If you’re the kind of person who is afraid of the dark or hates horror films, you may want to stop reading now…because this is something straight out of Paranormal Activity.
Actually, it is probably more similar to the plot of Pretty Little Liars, but instead of “A,” we have “The Watcher.”
A couple with three young children just purchased a beautiful home in Westfield, New Jersey last month for $1.3 million. A few days after purchasing it, however, the family began to receive threatening letters from an anonymous writer who calls himself “The Watcher.”
The couple has now decided to sue the owners who sold them the house, claiming that they knew about the stalker after he referenced their names in one of his letters.
Not surprising at all, the current owners refuse to move into the newly purchased six-bedroom house out of fear for the safety of their three children (who “The Watcher” actually targets in his letters).
One of the letters references the children saying, “Once I know their names I will call to them and draw them to me. I asked the [previous owners] to bring me young blood.”
Subsequent letters includes terrifying threats such as, “I am pleased to know your names and the names now of the young blood you have brought to me…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.”
This is some seriously frightening stuff! We don’t blame this poor family for suing the original owners and refusing to move in.
“The Watcher” claims to have ownership over the Westfield home, referencing his father and grandfather who apparently starting ‘watching’ the home as early as the 1920s.
Westfield’s mayor and the local authorities are still investigating the matter.
