Netflix's 'Narcos' Location Scout Shot & Killed On the Job in Mexcio

Mexico, a violent region in the center of the country, while looking for locations for the filming of the Narcos series by Netflix, which will arrive in Mexico in its fourth season.

Carlos Muñoz Portal, the location scout for Netflix's "Narcos", was fatally shot this week while on the job in Mexico scouting for season four. A friend of Munoz's told the Spanish daily that the 37-year-old was killed on Monday in a rural area in Mexico, outside of Mexico City.

Police have said they are having difficulty investigating the circumstances of the death, as there is a lack of witnesses due to the area's sparse population. The vehicle was found on an unnamed dirt road in San Bartolo Actopan, part of the municipality of Temascalapa.
