The Creepy AF True Story Behind The Watcher on Netflix
It kinda became his issue days later when a fourth (under Broaddus owernship) Watcher letter arrived Feb. 13, 2017.
“This letter contained specific threats and was more derogatory and sinister than any of the previous letters,” Derek and Maria’s lawyer wrote in a brief filed the following month.
This time, per The Cut, the letter was sent “To the vile and spiteful Derek and his wench of a wife Maria.” It read, “You wonder who The Watcher is? Turn around idiots. Maybe you even spoke to me, one of the so called neighbors who has no idea who The Watcher could be. Or maybe you do know and are too scared to tell anyone. Good move.”
The letter, which also noted the media coverage of the house and gave a shoutout to the “soldiers of the Boulevard” who “carried out their mission and saved the soul of 657 Boulevard with my orders,” also listed some possible revenge scenarios, such as a fire or the “mysterious death of a pet.”
But the tenant reportedly agreed to stay, so long as the Broadduses installed some security cameras.
Meanwhile, authorities were investigating, but as Scott Kraus, who worked on the case for the Union County Prosecutor’s Office, told The Cut, “It was like trying to find a needle in a haystack.”
