Drowning victim in Chattahoochee River identified

COLUMBUS, GA (WXTX) –  A man who drowned in the Chattahoochee River two weeks ago has now been identified.

Muscogee County Coroner Bill Thrower says the drowning victim has now been identified as 48-year-old Todd Koller.

There was no phone number or permanent address for Koller, which made it difficult for the coroner to identify him and inform the family.

Witnesses say Koller was swept under the water near some rocks, making it the third drowning in the Chattahoochee in the last three months.
