Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Nydailynews.com: “New Orleans ‘Voodoo Bone Lady’ tour operator arrested after allegedly shooting former beau near her store”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

The operator of New Orleans’ “Voodoo Bone Lady” tour has been arrested after police say she shot her older, former beau.

April Caldwell, or “Onassys Bloomberg" as the 41-year-old woman is reportedly known, was arrested on one count of aggravated battery after an argument near her store ended with her shooting the 56-year-old man in abdomen around 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, the New Orleans Police Department said Wednesday, per NOLA.com.

Records show that since 2014, Caldwell – whose website lists her “New Orleans’ #1 psychic” – has used the Bloomberg pseudonym to run her “5-Star Voodoo Bone Lady Haunted Tours” from the Royal St. building, out of which she also runs Vintage African Masks and the Voodoo Bone Lady Voodoo Shop.

Caldwell’s bail has been set at $100,000 and, if convicted on the aggravated battery charge, she not only faces up to 10 years behind bars, but may lose her tour company.

A city spokeswoman told NOLA.com that in general, tour guides can’t be licensed to operate should they have any felony convictions within the previous years.
