'Narcos' locations manager killed while scouting in Mexico

Netflix

The Narcos series provides a dramatized version of the historical events dealing with the drug cartels and criminal organizations responsible for most of the violence in Central and South America, and most recently in Mexico.

37-year-old Carlos Munoz was a location manager for the drug drama epic Narcos, reportedly seeking out new locations for the show's fourth season which was moving the action from Columbia to Mexico.

Carlos Muñoz Portal, who was 37 years old, was found dead in his vehicle. It remains to be seen if the production will move forward with Mexico locations for season 4. The first two seasons of the show looked at the rise and fall of Pablo Escobar, the leader of the Cartel de Medellin.

Police have said they are having difficulty investigating the circumstances of the death, as there is a lack of witnesses due to the area's sparse population. The vehicle was on an unnamed dirt road in the community of San Bartolo Actopan, in the municipality of Temascalapa.

Treasury's Mnuchin says no tax cut for wealthy
A treasury spokesperson told ABC that Mnuchin lodged his honeymoon travel request out of a desire to uphold security standards. The commenter, OR resident Jennifer Miller, wrote an op-ed for CNN saying Linton was the one who is out of touch.

Portal was reportedly heading out to obtain some production photographs. That entity, the most populated of the country, is the one that has more homicides.

He had previously contributed to films such as Apocalypto, Fast & Furious, Sicario, and Spectre.

Netflix has since issued a statement paying their respects to Munoa and his family.
