International news sources are reporting that remains located at the ship wreck of the Costa Concordia are of an Italian woman, an Italian prosecutor said.
"The human remains belong to Maria Grazia Trecarichi," prosecutor Francesco Verusio said.
Newspapers quote Trecarichi's widower Elio Vincenzi saying:
"I have learned from the press that the remains belong to my wife but have had no official confirmation. They assured me I would be the first to know, it didn't go that way."
Mr. Vincenzi had earlier identified shoes and a necklace found with the remains as belonging to his wife.
