Hard to tell from the pic , but it seems like there is no corner tape on the drywall . That would make it fairly succeptable to cracking from movement , that's why I was thinking about your utility connection .

Previous owner may have just covered up the existing crack(s) quickly/incorrectly before selling the house. And recent activities on the roof may have caused them to reaper.

Ok, here's what you do.
1. quit making payments
2. rent the house out for 2x's what the mortgage is
3. quit paying taxes, insurance etc.
4. collect the $$$ for 2-3 years before the bank takes it
5. keep the tenants deposit
6. change your phone #
7. use the new found money to pay cash for your next house

Yep, sure looks like no tape.
He says it's paint, unusual paint....looks like wallpaper.

He also said the house is new to him....very likely a "fluff and buff" occurred.
Spackle a corner that should have been taped, then turn up the heat, voila ! the crack reappears.

Case closed.

A quick check may be to look at the soil around the foundation of the house (specifically in that corner). As long as it's not caved in or eroded, your foundation should be fine. I don't think it would be worth tearing the dry wall down to examine the structure unless it happens again or gets noticeably worse.

Like the other guy said maybe previous owner just covered over the crack or there was a problem like a leaky window/roof that was fixed and somebody forgot the corner tape .
