Living alone or with your family in your house should give you the feeling that you’re safe and protected. The house is where we feel comfortable, it’s our private space where we take refuge and live in peace. But what would you do if you discovered that you or your family are not the only people that live in that house?
We found three creepy stories that made our skin crawl, just thinking what these people went through! Thankfully, nobody got hurt…
20. SOUTH CAROLINA
A woman from South Carolina who didn’t want to divulge her real name – so let’s call her ‘Tracy’, stated in an interview with the media that she has heard strange noises in her house. She is a single mom of five. What was with the noises?
19. YOU’RE GETTING OLD
Tracy told her kids she has heard the noises, but they just thought she was hearing things! She said in an interview with ABC News: “The kids were saying, ‘You’re getting old. You’re hearing things. You’re crazy.’”
She couldn’t shake that feeling that something was off…
18. KEPT HEARING NOISES
“I kept hearing a bumpin’, thumpin’ noise,” she said. And one night as she was on her laptop and everything was silent in the house, she heard a noise right above her bedroom ceiling. Looking closely, she saw nails that popped out of the ceiling!
17. MORE NOISES FROM THE ATTIC
She dismissed the nails from the ceiling, thinking about what her kids told her and went to sleep. Then, at 2:30 AM she woke up after she heard more banging. Frightened, the woman called her nephew to see what was in the attic as she was too scared to do it herself…
16. “THE SOUNDS OF MY HOME”
“It was either something or somebody was in the attic. I know the sounds of my home,” added Tracy. The nephew reached the attic and started climbing the stairs. He turned on the light in there, but at the end of the attic, there was no light. Tracy’s nephew was stunned!
15. THE MAN IN THE ATTIC
The nephew was stunned to see a man standing there. The family immediately phoned the authorities, but the man smiled and walked off before police got there. You won’t believe who that man was and what he was doing there!
14. SLEEPING IN THE HEATING UNIT
“He had packed all the old coats and jackets into the heating unit was sleeping in the heating unit,” said Tracy. She even recognized the man – it was someone she dated 12 years ago! And what was more disturbing was that from that spot, he could watch the woman in her bedroom through an air vent crack!
13. HOW CAN YOU DO THAT?
Tracy said that the whole experience has been marking:
“It’s got me flabbergasted. How can you look at someone through an air vent?” She found in the attic cups of urine and feces. And they have no idea how the man got into the house, said the woman…
12. “I FEEL VIOLATED”
“We are still figuring out how he got in the house. I want him charged. I feel violated,” added Tracy. Her story is really creepy, and she is not the only woman to discover she had a stranger living with her for more than two weeks…
11. LIVING WITH A STRANGER
Amber Dawn moved into an apartment and had no idea that she has been living with a stranger in the house. And that wasn’t just for a few days – but half a year! She started hearing footsteps.
The place she moved into was close to her family…
10. A MOUNTAIN TOWN IN WASHINGTON
“In my twentieth year, I moved to a quiet mountain town in Washington to be close to my brother and his family. I rented a one-bedroom apartment down the street from his house,” recalls Amber. All that time, someone was watching her from the attic!
9. THE ROOM GOT FLOODED
She left her new puppy in the bathroom and went to work. Someone called Amber to tell her the room was flooded and she thought about the puppy. But she got home and found the puppy safe and sound, not on the floor!
8. A MAN WAS LIVING IN HER CRAWL SPACE
“There’s no way she could have gotten into the sink. She was a little puppy; the toilet was far enough away from the sink that she wouldn’t have been able to climb,” explained Amber in an interview.
Then, she would find out that she wasn’t alone…
7. FOOD, A BOOK, AND A SLEEPING BAG
Amber said she “discovered a man living in my crawl space.” She called the police, and they found a book, food, and a sleeping bag, but no man. Probably he heard something was off. How did he get into her house?
“I left a window open for my cats so he could’ve gone in and out that way. I had a spare key, he could have taken my spare key and made a copy.”
6. LOCK THE ATTIC DOOR
After this experience, Amber moved out and made her landlord lock the attic door, just to be safe:
“Not that I want to make every body paranoid, but listen to your instincts. Deep down I knew what was going on but I didn’t trust myself, I thought I was just imagining it,” added Amber, concluding that she will always listen to her instincts.
5. NEW YORK CREEPY CUPBOARD
Actor Joe Cummings lives in Manhattan, New York with his girlfriend. One day, after food kept mysteriously missing, he confronted his girlfriend, but she denied it. Both very confused about the missing food, Joe figured he would place a hidden camera and find out…
4. HIDDEN CAMERA
The truth would be very creepy! After placing the hidden camera, there is sudden movement from the top right corner. Things move, and a woman appears from a cupboard, gets down on the table and slowly pulls a stool to get to the floor!
3. THE SINK
The woman approaches the sink and urinates in it. Then, she opens the fridge and starts eating and drinking her fill. Believe it or not, but she even has time to watch the TV before Joe wakes up to drink some milk from the fridge – she hides and then waits for him to go back to sleep…
2. CALL THE POLICE!
The next morning he woke up, saw the footage and immediately ran away from his house and called the police. The woman was caught and arrested, and the police found out that she has been living in that cupboard for more than two weeks.
1. A ROBBERY
“I have no idea how she got in there. The only way in is through the window as I am on the top floor and there is a fire escape,” wrote Joe on his YouTube channel where he posted the video. He said that the police believes the woman got inside to rob him but decided that the crawl space was a good enough home!
