FALL RIVER, Mass. (TND) — August 4, 2022, marks 130 years
since Lizzie Borden’s father and stepmother were killed in their
Massachusetts home.

The double homicide remains one of the most notorious unsolved murders in American history.

Borden was accused of killing her father, Andrew, and stepmother,
Abby, in their home at 230 Second St. in
Fall River. She was later acquitted but many people believed — and still believe — she
committed the crimes.
