But the story comes damn, damn close:

A JAPANESE man puzzled by food
mysteriously disappearing from his refrigerator got a shock when he
discovered a woman had been living in his home for months without
permission, police said today.

The 57-year-old man who lives alone – or so he

thought – in the western city of Fukuoka installed a security camera

and called the police when he saw images of someone walking around his

home while he was out.

“We searched the house in the man’s presence. We found the woman in the closet,” said a local police spokesman.

The woman, named as 58-year-old Tatsuko Horikawa, was found in a

flat storage space only just big enough for a person to squeeze into

lying down.

And the kicker? She had been there a year, more or less, “but not all the time.” Uh, yeah…
