(Newser) – A missing Boston graduate student has been found dead in the Charles River, bound with chains to a cement block. Jonathan Dailey, 23, was identified yesterday, a day after the body of a 62-year-old man was found in the river near the Boston University boathouse. The older man's death is not considered suspicious. Dailey's body was spotted by a Boston University rowing coach, reports the Boston Globe. The grad student at Boston Architectural College disappeared one week ago.

"It is far too early to make a determination as to manner of death, and reports indicating that the individual was the victim of a homicide are premature," says a spokesman for the Suffolk County district attorney. Detectives are also investigating the possibility of suicide. Dailey, originally from North Carolina, was taking a leave from course work for a semester. He was described by a pal as a "charismatic, great friend" who loved outdoor adventures.
