A man's body was found in a ditch in Streetsboro Thursday evening. On Friday, police said it is David Bowles, 20, of Mantua.

Police also said a final cause of death "will not be identified until toxicology results are obtained from the Cuyahoga County Coroners Office which may take days or weeks."  

According to Streetsboro police, a man's body was found face down in a small ditch on Invernest Street around 6 p.m. Police estimate he had been there 18 to 24 hours. 

A resident of the street discovered his body and called 911. Police say it appears to be an accidental death, and do not suspect foul play.
