The Borden Murders

Description: This collection is information pertaining to the murders of Andrew and Abby Borden on August 4, 1892. To this day, this is still and unsolved murder case.
Shortly before noon on August 4, 1892, the body of Andrew Borden, a prosperous businessman, was found in the parlor of his Fall River, Massachusetts, home. As neighbors, police and doctors arrived at the scene, the body of Abby Borden, his wife, was discovered in an upstairs bedroom. A week later, Andrew's younger daughter, Lizzie, was arrested for the double murder. In an era when women were considered the "weaker" sex and female murderers were nearly unheard of, the trial - and subsequent acquittal - of Lizzie Borden made her a media sensation. Officially, the case remains unsolved, but Lizzie Borden may very well have taken an ax and ended her parents' lives on that sweltering summer day.
