What you can expect
Delve into the sinister side of New Orleans, a 300-year-old city with an eerie and often grisly past. Not for the faint of heart, this adults-only murderous tour takes you on a journey through the sordid details of NOLA's real-life murder stories including the Trunk Murders and the Katrina Cannibal.
Meet your knowledgeable guide in the heart of the French Quarter and set off on foot into the centuries-old streets. Steady your nerves as you make your way to one of your stops of the night, the towering and terrifying LaLaurie Mansion. As you gaze up at the building looming over Royal Street, hear the gut-twisting tale of the 19th-century socialite who tortured and murdered her slaves.
Your tour then leads you by the luxurious Omni Royal Orleans where Zachary Bowen, commonly known today as the Katrina Cannibal, committed suicide. In this gruesome story, learn the disturbing details of the military veteran who killed his girlfriend in the most alarming way, later taking his own life in remorse.
With the echoes of these terrifying crimes still crying out, make your final stop outside 715 Ursulines Avenue. It was here that 2 murders once labeled “the most brutal committed in New Orleans history” happened in 1927. Listen with horror as your guide recounts the true story of the sisters-in-law who were viciously attacked and stuffed into trunks by one of their husbands. Learn how the man was eventually caught and how he was punished.
