      Now why is that certain? Every account I've ever read has her dying at
      home, including Rebello's impeachable volume, which lists several
      contemporary obits: i.e "Her Death At Home on French Street Last Night"
      in the Fall River Herald News of June 2, 1927. I suspect they got it
      right...

      Lizzie was in Truesdale Hospital in February 1926, and she never
      recovered from that illness. But you can be certain that she died at
      Maplecroft.

      I am extremely aware of the facts of this case, especially the
      Maplecroft period. I have in my extensive true crime library every
      Lizzie Borden book ever written: with the exception of the one I named
      in yesterday's post.

      So why are you under the mistaken impression that Lizzie died in a
      hospital?

      And to my faithful Maplecroft minions: Your patience will be rewarded
      soon enough. Especially Patsy, who has proven herself worthy to the
      tenth power.

      Jeffrey, I think you had a bad dream. Either that or you are not
      aware of the facts at all. It is certain that Lizzie Borden died in a
      hospital, not in her own home.
