Carlos Muñoz Portal, a location scout for the Netflix series Narcos (screenshot of the show, above) who had been working to find places to shoot for season four, is now dead after his "bullet-riddled body" and auto were found in a remote area near the borders of the Hidalgo state of Mexico, according to reports.

Portal was reportedly heading out to obtain some production photographs.

Authorities are apparently struggling to rebuild the crime and find a suspect, let alone anyone who saw what happened. In July, 182 cases of homicide were reported in the densely populated state, a ratio of 12.2 for every 100,000 inhabitants. Variety reports that 182 people were killed there a year ago.

A spokesman for the Attorney General of the State of Mexico said there are now no witnesses. This has caused authorities to believe a persecution may have occurred.

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

Season four of "Narcos" is said to based on the rise of Mexico's infamous Juarez cartel. It remains to be seen if the production will move forward with Mexico locations for season 4.

Muñoz has various high-profile credits to his name, including scouting for films like Sicario, Bond film Spectre, Fast & Furious, Resident Evil: Extinction, and Mel Gibson's Apocalypto. We'll update you as we know more.
