Authorities say a body found in a field near Interstate 85 in Spartanburg has been identified as a Greensboro, North Carolina, man.

Investigators say fingerprints helped them determine the body found Tuesday was 35-year-old Marcial Antonio Perez.

Spartanburg County deputies think Perez was in this county illegally and may have been operating a courier service.

An autopsy found Perez died from being beaten in the head.

A mother and daughter looking for scrap metal found Perez's body.

Deputies say they have no suspects.
