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.
An assassin working for a Colombia cartel agreed to speak on camera about the ‘kill or be killed’ nature of life in Medellín, for the Channel 5 show Doing Drugs For Fun
Chanel, a 25-year-old casual cocaine user from Bristol, was left very uneasy by her interaction with the ruthless assassin
Viewers were shocked by the assassin’s tale, calling her ‘Lucifer’s daughter’ and agreeing the exchange between the woman and Chanel was ‘heavy’
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.
Chanel traveled to a remote part of the Colombia rain forest in order to meet the woman at a cabin owned by the cartel
Whilst they found the show interesting, some viewers felt the four Brits traveling to Colombia were ‘privileged’
‘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.
The woman, who started working for the cartel as an assassin aged 15, said she liked to be paid to kill
The hit woman added she had killed pregnant women and her cousin, as otherwise, she would have been killed by her boss
‘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.
Chanel, who seemed really shocked by what she was hearing, asked the woman if there was any rules to the assassin lifesty;e. The woman said there weren’t, and added she ‘didn’t give a s***’
For the Brit, the interaction was eye-opening, as it showed how much of an impact her party drug had in Colombia
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.’
The woman said she would be an assassin until she was killed by someone else, in the heavy interview
‘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.
The last part of Doing Drugs for Fun airs tonight at 9pm on Channel 5.
