The Hamilton County Coroner's office has identified the two bodies pulled from the Ohio River last week. 

On Wednesday, search and rescue crews pulled a body that was spotted near a boat dock at Fernbank Park. 

Officials identified the body as 36-year-old Jacob Gregory of Covington, according to the coroner's report. 

Gregory was likely floating in the river for 24 to 36 hours, Assistant Chief Michael John said. Police said they have no idea where the man could have entered the water. 

On Thursday, emergency crews recovered a body that was seen flowing near the Anderson Ferry along River Road and Hillside Avenue.

The coroner's office identified  as Christopher Kuchera.  No age or address was given.

Their deaths are not connected. 

Officials have not ruled on either death.
