A body has been found in an abandoned home in Summerville.

The Dorchester County Coroner says at 3:07 p.m. Thursday, a man who was taking pictures of abandoned houses on Parsons Road in Summerville called dispatch, saying he found a dead body.

The Coroner says it appears the body has been there a long time, and that the skeleton is partially mummified.  He says it appears the body was fully clothed, and that judging by the clothing the body is male, but that won't be confirmed until an anthropologist reviews the remains Friday.

The Dorchester County Sheriff's Office is investigating.
