It's telling that, at Lance's murder trial, it was the ''prosecution'' that was booed by the crowd, and while the defense fielded dozens of character witnesses for [[SympatheticMurderer Lance]], including Bill's own sister and father (the latter writing a sworn affidavit that Lance shouldn't be prosecuted), the prosecution [[ZeroPercentApprovalRate could not find a single person who would testify in Bill's favor]].

* Caril Ann Fugate, the teenage girlfriend of 50's spree killer Charles Starkweather, was allegedly involved in the murders of her mother, stepfather, and sister. Like Lizzie Borden however, it will probably never be known for sure the true extent of her guilt (or innocence) in the case.

* Lizzie Borden (allegedly) in 1892. She was acquitted, and there are a variety of books offering various theories of the case, with a range of possible suspects, including Lizzie's older sister Emma (who if guilty, would qualify as well). As Andrew Borden had been a pretty despicable and hated character who had swindled a lot of people in his business career, the range of suspects should have been pretty large after all.
