(Wouldn't really have fit the "body not preserved so as not to decay" answer, Cbsg.)

Was the building a museum when he worked there?
Was he killed by a person?
Is the body decayed to the point where no preservation is necessary (e.g. a skeleton)?

YES
Was the building a museum when he worked there?

Surprising! Hmm... someone who worked somewhere that was a museum even in pre-modern times, killed by someone somewhere else (but not because of his job), buried, found but not identified, brought back to the museum and put on exhibit because of how he was killed...

Was the killing a crime?
Is it pure happenstance that he's exhibited in the museum where he used to work (apart from it being a museum in the general area)?

Is the place primarily a museum (i.e. it is not a secondary function)?

Sorry, rephrased as yes/no question.
