Last month, I began spending more time researching my family ancestors via site, where I started a profile like anyone else and was able to fill in a lot of the gaps about my family history that I was never told about before, and what I discovered was definitely shocking. I learned that my 6th cousin (5 times removed) is the infamous Lizzie Borden.

My cousin Lizzie was the main attraction of perhaps the most famous American news story of the past 132 years. She was accused of killing her father and stepmom (Andrew and Abby Borden) in 1892 in their home located in Fall River, MA. She was later acquitted of their homicides after a court battle and lived out the remainder of her life as an outcast in society, despite inheriting her father’s fortune (with her sister Emma) that totaled 8 million dollars in today’s money.

Lizzie Borden Took an Axe Nursery Rhyme

Lizzie Borden took an axe

And gave her mother forty whacks,

And when she saw what she had done,

She gave her father forty-one.

There have been movies made about my cousin, along with many books and articles published subsequently (offering their own versions of what they think really happened) that hundreds of millions if not billions of people have read about or viewed since she passed away in 1927. Unlike everyone else who continues to profit off my ancestor’s story, I made this report free to read, removing my site’s paywall, so as to not profit one cent.

While some have thrown around many names of possible assailant’s guilty of the crime, none of them ever offered up a clear-cut theory that essentially solves this legendary double homicide case.

There is only one person who came remotely close to solving it before I stepped onto the case. Guess what? He dropped the ball.

First thing, I will mention is that like my cousin Lizzie, I am also a red head just as she was. Red hair is very rare in human beings and only comprises 1-2% of the population. So, I guess it took a real rare bird to come along and solve the most notorious case in U.S. history.

I will say that it is my assertion that Lizzie did not carry out the murders herself. In fact, her arms were injured just 7 weeks before the murders occurred (both nearly broken) when a large tub of dishes got dropped on them by a waiter on accident. I myself suffered a serious arm injury last year (severe wrist sprain) and it took 8 weeks before I could even lift up a pen to write again.

In “Lizzie Didn’t Do It” by William Masterson, the author offered up a man named Henry B. Palmer.

He pointed out that Palmer looked eerily similar to the “pale-faced” man witnessed by Dr. Benjamin Handfy to be spotted outside the Borden residence on the morning of the murders. 

What needs to be understood firstly, is that Lizzie was not happy with her father, and had been arguing over the way he spent his fortune, and how frugal he was towards Lizzie and her sister Emma, the latter of which had an alibi that cleared her of the murders since she was not in town when the savagery went down. Andrew Borden would not allow there to be any electricity in the house (despite it becoming commercially available in 1880s), and he was said to have bought property for one of Abby’s family members just prior to having his face turned into mush, and this did not sit well with my cousin, who felt she was being slighted by her own blood.

There have been many accusations against Mr. Borden as to why he got killed, including that he was molesting Lizzie her entire life, but I have found no evidence that supports this claim.

Lizzie wanted more than anything to be accepted by the rich socialite crowd of Fall River, to be one of them, and she was not pleased with the way her father behaved in this regard. She was embarrassed by him.

Ann Jones in Women Who Kill writes that Andrew “made money—lots of it—for the sake of making money. Yet, as a Christian, Andrew Borden knew that money could be the root of all evil—if one took pleasure in money and used it as a source of enjoyment. The trick then, for a good Christian capitalist, was to make money but to enjoy it not at all. And that skill Andrew Borden had perfected.” Andrew’s tightwad ways, she continues, meant the Borden house lacked “those amenities one might reasonably expect in the household of a man who was well on his way to becoming a millionaire” including “even a toilet.”

The Borden home did not even have a telephone.

It is my belief that my cousin suffered from ‘mental cruelty’ under her father not sexual or physical abuse. It drove her to the point of temporary insanity.

This year in 2024, believe it or not, a California woman avoided prison time after stabbing her boyfriend over 100 times during a psychotic episode induced by cannabis consumption. She only got probation.

When the murders happened, Lizzie hired a private detective who worked for Pinkerton Agency, which is the precursor to the CIA and the FBI. This is very telling. Along with the fact that her attorney during the court trial was the same exact attorney that Henry B. Palmer hired to represent him in his criminal case.

That man is named Andrew Jennings. He was the Director of Union Savings Bank.

He was a member of the school committee of Fall River from 1915 to 1878 and served in both the Massachusetts House of’ Representatives and state senate. He was elected district attorney for the Southeastern District of Massachusetts, holding that office from 1894 to 1898. A life-long resident of his native city, he was active in civic and church affairs and was a member of various professional organizations. He served for a time as president of the Fall River Bar Association. He was a trustee of Brown University and was identified with several Fall River corporations, being a director of the Globe Yarn Mills, the Sanford Spinning Company and the Merchants Manufacturing Company. He was also a director of the Union Savings Bank. He acted as Miss Lizzie A. Borden’s attorney from the time of her arrest. As a member of the legal team which represented her at the trial, he delivered the opening statement for the defense.

Mr. Jennings said during the trial that it was not physically possible for Lizzie to carry out the attacks without the help of someone else. He also referred to the real killer as the “Devil”.

Lizzie Borden’s Lawyer’s Notes Released –

The policeman who worked the Lizzie Borden case was a freemason. His name was John Fleet. Despite the fact that fingerprinting was already being used in other parts of the world at this same time, Mr. Fleet’s Fall River police squad did not choose to test any weapons found for fingerprints. Very suspicious. He also failed to find the real weapon, because my forensic analysis concludes that these brutal murders where skulls were literally caved in, would have taken brute strength from a male adult and a longer handle swinging hammer (not an axe) with a handle intact which is needed to generate that type of force to break through a skull.

There is no possible way that Lizzie Borden did that kind of damage herself standing at 5 foot 4 and 135 pounds, and not show any signs of trauma to her hands or major blood evidence. There was none found of either after she was confronted by police. One important thing to remind readers of, Abby Borden was determined to have been killed one hour earlier than Andrew Borden. That means that Lizzie and the maid Bridget Sullivan were on location at the home for the duration of the killings and easily would have heard and/or seen the attacks going down. Lizzie said at one point she spent 20 minutes or so in the barn looking for fishing equipment to take on a trip she had planned, and the maid was washing windows. There is no way that they did not know what was going down inside the home.

Officer Fleet was a member of the Mt. Hope Lodge of Masons, Odd Fellows and Puritan Lodge, K.P. 

The prosecutor in Lizzie’s court trial was also a freemason. Do you see where this is all going? Now you can maybe better understand how the cover up was carried out so successfully.

William Henry Moody was a member of Saggahew Lodge in Haverhill, Massachusetts. He was also a member of Pentucket Chapter Royal Arch Masons and Haverhill Commandery, Knights Templar.

As the story goes, the prime suspect Henry B. Palmer was NEVER BROUGHT IN FOR QUESTIONING by Fall River police. He was a bank teller who was accused of embezzling money from the Fall River National Bank during his employment from Jan. 1892 to March 1893.

Mr. Masterson himself initially developed a theory that Andrew J. Borden became privy to Palmer’s embezzling scheme and was attempting to blackmail Palmer. With that angle, this makes all the sense in the world that Lizzie would be able to approach Palmer to pull off the killings.

This is where the best part comes in. Mr. Palmer attended the Masonic ball and other events, and it’s said Lizzie was in attendance at these events as well.

Esoteric freemasons site explains what this event is all about:

The History of the Masonic Ball

The Masonic Ball has a long and interesting history.

Originating in the 17th century, it was originally a celebration of the Freemasons, an international fraternal order dedicated to brotherhood and service. The ball was an annual event in which members of the fraternity would come together to celebrate their fellowship and shared values. Over time, it became more popular and was eventually adopted as a formal social event by both Masons and non-Masons alike.

At its core, the Masonic Ball is essentially a formal celebration of friendship. Members of the fraternity gather together to celebrate their shared values and camaraderie. It’s an opportunity for people to come together in a festive atmosphere and enjoy each other’s company. In addition to being an opportunity for socializing, it also serves as a way for members to recognize each other’s hard work and accomplishments over the course of the year.

The most important thing to understand above all else is that Freemasons are anti-Christ, even though they will show outward signs to the public that they are not. They are the brotherhood of death.

In his only partially correct assessment, Masterson conjectured no actual ‘physical evidence’ could tie Mr. Palmer to the Borden murders. The only problem is that he was not smart enough to follow through on investigating the real weapon that was responsible for the Borden murders. I did. That is the difference between a real investigative reporter and one who only looks to profit off the case by selling a book.

In a 1929 Fall River news article, a hammer was discovered by a man who was hired to do a demolition of the barn behind the original Borden family home. It was hidden away, so no other owner of the house after The Borden’s resided there would have known it was there. Why did the Fall River police not find this weapon, that had a fully intact handle attached to it as opposed to the broken handled axe that was found in the residence after the crimes?

The long handle hammer dropped out of a loft of the old barn out back and a worker named Harold Gifford doing demolition found it. The instrument was reportedly sent to a chemist to see if stains on the hammer were human blood that possibly tied to the Borden murders but not for fingerprints. The barn was said to have been searched thoroughly by Fall River police, yet they somehow missed finding the hammer. Along with the fact that the police failed to find this weapon that seems much more in line with the damage that was done to the victims due to the long swinging handle that is not broken off. The weapon the police did find in the Borden home was an ‘axe missing a handle’.

The hammer found in 1929 two years after Lizzie died would definitely be able to cause the type of damage that was done to the Borden’s skulls. The other axe type devices others considered would have just split everything apart and caused decapitation, in my opinion. This did not happen. Although, Mr. Borden’s face was said to look like “piled up hamburger”, there was still no decapitation. Think of the term “splitting wood into pieces”…

I also came across expert testimony that it is impossible for a human to break off the handle of an axe without the help of some other equipment, like a vice, due to the type of wood used being way too strong for a human to break off no matter the force being used.

Again, I repeat that while the 1929 swinging hammer was tested for blood, it was not tested for fingerprints. And even if it was, there is no guarantee the assailant’s latent prints would remain on the weapon 37 years after the original murders were committed. Keep in mind that the blood could have easily been rinsed off after the killings, but the fingerprints generally would have remained in the initial years it remained in the barn most likely. Certain factors can degrade the prints on a weapon over time and make them impossible to retrieve after the fact. The cover up was sealed when the corrupt Fall River cops never even attempted to lift prints off the 1929 discovered weapon. borden&i=f&d=01011800-12312021&m=between&ord=k1&fn=fall_river_herald_news_usa_massachusetts_fall_river_19290406_english_1&df=11&dt=20&cid=2892

Masterson’s own original theory gave up scant background info about Henry B. Palmer, so I did some digging and here is what I have uncovered.

Henry B. (Buffinton) Palmer (1864-1950)

Henry’s father, George Ware Palmer, was a bookkeeper at the Richard Borden Mfg. Co. and later he worked as the assistant bookkeeper at the Union Cotton Manufacturing Co.

He was also involved in the insurance & real estate business with offices in the Troy Building & the Mason Bldg.

Henry was employed by the Fall River National Bank as a messenger/clerk from 1883-1885.

He was employed as a teller from 1886-March 1893.

The assistant cashier who worked alongside Henry was named Charles B. Cook. During his tenure working at Fall River National Bank, Cook was also employed as secretary & treasurer at the Troy Co-operative Bank.

Andrew J. Borden was then President of the Troy Co-operative Bank.

In 1886, both banks were located in the same building. 

It is safe to say that Henry Palmer and Andrew Borden were both well acquainted with one another.

Fall River Daily Evening News, pg. 2, July 22,1884: Henry traveled to Westport Harbour with five other young man from Fall River, including Edward Shove (Edward was the brother of Ellen M. Shove who went on the Grand Tour with Lizzie Borden).

According to The Fall River Daily Herald, pg. 4, March 14, 1890: Henry B. Palmer and wife attend the Masonic Ball.

During the period of 1890-1892, Palmer was involved with two fraternal endowment societies in Fall River. In Feb.1890, he was elected supreme secretary of “The Sons and Daughters of America,” and in January 1891, he was elected treasurer of “Royal Order of the Ark”.

Both secret societies were the subject of ongoing investigations for misappropriation of funds and insurance fraud. Newspaper articles regarding both societies flooded the newspapers.

The Commissoner of Insurance, George Merrill, called them “schemes.” The Aug. 1, 1891 article on page 1 of The Fall River Daily Herald goes into specific detail about the “Royal Order of the Ark.”

After her acquittal for the murders, Lizzie moved into a new home in a nice part of the city and named it Maplecroft, along with her sister Emma, who ultimately would move away from her sister soon after and never spoke with her ever again.

In the end, a New York Times editorialist blasted the “vanity of ignorant and untrained men charged with the detection of crime” in smaller cities–the police in Fall River, the editorial concluded, are “the usual inept and stupid and muddle-headed sort that such towns manage to get for themselves.”
