The body of Boston Architectural College graduate student Jonathan Dailey was found in Boston's Charles River this morning, reportedly bound with chains and weighted with a cinder block.

The body, the second found in the river in as many days, was discovered at 7:25 a.m. today by a Boston University rowing coach. The Suffolk District Attorney's Office identified it this afternoon as Dailey, 23, The Associated Press reported.

The body was discovered less than two miles from where Dailey went missing nearly a week ago.

Authorities would not describe the condition of the corpse, but the Boston Globe, citing unnamed law enforcement officials, reported earlier today that the body was found chained to a cinder block.

"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," said Jake Wark, spokesman for the Suffolk County District Attorney.

On Sunday, police found the body of a 62-year-old man near the Boston University Boathouse. That man's identity has yet to released, pending notification of his next of kin.

Daily is a student at Boston Architectural College and worked as a salesman at an American Apparel clothing store. He was known for taking adventurous trips, but friends and family say he would have informed them if he were going away.
