The title of this post is somewhat of a misnomer because the South Carolina woman who discovered her ex-boyfriend had been living in her attic had already broken up with him 12 years ago. So maybe it would be more accurate to have titled it “You’re Getting Evicted From My Crawlspace”?
Twelve years ago, a single mother of five named Tracy in Rock Hill, South Carolina, dumped her ex-boyfriend. He headed off to prison, where he wrote her letters, and she ignored them. Two weeks ago, he was released from the pokey and broke into her house, where he was hiding not-very-surreptiously in the attic ever since. Tracy heard thumps from upstairs and saw nails popping out of the ceiling — so she followed her gut instinct and sent her adult sons and nephew up there to investigate.
What they found was disgusting: her ex-boyfriend sleeping in a heating unit and several Sonic cups lying around filled with pee and poop. And most horrifying of all (although the cups of poop are pretty horrifying), the clod-footed miscreant had rigged the ceiling vents so he could spy on Tracy while she slept in her bedroom. EW.
Somehow this gem of a human being managed to flee his attic lair upon being discovered and he is still at large.
So rest assured, ladies! If you hear a loud thump in your attic, it isn’t Beau the deformed baby-monster-creature from “American Horror Story.” It’s just your dirtbag ex from 2000.
