Teen Found Living in North Texas Walmart

Updated: Wednesday, August 13 2014, 03:25 PM CDT

Information from KTVT.

Customers of a Corsicana Walmart who walked down the aisle with the baby strollers never noticed two hidden compounds where police say a 14-year-old boy was able to store necessities, sleep in a makeshift bed and eat items taken from inside the store. "You never expect that you're at Walmart and someone has been living there for four days that crazy," says customer Myrna Aguilar.

Corsicana Police say the teen created a crack in the back wall of the drink aisle to grab juice, and that he even collected a fish from the pet department.  Photos show the clothing that employees say the boy would change in and out of every few hours to avoid detection.  

Sources say he was so concerned about being caught he wore diapers instead of using the store restroom. Eventually, a trash trail led to the teen's discovery. "I'm wondering what his parents think and how come he didn't come home and why aren't they worried about him," says customer Megan Nicholson.

Police were called and they released the boy to the custody of relatives. Officers say told the boy was visiting other relatives when he disappeared. Child Protective Services says they are usually called in to investigate cases like this, but were not called this time.

Walmart has not said whether it plans to file criminal charges.
