Poll question: Lizzie Borden took an ax?
Edited on Sun May-30-04 02:42 PM by elperromagico
Was Lizzie Borden guilty of the murder of her father and stepmother in 1892?

If not, who did it?

Sorry, polls are turned off at Level 3.

5. Just do a quick Google of "Lizzie Borden"...
on a Summer's day in 1892 Lizzie's father and Stepmother were bludgeoned to death with an 'axe', (actually a hatchet). There is a wealth of fact and conspiracy you can delve into.

3. The Lizzie Borden Case has been one of those cases where...
the circumstantial evidence built up against her was overwhelming, but w/o todays forensics, it would have been difficult to convict her.

I believe she did it. The motive was there, the applicable tool was there, Lizzie was there.....and she gained a good deal of money and notoriety from the ensuing situation. Her sister left her after a couple of years, and they never spoke again, (after being relatively close).

The case, looked at w/moderm forensic tools and historical data, pretty well put Lizzie in the hot seat. Some evidence is missing...but more than enough, I believe, to convict her in a modern court.

A shadowy Kleeb-like figure is visible in several photographs from the day of the crime...

7. Elizibeth Borden took an ax, and gave her father forty whacks....
And when the Job was nicley done, she gave her mother forty-one!

Yesterday in old Fall River, Mr. Andrew Borden died
And he got his daughter Lizzie on a charge of homicide
Some folks say she didn't do it, and others say of course she did
But they all agree Miss Lizzie B. was a problem kind of kid

'Cause you can't chop your papa up in Massachusetts
Not even if it's planned as a surprise (a surprise)
No, you can't chop your papa up in Massachusetts
You know how neighbors love to criticize

She got him on the sofa where he'd gone to take a snooze
And I hope he went to heaven 'cause he wasn't wearing shoes
Lizzie kindly rearranged him with a hatchet so they say
Then she got her mother in that same old-fashioned way!

But you can't chop your mama up in Massachusetts
Not even if you're tired of her cuisine (her cuisine)
No, you can't chop your mama up in Massachusetts
You know it's almost sure to cause a scene

Well, they really kept her hoppin' on that busy afternoon
With both down- and up-stairs chopping while she hummed a ragtime tune
They really made her hustle and when all was said and done
She'd removed her mother's bustle when she wasn't wearing one

Oh, you can't chop your mama up in Massachusetts!
And then blame all the damage on the mice (on the mice)
No, you can't chop your mama up in Massachusetts
That kind of thing just isn't very nice

Now, it wasn't done for pleasure and it wasn't done for spite
And it wasn't done because the lady wasn't very bright
She'd always done the slightest thing that mom and pop had bid
They said, "Lizzie, cut it out," so that's exactly what she did

But you can't chop your papa up in Massachusetts
And then get dressed and go out for a walk (for a walk)
No, you can't chop your papa up in Massachusetts
Massachusetts is a far cry from New York

No, you can't chop your papa up in Massachusetts
Shut the door, and lock and latch it, here comes Lizzie with a brand new hatchet
You can't chop your papa up in Massachusetts
Such a snob, I've heard it said, she met her pa and cut him dead
You can't chop your papa up in Massachusetts
Jump like a fish, jump like a porpoise, all join hands and habeas corpus
You can't chop your papa up in Massachusetts
Massachusetts is a far cry from New York!

Who do you think did it, then? :)

16. Quit trying to cover up for your murderous deeds.
Edited on Sun May-30-04 03:12 PM by elperromagico
I have evidence that puts you at the scene of the Borden murders, and I'm gonna nail you to the wall!!!

In the words of Sgt. Hartman in Full Metal Jacket: "I got your NAME! I GOT YOUR ASS!!!"
