"We saw a lot of police activity. There was a construction site. They were like demo-ing everything out of this building and all of a sudden just stopped. The next day we saw the coroner come. A lot of police activity. It surprised me that much. There's a lot of homeless activity here, so it was an abandoned building, so figured probably something like that happened," said an unidentified man who was working in the area when the body was discovered."
