California lawmakers responded to a call from construction workers who were renovating the Henry J. Kaiser Convention Center when they discovered the decomposing body.

Upon arrival, authorities determined that the conditions in the wall of the building preserved and mummified the remains.

Local deputies have launched an investigation and plan to get fingerprints of the remains in an attempt to determine who the person is and how long the body has been behind the wall.

Authorities believe the body had been there for several years before it was discovered.

“Any theory is possible,” said Ray Kelly of the Alameda County Sheriff’s Office told NBC News.

“It could be anything from someone who came in behind the wall and hit and died in prison, to someone who put the person there.

“Only God knows.”

The convention center is owned by the City of Oakland who closed the facility in 2005 due to operating costs.

In 2015, the city entered into an agreement with a development group Orton Development, Inc. to renovate the dilapidated center.

The development group proposed the revitalized space as performing arts and commercial space

In recent news, a plumber discovered 3,000 cash-filled envelopes behind a bathroom wall in Joel Osteen’s megachurch in Texas.

The bizarre find, made Nov. 10 at Osteen’s Lakewood Church in Houston, was told anonymously by the plumber to 100.3 The Bull, a morning radio program in the city.

It is unclear how much money was in the envelopes.
