St. Louis Cemetery No. 1, where the first burials date back to 1800, can't seem to catch a break. First it was the bright pink paint over Voodoo Queen Marie Laveau's tomb. In an even more WTF move, someone posing as a tour guide is removing bricks from the tombs to take pictures of the bodies inside and in some instances, removing bones. "It used to be we found one damaged tomb a month, but we've noticed ten in the last six weeks," says Angie Green with Save Our Cemeteries. [NOLA.com]
