A blonde drug smuggler and OnlyFans model says she is finally returning home – and shared a selfie looking very different to her prison days.

Australian Cassandra Sainsbury spent six years behind bars in Colombia after being caught trying to smuggle 5.8kg of cocaine out of the country in 2017.

The 26-year-old, dubbed "Cocaine Cassie", announced on Instagram that she is heading back home “really soon”, a year after being released less than half way through her sentence.

When coronavirus broke out, Colombia’s notorious and overcrowded El Buen Pastor prison was forced to place a number of inmates on early parole.

She followed the news up in a second story post to say her return would be “sooner rather than later” but did not disclose a date.

Sainsbury said she is looking forward to the Australian weather

Former personal trainer, Sainsbury, told her followers what she was most excited about when back in Australia, News.com.au reports.

She replied to a question: “I’m looking forward to the weather, the beaches … I guess the food as well. Everything.”

Followers of hers on social media have seen the convicted drug-runner flaunt a dramatic weight loss over the last 12 months of freedom in Colombia.

In a new TikTok video with long blonde hair, Sainsbury jokes that she would rather go back to prison than date men again.

She started seeing women in prison and later became engaged to a Venezuelan woman Joli Pico but the relationship ended following her release from jail.

Sainsbury claimed her attempt to smuggle was done under duress

A racy snap of Sainsbury, which showed her distinctive hip flower tattoo, circulated online leading to claims she was cashing in on photos of herself.

Having first denied the suggestions, the smuggler now openly promotes her OnlyFans account on Instagram.

Sainsbury claimed her attempt to smuggle was done under duress, saying her family were being threatened but has never been able to provide evidence of this.
