Tracy, a Rock Hill, NC., resident and single mother of five, claimed that she heard a thump from above her and that nails had began popping out of her bedroom ceiling. It turns out that her ex-boyfriend, with whom she broke it off with some 12 years ago, was taking up residence in her attic. 

The woman's adult sons along with their nephew found her old flame asleep in the rear of the attic. 

Tracy told WCNC the following regarding the seemingly odd occurrence:

"They found a man. He had packed all the old coats and jackets into the heating unit and was sleeping in the heating unit." 

Before the police arrived on the premises, the jolted ex ran down the stairs and out of the house. The family also found several Sonic cups filled with urine and feces. 

The ex-boyfriend had allegedly rigged the ceiling vents so that he could look down at Tracy in her bedroom from his attic hideaway. The only accessible entrance into the attic is through the door from inside the house that connects to her children's bedrooms.

Tracy also spoke to the Charlotte Observer over the ordeal.

"It got me flabbergasted. How can you look at someone through an air vent?" she said.

Tracy stated that she never even considered the possibility of getting back together with the man, despite the fact that he had sent her letters from prison claiming that he had changed. 

While they were dating, he had become involved with drugs and even robbed a flower shop, which ultimately led to the end of their one-year romance. 

"That was it. I never looked back," she said.

The 44-year-old suspect is still on the loose. He is described as a 5- foot-6-inch black male that weighs 170 pounds.
