Voldemort broke into Bertha Jorkin's mind to obtain her memories after
Crouch modified them to hide his son who he helped escape from Azkaban
And barley could, and damaged Bertha's mind in doing so. And this is
one of the most powerful wizards around.
There are a couple of possibilities. First, forcefully breaking into
someone else's mind will cause braindamage, or it is possible to do it
without turning the person into a drooling vegitable but Voldemort didn't
really give a damn. I tend to lean towards the latter. If I was an evil
overlord, I really wouldn't care as long as I learned every little secret.
With Bertha, yes - he didn't care; he just took what he wanted and destroyed
the evidence (her) afterwards.
However it was different with Dd - imagine the kick he'd have had from
entrancing Dd and either planting one of his horcruxes right under his nose
or removing something from Dd's office to make into a horcrux. What safer
place to keep it as well - the last place anyone would ever think to look...
