ROME - The remains of American and German couples who died when the Costa Concordia capsized near a Tuscan island have been identified, several weeks after the bodies were found in the wreck of the cruise ship, Italian authorities said Tuesday.

The Prefect’s office from the Tuscan town of Grosseto, where the bodies were taken, also announced the identification of a fifth body, that of an Italian crewman from aboard the Italian luxury liner, which struck a reef off the island of Giglio on Jan. 13. Thirty-two people died, including two people whose bodies still have not been found.

The two US victims - the only Americans who died in the accident - were identified as Barbara and Gerald Heil of White Bear Lake, Minn. Also identified were Christina Mathi Ganz and Norbert Josef Ganz and Giuseppe Girolamo, the crew member.
