WALTERBORO, S.C. (AP) - Authorities say a body discovered in a wooded area in Colleton County is that of a teen who had been shot to death.

Coroner Richard Harvey tells local media outlets he’s identified the body as belonging to 19-year-old Prince Polite of Johns Island.

Polite’s body was found Wednesday by members of a logging crew near a metal gate about two miles (3.22 kilometers) from the Beaufort County line. Authorities say the body had been placed there after the original crime happened elsewhere.

No other details about the death have been released. The State Law Enforcement Division is handling the investigation.
