...The body was in a state of decomposition and the person's gender is unknown at this time, according to Lt. John Corina with the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department.

WinCo needs to take a serious look at its real estate strategy and really think about if these are the types of locations they want to be operating in. I understand part of their strategy is to buy real estate, pay for it outright up front, and try to get a decent price for that real estate, but when that strategy pushes you into locations where things like this happen...

According to KTTV, it appears he got into the space through a roof hatch and got stuck, after eluding police:

Deputies were reportedly chasing the man last Monday, when a witness says he ran into the supermarket, sprinted up stairs into the offices, and then hid in a crawl space.

"He got out of the car, ran in, ran up the steps where the managers (are)," Oliver told the TV stations."And somehow he got on the roof. Last I heard he got away."

I wonder if this person once worked at that WinCo given the fact he found the stairs and crawl space. It just seems like an odd place to escape to.

Either that or he worked for the construction company that built the store.
