Location Scout for “Narcos” Murdered in Central Mexico

MEXICO CITY – Investigators are trying to determine who murdered Carlos Muñoz Portal, a location scout working for the Netflix series “Narcos,” in the central Mexican city of Temascalapa, officials said Monday.

“This sad incident is already being investigated by the state Attorney General’s Office,” Mexico state Gov. Alfredo del Mazo told Radio Formula.

Mexico state surrounds the Federal District and forms part of the Mexico City metropolitan area.

Muñoz Portal was killed when he went to Temascalapa to look at “some locations for the series that Netflix was producing,” Del Mazo said.

The bullet-riddled body of the 37-year-old Muñoz Portal, who had worked in the film industry for more than a decade, was found early last week in San Bartolome Actopan, a community outside Temascalapa.

Muñoz Portal was working on finding locations for the fourth season of “Narcos,” which will deal with the Juarez drug cartel.

Mexico state is the country’s most populous state and also one of its most dangerous.

Del Mazo, an Institutional Revolutionary Party (PRI) member who took office last Friday, told Radio Formula that his administration would fight violence and corruption.

The goal is to “give back to Mexico state’s residents the ability to live in peace in their homes, and to walk our streets feeling safe,” the governor said.
