Folk Figure. New Orleans madam whose crypt was once believed to be haunted; it was rumored that the statue of the woman in front of the tomb would come to life and walk the cemetery grounds at night. It was later discovered that a street light reflecting off the tomb gave it a reddish glow, lending credence to the rumors of the haunting. Josie Arlington's body was later moved to an unknown location within the same cemetery. (bio by: Joel Manuel)

While I was on vacation in New Orleans Louisiana; I stopped by Metairie Cemetery to visit your tomb Josie. My husband took this picture of me sitting at the steps of your tomb. Absolutely beautiful! Sadly your niece sold it to the Morales family.
