A locations manager for the Netflix show Narcos was killed Monday in a rural area of Mexico known for gang-related drug violence.

Portal was reportedly heading out to obtain some production photographs.

He was found in his vehicle "riddled with bullets" in Hidalgo, which has one of the highest murder rates in the country. In July, 182 cases of homicide were reported in the densely populated state, a ratio of 12.2 for every 100,000 inhabitants. Police are reportedly struggling to figure out how or why Munoz was killed. A spokesman for the Attorney General of the State of Mexico spoke out about the tragedy, releasing a statement that has been translated from Spanish to English as follows: "Given the depopulated [area], we have no witnesses". This has caused authorities to believe a persecution may have occurred.

Portal was there checking out possible filming locations for season 4 of "Narcos". The Hollywood Reporter, though, reports, "Narcos season 4 moves from Colombia to Mexico and it centers on the fearsome Juarez cartel". "The facts surrounding his death are still unknown as authorities continue to investigate", said a statement issued by Netflix.

The experienced location scout had worked on several high profile films including Mel Gibson's Apocalypto, Fast & Furious and the James Bond film Spectre. We'll update you as we know more.
