Home allegedly stalked by eerie 'Watcher' back on market for $1.25M

Six bedrooms. Four bathrooms. One stalker.

A colonial-style Westfield, New Jersey, home that made headlines after the current owners claimed someone who identified himself as "The Watcher" sent them creepy, anonymous letters is back on the market for $1.25 million, NJ.com reports.

According to USA Today, Derek and Maria Broaddus bought the house for $1.3 million in 2014, but the couple and their three children never moved in after supposedly receiving threatening letters from the so-called "Watcher."

"My grandfather watched the house in the 1920s and my father watched in the 1960s. It is now my time," one letter read, according to NBC News.

The writer also said, "Do you need to fill the house with the young blood I requested? Once I know their names I will draw them to me," NJ.com reports.

The Broadduses tried to sell the house but failed. Last summer, the couple sued the previous owners, John and Andrea Woods, claiming that they knew about the stalker but kept quiet, according to The Associated Press and NJ.com. The Woodses denied the accusations, saying they did receive an anonymous letter but that it wasn't disturbing. They have filed a counterclaim against the Broadduses for causing them emotional distress.

More popular and trending stories

As if you needed another excuse not to clean your house.

According to KFVS, brown recluse spiders become more active as the weather warms up – just in time for spring cleaning.

Here's what you need to know to identify – and avoid – the unwelcome arachnids:

>> Read more trending stories

1. What do they look like? The nocturnal spiders can be as large as a half-dollar and usually have violin-shaped markings on their upper body. 

>> PHOTOS: Top 10 terrifying spiders

2. Where are they found? According to Live Science, brown recluses live in the southern and central U.S., including the following states:

  • Alabama 
  • Arkansas
  • Georgia
  • Illinois
  • Indiana
  • Iowa
  • Kansas
  • Kentucky
  • Louisiana 
  • Mississippi
  • Missouri
  • Nebraska
  • Ohio
  • Oklahoma
  • Tennessee
  • Texas

They like "dark, secluded places," such as in closets or under garbage cans, Live Science reports. They might be lurking in boxes, shoes or clothes in your garage or basement, Holly Schwarting, who works for Kansas State University's Department of Entomology, told KFVS.

3. Are brown recluses dangerous? While fatalities are rare, you definitely don't want to get bitten by one.

"The brown recluse spider's bite can be kind of a nasty one," Schwarting told KFVS. "Their venom contains a material that causes our tissue to break down, so it can create a lesion and a slow-healing wound."

The bite may have a red or purple circle around it, according to MedlinePlus. Bite victims may experience discomfort, chills, itching, nausea, fever and sweating, the site says. Rarely, the bites can cause jaundice, kidney failure, blood in urine, seizures and comas. 

You should go to the nearest hospital, call 911 or contact the National Poison Control Center at 1-800-222-1222 if you think you've been bitten, according to MedlinePlus.

4. How can I protect myself while cleaning? 

Schwarting offered the following tips to KFVS:

  • Wear leather gloves
  • Shake out shoes and coats
  • Set up glue traps
  • Pay attention to your surroundings

Trump’s former $95 million mansion to be torn down

Trending on Facebook

More popular and trending stories

An oceanfront mansion Donald Trump sold to a Russian billionaire for $95 million in 2008 is going to be torn down.

The demolition of the estate, which was the largest single residential sale ever in Palm Beach, Florida, was approved this week.

>> PHOTOS: Former Trump estate

Long before he became the 2016 Republican presidential front-runner, Trump purchased the mansion in 2004 at a foreclosure auction for $41.4 million. He then renovated the property before selling it to fertilizer mogul Dmitry Rybolovlev in July 2008, five months before the Great Recession hit Palm Beach.

The Architectural Commission green-lighted the demolition in a 4-3 vote.

Commissioners were not given specifics about what is being planned at the property, which measures 6 acres with 475 feet of oceanfront views.

But sources familiar with the estate told Palm Beach Daily News that it may be subdivided and redeveloped into two or three houses.

The main house encompasses about 62,000 square feet. Outbuildings bring the total square footage to 81,738, according to property records.

Landscape architect Lynn Bender told the board that once the demolition was complete, the lot would be resodded until plans for it were finalized. Only the perimeter walls, fences, access gates, columns and small portion of main entry driveway will be retained. A fountain at the main entrance also will be removed.

Known as Maison de L’Amitie, the estate was the longtime home of the late health care magnate Abe Gosman, who lost it in foreclosure. Gosman died in 2013.

Over the past several years, the estate was among the disputed assets in contentious divorce proceedings, stemming from 2009, between Rybolovlev and his ex-wife, Elena. Last June, a Swiss judge reduced her $4.8 billion payout to about $604 million, but the couple reportedly settled for an undisclosed amount said to be close to $1 billion. Details were also not disclosed about whether ownership of the house had changed.

Commissioners discussed the project for about 25 minutes Wednesday. Newly-elected chairman Richard Sammons recused himself from the agenda item because of conflict, although he did not provide specifics as to why.

Anthony Mauro, of Mauro Brothers LLC, spoke on behalf of the owner’s representatives at the meeting.

A carriage house built in the 1930s is the oldest building on the property. The French provincial-style main house, finished by Gosman in 1988, has one story and a basement. “The house is in relatively good shape,” Mauro said.

Commissioner Michael Small said he was given a tour. “It truly is an exquisite property,” he said.

Mauro said there are a number of people interested in buying it.

Vice Chairwoman Ann Vanneck voted against the demolition. After the vote she explained that in demolition cases, commissioners usually are given an itemized list of trees that will be affected by the demolition with corresponding photos. Applicants typically include a notation for each plant listed as to whether plans call for it will be left in place, relocated or removed.

Top 20 most expensive ZIP codes for renters

Trending on Facebook

More popular and trending stories

You’ve heard it before: It’s really expensive to live in New York or San Francisco. The amount some people in those cities spend on rent in one year would be enough for a down payment on a home in much of the country.

>> Read more trending stories

To figure out which areas of these pricey locales have the most outrageous rents, RENTCafé, an apartment-search website, analyzed the rents charged in apartment buildings with 50 or more rental units in ZIP codes containing at least 200 rental units.

The data comes from Yardi Matrix, a rental market data service, and includes rents for units of all sizes from 2015. It was a nationwide analysis, but the 20 most expensive ZIP codes for renters were all in two states: New York and California. The list is overwhelmed by New York City ZIP codes — actually, even that’s too broad a category. They’re all in one part of New York: Manhattan.

It would take a pretty hefty income to be able to afford these areas. On top of the cost, there’s the fact that these are highly competitive rental markets, so even if you could pay thousands of dollars in rent each month, getting a place wouldn’t be easy. 

So if you feel like your building charges a ton in rent, looking at this list of high-end ZIP codes might make you feel a little better. Unless, of course, you live in any of these places.

ZIP codes are in New York City unless otherwise noted.

A young girl is inspiring people across the country after she shaved her head in support of her 3-year-old cousin, who’s battling cancer.

Morgan Weyland, 8, of Somerset County, Pennsylvania, walked into SmartStyle Hair Salon Monday and asked the stylist to shave her head.

“That little girl has a heart of gold. There’s not many kids that would do that,” Amanda Thompson, Weyland's hairstylist, told WJAC.

Weyland's cousin, Cooper Evens, was recently diagnosed with Burkitt lymphoma. Evens has a tumor in one of his intestines as a result of the rare type of lymphoma.

Weyland has another cousin and an aunt who both have breast cancer.

Evens’ mother, Kayla Nicklow, said Weyland's support means the world to the family.

“It was pretty powerful and meant a lot to us because with Cooper just being 3 and having a rare kind of cancer, it’s nice to see all the support that we have been getting from Morgan and the family,” said Nicklow.

Weyland said she wants to cure cancer when she grows up. Her hair will be donated to Wigs for Kids.

9 cities where it's getting cheaper to rent

Trending on Facebook

More popular and trending stories

It will come as a surprise to no one that rent prices in most of the country’s largest markets are expected to rise in 2016, according to a forecast from real estate data company Zillow. But there’s some good news in that forecast, even for people who live in some of the most expensive cities in the country: Rents won’t increase as much as they have been, Zillow predicts.

>> Read more trending stories  

For example, in 2015, rents in San Francisco grew 12.5 percent, but this year, Zillow expects that growth rate to slow to 5.9 percent. Of course, that’s probably not too comforting to a population of renters that already lives in one of the most competitive, expensive markets in the country, especially since Zillow said people in San Francisco can expect to spend 40 percent of their income on rent in 2016.

West Coast rents are an extreme — Zillow data says the three most expensive cities for renters are all in California. At the same time, tenants throughout the U.S. can expect modest rent increases, with a projected annual growth rate of 1.1 percent in 2016, from a median monthly rent of $1,381 to $1,396. 

And in some bigger cities, rents are poised to drop. They’re not necessarily the cheapest places to live, but they’re certainly not anywhere near the $3,699-per-month people can expect to pay in San Jose, California, this year.

Out of the 35 largest metro areas in the country, nine cities will see rent price drops in 2016, Zillow predicts.

9. Detroit

4. Pittsburgh

3. Chicago

December 2015 Median Monthly Rent: $1,633Projected December 2016 Median Monthly Rent: $1,611Change: -1.4%

2. Las Vegas

December 2015 Median Monthly Rent: $1,212Projected December 2016 Median Monthly Rent: $1,191Change: -1.8%

1. Indianapolis

December 2015 Median Monthly Rent: $1,181Projected December 2016 Median Monthly Rent: $1,138Change: -3.6%

No matter where you’re looking to rent, good credit can make the process of finding a new place a lot easier since landlords tend to look at a version of your credit report when screening tenants. If buying a home is an option, that may be the more economical choice, as a monthly mortgage payment is sometimes less expensive than the median rent in some areas.
