A translation of the article from El Pais says that Carlos Muñoz Portal, 37, "was killed Monday (September 11) in a rural area of ..."

Portal was there checking out possible filming locations for season 4 of "Narcos".

More broadly, though, Narcos was reportedly set to focus season four on Mexico's infamous Juarez cartel - and the fact that Munoz Portal was killed in that area and found "bullet-riddled" in his auto may speak for itself as far as who's responsible for the violence. "Muñoz was a seasoned veteran filmmaker to find filming locations for the major U.S. film productions working in Mexico".

Narcos is a hit series about the rise and fall of Colombian drug lord Pablo Escobar, and Portal was working as a freelancer for its fourth season, which will reportedly focus on the notorious Juárez drug cartel in Mexico.

The network added that circumstances surrounding the death remain unclear.

Mexican news outlet Milenio report that he was found with several gunshot wounds on a dirt road in San Bartolo Actopan near the city of Temascalapa. The site is located to the northeast of the State of Mexico, very close to the border with Hidalgo.

There are no specifics yet on what happened, but he was last seen heading out to the State of Mexico for some production photographs.

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