Vandalism

Removing the pink paint off of the St. Louis Cemetery No. 1 tomb where Voodoo Queen Marie Laveau is believed to be interred won't be a simple task. "Allowing the tomb to remain pink is not an option. The latex paint used by the vandal does not 'breathe,' meaning it doesn't allow moisture to escape, which can be incredibly damaging to old structures, Michelle Duhon, owner of Bayou Preservation said."
