What would you do if you bought property, and all of the sudden, became the recipient of really creepy messages? Well, if you’re the Broaddus family in New Jersey, you’ll sue the town to be able to tear the house down.
When Maria and Derek Broaddus bought their $1.4 million dollar home in 2014, they didn’t expect that a stalker would come with it. The self identified ‘Watcher’ apparently covets the house, and was quick to make his presence known.
One such message read,
“Do you need to fill the house with the young blood I requested? Once I know their names I will call to them and draw them out to me.”
“Have they found out what is in the walls yet? In time they will.”
An even more chilling message read,
“Who has the bedrooms 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.”
After obtaining a few of these messages, the Broaddus’ decided that they couldn’t live in the home. Instead, they made plans to demolish the home and subdivide the land, building two new houses. However, the town they’re living in has gotten in the way.
Westfield, New Jersey’s planning board rejected the Broaddus’ wish to raze the house and subdivide the land. The Broaddus family has since filed suit against the town, reminding them that the letters make it an unsuitable home for them to live in safely.
It is yet to be seen whether the Broaddus family will win their suit and be able to actually put their newly bought land to a safe use.
According to this ‘Watcher’, he’s not the first. A letter to the Broaddus home read,
“My grandfather watched the house in the 1920s and my father watched in the 1960s. It is now my time…I have been put in charge of watching and waiting for its second coming.”
