Well I just cant believe the Wackers did that or knew who did it. Do you think it could have been a relative of theirs? What do you know about the Wackers? I am assuming you met them. Bill passed away in 1999 but I am assuming Dorothy is still alive because I couldnt find anything on her. I am assuming it is a small town they lived in. Did they eventually move?

As someone said, Dorothy was taken to the hospital at one point due to injuries by this supposed attacker. It is possible that the man who used the phone was an isolated incident, and she happened to be a suitable victim for a robbery as he saw it. It could be that the Wacker's fell victim to a non-sequitar line of reasoning, that is their conclusions do not follow from their premise. Just because she was attacked by a stranger once does not mean he is responsible for the notes and the ransacked house. However, I feel that they are involved in this themselves for a publicity stunt, and it is likely Dorothy's injuries were not a result of an attack at all but perhaps of a fall or some other previous injury. Even though the neighbors found her tied up, it is possible she and Bill staged that incident.

it is telling that no one, to my knowledge, ever came forward and recognized the composite drawing of the blonde haired man. Presumably if they really were being harassed, it would be from someone in the neighborhood who had easy access to their house on a whim. If no one recognized the drawing, it is unlikely this face represented any real person.

I think I'm 50/50 on this one. On one hand it seems so unlikely that Bill would be in on it given how long he had been married to Dorothy, but the more I think about it, the more Bill's actions seem fishy. Here's some new things I just thought of:

-Hovalash had a good point about thinking Bill didn't get the police involved enough. That reminded me that Bill waitied until the third time his house had been burglarized to contact the police. I think most everyone would be calling the police the first time around. Also, why did they just do one stakeout. Since they had gotten close during the first stakeout (perpetrator came around just after it ended), why not do more?
-Bill wouldn't even entertain the idea of moving. I can kind of see where's he's coming from a little bit, but if a loved one of mine had been attacked twice (not to mention all of the other stuff they put up with), I would at least consider moving, if not definitely move.
-I kind of touched upon this in an earlier post, but the main reason I think The Wackers knew who was doing this was due to the perpetrator calling, even after they had changed their phone number several times. Unless they kept having their phone number listed, which would seem unlikely given what was happening to them, the person calling almost certainly would have had to get the number from the Wackers

I don't think it could be Bill, really... To suddenly do something like that... And surely other people would have to be involved. How do you get someone to do that?

"I'm looking for someone to help torment my wife."

I really don't think so.

If it has stopped, maybe it stopped before he died. Maybe it's still going on, though. If it stopped around the time he died, well... that would be very telling.

If it's still going on, that would be sick. Not only was she old then, but she's even older now... That segment was pretty old.

Sorry to bring back this exhausted topic, but did anyone else think it was weird that seconds after the Wackers surveillance ended (when they had various family members staked out in the neighborhood), the rumple was heard and the note was left: "Get the message?" It may or may not be Bill Wacker, but I believe it's got to be somebody close to the Wackers, perhaps somebody in their immediate family.

somebody awhile back mentioned that Dorothy Wacker smiled at one point when Bill was talking. I hadn't noticed it before, but I just rewatched the segment yesterday, and they were right. SHE IS SMILING! I think this case just took yet another turn.....
