This happened in my hometown a few years back but can`t find it on google anywhere. Dude was living with some family that decided they didn`t want him there anymore so they kicked him out, but he came back while they were away and spliced the cable so he could watch tv in the attic. He had a nice little room from the pics they took at the time. He also drilled tiny holes in the ceiling beneath the attic so he could see what people were doing. One night the family had a party and they heard noises so somebody went to check the attic and found everything, but the dude living in there opened the attic window and got out in time. Don`t think they ever caught him. He had also left a death threat note in their kitchen while he was in the attic.

I would have thought that she would have found another place to live in a year. Did she ever leave the house - that`s a long time to be inside for

I believe Japanese closets generally have two or three sets of sliding doors that are stacked on top of each other along the same wall. The top set of doors might open to a separate area that is 2 or 3 feet high and will might actually be rather deep. Often spare futons are kept up there so this hobo-ninja would have had a soft place to lay down. The middle set of doors (a separate compartment from the top) generally will have a rod for hanging clothing and will might be 4 or 5 feet high. The bottom compartment will then be about 2 feet high with separate doors and might hold other stuff.

Obviously a government conspiracy.
They put hobos in peoples closets 24/7.
Hell, I found a guy eating canned beans in mine like... 10 minutes ago.

ok. no matter where this closet was or how big it was, keeping hidden in a closet for a year is almost impossible to do. i say the cia or something should recruit her as a secret agent.

--------------------------------------------------

Lol, seriosly. She would do well. Hiding in places that no one elsoe would fit. :-)

Well, at least in jail, she has food and a place to stay....
But still, a year and not being detected? Skills!
Either that, or she was his sex slave and just got tired of her and framed her. :-P

if it was a japanese style room it must have been a japanese style closet. that means its probably not the kind of closet most of you are picturing win you say things like "that must be a big closet!!!" i dont want to go back and read again to get exactly right "how could he not notice, his closet must be 5 feet from his bed" my house has 4 closets that arnt in bedrooms. i make no claim to being an expert but i think its fairly common for any japanese room to have a japanese closet.

the anime i was reminded was either Inukami dears or chobits... might be all 3 im reminded of or 1 or 2 out of the three. to many similarities for me to remember what happend in what one.

Yeah, I was reminded hardcore of The Grudge. Creepy little ghost/poltergeist creatures living in my closet compartment? No thanks.

I agree with everyone who has said, "How would you not notice that? It`s like a 6th sense, to know when someone is near you." and whatnot.

It`s disturbing that she managed to live up there that long undetected, but very impressive.

The title is horrifying enough... my father used to convince my sister and I that an Ax murderer lived in the crawl-space in our closet and if we stayed up too late he`d kill us. Somehow, this got twisted into "if the lights are off he`ll kill us while we sleep" which led to neither of us being able to sleep without the closet light on. Black-outs were terrifying.

As far as the actual article goes, she`s a pretty brave lady, and talented. Takes some skill to go unnoticed for a whole year. She shouldn`t have been taking so much food though. She could have gone longer, found a job, and bought her own food and then live undetected for years.

She was "neat and clean"

LOL!!! What would she do in the middle of the night when she had pee? And what about when he opened up the closet doors, he couldn`t hear anybody breathing??? She must of been freakishly skinny if she was able to climb on top of a shelf, and stay there for so long!! loll

I have sort of a Spidey-Sense when someone is near me. How BLUNT can you be if there is a woman living in your home for a year in your closet, which is most likely a few feet from your bed. Does he use his?
Anyhow, I would let her stay. Give her the other room in the house. BUT, she had to be skinny, and possibly at least `okay` looking. I won`t live with some fat ugly woman. That`s JAPANESE. That`s like, impossible anyway.

Although, his closets were a very important place to look if he conducted his bi-annual check for hobos living in his house. Another good one is in the oven....real men BBQ and microwave everything.

Screw the homeless! Stop begging for my change that I need for the meter and for the bubblegum machine. Sometimes I like to buy those neat prizes in the clear plastic bubbles. Oh, and take a shower you dirty homeless. Ya stink. Yet they are very thrifty to use the sports section of the newspaper as underwear.

Oh and the `hot japanese models` statement is obviously redundant. That`s like saying ATM machine or PIN number or stupid Canadians. Sorry.

Ninjas maybe stealthy and sneaky, but they keep messy apartments. Throwing stars and poisons laying around everywhere. It`s very hard to overlook when trying to befriend a ninja. Better to meet in the park for lunch or something.
