Dedicated to St. Roch, patron saint of healing against the plague and in this case during the Louisiana yellow fever epidemic… this cemetery, chapel and shrine is located off the beaten path in a quiet little area about 10 minutes outside of the French Quarter. At the paranormal division of the historical registry in New Orleans, it is noted that there are ‘sightings’ of a female sanguinary templar vampire that roams the area. She appears in human form and then vanishes into thin air. Caught on instant camera, a timeframe spanning from 1947 to 1961, she appears again and again…

Karen St. Claire: Jackal’N the Ripper [SPOKESMODEL ELECT GALLERY]

In the Warehouse District of Old Saint Louis, Jackal’N strikes again! Traipsing through Benton Park in bent-minded bloodlust attack, the ripper glides past the old warehouse district and continues on past the Historic Lemp Mansion. In 1980, Life Magazine deemed the Lemp Mansion as “One of the 10 most haunted places in America”.
