Home sweet someone else’s home

‘After a holiday you expect to find a few bills waiting for you – but not another person living in your house.

But that’s exactly what Beverly Mitchell from Douglasville in the US found after returning from 2-½ weeks in Greece. When she saw the lights on and a strange car in the driveway, she called the police. They found another woman, Beverly Valentine, in the house, the news website IOL reported.

Authorities say they don’t know why Valentine, 54, broke into the home and acted like it was her own, even going so far as ripping up carpet, changing utilities into her name and painting rooms.

“In 28 years I’ve never seen something this strange,” said Chief Sheriff’s Deputy Stan Copeland.’
