Bill Cosby sentenced to at least 3 years in state prison

Home allegedly stalked by eerie 'Watcher' back on market for $1.25M


Six bedrooms. Four bathrooms. One stalker.

A colonial-style Westfield, New Jersey, home that made headlines after the current owners claimed someone who identified himself as "The Watcher" sent them creepy, anonymous letters is back on the market for $1.25 million, NJ.com reports.

According to USA Today, Derek and Maria Broaddus bought the house for $1.3 million in 2014, but the couple and their three children never moved in after supposedly receiving threatening letters from the so-called "Watcher."

"My grandfather watched the house in the 1920s and my father watched in the 1960s. It is now my time," one letter read, according to NBC News.

The writer also said, "Do you need to fill the house with the young blood I requested? Once I know their names I will draw them to me," NJ.com reports.

The Broadduses tried to sell the house but failed. Last summer, the couple sued the previous owners, John and Andrea Woods, claiming that they knew about the stalker but kept quiet, according to The Associated Press and NJ.com. The Woodses denied the accusations, saying they did receive an anonymous letter but that it wasn't disturbing. They have filed a counterclaim against the Broadduses for causing them emotional distress.
