(WOLO) SUMMERVILLE,S.C.,

Authorities say a man taking pictures of an abandoned house in Summerville found the body of a man who has likely been dead for at least five years.

Dorchester County Coroner Chris Nisbet said the skeletal remains still wearing clothes were found Thursday. He says investigators don't know if the man died in the home or the body was placed there.

The coroner says the man's identity and a cause of death also have not been determined and Dorchester County deputies are investigating.

Authorities say the man who found the body takes pictures of abandoned houses as a hobby.
