Let $N$ be a hyperbolic 3-manifold and $B$ a component of the interior of $AH(\pi_1(N))$, the space of marked hyperbolic 3-manifolds homotopy equivalent to $N$. We will give topological conditions on $N$ sufficient to give $\mathcal{p}\in \overline{B}$ such that for every sufficiently small neighbourhood $V$ of $\mathcal{p}, V \bigcap B$ is disconnected. This implies that $\overline{B}$ is not a manifold with boundary.
