Default The Wackers

Does anyone remember the story about the wackers. An elderly couple being terrorized by intruders. They would not move and could never find a trace of evidence who was doing all this to them. It is probablly one of the older ones. Late 80's early 90's.

yes, I remember that one. I personally think that the husband is responsible for the whole thing.

It aired originally in 1994. I saw it on Lifetime not too long ago. I really didn't know what to think of the case.

I have went nuts with curiousity wondering what happened with this case. I know its very possible that they both are deceased now. I even emailed the Stark Co. Sheriff's Dept. a few days ago to inquire about whether there was an arrest, but haven't received anything back.

Ninja Man you really think the husband did it? Why what the motive be. My favorite part was "Your lights are a laugh". I still crack people up telling them that when they have survaliance lights.

The more appropriate question is "what would anyone else's motive be?" Why would anyone waste time tormenting an elderly couple who had no known enemies? Furthermore, notes were found on the deck after people had been watching the situation closely. The husband is one of the only ones who could have put them there. There are no clear answers, but it seems that the husband was a little too phony during the interview for me to believe him.

I think Bill Wacker is right it was just soom Koock. I bet he got a kick from it. Man he had some classic quotes. I doubt he did it though. Anyway classic case, someone should write a book about it.

If it wasn't Bill himself, then I wonder if it might have been either their son or son-in-law who was harassing them? It just seems odd that the thug managed to bang on the house and escape undetected even with the younger men watching!
If they've left this world, I hope they were able to find out who was behind it and why!

Self edit. Damn, and it was rather clever, too. But without the preceeding and quoted reference point, deleted from cyberspace, this post is just another excuse to share the orange shorts.

It may not necessarily be Bill, but I do think it is or was somebody close to the Wackers. Perhaps a relative or close friend or neighbor. I reached that conclusion on two points. First, it had stated that the Wackers had changed their phone number several times, but the calls kept coming, which would most likely mean the Wackers (perhaps unknowingly) kept giving out their phone number to the perpetrator or perpetrators. Second, it was stated that the handwriting on the notes that were written appeared that it was done with the opposite hand the writer would usually use, implying that the writer wanted to hide their idendity. That would probably mean that the Wackers would recognize the handwriting had it been written with the hand the writer usually writes with.

We do know that the first attack on Dorothy was by somebody she did not recognize. There are several possibilities here. It could be the perpetrator himself, or it could be an unrelated incident, or it could have been somebody hired by Bill.

Whatever the case may be, I agree with some of the previous posts that it is hard to believe the perpetrator(s) did this stuff for a decade without ever being caught. One has to wonder if it was something supernatural. I have no idea what the motives could be.

Given the Cindy James case can we rule out Mrs. Wacker? Just asking...?

You think she would hit herself over the head and tie herself up?

Good question Ako...

Well Cindy James according to some people did a lot of weird stuff to herself.. .Mrs. Wacker seemed pretty nice but...

Whose to say she didn't tie herself up like Cindy James allegedly did, and :::just hypothetical here::: a)while tying herself up either fell and hit her head accidenty, b)after tying herself up intentionally fell and hit her head or c) faked the head injury

I read somewhere that Munchausen by Proxy (where parents make their children sick or claim their children are sick to gain attention) predominately is found in mothers (women) what about hypocondria?...

I'm not sure what really happened to the Wackers but it seems plausible if we can think it was Mr. Wacker we can't rule out Mrs. Wacker because she appeared to be a victim of a violent crime which is where I was going by the Munchausen.... maybe an intruder/Mr. Wacker really did hit her in the head... whose to say Mrs. Wacker didn't like the attention so much/feared being alone so much that she didn't continue the ruse in order to find some piece of mind???)

The fact that so many people were watching the house, like the Cindy James case leads me to believe it was somebody very close to the Wackers or one/both of the Wackers themselves who were involved.

Like Cindy James this is another good case that raises a lot more questions that it will every answer
