A location scout for Netflix's Narcos was found shot to death in Mexico on Monday while he was on the job.
Carlos Muñoz Portal, pictured above, was found in his car riddled with bullets in the Hidalgo state, according to Variety. Hidalgo has the highest murder rate in Mexico, with 182 murders committed in July alone.
Local journalists report that investigators are not clear what events led up to Portal's death.
Portal was scouting locations for season four of Narcos when he died.
He was a highly regarded member of the Netflix original series' production. In addition to Narcos, Portal worked with production company Redrum on Fast & Furious, Spectre, Resident Evil: Extinction and Sicario.
"We are aware of the passing of Carlos Muñoz Portal, a well-respected location scout, and send our condolences to his family," a Netflix representative said. "The facts surrounding his death are still unknown as authorities continue to investigate."
