Reaction to the Borden Case. Public opinion seemed to support Lizzie ’ s innocence, but her neighbors shunned her after the trial. Some thought Lizzie had escaped conviction because her lawyers had skillfully cast doubts on the case of the prosecution and because news reporters had come to like Lizzie. Boston lawyer N. Sumner Myrick wrote, “ Miss Borden seems to have ‘ hoodoed ’ the Court and jury, not forgetting the newspaper men. Had Bridget Sullivan been on trial, I venture to say she would at this moment be confined in a convict ’ s cell. ” A year after the trial Lizzie and Emma moved from their home, where the neighbors did not speak to them, to a more fashionable Fall River address. Free from the constraints of her father and stepmother, Lizzie called herself Lizbeth A. Borden and took an interest in the theater, entertaining friends from the stage and traveling to performances in New York and Boston. In 1905 Emma moved to New Hampshire , spending the rest of her life under an assumed name. She avoided the public eye and any further contact with her sister. Emma and Lizzie Borden died within a few days of one another in 1927.
The boy in the box is the name used to refer to a murder victim who was discovered on February 25, 1957, in a cardboard box. The body of the boy indicated that he was approximately 4- to 6-years-old at the time of his murder. Evidence shows that the young boy was murdered and left in the box in the Fox Chase section of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The boy’s body had been wrapped in a plaid blanket and placed in the box and left abandoned. The boy was discovered once by a muskrat trapper checking on his traps and a second time by a college student who spotted a rabbit in the area, neither reported the incident immediately. The day after his discovery though, the college student finally reported the incident.
