The Carter Brothers
Just one block from the Boutique, on the corner of Royal and
St. Ann, is the former home of the notorious Carter Brothers.
In the early 1930s they tormented the Quarter with their thirst
A nine year old girl was reportedly enticed into their home in
1932, tied to a chair, and feasted on by the brothers repeatedly
for three nights. She was able to escape, and tell her story to
the local authorities. When the authorities entered the Carter's
home, they were absent.
However, the authorities did find four additional victims who
were also tied to chairs, and had had their wrists cut, just like
the little girl had. Apparently the brothers let blood from each
victim's wrist into a chalice, from which they then each drank.
The brothers, where tried and convicted and executed in
1936. However, two men fitting their description, have been
sighted many times in the home, and reported as intruders.
