  • Netflix's 'Narcos' Producer Murdered in Mexico

Narcos, which has dealt with Columbian cocaine kingpin Pablo Escobar, was going to set season 4 in Mexico and feature the Juarez cartel.

A locations manager for the Netflix crime drama Narcos was found dead in his vehicle in rural Mexico on Monday. The Hollywood Reporter states that Munoz was murdered on Monday, September 11 in a rural area of the country, outside Mexico City. That works out to a ratio of 12.2 for every 100,000 inhabitants. The film company issued a short statement acknowledging the filmmaker's passing - claiming that the case was still under investigation. Authorities are reportedly having trouble piecing together what happened leading up the Portal's death, and police are still investigating. 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. "Muñoz was a seasoned veteran filmmaker to find filming locations for the major USA film productions working in Mexico". While there are no concrete details as to the backstory behind the man's murder, sources are saying that local authorities continue to gather information concerning the details of the homicide.
