Locations Manager For Netflix Show 'Narcos' Killed In Mexico; Body Had Gunshot Wounds

Netflix's 'Narcos' Producer Murdered in Mexico

It's now unclear if Portal's death will affect production or whether the murder will move production back to Columbia. Officials found his body was found inside his vehicle in the town of San Bartolo Actopan, Infobae reported. That works out to a ratio of 12.2 for every 100,000 inhabitants. Variety reports that 182 people were killed there previous year. While there are no concrete details as to the backstory behind the man's murder, sources are saying that local authorities continue to gather information concerning the details of the homicide. According to a spokesperson for the Attorney General of the State of Mexico, there are now no witnesses because of the depopulated area. This has caused authorities to believe a persecution may have occurred. "We do not know if he was in Hidalgo and from there they followed him or if he was in the State of Mexico and tried to flee towards Hidalgo", spokesman for the State Attorney's office Claudio Barrera said.

Unclear if Portal's death will derail production.

Netflix issued the following statement: "We are aware of the passing of Carlos Munoz Portal, a well-respected location scout, and send our condolences to his family".
