What was The Watcher case about?

Reeves Wiedeman wrote an article about the case in a 2018 New York Magazine article, The Haunting of a Dream House.

The article tells how Derek and Maria Broaddus bought the house in June 2014.

A few weeks after purchasing their dream home, Maria and Derek began receiving anonymous letters from a person described as the Keeper.

The first letter was a friendly letter welcoming them to the neighborhood.

However, subsequent letters gradually became hostile and aggressive, with an emphasis on Marie and Derek’s three children.

As a result of the ghostly letters, the Broaddus family sought out local law enforcement to locate the sender of the ghostly letters.
