This was was the climax to this play. All the audience knows up to this point is that Mr. Wright had been murdered and Mrs. Wright was the only person in the house when his body was found. When it came time to question her, the story she told was completely impractical. It seemed that Mrs. Wright was going to get convicted for sure, but there was no true evidence . If the women show the evidence to the men the play would end with Mrs. Wright being thrown in jail.
In fact, Patsy’s handwriting was only similar on the lowest possible scale and countless numbers of people could also fall into that category (Douglas, 449). There was no evidence of the string found tied around JonBenet’s hands and neck in the home. In addition, strange marks on JonBenet’s body resembled burns left from a stun gun and yet authorities did not find one at the scene and neither parent owned one (New York Times). Other evidence that suggested an intruder included a footprint found near JonBenet and a palm print on the door facing of the wine cellar that did not match those from the Ramsey’s or their friends
The inclusion of these police notes further the belief that Mary is an unstable sociopath, because she was able to believe her own lie that she did not murder her husband, and came across normal, despite the circumstances. As well, the reader experiences dramatic irony in this situation, because the readers knows that Mart killed her husband, while the detectives do
Lady Macbeth puts on a fierce and intimidating front but proves incapable of the egregious act of murder. Macbeth, however, actually commits murder and determines to do any vile deed to fight for the crown. He holds this disposition even until the point of death, unlike Lady Macbeth who dies repentant. Macbeth’s murderous actions and attitude prior to death ultimately demonstrate that he is the worse villain of the
While getting gas Myrtle saw that it was Tom in the car and was upset because she was locked in a room and wasn 't allowed to see anyone. The night then started to come to an
There was no sign of forced entry into the Joseph’s home, which meant that Claire’s killer would have been someone she felt comfortable letting into her home. A recent friend of the Joseph’s, Roger Payne, had earlier convictions for attacks on women. His clothing from the day of the murder, although already cleaned, still contained over 60 wool fibers matching Claire Joseph’s dress that day. Without a murder weapon, and the lack of any other clues, Payne was found guilty of Claire’s murder due to the solid forensic investigation. Case of Leanne Tiernan Murder (Hair) Victim: Leanne Tiernan Suspects: John Taylor, Wayne Keeley What Happened: Leanne Tiernan was found buried in a shallow grave 10 miles from her home.
In 1892, a young woman named Lizzie Borden was accused of murdering her father and stepmother (“Lizzie Borden on Trial” 2). This accusation was influenced by the lack of evidence at the scene of the crime. There appeared to be no murder weapon, very few witnesses, and the house did not show any signs of an intruder (“Lizzie Borden on Trial” 5). Once the scene was investigated, it was determined that the cause of death for both victims was multiple blows to the head by an axe. Two axes were found in the home, and neither had a speck of blood (“Lizzie Borden on Trial” 14).
Both took their revenge on the men that caused their problems. Hamlet killing Laertes could easily be compared to Rosalie’s murder of Royce’s friends and accomplices. In both cases, the victim of the violent outbursts were distraught and impressionable people. Rosalie's murder of Royce's unnamed guards can easily be compared to Hamlet and Polonius. None of them were innocent, but none were involved in the original acts.
But this blow was arrested by the hand of my wife … I withdrew my arm from her grasp and buried the axe in her brain. She fell dead upon the spot, without a groan” (Poe). This is very similar in presentation to how The Tale-Tale Heart presents it, not that big of a deal that you did the act. The narrator kills his wife without a second thought because he wanted to kill the cat, but what I take from it is that he does not care about his wife enough that killing her does not mean anything to him, and that is insanity. In The Tell-Tale Heart the narrator does a very similar thing to what happens in The Black Cat, kills someone with no feelings of remorse for a very arbitrary reason.
19). They are considered as being unable to do anything, which can be especially seen when Clytemnestra confesses to the murder of Agamemnon: “Yes, I have killed him. So there the whole truth lies.” (pg. 70) Even though Clytemnestra publicly admits to committing the murder, she is disregarded as not being able to do something like that: “Some drug has snarled your brains” (pg. 70) or something “must have tangled your feelings into subhuman knots.” (pg.
