Carlos Munoz Portal, 37, a location scout for popular series Narcos, was murdered in his car with multiple gunshot wounds while scouting for location for Narcos season 4. Portal was found in a remote area in Mexico near San Bartolo Actopan, and this area has Mexico’s highest murder rate.
Pedro Pascal, the former Game of Thrones star and playing rogue cop of Narcos quoted to TMZ,” We can’t do it if it’s not safe, we are talking about lives.” Further the actor clarified saying,” If they want to do it, they will have to do it in a safe way”.
Robert De Jesus Escobar Gaviria, Pablo Escobar’s brother has urged Netflix to change the security protocol for the cast and crew after hearing about the scout’s death.
Reports supposedly suggest that the shooting is planning to move from Mexico to Columbia, where the previous seasons of Narcos were shot. Munoz was planning to explore the rise of Infamous Juarez cartel in Mexico for fourth season as in the end of third season the drug wars have shifted to Mexico.
