I know many people complain about this, living alone, no friends or family, looked at as weird. This guy seemed to live just like that. He seems to have SA too, and i wonder about the real story of his life. I don't think its normal for people to live like this, decades ago he probably would of at least been around more family, I think. Why are people really living like this? its not because they want to obviously. I think people have much less opportunity to form relationships now and its more about individualism and materialism. Why would anyone live like this unless they had little else they could do.Those who did interact with Stephens offered nearly uniform accounts: Reserved, polite, didn't bother anyone. If anything, there was pity for the 61-year-old, who lived alone, had few visitors and was currently unemployed.
But none of his neighbors really knew him. No one could say where he was from, or where he had previously worked.
He has few relatives in the metro Atlanta area, and none have consented to interview requests.
His only companion was a stray cat he used to feed. Neighbors say Stephens suspected the cat was killed by some kids who sometimes teased him.
