Lizzie Borden House
The Lizzie Borden house, and the murders that had taken place there was a location and homicide I always wanted to investigate. The house was bigger than I expected and on a very busy street in Fall River, Massachusetts. The home was decorated in the same style during the time period that the murders took place (1892). The furniture in the home was an exact duplicate from the crime scene. The house was filled with photos of Lizzie, her parents & sister as well as crime scene photos.
Well enough about the house; the local people were very friendly to me, even after they found out I was a die hard GIANTS fan…Lol. The area had a lot of really good Portuguese restaurants and great service. But, man was it cold! We were right off the water near the border of Rhode Island, and it was very picturesque; I definitely want to go back when the weather is more appealing.
This investigation in the beginning seemed like a pretty open & shut case from what I had known about the murders, or should I say what I thought I knew. I was able to obtain several very quite interesting facts about the murders and interview people with vast knowledge of the case as well as Lizzie Borden herself. The people that knew about this case had very opposing opinions on whether Lizzie was guilty or not. I had my own opinion as to her guilt and what I thought was a motive. However, Amy brought something to the table that blew me away and made me reassure my beliefs; NEVER have tunnel vision when conducting an investigation. You guys have to watch this one and listen close; it will make you say, hmm. Till next time, stay safe.
