A body pulled out of the Hudson River on Saturday has been identified as that of Vincent Viafore, the New York Times reports. Prosecutors allege that Viafore, who drowned after his kayak capsized on April 19, was killed by his fiancée Angelika Graswald.
The body, which was discovered north of the United States Military Academy at West Point—not far from where the couple launched their kayaks—has been transferred to the Orange County morgue for an autopsy. According to the Times, police say forensic evidence from the body will be crucial in their investigation.
Graswald was arrested on April 29 and charged with second-degree murder.
At a bail hearing earlier this month, investigators claimed that Graswald—the beneficiary of two life insurance policies worth $250,000 that Viafore had taken out—had admitting to tampering with her fiancé’s kayak and that she had said it “felt good knowing he was going to die.”
Graswald’s attorney has said his client’s statements were coerced.
