On Tuesday, April 10, noted Lizzie Borden scholar Rich Little, author of the critically-acclaimed book Cold Case to Case Closed: Lizzie Borden My Story, guest lectured to WCAS students in "Crime, Criminals, & the Courts."

On August 4, 1892, Andrew Borden and his wife Abby were found mysteriously murdered in their Fall River home with what is believed to be a hatchet.  Their daughter Lizzie was charged with the murders, but found not guilty. 

The murders remain unsolved. Convinced of Lizzie's innocence, Mr. Little meticulously examined for WCAS students the time lines of the horrific murders, discussed his fascinating theories behind them, and made a convincing case for the identity of the real culprit.
