* 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.

* One of Marvels ''WhatIf'' stories is set TwentyMinutesIntoTheFuture where an aging CaptainAmerica has a final confrontation with a now decrepit and elderly RedSkull, who has kidnapped Caps wife and children as leverage and trapped them with a bomb connected to a deadmans switch hooked to the Skulls vital signs. He then reveals that during his absence, he has sired and raised a son of his own as the new Red Skull, and when their plan falls apart, the son shoots and kills his father to activate the bomb and distract Cap long enough for him to escape and fight another day. True to form, [[SoProudOfYou the Red Skull is proud of his son for being as ruthless and calculating as him]].

* Rare heroic example: the ''Comicbook/{{Runaways}}'' were formed when they found out that their parents were a band of supervillains called the Pride, and after initially just trying to avoid their parents, they ended up having to battle them, resulting in the death of all of their parents [[spoiler:and the one member of their own who had remained loyal to the Pride. It's a bit traumatic since they never actually intended to kill them.]]
** This tradition continued with the later Runaways - while Victor's mother was killed by his father (who happened to be Ultron), Xavin was inadvertently responsible for his parents' deaths, as his attempt to marry Karolina and force peace between their people ended up re-igniting the war between them, resulting in Xavin's homeworld being destroyed, and Klara is effectively an orphan by virtue of outliving both of her parents thanks to her traveling forward to the 21st century.

* In 1995, a prospect sportsman named [[http://archive.apsportseditors.org/contest/2002/writing/over250/over250.enterprise.fifth2.html Lance Butterfield]] snapped on his '''very'' cruel and controlling [[StageMom stage father]] Bill and shot him dead [[TheDogBitesBack after years of mistreatment]]. 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]].
