Body Found In Creek Identified

Authorities have identified a body found in the Stony Creek in Nash County on Wednesday.

The Nash County Sheriff’s Office released a statement Friday afternoon saying they had identified the man as 45 year-old David Patrick Crawford of Waxhaw, NC in Union County.

On Wednesday, a boring company was conducting work near US 64 in Nashville and discovered Crawford’s body.

Chief Deputy Brandon Medina said there is no evidence of any foul play.  Crawford had recently been working and temporarily residing in the Rocky Mount area.

An autopsy to determine the cause of death has been delayed because of the recent inclement weather.
