Horry County police are investigating a body found in the area of Canal Street and 8th Avenue North on Sunday, June 10, according to a police report.

Myrtle Beach police were first on the scene, but the body was found in Horry County's jurisdiction.

The body was found laying in a "ditch-like" area, which was surrounded by a field and wooded area and was near a set of railroad tracks, according to the report.

The report says the body appeared to have been there for an extended period, as it was in an advanced state of decomposition.

This prevented the body from being identified, according to the report.

We've asked the Horry County Coroner if any further tests have been done to help identify the person.
