The infamous "Watcher House" in Westfield has been sold.
The Westfield home became known when a stalker started sending threatening letters to it.
The Broaddus family bought the house for $1.3 million, but just as they were about to move in they received threatening letters aimed at their children by someone calling themselves "The Watcher."
One of the letters said, "Do you need to fill the house with the young blood I requested?"
The previous owner didn't say that they received any such letters so the Broaddus family tried to get their money back. They were unsuccessful.
Since then, they've had a renter in the home and now the house is being sold to a new couple.
The Broaddus family is taking a loss of $400,000 on the sale.
The story of "The Watcher" has gotten so much attention that the premise is being turned in to a movie by Netflix.
