Netflix's 'Narcos' Producer Murdered in Mexico

A producer for the Netflix crime drama Narcos has been shot dead in central Mexico while looking for new locations. He was reportedly found riddled with bullets in his vehicle in a remote area near Hidalgo, which is known to have one of the highest murder rates in Mexico. "Last July, 182 cases were registered, a rate of 12.2 per 100,000 inhabitants".

Netflix issued a brief statement to The Hollywood Reporter, saying, "We are aware of the passing of Carlos Munoz Portal, a well-respected scout, and send our condolences to his family".

Season 4 of "Narcos" is said to be exploring the origins of Mexico's infamous Juarez cartel just as season 3 focused on the rise and fall of Colombia's Cali cartel, Variety reported. "The facts surrounding his death are still unknown as authorities continue to investigate what happened".
