It’s every kid’s dream to discover a magic closet or a passageway leading to another world hidden in their home. Probably hoping to stumble upon a stashed old treasure chest somewhere, people could sometimes unveil the most horrific truths if they peak behind, let’s say, the bookcase. Like, for example, someone secretly living in your private home that uses a hidden corridor to appear in the middle of the night while you are asleep.
A British boy and his younger brother were playing in their parents’ bedroom when one of them accidentally pushed the other against the family’s bookcase. The boy pulled down all the shelves and a hidden staircase revealed behind. When the boys peaked to see what’s behind the bookcase they discovered a spiraling down staircase that led to a place in the house nobody knew existed.
Then the curious boys followed the staircase down and saw an even creepier crawlspace where many signs such as food leftovers and blankets on the floor clearly showed that someone was actually living there. The boys also found a spooky baby doll, a key that had a peculiar shape and a carved hand-made elephant statue.
Currently, the family’s house is under police investigation that followed after the boys reported their discovery.
