Carlos Munoz Portal, a location scout for the Netflix series Narcos, was found dead this week while scouting locations for the upcoming fourth season of the show.

According to Variety, the 37-year-old's bullet-riddled body and vehicle were found in a remote area near the borders of Hidalgo state, a hugely violent area of the country.

Narcos season 4 is said to delving into the origins of the Juarez cartel in Mexico, following season 3's focus on Colombia's Cali cartel.
