    So, it may have been Maggie who killed Mr and Mrs Borden because:
    When the murders happened Lizzie heard noises; she was outside. Maggie didn’t hear anything despite being in the house
    Apparently Mr and Mrs Borden overworked Maggie and we’re mean to her.
    When the police entered the place they saw Maggie washing a dress with blood on it but they quickly dismissed her because she said it was from her period.
    Lizzie could have killed Mr and Mrs Borden because;
    Her answers weren’t consistent.
    She told Maggie to go upstairs to check if Mrs Borden was there because she heard her go up.
    It might have been Lizzie’s uncle because;
    His alibi was crap. He was seen before and after the murder. He said he was visiting a sick friend with the town doctor but at the time the town doctor was checking the bodies.
    It could have been Lizzie, Her uncle and Maggie who killed Mr and Mrs Borden because:
    The dress Maggie was seen cleaning that had “period blood” on was actually blood from the killing.
    Lizzie burnt her other dress. That may have been to hide the evidence. Maggie helped Lizzie change.
    How could Lizzie hear sounds from the house when she was outside but Maggie who was inside awake upstairs couldn’t.
    They both hated Mr and Mrs Borden. They were horrible to Maggie. Lizzie was jealous. Maggie and Lizzie were in love but they knew that they wouldn’t be accepted. Lizzie’s uncle helped out because Mr Borden divorces his sister. Also the failing livestock business.

  • LlamaQueen

    I think that lizzie had something to do with the murders, because if she saw her fathers very mashed up dead body on a couch you would scream, but the fact she said 'Come quick!Fathers Dead, someones come in and killed him.' Makes it seem almost practiced. And that she said 'someones come in and killed him' makes me think that she did it because if i saw my father dead i would automatically suspect the maid or the stepmother did it, yet she went straight to someone coming in only because the door was open, yet she could of just not closed the door properly. Because she knew it wasnt them, yet she wanted to have something to blame.Since the maid was partially asleep she could of easily went upstairs and knocked out her mother, And when the maid went to get the doctor/neighbour she could of easily crept upstairs and killed her mother.BUT! Another theory is that the maid witnessed the murders from lizzie, and lizzie could of threatened to kill her aswell if she told anyone.

    I think the step mother killed the father for money and Lizzie saw it then killed her 🤪😊

  • Sabrina Dugan

    This is a no-brainer. The housekeeper, Bridget, killed the step mother after the step-mother criticized her bed-making skills. She got herself a hatchet from the barn, went back into the house, walked up behind Mrs. Borden, in the bed room...and drove the hatchet into the back of her head. Lizzie discovered what happened, and quick-thinking Lizzy told Bridget that she had to kill her father OR she would have to notify the authorities and tell them what she did to the step-mother. This was Lizzys' way out of a boring life with her father and a way to get his money. That's why Lizzy didn't have a drop of blood on her dress anywhere.....because Lizzy didn't do the murders...Bridget did. That's why Bridget disappeared for several years after the murders. This is an easy solve. WHO was in the house that day. The upstairs of the house was strange. All the rooms were connected....meaning you had to enter one room to get to another. Nobody in that house had any privacy.....weird.

    There should be another one for the Lizzie Borden house. A supernatural (this one) and True Crime because no one really knows who killed them. It’s obvious but it still deserves a True Crime one

    When Maggie went out to get the doctor, Lizzie probably killed her stepmother.

  • Scarlett Plays Games and More

    With that theorie about Lizzie and Maggie working together could be true because
    When Lizzie went out she could have went to a shed ( Or something) and grabbed a axe
    went back in then killed her father.
    and she could have gave the axe to Maggie to kill her Step Mother ( Mrs.Borden )
    and then cleaned the axe .
    So it could be true.
    But this case could be forever U.N.S.O.L.V.E.D

  • Yvanna Warneke

    To be honest I have a gut feeling that Lizzie and Maggie would have had killed the married couple and that would have explained how she had no spot's on her dress that she had on and Maggie was in her room asleep when it happened so how did she not hear them scream I mean Lizzie heard it and she was outside!!!!

  • Layne D.
    Layne D. 12 days ago +1

    I actually feel as if the spending of the money by purchasing a new house was justified and not at all suspicious. Lizzie and her sister were obviously still living at home with their father as 32 and 41 year old women, that did not make their own money, or at least enough in any way to purchase their own house, again seen as Lizzie was upset when her father bought her step-aunt a home, not for her and her sister instead. Plus, with their house turned into a murder/crime scene, I'm not surprised the two of them wanted to move out as FAST as possible.

    Think abour this long and hard... Maggie she's not in there family mabye she doesn't like working for them... lizzie was outside, as Maggie was "sleeping" she could have took the axe and killed Andrew, opened to screen door to see if Lizzie was still outside, Abby must have saw and ran up stairs (something like that) and ran upstairs to kill her. Quickly eather change or wash up the blood while staying "dry". Maggie played along as being not guilty, as Lizzie wanted to leave the crazy life... Dun dun dunnn... thank you -_-
