I have answered so many questions and I am so confused I don't know one thing from another. I am telling you just as nearly as I know." - Lizzie Borden "I knew there was an old axe down cellar- that is all I knew." - Lizzie Borden "Lizzie Borden took an axe, and gave her mother forty whacks, when she saw what she had done, she gave her father forty-one."

In 1892, Fall River, Massachusetts wealthy society ladies were not guilty of murder, and if they did kill someone, it would not be with an axe." When questioned, Lizzie gave contradictory accounts to the police, which ultimately helped lead to her arrest and trial, but supporters claimed it may have been the effects of morphine that she had a prescription to take. Much like subsequent famous murder cases, such as the O.J. Simpson case or Leopold
