The family found excreta outside their home up to “several times a week” in a distressing attack that has lasted for years. They had no indication of who the poor ghost is or why they were using their house as a toilet, but recently decided to take matters into their own hands by installing cameras.
At the end of last year, they spent £ 600 on a CCTV system to try to identify the culprit and finally report him to the police.
And last week, cameras were successful in their purpose when they caught a man defecating in public on Tuesday morning.
Although the video does not confirm the man was responsible for the other incidents, the family is convinced it was probably him.
Images show the man releasing explosive diarrhea before using a sheet of toilet paper to wipe himself off, then throwing it on the floor when he’s done.
The stay-at-home mom, who wished to remain anonymous, said: “You will wake up and there will be poo when you leave the house.
“Then you will see her symbolic piece of toilet paper, it’s like a business card.”
The family, based in Hove, East Sussex, said the problem has persisted for two years as they often wake up to find liquid feces in the alley behind their house.
The increased frequency of pooing made them fearful of being deliberately targeted, leading them to contact council environmental officials and Sussex Police for help.

“Someone walked in once, it’s just disgusting. It’s a very specific explosive diarrhea.”
Pooping in public places is punishable by a fine of £ 75 under the Environmental Protection Act 1990.
A council spokesperson said: “It is illegal to ‘urinate or defecate’ in public.
“As this incident took place on private land, any cleanup would primarily be the responsibility of the landowner and the police.
“Our environmental law enforcement team is available to advise the landowner and has the authority to investigate and enforce on their behalf upon request.”
