Edmund Kemper/David Berkowitz The murder cases of Edmund Kemper and David Berkowitz have many differences and a surprising number of similarities.

For example, saying that Lizzie Borden killed her parents makes sense when he/she says it, but there is a lot of evidence to prove she has done it. From the documents read, they report that a girl named Eli Bence saw Lizzie asking for a deadly poison called prussic acid, the night before the murders of Andrew and Abby Borden (Linder, 2004).

Faulkner’s story demonstrates totally different plot: there is an own main character, her mental disorder and its consequences for the society. In the case of Emily Grierson the problem appeared to be in the inherited disorder, as “people in our town, remembering how old lady Wyatt, her great-aunt, had gone completely crazy at last” (Faulkner 4); and the citizens’ attitude. Miss Emily felt a pressure from people because of own origins and behavior; and these conditions finally made her to kill Homer Barron, an only potential opportunity for marriage after her father’s death. After the crime Miss Emily was not able to get rid of the body and continued to live with it until her own death. It looked like Baron became the only victim of the character’s madness here.
