LANCASTER, CA – The body of a man was found after he died a horrible death inside a stone pillar outside a California grocery store.

On Monday, police pulled over a man suspected of driving a stolen vehicle. The man fled on foot and the officers were unable to locate him.

That was until Saturday when his decomposing corpse was found inside a stone pillar outside the WinCo Foods grocery store.

Turns out that when the man ran from police he made his way inside the store and on to the store’s roof.

Access to the inside of the store’s stone pillars can be reached from there and the man either fell or climbed into one of the pillars.

On Saturday, a manager at the store smelled a foul odor coming from that pillar and thought it was a sewage issue.

The plumber that was hired to check it out called police after he knocked away some of the pillar’s stone and saw a man’s leg and tennis shoes.

“I’ve never seen anything like this before,” sheriff’s Lt. John Corina said. “Somebody tries to hide from the police and they can’t get out and end up dying in there. ”

If the man had any luck left at all, he fell and died instantly or, at the very least, suffocated rather quickly. Otherwise, he slowly cooked to death in that stone oven as the temperatures that week were over 100 degrees.
