Don Pedro

Don Pedro is believed to be the successor of Doctor John as the main witch doctor of New Orleans. Not too much is known about this man. However, the police would always raid his home because it would be the site of large sexual orgies where both white and colored people took place in. On one night, a police raid led to both scandal and tragedy. At these orgies were a mixture of slaves and even the most respectable white members of high society in New Orleans, whom when discovered by the police were let free. Usually these were the people who took their own lives following the event.
