One August morning in 1892 shaped the way the American public would remember Lizzie Borden forever. It was on that morning that Borden's father, Andrew, and stepmother, Emma, were found murdered, the victims of a brutal attack. Lizzie Borden maintained her innocence from the very beginning, but was arrested for the murders nonetheless. In a trial that people still analyze today, Borden was found not guilty of the murders, based largely on a lack of concrete evidence. Did Lizzie Borden get away with murder?
