Today in History: Lizzie Borden Not Guilty!

It was this day June 20, 1893 that accused murderess Lizzie Borden was declared not guilty of murdering her father and stepmother. 

Here's the Providence Evening Bulletin story on that date.

Justice? Freedom? Did she get away with murder?

(Arizona Republican, June 21, 1893 ) See more newspaper clippings and read full page)

Here's my fictional take, based on the real-life events from the murders to the trial and beyond: What if she did it... because she had no other choice?

 About Lizzie Borden, Zombie Hunter:

Every family has its secrets…

One hot August morning in 1892, Lizzie Borden picked up an axe and murdered her father and stepmother. Newspapers claim she did it for the oldest of reasons: family conflicts, jealousy and greed. But what if her parents were already dead? What if Lizzie slaughtered them because they’d become zombies?
