Christopher Thomas Knight survived in the woods around North Pond, Maine, by stealing from unoccupied houses from 1986 until this year, 2014. Why did he disappear? "I don't have a reason." "I can't explain why." "Why? That question bores me."
"He was never happy in his youth -- not in high school, not with a job, not being around other people. Then he discovered his camp in the woods. 'I found a place where I was content.'" "He was a true hermit." "Please, he begged, leave me alone; we are not friends. I don't want to be your friend. I don't want to be anyone's friend." "I'm not going to miss you at all."
