CNN — Human remains found in two plastic bags near a beach in southwestern Mexico have been identified as those of Harry Devert, a New Yorker who left his job as a trader in finance for a transcontinental motorcycle journey from the United States to Latin America, Mexican authorities said.Devert, 32, vanished six months ago after sending his girlfriend an ominous text message from a troubled region in Mexico, describing how he was being escorted from “an area too dangerous for me to be.”Mexican authorities, acting on tips, last week located his green Kawasaki motorcycle in a shallow grave in the state of Guerrero, along with the badly decomposed remains of a man in two bags.On Thursday, DNA tests confirmed the remains were those of Devert, a representative of the Guerrero state attorney general’s office not authorized to speak to the media told CNN.The investigation was turned over to federal prosecutor because of the nature of the crime and the fact that it involved an American tourist, he said.
