A group of Ohio students were renting an off-campus house. It was convenient and they could all share in the expenses. Great, huh? Not so fast. Maybe it was not such a bargain after all. They were soon telling others that a ghost was also living there.
Mysteriously, doors were left open and some things were moved. They heard strange noises in the walls. This was starting to get freaky!
In the middle of September, some of the students got up enough courage to investigate. They went to the basement and discovered a locked door which they thought was a utility closet or maintenance room. The Realtor eventually came and opened the "mystery" door, only to discover a "secret" bedroom. Someone was definitely living there. There was a bed, and clothes lay around the room. They also found pictures on the wall and some food and textbooks.
Someone recognized the young man in the pictures. It was a fellow student named Jeremy. Well, at least the "ghost" had a name. Come to find out, Jeremy had been living there for months, without anyone knowing about it - free of charge. The locks were changed soon thereafter... you know, to keep the ghosts out!
