sion, Lizzie had several reasons to kill her stepmom and dad. The crime scene is another thing that hints Lizzie killed her stepmom and dad. For example, the placement of them is very weird. Andrew was laying on a couch with 11 whacks to his face; Abby was found lying in the floor with 18 whacks to her face, but everything around them was in place (Linder, 2004).
Lizzie Borden took an ax, And gave her mother forty whacks; When she saw what she had done, She gave her father forty-one. The famous rhyme of Lizzie Borden giving her mother 40 whacks and then her father 41. Most people assume she committed the crime, of killing her parents, and that she planned the whole thing though there are some holes in the case. Everybody thinks she committed the crime though no one is sure, one thing is certain there are holes in the case and these holes make me believe that Lizzie did not do the crime. There are so many holes that no one is certain who did the crime.
Have you ever killed some one? Over a 100 years ago Lizzie's parents were brutally murdered by someone and the only person they focused on was the daughter lizzie borden. Lizzie Borden was the axe murderer no doubt about it because all the signs pointed to no other than Lizzie herself. The reason I think Lizzie killed her parents was because she didn't like her stepmother and thought if she didn't kill her father her father would think its her. Lizzie is a true mastermind to have gotten away with murder because there is no other explanation to Lizzie's parents brutal death.
Many events in history have gone unanswered and one of those events was the killing of the Bordens. The book has three separate parts to it and they are all very well detailed. The Borden family consisted of Andrew, the father, Abby the stepmother to Andrew 's daughters, Lizzie and Emma, Andrews two daughters and Bridget, the house maid. They all lived together in Fall River until on August 17, 1892 when Bridget was out cleaning windows, Emma was out of town, and Lizzie was in the back yard a gruesome killing happened. Arnold R. Brown wrote this book primarily to uncover the truth about who killed the couple while either proving or disclaiming theories that have surrounded the story. This book seemed very interesting because there has never been an answer to who killed them and also because even now lawyers can 't find someone to blame for the gruesome killings.
As a consequence, people got hung due to the lies she told just to save herself. Besides all the reasons she could be guilty there are some reasons the show otherwise. The fact that she didn’t have anybody to look up to growing
The records of the people that were killed or put into prison were accurate, and the killing of John Proctor was the same as well. She was “patient zero” in the disease of fear and panic that spread across Salem, for she was the first person to accuse someone of witchcraft. Also, Abigail did appear at trials with the other girls and accused people there. She was a manipulative girl who killed many people who weren’t guilty of anything but being the first name that popped into someone’s
Ruth whispered to her daughter that burglars broke in and tied her up. The neighbors looked for Ruth’s husband and found him faced down bleeding on the pillow. The police then investigated the crime scene and saw that Ruth had no injuries and no bruises to be found. The detectives then found in Ruth’s husband tools having blood. Then Ruth blamed her insurance businessmen named Judd Gray and the police then tracked him down, and he said that Ruth asked him to bring poisoned whiskey, he blamed it all on her.
In 1836, the gruesome death of a prostitute encaptivated the public eye and began a newspaper frenzy that centered on a morbid fixation of the life and death of Helen Jewett. Patricia Cline Cohen's The Murder of Helen Jewett pieces together the facts of Helen's life and death in an attempt to describe gender inequality in America by giving a meticulous account of life in the 1830s. (Insert small biography)
The Indictment this is what you could say the Salem witch trials were all about and this is how Abigail got people found guilty and excommunicated from the church. She scared all of her friends to lie and it almost made them seem subservient to her. She was the first accuser and accused Tituba and after that everything went downhill. The judges seemed like they had a lot of predilection towards her and did not want to listen to the people that were accused unless they admitted to witchcraft.
After a couple of months Abby Borden noticed that her jewelry and about forty dollars was stolen from the house. Both Lizzie and Emma denied having any acknowledgement of how this could have happened. The maid at the time was with Mrs. Borden the entire day and could not have committed the theft. The police began to investigate on the matter, however they were quickly dismissed by Mr. Borden’s request to drop all charges. However hatred still was high among the two girls and Mrs. Borden.
Around the time of the witch trials, the people in Salem were very religious. Rumors were easily spread and it was nearly impossible to prove yourself innocent if people were talking about you otherwise. During the witch hysteria, innocent people were imprisoned and and executed because someone has accused them of being a witch. It is understandable that some would accuse others to save themselves from imprisonment or from possible death. However, I believe Abigail should be held responsible for the imprisonment and execution of innocent people because she threaten the girls, so they would act bewitched and she also lied about getting stabbed by a needle and making it look like as if Elizabeth Proctor did it with witchcraft.
In the play Abby tries to do witchcraft to kill John Proctor's wife Elizabeth. She almost gets caught doing it so she accuses many people of bewitching her and got many people hanged. She accuses Elizabeth of bewitching her to kill her. The court will not kill her because she is pregnant but John Procter ends up being hanged because he was accused.
