A body was found in a cornfield in Holly Hill Tuesday morning.

A person walking along Farm Field Road smelled the decay about 8:30 a.m. Tuesday and found a shoe in a ditch, Orangeburg County Sheriff Leroy Ravenell said. Deputies were called in and found human remains behind a bush, he said.

"At this point, we have not been able to positively identify the individual, so we are not ruling anything out," Ravenell said Wednesday.

Holly Hill is in Orangeburg County. It's north of St. George, which is in Dorchester County.
