I saw one of the worst cases of hoarding this past weekend. It was about the woman who is a psychologist herself, but a terrible hoarder. There was leaking water all inside the house and mold and also it was totally infested with ROACHES. They were everywhere. They were crawling on the walls, on all the clothes, on the kitchen counters. There was standing water in the kitchen sink with mosquitoe larvae hatching! The roaches would jump on you when you walked in the front door! The adult son said they crawled all over him while he tried to sleep! They were all in the fridge! It was CRAZY.
When they moved the fridge out, there was a mound of roach poop about a foot high!!!!!!! This case was really crazy. THe only thing they didn't find was dead animals or maybe the roaches ate them! Seriously.
What was so crazy about this case is that when they were cleaning it up, they had a pile for DONATE. DONATE? Are you kidding me? Everything in that house was infested with roaches. WHO in their right mind would consider donating that filthy stuff? The person in charge should have explained you can't donate disease ridden items.
