GULFPORT, MS (WLOX) -

Harrison County Coroner Gary Hargrove has identified the man whose body was found in a Gulfport ditch as 29-year-old Tad Swan.

Workers found the body in a ditch near a construction site on Three Rivers Road on Aug. 21. Hargrove said family members last heard from Swan on Aug. 10.

Hargrove said doctors at the state crime lab determined Swan had been dead for several days before his body was found.

Hargrove said pathologists found no signs of foul play, but he cannot yet say how Swan died. A final report, including toxicology analysis, is still being finished.
