Authorities say a 20-year-old man was found dead in a drainage pipe, days after his wrecked car was found nearby.
Multiple media outlets reported Thursday that investigators are trying to determine how Patricio Fransisco-Franco of Chesnee ended up in the culvert, several hundred feet from his car.
Coroner Rusty Clevenger says Fransisco-Franco was found late Tuesday and identified from fingerprints. He says brush around the culvert may have hampered finding his body. An autopsy is planned.
The Highway Patrol says Fransisco-Franco's car went off the road on a curve about 4 a.m. Saturday, hit a mailbox and fence and overturned.
