The axe murders that shook Fall River, Massachusetts in the summer of 1892, the trial in the New Bedford Courthouse in 1893, and the infamous children’s rhyme that stemmed therefrom:
“Lizzie Borden took an ax
And gave her mother forty whacks,
And when she saw what she had done,
She gave her father forty-one.”
Welcome to Episode 2 of this Trials of the Century series where I’m again joined by @Scott Cardinal – Investigative Historian
to discuss the Falls River murders and Lizzie Borden’s acquittal at trial! We might even have another special guest to join in the discussion…oh, and perhaps also a demonstration to please the viewing audience!
Special guest appearance by @Runkle Of The Bailey!
