Who is June Hawkins in Griselda, and where is she now?

The latest Netflix miniseries to take the world by storm tells the story of Griselda Blanco, also known as the “Cocaine Godmother” and “Black Widow”. The series is based on true events, broadly following the journey of how Griselda became one of the most notorious Columbian drug lords in history.

It’s an utterly gripping story, and so it’s hardly surprising people across the globe want to know more – where are Griselda’s children now, what happened to her three (?!) husbands, and just how did actress Sofia Vergara transform into Griselda?

The more that comes to light about the true story, the more mind-boggling it is – specifically how her gender enabled her to evade the police for a long time, with many refusing to believe a woman could be behind such an enterprise.
