                        Is it possible this started out as a prank by some bored teenager and then since they were the only ones who took it seriously and then things just spiraled out of control? No one else took the notes seriously and threw them out and nothing happened, but this family takes it seriously and are taunted by it. Seems like a possibility.

                                          The Watcher’s whole gimmick no matter how disturbing it is is kinda cool, I feel like if I got the letters I would just yell to everyone “I’m watching you wazowski, always watching”

                                              The fact that the family went to a therapist and the wife even had diagnosed ptsd is really telling thag they weren't involved.

                                                            I live in the town next to Westfield NJ... Westfield and the towns near it are so peaceful, safe, and nothing really bad happens.. so when this happened everyone was in shocked. They are making a Netflix series based off of this case..the people that sold the house knew about this watcher but didn't tell the family.. the stalker would go to different post offices to mail the letters.. that's why it is hard to get the watcher.. the police are still trying to figure out this case...

                                                              One thing they left out in this video is how "The Watcher" would write about living in the walls of the house and that is how he got his information
