Notwithstanding that she never used the term "Mother"? They remained cordial? For the last three years they were.

No sir, I don't remember it. Well, I shall have to recall it, for I think they were. That is, do you remember giving that answer?

Sullivan and a neighbor, Mrs. Churchill, were halfway up the stairs, their eyes level with the floor, when they looked into the guest room and saw Abby lying face down on the floor.
Most of the officers who interviewed Borden reported that they disliked her attitude; some said she was too calm and poised.
Despite her "attitude" and changing alibis, nobody bothered to check her for bloodstains. Police did search her room, but it was a cursory inspection; at the trial they admitted to not doing a proper search because Borden was not feeling well.
They were subsequently criticized for their lack of diligence. In the basement, police found two hatchets, two axes, and a hatchet-head with a broken handle.
Lizzie and Emma's friend, Alice Russell, decided to stay with them the night following the murders while Morse spent the night in the attic guest room contrary to later accounts that he slept in the murder-site guest room.
Police were stationed around the house on the night of August 4, during which an officer said he had seen Borden enter the cellar with Russell, carrying a kerosene lamp and a slop pail.
On August 5, Morse left the house and was mobbed by hundreds of people; police had to escort him back to the house. On August 6, police conducted a more thorough search of the house, inspecting the sisters' clothing and confiscating the broken-handled hatchet-head.
That evening a police officer and the mayor visited the Bordens, and Lizzie was informed that she was a suspect in the murders.
The next morning, Russell entered the kitchen to find Borden tearing up a dress. She explained that she was planning to put it on the fire because it was covered in paint.
It was never determined whether it was the dress she had been wearing on the day of the murders. Borden appeared at the inquest hearing on August 8.
Her request to have her family attorney present was refused under a state statute providing that an inquest must be held in private.
She had been prescribed regular doses of morphine to calm her nerves, and it is possible that her testimony was affected by this.
Her behavior was erratic, and she often refused to answer a question even if the answer would be beneficial to her. She often contradicted herself and provided alternating accounts of the morning in question, such as saying she was in the kitchen reading a magazine when her father arrived home, then saying she was in the dining room doing some ironing, and then saying she was coming down the stairs.
The district attorney was very aggressive and confrontational. On August 11, Borden was served with a warrant of arrest and jailed.
The inquest testimony, the basis for the modern debate regarding her guilt or innocence, was later ruled inadmissible at her trial in June Borden's trial took place in New Bedford starting on June 5, Knowlton and future United States Supreme Court Justice William H.
Moody ; defending were Andrew V. Jennings,  Melvin O. Adams , and former Massachusetts governor George D.
This time the victim was Bertha Manchester, who was found hacked to death in her kitchen. A prominent point of discussion in the trial or press coverage of it was the hatchet-head found in the basement, which was not convincingly demonstrated by the prosecution to be the murder weapon.
Prosecutors argued that the killer had removed the handle because it would have been covered in blood. Both victims' heads had been removed during autopsy   and the skulls were admitted as evidence during the trial and presented on June 5, The judge ruled that the incident was too remote in time to have any connection.
The presiding Associate Justice, Justin Dewey who had been appointed by Robinson when he was governor , delivered a lengthy summary that supported the defense as his charge to the jury before it was sent to deliberate on June 20, The trial has been compared to the later trials of Bruno Hauptmann , Ethel and Julius Rosenberg , and O.
Simpson as a landmark in publicity and public interest in the history of American legal proceedings. Although acquitted at trial, Borden remains the prime suspect in her father's and stepmother's murders.
Writer Victoria Lincoln proposed in that Borden might have committed the murders while in a fugue state. Mystery author Ed McBain , in his novel Lizzie , suggested that Borden committed the murders after being caught in a lesbian tryst with Sullivan.
When Andrew returned she had confessed to him, but killed him in a rage with a hatchet when he reacted exactly as Abby had.
McBain further speculates that Sullivan disposed of the hatchet somewhere afterwards. In her later years, Borden was rumored to be a lesbian, but there was no such speculation about Sullivan, who found other employment after the murders and later married a man she met while working as a maid in Butte, Montana.
She died in Butte in ,  where she allegedly gave a deathbed confession to her sister, stating that she had changed her testimony on the stand in order to protect Borden.
Another significant suspect is John Morse, Lizzie's maternal uncle, who rarely met with the family after his sister died, but had slept in the house the night before the murders; according to law enforcement, Morse had provided an "absurdly perfect and overdetailed alibi for the death of Abby Borden".
Others noted as potential suspects in the crimes include Sullivan, possibly in retaliation for being ordered to clean the windows on a hot day; the day of the murders was unusually hot—and at the time she was still recovering from the mystery illness that had struck the household.
After the trial, the Borden sisters moved into a large, modern house in The Hill neighborhood in Fall River.
Around this time, Lizzie began using the name Lizbeth A. Because Abby was ruled to have died before Andrew, her estate went first to Andrew and then, at his death, passed to his daughters as part of his estate; a considerable settlement, however, was paid to settle claims by Abby's family.
Despite the acquittal, Borden was ostracized by Fall River society. She never saw her sister again. Borden was ill in her last year following the removal of her gallbladder ; she died of pneumonia on June 1, , in Fall River.
Funeral details were not published and few attended. The sisters, neither of whom had ever married, were buried side by side in the family plot in Oak Grove Cemetery.
Scholar Ann Schofield notes that "Borden's story has tended to take one or the other of two fictional forms: the tragic romance and the feminist quest As the story of Lizzie Borden has been created and re-created through rhyme and fiction it has taken on the qualities of a popular American myth or legend that effectively links the present to the past.
The Borden house is now a museum, and operates a bed and breakfast with s styling. Various podcasts have covered the history of Lizzie Borden, including Pardon My Enthusiasm: A Horror Podcast episode titled, "Borden, Murderer or Icon?
The case was memorialized in a popular skipping-rope rhyme. Lizzie Borden took an axe And gave her mother forty whacks. When she saw what she had done, She gave her father forty-one.
Folklore says that the rhyme was made up by an anonymous writer as a tune to sell newspapers. Others attribute it to the ubiquitous, but anonymous, " Mother Goose ".
In reality, Borden's stepmother suffered eighteen  or nineteen  blows; her father suffered eleven blows.
The rhyme has a less well-known second verse: . A search of the directory confirms that Sumner was still at his new number.
