Emma Borden was the elder sister of the prime suspect of the infamous 1892 murders of Andrew and Abby Borden. On August 4, 1892, Emma’s father and stepmother were found murdered at their home in Fall River. Emma’s father was an eighth-generation elite-society man. Her biological mother had died when she was 12. Emma and Lizzie had a tumultuous relationship with their father and stepmother. Their regular arguments over property inheritance were regarded as the prime reason for the murders. Along with Lizzie, Emma, too, was suspected of the murders. However, she supported Lizzie during the trial. Both the sisters never married and lived a reclusive life until their deaths. Emma died a few days after Lizzie’s death.
