Not that she did it, or that it can be actually proven that she did it given the evidence at hand.

\either she didn't do it, or the other witnesses were in on the cover-up
\\you can't do what she was purported to do in that amount of time

9 Things You May Not Know About Lizzie Borden

It turns out that Lizzie's father and mother never got 40 or 41 whacks.

// The movie as shown in the US never had any naked Elizabeth Montgomery. Somehow I doubt it inspired any whacking.

Lizzie Borden took an axe, and gave her mother forty whacks. And when she saw what she had done, she gave her father forty one. Close your door, lock and latch it, cause here comes lizzie with her hatchet"

The Ballad of Lizzie Borden
by Annette Baker

Miss Lizzie Borden (so they say)
Chopped up her folks one August day.
The experts gave us all the specs:
She lusted after her own sex;
Beheading kittens (two or three)
She regularly did with glee;
She stole the goods she could have bought;
Her music lessons came to naught;
She was a dropout, though 'tis said
She was uncommonly well-read.
She sailed to Europe - that we know
And overspent her budget, so
The girl wired home for extra cash...
Her father wired back, "Balderdash!"
She had to borrow from a friend,
Which set her thinking how to send
Old Andrew up to Heaven's throne
And get his fortune for her own.
Of course, there was one tiny hitch:
His wife - that sly and scheming witch!
He could leave no widowed missus,
For all the money must be Lizzie's.
(She'd share with Sister Emma, who
Was fond of filthy lucre too.)
The plot was hatched, the hatchet ground;
She waited till the time came 'round -
The perfect moment, when the coast
Was clear, and she could make the most
Of Emma's summer interlude,
For poor, dear Emma was a prude,
Who wouldn't sanction shedding blood,
Though Lizzie fancied Emma would
Be all too glad to help her spend
The proceeds of it in the end.
She chose a perfect summer day;
'Twas hellish hot, the stories say.
A houseguest put her plan in doubt,
But handily, he sauntered out
To visit elsewhere in the town.
But then the maid was duty-bound
To wash the windows in and out,
Assuring she would be about
The place and surely interfere
With Lizzie's plan - but never fear -
Our Lizzie was a fearless sort;
She donned her paint-smeared Bedford cord,
Crept noiselessly up the stair,
And slew that "mean old thing" up there;
Rained blows upon her old gray head,
Till she was well and truly dead.
She waited then till Andrew came
From downstreet and gave him the same.
Her trademark frizzy bangs askew,
She chopped and hacked; he got his due.
And then she washed the blood away
And yelled upstairs, "Come down, I say!
For Father's dead; someone came in
And killed him while I looked for tin
To fix my screen - or was it lead
To make some sinkers?" Then she said,
" Fetch the doctor on the double!
Tell him there has been some trouble."
Soon the neighbors came and then
They all asked Lizzie where she'd been.
Her answers didn't fit the facts,
And in the cellar was an axe
With broken handle, and its head
Was rubbed with ashes, so they said.
Some ten months later, she was tried
With three fine lawyers at her side.
The D. A. failed to prove his case,
And Lizzie, in her best black lace
Was asked to stand and face her peers.
" Not guilty!" rang out loud and clear.
So Hip! Hooray! for Lizbeth B.
The jury loved her; so do we.
She bought a house upon the hill
And lived there all her days, but still-
Who did it, if it wasn't she?
We'll never solve that mystery...

Elizabeth Montgomery and Barbra Eden have sent me on many fapping sprees in my youth. I think If I would've seen the 2 of them together, my scrotum would've exploded but I would have died a happy 12 year old.

But it promoted the idea that there was such a thing as a naked Elizabeth Montgomery. There was whacking. Oh yes, there was whacking.

Not bad, but perhaps a little something less... feminist. Plus it would be hard to shake the image of Ted Turner making the "O" face.

And gave her mother forty whacks.
When she saw what she had done
She gave her father forty-one.

Actually it was a hatchet, not an axe. There's a difference.

While it gets a lot less attention, the unsolved 1912 Villisca, Iowa axe murders were even more gruesome, and the details of the case are more bizarre.

More info here.

In 1912 in a small house in Villisca, Iowa, 6 children and two adults were hacked to death by an unknown killer with an axe. Suspects included a state senator, a traveling British minister/pervert, and a drifter. A few little known and bizarre facts about the case:

1) There was a theory at the time that the last thing a person saw before their death was imprinted on their corneas. Because of this, the two little girls who were killed downstairs (who still had their eyes intact) had their eyeballs removed and dissected in an attempt to get an image of the killer.

2) After murdering his 8 victims, the killer went to the pantry and fixed himself a snack. He wrapped up a side of bacon in a dishtowel and left it at the foot of the bed containing the murdered girls in the downstairs bedroom, along with a lamp with the chimney removed. He did the same at the foot of the murdered parents' bed.

3) It's a very small house. (I've been in it.) Upstairs, the kids' bedroom (where 4 children were killed) is right next to the parents' room with no door between. How so many murders could have been committed without waking the others is pretty inconceivable.

More odd facts here.

It's one of America's most heinous and weirdest unsolved murder cases. Not the most famous, for some reason.
