While we're on the subject of fascinating and formidable
axe-carrying American women of the past (see "The Hatchet Woman Of Kansas"), allow me to bring up the name and legend of Lizzie Borden.
There are some great websites and books regarding this fascinating "unsolved" double murder. But no hard evidence ever really, finally, labels Lizzie as the culprit.
Did she? Didn't she? Or perhaps only her hairdresser knows for sure!?
Personally, I think Lizzie's guilty as hell!
