Authorities have discovered a body alongside the motorcycle of a Westchester day trader who disappeared in Mexico in January while traveling across Latin America, according to published reports.
The ominous find of 32-year-old Harry Devert's green Kawasaki bike next to the remains wrapped in a black plastic bag was made on a dirt road leading to La Majahua beach in the township of Union Isidoro Montes de Oca, Mexican officials said Friday.
The abandoned bike's vehicle-identification number matched that of Devert's, his mother, Ann Devert, told the Daily Mail on Friday. Ten packages of what appeared to be marijuana and cocaine were found near the motorcycle and body, according to a statement from the Guerrero office of public security.
Devert disappeared Jan. 25, while 44 days into a trans-Latin American motorcycle trip in which the former day trader planned to ride in Central and South America.

It could have been motorcycle found near body? WTF!
if i were to don the tinfoil...
sounds like he was a CIA operative that got killed while trying to organize 0bama’s ‘humanitarian border crisis’
I ride about 15k miles a year but I rarely ride alone. Not that this man would still be alive had someone been with him but could have increased his chances.
Even if by some miracle he made it all the way through Mexico, what are the odds he would have survived the rest of the trip?...
“Ten packages of what appeared to be marijuana and cocaine were found near the motorcycle and body”? That’s just bizarre.
If the guy was a drug-runner (and I’m not saying he was), you’d think whoever killed him would have taken the stuff.
If he wasn’t a drug-runner, then one questions why that stuff would be there, or even if it really was there (I’m not taking the word of something called the “office of public security” without a grain of salt).
My thoughts exactly!
That is weird. I doubt the guy was running drugs. He might have stumbled across something. And as a “sign”, the drug guys kill him and leave a bunch of drugs around as a warning. Also perhaps a show of “we are so powerful and rich - we can leave a bunch of drugs behind.”
yeah. same thoughts.
Well, I see two trash size plastic bags in the picture.
Neither look big enough to be holding an intact human...
My sister went to one of those famous beaches in Mexico for a vacation. She said it was strange to be out there with the cops/military and their M-16s on patrol. (No thanks!)
Same thing happened to Ambrose Bierce in 1913 when he joined Pancho Villa and wrote about the battles before disappearing. He was never found.
About 30 years ago, I’d just turned 21, we took a trip all the way down Mexico’s East Coast to Yucatan and back in a small RV, camping at the various camp sites along the way.
Except for the initial few miles in Matamoros, right across the border from Brownsville, it was a wonderful, almost idyllic trip.
Beautiful countryside, nice friendly helpful people.
I read that half a dozen journalists disappeared trying to get the scoop on the Khmer Rouge; they expected the Hanoi Jane treatment, and truly underestimated the evil of much more serious communists than the Viet Cong.
I hope he had his helmet on.
Sorry to say this about a dead man, but...
That’s the face of a beaming idiot.
If he had even a tiny clue about what Central and South America are really like, he would have never set foot across the Mexican border. Or tires.
A friend of mine moved to Mexico. She wanted me to come down and told me one day “It’s really safe, there are guards every where”.
Sorry but I am not convinced.
I read a science fiction story about this years ago. He goes to Mexico, falls in with some natives, gets cured of his ills, gets fat, gets killed and eaten by his hosts.
