The state medical examiner has identified a body pulled from the Kuskokwim River near the village of Napakiak.

Alaska State Troopers say the dead man was 28-year-old Stacey Hoagland Jr. of Akiak.

Hoagland's boat capsized in September and he could not be found.

Boaters spotted the body June 19 and summoned troopers from Bethel.
