UPDATE: Read “E.J.’s” comments. He shows he did some research and presents some of the same testimony that “Lori K” did.
Some excerpts from “Lori K’s” email (with permission):
Q. Can you tell me about what time it was when your attention was called to the trouble on Second Street?

PH interviews LB but she says nothing of telling BS that Abby had a note and went out or that she ironed hankerchiefs.

NEW ALERT: This morning I received an email with a 2-page attachment outlining “Lori K’s” argument of why the picture is that of Officer Harrington. It shows quite a bit of research and is very persuasive. So as of now, Monday, May 9th, we have a new front runner: “Lori K.” I will try to post some of email later. (Note: This contest will end on Wednesday, May 11th.)
ALERT: As of now, Friday, May 6th, “E.J.” is the front runner for the FREE Rebello book. He presents a rather convincing argument in his comments below (scroll way down).
August 4, 1892 at 92 Second Street, Fall River. It was a Thursday. A very “busy” Thursday for the Fall River Police Department. Photographs had to be taken as evidence and to be studied by the Coroner (Dr. Dolan) and the Marshall (Hilliard). Lots of people were around. Lizzie was upstairs in her room being attended to. Emma was not back from Fairhaven just yet, and police had been swarming in, out and about since shortly after 11:15 a.m.
The crime scene was photographed by James A. Walsh around 3:00. Subsequent to the in-situ photographs, the stomachs were removed by Dr. Dolan and more photos were taken. But the below image has always perplexed me as to who that person is. (Not Andrew, the other guy).
If you can definitively identify the man standing to the far right in this crime scene photo of the butchered Andrew Borden, you will receive a FREE copy of Leonard Rebello’s Lizzie Borden Past & Present.
Anyway, that person’s identity has been speculated upon many, many times. Possibilities include – but are not limited – to those below. One has to really scrutinize who was present in the house when the pictures were taken.
Seriously – the Rebello book. FREE. All you gotta do is convince me who that guy is. Not Andrew. The other one.
