It is said everyone has a double and there’s plenty to go around in the Lizzie Borden case. Facial resemblances here are based on the shape of the head, nose, eyes, mouth, bone structure, placement of ears and distance from eyes to chin, types of ear lobes, arching of eyebrows, and on and on. Sometimes the similarities are just what we want to see and to others, no resemblance at all. I find the following uncanny. I’ll be posting more of these at a later date. They’ve surfaced before but not all together.
