The Orangeburg County Sheriff's Office is investigating a body found in a corn field near Holly Hill Tuesday.

Investigators say a person working along Farm Field Road Tuesday evening noticed an odor and found a shoe in a ditch. After sheriff's deputies were called to the scene, a body was found behind a nearby bush.

Investigators have not identified the body, nor have they released its gender.

"We are not ruling anything out," said Sheriff Leroy Ravenell of the investigation.
