Netflix's 'Narcos' Producer Murdered in Mexico

A location scout for hit Netflix show Narcos was shot dead in Mexico while looking for places to film the programme's fourth season. The third and most recent season provided a look at the fall of Cartel de Cali and the corruption at the highest levels of the Colombian government including that nation's president; the U.S. Department of State was allegedly aware of the complicity. It's also unclear if this sudden death will delay or halt production of the show. It is not known why, but Carlos' body was found hours later in the compact auto with several shots. The vehicle was found on an unnamed dirt road in San Bartolo Actopan, part of the municipality of Temascalapa. That works out to a ratio of 12.2 for every 100,000 inhabitants.

"The facts surrounding his death are still unknown as authorities continue to investigate".

According to The Hollywood Reporter, "Munoz was an experienced location manager who had worked on numerous Hollywood productions in Mexico, including Tony Scott's Man on Fire, Mel Gibson's Apocalypto and the latest Bond film Spectre".
