Some people think that it was Lizzie that was responsible for the murders of her father, and stepmother. Other people think that it was a young man noticed in the neighborhood. Why would that strange young man kill them? I think that that it wasn't Lizzie or that strange man. I just think it was someone who didn't like the Borden's because maybe, they were jealous because the Borden's were rich. My reason is that the killer killed the Borden's with a hatchet not an ax. My second reason is because the police don't have enough evidence to prove it was Lizzie or anyone else. Maybe they killed themselves. Finally, my last reason Lizzie moved out the house her parents were killed in. If I were Lizzie I would have done the same thing.

Lizzie Borden had always been stealing from a store every time the owner's son would see Lizzie stealing something he wouldn't worry about it.

He would just put it on her father's credit card, because he was rich. The owner's son wouldn't really care if she stole something from his father's store. That day Lizzie went into the store and stole an ax. But to look like if she didn't steal anything she bought nails, but it didn't matter because the storeowner's son had seen the ax in her basket. The killer or killers killed the Borden's with a hatchet not an ax.

Also, I think she didn't do it. Because the police didn't have enough evidence that Lizzie killed them or anyone else killed them. People are saying that Lizzie killed her father and step mom because she didn't like them. So they can't blame her that she killed her parents.

Finally, my last reason is because she moved out of her house, the house that her parents were killed in. I would have done the same thing too. With the money that Lizzie and her sister Emma bought a 13-room house. People think that is another piece of evidence, because she took the money and bought a new house with 13 rooms. I just think she moved out of the house because her parents were killed in that house.

In conclusion, I think Lizzie isn't guilty. Even if the police didn't have enough evidence to prove it was Lizzie. I still and always will believe Lizzie didn't commit the murders. Until they find enough evidence to prove, it was Lizzie. Do you think it was Lizzie?
