If I dropped over a million dollars on a home, it would take a ton to get me to leave. I’d either have to die or make a billion dollars over night and buy a place triple the size. One thing that might get me to move would be received the most chilling letters ever, like this New Jersey family terrorized by some anonymous creep dubbed “The Watcher.”
The Broaddus family—which includes three young kids—only lived in the house for three days before getting their first correspondence from a person who claims he was watching the house. The family is now suing the previous owners for not disclosing information about “The Watcher” prior to the sale, but, can anyone blame them? They’re trying to move a $1.3 million dollar house and letters from a lunatic aren’t exactly a selling point.
The contents of one of the letters came out in the ongoing court case. Here’s an excerpt of one of “The Watcher’s” missives.
“[The house] has been the subject of my family for decades. I have be [sic] put in charge of watching and waiting for its second coming. My grandfather watched in the 1920s and my father watched it in the 1960s. It is now my time.
Do you need to fill the house with the young blood I requested? Have you found all the secrets it holds. Will the young bloods play in the basement. Who has the bedrooms facing the street? I will know as soon as you move in.
Have they found out what’s in the walls yet? I am pleased to know your names now, and the name of the young blood you have brought to me.”
I’m torn about how I’d react in the situation — part of me wants my family to be safe but the other part wants to say “fuck you, I own you, I’m going to catch you, assface.” Tough call.
So far the police have zero leads.
