I found bags of hair and disturbing photos in the attic of my rented house – but when I discovered why I was horrified

HORRIFIED housemates made a spine-chilling discovery in the attic that had lain untouched for decades.

The curious tenants went to explore after a previous resident walking past the house last week told them there was “something up in the roof”.

A TikTok video shows what they found in the loft – a creepy "stalker shrine" dedicated to an athletic young man.

Pinned to a bare brick wall is a display of tatty sports shoes and long footy socks.

Nearby is a hanger with a leather jacket and a pair of ripped jeans.

Above the shoes is a gallery of faded photo prints, all of the same young man wearing an Aussie Rules football jersey.

A number of curled negative strips have also been pinned on the wall.

Most disturbing of all are around 15 resealable bags containing hair, cigarettes, used plasters and unknown liquids.

“It was really really scary stuff,” Matt Martin, whose girlfriend lives in the house, told news.com.au.

“Everyone in the house was pretty much terrified. There was some creepy stuff up there.”

It is thought the shrine dates from the early 1990s.

Matt said his pals had contacted their estate agent, who then spoke to the owner.

The landlord reportedly claimed they had been warned by builders before the group moved in that there was something up there.

“They said don’t worry about moving it,” Matt said. “I don’t think they’ve actually seen all the stuff.”

He said TikTok viewers were so freaked out they urged him and his friends to go to the police.

He said: “We called the hotline and they pretty much just said if there’s no body parts don’t worry about it.

“I think one of us is going to have to do the dirty work and get it all down and throw it all out to make sure it’s all gone.”

The current owners of the four-bed house, in Melbourne's Fitzroy district, bought it in 2016 and renovated it but did not touch the loft.

A sales listing said it was being offered for the first time in generations and had a 1970s kitchen and family room.

Yesterday we told how a couple who bought a house at auction in Wales found it was "full of surprises" including a Bible hanging from a hook and a secret door.

Last week another TikTok user found a safe hidden under a carpet for 20 years and wondered how to crack it.

And last year a renter found a "crawl space" in a stairwell that she said was "perfect for serial killers".
