Bridget Sullivan, the house maid had been outside, washing windows, that morning. Oldest daughter, Emma, was away, and Uncle John Morse -- who'd spent the night before with the Borden's -- had a string of unshakeable alibis. That left only Lizzie.
She was arrested, imprisoned for ten months, tried and acquitted of the murders.
Lizzie thought she'd been found innocent, but Fall River deemed her guilty and treated her as a pariah for the rest of her life.
The two sisters lived together for over a decade. Then, something happened that sent Emma storming from the house. Something so awful the sisters never spoke again.
