Coming Tomorrow: Lizzie Borden

June 21, 1893, Lizzie Borden

June 21, 1893: Lizzie Borden is found not guilty of killing her father and stepmother.

Since it’s August, I thought it would be interesting to go through a few clips on the Lizzie Borden case.

    I grew up reading my grandmother’s Edmund Pearson true-crime books of the 1920s and ’30s, he was obsessed with Lizzie Borden. By the time I was 13, I knew every in and out of that case.

    I am still not 100% sure who dunnit . . . 80% of me says Lizzie, 15% says the maid, and 15% says someone else.

    Another 10% says “remember why you failed math class?”

    How oddly comforting to remember that there were idiot juries, then, too.
