The body of a man who may have been stealing copper wire was found wedged inside the walls of a business west of Highway 99, Fresno police said.
Police said a property manager went Sunday to an office complex in the 4300 block of North Golden State Boulevard, near Ashlan Avenue, and noticed copper wire had been stripped from the interior of one office.
The manager called police, and officers came with a dog that was drawn to an area of the attic, where officers saw a man’s leg. After wallboard was removed, the man’s body was discovered between the walls.
Detectives are pursuing the incident.
