Following the death of infamous pirate Jean LaffiteInfamous pirate who died, his men returned to Louisiana to the beautiful antebellum mansion, Chretienne Point, in order to rob its namesake, Madame Chretienne. Chretienne was a close friend of Laffite and was a rather wealthy recluse. When she heard the pirates breaking into her home, she fled and looked for an escape, but became cornered by one of them. Brandishing the Derringer pistol she had hidden within her clothing, Chretienne shot the assailant between the eyes, causing the others to evacuate at the sound of the gunshot. She proceeded to stow the body away in the closet, where it remained for three long days until authorities could reach her rather secluded abode.
The bloodstains in the closet have never been able to be washed away, serving as a reminder of the killing that took place in the home so very long ago. Madame Chretienne’s ghost continues to roam the halls of her mansion at night, perhaps ridden with guilt from taking a life.
