The Grace murder was Waldens Lizzie Borden case, and author Lisa Melville offers a fascinating snapshot of a villages past as she chronicles one of the most infamous murders of its time. Murder was a rare occurrence in the small village of Walden, New York, 60 miles north of Manhattan. The Grace case was scandalous, involving sex, lies and a violent murder which rocked Walden, a small riverside community known for manufacturing knives. The Lizzie Borden case is still one of the most famous murder cases in America. The Grace case possessed similarly startling characteristics to the Borden case in the violence of the murder and family connection, but it also involved bigamy. Grace not only abandoned his first wife and three children, but he married a second woman and left her while she was pregnant with their child. He also stole her familys money to make his escape. Grace used this money to help finance a new life for himself in Walden, a life that included yet another wife. Despite the titillating facts of the murder, the Grace case has nearly been forgotten. Until now.
