Westfield, NJ (AP) A New Jersey house whose current owners were scared off the property by a creepy letter writer known as “The Watcher’’ has sold for $400,000 less than the owners paid.
Derek and Maria Broaddus bought the Westfield home for $1,355,657 in 2014, but they didn’t move in after receiving the first of four letters from the anonymous stalker.
NJ.com reports Andrew and Allison Carr purchased it for $959,360. It was originally listed for $1.25 million in 2016.
Andrew Carr declined comment.
In a series of letters, the “Watcher’’ asked if the Broadduses were bringing “young blood’’ into the home and asked the names of their two children. They claimed the writer had a “mentally disturbed fixation’’ on the home.
The writer was never found. A judge threw out lawsuits stemming from the purchase.
