Carlos Muñoz Portal, a location scout for the Netflix series Narcos (screenshot of the show, above) who had been working to find places to shoot for season four, is now dead after his "bullet-riddled body" and vehicle were found in a remote area near the borders of the Hidalgo state of Mexico, according to reports.

Netflix has said that the circumstances of his death are "still unknown". The Hollywood Reporter, though, reports, "Narcos season 4 moves from Colombia to Mexico and it centers on the fearsome Juarez cartel".
