Rebecca Wells, 51, was found slumped over her desk in the county Department of Internal Services in Downey by a security guard.
The exact time of death is not clear, but detectives say that, at worst, Wells had been dead for a day before her body was discovered.
Wells, a USC graduate, was a longtime compliance auditor, and had recently become a grandmother, according to co-workers.
Investigators have not determined the official cause of death, but they say foul play is not suspected.
