The Ochelli Effect with Carmine Savastano Sinister History

In 1833, Madame Marie Delphine LaLaurie chased a small slave girl with a whip until the girl fell off the roof of the house and died. LaLaurie tried to cover up the incident, but police found the body hidden in a well. Authorities decided to fine LaLaurie and force the sale of the other slaves on the estate.

LaLaurie foiled this by secretly arranging for her relatives and friends to buy the slaves , then sneaked them back into the mansion, where she continued to torture them until the night of the fire in April 1834.

After a blaze engulfs much of the estate a mob gathered in protest after learning about LaLaurie’s torture chamber. She and her husband fled by boat, leaving the butler / Coachman to face the wrath of the crowd. His fate is unknown.

Although charges were never filed against LaLaurie, her reputation in upper-class society was destroyed. It is believed that she died in Paris in December 1842. though many other stories of her fate persist to this day alongside multiple Urban Myths and Legends.
