TRENTON, S.C. (WRDW) -- The body that was found in Trenton, S.C., over the weekend has been identified.

The body of 63-year-old Earl Busbee was found near the Dollar General in Trenton.

Deputy Coroner David Burnett says there is no sign of foul play and that the death appears to stem from natural causes.

Burnett says it was normal for no one to see Busbee for long periods of time. He was known not to keep close contact with anyone and was known to wander around the county.

Family members say they last saw him at Christmas and others saw him in early January, which matches with the time frame for the decomposition.
