A family home has been trashed by a tenant who left behind $200,000 worth of damage so bad the landlord believes they were members of a cult.

The five-bedroom house in Auckland was left strewn with feathers, blood and human faeces, with some rooms almost totally destroyed.

The words ‘killer’ and ‘die’ were daubed on the walls, windows were smashed and hallways ceilings were left with gaping holes in them.

The tenant was evicted a month ago, but the destruction went unseen until the landlords regained access to the rental home last week.

Property manager Murray Peat, 63, said the condition the house was left in suggested cult activity, Caters News Agency reported.

‘I’m still absolutely amazed that anyone could do this. I had to wonder – were they part of a cult?’ he said. 

‘There were feathers everywhere, I wondered if it was for some sort of sacrifice. Then there were poles stuck through the doors at these bizarre angles.’

‘I’ve seen the occasional hole in the wall, but I’ve never seen anything like it,’ he said.

‘We’ve been left with a shell of a house.’

Insurers told Mr Peat the havoc wreaked inside the home was the worst they have ever seen.

New Zealand Police are investigating the incident, while Mr Peat is still trying to figure out why the tenants destroyed the home. 

‘There was no reason for revenge or anything. They had been quite reasonable and paid his bills until a few weeks before abandonment,’ he said.

‘I really have no idea what it was all about, I’m at a loss.’
