LUMBERTON, N.C. — The body of a man found in a ditch in North Carolina has been identified as that of a Florida man.

Maj. Howard Branch says North Carolina Department of Transportation workers found the body Friday afternoon.

Branch says investigators don't think the body had been in the ditch long.

The death has been classified as a homicide. No arrests have been made.
