(ORANGEBURG, SC) â?? Orangeburg County Sheriff Leroy Ravenell said deputies are investigating the discovery of a body in a corn field in Holly Hill.

The individual followed the stench and located a shoe in a ditch. The person called law enforcement and upon arrival deputies located human remains behind a bush.

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