New Lizzie Borden Evidence

New Lizzie Borden Evidence, While today’s suspected high-profile killers (think Casey Anthony) get front page of Us Weekly and People, back in 1892, you could be immortalized in a “twisted nursery rhyme”:

“Lizzie Borden took an Ax, And gave her mother forty whacks, When she had seen what she had done, She gave her father forty-one.”

Lizzie Borden, at age 32, was accused of hacking her father and stepmother to death with an ax, but was eventually acquitted. Now, 120 years after the widely publicized murder trial took place, new evidence has emerged in the form of two handwritten journals kept by the family’s attorney, Andrew Jackson Jennings, reported the Boston Globe.

According to The Herald News, the journals shed new light on the relationships between Borden’s father and her and her sister.

Lizzie, not her sister Emma, became the prime suspect of the horrific killings since she stood to gain financially by their deaths. Her falling out with the stepmother was also a strike against her. At the trial, she was depicted as emotionless, and her father – a man who did little for his daughters.
