Buyers of a home in Westfield New Jersey being stalked by "The Watcher".  

The Watcher StalkerIt almost sounds like an episode from Criminial Minds but unfortunately for the new owners of a $1.3 million home in Westfield New Jersey the stalking is for real!  Three days after closing was when the new owners were first contacted by the person identifying himself as "The Watcher". After the first letter more followed.  

Contents of these letters were creepy...

"Have they found what's in the walls yet"..."I am in charge of the house"..."bring me young blood"... "will the young bloods play in the basement. Who has the rooms facing the street? I'll know as soon as you move in.  It will help me to know who is in which bedroom then I can plan better." ...."All the windows and door in the house allow me to watch you and track you as you move through the house".

 

According to the lawsuit filed against the previous owners, they too were contacted by "The Watcher" and they failed to disclose this to the new owners for fear of the sale falling through.

That is beyond creepy!  The previous owner should have disclosed.  It's a real catch 22 because I don't know too many buyers that would be willing to take that kind of activity on!

Sounds like there are no laws on the books requiring the disclosure.  I would be be creeped out, but not too worried if the other owners had been receiving the letters for years and no one was hurt.  Of course, I would probably end each night with a pump of a shot gun on the front steps, as I waved into the darkness.
