Clavo Cruz. Cruz claims Horatio Caine cannot arrest him due to diplomatic immunity. Horatio Caine first manages to arrest his "brother" Ramon Cruz, when he makes the mistake of traveling into international waters. Finally Horatio arrests Clavo as well when it turns out he is not Antonio's son. Clavo later escapes.

In the season 5 episode, Man Down, after his biological father abandoned him and had nothing to live for, Clavo approaches Horatio with his gun drawn, knowing Horatio would shoot him; effectively committing suicide by cop.

Modus OpernadiEdit

Clavo had varied methods of killing when he killed his victims, such as hitting with a car and stabbing. He later shot his victims with a gun he took from a bailiff. His proxy victims were also killed differently (i.e., strangled by a snake Clavo brought into the country, drug overdosing, bombing, and shooting).
