Lizzy was acused of killing her parent with an ax. Leaving behind a grousome and bloody scene. The old limeric wrote about her goes like this. From what I read it isn't accurate but it has still followed her through history.
Lizzie Borden took an axe,
And gave her mother forty whacks,
When she saw what she had done,
She gave her father forty-one.
Elizabeth was accused of being a vampire. The reason behind that was the fact that she bathed in her victims blood.
These are two truly questionable women. The acts they commited or didn't commit are beyond imagination. So I will leave it up to you to decide what you believe. Some things we will never know.
