Alan Tomlinson reports from Miami on the trail of Fabio Ochoa, one of the founders of the Medellin drug cartel. Ochoa is charged as being one of the masterminds of a drug ring that smuggled up to 30 tons of cocaine a month into the United States. Ochoa claims he's innocent. Most of the evidence against him is based on testimony from other members of the cartel, testifying in exchange for lighter sentences.
