A female assassin who admits she ‘loves to kill people’ has laid bare the brutal human cost of the drug trade.
In last night’s episode of Doing Drugs For Fun on Channel 5, four Brits who occasionally take cocaine on nights out travelled to Medellín, Colombia, which is at the centre of wars between cartels trying to control the drug trade.
Chanel, 25, from Bristol met with a woman who called herself The Devil, who admitted she’s killed several people since being drawn into the cartel aged 15, including pregnant women and her own cousin, and said she’s learned to ‘love’ it.
She added that eight days earlier she’d chopped up a man and dumped his body in the river because he’d refused to kill someone else.
Viewers were shocked by the segment, with one writing: ‘She killed a guy because he refused to kill someone else? WTF Lucifer’s daughter is Colombian.’
Other viewers called out the show’s participants as ‘privileged’ and careless.
‘This #DoingDrugsForFun programme was good……. hope they run the programme again in 10 years when some of them are bankrupt, lost their families and have got serious mental health issues. Because that’s what really happens, in real life,’ one wrote.
In the show, the four Brits traveled around Colombia to meet with cartel members, locals, cocaine farmers and authorities to get a grasp of just how dangerous their party drug habits are to Colombian communities.
Chanel went to meet a cartel assassin, who said she’d been forced into a life of crime, which she wouldn’t have chosen for herself, but added that it was representative of the ‘kill or be killed’ reality of cartel life in Colombia.
‘I liked getting paid to kill,’ she said, as she met with Chanel in a remote cabin, owned by the cartel.
‘I love the madness. Not when I was a little girl, but from the age of 15 I’ve loved seeing things fall down around me,’ she added.
When Chanel, asked the hit woman when her last hit was, the woman explained she had killed a man eight days prior in very graphic terms.
‘Eight days ago I killed a guy because he wouldn’t kill someone else,’ she said.
‘We chopped him up, put him in a bag, and threw him in the river and goodbye,’ she added. ‘Nobody is going to see him again.’
Pressed by an increasingly shocked Chanel, the woman admitted to killing her own cousin in order to save her own life, saying the cartel would have had her murdered if she’d refused to do it.
Later on, the woman delved into how ruthless her assassin job could be, saying she killed many men and even pregnant women and didn’t ‘give a s***.’
‘I will carry on until I get killed, until that’s it,’ she said, ‘there’s no turning back.’
Chanel was in deep thought following her one-to-one with the woman.
‘What can you say, really,’ she said, ‘it’s f****** disgusting.’
‘If there weren’t cartels running the streets of Colombia, people like her wouldn’t exist. She would have had a completely different career route.’
In the documentary, we learned that a crushing majority of the children in Medellín would be forced into joining the cartels or trafficked for sexual purposes, and many would lose their lives doing so.
18,000 children were recruited by the cartels in the past decade.
The realisation that their party habits had a direct impact on the lives of many children came as a shock for Chanel, Troi, Louis and Amber.
