Ex-Boyfriend Living in Attic Freaks Out North Carolina Woman

by at . Comments

When the nails started falling out of her bedroom ceiling one night, Tracy, a Rock Hill, N.C., mother of five, thought it might be an animal up in the attic.

She thought wrong. It was her ex-boyfriend.

After her older son went up to investigate, the dude came down from the attic without any explanation and left with a smile before police could arrive.

According to the Charlotte Observer, the man had been living in the attic by the heating unit for about two weeks, having just been released from jail.

"He had packed all the old coats and jackets into the heating unit and was sleeping in the heating unit," said Tracy, who did not reveal her last name.

There were also large plastic cups containing human waste. Tracy's nephew told the Observer that he could spy on the woman through an air vent.

"It's got me flabbergasted," she told the newspaper after discovering the unwanted guest. "How can you look at someone through an air vent?"

A fair question. Another mystery is how the man got in the attic in the first place because the only access is through the lower level of the house.

She and the man dated over a decade ago, but they remained in touch; he helped her install some doors in 2011, the last time she saw him.

"I want him to be charged with it," she told the Observer. "It could be somebody else he does the same thing to, but she might not be so lucky."

That's right, Matt! I've lived all over the US, including Hawaii and Washington DC, and I think NC is great. Our police officers are not idiots, as Scott accused them to be. NC is a beautiful state. I admit Hawaii was better, but idk if I would want to live there now. Leatherwood mountain is my favorite place in NC. Google it!


Rock Hill is in SC, not NC.


N.C. Cops are idiots, how many times will they let him get away? State police sound like a good idea yet, or would that mess up all the corruption?
