René Enríquez (November 24, 1933 – March 23, 1990) was a Nicaraguan-born American television actor of the 1970s and 1980s. He is best-remembered for his role as Lt. Ray Calletano in the long-running television series Hill Street Blues (1981–1987).
He died on March 23, 1990, the first of two Hill Street Blues stars to die that year. Kiel Martin succumbed to lung cancer on December 28.
Co-star Daniel J. Travanti reminisced Enríquez was during his time on Hill Street Blues, "Sad, unhappy because they were not thrilled with him, they kept saying that it was difficult to understand him. He was really crushed when they let him go. ... He was sweet, sweet natured and grateful for what he had there but saddened by being let go.
Enríquez was originally reported to have died of pancreatic cancer. Later reports, based on the publication of his death certificate, indicated that he died of complications caused by AIDS. At one point, Enríquez told Hill Street Blues costar Charles Haid that he had AIDS, as later indicated on Entertainment Tonight in 1992.
