Just a note that I really didn't feel a need to do a fugitive profile or case summary here since it's already in the above posted wanted poster from the police department.
As mentioned above, Larios is a Mexican Mafia hitman wanted for a 1995 murder. Unfortunately not a lot of details on the murder itself, but I think it goes without saying this is a very dangerous man that's been unaccounted for in the last 20 years.

I have a book by Tony Rafael on the Mexican Mafia and I really wished there was a detailed case description available for Carlos Larios. After 20 years on the run, he could still be involved in organized crime or he could have become like GangTecc fugitive and fellow Mexican Mafia member Rene Morales Munoz and assumed a legitimate life under an alias (Morales was selling timeshares to tourists in Mexico).

I found Carlos Larios's archived FBI poster which goes into more detail about the case. The murder was a result of Carlos collecting a debt. As Carlos fled, another person shot at him and he received shotgun pellet wounds and may now even be missing his left eye.
Carlos Larios is still at large as of 12/31/2017 according to San Diego County's online warrants search. They spell his middle name as "Eurique" as opposed to Enrique. Assuming it could be a type-o, but figured it was worth mentioning just in case.
As of today, June 8, 2021, Carlos Larios still has a listed warrant in the San Diego County public warrants directory.
Additionally, according to Newspapers.com articles, the victim in this case is 27-year old Scott Ira Kaufman. I'm mentioning this out of respect to Scott's family. I also found out that Carlos was actually arrested in Mexico right after Scott was killed. However, Mexican authorities gave authorities in Escondido 72 hours to complete their investigation and file and translate an extradition request. By the time they did all of that, Carlos was let out on bond and he fled again. *sigh*
There was a UFAP warrant against Larios but it was dismissed on May 30th, 2012. The "good news" if you want to call it that is that it was dimissed without prejudice, so it can always be re-issued if there's new information about Larios in a foreign country I'm assuming.
