Frank Lucas had a unique business model. He would procure heroin directly from opium king Khun Sa in Vietnam. Lucas hid heroin in coffins and flew them in from Vietnam to the United States. He was supposedly making $1 million a day at the peak of his business, and had an estimated $52 million stashed away in the Cayman Islands.
