So, whatever happened to voodoo queen Marie Laveau’s husband, Jacques Paris? According to old documents, he was a cabinet maker who married 18-year-old Marie in 1819. He appeared in the New Orleans City Directory (a list of residents and businesses) in 1822. Then, POOF, he disappeared from history.

Marie Delphine LaLaurie, a New Orleans socialite, had been warned about her illegal cruelty to slaves. In 1834, a fire broke out in her home. Rescuers found a cook, age 70, chained to a stove. After LaLaurie refused to give the keys to the slave quarters, the rescuers broke the door and found "7 slaves, more or less horribly mutilated ...,” who claimed to have been imprisoned for months. LaLaurie's house was sacked by an outraged mob, and it is thought that she fled to Paris.
