      Be wary of people discouraging the possibility of blood on the stairs. No one was necessarily murdered there, but the crime scene was compromised by people traipsing through the house. An axe murder, especially a double axe-murder, is an immensely gory thing. There very well could have been blood on the staircase either from the people who walked through in the aftermath of the crime, the police, those who discovered Abby’s body upstairs, or, let us not discount the possibility, from the killer or killers themselves.

        If you read the testimony from the doctors who initially examined the bodies you will understand that the victims died so quickly that there was very little blood splatter. It’s location and number are specifically spelled by Dr. Willisam Dolan. Blood doesn’t spray out the way it’s depicted in horror movies. As gory as the killings might seem, there wasn’t nearly the mess one might think. Most of the blood oozed out of the bodies after death. There were lots of people in and out and the bodies were moved, especially Abby, but the blood was confined to areas near their bodies and found nowhere else in the house or on the people in it except for a 1/16 inch pin prick sized spot on Lizzie’s underskirt. This was written off to menstrual blood; absolutely no one lacked the Victorian sensibilities to follow-up on this…:-)

    I don’t think anyone was killed on the stairs…

      No? And the person(s) who killed Abby had to walk down the stairs to kill Andrew. Would it not be likely that they tracked blood? Forensics was so great back then that they could quickly determine if a body had been moved? They were unsure even if the coat bunched beneath Andrew Borden’s head had been used as a cover for Lizzie or someone else and then placed beneath his head. They did not use fingerprinting, the science available but in its infancy. They did not immediately close the crime scene, people were walking through it for a long period, possibly, no, probably, tracking the blood around. In any case, the bloody corpse of Abby Borden was brought downstairs. Remember, there was no bathroom, no running water in the house. There was no simple way to clean-up. It would be difficult to move a body out of a pool of blood and not get blood on your hands and feet, if you wiped it off there is the matter of bloody effects to be brought down as well as the rug.
