Twenty seven years ago a young guy walked out into the woods and never came back. Until last Thursday.
Christopher Knight, 47 years old wore the same aviator style glasses that he had entered the woods with. Surviving by stealing from vacation cabins over a thousand times he was finally caught by law enforcement last week via the use of motion detecting game cams.
He kept a fairly neat camp but never lit a fire worried about being detected by the smoke. He cooked and heated using stolen propane canisters.
Law enforcement in the interviews on you tube seemed fairly sympathetic. Mr. Knight fully acknowledged that he had stolen, and was articulate if slow spoken.
I'd hope he gets a new pair of glasses and finds himself a place in society.
Lots of good photos and interviews on the link above.
