One of the most famous ghosts of New Orleans is said to be the world famous Voodoo Queen of New Orleans, Marie Laveau. Her spirit has been reported inside of the St. Louis Cemetery No. 1, walking between the tombs wearing a red and white seven knotted turban , and mumbling a New Orleans Santeria Voodoo curse to trespassers. Her Voodoo curse is loud and can be heard by all. Locals say this has started in recent years for she is alarmed by the many vandals and state of the cemetery. Voodoo believers, tourist and locals still come to her tomb every day leaving many Voodoo offerings (candles, food, flowers, the monkey and the cock statue, etc.) in hopes of being blessed by her supernatural powers from beyond the grave. Then there are those who make a wish at her tomb marking three X’s while others say they have her Ghost on film emerging undead from her tomb.
So, when visiting the New Orleans graveyard if you see a shiny black Voodoo cat with read eyes, you may want to run since this is how they Voodoo Queen appears at times.
