NEW UPDATE: Statement From Owner of “The Watcher House”:
The owner of “The Watcher House” told Inside Edition he wants prospective buyers to be aware of the details of the "Watcher" before they consider buying the house. He says that he was not provided that information when he bought the house and is therefore suing the prior owners. He also told us that he has instructed his realtor to disclose the information about the “Watcher” when they meet with potential buyers. The realtor in our report was not hired by, and does not represent, the owner of “The Watcher House.”
In addition, the owner says he had placed a written document in the kitchen of the house disclosing the details of the “Watcher.” That document reads in part:
“Prospective Buyers have received this addendum to advise them of ‘The Watcher’s letters.’ These letters have been written by an individual who identifies himself as the home’s ‘Watcher.’ The Sellers…have no knowledge as to who wrote the letters. There is currently a lawsuit pending against the prior property owners for failure to disclose information regarding the ‘Watcher.’”
Inside Edition did not see and was never shown this disclosure by the realtor who showed us the home.
Scott and Laura Cotes say when they bought their home they were never told that the bodies of two murdered women were buried on the property in the 80s. Inside Edition went in search of homes that hold a dark secret like the Cotes', who are suing their realtor under California law saying he failed to disclose their home's dark secret. The realtor denies the allegations. You can visit diedinhouse.com which, for a small fee, will tell you if someone's died in your house.
