Authorities continue to investigate bodies pulled from river

Indiana State Troopers and Daviess County Sheriff Deputies are continuing to investigate two bodies recently pulled from the Ohio River. 
Indiana State Troopers are investigating the death of one of the bodies, 30-year-old Sarah Ipock who was from the Louisville area. Troopers say they have received little information and are hoping for new leads.

In Daviess County, deputies are still trying to identify a man pulled from the river. Deputies say they weren't able to get finger prints off the badly decomposed body. DNA samples have been sent to a forensics lab at North Texas University and the body will be sent to the University of Tennessee where a composite will be done on the face and skull.  "Hopefully within the next two or three weeks that will be done and we'll have a picture or better profile of the person that we have," said Captain Bill Thompson, Daviess County Sheriff's Office.

Investigators believe Ipock's death may be connected to a man's body. The man was found shot in the head with ligature marks on his neck..
