THe child-like rumours included Boo eating squirrels and lurking in the darkness at night. The Radleys were very private and rarely attended Maycomb's social functions. Although they were religious, they did not attend church but worshiped at home. Mr. Radley's occupation is never given; apparently, he did not work. According to Miss Stephanie, one day the 33 year old Boo stabbed his father in the leg with a pair of scissors and then wiped them on his own pants. The sheriff locked Boo in the courthouse basement for a while before Mr. Radley had him removed and returned to the Radley house. Following Mr. Radley's death, Boo's brother Nathan returned from Pensacola to live at his old home.
