What are you looking forward to seeing on the first season of The Defenders?
Did you know that this year marks the 125th anniversary of the slayings of Abby and Andrew Borden, killed in their Fall River, Massachusetts home? Lizzie Borden was acquitted of the murders of her father and stepmother, but some people question her innocence all these years later, and have their own theories on what happened. Since I recently visited the scene of the crime (now a bed and breakfast), I thought I would write this edition of True Crime Corner (at least part of it anyway) from there. And if you’ve never been there, go visit, I recommend it!
