Prove Your Innocence

The store room of your house is locked with a certain lock that can be closed without a key but requires a key to open which you own (there is no duplicate key). You decide to move your old stuff in the storeroom. After keeping the things carefully, you lock it back again perfectly. The next day, a dead body is found in your closed store room. Since only you have the key to the store room and you live alone, the police suspects you as a murderer. You can’t understand anything when suddenly a thought strikes your mind. There is a possible way using which the dead body could have been placed by someone else.

Can you find that way so you can tell the police and prove yourself to be innocent?

    While I was keeping the old stuff in the room, the murderer must have carefully replaced the original lock with another one whose key he owns (of course, the other lock looks like the original one and also follows the same locking mechanism i.e closes without the key but opens with a key). So, while locking back, I  closed the lock without knowing that the original lock has been replaced. Once the murderer puts the dead body inside the store room later, he puts back the original lock and closes it. Hence, it seems as if I have put the dead body inside.
