Lizzie Borden 'Murder House' Sold

The operator of a nationwide ghost tour company has struck a deal to purchase the infamous Lizzie Borden 'murder house' in Massachusetts. The residence, which is located in the city of Fall River, was the site of a grisly double ax murder in 1892 wherein Andrew and Abby Borden were brutally slain and their daughter, Lizzie, subsequently became the prime suspect, sparking a sensational trial which ultimately saw the young woman controversially acquitted for the heinous crime. One of the earliest American true crime stories, the case spawned a slew of books, television programs, and movies over the years and the home became a popular tourist destination.
