“Every generation has … that one terrible case that we don’t have any answers to,” New York City Office of the Chief Medical Examiner’s criminalist Andrew Schweighardt said in a statement.

48 Hours will show us what the jury of 12 men saw when the case was presented in court and asks whether they couldn’t believe a woman was capable of murder. Moriarty and 48 Hours will present the case to a jury today to see if they can “separate fact from fable.” Male and female jurors will reexamine the case by hearing the evidence originally presented to 12 men in 1893. Moriarty will also be on the scene while the jury deliberates, in a rare inside look at how people talk their way through the evidence to decide the fate of another human.

The press statement ponders what the jury will find. What if everything we were told was wrong and everything the kids said was true. I want to know what would Lizzie’s parents think.
