Rock Hill, SC woman’s ex-boyfriend found living in her attic
ROCK HILL Tracy, a single mother of five children in Rock Hill, never considered reuniting with the 44-year-old man she broke up with more than 12 years ago, despite claims of a new lifestyle and other “jailhouse talk” he penned in letters to her from prison.
Drugs, followed by his decision to rob a flower shop, tore their one-year romance apart, she said.
“That was it,” said Tracy, who asked that her last name not be used. “I never looked back.” But it wasn’t “it” for her ex-boyfriend, whom she discovered living in her attic Sunday morning, a year after he helped install new doors on her home after most of it burned in a fire.
Tracy said she thought her ex went to Charleston after his latest arrest and was just commuting to Rock Hill. Instead, he had been sneaking into her house and living in her attic, a Rock Hill Police report states. He used coats for cover and slept inside the heating unit.
