The murderer of an American, Harry Devert of Pelham, New York, heading to the 2014 World Cup in Brazil, may have been arrested by Mexican authorities.
Mexico’s Federales have announced the arrest of Adrian Reyes Cadena, the suspected leader drug gang in along the Pacific Coast region of that country.
Devert was a 33-year-old stock trader from Pelham, New York. His decomposed remains were found along with his motorcycle months later about 16 miles (27 kilometers) from Zihuatanejo. The remains were identified through genetic testing. Authorities also said they recovered a bag nearby containing 10 packets of what appeared to be marijuana and cocaine.
Reyes Cadena allegedly led the “Guerrero Guard” gang and was known by the alias “El Tigre.” He also is alleged to have overseen the kidnapping and disappearance of two federal police officers in 2013 and the kidnapping of an Italian businessman in 2014.
Cadena is linked to the Knight’s Templar drug cartel of Michoacan.
