More letters from “The Watcher” continued to arrive, driving the Broadduses nuts with police inquiries, forgery charges and attempts to sell the house.
Who now resides in “The Watcher” home?
Five years after it was first put up for sale, “The Watcher” House was sold to another couple, Andrew Carr and Allison Carr, for $959,000. According to the deed submitted to the Union County Clerk’s Office, the Broaddus family sustained a $400 000 loss. According to The Cut, “The Watcher” has written no letters to the new residents.
“The Watcher” series is based on the harrowing experience of the Broaddus family.
Ryan Murphy’s brand-new Netflix series “The Watcher” has been an immediate hit, topping the list of most watched television programs in the USA.
The Westfield, New Jersey event in 2014 involving a family that moved there and was shortly harassed by a letter writer known only as The Watcher is the basis for the television show. The series fictionalizes the terror the Broaddus family endured, yet the house is authentic.
In 2014, the couple paid $1.3 million for the six-bedroom home on 657 Boulevard in Westfield, New Jersey. The family soon began receiving letters from unknown writers who seemed familiar with many personal details about their lives and the property’s construction.
The notes also cautioned the couple against going downstairs to the basement since their three children “would never hear them weep.” He was now “in charge of observing and waiting for its second arrival” as the building approached its 110th birthday. According to the first letter, the Broadduses’ new home had long been a source of curiosity for family members.
There were various leads. However, it was never determined who the author was. According to the Union County Prosecutor’s Office, the investigation is neither ongoing nor complete. The Broadduses sued John and Andrea Woods, the previous owners, in June 2015 because they too had received a letter from the Watcher days before the sale but had kept it a secret.
The Broadduses were driven nuts by the influx of letters, police inquiries, forgery claims, and attempts to sell the house. They requested potential buyers read The Watcher’s letters as a transparency measure, stopping the bulk of sales.
