GREENVILLE — Investigators are looking into the discovery of a man's body found lying in front of a Greenville church.

Greenville County Deputy Coroner Mike Ellis said the body of Billy Joe Jamison, 50, was found Monday in front of Long Branch Baptist Church.

Ellis said Jamison likely died between midnight and 2 a.m.

The Coroner's Office said the cause of death was multiple blunt force injuries. But investigators are still trying to determine the manner of death — in other words, how Jamison came to be injured. Investigators, including Greenville police, are treating the death as suspicious.
