A man from Sydney, Australia reportedly shot and killed an intruder in 2002, and kept the body in his home for 15 years.

Bruce Roberts, known by the community as a hermit and extreme hoarder, allegedly killed Shane Snellman when he tried to break into Roberts’ house, according to EWN.

Roberts died 15 years later in 2017 of natural causes and only much later when his house was cleaned was the body discovered. It was apparently surrounded by over 70 air fresheners.

Several firearms were also found in his house.

It is unclear whether Snellman was ever reported missing.
