Girl Thought Her Apartment Was Haunted, Finds Creepy Man Inside Closet Wearing Her Clothes

Let me tell you guys a secret: I am a grownup independent woman, but I sleep at night with the lights switched on because I am afraid that there is a monster under my bed waiting to eat me alive.

There, I said it. And I know there are MANY others like me who feel the same way.

I’m also pretty sure that if I had been in this girl’s place, I would have run away from home much sooner!

Maggie, a college student from North Carolina, says that a “ghost” was haunting her in her off-campus apartment.

“I’ve been having, like, pieces of clothes missing. Like shirts and pants,” says Maddie.

Items were disappearing and handprints were left behind on the bathroom wall.

It wasn’t until much later that she and her roommates discovered the “ghost” – a man sitting inside the closet wearing her clothes!

“I just hear rattling in my closet. It sounded like a raccoon in my closet,” Maddie said. “I’m like ‘Who’s there?’ And somebody answers me. He’s like, ‘Oh, my name is Drew.’ I open the door and he’s in there, wearing all of my clothes. My socks. My shoes. And he has a book bag full of my clothes.”

The man’s name was Andrew Swofford and he was 30-years old. The word ‘creepy’ doesn’t even cover the scenario, tbh.

Maddie called her boyfriend afterwards and while waiting for him to arrive, spoke to Drew to keep him distracted.

“He tries on my hat. He goes in the bathroom and looks in the mirror and then is like ‘You’re really pretty, can I give you a hug?’” she recalled. “But he never touched me.”

Nobody knows how did he get in the first place. And the girls reveal that this is not the first time strange men have entered their apartment without them knowing. In the past, they had found two strange men sitting in their living room.

Having been really creeped out, Maddie and her roommate says they have had enough.

“Last night I did not feel safe. I slept with my roommate in her bed,” she said. “I can’t stay here. My closet, it stinks. Every time I go in [my room] there’s a bad vibe. I’m just ready to leave.”

Since I’m getting actual goosebumps at the moment, let me just go and check if my door is double-locked. Brb.
