Forums GTA Discussion on Maria's supposed death

She dies in GTA III, she gets shot because she talks too much, Claude killed her. it isn't said that he shoots a warning shot to quiet her, it isn't even implied Qwerty4965324 19:56, December 29, 2009 (UTC)

And neither does it say that he killed her and as there is no evidence that she is dead, we can not say for certain that she is dead. A-Dust 21:35, December 29, 2009 (UTC)
Do you honestly think that Claude would risk his life, an pay 500 thousand dollars to save Maria, if he was just going to kill her for being annoying. I don't think so. It's implied that it was a warning shot, his way of telling her to shut up, because he doesn't talk. Grand Theft AJ 23:41, December 29, 2009 (UTC)
It's also implied that he killed her. The fact that Maria is nowhere to be found when Claude returns to his apartment in Shoreside Vale also implies that he killed her. Kevin70 13:41, January 17, 2010 (UTC)
I'll say it gain: Do you honestly think that Claude would risk his life, an pay 500 thousand dollars to save Maria, if he was just going to kill her for being annoying. I don't think so. It's implied that it was a warning shot, his way of telling her to shut up, because he doesn't talk. Grand Theft AJ 20:01, January 17, 2010 (UTC)
Yes, I do. It's also implied that he killed her. She annoyed him so it's possible that he blew her brains out. The fact that Maria is nowhere to be found when Claude returns to his apartment in Shoreside Vale also implies that he killed her. Kevin70 20:52, January 17, 2010 (UTC)
It is possible that the shot was to kill her but it is also possible that the shot was to simply shut her up. Either way, there is no evidence in the game that she was killed and Rockstar Games themselves have refused to state the reason for the shot. There is no way to be sure either way and the article, in the Trivia section, reflects this. A-Dust 21:36, January 17, 2010 (UTC)
I know that. I'm just stating what I believe. I'm actually surprised that some people think that Maria didn't die. When I finished the game in 2002, I immediately thought that Claude killed her. Now that I think about it, I guess it is possible that he merely scared her. It's too bad that Rockstar doesn't want to end the mystery. Kevin70 21:52, January 17, 2010 (UTC)
The reason for Maria not returning after the end is because she has no purpose, not because she could be dead. Until the fourth era of GTA introduced Friendship Activities, main characters didn't return because they had no reason to. Grand Theft AJ 00:13, January 18, 2010 (UTC)
Alright alright, I'm sorry. Kevin70 13:17, January 18, 2010 (UTC)

i think it up to player to think what happend that the fun part of the end to me catlina survies crash and claude shoots her

Actually, I was reading the Rockstar FAQ a few days ago when I read this about someone asking about Marias death, the answer was: A shot was fired, but nobody knows what really happend. I can't remember the link now, but I will search for it again. Chimpso 13:46, January 18, 2010 (UTC)
It's the same link that confirmed Vic died: [1]. Based on the audio file, if the game didn't end with a shot fired, Maria still has more to say.--Spaceeinstein 16:39, January 18, 2010 (UTC)

(undent) i really doubt if Claude gave the 500000 bucks only to save maria, i think he went there to kill catalina and take his revenge. i also doubt if maria returned to her apartment in saint marks, mainly because saint marks is leone territory and the leones would be kinda hostile to her after she betrayed salvatore. although i don't think claude killed her, most possibly he fired the gun to make her stop talkingDumbnigga94 12:28, February 14, 2010 (UTC)

Maria's very pretty in GTA III, more so than she is in GTA LCS...
Hmm, about this issue concerning Maria's fate. I highly doubt Claude actually killed her, after all the trouble he went through to rescue her. But here are some possibilities as to why he fired his gun:
  1. As stated by GTAJ above, he probably wanted her to stop talking, and he wouldn't put it into words because he doesn't talk.
  2. They ran into a Columbian that Claude didn't kill on his way in. Not likely, but still possible.
  3. Someone else fired the gun, possibly as an ambush that may or may not have killed Maria.
Assuming Claude did kill her, here could be some reasons why:
  1. For the first time, Maria stated that she loved him. Claude had a very bad track record with Catalina, and didn't want to take chances with anyone else.
  2. Claude just wanted to get back at Catalina, and Maria happened to be there. He remembered how Maria also betrayed her husband, Salvatore, and didn't want it to happen to him.
  3. Claude wanted to completely cut his ties with everyone he worked with. Donald Love went missing, Asuka and Kenji are dead, he is an enemy to the Leone family, and Ray Machowski has left Liberty City. It's unknown why, but maybe Claude just didn't want to kill for a living and end up in jail again.

I think Claude killed Maria.Claude dosen't care about people.He will kill anyone with no hesitation. When Maria was talking Claude was probably like in his mind,"Will this idiot stop talking." Claude left the murder scene while cops were investigating it. Claude was the only one with a gun in his hand. It is very obvious. This website believes Maria probably got killed.—Preceding unsigned comment added by TV112 (talkcontribs) Please remember to sign your talk page messages with ~~~~.
As long as Rockstar has left it a mystery, we have to leave it one too. We can't just jump to conclusions. This is why the articel does not say that Maria died/survived. Chimpso (Talk) 02:16, July 7, 2010 (UTC)
Okay just to let you all know, Maria's apartment is in Portland View, not Saint Mark's, even though she is close to there. Also my opinion to Maria's death, I agree with AJ. If Claude really wanted Catalina dead and not rescue Maria then, he would've asked Phil Cassidy for the tank he has at his base, then blow up the whole Cartel House. And another question, because I'm confused: Why is Maria's last name Latore, instead of Leone since she married Salvatore? --Mega Sean 45 12:32, October 7, 2010 (UTC)
Let's all be rational about this, why would Claude want to risk his life to rescue Maria, then only to turn around and kill her, I doubt he would've thought "It's only $500,000, fuck it I'll swallow it, I know what I'll do, I'll pay Catalina then I'll kill Maria myself." I mean if he did kill her, he must have a really short memory 'cause back in Portland she saved his life by paging him to tell him that the car was a trap, I think maybe Catalina had jumped helicopter and wanted to finish off both Maria and Claude, but Claude got to Catalina first and killed her 'cause she tried to kill him back when they went to rob that bank, I bet after that Maria decided that maybe it was time to leave Liberty City as her husband was dead, her best friend Asuka was dead, maybe she went to Francis International and moved back to Las Venturas or moved to Vice City, you never know maybe if she did, Claude would come after she had settled in and they could be together. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Gregallz5 (talkcontribs) Please remember to sign your talk page messages with ~~~~.
That is an interesting idea, and would make a nice fanfic. Unfortunately, I think it was as simple as Claude either shooting Maria (which I don't think he did) or shooting into the air (which I think he did). Winter Moon 22:24, June 19, 2011 (UTC)
I think he shot her. That's the implication. Claude didn't give a shit about Maria, he's just a hollow character. He went to the mansion with the money because he wanted revenge on Catalina, she says "did you come to save Maria or to get me back?" After the mission, his job is done, he has his revenge and just wants to chill, without a moaning bitch in his ear. NT92 01:19, July 28, 2011 (UTC)
I think he shot her as well. Claude didn't care about anyone he worked for, and betrayed many of them just to get his money. He never wanted friends or nothing, he was all about business. He would do anything, no matter how dark or cold, as long as he gets his money at the end. Plus, how did Claude get money after the mission? I think he shot Maria for her cash because he had to waste $500,000 on her, and as I said earlier, Claude cares only about the money.GSFOG14 03:05, April 22, 2012 (UTC)
If he didn't want to listen to Maria, then he'd have probably just ran off without her. But if he wanted the money, he could've just shot her straight away instead of listening to her. ~~~~
