Homeless People Secretly Living In Your Attic

Have you ever had the feeling that you might have a ghost living in your house? And that it steals your clothes just to mess with you? Or maybe you have food in your pantry that seems to vanish. Well, it may actually be worse than ghosts. You could have a homeless person living in your attic.

To be honest, I don't know if that's worse than ghosts. But it sure is messed up.

Recently, I've done quite a bit of research on the topic. That means I did a google search for "secretly lives in attic." In my studies, I have found three actual cases where this happened. I was so amazed, I had to share. So here they are, in order from: "That's messed up" to "dude, shut the eff up, there's no way that happened, and if it did, it must have happened in Japan."

The Story of Miguel Lua


(Miguel Lua's "Attic-Home")

Our first story is a classic, "crazy-stalker-creepy boyfriend goes nuts on his girlfriend" type of case. Apparently, Miguel Lua is the jealous type, so he decided the best way to keep tabs on his ex-girlfriend would be to hide out in her attic for a few days. The article I read refers to her as Lua's "girlfriend," but they also mention that she had obtained restraining orders against him. So, I'm going out on a limb and at least giving her credit for breaking up with him. Here's the creepy highlights from the article:

"One of our deputies actually crawled up into the attic and found him in there hiding under some insulation and evidence appears he had been there some time, there were several burnt candles that were fresh, a Pendleton jacket, and some shoes, appeared he been staying up there on and off for who knows how long."

The girlfriend first thought something was out of place when she noticed her cell phone was missing.

MacKenzie says, "The scary part is he came down sometime during the night to steal her cell phone while it was charging to go through it to see if she had been calling any guys or new boyfriends."

Lua faces a stalking charge, violation of the restraining order, and burglary charge.

The Story of Stanley Carter



Meet Stanley Carter. In December of 2008, he had himself a Merry Little Christmas in the attic of the Ferrance family in Philadelphia. Stanley spent about a week in their attic. Below are the article highlights, followed by a video newscast that covers the whole event pretty well.

Homeowner Stacy Ferrance said: "When he came down from the attic, he was wearing my daughter's pants and my sweat shirt and sneakers. "From what I gather, he was helping himself to my home, eating my food and stealing my clothes."

"When we were going through the inventory of what he did take, we found a note labelled 'Stanley's Christmas List' of all the items he had removed from the residence and donated to himself," said Plains Township police Officer Michael Smith.

His attorney, public defender Basil Russin, said Carter, "He was very peaceful up there and kept to himself."

The Story of Tatsuko Horikawa

The most ridiculous story is unsurprisingly from Japan. What makes it amazing is that this 58-year old woman lived in another man's closet, unnoticed... FOR A YEAR! The homeowner got suspicious after food was disappearing from his kitchen. He then installed security cameras, and noticed images of someone going through his house while he was gone. Here are the highlights from the article:

“We searched the house ... checking everywhere someone could possibly hide,” Itakura said. “When we slid open the shelf closet, there she was, nervously curled up on her side."

The woman told police she had no place to live and first sneaked into the man’s house about a year ago when he left it unlocked.

Police suspect she might have been closet-hopping, moving from house to house.

She had moved a mattress into the small closet space and apparently even took showers, Itakura said, calling the woman "neat and clean."

Bonus Homeless Person Story!
I also came across this creepy video of a guy who claims to have caught a woman hiding in his closet. The only reason this isn't included in the above list is that some claim it is a hoax and I couldn't find any news articles verifying the story. Still an entertaining video:



Update: More Crazy People Living in Attics!
Just when you think there's no way this stuff still happens, it happens again.  Not to be outdone by the homeless, another crazy boyfriend has found his way back up into an ex's attic.  In Rock Hill, South Carolina, some crazy dude got out of jail and figured the best place to hole up for a few weeks would be his ex-girlfriend's attic.  He slept in the heating unit.  Here's the highlights:

She heard a thump coming from the ceiling after she put her children to bed Saturday night.

Officers did find several "Route 44" Sonic cups filled with feces and urine in the attic.

The man also appeared to have rigged the ceiling vents so he could see into the woman's bedroom.

The only entrance to the attic is inside the home, in the hall that connects her children's bedrooms. 

"Then all the nails just popped out of the ceiling over my bed. Like 'bing, bing, bing,'" said the woman.
And below is a videoclip from the local news.

This is wickedly creepy! I was watching a crappy sitcom a couple of weeks ago and they had a homeless person living in their attic...I thought it was outlandish! Who knew!

Arthur said...

I know, it's totally something you see in a movie and think, "That was creepy, but no way it happens in real life."

physicianswife said...

Yeah, I've heard of homeless people moving in when someone is away on vacation, but never actually living there at the same time as them!

Also, you won the giveaway, so email me the address you want the shirt mailed to. thephysicianswife@gmail.com

Arthur said...

Yay!!! Tytytytytytyty!

Janna said...

I should not have read this post or watched the videos. Luke warned me but I just had to see for myself. I'm pretty sure entire families could be living upstairs in our house and/or in the barns and we'd never know. **shudder**

Arthur said...

Haha, yeah your house/barns would be perfect for homeless-attic-life. That whole area would be perfect. You could just move from house to house since nobody locks their doors. You'd have to bring treats to feed all the dogs though, or they'd give away your cover.

MommyLisa said...

I had to come by and tell you thanks for making me a little more crazy! ha! I had to go in our attic the other day for something and I looked around a little longer than usual to make sure no one was sleeping in there! The really crazy part is that you have to walk through our loft, upstairs, to get in the attic because it's over the garage, so I can't imagine anyone actually getting in there but I did a double take, just in case! ha!

Arthur said...

Anonymous- I highly suggest you go to the police if you are seriously that concerned.

Alternatively, you should secretly install some type of security camera and record whatever rooms this keeps happening in. Then you can take hard evidence with you when you go to the police.

Hope this helps. Good luck to you, and please don't commit suicide. Just call one of these two toll-free numbers:

1-800-784-2433
1-800-273-8255

PS- I think your caps lock is on.

It was war.. so on a day of 102.3 I turned heater on full blast. They will use different ways to get in and out,, air unit theyc cut hole bigger to cliclimbin and out in the back.. on roof... In the front middle they actually rolled up sheeting and made trap door.. and then would use the entry area in garage attic crawl space.. the shinned lasers thru detached air ducts at my children. My youngest 7yrs old would even go to bathroom by himself... and still cops wouldnt help.. so we told them we would handle it.. along with numerous young adults are neighbor that shared attic was huge part,, lets just say husband caught him it wasnt pretty.. when cops came the couldnt do anything .. my husband beat him bad the moved out in a week.. but suprise people were still up there.,, right before we moved my husband and brother in law went up there found cable, and video wire above are bedrooms and bathrooms... and found a secret room.... when I get my wires to my computer I will post some pictures and video of creepy stuff... top it all off the new property mng.. locked all are stuff up in middle of move and stole everything we own and worked hard for, once again cops helped her but told my they coulnt help it was civil.. but made us leave,, and never complied to us getting are stuff and took itand moved peopeopln..

Hey Joni- Still here. Not sure how I can help though? Maybe just set up some surveillance cameras and see what you find. Good luck and call the cops if it gets too crazy.

I wrote a long while back, and somebody responded, if anybody else needs help please email me, at upupabovehelp@gmail.com. I will answer what I can. And help if possible. Ive been through it. And survived. It was a battle but I did it without the authorities.

I forgot, ive been through this twice at two different homes. First time in 2002, second was 2010. First time I thought I was crazy, so did my husband. So I left him. We reconnected. And eight years later this crap happened again. But husband saw . And boy apology over and over. But this time . I fought back. And won. And are local police did nothing. Absolutely nothing. We called them out at least six times , and had physical evidence. But still treated us like one flew over the coocoo's nest, so we said you wont help we will handle it our way and did. When my husband kicked dudes ass when he was caught police just stood around dumb founded. Once again, I have numbers to call, recommend trust worthy counsling, or some ideas, to whats going on or how to set them up for failure. Upupabovehelp@gmail.com
Oh yeh you can remain completely anonymous.

Also happened to me. Cops did nothing but accuse me of mental illness or drugs. Months ago actually found medicine bottle with a womans name, makeup, cloths, and a box with drug paraphinaella. Call cops, tell told me they could actually charge me with possession. Put game camera in house, pictures of 4 different people. Bout a month ago I found a bag of white rocks in top of my closet. Scared to call cops, went to sisters for help..since I had been claiming haunted house or crackheads in attic, she was quick to assume I was on drugs and bringing them to her was cry for help.so after I left she called cops, they came to house and arrested me. She also called cps, took my son. I've asked for drug test serveralntimes still havnt tested me. I have court next week, facing 2-5 years. Scared to stand my ground of innocence, no one believes me, as it stands I feel like I have to act like I'm guilty to get only 9 months rehab. I'll do whatever I can to get me son back faster. Still won't let me see him til I'm not in "denial" of drug use :(

Carol said...

Well, thank,God! Now, I know I was right the whole damn time! I have the same problem. I'm pretty sure I know who is living in my crawl space. I don't have an attic. I have a pitched roof. But, there's enough space between the insulation for a person to comfortably hang out up there. I suspect a guy I used to date as well. I have a restraining order against him. The cops won't do a damn thing! But, one thing I haven't done yet is ask the cops to bring the K-9 unit when they come. The dog would find him. Anyway, there are way too many people experiencing this trend and something needs to be done to stop it. It's just going to get worse, and the problem will spread.

There was a story about someone who found a secret door behind some shelves that lead to a space someone had been living in. Police assume someone living there before built the space and told someone who is using it now

Stop calling the cops. Call the fire dept. Or gas co. & tell them you smell smoke or gas in your attic, or call pest control & say you have a beehive or snake up there. At least SOMEONE will be able to get in & check it thoroughly. Just don't call from your own phone or from your house, because they may be tapping your phone calls. Simple solution to creepy-crawlies in your home: from an outside phone (not your own number), call Terminex or other pest control and schedule a whole house fumigation. Hire a pro to set up video cameras outside all around your home (do this after dark...late at night...so they can't see you) to catch the little buggers entering/exiting. Make sure you get CLEAR daytime & shade video plus CLEAR night vision infrared so you can easily identify them! Have Terminex tent and fumigate your whole house, with extra special emphasis in attics, basements, air ducts and behind walls. Find a nice motel to stay in for the duration. Your infestation should stop within a few days. If you smell anything putrid and start getting real flies and beetles after a week or two, call the fire dept.again and tell them you think there is a gas leak because there is a noxious smell. Maybe they will find the bugging body(ies).

Solution #2: Hire a private investigator to watch & video CLEAR day and night 24 hrs/day all around the outside of your place & check out if there are any shenanigans in your attic, hvac, walls or crawl spaces. Some have thermal vision heat sensing cameras that can see through walls. The cops use those now to look all the way through your house like an airport x-ray. The cops won't do anything unless you have factual evidence or get attacked first, and you have to have proof, not just suspicion. take a video inventory of EVERYTHING you own..down to the tiniest thing. Make a list on paper, too. Not on your computer because that can be hacked and changed. Count and record on paper every penny of your cash at the beginning and end of every day, and record if there is any discrepancy, down to the penny. Inventory your food and other consumable supplies before bed daily. Put chains and locks on your food cabinets and fridge. I would go so far as to drill holes in the cabinet doors to put my chains through, because knobs can be easily removed. Lock up your meds, money, checkbooks, credit cards, valuable jewelery, or any other valuables in a safe. Make it a daily habit. If it is a desperate situation, then get the guts to cut out your ceilings & all drywall & insulation, including the bathrooms and kitchen. Remove it ALL from the whole house. Gut them to the studs for walls & to roof rafters so the attic no longer exists & reveal any surprise spaces or peek holes (or cameras...yes it happens a lot) behind your walls. You may also need to remove carpet or floors to reveal crawl spaces below your rooms. VIDEO AND PHOTOGRAPH EVERY STEP OF YOUR DEMOLITION AND ALL EVIDENCE OF INTRUDERS!!! Permanently close any openings and open wall vents and install an electric vent. The industrial look is very popular, and you can get creative with pipes, hvac, and wiring if you have some money to do so. Your new Cathedral ceilings make your space look a lot larger, and you can hang retractable shelves or old doors hung flat/horizontal from the rafters for out of the way storage. Call a roofer to check for any openings in your roof or vents and repair them. If you are renting your space, try not to make so much noise during demo, and still photograph everything and keep accurate records of date and times you find evidence. If there is any, you can have your building superintendant/manager and your landlord arrested, or your creepy-ass guilty neighbor and charged with tresspassing, invasion of privacy and harrassment & sue the living shite out of them. Get legal advice first though.

No time to read your whole article... but as a lad in the UK, we used to get Paki's living in the attic. A couple would go up there from their council house, then breed. Soon you would have hundreds burrowing their way through the insulation like rodents with turbins. You'd hear them scampering around at night. It would give us the willies! They would meddle with the TV reception and burn josh sticks. Early morning, our street would be thick with the fog of incense from the night before. Our Mum had a right old time trying to get the 'Indian smell' out of our bed linnen. When you were asleep, they'd poke their dot heads out of the man hole in the ceiling and try steal your Dr Martens with bent coat hangers and what not. Once you had them up there, they were near impossible to get rid of- like having nits. The council did nout. The local bobbies turned a blind eye. Some said if they made attic arrests, the busses would stop running. I never have been able to stomach a curry.

Can anyone share what they have done to protect themselves and if they did any traps? Did anyone set up anything other than the obvious things like cameras? I am trying to come up with some different things to do for my Mom, who has intruders in her attic. They are also in my sisters house attic. My sister cant take it anymore as they are ruining her business. They are on her phone, computers etc. They have started to get really brave. Recently, vulgar messages have been sent to clients and it looks as if it is coming from her number.
My mom has limited electricity and now air conditioning. NO ONE WILL HELP and the COPS ARE USELESS. No point in calling. SO I HAVE TO FIND A WAY TO GET RID OF THEM!
I AM GOING TO GAS THEM! I have heard no one even mention this idea. If they want to be up in the attic so bad, fine. But how about they try to be able to breathe when gas fills the air and they are gasping for air! I bet they will be doing all they can do to get the F*** out so they can get air! When they do, I am going to have the place surrounded and they will be taken and tied up! On camera they are going to answer WHY THEY ARE HERE & WHO HAS HIRED THEM?? Since they are a intruder and broke in and posing a threat of lives, they have to know that this can get them killed!
I see NO OTHER OPTIONS! My Mom & Sister's lives are in jeopardy and should NOT HAVE TO LIVE LIKE THIS in fear day in and day out!

DOES ANYONE HAVE ANY OTHER SUGGESTIONS ON TRAPS OR ANYTHING ELSE THAT CAN BE USED TO GET RID OF THESE SICKOS?? If you do please email me at rirollins@outlook.com

And if you are suffering from this problem as well, email me and I can tell you things that may can help you also that I have done!

YOU ARE NOT CRAZY! THIS IS REALLY HAPPENNING AND YOU CANT GIVE UP!! FIGHT BACK! FIGHT BACK UNTIL YOU WIN! ITS YOUR HOME NOT THEIRS!!
If they wont leave and nothing you do makes them leave.... then .. they can get their wish and NEVER leave because they will die their!
LEAVE OR DIE is where I am with it!

You lock your shed. Why not lock the attic. Or do what I did and screw it shut. It might not work for that one person who cranked the heat up, but securing unattended property should deter most crime. You can screw a board over it, or even nail a wedge of wood lever that turns on the nail like a homemade latch. At least turn the rock music up for awhile and burn all your food. People who do this time take huge risks. What if you fumigated?

If you are renting from a live-in home owner or sublessor, you have less power but the are things you can do. To my sublessor, I extolled the virtues of screwing it shut. She didn't buy it, so I got on a ladder with a mirror and flashlight to check it out myself. The mirror help you see areas you otherwise wouldn't. Keep your cell on you, with its camera and voice recorder available. After that, one day when she wasn't home, I put a few thin applications of Elmer's glue over all four cracks between the attic door and the ceiling. That was enough to seal it for years. It was tight and even though the glue was virtually invisible, tampering was visible. I notice tampering in the form of buyer knife scrapes on ceiling popcorn. I asked her if she had been up there and she said the landlord had been. She also added, "Please don't glue it."
