The story of Lizzie Borden is one that has been told many times over the years. Lizzie was a Sunday school teacher who lived with her parents. One day, she came home and found both her father and stepmother dead. Although many people were questioned as suspects, many pointed the finger at Lizzie.
Nothing was taken from the home at the time of the murders and Lizzie’s whereabouts during the murders was unknown. The real murderers were never found and the murders remain a mystery to this day.
The Borden home is supposedly haunted to this day and operates as a bed and breakfast where visitors can sleep in the same home where Lizzie’s parents were murdered. The film will take viewers back to the time of the murders and show what went on during Lizzie’s trial and in her life. Watch Christina Ricci nail the role of Lizzie Borden when the movie premieres on Lifetime on January 25.
