I highly doubt that the died were buried within the walls. It would compromise the structural integrity of the wall making it easier to collapse due to the harsh conditions. As a dead body erodes it creates gaps. The gaps within the walls eventually collapse under the weight of the stones/mud etc. Not to mention the amount of people who died during its construction.

The Wall was built by piling up bricks or stones along the mountain contours. But it is not simply a wall. Instead, it is a military barrier composed of walls, passes, beacon towers, garrisons and watchtowers.
