Growing up, our mom would tell us more about serial killers than she would about nursery rhymes.
Lizzie Borden was one of the very first murders she told us about. In fact, she even taught us the rhyme:
Lizzie Borden took an axe, gave her mother forty whacks.
When she saw what she had done she gave her father forty-one.
Now although this is an inaccurate account of what happened, it is true that more than likely back in 1892, a woman by the name of Lizzie Borden killed both her stepmother and her father with a hatchet.
This is one hell of a murder mystery that we highly recommend you tune into.
Let us know what you think, was Lizzie guilty or no?
