Christopher Thomas Knight opted out of society at the age of 20. Drove his car into the woods as far as it would go, set the keys on the dash, and walked off. Spent the next 27 years living alone in the wilderness.
Knight burglarized seasonal cabins (in the off-season) to support his lifestyle. Was eventually apprehended while foraging for supplies at a summer camp.
This exchange between Knight and Diane Vance, the arresting officer, immediately followed his capture:
“Address?” asks Vance.
“None,” answers Knight.
“What address do you put on your tax return?”
“No tax returns.”
“Where are your disability checks sent?”
“Where is your vehicle?”
“Who do you live with?”
“Where do you live?”
