Location scout for Netflix's 'Narcos' shot dead in Mexico

Location Scout for Netflix's ‘Narcos’ Shot

More broadly, though, Narcos was reportedly set to focus season four on Mexico's infamous Juarez cartel - and the fact that Munoz Portal was killed in that area and found "bullet-riddled" in his vehicle may speak for itself as far as who's responsible for the violence. He was 37 years old.

According to Variety, the 37-year-old's bullet-riddled body and auto were found in a remote area near the borders of Hidalgo state, a hugely violent area of the country.

Narcos, which has dealt with Columbian cocaine kingpin Pablo Escobar, was going to set season 4 in Mexico and feature the Juarez cartel. "Last July, 182 cases were registered, a rate of 12.2 per 100,000 inhabitants".

Netflix released a statement today expressing their condolences and stressing that details on what happened are still being sorted out.

"The facts surrounding his death are still unknown as authorities continue to investigate". They are supposedly considering a move to Columbia for the next season of filming, which is where the show had started out before moving to Mexico.

A graduate from the University of the Americas, Munoz has been working in the film industry for more than decade as a locations manager.

He worked on films such as Man on Fire, Apocalypto, Fast and Furious and Spectre. Netflix nor anyone associated with the show supplied any further comments about the passing of their valued crew member. Nor confirmation either way had been made public by Netflix at the time of this writing. Police are now investigating the circumstances of Portal's death.
