Man's body found on I-26 yet to be identified

Investigators say the body of a man that was found in a median earlier this month on I-26 has yet to be identified.

The Dorchester County Coroner's Offices says authorities are still waiting on test results to try and identify a body that was found near mile marker 178 on Dec. 1.

The body was discovered by workers mowing grass along Interstate 26 in Dorchester County.  The coroner's office said the official cause of death is skull fractures due to being struck by the vehicle.

Authorities say the work crew discovered a body in the high grass in the median just before the 178 mile marker around 11:45 a.m. The crime scene was located near the Harleyville / Holly Hill exit.

Authorities say the victim apparently was dropped off not far from that location on Nov. 13, which means the body could have been there for almost a month.
