Helmer Herrera, commonly known as Pacho, was a Colombian drug smuggler and one of the four godfathers of the Cali Cartel. Herrera oversaw smuggling routes through Mexico, and controlled a loyal army of sicarrios who maintained law & order in the cartel's territory.

Openly homosexual, Herrera was infamous for his notoriety and was feared all over Colombia during the cartel's peak in 1995. He fronted the war of retribution against the Medellín Cartel and later the Norte del Valle cartel, leading to his death in 1998 while imprisoned.
