Narcos Location Scout Carlos Muñoz Portal Found Dead in Mexico

Netflix

A locations manager working for the Netflix series "Narcos" was killed while scouting in Mexico. 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. He was a seasoned scout and worked for Stacy Perskie's Mexico City-based production company Redrum. The infamous Juárez cartel was briefly featured in the most recent season.

Portal was reportedly heading out to obtain some production photographs. His body was found in a compact vehicle with several gun shot wounds hours after leaving for the site. His auto was found parked on an unnamed dirt road in the San Bartolo Actopan area. That entity, the most populated of the country, is the one that has more homicides.

The Spanish daily reported that there are no witnesses and that a friend of the victim thinks it's possible that "the presence of a foreigner with a camera was uncomfortable for the inhabitants, frightened by the insecurity of the region".

A Netflix statement said, "We are aware of the passing of Carlos Muñoz Portal, a well-respected location scout, and send our condolences to his family".

Portal's ten-year career included scouting locations for high-profile movies such as the latest James Bond movie, Spectre, as well as Fast & Furious and Apocalypto. Authorities are reportedly having trouble piecing together what happened leading up the Portal's death, and police are still investigating.
