It is one of the most mysterious murder cases in American History. Through all the investigations and proceedings, no one has been able to explain who had done it or why they did it. The assassinations, investigations, and trials have been thoroughly looked at for any missing evidence of the Fall River Murders.

According to Bridget, the family's housekeeper, they had both been vomiting and they believed someone had poisoned them (Pearson 12). The illnesses became quite important after their murders. The events leading up to Andrew and the discovery of his body became significant to the investigations and later in the trials.

Various neighbors had testified that Andrew went shopping and Mrs. Kelly, a friendly neighbor, said she has seen him arrive at his house at around 10:45 in the morning (Sams 20). Investigators concluded that Andrew lied down on the sofa where he was later killed (Pearson 22). Lizzie Borden, Andrew's daughter, had found him dead and swore that she had first gone straight to Bridget. The first person they had gone to was the family doctor, Dr. Bowen (Pearson 23). Finding Andrew's dead body…
