Myth about burying something living during the construction of a building in order to protect it

Setting: Present Day USA
Searched: Google, various variations of terms above

In the story there's a killer staging his murders after various myths.

I've heard about this one where something living is buried in the walls of a building in order to protect it, but the only reference I've come across in 'Der Schimmelreiter' by Theodor Storm, there, people try to throw a little dog into a dike because they think it'll withstand a flood.

Does anyone know any other reference?

Thank you!
