.

Despite the fact she has remained on the DEA’s most-wanted list since 2005, Osorio Serna remains an enigma and a mystery to the Colombian authorities. The DEA is the only organization that has information about this woman, who is believed to have laundered money for Pablo Escobar’s Medellin Cartel.

U.S. law enforcement agencies have only one known photograph of Osorio de la Serna; she stands at five feet tall, 135 lbs with dark eyes and dark hair, full lips, high cheekbones, abundant and well-arched eyebrows, high forehead, small chin with a fixed and firm gaze.

The DEA’s records are also inconsistent regarding her date of birth and her most recent place of residence.

Although Medellin, Colombia would be the likeliest place for a mystery woman with this kind of clandestine nature to lay low, U.S. Federal agents are not ruling out the possibility that she could even be living somewhere in the United States.

With Guzman likely to be extradited to the U.S., Osorio de Serna has now become the top priority for the U.S. government along with heroin kingpin John Alexander Thomson, who is believed to be of African or Caribbean origin according to BBC Mundo.
