Remember the New Orleans witch who uses bones found at Holt Cemetery for "curse work" and "general spells" and wrote about it on Facebook, causing a swell of Internet outrage that some referred to as Boneghazi? It turns out all the attention lead to a raid at the bone collector's Mid-City home.
Agents from the state Attorney General’s Office raided the home of Ender Darling (real name: Devon Marie Machuca), the self-described witch who originally wrote the Facebook post, and recovered "at least 11 bones and four teeth." So far, though, Darling—who uses gender-neutral pronouns—and their roommates have only received summonses for marijuana possession.
The Facebook post and ensuing hubbub lead to a Attorney General’s Office investigation that involved surveillance of Darling's Mid-City home and subpoenaing Facebook correspondence.
Darling has since moved to Florida and has this perfect sorry-not-sorry message for all you muggles:
"I’m sorry I care more than you care about your dead," the witch added.
