PELHAM - DNA testing is now underway after human remains were found near the motorcycle belonging to missing Pelham man Harry Devert.

Last week, Mexican authorities found his motorcycle next to a dismembered body in two garbage bags. The body was so decomposed that it was unrecognizable.

Devert was last seen in January traveling through a dangerous part of Mexico on his way to the World Cup.

Officials have revealed that drugs may have been found next to the shallow grave, increasing the possibility that a cartel killed him.

Harry Devert's mother, who's from Pelham, is flying down to Mexico to help identify the body.
