After a Minneapolis Facebook group posted a photo of a mummified monkey discovered inside a historic building, Minnesota sleuths scrambled to figure out how it ended up there. So far, the leading theories involve an exotic pet store and a mayor’s father who stole a monkey, but let it loose after it defecated all over a friend’s bedroom.

The preserved primate was discovered by demolition worker Adam Peterson while he was working on renovations of the century-old Dayton’s building. He shared a photo of the find with the Old Minneapolis Facebook page.
