Fernando Del Valle (commonly known as Blackbeard) was a key accountant in the Medellín Cartel leading up to his arrest by the DEA. Blackbeard received his nickname due to his duties of keeping track of Pablo Escobar's buried money stashes, an allusion to the fabled English pirate of the same alias. Upon his capture by the DEA, he is forced to hand over all of the intel on Escobar's money stashes, allowing the Colombian government to retrieve the money.
