    What Shane said about Lizzie asking the maid to check if the mother had come in. You have to understand shock is something that will mess you up. You don't think think straight when something like that happens

    The reason Mr. Borden didn't scratch Shane was because he didn't steal the coins for the fact of stealing, instead he stole them for proof.

    They *need* to go to the Villisca Ax Murder House in Iowa!! It's a house where an entire family was murdered at night along with guests. There was also NO SIGN of forced entry so it is assumed that the murderer was INSIDE the house when they got back. There is also a movie based on it.

  • Nestor Orozco
    Nestor Orozco 14 days ago

    I think if "Maggie" wasn't asleep i think she must of thought that someone was getting some food or water etc.But if they're's a fall and groaning that wouldn't be normal or she just almost slept at that part.But if she wasn't slept in that part it would be a lie that she was trying to sleep,maybe she had a violent pass with Abby,then axed her over the head,Lizzie had a violent pass with her father axed him over the head,or John knew about Lizzie's father's money killed him stole some money left and never came back.Or Lizzie is a suspect because she said "I'm gonna burn my dress ot has PAINT on it" Maybe it was red paint or it was blood isn't that right?YOUR GONNA BURN JUST A DRESS BECAUSE IT HAS "PAINT" ON IT.If it's blood obv you'll burn it BUT if it is blood dshe is the murder.

    From all the books I've read and shows I've seen Mrs.Borden(Abby ) was murdered before her husband,Mr. Borden.

  • Darcie Mcintyre
    Darcie Mcintyre 14 days ago

    Couldn't the murderers be by Lizzie Borden and John Morse...? Heres why: While Lizzie was outside John could of gone to Andrew Borden While Lizzie was Outside waiting to go in then she could of acted like someone murdered Andrew then while maggie she was getting the neighbors Lizzie could of killed Abby and then she could of had a dress under the dress that she was wearing so she changed into that a played like she didnt do it. So what do you guys think...

    Wait so, the killer had to be in the house when they found the father. Because the maid went downstairs, and then know one was up there nor was the mother, but it was later the mother was killed in the room the maid was in? Lizzie left the house so, I would think it be the maid....
