The Most Infamous Unsolved Mysteries in History


The Lizzie Borden Murders: Part 1

On August 4, 1892, a wealthy businessman by the name of Andrew Borden, 66, and his second wife Abby were discovered brutally hacked to death in their home in Fall River, Massachusetts. Andrew’s youngest daughter, Lizzie, 32, was home when the murders occurred, but she was supposedly in the backyard barn. The only other person home at the time of their death was the Borden’s maid, Bridget Sullivan, who claims she was in her third-floor bedroom taking a nap. She awoke when she heard Lizzie calling for help from the first floor. When she ran downstairs, she saw Lizzie overlooking her dead father, who was lying on the couch – his face nearly hacked in two. Lizzie’s stepmother was later discovered in a second-floor bedroom, and the police came to the scene. After searching the house, authorities found a hatchet, similar to the one used on Andrew and Abby. Mounting evidence began to point suspicion towards Lizzie, and she was arrested on August 11, 1892.
