As part of a joint investigation between NPR and the PBS documentary series, "Frontline," Deborah Amos talks to members of the notorious Ochoa Family, in Medellin, Colombia. The Ochoa's are known as major partners in the Medellin Drug Cartel, running huge amounts of illegal cocaine from the jungles of South America, to the streets of North American cities. Fabio Ochoa, the youngest, was arrested last week as part of a joint American-Colombian raid. Family members insist they are no longer in the drug business.
