11 yrs. old
On Apr. 20, 1915, Evelina was taken to the shed in the back of the house, where her clothes were removed, her arms tightly tied together, and then she was blindfolded. As Evelina sat on a chair, completely helpless, the stepmother forced her to swallow muriatic (hydrochloric) acid until she died. The stepmother first chose to bury the girl, but then decided to throw her body into an alley. Evelina had been reported missing and when the stepmother was questioned by authorities, she gave them conflicting stories. One story was Evelina had died while having an abortion. An autopsy was performed on Evelina where they found burn marks on her back, as well as the appearance of an abortion; but it was found that it had happened after she had died. Later on, the stepmother confessed and was charged with murder.
