    ugh all these 'ghosts' dont bother to show themselves to ryan & shane because they have very low level of consciousness. and they also keep making fun of the 'ghosts' and the tragedies that happened to them. if it were me, i dont want to have anything to do with people who want to engage with me just for youtube views and cheap thrills, not becasue they truly care about whether or not these spirits are at peace

    My theory(i have multiple theories supporting each outcome)Maggie was the killer.Ok,so.When lizze was outside maggie was just pretending to sleep.she got up and went downstairs where mr.borden was sleeping.she hacked him to death so that mrs.borden could hear.maybe it was a mistake that mrs.borden heard the sounds and maggie had to kill all witnesses(wheeze)or she did that to get the attention of mrs.borden and because lizze was outside even though she could've called lizze she still ran to maggie's room where maggie was pretending to sleep while waiting for mrs.borden and killed her too.As a cover up maggie might have tried to frame lizze by a)painting the dress or b) using the actual blood or c) some other method.but it still isnt clear to me that why would she do something like that i mean, she isnt being used like a slave yet only a maid.

    I think Lizzie killed her father, called for the maid, told her not to say anything otherwise she’ll kill her too, stepmother came in and saw her husband dead and Lizzie in a bloody dress, ran upstairs Lizzie chased her and killed her, then got the maid to help her change her dress, then told the maid to go get a doctor... but if she came back with the neighbour then that means John Morse really was with the doctor..... maybe, I’m not sure

    I think that People who died either naturally or by choking on something etc... don’t have as prominent ghosts because if your murdered you have unfinished business with your murderer but if you choked or something you have no reason to stay haunting these people you are free to leave if you were murdered revenge is wanted/needed to move on

    Probably my favorite unsolved murder mystery of all time. Though imo I feel like this case would been much better as a True Crime episode rather than a Supernatural. The trial/aquittal that came afterward is half of what makes this case so interesting

  • Vivi Fischer

    WAIT. Maybe The girl who found the father dead removed the handle so her fingerprints or something wouldn’t be on it. But also in this case why wouldn’t she just dispose of the whole axe? Maybe wanted some evidence that an axe was involved? Was the handle already lose? Did it come off in her parents head because the axe stuck in it. In this last case she hit them with the axe and the metal part got stuck in the head. She tried pulling but it wouldn’t come out. With one last tug the handle came off. She disposed of it and tried to remove the metal part of the axe. When she did she realized she didn’t know what to do with it and tried to hide it downstairs. So maybe this is a possible case?
    Just saying

    There's a theory that suggests Lizzie Borden's father physically abused her and she killed her parents because of the abuse she experienced. I think this theory is much more likely than the idea that she killed them because she wanted money. If going by the theory that she was abused, I can't imagine the pain she felt that was so unbearable she had to kill her parents to keep herself safe, but I firmly believe this was the case. I really don't like how Lizzie Borden is portrayed as a cold hearted demon and doesn't have any human emotion. Idk, this is just my personal take on it...

    What if all 3 were in on it? Lizzie was outside keeping watch (her dad was a wealthy businessman and probably always expecting a guess). I mean, how exactly does someone slip pass her in daylight while she’s outside? The uncle uses his meat cleaver to kill the two parents. Who was the sick family member, and did no one ask questions about the doctor that was supposed to be with him but was actually looking over the 2 parents? The maid cleans up and/or makes a convenient eyewitness clearing Lizzie’s name. Maybe they had a fling, but I think her being a witness that exonerates Lizzie is the more important aspect of the story. Lastly, the sister is out of town during the murders, thereby exonerating her of the charged. Then they all get what they want: money and a steak dinner. There’s way too many inconsistencies and coincidences in all their stories for them to be innocent.
