It”s been 120 years since Lizzie Borden was acquitted of the hatchet murders of her father and stepmother, so it’s no surprise the media would exploit this case once again.
Until last summer, Shelley Dziedzic, whom I’ve known for many, many years was a tour guide at the Lizzie Borden Bed & Breakfast Museum. She is the one who used to produce those annual August 4th re-enactments at the B&B. Shelley has added “historian” to her credentials, and aptly so, as she is extremely well informed on the case. Her favorite smells are the hatchet cookies made at the B&B and, of course, the ever predictable rose.
The Lifetime Movie Channel’s Lizzie Borden is sure to exploit the slash and slice aspect of the case. I’m fairly certain the Providence Journal will not, but we will see.
