WASILLA - Alaska State Troopers have released the name of a man whose body was found near the mouth of the Susitna River.

The body of 51-year-old Scott Aslakson of Houston was found Sunday, weeks after he broke through the ice on his snowmobile in March near the Deshka Landing.

Searchers were unable to find him at the time.

Troopers say the state medical examiner's office identified Aslakson through dental records.
