Ed Gein






 
Ed Gein was born in Wisconsin in 1906. He is commonly known as The “Plainfield” Ghoul” and “The Mad Butcher”.  In 1944 Gein’s brother was found dead from head trauma and smoke asphyxiation.  Gein had lead police to the body, but claimed that he had passed away due to a botched burning of a marsh.  The police ruled out fowl play and Gein was never charged with the murder.  Gein had a very close relationship with his mother, and upon her death in 1945 he had lost the one friend in his life.  Gein’s began to become more and more withdrawn after his mother’s death.  
Gein began to make nocturnal visits to a local cemetery and exhume bodies.  Police did not become aware of his actions until 1957, when a local hardware store owner went missing.  Police eventually suspected Gein and got a search warrant for his home.

When Gein was finally arrested police walked into a horrifying scene.  Inside Gein’s house they found: Nine masks made of human skin, human skin covering several chair seats, a belt made of female nipples, two decapitated heads, and several female heads with the tops sawed off.  These freakish discoveries shocked police and 

Gein was found guilty of first degree murder and eventually died in prison 1984

Ed Gein inspired the following films:

Deranged
In The Light Of The Moon
Psycho
The Texas Chainsaw Massacre
Silence Of The Lambs
