Diego Fernando Murillo Bejarano (born February 23, 1961 in Tuluá , Valle del Cauca ), also Don Berna or Cdte. Known as Adolfo Paz , is a Colombian paramilitary and drug trafficker. He became known as the "General Inspector" of the Autodefensas Unidas de Colombia (AUC) and was the commander of the Cacique Nutibara and Heroes de Granada blocks . He began his criminal career in the Medellín cartel , where he worked as security chief of the drug trafficker "El Negro" Galeano. After Pablo Escobar had killed his boss, he founded together with the Castaño brothers, Carlos Castaño Gil and Fidel Castaño , the Los Pepes that later went up in the paramilitary AUC. In the 1990s, he controlled the dreaded La Terraza gang in Medellín, which he had exterminated when they turned against him. Its structure was called La Oficina and was incorporated into the AUC as Bloque Cacique Nutibara in the late 1990s . Within the AUC, he was third in the hierarchy and was instrumental in the peace talks with the Colombian government in Santa Fé de Ralito.

In May 2008, he was extradited to the United States, where he was charged with large-scale cocaine smuggling. He himself pleaded guilty. On April 22, 2009, he was sentenced to just over 31 years in prison and fined $ 4 million.
