- "What the fuck are you doing now, man? You're fucking crazy!"
- ―Vega (from Predator 2)
As the leader of the Colombian Scorpions' operations in East LA, Vega was a powerful figure in the Los Angeles drug scene and he owned a luxurious high-rise apartment.
While in his apartment making love to his mistress, several members of the Jamaican Voodoo Posse burst in, led by Gold Tooth, and they strung him up, naked, by his ankles from the ceiling. As the Jamaicans began a ritual designed to strip him of his spiritual power as well as his life, Vega begged for mercy, even offering money in exchange for a chance to flee the city. The Jamaicans were not interested, and after telling him that "shit happens", Gold Tooth cut out his heart.
