Carlito was a member of the drug gang led by Rafael Santos. When he and the rest of the gang captured Drs. Alan Grant and Ellie Sattler, he overheard Sattler telling Grant that they had no friends in the drug compound over the microphone. He then claimed that he would be perfectly willing to "be her friend", claiming that he wanted the opportunity to sleep with her. He then asks Rafael for any drugs to put Sattler "in the mood," intending to rape her. However, Rafael pulled a gun on Carlito and shot him dead, as he claimed that he had promised his mother to always treat women with respect. Rafael later told two other gang members, Tonio and Solo to get rid of Carlito's body.
