Guess what Bridget was not questioned. Lastly, little was known about the murderers, but they just assumed that she did. There was no evidence that she did it she was just blamed. People might say that she had a motive and that is enough to prove it. In Lizzie Borden: Murderess or Media Sensation it states that “There was no physical evidence linking her to the murders” There was no evidence that she did the murders.
Justine did not commit the crime, but she was urged to confess so she would not go to hell. "Justine Moritz! Poor, poor girl, is she accused?

Another character from
Murder, the unlawful premeditated killing of one human being by another. Premeditated means that the killing of the person was planned out, this helps support that Adnan Syed is not guilty. In 1999 an eighteen year old girl named Hae Min Lee went missing from Baltimore, Maryland. Her ex boyfriend Adnan Syed was accused of murdering her and disposing her body in Leakin park. The problem is that all the evidence used to persecute Adnan does not add up to make a strong case.
For the first major difference between the stories, the two men were murdered by their wives, but the weapons were on opposite extremes. In “Lamb to the Slaughter,” the fuming wife had murdered her husband by knocking him in the back of the head with a frozen solid lamb leg. He was easily, and instantly out cold. Next, in “A Jury of her Peers,” the wife was also upset, but slyly killed him in his sleep. She waited until he was asleep, slipped a rope around his neck, and choked him to death.
She suffered from severe bipolar disorder and anorexia and to make matters worse her parents had limited health insurance. But no amount of hardship is an excuse for what she did.

Together they planned a road-trip/killing spree intending to shock the world before disappearing over the border.
The most convincing evidence is old recording of a conversation between Hodel and an unknown person which Hodel states “ Supposin i did kill the Black Dahlia. They couldn’t prove it now. They can’t talk to my secretary because she is dead” (Black Dahlia). With all this evidence pertaining to Dr. George Hodel it’s easy to see why some people say he was the killer. To sum up people believed that George Hodel used his medical experience to kill and dissect her and left her for dead then other people believed he killed more people and decompose them in his
Ed actually picked up many hitchhikers and released them ("Edmund Kemper Biography" 1). He did this mostly to see if he was able to keep his sanity and resist his urge to kill. He picked up two females and drove them to where they wanted to go (“Murder, No Apparent Motive). He even went passed where he killed his first two victims (“Murder, No Apparent Motive). He was able to resist the urge to kill and dropped them off safely, being sane he whole time (“Murder, No Apparent Motive).
“Lizzie Borden took an axe, gave her mother forty whacks. When she saw what she had done, she gave her father forty-one” (Miller introduction). This horrific song was derived from the famous murder case in 1892. The victims, Andrew and Abby Borden, were murdered in their home on the fourth of August. The suspect, their own daughter, Lizzie Borden.
When all the details are looked at and inspected it becomes clear that she was not being held hostage which raises the question, Who killed her? and why. So, over the course of my paper I will be discussing the different people who might have killed her and what their motives may have been. Along with the different suspects I will be covering the investigation and how different theories of her death came around. Some of the most popular theories is that her mother or brother killed her in a fit of rage, and the murder was covered by her family.
Based on the information in “The Story of an Hour”, Mrs. Mallard very well could have murdered her husband, to little surprise of the reader. No one would have been surprised to read that Mrs. Mallard later killed her husband had she not perished from her heart condition. After finding her freedom, and experiencing it for a short while, Mrs. Mallard may have the motivation to take back her new found independence. Then it would have been her house the neighbors, sheriff and county attorney would have been rummaging through. Conversely, had Mrs. Wright decided to relieve herself from her burdens by taking her own life, then it would be her who escaped and gained freedom through
Sadie Grimes is smart and patient.

According to the Double Jeopardy clause of the Fifth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, a person cannot be prosecuted twice for the same crime. The movie of the same name, involves a wife, who is prosecuted at the beginning of the movie for the alleged murder of her husband.

Even if she wasn’t seen killing her husband in the beginning, in the eyes of the law, the evidence showed she did.
