5. The Observer Letters
It happened recently, in New Jersey. A family of tenants sued the owner of the house, a colonial-style mansion built in 1905, because they received letters from someone who called himself “the observer.”
Especially disturbing was the macabre language used by the broadcaster, who referred to the children of the marriage as “that young blood that you have brought me”. The family ended up leaving the house out of fear, but they filed a complaint with the owner, who later discovered that he already had knowledge of the observer.
A shiver runs down the back when, reading the letters, one realizes that “the observer” gives details of the interior of the house.The story soon hit the public eye and no one wanted to buy the house so it was eventually demolished and two new houses were built in its place. 6. The grave robber
