Searchers have pulled a second body from the Hudson River, which police believe to be that of Mark Lennon, 30, who has been missing since he was thrown from a boat after it crashed on Friday, ABC News reports. The first body found in the water yesterday is believed to be 30-year-old Lindsey Stewart, a bride-to-be who was riding with her fiance, Lennon, and three other friends. Lennon was to be the best man in their wedding, which was set to take place in a couple of weeks. Another friend, Jojo John, who was operating the boat, has been charged with vehicular manslaughter and three counts of vehicular assault. Cops say they have "probable cause" to believe John was driving the boat drunk. (More Mark Lennon stories.)
