Carlos Muñoz Portal, 37, was found dead in his auto, his body riddled with bullets, in Temascalapa, a violent region in central Mexico that lies 60km from Mexico City. That works out to a ratio of 12.2 for every 100,000 inhabitants.

A producer for the Netflix crime drama Narcos has been shot dead in central Mexico while looking for new locations.

Netflix issued a statement saying.

"We are aware of the passing of Carlos Muñoz Portal, a well-respected location scout, and send our condolences to his family", a spokesperson for Netflix said in a statement.
