HONEA PATH, SC (WSPA) – The Anderson County Sheriff’s Office says a body was found in the woods off of Cleveland Road near Honea Path, Thursday afternoon.

The coroner later identified the man as Steven Dale Watkins, 45, who went missing in early September when Irma first hit the Upstate.

Deputies say the body was found shortly before 3:00pm by a property owner who was walking in his back woods.

The Sheriff’s Office said the body was found in various stages of decomposition.

The coroner told media outlets Thursday evening that no foul play was involved.
