Italian authorities have identified the five bodies recovered in the last three weeks from an Italian ship that ran aground off the Tuscan coast in January.

Two of the bodies were identified as Barbara and Gerald Heil, a couple from Minnesota with roots in the Chicago area. Their son lives in Mount Prospect.

The others identified were two German citizens and an Italian crew member. Two people are still missing from the January wreck.

The Costa Concordia struck rocks and capsized on Jan. 13. A crew member from the cruise ship filed a lawsuit in Chicago federal court against Carnival Cruise Lines and its Costa subsidiary.
