Narcos Location Scout Carlos Muñoz Portal Found Dead in Mexico

Narcos Location Scout Carlos Muñoz Portal Found Dead in Mexico

The bullet-riddled body of Carlos Muñoz Portal and his auto were found Monday in a remote area in central Mexico close to the border of Hidalgo, which has one of the highest murder rates in Mexico, Variety reported Saturday.

Carlos Munoz Portal was found dead in his auto in a remote area of Mexico state. He was 37 years old.

He was found in his vehicle "riddled with bullets" in Hidalgo, which has one of the highest murder rates in the country. According to Variety, there were 182 homicide cases in the month of July alone.

Narcos, which most recently handled the Colombia's Cali cartel's rise and fall in season 3, was preparing to shift focus on cartels in Mexico. That works out to a ratio of 12.2 for every 100,000 inhabitants.

Variety reports that Netflix issued the following statement. "The facts surrounding his death are still unknown as authorities continue to investigate what happened". 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.

Munoz was a graduate of the University of the Americas and had 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 confirmed his passing to the Daily News. It's now unclear if Portal's death will affect production or whether the murder will move production back to Columbia.
