August 4 - 1892 - Andrew and Abby Borden are Murdered
Lizzie Borden is probably the most famous axe murderer in American history. The only problem with that is Lizzie Borden did not actually kill her father and stepmother with an axe. Although she was the only person ever brought to trial for the murders, Lizzie Borden was acquitted of the murder of her father and stepmother due to the evidence against her being extremely weak. Nonetheless, Lizzie Borden has come down through history as the psycho killer who murdered her parents with an axe, even if it can only be explained with bizarre and complicated theories.
