A man whose body was found in a ditch Saturday has been identified as Joseph Hymes, 22, of West Ashley, Charleston County Deputy Coroner Dottie Lindsay said Sunday.

The coroner's office could not release any information on how or when Hymes died because of the ongoing investigation, Lindsay said.

The Charleston County Sheriff's Office is investigating the death as a homicide and did not have any new information to release Sunday, Capt. Jim Brady said.

A man riding a lawn mower discovered the body about 3:30 p.m. Saturday on Pine view Road near Wappoo Road in West Ashley.
