Events of Criminal Case
Carlton became a suspect after the player and Maddie found his cat at the scene of the murder. When Maddie asked him about the victim, he said that she had been creating noise for weeks, and that the police had done nothing about it. However, when Maddie explained that she had been murdered, he was shocked and said that if he could think of anyone who would want to harm her, he would let them know.
Carlton was spoken to again about a brick that he had thrown through the victim's window. He revealed that Jade had swindled him out of his retirement fund, and that when he asked for his money back, she had played coy and said that it was all gone. When Maddie proposed that Carlton had killed the victim out of anger, he replied indignantly that he may have been upset but he wasn't a murderer.
Carlton was found to be innocent after the team incarcerated Gail Harper for Jade's murder.
