The Dorchester County Coroner identifed the body found in Bulow Landing last week as Abner Lopez, 28, of North Charleston.
His death has been ruled a homicide, although no cause of death was initially listed on the coroner’s report.
Lopez was discovered the morning of Aug. 13 by a survey team. In the 911 call, the surveyer said the body appeared to be tied down.
Both Charleston County and Dorchester County deputies responded, as the landing is right at the county line.
